Seltsame Fall des Dr  Jekyll und Mr  Hyde

Seltsame Fall des Dr Jekyll und Mr Hyde

'Der seltsame Fall von Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde' - dieser etwas behäbig klingende Titel läßt kaum vermuten, daß sich dahinter eine der aufregendesten Erzählungen der Weltliteratur verbirgt. Auch der Ruhm des Autors Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), dessen Schatzinsel zu den berühmtesten Abenteuerromanen der Weltliteratur gehört, steht dieser Erwartung eher im Wege. Aber wirklich - Der seltsame Fall gehört zu den Schlüsseltexten unseres Zeitalters. Die Erzählung ist spannend wie ein Kriminalroman - und sie ist in gewisser Weise einer! Darum darf hier über ihren Inhalt auch nichts mitgeteilt werden. Wesentlich zu erwähnen bleibt die Neuübersetzung, die sich ganz besonders dicht in Wortlaut und Atmosphäre am Original orientiert. Das Original ist im Paralleldruck ebenfalls parat!
