Dr.Jekyll and Mr Hyde - A true story !
Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a story which takes place in London in 1885 and 1886 . London was the largest city in the world at that time . It was a centre of industry and also a great port .
In 1885 , there were no cars in the streets of London. Carts and carriages were pulled by horses . Cabs were taxis pulled by horses . There were no telephones at that time and people sent messages in letters . The streets of London were lit at night by gas lamps . There were no electric lights until the beginning of the twentieth century .
In this stroy , Henry Jekyll is a rich and clever doctor who lives in the centre of London . He has a large house and many servants . He does not have to work because he is rich . He spends his time studying science and medicine in his laboratory .
The main reasons for which i decided to introduce you to the universe of Robert Louis Stevenson's " Dr. Jekyll Hyde and Mr Hyde " are : first : " Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde " is my favorite book , and , second : because one of these days i droped by this wonderful blog :http://tudo-emais-alguma-coisa.blogspot.com/ , owned by two friends of mine and , as I was reading a text written by Vanessa , i was impressed by its truthness . Sorry , but i won't write the entire text . As the matter of fact , i will just summon up the main idea : we , as human beings , have two sides , and one of those sides , securely "guarded" when we manage to get a grip on it , sometimes manages to manifest itself in a quite unapropriate way . We have all have a dark side that sometimes , needs to be explored . A dark side that needs to be delt with . If we don't manage to understand and face our inner demons , we will forever live in a sort of limbo . A limbo that one day will probably , colapse . And when we realized that , it will be too late . It happened to Dr. Jekyll and it will happen to us - it's just a matter of when , where and HOW !
