Utterson, the lawyer, is becoming increasingly anxious about the strange behavior of his friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and in particular, by Jekyll's association with an ugly, violent creature by the name of Edward Hyde. Utterson resolves to get to the bottom of the mystery, and along the way, uncovers a horrific story of murder and suffering, which leads inevitably to the terrible revelation of Mr. Hyde's true identity. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a masterpiece of Victorian literature, and one of the most potent and enduring of modern myths. The adventures of Prince Florizel of Bohemia and his running battle with the sinister machinations of "The Suicide Club" are also included in this volume as well as "The Body Snatchers," "Markheim," and "Olalla"-three of Stevenson's memorable and well-observed short stories, which deal with similarly gothic themes.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a novelist, poet, short-story writer, and essayist. In 1883, while bedridden with tuberculosis, he wrote what would become one of the best known and most beloved collections of children's poetry in the English language, A Child's Garden of Verses. Block City is taken from that collection. Stevenson is also the author of such classics as Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
