Mysteries: Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson’s wrote the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hdye (1886). I regard his tale as an excellent portrayal of the mystery of good and evil that exists in all of us. In Stevenson’s writing there really are two personalities that exist within the same person —> the good Dr. Jekyll and the evil Mr. Hyde.  They are two personalities   operating from a vastly different moral compass. The writing revolves around the internal battle we all have between the good and evil that resides within us (review posts on morality). Each one of us has an inner struggle between our 2-dogs;  i. e. bad human and good human.  I state that only after each of us can acknowledge this duality of our nature (inner conflict) can we self-evolve towards a morality of good intentions.
