Discuss The Ways That Evil Is Portrayed In Stevenson's "The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde"
The "Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" was written in 1885 during the Victorian Era. The book was based in the streets of London, which, at this period in time were a very dangerous place to be in.

This type of atmosphere can give a sense of terror to the reader to give an even greater horror in the book.
