“Jekyll and Hyde” has become the ubiquitous cultural reference for extreme dichotomies in human behavior. For twenty-first century readers, it’s a cliche to discover that the monster was always within. But Stevenson's 1886 novella — a psychological drama that asks murky moral questions through a complex narrative structure — originated the genre of horror that looks inward. Join us the week before Halloween for a seminar-style discussion exploring this classic work of man and monsters. Monday, October 25th, from noon to 2 p.m. ET
