With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Tim Middleton, Head of English Studies, University of Ripon and York. In seeking to discover his inner self, the brilliant Dr Jekyll discovers a monster. First published to critical acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man's nature, and it is the book which established Stevenson's reputation as a writer. Also included in this volume is Stevenson's 1887 collection of short stories, The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables. The Merry Men is a gripping Highland tale of shipwrecks and madness; Markheim, the sinister study of the mind of a murderer; Thrawn Janet, a spine-chilling tale of demonic possession; Olalla, a study of degeneration and incipient vampirism in the Spanish mountains; Will O' the Mill, a thought-provoking fable about a mountain inn-keeper; and The Treasure of Franchard, a study of French bourgeois life.

«Бом не слишком приятное место и замечателен только одним: почти все его обитатели в глубине души убеждены, будто умеют говорить по-английски, что, впрочем, фактами не подтверждается,» — так начинается книга путевых заметок шотландского писателя и поэта Роберта Луиса Стивенсона (1850—1894) из его путешествия по рекам Бельгии. Тонкий английский юмор, внимание к малейшим нюансам и тонкостям культуры и традиций — от бытовых до общественных — жителей бельгийских городов, ставят роман «Путешествие внутрь страны» в переводе Нины Дарузес в один ряд с такими шедеврами приключенческой литературы писателя, как «Остров сокровищ» или «Приключения принца Флоризеля».
