    " It is, no doubt, an extremely short story/novella, but nonetheless an excellent one. Stevenson is an excellent example of late Victorian revival of Gothic literature, and the story asks a lot of questions of the reader. Chief among them, perhaps, is the question of what we ourselves are holding under the control of our moral restraint. There are many critical readings of this you can do, from asking about the homosexual undertones (and there are many) to the moral implications to the drug metaphors explored by the story. I read this as part of my English class here at college and I think I benefited from discussion of it--it's such an excellent story! I recommend you read this even if you think you have an idea what the story is about. It'll more than surprise you. "

    " Excellent! Tons of symbolism and fascinating comments to make about human nature and society, all eerily relevant to today. Read it! "
