Herein, who is the main character in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?
Dr. Henry Jekyll and his alternative personality, Mr. Edward Hyde, is the central character of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. In the story, he is a good friend of main protagonist Gabriel John Utterson.
Also, how is Dr Jekyll described? Dr Jekyll is a well-respected and intelligent scientist. He is a wealthy man and lives in a house with his butler, Poole. To the rear of his house, with a separate entrance onto a side street, he has his own laboratory. Dr Jekyll is determined as he wants his experiment to succeed.
Likewise, people ask, who is Mr Enfield?
Richard Enfield: A distant kinsman of Mr. Utterson, he is a well-known man about town and is the complete opposite of Mr. Utterson; yet they seem to thoroughly enjoy their weekly Sunday walks together.
Why is Hyde a key character?
Hyde, as his name indicates, represents the fleshy (sexual) aspect of man which the Victorians felt the need to "hide" — as Utterson once punned on his name: "Well, if he is Mr. Hyde, I will be Mr. Seek." Hyde actually comes to represent the embodiment of pure evil merely for the sake of evil.
