Der seltsame Fall des Dr.Jekyll und Mr.Hyde

Der kurze Traum von einem Unhold

Ein Traum von Robert Louis Stevenson

Sprache: Englisch

Six o’clock struck on the bells of the church that was so conveniently near to Mr. Utterson’s dwelling, and still he was digging at the problem. Hitherto it has touched him on the intellectual side alone; but now his imagination also was engaged, or rather enslaved.

He would be aware of the great field of lamps of a nocturnal city; then of the figure of a man walking swiftly; then of a child running from the doctor’s; and then these met, and that human Juggernaut trod the child down and passed on regardless of her screams.

The figure haunted the lawyer all night; and if at any time he dozed over, it was but to see it move the more swiftly and still the more swiftly, even to dizziness, through wider labyrinths of lamplighted city, and at every street corner crush a child and leave her screaming.

And still the figure had no face; even in his dreams, it had no face, or one that baffled him and melted before his eyes; and thus it was that there sprang up and grew apace in the lawyer’s mind a singularly strong, almost an inordinate, curiosity to behold the features of Mr. Hyde.
