“Bhí ina lámh aige bata trom, agus é ag imirt leis; ach níor fhreagair sé focal, agus ba dhóigh le duine air go raibh sé ag éisteacht le mífhoighne ba dheacair a chosc. Agus ansin ar iompú na boise bhris ar an bhfoighne aige le rabharta feirge, bhuail sé a leathchos in aghaidh an talaimh, bheartaigh sé an bata, agus d’iompair sé é féin ar nós duine buile. Chuaigh an sean duine uasal coiscéim ar gcúl, agus cosúlacht air go raibh ionadh air agus é goillte beagán. Leis sin chuaigh Mr Hyde thar na bearta ar fad, agus leag sé ar talamh le buille bata é. Agus nóiméad ina dhiaidh sin, le fíochmhaire ápa, bhí sé ag satailt ar an gcorpán faoina chosa, é ag radadh stoirme buillí anuas air a bhris na cnámha le torann agus a thug ar an gcorp damhsa ar an mbóthar.”   “He had in his hand a heavy cane, with which he was trifling; but he answered never a word, and seemed to listen with an ill-contained impatience. And then all of a sudden he broke out in a great flame of anger, stamping with his foot, brandishing the cane, and carrying on (as the maid described it) like a madman. The old gentleman took a step back, with the air of one very much surprised and a trifle hurt; and at that Mr Hyde broke out of all bounds and clubbed him to the earth. And next moment, with ape-like fury, he was trampling his victim under foot and hailing down a storm of blows, under which the bones were audibly shattered and the body jumped upon the roadway.”
Hyde
Scéal scáfar uafar a chuirfidh alltacht agus anbhá ar lucht a léite. Dearmad na léirithe éadroma de atá feicthe agat i scannáin agus cruinnigh do mhisneach le dul i bhfiontar sceimhle síceolaíoch Jekyll agus Hyde. Is i Londain atá an t-úrscéal suite mar dhea, ach tá gach uile leathanach de ar maos in atmaisféar dúrúnda Dhún Éideann—an áit ar rugadh Robert Louis Stevenson.

An fabhalscéal Freudach an leabhar seo, nó fáthscéal morál tachta nó fiú allagóire ghnéasach? Is fútsa a chinneadh.


  A horrifying tale of terror that will bewilder and amaze its readers. Forget the light renditions of it that you have seen in films and gather your courage to venture into the psycho logical terror of Jekyll and Hyde. It is in London that the novel is supposedly set, but every page is drenched in the mysterious atmosphere of Edinburgh—where Robert Louis Stevenson was born.

Is it a Freudian fable, a morality parable, or a sexual allegory? Its up to you to decide.
