About the Title:
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a story about the relationship between two men who, judging by their appearances, should have nothing in common, yet the dichotomy between good and evil ties them together. Their relationship is a mystery for the other characters, hence the term case, a shortened form of the term case study that refers to a record of research that explores the development of a person.
