In Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, why did Dr. Jekyll go to such great lengths to protect Mr. Hyde? And go beyond the more obvious response that Hyde is actually a part of Jekyll, so he must protect him in order to protect himself. Jekyll seems to be protective of and obsessed with Hyde even beyond all of that. Is Stevenson making any sort of commentary on society by depicting Dr. Jekyll as being so obsessed with Mr. Hyde?
