From Longman's Cultural Editions series, edited by Susan Wolfson and Barry Qualls, come three tales of transformation: Mary Shelley’s Transformation, Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Sharer.
Handsomely produced and affordably priced, the Longman Cultural Editions series presents classic works in provocative and illuminating contexts-cultural, critical, and literary. Each Cultural Edition consists of the complete texts of these important literary works, reliably edited, headed inviting introductions, and supplemented by helpful annotations; a table of dates to track composition, publication, and public reception in relation to biographical, cultural and historical events; and a guide for further inquiry and study.
