From the “English is weird” files …


The combination “ough” can be pronounced nine different ways (in English alone). I.e.,

A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough, and, after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed.

Anonymous said: according to the wikipedia article, Jekyll made the potion to suppress his dark side, not experience it.


I’ve never read that article. 

I have read the book, though, which is very clear that he made it knowing it would give him a second form which would have all his evil impulses, unchecked by any moral impulses. They would be “suppressed” in that they would have a separate existence from his life as a noble moral paragon of society.

The thing that he never caught on to is that his desire to appear moral while experiencing immorality was itself an evil impulse. And while he struggled to deal with his immoral urges in his day-to-day life before the potion, they were mitigated by his higher instincts. At one point in his confessional, he identifies himself as having been something like 9/10ths good, in his own estimation.

But he takes that tenth of himself that’s not good and gives to it its own shape and form and turns it loose into the world, and it—he—becomes a depraved murderer. Because there’s nothing holding him back. He’s another person, supposedly, (although the book makes it clear that Jekyll is aware of the actions of both personae; he relishes Hyde’s actions) and one unrestrained by any sense of morality.

And this is why I say that Jekyll is the villain of the piece. Because he went from being someone who maybe drinks and swears and plays cards and sleeps around and otherwise behaves ~*below his station*~ to someone who abuses and assaults and murders,.all so that he has a way of blowing off steam without ever being seen to act in a way ~*unbecoming a man of his stature*~, and the only thing that scares him into stopping is when he realizes he might have to face the consequences of his actions after all.
