The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a Gothic mezzobula by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. - AsNotedIn

Mr Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
