Sexual Orientation and Identity in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

  • Michael Corlett

Abstract

This article examines identity through a psychoanalytical reading of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, to examine the effects of an individual’s sexual orientation on their self-identity. The article considers factors both internal and external as I seek to provide insight into society’s often oppressive relationship with sexuality, providing contrasts between biological and psychological approaches to the subject.
