Dissected Narration in From Hell: A Graphic Translation of R. L. Stevenson's Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?

Abstract : This article investigates the narrative strategies implemented by artists to render visually the fantastic storyborn from the mind of Scottish author R. L. Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1886).After focusing on the problematic illustrations by Charles Raymond Macauley (1904) and Mervyn Peake(1948), the demonstration lays emphasis on the original graphic novel by Eddy Campbell and Alan Moore,From Hell (1989-1991). Carefully chosen panels are then analyzed to highlight the sophisticated combinationof a highly documented script and a challenging visual rhetoric, thus addressing issues such as chronologyand rhythm.
