Character Role Analysis

Dr. Jekyll

Who gets top billing in the title of the book? That’s right, Dr. Jekyll. We don’t even "physically" meet him until the third chapter, but this is a book about Dr. Jekyll and his very human fallibility. He’s the guy that makes stuff happen, and he’s the only guy that can shine a light onto this dark mystery. That’s why we’re prepared to argue that he’s the protagonist.
