Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

When Hyde appears and commits unspeakable acts, it is usually on well-lighted, clean, and silent streets. The same streets that are alive with activity during the day. What does this mean? What idea(s) about the novella does it convey?

The dark acts that Hyde commits reflect the darkness at night and the darkness hidden beneath the recesses of man's heart. It's all about the darkness and the evil that is personified by it!
