Mr. Hyde thought nothing of running a little girl over or bashing an old man's head in, that of Danvers Carew, with a cane. Victorian England kept anger, sexual urges, and any example of our baser desires repressed. Hyde revelled in these desires which would be scorned by the reader while, at the same time, found to be most titillating.
