One way that this double personality is represented in both Shelley’s novel and Stevenson’s novella is through the theme of isolation. Both of them have main characters who are disregarded by society but who also isolate themselves in order to maintain the secret that they are trying to disguise; the fact that they have immorality in their human nature as well as morality.
