jack the ripper\'s long shadow: from sherlock holmes to \"jekyll & hyde\"
Some of his undisputed facts are quite dirty and tedious.
The identity of the murderer is still a complete mystery with so much handling getting dirty.
In the summer and fall, there have been several incidents in which prostitutes have been killed in the streets of white church and Spitalfields.
At least in the public imagination.
Only one perpetrator.
The visceral resection of the three women led people to think that he must have medical knowledge and experience in anatomy.
The final touches came from a scam letter, allegedly written by the murderer, but may have been written by a journalist to provoke the story.
He signed his name today as a shorthand for a whole bag of half rubbish.
Facts and inferences: Suppose there is a killer and vandal trained as a doctor who claims to be \"Jack the Ripper \". ’(
When I interviewed Judith Flanders, she pointed out that only four of the hundreds of Victorian murders she investigated in her research remain unresolved.
In these cases, three suspects were a closed suspect.
The case of only \"Jack Ripp\" has not yet been closed.
In the following century, more than 100 different named suspects have been proposed. )
The case was reproduced almost immediately in the novel.
Curse on Mitre Square is a mid-story inspired by the Ripper killings, first published by John Francis Brewer in October 1888.
Of course, until today, with the release of the TV series \"White Church\" and \"Ripper Street\", its influence has also been felt.
\"But historians have recently pointed out a very interesting relationship that is moving in another direction from an early age when it comes to real life.
The story of Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886)
Inspired by a nightmare.
As he said, I dream of a wonderful and terrible story --
He wrote it in three days.
The short story is about a respectable doctor with a split character.
So far, he has been a good and upright member of his profession and community.
In the evening, however, he became a terrible, dark self.
By taking a magical drug, he will \"become\" another character, baser, half of his character: Mr. Hyde, the terrible killer.
The story begins with a description of Mr. Hyde, who strolls through a street in London at night, and in a blind rage, a little girl was sent by her family to run for a doctor for a sick relative.
His evil acts are particularly terrible because they seem to be random and have no motivation.
Mr. Hyde agreed to pay her family compensation for the injury to the child, but the cheque he issued was made in the name of the highly respected Dr. Jekyll.
This is Mr. Hyde\'s first hint of evil, Metamorphosis and violence.
He later killed a man with a cane.
Have some kind of relationship with that ethical doctor.
It was initially thought that Mr Hyde was blackmailing Dr Jekyll, but the two of them would never appear in the same place at the same time.
In the end, when Hyde was suspected of murdering Jekyll, the secret of the same person came out.
With it, the source of the transformation is revealed: it exists in the potion and in the special salt that must be mixed with it.
Dr. Jekyll has been conducting chemical experiments to explore the \"complete and original persistence\" of humans and, through a batch of contaminated drugs, stumbled upon unforeseen tragic consequences.
The Victorian love/fear of poison looked up again, as William Palmer did, and the darkness lurked in the hearts of honorable doctors.
The theme of a man being able to show the world two very different faces runs through Victorian literature: Oscar Wilder sees this again in the photo of Dorian Gray1890).
Stevenson\'s book was a great success and soon became a stage play, which was staged in London\'s Lyceum theater in August 5, 1888.
It is believed that the murder of Martha tapram was the first in the Jack the Ripper series, just two days later.
Other Murders followed.
Every night, in front of thousands of people, an actor named Richard Manfield1857-1907)
Play two roles, good Dr Jekyll and evil Mr Hyde.
When he turned himself from Mr. Hyde to Dr. Jekyll on stage, the climax of the drama came.
The movie version of the story shows the transition from Jekyll to Hyde from good to bad.
But the original stage version shows the transformation of the monster in this man.
Stevenson\'s story describes this shift as: This is what Richard manesfield has to convey --
He is a very skilled actor.
His background is Gilbert and Sullivan opera, and he will continue to be a very popular Shakespeare player.
When he died, the New York Times called him \"the greatest actor of the time and one of the greatest actors of all time \".
\"Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde is a character that makes Mansfield famous.
The Daily Telegraph says his intense power silence the whole house.
The most reliable test of strength(
It also shows that the audience has not been expected to sit in the well yet.
The polite, careful silence we know today. )
The commenter continued, \"Mr manesfield has come and he has seen that he has conquered as an actor with extraordinary strength and wisdom.
How did Mandalay achieve the transition from Hyde to Jekyll? There\'s a lot of speculation about him using makeup.
Door and secret lighting effects.
\"Everyone is speculating about the secrets of the shift they see but cannot believe it.
This is what the obituary of Memphis says.
He was accused of using acid, phosphorus and all kinds of chemicals.
In fact, a witness claimed it was \"very simple \".
He used a set of rubber suits and he was happy to inflate and exhaust!
\"It is understandable that Mr. Manesfield did not want to reveal his craft secrets, but it does not seem that this shift was made only through the flesh.
However, he did get the help of the expanded music of the orchestra and some beautiful lights.
As Mr Hyde, he was lit from below, darkening and deepening his eye socket.
As Dr. Jekyll, he was lit from the top and very bland, just like the protagonist of a traditional young boy in any drama. (
Critics generally believe that Mr Hyde is distorted rather than more direct and direct --of-the-
Dr. Jekyll, hero of Mill)
But most of the results he achieved himself.
At the moment Mr. Hyde swallowed the magic poison, he would turn his back to the audience, twist his face and bite his throat.
Then, when he finished his circuit, he faced them again as a smiling doctor.
The standard of the evening is described: \"It is a trivial demon that swallows the air, and then the figure becomes straight and actually looks like the figure has improved and the handle has crossed the face up, jekyll came out.
The integrity and speed of the changes are amazing.
\"With an exaggerated, exaggerated style of performance that would allow 2000 people to see clearly what he\'s doing, they find it equally exciting and scary.
It was an amazing show and people were surprised, partly because they had never seen such a show before.
The effect on the nerves of the audience is so deep that it is almost dangerous.
A newspaper report: The media reported that the \"RIP man Jack\" used some skill to remove the internal organs from the victim, indicating that he was also trained in medical care --
Soon people began to confuse facts and fiction.
In an article written for an expert (
The historian of Jack Lipp)
Alan Sharp analyzed the connection between the media and Hyde during the frightening summer of London in 1888.
He recorded how Freeman\'s diary began in a sober, comparative note, which reflected that \"these atrocities and murder, which apparently has no reason, indicate that it is currently on the east end, there is a more terrible human monster than hyde. \".
At the same time, another gentleman wrote to The Telegraph in stronger contact, implying \"the perpetrator [
\"Rip\" killing incident]
This is a person who is inflamed by witnessing the dramatic performances of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Others go further than they have proved.
A reporter from The Star newspaper insisted: \"You and all the newspapers have missed the obvious solution to the mystery of the white church.
The murderer is Mr. Hyde, who seeks the safety and relative decency of Dr. Jekyll, from the crimes he has committed in the most basic form.
There are even people who insist that actor Richard Manfield is the murderer.
After all, every night, on the stage, he shows his ability to be both a therapist and a killer: \"I don\'t think one person can disguise himself in a moment like in public, \"Pall Mall\" is declared under the title of \"Mr. Hyde of White Church.
As Judith Flanders points out, the stories of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde have had a huge impact on people\'s understanding of who the \"RIP Jack\" is.
The killer has never been considered a historic Eastern native. do-well.
He is always considered to be an inappropriate person, swinging between the upper class during the day and the dark and dirty streets of the white church at night.
The suspects raised included writer Lewis Carroll\'s artist Walter Scott and the eldest son of Edward VII, Duke Clarence, all of which reflected such a view, that is, there may be a monster lurking in a respected person.
Reality and fiction seem to get more tangled, when one considers the relationship between \"RIP Jack\" and another character who starts walking on the streets of London at the same time-the talented detective Sherlock Holmes.
Holmes first appeared on the 1887 Christmas album, the same story, the study of Scarlet red, published as a novel in 1888, and in the same year, \"Rip\" intimidated the country.
Holmes\'s debut has not yet had the crime of \"Lipp\", but as his character develops in numerous subsequent stories, Holmes appears to be a mirror image of \"lipjack.
In the place where \"Jack\" is uncontrollable, mysterious and unmotivated, the creatures of the night, Sherlock is rational, reassuring and brilliant, in the darkest places
Where the police failed.
Whether in the real
The white church murder and many fictional cases described by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle --
Holmes is always successful.
In our odd interweaving of the images of \"Jack\" and Sherlock, few witnesses think he really saw the serial killer report that he was wearing a deer hunting cap.
For Sherlock Holmes, the minister of government, the successful businessmen and the European royal family properly turned to solving their most difficult problems.
Overall, however, Holmes is not a good customer.
They also include priests, typists, engineers, landlady, governess . . . . . . This kind of person had to go home along the street at night, and he read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle\'s story in the magazine and was encouraged by them, imagining that the \"RIP Jack\" might be caught.
Sherlock Holmes and His World have something reliable and reassuring.
But at the same time-
Exactly the same concept as many people have for \"rip\"
Holmes is an eccentric man standing outside of normal society.
Lacking a close family relationship, being affected by severe depression, relying on morphine and other drugs to get through periods of boredom and exhaustion, he is so committed to what he sees as justice, this sometimes leads him to act rashly or even in danger.
If it is occasionally disturbing, it will bring an exciting reading experience.
Sherlock Holmes is the hero of the story. He takes a hansomm taxi and takes a boat to hunt down criminals in London\'s swimming pool.
But he also frequently haunts opium dens, and when we first met Holmes, he was immersed in a study written in Scarlet red, immersed in a suitable \"maturity\"
Ish activity: hit a body with a stick.
This, of course, is part of his work as part of the latest Victorian invention: forensic scientist.
