Abstract: Stevenson’s invitation to question the social ambivalence through his rhetoric in this novella, promptly establishes the essence of sexuality beyond body. ‘Hyde’, as the name itself suggests, hides within the disruptive parameters of a society, the definition of which is constructed by the grand narratives of the nineteenth century. This get reflected in Dr.Jekyll’s stages of abjection towards the end which dexterously illustrates Stevenson’s sense of the body becoming different from itself, flowing out towards a discourse delinked from the heteronormative mesh. Yet, the ambiguous transformation of this birth falls to the impossibility of verbalizing reality as language itself is self-subverting. Thus, the final scene often gets interpreted as a suicide. The queer element is given a blatant cultural spotlight, only to be exhumed by it later.
