The primary conflict in the novel is internal, between the two sides of Dr. Jekyll’s personality. Hyde is the dark side of his nature; the novel is an allegorical treatment of humankind’s struggle to master our baser nature. Secondary to the internal conflict raging inside of Dr. Jekyll is the external conflict between Hyde and the authorities.
