differing approaches to tragedy and comedy, Stevenson and Wilde discuss privacy through a multifaceted exploration of curiosity, hypocrisy, and perversity. In Jekyll and Hyde, Utterson exemplifies curiosity of Edward Hyde 's actions: "If he be Mr Hyde [...] I shall be Mr. Seek." (Stevenson 16); and again when he receives Hyde 's mysterious letter, "It is one thing to mortify curiosity, andother to conquer it" (42).

Both authors leave their readers thinking twice before they go peeking at the Christmas gifts under the tree or sneak that last piece of chocolate cake from the refrigerator. Their Catholic readers may even make a visit to a nearby confession box. "A Good Man is Hard to Find" and "The Cask of Amontillado" are short "dark"
