Redemption is an act of atoning for a fault or mistake or making up for the errors that were done by a person in the past. Dr. Jekyll most definitely redeemed himself. His redemption was about him putting an end to the sinful acts of Mr. Hyde when Mr. Hyde takes over his body. Dr. Jekyll did this by writing a letter to Mr. Utterson not only confessing but also explaining to him about his experiment which has gone totally wrong. The experiment brought about his evil side (Mr. Hyde) which was not the result he was looking for. As time went on Mr. Hyde started to take full control over him till the point where he thought he was losing power and authority over himself. Mr. Hyde went on to kill, and harm others which were not what Dr. Jekyll will do or even think about. Dr. Jekyll couldn’t live with himself knowing he poses a threat to everyone so he decides to end his life knowing its the only way to put an end to Mr. Hyde’s thirst for blood and devious acts. He explains the reason why he ended his life at the end of his narrative in the letter to Mr. Utterson by saying “Here then, as I lay down the pen and proceed to seal up my confession, I bring the life of that unhappy Henry Jekyll to an end.”  The killings that were done by Mr. Hyde showed he had no remorse and feel no guilt towards them. Even though the sinful acts and murders were done by Dr. Jekyll’s evil side he still has blood on his and he is definitely guilty and should be held accountable for every treacherous deed done by Mr. Hyde. After all its was his own experiment and he should have known that it wasn’t a good experiment to approach when his good friend Dr. Lanyon went against him on it till the point where they ended their friendship.
