DOPPELGANGER:
Here's Northrop Frye et al's definition of this term in The Harper Handbook to Literature:
An alter ego; a second passional self haunting one's rational psyche;
from German, "double-goer."
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) had already seen a perpetual contention between humankind's evil heart and rational head [Note: Kant is also one of the important figures in defining the sublime.] and romances had for centuries paired good and evil identities....
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818)
James Hogg's Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner (1824)
Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886)
Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment (1866)
Conrad's "The Secret Sharer" (1912)
Conrad's Heart of Darkness
Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray
