Robert Louis Stevenson

An Essay Collection, Volume 1

Robert Louis Stevenson. In the Scottish canon to be placed alongside Burns for your poems is high praise indeed but it’s a rightful place for one of Scotland’s finest novelists. Born in 1850 he managed to cram much into his 44 years travelling widely to France, the United States, Samoa and the South Seas. Of course he is widely feted for his classics Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, Treasure Island and poetry volumes such as A Child’s Garden Of Verses and short storeis such The Body Snatchers. All offer compelling examples of narration superbly reduced to their essence. This volume 'An Essay Collection, Volume 1' is another distinctive facet to his works. And yes, superbly written.

    All my old opinions were only stages on the way to the one I now hold, as itself is only a stage on the way to something else.
