Robert Louis Stevenson - Author

About the Author

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh in 1850. The son of a prosperous civil engineer, he was expected to follow the family profession, but was allowed to study law at Edinburgh University. Stevenson reacted strongly against the Presbyterian respectability of the city’s professional classes and this led to painful clashes with his parents. In his early twenties he became afflicted with a severe respiratory illness from which he was to suffer for the rest of his life; it was at this time that he determined to become a professional writer. The effects of the often harsh Scottish climate on his poor health forced him to spend long periods abroad. After a great deal of travelling he eventually settled in Samoa, where he died on 3 December 1894.

Stevenson’s Calvinistic upbringing gave him a preoccupation with pre-destination and a fascination with the presence of evil. In Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde he explores the darker side of the human psyche, and the character of the Master in The Master of Ballantrae (1889) was intended to be ‘all I know of the Devil’. Stevenson is well known for his novels of historical adventure, including Treasure Island (1883), Kidnapped (1886) and Catriona (1893). As Walter Allen comments in The English Novel, ‘His rediscovery of the art of narrative, of conscious and cunning calculation in telling a story so that the maximum effect of clarity and suspense is achieved, meant the birth of the novel of action as we know it.’ But these works also reveal his knowledge and feeling for the Scottish cultural past. During the last years of his life Stevenson’s creative range developed considerably, and The Beach of Falesá brought to fiction the kind of scene now associated with Conrad and Maugham. At the time of his death Robert Louis Stevenson was working on his unfinished masterpiece, Weir of Hermiston. He also wrote works of non-fiction, notably his descriptive and historical books on the South Seas area, A Footnote to History (1892) and In the South Seas (1896), as well as his celebrated defence of Father Damien, the Belgian priest who devoted his life to caring for lepers, in Father Damien; an open letter to the Reverend Hyde of Honolulu (1890).

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson, Alexandra Melville Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/01/2019

He put the glass to his lips, and drank at one gulp. A cry followed; he reeled, staggered, clutched at the table and held on, staring with injected eyes, gasping with open mouth; and as I looked there came, I thought, a change... A series of brutal incidents - a murder, the trampling of a child - leads lawyer Mr Utterson to try to find out more about the repulsive perpetrator Mr Hyde. More importantly, he begins to question how Hyde is connected to Utterson's old friend, the respectable Dr Jekyll. Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novel, with its concern with doubles and the `dual nature of man', takes the reader into the darker regions of late Victorian London, as Utterson begins to unravel the mystery and confront the horror of Hyde's true identity. This Collins Classroom Classics edition includes an introduction and glossary to support students, written by an experienced teacher.

Essays I Virginibus Puerisque and Other Papers

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/10/2018

These essays, written from 1874 to 1880, established 'R.L.S.' as one of the prominent young writers of his time, a provocative and philosophically inclined bohemian playfully offering advice to his post-Darwinian generation about how to find contentment in a society of rigid bourgeois demands. In this first ever scholarly edition, the 1881 text is followed by extensive explanatory notes and the story of the composition and reception of each essay. The volume opens with a full listing of all Stevenson's essays followed by a substantial introductory discussion of Stevenson's career as essayist, the characteristics and literary contexts of his essays, and the critical and popular reception of his essays from the 1870s to the present day. The volume Introduction proper then presents the publication history of Virginibus Puerisque, the reception of the book and notable characteristics of the collection taken as a whole: its style and shape, and the aesthetic and ethical vision it presents.

Treasure Island is the seminal pirates and buried treasure novel, which is so brilliantly concocted that it appeals to readers both young and old. The story is told in the first person by young Jim Hawkins, whose mother keeps the Admiral Benbow Inn. An old seadog, a resident at the inn, hires Jim to keep a watch out for other sailors whom he fears but, despite all precautions, the old man is served with the black spot which means death. Among the dead man's belongings Jim discovers a map showing the location of the buried treasure of the notorious pirate Captain Flint. It is not long before he, along with Doctor Livesey and Squire Trelawney, sets sail to find the treasure. However, amongst the hired hands is the one-legged Long John Silver who has designs on the treasure for himself. The continuing fascination with this tale of high drama, buried treasure and treachery bears out what Stevenson wrote about the book to his friend W. E. Henley: 'if this don't fetch the kids, why, they have gone rotten since my day.' The book not only continues to 'fetch the kids' but the grown-ups too - in fact all those with the spirit of adventure in their hearts.

Was die Geschichte so universell verstandlich und bis heute lesbar macht, ist das Grundmotiv: Der Mensch, der, hin- und hergerissen zwischen seinen beiden Polen, der guten und wohltatigen Seite und der dunklen, bosen und gemeinen Seite, ringt. Hier allerdings nicht sinnbildlich oder sprichwortlich, sondern manifest: Das Bose bricht sich korperlich Bahn, in Gestalt des Mr. Hyde, in den sich Jekyll verwandelt, nachdem er ein lange ausgetufteltes Geheimpulver zu sich nimmt. Wie zu erwarten, gerat die Sache auer Kontrolle: Jekyll kann irgendwann sein anderes, "e;boses"e; Ich nicht mehr beherrschen, mit schrecklichen Konsequenzen.

Treasure Island

Treasure Island

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson, GP Editors Format: eBook Release Date: 26/06/2018

Treasure Island, published in 1883, gave Stevenson his first popular success, and its easy to see why it remains a favorite of readers of all ages. The tale of young Jim Hawkins and his unlikely band of adventurers strikes at the very heart of our own desire to lose ourselves among hidden chests, cryptic maps, and treacherous companions.Set in the eighteenth century, Treasure Island spins a heady tale of piracy, a mysterious treasure map, and a host of sinister characters charged with diabolical intentions. Seen through the eyes of Jim Hawkins, the cabin boy of the Hispaniola, the action-packed adventure tells of a perilous sea journey across the Spanish Main, a mutiny led by the infamous Long John Silver, and a lethal scramble for buried treasure on an exotic isle.Rich in atmosphere and character, Treasure Island continues to mesmerize readers with its perceptive views of the changing nature of human motives.

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson Format: eBook Release Date: 22/06/2018

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Edward Hyde. The work is known for its vivid portrayal of a split personality, split in the sense that within the same person there is both an apparently good and an evil personality each being quite distinct from each other; in mainstream culture the very phrase "e;Jekyll and Hyde"e; has come to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next. This is different from multiple personality disorder where the different personalities do not necessarily differ in any moral sense. Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was an immediate success and one of Stevenson's best-selling works.

The Black Arrow tells the story of Richard (Dick) Shelton during the Wars of the Roses: how he becomes a knight, rescues his lady Joanna Sedley, and obtains justice for the murder of his father, Sir Harry Shelton. Outlaws in Tunstall Forest organised by Ellis Duckworth, whose weapon and calling card is a black arrow, cause Dick to suspect that his guardian Sir Daniel Brackley and his retainers are responsible for his father's murder. Dick's suspicions are enough to turn Sir Daniel against him, so he has no recourse but to escape from Sir Daniel and join the outlaws of the Black Arrow against him. This struggle sweeps him up into the greater conflict surrounding them all. It is both an historical adventure novel and a romance novel.

Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "e;buccaneers and buried gold"e;. It was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 through 1882 under the title Treasure Island, or the mutiny of the Hispaniola, credited to the pseudonym "e;Captain George North"e;. It was first published as a book on 14 November 1883 by Cassell & Co. Treasure Island is traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, and is noted for its atmosphere, characters, and action. It is also noted as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality-as seen in Long John Silver-unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. Its influence is enormous on popular perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "e;X"e;, schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.

How thin is the line between good and evil? Dr Jekyll has been experimenting with his identity. He has developed a drug which separates the two sides of his nature and allows him occasionally to abandon himself to his most corrupt inclinations as the monstrous Mr Hyde. But gradually he begins to find that the journey back to goodness becomes more and more difficult, and the risk that Mr Hyde will break free entirely from Dr Jekyll's control puts all of London in grave peril.

A collection of essays, beginning with ruminations on ethics. The book starts: "e;The problem of education is twofold: first to know, and then to utter.Every one who lives any semblance of an inner life thinks more nobly and profoundly than he speaks; and the best of teachers can impart only broken images of the truth which they perceive.Speech which goes from one to another between two natures, and, what is worse, between two experiences, is doubly relative.The speaker buries his meaning; it is for the hearer to dig it up again; and all speech, written or spoken, is in a dead language until it finds a willing and prepared hearer.Such, moreover, is the complexity of life, that when we condescend upon details in our advice, we may be sure we condescend on error; and the best of education is to throw out some magnanimous hints.No man was ever so poor that he could express all he has in him by words, looks, or actions; his true knowledge is eternally incommunicable, for it is a knowledge of himself..."e;

La plage de Falesa

Une arrivee qui est loin d'etre de tout repos pour un anglais marchant sur les plates-bandes des Francais...Le narrateur, un Anglais, debarque sur une ile des Samoa pour tenir un comptoir commercial. A force de perseverance devant les obstacles que lui dressent les Blancs deja installes et les insulaires ; malgre la tromperie, il epouse la jeune ilienne Uma.Ce sont les peripeties entre colonisateurs et colonises que denonce Robert Louis Stevenson dans cette histoire. C'etait la coutume de ces parages et (comme je l'ai dit moi-meme) nullement la faute de nous autres Blancs, mais celle des missionnaires. S'ils avaient laisse les indigenes tranquilles, je n'aurais pas eu besoin de cette supercherie Un thriller historique captivant et revendicatif au sujet de la colonisationEXTRAITQuand je vis cette ile pour la premiere fois, le matin allait remplacer la nuit. A l'ouest, la lune se couchait large et brillante encore. A l'est, en plein milieu de l'aurore toute rose l'etoile du jour etincelait comme un diamant. La brise de terre qui nous soufflait au visage avait un fort parfum de citron et de vanille - d'autres fruits encore, mais ceux-la les plus nets - et sa fraicheur me fit eternuer. Je dois dire que j'avais passe, des annees sur une ile basse proche de la Ligne, vivant la plupart du temps solitaire parmi les indigenes. C'etait donc ici une aventure nouvelle : le langage meme me serait inconnu ; et l'aspect de ces bois et de ces montagnes, leur merveilleuse senteur, me renovaient le sang.A PROPOS DE L'AUTEURRobert Louis Stevenson, ne le 13 novembre 1850 a Edimbourg et decede le 3 decembre 1894 a Vailima (Samoa), est un ecrivain ecossais et un grand voyageur, celebre pour son roman L'Ile au tresor ainsi que pour sa nouvelle L'Etrange Cas du Dr Jekyll et de Mr Hyde. A rebours de ses contemporains naturalistes, la poetique de Stevenson est resolument anti-realiste. Elle privilegie les lois et les exigences de la fiction contre celles du reel, sans pour autant s'enfermer dans une quelconque tour d'ivoire.

Un roman d'aventures debordant de nostalgie...Un jeune homme debarque sur l'ile d'Aros pour rendre visite a son oncle et a sa cousine. Il reve de trouver l'epave de l'Espiritu Santo, un navire qui a fait naufrage sur les recifs et dont la cargaison mettrait sa famille a l'abri de tous les soucis. Il ne recherche aucune richesse personnelle, seulement le bonheur des siens. Face a lui, un oncle moins candide qui a recemment fait main basse sur une epave et un butin. Et puis il y a la mer qui impose sa presence, ses coleres, les vents...Un recit de Robert Louis Stevenson, le pelerin de la mer !EXTRAITCe fut par une belle matinee de la fin de juillet que je me mis en route vers Aros pour la derniere fois. Une barque m'avait depose la veille a Grisapol ; je dejeunai tant bien que mal a la petite auberge, y laissai tout mon bagage, en attendant une occasion de revenir le chercher par mer, et commencai d'un cA ur leger la traversee du promontoire.J'etais loin d'etre natif de ces parages, car mon ascendance provenait exclusivement des basses terres. Mais un mien oncle, Gordon Darnaway, dont la jeunesse fut dure et pauvre, avait navigue quelques annees, avant d'epouser une jeune femme des iles. Celle-ci s'appelait Mary Maclean ; elle etait l'unique heritiere de sa famille ; et lorsqu'elle mourut en donnant le jour a une fille, la ferme entouree par la mer, Aros, demeura en la possession de son mari. Ce domaine lui rapportait juste de quoi vivre, comme je le savais tres bien ; mais mon oncle etait un homme que le mauvais sort avait toujours poursuivi ; encombre qu'il etait de ce jeune enfant, il n'osait tenter de recommencer sa vie ; et il restait en Aros, a se ronger les ongles, face a face avec son destin. Les annees s'accumulerent sur sa tete dans cet isolement, sans lui apporter ni aide ni reconfort.CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE Stevenson, trois syllabes qui tanguent sur l'horizon. Dans leur sillage, une cargaison de romans satures d'embruns ou l'on decouvre un chasseur d'absolu, un voleur de feu aupres duquel tant d'ecrivains - de James a Borges et a Le Clezio - sont venus faire provision de lumiere.

Kidnapped & Catriona

Kidnapped & Catriona

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/01/2018

Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Kidnapped is set around real 18th-century Scottish events, which occurred in the aftermath of the Jacobite rising of 1745, a time of turmoil and political upheaval. It tells the tale of David Balfour, a recently orphaned seventeen-year-old, who is left to seek his own fortune. A letter from his deceased father advises him to head to the house of Shaws in Edinburgh. He travels to Scotland as though it was a foreign country, meeting various adventures and misadventures on the way. Many of the characters in the novel are real people, including Alan Breck Stewart, the unscrupulous but heroic champion of the Jacobite cause. It is with bold skill that the author blends the real with the imaginary. The true events and the period details give colour and richness to the narrative. By using historical events as pegs on which to hang his story Stevenson succeeds in creating an enthralling action adventure. As a reader, he leaves one almost breathless with excitement and admiration. Stevenson was particularly pleased with this novel, saying that he would `never do a better book.' The exciting sweep and drama of the tale not only engaged the interest of the young, but also more mature readers.

Treasure Island

Treasure Island

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/01/2018

Treasure Island is the seminal pirates and buried treasure novel, which is so brilliantly concocted that it appeals to readers both young and old. The story is told in the first person by young Jim Hawkins, whose mother keeps the Admiral Benbow Inn. An old seadog, a resident at the inn, hires Jim to keep a watch out for other sailors whom he fears but, despite all precautions, the old man is served with the black spot which means death. Among the dead man's belongings Jim discovers a map showing the location of the buried treasure of the notorious pirate Captain Flint. It is not long before he, along with Doctor Livesey and Squire Trelawney, sets sail to find the treasure. However, amongst the hired hands is the one-legged Long John Silver who has designs on the treasure for himself. The continuing fascination with this tale of high drama, buried treasure and treachery bears out what Stevenson wrote about the book to his friend W. E. Henley: 'if this don't fetch the kids, why, they have gone rotten since my day.' The book not only continues to 'fetch the kids' but the grown-ups too - in fact all those with the spirit of adventure in their hearts.
