Description : Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist and travel writer, whose reputation came primarily from his novels and essays, including "Treasure Island" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." He is ranked among the 30 most translated authors in the world, ahead of Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe. Although his notoriety derives largely from his novels and essays, Stevenson produced a large collection of poetry that has been compared to that of William Ernest Henley and Rudyard Kipling. The principle object of most of his poetry is to capture a moment, be it a memory, an emotion, or some fleeting experience, and to draw his readers wholly into that moment. This is a complete collection of Stevenson's poetry, most of which deals with themes of childhood, friendship, travel, nostalgia and the sea, and includes his well-known "Underwoods" series.

Description : The Best Short Works of One of English Literature’s Most Masterful Storytellers Collected in a Single Volume Known mostly for his seminal full-length works, such as the famous classics Treasure Island and Kidnapped, Robert Louis Stevenson’s masterful short fiction is often overshadowed. Now these pioneering works in the English short story tradition are presented here, collected in a single volume. Including the beloved novella "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," which G. K. Chesterton called “a double triumph,” and “The Merry Men,” as well as stories like “The Suicide Club” and “The Rajah’s Diamond” from the acclaimed 1882 collection New Arabian Nights, The Greatest Stories of Robert Louis Stevenson immerses you in Stevenson’s extraordinary worlds—thrilling tales of pure adventure and suspense, glorious evocations of the beauty of the Scottish countryside, and characters painted with the same vigor and energy as his most well-known creations. Showcasing his brilliant and lucid prose, his dramatic skill, and his perfect sense of pace that made him a celebrity during his time and a landmark author in the history of English literature, Stevenson’s enduring stories continue to capture the imagination of the contemporary reader and rightly belong to popular mythology today.

Description : This volume contains all of Robert Louis Stevenson’s supernatural short stories, showcasing both his mastery of the genre and his interest in the otherworldly and the strange ways the human brain can distort reality. They include "The Body Snatchers," the chilling tale of an avenging ghost; "Olalla," one of the great horror stories in the English language and possibly one of the best werewolf stories ever written, and "The Waif Woman," in which Stevenson tried to recreate the style of an Icelandic Saga and explore the destructive effects of greed.

Description : Robert Louis Stevenson has always been a writer’s writer. Contemporaries like Arthur Conan Doyle and Henry James were awed by his kaleidoscopic invention and the flawless “English” of his prose, while later authors like Somerset Maugham and Robertson Davies, drawn to the physical and psychological exotica of his subject, introduced him into their own writing—a quasi-postmodernist way of elevating their own status by alluding to his achievement and doffing their hats at the same time. Yet Stevenson was also, and perhaps foremost, a reader’s writer, a phrase that has less currency but far greater reach. Jorge Luis Borges offered it as his belief that Stevenson brought happiness to more people than any other author, although the observation was admittedly made before the age of the megamarket paperback. The great Argentinean, who late in life could refer to details from Stevenson’s earliest short stories with astonishing accuracy, clearly derived immense pleasure in conjuring up ficciones that he read as a young man. His example illuminates an experience shared by all sorts and conditions of Stevenson readers: they remember him, or come to him, from the profusion of his compositions, and even from forms, like cinema, that his work was subsequently incorporated into. One reader might have a dim memory of a line or two that was read to her when she was a small child (“I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me”). Another recalls the dark and searching N.C. Wyeth illustration of Blind Pew, his tapping stick motionless as he hovers, crook-backed, before the “Admiral Benbow.” For countless numbers Stevenson emerged from chiaroscuro images of Spencer Tracy or Frederick March as the eponymous Jekyll/Hyde, or more recently from John Malkovich and Julia Roberts in Mary Reilly, Valerie Martin’s revision of filmdom’s favorite doppelganger movie. These bit examples barely convey Stevenson’s ubiquity in general culture. The name has more popular recognition than most other authors (Shakespeare, Austen, Twain always excepted) yet people are continually surprised when they discover how widely the writer is quoted, indeed how proverbial he has become (“Home is the sailor, home from sea,/ And the hunter home from the hill”; “Marriage…is a field of battle, and not a bed of roses”; “Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary”; “Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest / Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”). Stevenson was the first modernist writer to systematically experiment with grafting serious matter onto popular forms. He virtually invented the twentieth century short story; he breathed new life into a tired and tedious Victorian essay without stripping it of its importance; he brought psychological realism into historical fiction, and adapted the mode as well in his studies of contemporary life in the South Seas. As for language, he did for English what Goethe did for German, and elevated his own Scots tongue to a level of art that had not been matched since Walter Scott. Stevenson’s work—short and long fiction, travel writing, poetry, essays, and letters (he was one of the great letter writers of the nineteenth century) will ensorcell readers with a writer who, like Ernest Hemingway, is that rare figure whose prose at its best is dateless, and one whose intellectual theories of art and culture are perhaps more compelling today because we are better prepared to understand them. This edition of the Works contains all of Stevenson's known works, including the novels, short stories, essays, plays and a substantial collection of letters, plus both the version of 'The Beach of Falesá' originally published and the unexpurgated version only discovered in the 1980s. This includes some material written in collaboration. The contents of the volumes are: Volume 1 (237 pp.): Critical introduction to the Works by Dr. Barry Menikoff; New Arabian Nights Volume 2 (171 pp.): Treasure Island Volume 3 (158 pp.): The Dynamiter Volume 4 (144 pp.): Prince Otto Volume 5 (157 pp.): Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; Fables; other stories and fragments Volume 6 (175 pp.): Kidnapped Volume 7 (218 pp.): Catriona Volume 8 (165 pp.): The Merry Men and other stories Volume 9 (195 pp.): The Black Arrow Volume 10 (288 pp.): The Wrecker Volume 11 (154 pp.): The Wrong Box; The Body-Snatchers Volume 12 (180 pp.): The Master of Ballantrae Volume 13 (205 pp.): Island Nights' Entertainments; The Beach of Falesá (unexpurgated); The Misadventures of John Nicholson Volume 14 (155 pp.): The Ebb-Tide; The Story of a Lie Volume 15 (286 pp.): St. Ives Volume 16 (189 pp.): Weir of Hermiston; some unfinished stories Volume 17 (179 pp.): An Inland Voyage; Travels with a Donkey Volume 18 (187 pp.): The Amateur Emigrant; The Old and New Pacific Capitals; The Silverado Squatters; The Silverado Diary (excerpts) Volume 19 (224 pp.): Memoir of Fleeming Jenkin; Records of a Family of Engineers Volume 20 (222 pp.): In the South Seas Volume 21 (249 pp.): Vailima Papers including Letters from the South Seas and A Footnote to History; An Object of Pity Volume 22 (244 pp.): Poems, volume I.

Dr. Barry Menikoff (University of Hawaii) has contributed an introduction to the Works as a whole, printed in volume 1.

Description : Narrating Scotland traces the Scottish writer's weaving together of source material from memoirs, letters, histories, and records of trials. Barry Menikoff uncovers the documentary basis for reading Kidnapped and David Balfour as political allegories and reveals the skill with which Stevenson offered a narrative that British colonizers could enjoy without being offended by its underlying condemnation.

Description : Millions of readers throughout the world continue to enjoy Treasure Island, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Child's Garden of Verses, and other books by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894). A celebrated author in many different fields of literature, Stevenson is also recognized as a highly engaging and prolific correspondent: he penned over 2,800 letters, which are contained in eight critically acclaimed volumes published by Yale University Press. In this book, 317 of Stevenson's most interesting and revealing letters represent each stage of his mature life. With a linking narrative and full annotation, Ernest Mehew sets the letters in the context of Stevenson's remarkable life. Beginning with the days of his troubled youth in Edinburgh, Stevenson's letters go on to tell of his love for Frances Sitwell, a beautiful, older married woman; a reckless journey to California in pursuit of Fanny Osbourne, the woman who became his wife; their worldwide but vain search for a healthy place to live; and a period of adventure in the South Seas, where Stevenson wrote some of his best work and became passionately involved in Samoan life. The letters show the author's zest for living despite daunting illnesses, his struggles with his own writing, his literary tastes, and his affection for his friends. Stevenson writes in many moods, ranging from playful and witty to deeply serious. Better than any biography ever could, these letters in Stevenson's own words tell the real story of his life.

Description : The most authoritative, comprehensive, perceptive biography of R. L. Stevenson to date, using for the first time his collected correspondence - which has been unavailable to all previous writers. The short life of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-94) was as adventurous as almost anything in his fiction: his travels, illness, struggles to become a writer, relationships with his volatile wife and step-family, friendships and quarrels have fascinated readers for over a century. In his time he was both engineer and aesthete, dutiful son and reckless lover, Scotsman and South Sea Islander, Covenanter and atheist. Stevenson's books, including 'Treasure Island', 'The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde' and 'Kidnapped', have achieved world fame; others - 'The Master of Ballantrae', 'A Child's Garden of Verses', 'Travels with a Donkey' - remain all-time favourites. His unique gift for storytelling and dramatic characterisation has meant that some of his characters live in the consciousness even of those who have never read his work: Long John Silver, with his wooden leg and his parrot, is more real to most people than any historical pirate, while 'Jekyll and Hyde' has become a universally recognised term for a split personality. No biography has yet done justice to the complex, brilliant and troubled man who was responsible for so many remarkable creations. His interest in psychology, genetics, technology and feminism anticipated the concerns of the next century, while his experiments in narrative technique inspired post-modern innovators such as Borges and Nabokov. Stevenson's recently collected correspondence shows him to have been the least 'Victorian' of Victorian writers, a man of humour, resilience and strongly unconventional views. With access to this and much previously unpublished material, Claire Harman, the acclaimed biographer of Sylvia Townsend Warner and Fanny Burney, has written the most authoritative, comprehensive and perceptive portrait of 'RLS' to date.

Description : For all of Robert Louis Stevenson’s achievements in fiction, many of his contemporaries thought of him primarily as an essayist. His essays, known for their intellectual substance, emotional force, and stylistic vitality, were widely considered the best of their time. Despite the importance of Stevenson’s nonfiction, his personal essays—70 in total—have never been printed together in a single volume until now. Stevenson’s essays explore a range of topics from illness and evolution to marriage and dreams, and from literal and literary travel to the behavior of children and the character of dogs. Grappling with many of the cultural, ethical, and existential questions of his age, he resists dogma to draw fresh conclusions. Stevenson examines beggars and university students, immigrants and engineers, invalids and nurses, outlining his own colorful life story and unique approach to "the art of living" along the way. Whereas the most common and widely available versions of these texts were modified after Stevenson’s death, this volume gathers his personal essays, many of which have never appeared in any modern edition, in their authorized versions. These essays are still considered classic models of the form, and in this volume, the Editor presents them alongside an introduction and notes to assist in a rereading and reappreciation that is long overdue.
