Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish writer of novels, poems, essays, and travel books. For most of his life, Stevenson suffered from serious bronchial trouble, but kept on travelling and writing. Though his writing has often been considered entertainment, author Henry James aligned Stevenson’s works to his own. His most famous novels are ”Treasure Island” (1883), ”Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” (1886), ”Kidnapped” (1886) and ”A Child’s Garden of Verses” (1885).
