Overview

Robert Louis (Balfour) Stevenson (1850-1894), was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of Neo-romanticism in English literature. He was greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling and Vladimir Nabokov. Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature. It is only recently that critics have begun to look beyond Stevenson's popularity and allow him a place in the Western canon. Stevenson was a celebrity in his own time, but with the rise of modern literature after World War I, he was seen for much of the 20th century as a writer of the second class, relegated to children's literature and horror genres. His works include: An Inland Voyage (1878), Familiar Studies of Men and Books (1882), New Arabian Nights (1882), Kidnapped (1886), The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables (1887), Memories and Portraits (1887), Memoir of Fleeming Jenkin (1887), The Black Arrow (1888), and Master of Ballantrae: A Winter's Tale (1889).

This classic Stevenson compilation, contrary to the description, has numerous scanning errors which make many of the poems illegible. The drawings are fabulous and given that it's a free version, it may be worthwhile to download just for the drawings. But if you want to read the poems with your children (which I highly recommend), then you should purchase a different version.

I believe that any book that has to do with a life lesson deserves to have a good review but this one deserves a special review because it teaches young children the meaning of life and the way they can live it to the fullist and you cant say that about many books but this one you can
