ThisMoreRobert Louis Stevenson (1850-94) is widely known for his novels Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island, and Kidnapped. His reputation as a romantic writer and childrens author, however, reflects only a portion of his literary achievement. This collection of stories features an introduction by Stevenson scholar Barry Menikoff which places Stevensons writing in a new context. Menikoff argues that Stevenson is misunderstood by academic readers and critics and presents him as a writer whose subjects and methods are clearly modernist.Included in this volume for the first time are versions of the stories Markheim and The Isle of Voices as they appear in Stevenson s holograph manuscripts, plus his classics The Suicide Club, The Rajahs Diamond, The Bottle Imp, The Pavilion on the Links, A Lodging for the Night, The Merry Men, and Thrawn Janet.
