9780862415334: Scottish Novels (Canongate)

Tour great novels take us deep into Robert Louis Stevenson's imaginative and bittersweet relationship with his native country. Kidnapped, and its sequel Catriona, are renowned the world over as supreme stories of adventure and romance. On another level they also explore the subtle divisions of Scottish history and character in the 18th century, and (some would say) the present day. The Master of Ballantrae takes a darker and more disturbing turn, with its tale of rival brothers caught in a web of hatred, obsession, love, and betrayal which draws them to their end in the frozen wastes of North America. Stevenson's fascination with the divided nature of the human self (most obviously demonstrated in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde) appears again in the Weir of Hermiston with its terrible confrontation between a father and his son. With an unsurpassed combination of physical adventure and psychological insight, The Scottish Novels have moved and thrilled readers and writers from Stevenson's contemporaries to the present day. Introduced by Jenni Calder and Roderick Watson.

About the Author:

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was born and educated in Edinburgh. He was a sickly child, and most of his adult years were to be spent traveling in search of a climate which would do least damage to his lungs. He began his writing career with essays, short stories, and travel writing, most notably Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes (1879). He went to California to marry in 1880. The journey nearly killed him, but he wrote of his experiences in Across the Plains (1892), The Amateur Emigrant (1895), and The Silverado Squatters (1883). He is, perhaps, best remembered for his first novel Treasure Island (1883), and his early reputation was made with this and other examples of adventure fiction, not least Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde which appeared as a paperback thriller in 1886.
