Publisher's Summary

Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 - 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist and travel writer. His best-known books include Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks among the 30 most translated authors in the world, just below Charles Dickens. He has been greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Marcel Schwob, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he, "seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins."

A classic for the ages.

Would you listen to Selected Poems by Robert Louis Stevenson With Biography again? Why?

Yes but only after I have absorbed the material.The wisdom of this writer is timeless and the simplicity of his work does not diminish the impact of the lessons that can be learned in our so called more advanced society.
