About the Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis (Balfour) Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of 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.

Showcasing some of Robert Louis Stevenson’s interesting, lesser-known writing, this collection is made up of two stories that present different views of the author. In �The Beach of Falesá,” Stevenson illustrates a seemingly idyllic South Seas island civilization that has been disrupted by traders and missionaries, marking a significant shift in his writing from romanticism to realism with his authentic portrayal of the relationships between the natives and settlers. The second story, �The Misadventures of John Nicholson” is more autobiographical, chronicling the life of a well-intentioned Scottish man who falls into mishap after mishap, disappointing his ethical father. From the firm structure of island society to the tragic comedies of family relations, the themes Stevenson explores in these two stories both fall in line with those in his famous body of work and expand upon them.

 

Mostrando algunas de las interesantes obras menos conocidas de Robert Louis Stevenson, esta colección contiene dos cuentos que presentan miradas diferentes del autor. En �La playa de Falesá,” Stevenson ilustra una isla de los Mares del Sur aparentemente idílica que ha sido interrumpida por comerciantes y misionarios, marcando un cambio significativo en su escritura del romanticismo al realismo con su representación auténtica de las relaciones entre los nativos y los colonos. El segundo cuento, �Las desventuras de John Nicholson,” es más autobiográfico y narra la vida de un hombre escosés con buenas intenciones que cae en una desgracia tras otra, decepcionando a su padre ético. Desde la estructura fuerte de la sociedad de la isla hasta las comedias trágicas de las relaciones entre familia, los temas que Stevenson explora en estos cuentos se alinean con aquellos en el famoso conjunto de su obra y los amplían.
