Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish writer of novels, poems, essays, and travel books. For most of his life, Stevenson suffered from serious bronchial issues, but he kept on travelling and writing. Although his writing has often been considered pure entertainment, author Henry James aligned Stevenson’s works with his own. His most famous novels are "Treasure Island" (1883), "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" (1886), "Kidnapped" (1886) and "A Child’s Garden of Verses" (1885).
