In this fascinating book, Reid examines Robert Louis Stevenson's writings in the context of late-Victorian evolutionist thought, arguing that an interest in 'primitive' life is at the heart of his work. She investigates a wide range of Stevenson's writing, including Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Treasure Island as well as previously unpublished material from the Stevenson archive at Yale. Reid's interpretation offers a new way of understanding the relationship between his Scottish and South Seas work. Her analysis of Stevenson's engagement with anthropological and psychological debate also illuminates the dynamic intersections between literature and science at the fin de siècle.

Robert Louis Stevenson devoted his life to his wife Fanny: he crossed continents in search of her; scandalized his family by marrying her; built a life in the Pacific with her; survived tuberculosis because of her; and was encouraged and inspired in his writing by her. An American woman eleven years his senior, she remains in her own right one of the most independent and free-spirited women of her generation.

One hundred years after his death Robert Louis Stevenson is still revered as a master stylist and magnificent storyteller, the author of classics such as Treasure Island, Kidnapped, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Child's Garden of Verses and other poems, elegant and macabre short stories, and such wonderful evocations of place and people as Travels with a Donkey and Our Samoan Adventure. In recent years there has been a wave of enthusiasm for the author of these works, with the publication of major biographies and collections of his letters. Magic islands and journeys - real and imagined - are the focus of this fascinating volume, in which Stevenson is seen through the eyes of fifty witnesses from all over the world. The collection brings together the most memorable interviews and recollections from a wealth of material, portraying the life and times of one of the nineteenth century's most successful writers. R. C. Terry has created a portrait of Stevenson through the eyes of key figures in his life, including his beloved Fanny Osbourne and his confidante, Frances Sitwell. From Andrew Lang to Henry Adams, from his mother, Margaret Stevenson, to his stepson, Lloyd Osbourne, these evocative selections expand our view of the short life of a monumental writer.

»Die Luft, die ich atme, verdanke ich dir!« – was Robert Louis Stevenson in einem Brief an seine Frau Fanny so poetisch formuliert, ist weit mehr als eine Liebeserklärung. Die Geschichte ihrer ungewöhnlichen Verbindung erzählt davon. Künstlerin, geschieden, Mutter von drei Kindern und zehn Jahre älter als ihr zweiter Mann – Fanny Vandegrift Osbourne Stevenson wäre an heutigen Standards gemessen wohl eine emanzipierte Frau, jedoch keine Ausnahmeerscheinung; Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts aber bricht die Amerikanerin mit ihrem eigenwilligen Lebensstil sämtliche gesellschaftlichen Konventionen. So auch, als sie 1880 den noch unbekannten schottischen Autor Robert Louis Stevenson heiratet. Für Louis ist Fanny mehr als nur Ehefrau und Geliebte, sie ist seine engste Vertraute, seine schärfste Kritikerin und seine wichtigste Beraterin in allen Belangen, vor allem im Hinblick auf sein schriftstellerisches Werk. »Die Schatzinsel« oder »Der seltsame Fall des Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde« wären ohne Fannys Wirken und Fürsorge nicht denkbar – mehr als einmal rettet sie ihrem todkranken Mann das Leben. Louis leidet an Tuberkulose, einer heimtückischen Krankheit, die die Familie um die halbe Welt treibt. Die unermüdliche Suche nach den idealen Lebensbedingungen und Louis’ Rastlosigkeit führen den Stevenson-Clan schließlich ins Südsee-Exil, wo das beschwerliche Vagabundendasein ein lang ersehntes Ende findet. Doch dann erkrankt auch Fanny schwer, und ein Krieg unter verfeindeten Inselstämmen droht die Existenz der Stevensons zu vernichten ... Der biografische Roman »Straße der Dankbarkeit« erzählt die Geschichte einer außergewöhnlichen Liebe – und eines Lebens, das ereignisreicher nicht sein könnte, abenteuerlicher als so manche Erzählung aus der Feder eines Schriftstellers.

Stevenson's unfinished masterpiece, Weir of Hermiston, has been entirely re-edited from his final manuscript, revealing a rather different novel from the bowdlerised version produced posthumously by his friends. Stevenson revisits the conflicted Scotland of James Hogg and Sir Walter Scott as well as that of his own youth, but also responds to recently published novels. A substantial essay explores the complex early publication history of the novel on both sides of the Atlantic, and exceptionally full explanatory notes and other background information are provided.
