Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the most important and influential writers of the modern era, admired and emulated by authors across the world from the 19th century to the present day. He also wrote some of the most original stories, creating iconic characters who have moved beyond the page to become parts of the language itself.
Gerard Carruthers’ Scotnote provides an overview of Stevenson’s life and work, and focuses on three novels in particular: The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, The Master of Ballantrae, and The Ebb-Tide, each in it own way a story of good and evil, and the conflicting impulses felt by the human spirit. Suitable for senior school pupils and students at all levels.
