New Website Celebrates Robert Louis Stevenson


robert-louis-stevensonRobert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh but according to experts, the sad reality is that his work has never been fully appreciated in his homeland and a lot of his work hasn’t ever even been seen in Scotland. A new website launched in Edinburgh today hopes to rectify that.

The site features a large collection of Stevenson’s written work including letters and works previously unseen as well as photographs and other personal paraphernalia drawn from collections around the world.

Stevenson is best known for the novels Treasure Island, Kidnapped and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde but the experts behind the site hope to introduce the world to the author’s larger body of work which encompasses poetry, travel writing, children’s stories, literary essays, and even historical novels.

I know I could learn a lot more about Robert Louis Stevenson. If I was well-versed  I would have thought to include him in my Movember Literary Moustaches list!
