Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish author who was best known for his works Treasure Island and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Although during his lifetime, he was praised and made a celebrity, he was relegated to a “second class writer” by authors such as Virginia Woolf following World War I. Later, praise for the Scottish novelist would return when Oxford Inkling Roger Lancelyn Green referred to Stevenson as “a writer of a consistently high level of literary skill or sheer imaginative power.”

Robert Louis Stevenson’s first novel was titled The Hair Trunk or The Ideal Commonwealth, which went unfinished unpublished. His next novel would be one of his most famous, Treasure Island in 1883.
