Product Overview

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'' culture 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," offering a new way of understanding the relationship between his Scottish and South Seas work. Reid''s close attention to Stevenson''s engagement with anthropological and psychological debate also illuminates the intersections between literature and science at the fin de siecle, and includes previously unpublished material from the Stevenson archive at Yale.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 siecle.
