Robert Louis Stevenson, long recognized as a master storyteller and essayist, was also one of the finest and most delightful of letter writers. Yale University Press is now publishing the definitive edition of Stevenson's collected letters in eight handsomely produced volumes. The edition will contain nearly 2,800 letters, only 1,100 of which have been published before. Volumes III and IV cover the period from August 1879 to June 1884. The six hundred letters tell for the first time the full story of Stevenson's reckless journey to California as an "amateur emigrant," during which he gained a wife but wrecked his health. They describe his return to Europe and his futile search to improve his health in Scotland, Switzerland, and France and reveal interesting aspects of the writing of Treasure Island, Virginibus Puerisque (his first volume of collected essays), and many poems later collected in Underwoods and in A Child's Garden of Verses. Volumes V and VI cover the period from July 1884 to September 1890 and comprise over nine hundred letters. During this time, Stevenson lived as a chronic invalid for three years in Bournemouth, England; searched for improved health in the United States and the South Seas; and achieved fame and success with the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Kidnapped, and A Child's Garden of Verses. The letters convey Stevenson's courage and gaiety in the face of illness and his affection for his family and friends. They also reveal the devoted care given him by his wife, Fanny Stevenson. Ernest Mehew's detailed annotation provides all the background necessary to fully enjoy Stevenson's letters.

Robert Louis Stevenson's exile in Samoa caught the imagination of his contemporaries a century ago and has fascinated his admirers ever since. The penultimate volume of this eight-book edition of his collected correspondence covers the period from September 1890, when Stevenson set up home in Samoa, to December 1892. In splendid, lively letters Stevenson describes the early pioneering days during the establishment of the Vailima plantation and the construction of the house. Stevenson lived as the patriarchal head of the family, which consisted of his wife Fanny, his mother, Fanny's two children, Lloyd and Belle, together with the Samoan house servants and estate workers. In the tropical climate his health improved, and he was able to enjoy the outdoor life he loved - riding on horseback, travelling at sea or working on his estate. Stevenson took a passionate interest in all aspects of Samoan culture, championing and defending native interests against the misdeeds and incompetence of the white officials appointed by Britain, Germany and the United States. We are given a vivid account of life in this small colonial outpost with its politics and intrigues. It was not without reason that Stevenson was given the Samoan title of Tusitala (Writer of Tales). Taking precedence over all his other activities was his punishing writing schedule. The South Seas provided the background for some of his finest work including the short story 'The Beach of Falesa' and the novel The Wrecker, written in collaboration with his stepson. He also wrote Catriona, the sequel to Kidnapped, during this period. His letters enable us to follow the composition of these and other books, and his rich flow of ideas for other stories.

«Бом не слишком приятное место и замечателен только одним: почти все его обитатели в глубине души убеждены, будто умеют говорить по-английски, что, впрочем, фактами не подтверждается,» — так начинается книга путевых заметок шотландского писателя и поэта Роберта Луиса Стивенсона (1850—1894) из его путешествия по рекам Бельгии. Тонкий английский юмор, внимание к малейшим нюансам и тонкостям культуры и традиций — от бытовых до общественных — жителей бельгийских городов, ставят роман «Путешествие внутрь страны» в переводе Нины Дарузес в один ряд с такими шедеврами приключенческой литературы писателя, как «Остров сокровищ» или «Приключения принца Флоризеля».
