Sull'Autore

Novelist, poet, and essayist Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. A sickly child, Stevenson was an invalid for part of his childhood and remained in ill health throughout his life. He began studying engineering at Edinburgh University but soon switched to law. His true mostra altro inclination, however, was for writing. For several years after completing his studies, Stevenson traveled on the Continent, gathering ideas for his writing. His Inland Voyage (1878) and Travels with a Donkey (1878) describe some of his experiences there. A variety of essays and short stories followed, most of which were published in magazines. It was with the publication of Treasure Island in 1883, however, that Stevenson achieved wide recognition and fame. This was followed by his most successful adventure story, Kidnapped, which appeared in 1886. With stories such as Treasure Island and Kidnapped, Stevenson revived Daniel Defoe's novel of romantic adventure, adding to it psychological analysis. While these stories and others, such as David Balfour and The Master of Ballantrae (1889), are stories of adventure, they are at the same time fine studies of character. The Master of Ballantrae, in particular, is a study of evil character, and this study is taken even further in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886). In 1887 Stevenson and his wife, Fanny, went to the United States, first to the health spas of Saranac Lake, New York, and then on to the West Coast. From there they set out for the South Seas in 1889. Except for one trip to Sidney, Australia, Stevenson spent the remainder of his life on the island of Samoa with his devoted wife and stepson. While there he wrote The Wrecker (1892), Island Nights Entertainments (1893), and Catriona (1893), a sequel to Kidnapped. He also worked on St. Ives and The Weir of Hermiston, which many consider to be his masterpiece. He died suddenly of apoplexy, leaving both of these works unfinished. Both were published posthumously; St. Ives was completed by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, and The Weir of Hermiston was published unfinished. Stevenson was buried on Samoa, an island he had come to love very much. Although Stevenson's novels are perhaps more accomplished, his short stories are also vivid and memorable. All show his power of invention, his command of the macabre and the eerie, and the psychological depth of his characterization. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Breve biografia
Robert Louis Stevenson (13 November 1850 – 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet and travel writer, most noted for Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and A Child's Garden of Verses.

Born and educated in Edinburgh, Stevenson suffered from serious bronchial trouble for much of his life, but continued to write prolifically and travel widely in defiance of his poor health. As a young man, he mixed in London literary circles, receiving encouragement from Andrew Lang, Edmund Gosse, Leslie Stephen and W. E. Henley, the last of whom may have provided the model for Long John Silver in Treasure Island. In 1890, he settled in Samoa, where he died in 1894.[1]

A celebrity in his lifetime, Stevenson's critical reputation has fluctuated since his death, though today his works are held in general acclaim. He is currently ranked as the 26th most translated author in the world.

Il romanzo d'avventura per eccellenza, che ha appassionato generazioni di ragazzi ed ha contribuito a diffondere il mito dei pirati. Ormai è entrato talmente a fondo nell'immaginario collettivo che conosciamo trama e personaggi a menadito: ma spogliato dell'alone nostalgico-romantico cosa resta di questo libro?
Una storia solida, ben scritta e sotto certi aspetti anche moderna, pur con tutte le ingenuità del caso. Non solo non ci sono moralismi, ma il personaggio a cui vanno le simpatie del lettore (e in fondo anche dell'autore) è Long John Silver, l' astutissimo pirata ormai iconico; sulla carta sarebbe l' antagonista, ma sfido chiunque a non rimanere affascinato dai modi suadenti e dalla prontezza di ingegno che dimostra in ogni occasione. Crudele per necessità, bugiardo per vocazione, gioviale per indole: è una figura contraddittoria e sfuggente, che si colloca nell'olimpo delle creazioni letterarie.
Con un personaggio di questo calibro, un'ambientazione esotica ed una vicenda incentrata su temibili pirati e tesori nascosti, non soprende il successo di quest'opera; non sarà alta letteratura e sicuramente ad un lettore smaliziato apparirà un po' troppo semplicistica, ma è innegabile che Stevenson abbia gettato le basi per il moderno romanzo d'avventura.
Personalmente non sono mai stata un'amante del genere, quindi ho un rapporto piuttosto freddo con questo romanzo, ma i suoi meriti oggettivi sono incontrovertibili.

Arbitro metafisico tra la virtù e la colpa», dice Emilio Cecchi (nel saggio che in appendice ripubblichiamo) del principe Florizel di Boemia, protagonista di questo racconto di Stevenson: ed effettivamente il personaggio si può considerare come il capostipite di quel tipo di investigatore che sarà poi il padre Brown di Chesterton e che avrà una numerosa e non sempre rispettabile discendenza nel genere poliziesco: l'investigatore che è portatore di quella che in teologia si chiama la grazia illuminante. Ma la storia del Diamante del Rajà è soprattutto un bellissimo, fantasioso, movimentato racconto: un piccolo classico nella nitida, «classica» traduzione di Carlo Linati.… (altro)

Un avvocato londinese, Gabriel John Utterson, investiga i singolari episodi tra il suo vecchio amico, il dottor Jekyll, e il malvagio Mister Hyde. L'impatto della storia è stato universale, facendo entrare la definizione Jekyll e Hyde nel linguaggio comune a significare una persona con due distinte personalità, una buona e l'altra malvagia; o la natura normalmente buona ma talvolta totalmente imprevedibile di un individuo; in senso psicologico, è diventata la metafora dell'ambivalenza del comportamento umano, e anche del dilemma di una mente scissa tra l'Io e le sue pulsioni irrazionali.… (altro)
