St. Ives, The Weir of Hermiston, and Poetry by Robert Louis Stevenson

Автор: andrey4444. Опубликовано в Роберт Луис Стивенсон

The book includes two of the novel "St. Ives", "The Weir of Germiston", as well as poems and ballads.

"St. Ives" is the last novel by the great Robert Louis Stevenson, in no way inferior to his acknowledged masterpiece "Treasure Island" and "The Black arrow". The novel, which remained unfinished — was restored on drafts of the author. A fascinating history of French youths caught during the Napoleonic wars, one of many British prisoners of war. The story of his dangerous and exciting adventures and difficult, multifaceted political game, in which he suddenly found himself embroiled. The book I read, literally with bated breath...

Because of the death in 1894 of tuberculosis, the writer to finish this novel did not. "St. Ives", with the approval of the heirs, was finished Arthur Quiller-Couch, and was released in 1897.

The novel "The Weir of Germiston", according to many critics, could be one of the major masterpieces of the XIX century. However, the premature death of Stevenson's tuberculosis didn't let him finish. Was written only six chapters, which are then published in some collections of essays.
