Robert Louis Stevenson by Frank McLynn

Book Description

A sensual Calvinist, a Tory radical, a consumptive celebrant of action, a Passionate Scot who chose to live anywhere but Scotland. Not for nothing was Robert Louis Stevenson the author of "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde". The greatest of Scottish novelists, Stevenson lived a life as extraordinary and as absorbing as his books. But it was a life tormented by an autocratic father, recurring illness, the prudery of the Victorian reading public and, most of all, the stresses imposed on him by his wife and stepchildren. This powerful new study is published to mark the centenery of Stevenson's death at the age of forty-four.

Books By Author Frank McLynn

Genghis Khan by Frank McLynn Genghis Khan, Paperback (September 2016)

From an acclaimed historian, a new and definitive biography of the great conqueror Genghis Khan

Bonnie Prince Charlie by Frank McLynn Bonnie Prince Charlie, Paperback (November 2015)

Shows the man Charles Edward Stuart who became known to legend as Bonnie Prince Charlie and whose unsuccessful challenge to the Hanoverian throne was followed by the crushing defeat at Culloden in 1746. The author argues that failure was far from inevitable and history in 1745 came close to taking quite a different turn.

Crime and Punishment in Eighteenth Century England by Frank McLynn Crime and Punishment in Eighteenth Century England, Paperback (November 2014)

McLynn provides the first comprehensive view of crime and its consequences in the eighteenth century: why was England notorious for violence? Why did the death penalty prove no deterrent? Was it a crude means of redistributing wealth?

Road Not Taken by Frank McLynn Road Not Taken, Paperback (July 2013)

Takes seven occasions when Britain came closest to revolution: the Peasants' Revolt of 1381; the Jack Cade rebellion of 1450; the Pilgrimage of Grace in 1536; the English Civil Wars of the 1640s; the Jacobite Rising of 1745-6; the Chartist Movement of 1838-48; and the General Strike of 1926.
