Robert Louis Stevenson in the Pacific( )

Book Description:

Roslyn Jolly examines a crucial period (1887-1894) in Stevenson's life, focusing on the self-transformation wrought in his Pacific travel-writing and political texts. As his geographical and cultural horizons expanded, Stevenson's professional sphere also enlarged. A key feature of the study is Jolly's analysis of the resistance of Victorian readers, not only to the Pacific subject matter of Stevenson's later works, but also to his experiments with new styles and genres.
