About the Author:

robert louis stevenson is Novelist and essayist, was born at Edinburgh, the son of Thomas Stevenson, a distinguished civil engineer. His health was extremely delicate. He was destined for the engineering profession, in which his family had for two generations been eminent, but having neither inclination nor physical strength for it, he in 1871 exchanged it for law, and was called to the Bar in 1875, but never practised. From childhood his interests had been literary, and in 1871 he began to contribute to the Edinburgh University Magazine and the Portfolio. A tour in a canoe in 1876 led to the publication in 1878 of his first book, An Inland Voyage. In the same year, The New Arabian Nights, afterwards separately published appeared in magazines, and in 1879 he brought out Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes. In that year he went to California and married Mrs. Osbourne. Returning to Europe in 1880 he entered upon a period of productiveness which, in view of his wretched health, was, both as regards quantity and worth, highly remarkable

From AudioFile:

Against a background of soft orchestral music a star-studded cast reads more than sixty of Stevenson's beloved poems. The wide range of performers--from Ben Kingsley and Susan Sontag, to Michael York and Carl Reiner--helps relieve the tedium of listening to one short poem after another. Despite the fine readings, Stevenson's brand of dated innocence would be more effective in combination with other more modern kinds of poetry. Although the poems are listed on each side, with the reader for each, access is a problem. If counter reference numbers were provided, a parent and child could pick a favorite poem and listen together as they follow the text in a poetry anthology. J.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
