Summary
In this introduction to Robert Louis Stevenson's life and work from the Famous Author's series, the audience gets a look at the Scotland of the nineteenth century and the members of Stevenson's family. By the time Stevenson went to university, he'd committed to becoming a writer and sought out a bohemian, literary life, which upset and intermittently estranged his father. After he suffered some illness, his parents accepted his lifestyle and supported his writing. Not until he married his wife Fanny did Stevenson produce successful fiction. They moved often to find a climate suitable to Stevenson's health, but were happy and found literary success
