Espectacular, desde la primera página hasta la última. Ya pocas veces se ve en un escritor un placer tan inmenso para contar historias sin afectaciones o adornos insustanciales a lo narrado. Estos son cuentos que se agradecen en la noches, en las tardes de lluvia on en pequeños ratos libres y que se recordarán y podrán volver a contarse alrededor de alguna fogata, entre amigos.

Babil Kitaplığı içerisinde şu ana kadar okuduğum beni en çok sıkan kitap oldu. Yazarın kısa hikayelere göre anlatımı çok ağır.

Descrições brilhantes do sogro mago do protagonista, encontrando assim um elenco refrescante: e é uma história contada de forma bela e cheia de todas as bases literárias do mundo da ficção. Mais uma vez as personagens femininas de Stevenson são um exemplo de personalidade, inteligência, dedicação e bravura apesar de algo limitadas ao papel de boa esposa do protagonista.
Mas a história é em si um labirínto estranho e vago que divaga durante muito tempo. O leitor já se perdeu há muito passadas sete

Stevenson, Robert Louis. THE ISLE OF VOICES and Other Stories. (1882-1893; this edition, 2007). ****. It’s always a pleasure to start off a quarterly reading campaign with a good book. Stevenson was a master of the short story, and published three volumes of collections in his lifetime: “New Arabian Nights” (1882), “The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables” (1887), and “Island Night’s Entertainments” (1893). This selection by The Folio Society (illustrated by Michael Foreman) brings together eig ...more

Stevenson'un yazdığı dört öykü dışında, Borges'in öykü tadında bir de önsözünden oluşan bir kitap.
Aslında, "hayatı roman gibi" olan yazarı tanımak, farklı tatlar içeren öyküler okumak oldukça keyifli...
Ondokuzuncu yy sonlarından, farklı coğrafyalardan seslerini duyuran öyküler...

Este livro incluía também “O Demónio da Garrafa (1893)”, “Markheim”, e “Thrawn Janet”. Em todos os contos se distingue bem a simplicidade do autor. Os contos exploram o sobrenatural de formas diversas, sendo no primeiro quase uma aventura, no segundo uma história de amor, no terceiro uma pequena divagação sobre a natureza do mal (que me fez lembrar o “Crime e Castigo” de Dostoievski), e por fim uma pequena história de horror. O estilo é bastante fluído a condizer com o conteúdo, o que por um lad ...more

This is a second selection of 10 of Stevenson's adult short stories. Again, I greatly enjoyed them. The Bottle Imp was a particularly interesting fantasy.

Robert Louis (Balfour) Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of English literature. He was greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling and Vladimir Nabokov.

Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature. It is o
