Mad Russian the Traveller
A few years back I read "Kidnapped" for a father-son reading group; unfortunately the group kept the discussion to simple analysis of the characters and moralistic aspects of the story. I wanted to discuss the social implications in the story, and some other aspects of the novel. I'm now just going to enjoy Stevenson's writing and keep my thoughts to myself. English literature majors don't even like this writer since Virginia Wolfe poo-pooed him. I think he is a better writer than Virginia. :D

This omnibus edition unfortunately out of print. While I am currently reading it--finished "Treasure Island", "Kidnapped", "The Master of Ballantrae", all for the second time (at least), reading "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"--which is actually very short--in honor of the scary season.

I read all of these as a kid. At the time I didn't know I was reading real books, only that they were exciting with plenty of pirates, highwaymen and young men having adventures. Didn't understand t

i think master of language but perhaps less so of art with chief significance or even partly explanation for canonical preservation being in relation of scotland to the empire which is uncertain and maybe more symbiotic than anything else.

ok ok i enjoyed it well enough. but after six books i just couldnt take any more. and it was so tedious to get through so much of one author at once. im never reading another bindup, its single volumes only for me now.

Some of the language--particularly the parts written with Scottish brogue--makes it read a little slower than most, but all of the books in the volume are well worth the time. I enjoyed them all.

Loved this collection of all the novels and it has certainly brought back my love of both pirates and Scotland into the foreground. I was intrigued by Prince Otto and Kidnapped. Good stuff that has aged quite well.

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