Description for SELECTED POEMS by Robert Louis Stevenson:

Far more than in his famous novels, it was in verse that Robert Louis Stevenson felt able to give direct expression to his deepest feelings about friendship, love, and nostalgia. Fascinated by a wide variety of verse techniques, Stevenson produced superb work in styles ranging from folk ballads to witty conversational offerings for his friends. Pieces using the stanza form and dialect of Robert Burns rank among the most attractive poetry in the Scots tradition. Also featured here are many uncollected poems, substantial extracts from the published collections, and the complete "A Child's Garden of Verses", an extraordinarily evocative picture of childhood loneliness, visions, and fears.
