Treasure Island


A literary celebrity during his lifetime, R. L. Stevenson now ranks among the 30 most translated authors in the world, just below Charles Dickens.

G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he "seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins."
'Treasure Island' is one of the greatest adventure novels and best pirate stories, a tale of "pirates and buried gold." Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, it is an adventure tale known for its atmosphere, characters and action. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of 'Treasure Island' on popular perception of pirates is vast, including treasure maps with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen with parrots on their shoulders.
