The Faith of Robert Louis Stevenson (Classic Reprint)
No apology is needed for another book concerning Robert Louis Stevenson. It would be impossible to have too much of him: and while his faith has been touched upon in passing by most of those who have written about him, it has never yet been selected for special and detailed study. But a large, and for the most part a very excellent, literature has for the past nine years been gathering round his personality and his work, so that the difficulty grows ever greater for a new writer. How much may be taken for granted? How much must be explained? It may be expected that some will read this book who are intimately acquainted with the subject, and others to whom it is almost wholly unknown. It is an arduous task that lies before him who would offer anything of even the slightest value to both these classes. Yet I venture to hope that what I have written may tempt some to enter one of the richest and most delightful regions in modern English literature, and may interest others to whom that region is already familiar.
I have to thank Mr. Graham Balfour for his generous and cordial permission to make use of his Biography - a permission of which I have availed myself with obvious freedom.
