Robert Louis Stevenson
Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (1850-1894) was a late romantic British writer. He managed to introduce two works into the history of literature: Treasure Island and the short horror novel Doctor Jekyll and mr. Hyde. The first is the initial and most outstanding adventurous narrative about pirates, laying the foundations of this type of imagery, such as the use of treasure maps and other sorts of already mythical objects in the world of pirates. The second is a short horror novel that still makes your hair stand on end today and that lays the foundations for dual personalities, so often used later in cinema.
In addition, he wrote many other works such as travel chronicles, stories, etc.
