Summary

Robert Louis Stevenson reinvented the adventure genre with Treasure Island , a boys' story that appeals just as much to adults, and whose moral ambiguities turned the Victorian universe on its head. This edition celebrates the ultimate book of pirates and high adventure, and also examines how this tale of greed, murder, treachery, and evil has acquired its classic status. The book features an informative Introduction and explanatory notes by Peter Hunt, an updated bibliography, a revised chronology, a glossary of nautical terms, and two appendices--one featuring Stevenson's short fable "The Persons of the Tale" and the other highlighting comparative episodes from his sources.
