Best known for Treasure Island, Kidnapped and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde he was also very interested in the craft of writing. In The Art of Writing Stevenson sets out a series of essays, offering advice on subjects ranging from finding inspiration to the technical methods of writing. He considers the choice of words, plotting and style and discusses the potential for good that literature has - and the responsibility of the writer to use that power wisely.
