«Fate and creativity of Robert Louis Stevenson» prepared by pupil 10 «A» class Kiselev Vadim Teacher Kharchenko E.V.
Why exactly Stevenson? I have decided to dedicate my presentation to Robert Louis Stevenson! Initially inspired by his realistic stories of Pirates and their many escapades.
Short biography Robert Louis Stevenson ( ), an eminent English romantic writer, who was born 13 November 1850 in Edinburgh (Scotland) into a family of construction engineers who built the Northern Lighthouses. From his youth, Robert was inclined to employment. On leaving school he entered the University of Edinburgh, where he opted for a degree in law. He was awarded his law degree, but hardly ever practised due to the state of his health. His first successes were in the literary field, which persuaded him to choose the literature of the legal profession..
The Curious Way of genius Stevenson's first steps to communication with literature were simple, reading books with pencil in hand, writing taking and making notes of speech and expression if it was something that he liked. Other than his addiction to writing adventure stories, Stevenson also composed music, playing the Piano and Flageolet a small flute Stevenson wrote over 123 musical compositions or arrangements which included solos, duets, trios and quartets for various combinations of flute, clarinet, violin, guitar, mandolin, and piano. In 1968 Robert Hughes arranged a number of Stevenson's works for a chamber orchestra, which toured the Northwest Pacific in that year.
The death of a writer Biographers believe that Stevenson did not die from infected lungs, but he died from overwork. On December 3, 1894, coming down from his office Louis saw that his beloved wife was troubled by the feeling that close family were about to experience some form of misfortune. Louis resolved to try and cheer her up. Having brought a bottle of wine from the cellar, he helped her to prepare a salad when suddenly he fell - a brain haemorrhage. Two hours later he was dead at the age of just 44.years.
