Robert Louis Stevenson was a Scottish writer best known for his childhood classics Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and his novella, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The popularity of Stevenson's works accorded him much fame during his life, and he is among the most translated authors in the world. Stevenson and his family immigrated to Samoa in 1890 where he became enmeshed in local culture and politics, taking the name Tusitala (Samoan for "Teller of Tales") and advocating for better colonial administration from European officials. Although a celebrity in his lifetime, Stevenson's work fell out of favour after his death in 1894, and did not experience a resurgence until the mid-twentieth century.
