Stevenson, Robert Louis - Fábulas - Language: Spanish, Short Stories - Format: ePub
Un año después de publicar El extraño caso del Dr. Jekyll y Mr. Hyde (1886), Stevenson inició la escritura de sus Fábulas, que no aparecerían hasta 1896, dos años después de su muerte. La libertad que le proporcionaba no exponer (More) esta obra a la reacción de sus lectores le permitió emplear un estilo más descreído y sarcástico, preciso y elíptico. Borges, que las tradujo al español junto a Roberto Alifano, las definió como «una breve y secreta obra maestra». En 2006, la Universidad de Yale descubrió en los fondos de la colección Beinecke dos nuevas fábulas, El simio científico y El relojero, que esta edición recoge en libro por primera vez, lo que supone un acontecimiento literario. En el prólogo, Alifano destaca que más de cien años después de su publicación, esta obra «nos sigue sorprendiendo como lectores y sigue siendo una enseñanza para quienes aspiran a escribir».
Stevenson, Robert Louis - Kidnapped - Language: English, Novel - Format: ePub
David Balfour, a lad of seventeen and newly orphaned, is directed to go and live with his rich uncle, the master of the estate of Shaws in the lowlands of Scotland near Edinburgh. His uncle, Ebenezer (as close a miser as Dickens' (More) Ebenezer Scrooge), is shocked to suddenly have his young relative descend on him and tries to rid himself of David with an arranged accident. Failing that, he pays the captain of a brig to kidnap David and sell him into slavery in Carolina. A collision in the fog brings onboard the brig a survivor, Alan Breck Stewart, who is carrying a dangerous amount of gold on his person. David warns him of a plan by the brig's captain and crew to overpower him and seize the money, and then finds himself fighting alongside Alan in a battle royale. By good fortune, Alan is handy with a sword and they have access to the firearms locker, and the pair so completely defeat the crew that barely enough hands remain to sail her. Limping to port, she is holed by rocks, and David finds himself a castaway.

El anciano le dice que en el interior de la botella habita un demonio, y que ese demonio le concedería cualquier deseo, excepto alargarle la vida.

Stevenson, Robert Louis - The Black Arrow - Language: English, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
The Black Arrow tells the story of Richard (Dick) Shelton during the Wars of the Roses: how he becomes a knight, rescues his lady Joanna Sedley, and obtains justice for the murder of his father, Sir Harry Shelton. Outlaws in (More) Tunstall Forest organized by Ellis Duckworth, whose weapon and calling card is a black arrow, cause Dick to suspect that his guardian Sir Daniel Brackley and his retainers are responsible for his father's murder. Dick's suspicions are enough to turn Sir Daniel against him, so he has no recourse but to escape from Sir Daniel and join the outlaws of the Black Arrow against him. This struggle sweeps him up into the greater conflict surrounding them all. The story of the Wars of the Roses is told in miniature by The Black Arrow.
Stevenson, Robert Louis - La isla del tesoro - Language: Spanish, Novel - Format: iSilo
Stevenson, Robert Louis - La flecha negra - Language: Spanish, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
Publicada originalmente como folletín a lo largo de 1883, año en que vio también la luz como libro «La isla del tesoro», «La flecha negra» se desarrolla en los primeros años de la Guerra de las dos rosas, a mediados del siglo XV, (More) entre las casas inglesas de York (rosa blanca) y Lancaster (rosa roja) por el dominio territorial y la sucesión al trono, guerra caracterizada por las cambiante alianzas entre las familias más influyentes de Inglaterra y la intermitente locura del débil rey Enrique VI, que tan pronto apoyaba a una facción como a la otra («se acostaba York y se levantaba Lancaster»). La novela narra las aventuras del joven aspirante a caballero Richard Shelton, pupilo de Sir Daniel Brackley, señor de Tunstall —y defensor, interesado y poco fiable, de la causa de Lancaster—, que, tras haber perdido a su padre en extrañas circunstancias, sirve a las órdenes de Sir Daniel y recorre la agreste región con los mensajes de su señor. Estamos en los prolegómenos de la batalla de Shoreby, y en la cercana abadía en ruinas de Holywood se oculta la hermandad de La Flecha Negra, cuyo capitán, el misterioso John Amend-all (John Arregla-todo), un vengador justiciero que nos recuerda al mítico Robin Hood, tiene atemorizadas a las autoridades locales, pues sus certeras flechas negras, acompañadas de un mensaje, prometen cobrarse la vida de cuatro malvados personajes: «Los cuatro recibiréis lo que es de razón una flecha negra en vuestro negro corazón».
Stevenson, Robert Louis - Aventuras de un cadáver - Language: Spanish, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
Las tribulaciones de unos competidores a la caza de una herencia constituyen la base de este apasionante relato donde la rápida sucesión de acontecimientos, acompañada de un exquisito humor, mantendrá al lector en vilo como en una (More) pesadilla. Stevenson nos sorprende una vez más en Aventuras de un cadáver con su maestría para narrar lo que fue el mismo centro de su vida: la aventura. Su escritura borra los límites entre la realidad y la fantasía para, en un mágico pandemonium, confundir las imágenes con sus sombras: todo es posible en el ignorado terreno del azar.

Stevenson, Robert Louis - L'isola del Tesoro - Language: Italian, Novel - Format: iSilo
Stevenson, Robert Louis - The Master of Ballantrae - Language: English, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
Stevenson’s brooding historical romance demonstrates his most abiding theme—the elemental struggle between good and evil—as it unfolds against a hauntingly beautiful Scottish landscape, amid the fierce loyalties and violent (More) enmities that characterized Scottish history. When two brothers attempt to split their loyalties between the warring factions of the 1745 Jacobite rising, one family finds itself tragically divided.

Stevenson, Robert Louis - Treasure Island - Language: English, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on 23 May 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine (More) Young Folks between 1881 and 1882 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale noted for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality – as seen in Long John Silver – unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.
