Kidnapping by Robert Louis Stevenson is a Scottish poet, writer and essayist who has been praised by many writers.

Robert Louis Stevenson is a nineteenth-century master of adventure storytelling, and his Treasure Island is the most prominent adventure story after Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe. Brian W. Alderson (1959) believes He is the most influential author in children’s literature after Daniel Defoe. Robert Louis Stevenson was born in 1850 in Edinburgh.

His father was a lighthouse engineer. Although his parents were very religious, they were not strict about their child. But his nurse’s folk beliefs kept him from having nightmares, which may be why, after entering university, he gradually turned away from family principles and religion.
Robert was a late child who learned to read at the age of 7 or 8, but before that he dictated and wrote his stories to his mother and nurse. They first studied engineering at the University of Edinburgh, but after a while He left law and studied law, and due to his literary inclinations, he started working with a magazine.

In 1880, he married the American technician Osborne and moved to the United States. He began writing travelogues and composed poetry throughout his life. The sequel story was published in the magazine and then in book form. He reached the pinnacle of success between 1883 and 1886 with the publication of the stories The Black Monkey, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and The Hostage.
