Weir Of Hermiston

By Stevenson, Robert Louis




Considered Robert Louis Stevenson's masterpiece, and left unfinished at the time of his death, this novel conveys in theme, style, and tone the power of Stevenson's creative originality. It is set in Edinburgh at the end of the 18th century and reflects the author's fascination with the relationship between father and son and his preoccupation with the battle between good and evil within every man.

Weir of Hermiston: An Unfinished Romance

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

v+266 pages. Small octavo (7 1/4" x 5") bund in original publisher's green cloth with gilt lettering and decorations to spine and front cover. First American edition. Weir of Hermiston (1896) is an unfinished novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. Many have considered it his masterpiece. It was cut short by Stevenson's sudden death from a cerebral hemorrhage. The novel is set in Edinburgh and the Lothians at the time of the Napoleonic Wars.Plot summary: The novel tells the story of Archie Weir, a youth born into an upper-class Edinburgh family. Because of his Romantic sensibilities, Archie is estranged from his father, who is depicted as the coarse and cruel judge of a criminal court. By mutual consent, Archie is banished from his family of origin and sent to live as the local laird on a family property in the vicinity of Hermiston (now on Edinburgh's outskirts, and occupied by Heriot-Watt University, but then out in the countryside). While serving as the laird, Archie meets and falls in love with Kirstie (Christina). As the two are deepening their relationship, the book breaks off. Confusingly, there are two characters in the novel called Christina. Condition: Corners lightly bumped, spine sunned else a better than very good copy.
