Editorial Reviews

Review

Easily accessible, bottom-of-the-page notes provide outstanding illumination of the text s literary and historical contexts, particularly biblical and nautical references that might otherwise elude modern readers. No other edition provides a better insight into the (sometimes murky) compositional processes behind this classic work of fiction. For fans of Sutherland s unique detective-style readings, the appendix of puzzles and conundrums will prove an added bonus. Roslyn Jolly, University of New South Wales

Broadview s new edition of Robert Louis Stevenson s classic Treasure Island is an excellent teaching text because of its detailed textual annotations, which help guide readers through the book s nineteenth-century context. As a historian, I appreciate how these annotations, along with the five appendices, place Stevenson s fantasy in context with popular seventeenth- and eighteenth-century textual influences on pirate mythology. John Sutherland finishes the edition with a series of puzzles and conundrums raised by the story; these are bound to stimulate discussion in a seminar setting. Mark Hanna, University of California, San Diego
