Life is not a matter of holding good cards,
but of playing a poor hand well.

Robert Louis Stevenson

One of the recurring themes in the works of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 -1894) is the mixture of good and evil in mankind, and the impossibility of separating the two. His two most enduring books, 'Treasure Island' and 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde' illustrate this point, and the depth of his characterisation was very influential on later writers.
