Summary
Written for children, but also popular with adults, Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses was originally published in 1885 under the title Penny Whistles. A collection of poetry for children, the volume contains about 65 poems and verses. Some of the more popular verses include The Lamplighter, which many critics believe to be autobiographical, reflecting on Stevenson's sickly childhood and his contracting of severe tuberculosis, and Young Night Thought, which mentions the joys and horrors of dreaming. Today, the collection continues to be printed in beautifully illustrated editions and sold in many languages. In 1923, scholar Terrot Reavelely Glover even translated the poems into Latin
