REVISING ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Immagine correlata

On 3 December 1894  Robert Louis Stevenson  died very suddenly. He had defied his weak lungs for over 40 years, but in the end it was a brain haemorrhage which killed him. He was buried on the summit of Mount Vaea, Vailima, on a small Samoan island in the Pacific with his “Requiem”. 
Fourteen years earlier, when he was very ill in California, he had composed his own epitaph:

"Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill."
