The Bottle Imp (O le Fagu Aitu)

Author(s): Robert Louis Stevenson

Classic fiction

Robert Louis Stevenson considered his supernatural short story The Bottle Imp one of his best. A Faustian folktale transplanted to the Pacific, The Bottle Imp was the only one of Stevenson's works to be translated into a Polynesian language in his lifetime, as the Samoan O le Fagu Aitu. Featuring an extensive introduction by Stevenson scholar Roger G Swearingen, and accompanied by the original illustrations, this edition is the first to publish the English and Samoan versions together.
