"Of all my verse, like not a single line;

But like my title, for it is not mine."

-Robert Louis Stevenson, Underwoods


Underwoods (1887), by Robert Louis Stevenson, is a collection of original poetry that Stevenson wrote during one of the most prolific periods of his career. Like his more famous collection, A Child's Garden of Verses, it was inspired by the author's own childhood and is written in both English and his native Scots.
