SHARE Although studying creativity is considered a legitimate scientific discipline nowadays, it is still a very young one.
Every pirate stereotype that we take for granted these days we can see the foundation somewhere in this magic tale.
I went into the task of reading this like a happy youth, wide-eyed looking forward to experiencing a legendary story for t Treasure Island is arguably one of the most influential tales in the world of fiction.
I went into the task of reading this like a happy youth, wide-eyed looking forward to experiencing a legendary story for the first time without being hindered with prior knowledge of the narrative, the characters, the pace and the plot twists.
So the story goes something like this. An alcoholic ex-pirate Captain spends his days in a local bar drinking himself to death whilst singing jolly pirate songs.
He, unfortunately, passes away and leaves a chest which contains a secret map amongst other treasures. The map is highly sought after by all the wrong people. Livesey and a squire, Mr. Trelawney and they decide to venture to this mystical treasure island to hunt for said treasure.
Leaving from Bristol, they gather a ships worth of pirates and hands. So off they go on this adventure.
They get the treasure and go home and live happily ever after. The main protagonist, Jim is a great character. The fact Jim is a young man who performs extraordinary deeds, often going against the odds on the Hispaniola the trusty vessel that takes them to treasure island or the island itself amongst hardened sea-faring men means we really have his back and support his deeds throughout the tale.
We feel close to him because of how well Stevenson writes this character. Every time the plot progresses, it is because of an amazing deed that Jim has done, often on his own back without the consultation of the most senior members of the group.
We route for him every second of the way because he is us. Mutiny some might say. A split is presented so Jim, Dr, Squire and a few trusted men are on one side.
He is the most complex character in this short book. Peg legged, parrot on his shoulder "pieces of eight" are some of his characterisations that you will probably see some year-old child imitating this Halloween. You never quite know where you stand with Silver.
He starts off seeming good. Jim overhears his plot of mutiny whilst hiding in a barrel. At that point, he is portrayed as purely evil but towards the end, he seems more human and complex.
Sticking up for Jim Hawkins when the rest of his sea mates want to kill the poor lad.
It is ingeniously written that in such a short book we can care about so many of the players and their complexity is unrivaled. There are lots of cool scenes. Shootouts on the Island between the two factions. Meeting Ben Gunn and when Jim goes back to the safe haven of the wooden castle expecting to regroup with his friends but alas I really enjoyed this.
So different to Dr. Hyde that I have previously read by Stevenson. Yet, that makes a good author, being able to flaunt his linguistic skills in various genres making tales such as these which will last forever.Join the Sixties generation. Masthead created by Good & Associates.

According to the creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, they thought it would be impossible to put a character like Archie Bunker on lateth century television. But then they came up with the idea that it might be allowed if the character were an animated nine (formerly eight) year-old boy living in the mountain town of South Park, Colorado.
