Treasure Island

Treasure Island

  

by Robert Louis Stevenson

The Treasure Map

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

The whole idea for Treasure Island started with Robert Louis Stevenson and his girlfriend's son designing an imaginary island together, so it should be no surprise that a map of Treasure Island plays a huge role in this novel. For more on this exciting document, check out "Setting" and "In a Nutshell."
