AS a young Bohemian at odds with the ‘unco guid’ of Edinburgh, Robert Louis Stevenson found release in poetry, railing against Victorian hypocrisy, respectability and sexual repression. His verses could be angry, satirical and witty but also lyrical, reflective and sometimes delightfully silly. Join some of today’s poets and Stevenson fans for a reading of some lesser-known works, showing RLS was a match for his brother poets in a variety of styles, from Keats to Edward Lear, Walt Whitman, Auden, Joyce or Eliot, with even a foretaste of John Cooper Clarke.
