Olalla

Olalla by Robert Louis Stevenson
By: (1850-1894)

“Olalla” was a “shilling shocker” written for the Christmas season in 1885, just before the publication of Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The nameless protagonist of this Gothic tale, a wounded soldier, goes to the Spanish countryside to recuperate. He finds himself enthralled by the beautiful Olalla, the daughter of his hostess, whose family conceals a terrible secret.

Dedication

MY DEAR LADY TAYLOR ,

To your name , if I wrote on brass , I could add nothing ; it has been already written higher than I could dream to reach , by a strong and dear hand ; and if I now dedicate to you these tales , it is not as the writer who brings you his work , but as the friend who would remind you of his affection .
