My Stevenson Myth

My Stevenson Myth RECENTLY, visiting Honolulu, it all came back to my mind clearly. I had gone out to the famous Diamond Head for two reasons I wanted to have a good view of the China Clipper sailing over, on the last lap of her transPacific flight, from Hawaii to California and to see Diamond Head lighthouse for Stevenson's sake, as it was there that he made Loudon Dodd, in The Wrecker, meet a sailor from a manofwar who inadvertently gave him some information regarding the mystery of that story. For Stevenson's sake also I had gone to Waikiki, a changed Waikiki from his day. The banyantree in the shade of which he used to sit is surrounded by bungalows. A metal plate, commemorative of him and of his young friend the Princess Kaiulani has been placed on the tree by the Daughters of Hawaii. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

RECENTLY, visiting Honolulu, it all came back to my mind clearly. I had gone out to the famous Diamond Head for two reasons I wanted to have a good view of the China Clipper sailing over, on the last lap of her transPacific flight, from Hawaii to California and to see Diamond Head lighthouse for Stevenson's sake, as it was there that he made Loudon Dodd, in The Wrecker, meet a sailor from a manofwar who inadvertently gave him some information regarding the mystery of that story. For Stevenson's sake also I had gone to Waikiki, a changed Waikiki from his day. The banyantree in the shade of which he used to sit is surrounded by bungalows. A metal plate, commemorative of him and of his young friend the Princess Kaiulani has been placed on the tree by the Daughters of Hawaii.
