The studies are "familiar" in the sense of "informal" or "conversational" in style. However, they attempt to bring their subjects to life, often by creating novelistic characterizations of the men and addressing the books from the standpoint of an engaged reader rather than a scholarly critic.
At the same time, Robert Lewis Stevenson provides occasional footnotes citing his sources, so he is also concerned to be seen as a scholar. The essays are also noteworthy for combining the writers' moral and aesthetic assessments.
Familiar Stories of Men and Books is an excellent addition to your vintage Robert Lewis Stevenson collection or home library.
