Like many authors, Robert Louis Stephenson was influenced by events in his life. For example, he was often very ill as a child, and he used his imagination to write "A Child's… Garden of Verses," which enabled him to make the best of having to stay indoors and not be outside with boys his own age. Later, he traveled (often for health reasons, to get to better climates) and what he saw on his travels influenced his writing. Many times, he wrote fiction that reflected the wish for excitement and adventure: "Treasure Island" is a good example of this.
Stevenson's mother kept him inside through the damp Scottish winters because of his tuberculosis. Stevenson wrote the first draft of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in three days. A…fter he let his wife read it, he burned the manuscript-and then wrote the whole thing again from scratch! Stevenson was good friends with David Kalākaua, King of Hawaii.

In the poem,"Armies in the Fire" certain words are used as connotation for feelings and the author chooses specific words to connect the title. This poem takes place at night …time and it's gloomy and "empty". Therefore the colour blue is used to show a feeling of sadness and coldness. The "staring eyes" shows a feeling of surprise as the poet watches the "armies fall" and the "cities blazing" These words help to show display stronger imagery for the readers. The author also pays close attention to diction throughout the poem. Words such as "warmly", "flickers", and "blazing" are used connect the word "fire" in the title. Whereas words such as "marching", "tower", and "dies" connects to the word "armies" in the title. The author made sure to choose words that would keep the feel of the title throughout the entire poem to add a sense of completeness. Overall, the poem, "Armies in the Fire", uses meaningful language to show the author's feelings and to stay on topic. Moreover, the fire means the light is coming towards him. This can sort of be a hyperbole, exaggerating the effect of the light. Plus, my prediction what the author is doing is sitting on a valley, watching the light of the city.
On December 3, 1894, at the age of 44, Stevenson died of a stroke. The natives carried his body to the peak of Mount Vaea, where they buried him. His poem "Requiem" is inscrib…ed on his gravestone as an epitaph: "Under the wide and starry sky, / Dig the grave and let me lie. / Glad did I live, and gladly die, / And I laid me down with a will. / This be the verse you grave for me: / "Here he lies where he longed to be. / Home is the sailor, home from the sea, / And the hunter home from the hill."
