Monomaniacs, evolutionary science and the influence of Stevenson in Wells's The Island of Doctor Moreau

  This essay unravels some of the Stevensonian influences and literary allusions that Wells drew upon when conceiving The Island of Doctor Moreau. What emerges is a clear recognition of Stevenson as a major late-nineteenth-century author who played a significant role in the inauguration of some of the new literary genres that emerged during the twentieth century.
