‘Requiem’ In Full

One of his best-known poems, Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Requiem" is also one of the most elliptically cited. The second stanza is missing in most anthologies. And in the penultimate line, "the" is almost always inserted before "sea," even though that’s not how Stevenson wrote it.

James Winegar, the director of the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum in Samoa, where Stevenson is buried, shared with us a copy of the original "Requiem," in the author’s own hand.
