Stevenson, Muriel Spark, Sir Walter Scott and Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle were born in the city. John Buchan, J.M. Barrie and Robert
Burns lived there. Visiting literati who praised and condemned
it include Dickens, Defoe, Tennyson, Thackeray, Dr Johnson and

and controversial works of literature such as The Strange Case
of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Regeneration
and the novels of Irvine Welsh and Ian Rankin. Edinburgh's main
