Anna Karenina, Vol. 5

By: Leo Tolstoy, Graf

PART FIVE: I. Princess Shcherbatskaia considered that it was out of the question for the wedding to take place before Lent, just five weeks off, since not half the trousseau could possibly be ready by that time. But she could not but agree with Levin that to fix it for after Lent would be putting it off too late, as an old aunt of Prince Shcherbatsky's was seriously ill and might die, and then the mourning would delay the wedding still longer. And therefore, deciding to ...

Anna Karenina, Vol. 1

By: Leo Tolstoy, Graf

Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. Everything was in confusion in the Oblonskys' house. The wife had discovered that the husband was carrying on an intrigue with a French girl, who had been a governess in their family, and she had announced to her husband that she could not go on living in the same house with him. This position of affairs had now lasted two days, and not only the husband and wife themselves, but all the members ...

A Propos de William Shakespeare

By: Victor Hugo

William Shakespeare naquit a Stratford-sur-Avon, dans une maison sous les tuiles de laquelle etait cachee une profession de foi catholique commençant par ces mots : Moi John Shakespeare. John etait le pere de William. La maison, situee dans la ruelle Henley Street, etait humble, la chambre ou Shakespeare vint au monde etait miserable ; des murs blanchis a la chaux, des solives noires s'entrecoupant en croix, au fond une assez large fenetre avec de petites vitres ou l'on ...

Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, Volume 1

By: Edgar Allan Poe

The epithets Grotesque and Arabesque will be found to indicate with sufficient precision the prevalent tenor of the tales here published. But from the fact that, during a period of some two or three years, I have written five-and-twenty short stories whose general character may be so briefly defined, it can- not be fairly inferred -- at all events it is not truly inferred -- that I have, for this species of writing, any inordinate, or indeed any peculiar taste or pre- po...

Faust : Der Tragoedie Erster Teil

By: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Zueignung. / Ihr naht euch wieder, schwankende Gestalten, / Die frueh sich einst dem trueben Blick gezeigt. / Versuch ich wohl, euch diesmal festzuhalten? / Fuehl ich mein Herz noch jenem Wahn geneigt? / Ihr draengt euch zu! nun gut, so moegt ihr walten, / Wie ihr aus Dunst und Nebel um mich steigt; / Mein Busen fuehlt sich jugendlich erschuettert / Vom Zauberhauch, der euren Zug umwittert.`...

The Deeds of God through the Franks

By: Robert Levine

The four-year period (1095-1099) between the call for crusade by Pope Urban II at the Council of Claremont and the capture of Jerusalem produced a remarkable amount of historiography, both in Western Europe and in Asia Minor. Three accounts by western European eye-witnesses—an anonymous soldier or priest in Bohemund's army, Fulker of Chartres, and Raymond of Aguilers—provoked later twelfth-century Latin writers from various parts of what are now France, Germany, England,...

Atlantis : The Antideluvian World

By: Ignatius Donnelly

PART I. THE HISTORY OF ATLANTIS. CHAPTER I. THE PURPOSE OF THE BOOK. This book is an attempt to demonstrate several distinct and novel propositions. These are: 1. That there once existed in the Atlantic Ocean, opposite the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea, a large island, which was the remnant of an Atlantic continent, and known to the ancient world as Atlantis. 2. That the description of this island given by Plato is not, as has been long supposed, fable, but veritable hi...

In the Days of the Comet

By: H.G. Wells

Excerpt: I saw a gray-haired man, a figure of hale age, sitting at a desk and writing: He seemed to be in a room in a tower, very high, so that through the tall window on his left one perceived only distances, a remote horizon of sea, a headland and that vague haze and glitter in the sunset that many miles away marks a city. All the appointments of this room were orderly and beautiful, and in some subtle quality, in this small difference and that, new to me and strange. ...

The Story of the Gadsby

By: Rudyard Kipling

Excerpt: Dear Mafflin,--You will remember that I wrote this story as an Awful Warning. None the less you have seen fit to disregard it and have followed Gadsby?s example--as I betted you would. I acknowledge that you paid the money at once, but you have prejudiced the mind of Mrs. Mafflin against myself, for though I am almost the only respectable friend of your bachelor days, she has been darwaza band to me throughout the season. Further, she caused you to invite me to ...

The Acharnians

By: Aristophanes

What cares have not gnawed at my heart and how few have been the pleasures in my life! Four, to be exact, while my troubles have been as countless as the grains of sand on the shore! Let me see! of what value to me have been these few pleasures? Ah! I remember that I was delighted in soul when Cleon had to cough up those five talents; I was in ecstasy and I love the Knights for this deed; it is an honour to Greece. But the day when I was impatiently awaiting a piece by A...

A Blot in the 'scutcheon and Other Dramas

By: Robert Browning

ROBERT BROWNING stands, in respect to his origin and his career, in marked contrast to the two aristocratic poets beside whose dramas his Blot in the 'Scutcheon is here printed. His father was a bank clerk and a dissenter at a time when dissent meant exclusion from Society; the poet went neither to one of the great public schools nor to Oxford or Cambridge; and no breath of scandal touched his name. Born in London in 1812, he was educated largely by private tutors, and s...

Two Poets

By: Honoré de Balzac

At the time when this story opens, the Stanhope press and the ink- distributing roller were not as yet in general use in small provincial printing establishments. Even at Angouleme, so closely connected through its paper-mills with the art of typography in Paris, the only machinery in use was the primitive wooden invention to which the language owes a figure of speech -- the press groans was no mere rhetorical expression in those days. Leather ink-balls were still used i...

The Three Musketeers

By: Pere Alexander Dumas

AUTHOR'S PREFACE: In which it is proved that, notwithstanding their names' ending in OS and IS, the heroes of the story which we are about to have the honor to relate to our readers have nothing mythological about them. A short time ago, while making researches in the Royal Library for my History of Louis XIV, I stumbled by chance upon the Memoirs of M. d'Artagnan, printed—as were most of the works of that period, in which authors could not tell the truth without the ris...

In the Fourth Year Anticipations of a World Peace

By: H.G. Wells

Excerpt: In the latter half of 1914 a few of us were writing that this war was a ?War of Ideas.? A phrase, ?The War to end War,? got into circulation, amidst much sceptical comment. It was a phrase powerful enough to sway many men, essentially pacifists, towards taking an active part in the war against German imperialism, but it was a phrase whose chief content was its aspiration. People were already writing in those early days of disarmament and of the abolition of the ...
