Confidence

By: Henry James

Chapter I. It was in the early days of April; Bernard Longueville had been spending the winter in Rome. He had travelled northward with the consciousness of several social duties that appealed to him from the further side of the Alps, but he was under the charm of the Italian spring, and he made a pretext for lingering. He had spent five days at Siena, where he had intended to spend but two, and still it was impossible to continue his journey. He was a young man of a con...

Sandra Belloni by George Meredith, Volume 1

By: George Meredith

Chapter I. We are to make acquaintance with some serious damsels, as this English generation knows them, and at a season verging upon May. The ladies of Brookfield, Arabella, Cornelia, and Adela Pole, daughters of a flourishing City-of-London merchant, had been told of a singular thing: that in the neighboring fir-wood a voice was to be heard by night, so wonderfully sweet and richly toned, that it required their strong sense to correct strange imaginings concerning it. ...

A Trip to Manitoba

By: Mary Fitzgibbon

The Canada Pacific Railway, so frequently referred to in the following pages, is now almost an accomplished fact.

Of the value of this line to the Dominion and the mother country there cannot be two opinions. The system of granting...

Autobiography and Selected Essays

By: Thomas Henry Huxley

EVERYONE knows that that superficial film of the earth?s substance, hardly ten miles thick, which is accessible to human investigation, is composed for the most part of beds or strata of stone, the consolidated muds and sands of former seas and lakes, which have been deposited one upon the other, and hence are the older the deeper they lie. These multitudinous strata present such resemblances and differences among themselves that they are capable of classification into g...

The Desert and the Sown

By: Mary Hallock Foote

It was an evening of sudden mildness following a dry October gale. The colonel had miscalculated the temperature by one log?only one, he declared, but that had proved a pitchy one, and the chimney bellowed with flame. From end to end the room was alight with it, as if the stored-up energies of a whole pine-tree had been sacrificed in the consumption of that four-foot stick.

New Arabian Nights

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

THE SUICIDE CLUB, STORY OF THE YOUNG MAN WITH THE CREAM TARTS. During his residence in London, the accomplished Prince Florizel of Bohemia gained the affection of all classes by the seduction of his manner and by a well-considered generosity.

The Dawn of a Tomorrow

By: Frances Hodgson Burnett

There are always two ways of looking at a thing, frequently there are six or seven; but two ways of looking at a London fog are quite enough. When it is thick and yellow in the streets and stings a man?s throat and lungs as he breathes it, an awakening in the early morning is either an unearthly and grewsome, or a mysteriously enclosing, secluding, and comfortable thing.

The Woman with the Fan

By: Robert Hichens

Chapter I. IN a large and cool drawing-room of London a few people were scattered about, listening to a soprano voice that was singing to the accompaniment of a piano. The sound of the voice came from an inner room, towards which most of these people were looking earnestly. Only one or two seemed indifferent to the fascination of the singer. A little woman, with oily black hair and enormous dark eyes, leaned back on a sofa, playing with a scarlet fan and glancing sideway...

The Waste Land

By: T. S. Eliot

THE BURIAL OF THE DEAD. APRIL is the cruelest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain. Winter kept us warm, covering Earth in forgetful snow, feeding A little life with dried tubers. Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade, and went on in sunlight, into the Hofgarten, 10 And drank coffee, and talked for an hour.
