The Forsyte Saga

By: John Galsworthy

Preface: ?The Forsyte Saga? was the title originally destined for that part of it which is called ?The Man of Property;? and to adopt it for the collected chronicles of the Forsyte family has indulged the Forsytean tenacity that is in all of us. The word Saga might be objected to on the ground that it connotes the heroic and that there is little heroism in these pages. But it is used with a suitable irony; and, after all, this long tale, though it may deal with folk in f...

Coral Reefs

By: Charles Darwin

Editorial Note: Although in some respects more technical in their subjects and style than Darwin?s ?Journal,? the books here reprinted will never lose their value and interest for the originality of the observations they contain. Many parts of them are admirably adapted for giving an insight into problems regarding the structure and changes of the earth?s surface, and in fact they form a charming introduction to physical geology and physiography in their application to s...

By: Marcel Proust

Ma mere, quand il fut question d?avoir pour la premiere fois M. de Norpois a diner, ayant exprime le regret que le Professeur Cottard fut en voyage et qu?elle-meme eut entierement cesse de frequenter Swann, car l?un et l?autre eussent sans doute interesse l?ancien Ambassadeur, mon pere repondit qu?un convive eminent, un savant illustre, comme Cottard, ne pouvait jamais mal faire dans un diner, mais que Swann, avec son ostentation, avec sa maniere de crier sur les toits s...

My Dearest Maude, You know that your mother suggested, and we agreed, that we should be married about the beginning of September. Don?t you think that we might say the 3rd of August?

A Brief History of the United States

By: Barnes & Co.

The experience of all teachers testifies to the lamentable deficiency in historical knowledge among their pupils; not that children dislike the incidents and events of history, for, indeed, they prefer them to the improbable tales which now form the bulk of their reading, but because the books are ?dry.? Those which are interesting are apt to be lengthy, and the mind consequently becomes confused by the multitude of details, while the brief ones often contain merely the ...

To the Last Man

It was inevitable that in my efforts to write romantic history of the great West I should at length come to the story of a feud. For long I have steered clear of this rock. But at last I have reached it and must go over it, driven by my desire to chronicl

Bunyan Characters

By: Alexander Whyte

John Bunyan?s Holy War was first published in 1682, six years before its illustrious author?s death. Bunyan wrote this great book when he was still in all the fullness of his intellectual power and in all the ripeness of his spiritual experience. The Holy War is not the Pilgrim?s Progress?there is only one Pilgrim?s Progress. At the same time, we have Lord Macaulay?s word for it that if the Pilgrim?s Progress did not exist the Holy War would be the best allegory that eve...

Poems

By: T. S. Eliot

I was neither at the hot gates Nor fought in the warm rain Nor knee deep in the salt marsh, heaving a cutlass, Bitten by flies, fought. My house is a decayed house, and the jew squats on the window sill, the owner, Spawned in some estaminet of Antwerp, Blistered in Brussels, patched and peeled in London. The goat coughs at night in the field overhead; Rocks, moss, stonecrop, iron, merds. The woman keeps the kitchen, makes tea, Sneezes at evening, poking the peevish gutter.

The Swiss Family Robinson Told in Words of One Syllable

By: Mary Godolphin

Chapter I. WHEN one has a good tale to tell, he should try to be brief, and not say more than he can help ere he makes a fair start; so I shall not say a word of what took place on board the ship till we had been six days in a storm. The barque had gone far out of her true course, and no one on board knew where we were. The masts lay in splints on the deck, a leak in the side of the ship let more in than the crew could pump out, and each one felt that ere long he would f...

The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom, Part Ii

By: Tobias Smollett

Just as he entered these mansions of misery, his ears were invaded with a hoarse and dreadful voice, exclaiming, ?You, Bess Beetle, score a couple of fresh eggs, a pennyworth of butter, and half a pint of mountain to the king; and stop credit till the bill is paid, He is now debtor for fifteen shillings and sixpence, and d?n me if I trust him one farthing more, if he was the best king in Christendom. And, d?ye hear, send Ragged-head with five pounds of potatoes for Major...
