The Divine Comedy

By: Alighieri, Dante, 1265-1321

CANTO I: IN the midway of this our mortal life, I found me in a gloomy wood, astray Gone from the path direct: and e'en to tell It were no easy task, how savage wild That forest, how robust and rough its growth, Which to remember only, my dismay Renews, in bitterness not far from death. Yet to discourse of what there good befell, All else will I relate discover'd there. How first I enter'd it I scarce can say, Such sleepy dullness in that instant weigh'd My senses down, ...

Korea Today

By: Jiang Zemin

Excerpt: The Workers? Party of Korea was founded on October 10, 56 years ago, with the Down-with-Imperialism Union, which was formed on October 17, 1926, as its historic roots. On the occasion of the founding anniversary, the Korean people look back emotionally upon the history of the Party. The road it has followed has often been a hard one. The recent years of the ?Arduous March? were a particularly difficult time in the history of the Party, almost unprecedented since its foundation.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

By: Oscar Wilde

CHAPTER I: The studio was filled with the rich odor of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn. From the corner of the divan of Persian saddle-bags on which he was lying, smoking, as usual, innumerable cigarettes, Lord Henry Wotton could just catch the gleam of the honey-sweet and honey-colored blossoms of the laburn...

The Constitutional History of England

By: F.W. Maitland

Economic Theory Literature

Preface: I have written a course of lectures in six months on Constitutional History. Do I publish it? No. The lectures written in six months, which Professor Maitland told the Cambridge Law Club would not be published, were delivered during the Michaelmas term of 1887 and the Lent term of 1888, and were specially designed for the needs of undergraduates of the University of Cambridge reading for the Law Tripos. The last word of the last lecture was written on April 7, 1...

A Little Tour in France

By: Henry James

We good Americans - I say it without presumption - are too apt to think that France is Paris, just as we are accused of being too apt to think that Paris is the celestial city. This is by no means the case, fortun- ately for those persons who take an interest in modern Gaul, and yet are still left vaguely unsatisfied by that epitome of civilization which stretches from the Arc de Triomphe to the Gymnase theatre. It had already been intimated to the author of these light ...

A Bundle of Letters

By: Henry James

My dear mother -- I have kept you posted as far as Tuesday week last, and, although my letter will not have reached you yet, I will begin another before my news accumulates too much. I am glad you show my letters round in the family, for I like them all to know what I am doing, and I can’t write to every one, though I try to answer all reasonable expectations. But there are a great many unreasonable ones, as I suppose you know -- not yours, dear mother, for I am bound to...

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

By: Victor Hugo

A few years ago, while visiting or, rather, rummaging about Notre-Dame, the author of this book found, in an obscure nook of one of the towers, the following word, engraved by hand upon the wall: -- These Greek capitals, black with age, and quite deeply graven in the stone, with I know not what signs peculiar to Gothic caligraphy imprinted upon their forms and upon their attitudes, as though with the purpose of revealing that it had been a hand of the Middle Ages which h...

America : A Prophecy

By: William Blake

Preludium: The shadowy Daughter of Urthona stood before red Orc, When fourteen suns had faintly journey'd o'er his dark abode: His food she brought in iron baskets, his drink in cups of iron. Crown'd with a helmet and dark hair the nameless Female stood; A quiver with its burning stores, a bow like that of night, When pestilence is shot from heaven — no other arms she need! Invulnerable tho' naked, save where clouds roll round her loins Their awful folds in the dark air:...

All for Love

By: Dryden, John, 1631-1700

The age of Elizabeth, memorable for so many reasons in the history of England, was especially brilliant in literature, and, within literature, in the drama. With some falling off in spontaneity, the impulse to great dramatic production lasted till the Long Parliament closed the theaters in 1642; and when they were reopened at the Restoration, in 1660, the stage only too faithfully reflected the debased moral tone of the court society of Charles II.

The Adventures of Gerard

By: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

PREFACE: I hope that some readers may possibly be interested in these little tales of the Napoleonic soldiers to the extent of following them up to the springs from which they flow. The age was rich in military material, some of it the most human and the most picturesque that I have ever read. Setting aside historical works or the biographies of the leaders there is a mass of evidence written by the actual fighting men themselves, which describes their feelings and their...
