Great Expectations

By: Charles Dickens

Excerpt: Chapter One. My father?s family name being Pirrip, and my Christian name Philip, my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip.

As I never saw my father or my mother, and never saw any likeness of either of them (for their days were long bef...

White Fang

By: Jack London

Excerpt: Chapter One. THE TRAIL OF THE MEAT. Dark spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway. The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean towards each other, black and ominous, in the fading light. A vast silence reigned over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness. There was a hint in it of laughter,...

On Being Found Out

By: William Makepeace Thackeray

The Dynamiter

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Excerpt: TO MESSRS, COLE AND COX, POLICE OFFICERS. Gentlemen, in the volume now in your hands, the authors have touched upon that ugly devil of crime, with which it is your glory to have contended. It was a waste of ink to do so in a serious spirit. Let us dedicate our horror to acts of a more mingled strain, where crime preserves some features of nobility, and where reason and humanity can still relish the temptation. Horror, in this case, is due to Mr. Parnell: he sits...

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Excerpt: Story of the Door. Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner fac...

Pyle, Howard Men of Iron

By: Howard Pyle

Excerpt: THE YEAR 1400 opened with more than usual peacefulness in England. Only a few months before, Richard II weak, wicked, and treacherous had been dethroned, and Henry IV declared King in his stead. But it was only a seeming peacefulness, lasting but for a little while; for though King Henry proved himself a just and a merciful man as justice and mercy went with the men of iron of those days and though he did not care to shed blood needlessly, there were many noble ...
