The novel follows a boy from the Spessart named Simplicius in the Holy Roman Empire during the 30 Years War as he grows up in the depraved environment and joins the armies of both warring sides, switching allegiances several times. Born to an illiterate peasant family, he is separated from his home by foraging dragoons and is eventually adopted by a forest hermit. He is conscripted at a young age into service, and from there embarks on years of foraging, military triumph, wealth, prostitution, disease, travels to Russia, and countless other adventures.--Wikipedia

Underground Man

2010.08.28

Author: Gabriel Tarde

Language: English

Published: 1905

The sun dies, the world is frozen, and Miltiades comes to the rescue by suggesting a retirement into the interior of the planet, where warmth may be had from the internal fires. This suggestion is carried out, and we have new and wonderful conditions of life in galleries and tunnels--a better and less artificial life, the historian would have us believe. The whole idea is very cleverly sustained, and the author seizes his opportunities to laugh at existing social ideas, yet, at the same time, has many profound thoughts underneath his jests and irony.

Tom Sawyer's Comrade

Author: Mark Twain

Language: English

Published: 1884

In this book a number of dialects are used, to wit: the Missouri negro dialect; the extremest form of the backwoods Southwestern dialect; the ordinary "Pike County" dialect; and four modified varieties of this last. The shadings have not been done in a haphazard fashion, or by guesswork; but painstakingly, and with the trustworthy guidance and support of personal familiarity with these several forms of speech.I make this explanation for the reason that without it many readers would suppose that all these characters were trying to talk alike and not succeeding.

The Super-State

Author: Owen Gregory

Language: English

Published: 1918

This prophetic description of Germany in 1970 is full of grim humor; but it is more grim than humorous. By that time Germany has become entirely segregated from the rest of Europe and even to get there travelers have to cross a No Man's Land of five miles. Germany, isolated from the civilized world, continues on quite logical lines, her mania for the State and Liberty is never mentioned except by a few old men in lunatic asylums.

The Bending of a Twig

2009.08.15

Author: Desmond Coke

Language: English

Published: 1906

If this book had a sub-title, it would run, not "A Story of Shrewsbury Life," but "A Story and a Criticism." Its modest aim is, in fact, to level destructive satire at the conventional school story, and on its ruins to erect a structure rather nearer to real life.
