The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

2010.05.11

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.

Specimens of German Romance, Vol. II

Author: E.T.A. Hoffmann

Language: English

Published: 1826




The ''Genius''

2010.03.30

(image)

Author: Theodore Dreiser

Language: English

Published: 1915

The insistent theme of Mr. Dreiser's work is desire, perennial, unquenchable. No matter how badly Mr. Dreiser might do his work, he would be significant as the American novelist who has most felt this subterranean current of life. Many novelists have seen this current as a mere abyss of sin from which the soul is to be dragged to the high ground of moral purpose and redemption, but this will not quite do. The great interpreters see life as a struggle between this desire and the organized machinery of existence, but they are not eager, as we are, to cover up and belittle the desire.

A Tale of City Life

Author: Talbot Baines Reed

Language: English

Published: 1900

This book is not so much aimed at schoolboys as most of this author's books, as at the young adult just starting out in life. For the story is a warning about the mistakes a young man of good will might make in trying to find employment during hard times.




Candide

2006.11.28

(image)

(English Translation with Introduction)

Author: Voltaire

Language: English

Published: 1759

Ever since 1759, when Voltaire wrote "Candide" in ridicule of the notion that this is the best of all possible worlds, this world has been a gayer place for readers. Voltaire wrote it in three days, and five or six generations have found that its laughter does not grow old. With an introduction by Philip Littlell.

Candide

2005.05.15

(English translation)

Author: Voltaire

Language: English

Published: 1759

Widely considered to be one of the most significant works of the Western canon, Voltaire's novel tells the tale of its naive protagonist Candide, taught to believe in optimism. Candide undergoes a series of extraordinary hardships, parodying many adventure and romance cliches.

This tale of a priest's wartime affair with a young nurse has been described as "an astounding novel, the most delicate, the most beautiful, and the most outspoken love story of modern fiction."
