Types of Children's Literature; A Collection of the World's Best L...

By: Walter Barnes

Preface: This collection of specimens of children?s literature has evolved itself naturally and, as it were, inevitably out of the editor?s experience in teaching classes in children?s literature in normal school and college, and it is published in the belief that other teachers of this subject find the same need of such a book that the editor has experienced. For it is obvious that if we are to conduct classes in children?s literature either for general culture or for s...

History of the French Revolution from 1789 to 1814

By: F. A. M. Mignet

Of the great incidents of History, none has attracted more attention or proved more difficult of interpretation than the French Revolution. The ultimate significance of other striking events and their place in the development of mankind can be readily estimated. It is clear enough that the barbarian invasions marked the death of the classical world, already mortally wounded by the rise of Christianity. It is clear enough that the Renaissance emancipated the human intelle...

Love-Letters between a Nobleman and His Sister

By: Aphra Behn

In the time of the rebellion of the true Protestant Huguenot in Paris, under the conduct of the Prince of Conde (whom we will call Cesario) many illustrious persons were drawn into the association, amongst which there was one, whose quality and fortune (joined with his youth and beauty) rendered him more elevated in the esteem of the gay part of the world than most of that age. In his tender years (unhappily enough) he chanced to fall in love with a lady, whom we will ca...

Ballad Book

By: Katherine Lee Bates

Probably no teacher of English literature in our schools or colleges would gainsay the statement that the chief aim of such instruction is to awaken in the student a genuine love and enthusiasm for the higher forms of prose, and more especially for poetry. For love is the surest guarantee of extended and independent study, and we teachers are the first to admit that the class-room is but the vestibule to education. So in beginning the critical study of English poetry it ...

Three Dramas

By: Bjørnstjerne Martinius Bjørnson

The three plays here presented were the outcome of a period when Bjornson?s views on many topics were undergoing a drastic revision and he was abandoning much of his previous orthodoxy in many directions. Two of them were written during, and one immediately after, a three years? absence from Norway?years spent almost entirely in southern Europe. [Note: Further details respecting Bjornson?s life will be found in the Introduction to Three Comedies by Bjornson, published in...

The Child and Childhood in Folk-Thought Studies of the Activities ...

By: Alexander F. Chamberlain

The present volume is an elaboration and amplification of lectures on ?The Child in Folk-Thought,? delivered by the writer at the summer school held at Clark University in 1894. In connection with the interesting topic of ?Child-Study? which now engages so much the attention of teachers and parents, an attempt is here made to indicate some of the chief child-activities among primitive peoples and to point out in some respects their survivals in the social institutions an...

Louis Agassiz : His Life and Correspondence

By: Louis Agassiz

Preface: I am aware that this book has neither the fullness of personal narrative, nor the closeness of scientific analysis, which its too comprehensive title might lead the reader to expect. A word of explanation is therefore needed. I thought little at first of the general public, when I began to weave together in narrative form the facts, letters, and journals contained in this volume. My chief object was to prevent the dispersion and final loss of scattered papers wh...

Anarchism and Other Essays

By: Emma Goldman

Among the men and women prominent in the public life of America there are but few whose names are mentioned as often as that of Emma Goldman. Yet the real Emma Goldman is almost quite unknown. The sensational press has surrounded her name with so much misrepresentation and slander, it would seem almost a miracle that, in spite of this web of calumny, the truth breaks through and a better appreciation of this much maligned idealist begins to manifest itself. There is but ...

La Vendee

By: Anthony Trollope

THE POITEVINS. The history of France in 1792 has been too fully written, and too generally read to leave the novelist any excuse for describing the state of Paris at the close of the summer of that year. It is known to every one that the palace of Louis XVI was sacked on the 10th of August. That he himself with his family took refuge in the National Assembly, and that he was taken thence to the prison of the Temple. The doings on the fatal 10th of August, and the few fol...

Title : Fielding (English Men of Letters Series)

By: Austin Dobson

EARLY YEARS?FIRST PLAYS. Like his contemporary Smollett, Henry Fielding came of an ancient family, and might, in his Horatian moods, have traced his origin to Inachus. The lineage of the house of Denbigh, as given in Burke, fully justifies the splendid but sufficiently quoted eulogy of Gibbon. From that first Jeffrey of Hapsburgh, who came to England, temp. Henry III., and assumed the name of Fieldeng, or Filding, ?from his father?s pretensions to the dominions of Lauffe...

The World English Bible : Jude

Jude (or, Judah), a servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ: 001:002 Mercy to you and peace and love be multiplied. 001:003 Beloved, while I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I was constrained to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 001:004 For there are certain men...

England under the Tudors

By: Arthur D. Innes

In England, as in France and Germany, the main characteristic of the last twenty years, from the point of view of the student of history, has been that new material has been accumulating much faster than it can be assimilated or absorbed. The standard histories of the last generation need to be revised, or even to be put aside as obsolete, in the light of the new information that is coming in so rapidly and in such vast bulk. But the students and researchers of to-day ha...

The Children's Book of Christmas Stories

By: Don Dickinson; Ada M. Skinner

Clear away! There was nothing they wouldn?t have cleared away, or couldn?t have cleared away with old Fezziwig looking on. It was done in a minute. Every movable was packed off, as if it were dismissed from public life forevermore; the floor was swept and watered, the lamps were trimmed, fuel was heaped upon the fire; and the warehouse was as snug, and warm, and dry, and bright a ballroom as you would desire to see on a winter?s night.

The Green Fairy Book

By: Andrew Lang

This is the third, and probably the last, of the Fairy Books of many colors. First there was the Blue Fairy Book; then, children, you asked for more, and we made up the Red Fairy Book; and, when you wanted more still, the Green Fairy Book was put together. The stories in all the books are borrowed from many countries; some are French, some German, some Russian, some Italian, some Scottish, some English, one Chinese. However much these nations differ about trifles, they a...

Formation of the Union 1750-1829

By: Albert Bushnell Hart, Ph. D.

The second volume of the EPOCHS OF AMERICAN HISTORY aims to follow out the principles laid down for ?THE COLONIES,??the study of causes rather than of events, the development of the American nation out of scattered and inharmonious colonies. The throwing off of English control, the growth out of narrow political conditions, the struggle against foreign domination, and the extension of popular government, are all parts of the uninterrupted process of the Formation of the Union.
