Trans la Spegulo Kaj Kion Alico Trovis Tie

By: Lewis Carroll

Car la sakproblemo, donita en antaua pago, perpleksigis kelkajn miajn legantojn, eble estas dezirinde klarigi ke gi estas korekte ellaborita, rilate al la movigoj . La alternado de Ruga kaj Blanka eble ne estas tute precize observata, kaj la “arokigo” de la tri Reginoj nur signifas ke ili eniris la palacon: sed la “sak!” al la Blanka Rego je movigo 6, la kaptigo de la Ruga Kavaliro je movigo 7, kaj la fina “mato” de la Ruga Rego, trovigos, se oni provos repr...

Pupil, The

By: Henry James

Pemberton, a young American with an Oxford education and out of money, takes a job tutoring Morgan Moreen, the 12-year old son of an American couple living in Europe in a style not quite matched by their income.

Morgan, who is highly intelligent, is also precocio...

Aunt Jane's Hero

By: Elizabeth Prentiss

Aunt Jane is a good and loving woman, important to everyone except herself, always willing to give good advice.

Beside aunt Jane and her hero, there is quite a large cast of other unforgettable characters who show us a lot of important things. (Summary by Stav Nisser.)

Priester und Detektiv (Pater Brown Geschichten)

By: G. K. Chesterton

Pater Brown ist ein englischer katholischer Pfarrer, der als Hobby Kriminalfälle löst. Dies gelingt ihm, indem er sich in den Täter hineinversetzt, dabei das Verbrechen selbst begeht, wie er sagt. Dabei ist er aber weniger daran interessiert, Verbrecher der irdischen Gerechtigkeit auszuliefern, sondern er will sie zu Gott führen; eine freiwillige Beichte des Täters genügt ihm. Dabei spielt es für ihn keine Rolle, welches Amt diese Person bekleidet. (Zusammenfassung von Wikipedia)

American Senator, The

By: Anthony Trollope

The American Senator is a novel written in 1875 by Anthony Trollope. Although not one of Trollope's better-known works, it is notable for its depictions of rural English life and for its many detailed fox hunting scenes. In its anti-heroine, Arabella Trefoil, it presents a scathing but ultimately sympathetic portrayal of a woman who has abandoned virtually all scruples in her quest for a husband. Through the eponymous Senator, Trollope offers comments on the irrational a...

Mayor of Casterbridge, The (version 2)

By: Thomas Hardy

Irritated and drunken, an itinerant farm-worker sells his wife and child to a stranger. Thus begins The Mayor of Casterbridge, set in rural and small-town England in the mid-1800s. In the original subtitle, Hardy called this the story of a man of character, and the central character, Michael Henchard, is one of English fiction's greatest creations. Henchard is deeply developed as a realistic character, but also larger-than-life in the manner of a Greek or Shakespearean t...

Anything once

American Fairy Tales

By: L. Frank Baum

This collection of fantasy stories was originally serialized in regional newspapers, prior to being published as a complete volume. The stories, as critics have noted, lack the high-fantasy aspect of the best of Baum's work, in Oz or out. With ironic or nonsensical morals attached to their ends, their tone is more satirical, glib, and tongue-in-cheek than is usual in children's stories; the serialization in newspapers for adult readers was appropriate for the materials. ...

Eros and Psyche

By: Robert Bridges

Bridges' Eros and Psyche retells the Eros (= Cupid) and Psyche myth first recorded by Lucius Apuleius in his book The Golden Ass. The poem is divided into twelve cantos - one for each of the twelve months of the year - which gives the poem a certain, almost pastoral feel. The number of stanzas in each canto equals the number of days in that month: so the first canto March has 31 stanzas, the second canto April has 30 stanzas, and so on. Each stanza is a septet (ie compri...

WTF! This is a Liberal Utopia!

By: Frank B. Thompson, III

Audiobook (Part 1) available - fbthompson3.com What would America look like in 2050, if the liberals ultimately prevail? Pushing discourse down to the same high-sounding, muddled thinking of the geniuses on 'the left;' through vapid, touchy-feely, non-erudite, irrational conclusions and illogical, logical sounding arguments. The book the publishing houses would never let see the light of day.

The year is 2020 when Professor Felix Schwartz, your typical, garden variety, liberal college professor, steps out in front of a Mack truck and the lights go out. Thirty years pass by, all the while Schwartz remains a walking vegetable and ward of the state. By 2050 the country has gone through some changes thanks to a dramatic shift in the makeup in the country's populace giving liberals (referred to as assclowns, moonbats, goofnads, or asshats) control over Washing...
