The Canterbury Tales

By: Chaucer, Geoffrey; Kline, Tony, translator

A collection of tales presented as part of a story-telling contest by a group of pilgrims as they travel together on a journey from Southwark to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. The prize for this contest is a free meal at the Tabard Inn at Southwark on their return. This is a modernized translation, retaining Chaucer's rhyme scheme, and close to the original, but eliminating archaisms which would require explanatory notes.

Sundara Kanda: Hanuman's Odyssey

By: BS Murthy

If Mahabharata's Bhagvad-Gita is taken as a philosophical guide, Ramayana's Sundara Kãnda is sought for spiritual solace; many believe that reading Sundara Kãnda or hearing it recited would remove all hurdles and usher in good tidings! Miracles apart, it's in the nature of Sundara Kãnda to inculcate fortitude and generate hope in one and all. After all, isn't it a depiction of how Hanuman goes about his errand against all odds! Again, won't it portray how Seetha, on the ...

Canto 33 - Genesis of Exile Seeing Seetha’s demeanour change Gladdened Hanuman’s heart no end. Folding his hands in reverence Approached he then Rama’s wife. Find thee grieving for some time What doth make thee feel so sad? Thy eyes that are all welled up Make they clear that thou are hurt. From thy bearing one can see Come that thou from noble stock.

A Vocabulary of Words in the Hawaiian Language

By: Lahainaluna

Perhaps the Sandwich Island’s Mission owes an apology to the literary world for having reduced to writing a language of such variety and extent as the Hawaiian, and published so many books on it, without having given any account either of the genius, structure or peculiarities of the language. Many reasons, however, exist why so little has been done in this respect. The want of leisure in any member of the Mission for setting down to labors purely literary, is one reason...
