A Son at the Front

A Son at the Front – Edith Wharton

Mrs. Wharton’s story is the simple one of John Campton, the great American painter, whose only son, born in France, is subject to military service. The father, his divorced wife, and her banking husband all interest themselves to keep the boy out of danger, but he eludes their care and while ostensibly on staff work he is really with his regiment at the front. He is wounded, recovers, goes back, is wounded again and returns to die. The theme of the novel is American participation in the war, dramatized by the conversion of John Campton from a position of indifferent neutrality at the outset to a conviction that no ‘civilized man could … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

Emily of New Moon

Emily of New Moon – Lucy Maud Montgomery

In the story little Emily Byrd Starr, aged eleven, has been left an orphan. We are in time to see the death of her father, Douglas Starr, an unsuccessful journalist, and to learn that though he had never been forgiven for having eloped with Juliet Murray, yet the Murray pride is such that the family will certainly provide for Juliet’s daughter. It is decided by the drawing of iots that she shall go to New Moon with two of her aunts. New Moon, called after the ship in which the Murrays sailed from the old country, had been built more than a century ago; the family had spread and, prospered, its tentacles Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

Washington and its Romance

Washington and its Romance – Thomas Nelson Page

The capitals of most countries are the especial pride of their people. It is not so with us—at least, it has not been so in the past. Happily, it appears as though this condition were changing. It has, indeed, ever appeared to me strange that Americans know so little of and care so little for the capital of their own country. Nature, prodigal of gracious slope and curve and tone, has endowed it with, perhaps, more charm than any other national capital—at least, than any large European capital—and its founders laid it off on a generous plan which has left the opportunity of furthering what Nature presented, in a way to appeal … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

Das wunderbare Land von Oz

Das wunderbare Land von Oz.

Diese zweite Oz-Geschichte aus der Feder von L. Frank Baum erzählt die weiteren Abenteuer der Vogelscheuche (die den Zauberer als Herrscher über Oz abgelöst hat) und des Blechmanns. Außerdem werden wir einigen entzückenden neuen Charakteren vorgestellt, darunter Jack Kürbiskopf, das Sägepferd und der Gump, die alle durch das magische Pulver des Lebens animiert wurden. Wir treffen auch Professor S. V. Wackelkäfer, G. A. (stark vergrößert und gut ausgebildet), der wegen seiner unglaublichen Gelehrsamkeit später königlicher Erzieher wird. Es gibt einige aufregende Momente, in denen die Vogelscheuche von einer Armee aufrührerischer Mädchen gestürzt wird, aber am Ende gelingt es Prinzessin Ozma, der rechtmäßigen Herrscherin von Oz, den Thron zu erklimmen.
