Much Ado About Peter

Much Ado About Peter – Jean Webster

The reader that would have the delightful experience of falling- in love with the Carters’ serving-maid must read ‘Much Ado About Peter’ by Jean Webster. And, incidentally, she who would rather not fall in love with the Carters’ groom had better avoid this collection of short stories about Annie O’Reilly and Peter Malone. These ten tales of life from the viewpoint of those below stairs all have the same hero and heroine, and the fact that the conclusion brings them to the usual fate of lovers gives the book the semblance of a novel. Besides Annie and Peter, the gardener Vittorio, late of the Bersaglieri Corps, who fought Menelek in Abyssinia, makes a … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

The Four Pools Mystery

The Four Pools Mystery – Jean Webster

Here is one of the best, if not the best, stories of mystery and tragedy of the 1900 years. To ‘Four-Pools,’ a quiet stock-farm set in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, comes a worn-out New York lawyer for a vacation. He is a witness of many curious things and of the final tragedy. The unraveling of the mysteries which follow each other with a cumulative interest is due to a clever New York newspaper chap. It’s an unusual and stirring story, in which the portrayal of life on a Southern plantation and the horror and fear roused in the negroes by what they believed manifestations of the ancestral ‘ha’nt’ is clearly and vividly done. … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

Charles Dickens in America

Charles Dickens in America – William Glyde Wilkins

In reading ‘American Notes’ and Dickens’s letters from America, Mr. Wilkins was struck by two things: the almost bitter severity of his criticism of the American newspapers and his views on the subject of international copyright. To the end of satisfying himself of the justice of these opinions, he collected extracts from the press of almost every city visited by the distinguished novelist. But the task so specifically begun was soon seen to have a much broader significance. If Americans and Englishmen were interested through the ‘American Notes’ to get a glimpse of the United States, it is safe to say that they would be still more interested through the popular press … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

America’s National Game

America’s National Game – Albert G. Spalding

This book is in great demand by baseball enthusiasts. Having been connected with every department of the game from player to magnate, Mr. Spalding has contributed a very important work to the game’s history. As the invincible pitcher of the Boston Club, previous to the formation of the National League, his book of so many pages is an interesting record of events dating from the beginning of the great American pastime. It is not exactly a history of the game, but deals largely with incidents during the author’s career, who was a player in the late 1860s and early 1870s, and helped organize the National League in 1876. One chapter, devoted to sundry … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

Goethe’s Literary Essays

Goethe’s Literary Essays – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Professor Spingarn has done students of literature a real favor; for he has gathered into a single and well-made volume, golden pages from one of the great masters of literature. As divergent-minded judges as Carlyle, Matthew Arnold and Sainte-Beuve acclaimed Goethe the supreme literary critic of all time and, whatever might be said against so superlative an opinion, certainly Goethe’s many-sidedness, his undoubted genius, and his keen insight all conspired to give his judgments on literature a value too great to be ignored. All phases of his critical activity are represented in this excellent volume, which is the work of several translators, all of high standard. Goethe was keenly interested in French … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

West-Eastern Divan

West-Eastern Divan – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This volume stands for the huge task of Dowden’s middle life-the translation of Goethe’s ‘West-Eastern Divan.’ This is a poem, as Mrs. Dowden observes in the foreword, that is known to few English readers. It is the fruit of Goethe’s Indian Summer, the last word of his cheerful and composed philosophy of life. It was written between 1814 and 1819 and was inspired not only by Goethe’s correspondence with Marianne von Willemer, but also by the von Hammer’s translation of Hafez’ poems. Speaking of translations, Mr. Dowden’s translation is overwhelmingly good. No man is so hard to translate as Goethe, and certainly no English writer has succeeded with him better – if as … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...
