"Paradise Lost". In addition to its imaginative use of language, the poem features a powerful and sympathetic portrait of Lucifer, the rebel angel who frequently outshines his moral superiors. With Milton's deft use of irony, the devil makes evil appear good, just as satanic practices may seem attractive at first glance. "Paradise Lost" has exercised enormous influence on generations of artists and their works, ranging from the Romantic poets William Blake and Percy Bysshe Shelley to Joseph Haydn's oratorio "The Creation" and J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings".

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche - Beyond Good and Evil artwork Beyond Good and Evil

Genre: Philosophy
Publish Date: 30 December 1899
Publisher: Public Domain
Seller: Public Domain

Beyond Good and Evil is a book by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting Judeo-Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectivistic nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual. In it he exposes the deficiencies of those usually called "philosophers" and identifies the qualities of the "new philosophers" imagination, self-assertion, danger, originality, and the "creation of values".

The book as modern biology teaches us to believe, is nothing more than the latest, highest, and most involved exemplification, in the human race, of that almost universal selective process. In our own species, the selective process is marked by all the features common to selection throughout the whole animal kingdom; but it is also, as might be expected, far more specialized, far more individualized, far more cognizant of personal traits and minor peculiarities. What we all fall in love with, then, as a race, is in most cases efficiency and ability.

The Wars of the Jews (or The History of the Destruction of Jerusalem, or as it usually appears in modern English translations, The Jewish War - original title: Phlauiou Iôsêpou historia Ioudaïkou polemou pros Rhômaious bibliona) is a book written by the 1st century Jewish historian Josephus. It is a description of Jewish history from the capture of Jerusalem by the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes in 164 BC to the fall and destruction of Jerusalem in the First Jewish-Roman War in AD 70. The book was written about 75, originally in Josephus's "paternal tongue", probably Aramaic, though this version has not survived. It was later translated into Greek, probably under the supervision of Josephus himself.

Quand il commença cette Physiologie, Claude suivait déjà cette carrière d'homme très malheureux en amour, qui est celle de quelques jeunes gens à Paris. Il avait, certes, d'excellentes raisons pour ne pas croire à la fidélité de sa maîtresse, cette Colette Rigaud qu'il a trop affichée pour que ce soit une indiscrétion de la nommer. Mais, à force d'en parler, il était devenu un virtuose, presque un dilettante de sa propre infortune, au point qu'il eût été fort embarrassé si elle lui avait offert de l'aimer uniquement, fidèlement, et si elle avait tenu parole.

Le caractère commun de toute la race gallique, dit Strabon d'après le philosophe Posidonius, c'est qu'elle est irritable et folle de guerre, prompte au combat, du reste simple et sans malignité. Si on les irrite, ils marchent ensemble droit à l'ennemi, et l'attaquent de front, sans s'informer d'autre chose. Aussi, par la ruse, on en vient aisément à bout; on les attire au combat quand on veut, où l'on veut, peu importent les motifs; ils sont toujours prêts, n'eussent-ils d'autre arme que leur force et leur audace. Toutefois, par la persuasion, ils se laissent amener sans peine aux choses utiles; ils sont susceptibles de culture et d'instruction littéraire. Forts de leur haute taille et de leur nombre, ils s'assemblent aisément en grande foule, simples qu'ils sont et spontanés, prenant volontiers en main la cause de celui qu'on opprime'. Tel est le premier regard de la philosophie sur la plus sympathique et la plus perfectible des races humaines. Le génie de ces Galls ou Celtes n'est d'abord autre chose que mouvement, attaque et conquête; c'est par la guerre que se mêlent et se rapprochent les nations antiques. Peuple de guerre et de bruit, ils courent le monde l'épée à la main, moins, ce semble, par avidité que par un vague et vain désir de voir, de savoir, d'agir; brisant, détruisant, faute de pouvoir produire encore. Ce sont les enfants du monde naissant; de grands corps mous, blancs et blonds; de l'élan, peu de force et d'haleine; jovialité féroce, espoir immense. Vains, n'ayant rien encore rencontré qui tînt devant eux, ils voulurent aller voir ce que c'était que cet Alexandre, ce conquérant de l'Asie, devant la face duquel les rois s'évanouissaient d'effroi[5]. Que craignez-vous? leur demanda l'homme terrible. Que le ciel ne tombe, dirent-ils; il n'en eut pas d'autre réponse. Le ciel lui-même ne les effrayait guère; ils lui lançaient des flèches quand il tonnait. Si l'Océan même se débordait et venait à eux, ils ne refusaient pas le combat, et marchaient à lui l'épée à la main. C'était leur point d'honneur de ne jamais reculer; ils s'obstinaient souvent à rester sous un toit embrasé. Aucune nation ne faisait meilleur marché de sa vie. On en voyait qui, pour quelque argent, pour un peu de vin, s'engageaient à mourir; ils montaient sur une estrade, distribuaient à leurs amis le vin ou l'argent, se couchaient sur leurs boucliers, et tendaient la gorge.

Le Dernier Jour d’un condamné est un roman de Victor Hugo publié en 1829 chez Charles Gosselin, qui constitue un réquisitoire politique pour l’abolition de la peine de mort. Le roman se présente comme le journal qu'un condamné à mort écrit durant les vingt-quatre dernières heures de son existence dans lequel il relate ce qu'il a vécu depuis le début de son procès jusqu'au moment de son exécution, soit environ six semaines de sa vie. Ce récit, long monologue intérieur, est entrecoupé de réflexions angoissées et de souvenirs de son autre vie, la « vie d’avant ». Le lecteur ne connaît ni le nom de cet homme, ni ce qu'il a fait pour être condamné, mis à part la phrase : « moi, misérable qui ai commis un véritable crime, qui ai versé du sang ! ». L’œuvre se présente comme un témoignage brut, à la fois sur l’angoisse du condamné à mort et ses dernières pensées, les souffrances quotidiennes morales et physiques qu'il subit et sur les conditions de vie des prisonniers, par exemple dans la scène du ferrage des forçats. Il exprime ses sentiments sur sa vie antérieure et ses états d’âme…

I have tried to follow as closely as possible the original, and to give the flavour of the text that Hobbes himself proof read, but the following differences were unavoidable. Hobbes used capitals and italics very extensively, for emphasis, for proper names, for quotations, and sometimes, it seems, just because. The original has very extensive margin notes, which are used to show where he introduces the definitions of words and concepts, to give in short the subject that a paragraph or section is dealing with, and to give references to his quotations, largely but not exclusively biblical.

Described by William Faulkner as the best novel ever written and by Fyodor Dostoevsky as “flawless”, Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair between the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the dashing officer, Count Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and thereby exposes herself to the hypocrisies of society. Set against a vast and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's seven major characters create a dynamic imbalance, playing out the contrasts of city and country life and all the variations on love and family happiness.

Genre: Literary
Publish Date: 31 August 2014

Seller: Public Domain

In 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned". That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's--and his country's--most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. And one fine morning--" Gatsby's rise to glory and eventual fall from grace becomes a kind of cautionary tale about the American Dream. It's also a love story, of sorts, the narrative of Gatsby's quixotic passion for Daisy Buchanan. The pair meet five years before the novel begins, when Daisy is a legendary young Louisville beauty and Gatsby an impoverished officer. They fall in love, but while Gatsby serves overseas, Daisy marries the brutal, bullying, but extremely rich Tom Buchanan. After the war, Gatsby devotes himself blindly to the pursuit of wealth by whatever means--and to the pursuit of Daisy, which amounts to the same thing. "Her voice is full of money", Gatsby says admiringly, in one of the novel's more famous descriptions. His millions made, Gatsby buys a mansion across Long Island Sound from Daisy's patrician East Egg address, throws lavish parties, and waits for her to appear. When she does, events unfold with all the tragic inevitability of a Greek drama, with detached, cynical neighbor Nick Carraway acting as chorus throughout. Spare, elegantly plotted, and written in crystalline prose, The Great Gatsby is as perfectly satisfying as the best kind of poem.

On a cherché à établir comme un axiome que la vie d'un homme de lettres était tout entière dans ses écrits. Il me semble au contraire que la biographie des écrivains doit être l'histoire raisonnée de leurs diverses sensations et de la contradiction de leur conduite avec leurs principes avoués. Si l'on excepte les Éloges des savants par Fontenelle, d'Alembert et Cuvier, presque toutes les notices de ce genre sont moins une analyse du génie et du caractère des hommes célèbres, qu'une liste exacte de leurs ouvrages; cependant, par l'influence même que ces productions ont eue sur leur siècle, [ii] les détails sur la vie privée de leurs auteurs rentrent dans le domaine de l'histoire; et l'histoire doit être moins la connaissance des faits, qu'une étude approfondie du cœur de l'homme. Les actions des héros qu'on se plaît à mettre sous nos yeux ne sont-elles pas moins propres à atteindre ce but, que l'exemple des vices ou des vertus dans les hommes qui ont prétendu enseigner la sagesse? Dans les premiers, une action d'éclat n'est souvent que l'élan d'un esprit exalté, que l'exécution rapide d'un dessein extraordinaire et spontané; dans les seconds, tout est le fruit d'une méditation soutenue: la vertu marque le but, la persévérance y conduit.

Norwood Penrose Hallowell was born in Philadelphia April 13, 1839. He inherited the tradition of the Quakers and grew to manhood in a strong anti-slavery atmosphere. The home of his father, Morris L. Hallowell—the "House called Beautiful", in the phrase of Oliver Wendell Holmes—was a haven of rest and refreshment for wounded soldiers of the Union Army, and hither also, after the assault upon him in the Senate, Charles Sumner had come for succor and peace. Three brothers in one way or another served the cause of the Union, one of them, Edward N. Hallowell, succeeding Robert Gould Shaw in the Command of the Fifty-Fourth Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers. Norwood Penrose Hallowell himself, a natural leader of men, was Harvard class orator in 1861; twenty-five years later he was the marshal of his class; and in 1896 he delivered the Memorial Day address in Sanders Theater.

This is a contemperary fiction story. The first thought which steals into one's mind is a fearful one: the fear of being old-fashioned. I mean by that a sudden anxiety lest one should find oneself reproducing all the ridiculous behaviour of which writers of romance and melodrama never fail to make their unfortunate heroes guilty when they find themselves immured in caves, grottoes, excavations, caverns, or tombs. "At the moment of my fall, even while I was so rapidly covering the space which separated me from the soil of the Catacombs, my presence of mind did not forsake me. I was aware that I was falling into those thousandyear-old subways which interlace their innumerable and capricious windings under the soil of Paris. The next thing I was aware of was a slight and painful numbness which followed my recovery from the insensibility into which I had been plunged by the inevitable shock.

Mysterious Phileas Fogg is a cool customer. A man of the most repetitious and punctual habit – with no apparent sense of adventure whatsoever – he gambles his considerable fortune that he can complete a journey around the world in just 80 days… immediately after a newspaper calculates the feat as just barely possible. With his excitable French manservant in tow, Fogg undertakes the exercise immediately, with no preparations, trusting that his traveling funds will make up for delays along the way. But unbeknownst to him, British police are desperately seeking to arrest him for the theft of a huge sum by someone who resembles him, and they will track him around the world, if necessary, to apprehend him. This is an adventure novel of the first water, with wholly unexpected perils, hair-breadth escapes, brilliant solutions to insoluble problems, and even a love story. And can this be – That he returns to London just five minutes too late to win his wager and retain his fortune.

There have been many painful crises since the impatient vanity of South Carolina hurried ten prosperous Commonwealths into a crime whose assured retribution was to leave them either at the mercy of the nation they had wronged, or of the anarchy they had summoned but could not control, when no thoughtful American opened his morning paper without dreading to find that he had no longer a country to love and honor. Whatever the result of the convulsion whose first shocks were beginning to be felt, there would still be enough square miles of earth for elbow-room; but that ineffable sentiment made up of memory and hope, of instinct and tradition, which swells every man’s heart and shapes his thought, though perhaps never present to his consciousness, would be gone from it, leaving it common earth and nothing more. Men might gather rich crops from it, but that ideal harvest of priceless associations would be reaped no longer; that fine virtue which sent up messages of courage and security from every sod of it would have evaporated beyond recall. We should be irrevocably cut off from our past, and be forced to splice the ragged ends of our lives upon whatever new conditions chance might leave dangling for us.

Il y avait un roi qui s'appelait Bénin; tout le monde l'aimait, parce qu'il était bon; les méchants le craignaient, parce qu'il était juste. Sa femme, la reine Doucette, était aussi bonne que lui. Ils avaient une petite princesse qui s'appelait Blondine à cause de ses magnifiques cheveux, blonds, et qui était bonne et charmante comme son papa le roi et comme sa maman la reine. Malheureusement la reine mourut peu de mois après la naissance de Blondine, et le roi pleura beaucoup et longtemps. Blondine était trop petite pour comprendre que sa maman était morte: elle ne pleura donc pas et continua à rire, à jouer, à téter et à dormir paisiblement. Le roi aimait tendrement Blondine, et Blondine aimait le roi plus que personne au monde. Le roi lui donnait les plus beaux joujoux, les meilleurs bonbons, les plus délicieux fruits. Blondine était très heureuse.
