Hardy's first masterpiece, this 1874 novel bought vast acclaim upon ebook and is still one of the author's best-loved works.
The story of a passionate, self sustaining girl and her 3 suitors, it explores Hardy's trademark topics: thwarted love, the inevitability of destiny, and the encroachment of business society on rural lifestyles.
Treachery and betrayal are the order of the day in the course of the reign of King John of britain (1199-1216. )
After he's compelled to acknowledge the illegitimate son of his useless brother, King Richard I, King John reveals himself lower than siege through the French king, Philip.
Dealing with issues of royal legitimacy, succession, and the tenuous nature of diplomatic relationships, King John parallels matters prevelant in Shakespeare's personal society on the time.
Timon, later a misanthrope, is a prosperous and beneficiant Athenian gentleman. He hosts a wide dinner party, attended through approximately the entire major characters.
Timon provides away cash wastefully, and everybody desires to please him to get extra, with the exception of Apemantus, a churlish thinker whose cynicism Timon can't but take pleasure in. He accepts artwork from Poet and Painter, and a jewel from the Jeweller, yet via the top of Act 1, he has on condition that away to a different pal.
The Professor was once the 1st novel that Charlotte Brontë accomplished. Rejected through the writer who took at the paintings of her sisters in 1846--Anne's Agnes gray and Emily's Wuthering Heights--it remained unpublished until eventually 1857, years after Charlotte Brontë's demise.
Like Villette (1853), The Professor relies on her studies as a language pupil in Brussels in 1842. advised from the perspective of William Crimsworth, the one male narrator that she used, the paintings formulated a brand new aesthetic that wondered a number of the presuppositions of Victorian society.
Brontë's hero escapes from a humiliating clerkship in a Yorkshire mill to discover paintings as a instructor in Belgium, the place he falls in love with an impoverished student-teacher, who's probably the author's so much practical feminist heroine. The Professor endures this day as either a harbinger of Brontë's later novels and a compelling learn in its personal right.
"The heart and latter element of The Professor is nearly as good as i will write," proclaimed Brontë. "It comprises extra pith, extra substance, extra truth, in my judgment, than a lot of Jane Eyre".

Of Kipling Eliot wrote in 1941: He might almost be called the first citizen of India. And his relation to India determines that about him which is the most important thing about a man, his religious attitude. It is an attitude of comprehensive tolerance. He is not an unbeliever-on the contrary, he can accept all faiths: that of the Moslem, that of the Hindu, that of the Buddhist, Parsee or Jain, even (through the historical imagination) that of Mithra: if his understanding of Christianity is less affectionate, that is due to his Anglo-Saxon background-and no doubt he saw enough in India of clergy such as Mr.
In a sense, his answer is the book itself, for it is the best thing he ever wrote. IRVI~G IIOWE The Pleasures of Kim That sense of evil which for cultivated people has become a mark of wisdom and source of pride, indeed, the very sun of their sunless world, is not a frequent presence in the pages of Kim, and when it does appear it can rarely trouble us with either its violence or grasp. We are inclined these days to exalt the awareness of evil into a kind of appreciation. We find it hard to suppose that a serious writer could turn his back upon the malignity at the heart of things; we urge it as a criticism of writers like Emerson and Whitman that they arc weak in the awareness of evil, as if nature had denied them a necessary faculty.
But for the dynamic of the novel itself, for the inner development of Kim, it would not matter decisively. The Secret Service, rather than a secret underground, is what Kipling's experience made available to him at a fairly superficial plane of consciousness; it is a given of the world in which he grew up, the India of his youth, and it is not, one notes with gratitude, subjected to any quick "purification" by virtue of Kim's service to the lama. All that the Gamethe Secret Service and its prep-school hijinks-need really do is to embody the Wheel of Things, that terrestrial "illusion" which the first portion of the book has shown to be the substance of delight.
