Appreciations

By: Walter Horatio Pater

STYLE: SINCE all progress of mind consists for the most part in differentiation, in the resolution of an obscure and complex object into its component aspects, it is surely the stupidest of losses to confuse things which right reason has put asunder, to lose the sense of achieved distinctions, the distinction between poetry and prose, for instance, or, to speak more exactly, between the laws and characteristic excellences of verse and prose composition. On the other hand...

Les Fourberies de Scapin

By: Molière, 1622-1673

A vous dire la verite, il y a peu de choses qui me soient impossibles, quand je m'en veux meler. J'ai sans doute reçu du Ciel un genie assez beau pour toutes les fabriques de ces gentillesses d'esprit, de ces galanteries ingenieuses, a qui le vulgaire ignorant donne le nom de fourberies; et je puis dire sans vanite qu'on n'a guere vu d'homme qui fut plus habile ouvrier de ressorts et d'intrigues, qui ait acquis plus de gloire que moi dans ce noble metier. Mais, ma foi, l...

In the maturity of his manhood and the fulness of his literary popularity he withdrew it from print. This is one of the first English editions of his collected works in which the tale reappears. It is because the morality of it was condemned by his experienced judgment, that the author of ?Falkland? deliberately o...

An Oldfashioned Girl

By: Louisa May Alcott

Preface: AS a preface is the only place where an author can with propriety explain a purpose or apologize for shortcomings, I venture to avail myself of the privilege to make a statement for the benefit of my readers. As the first part of ?An Old?Fashioned Girl? was written in 1869, the demand for a sequel, in beseeching little letters that made refusal impossible, rendered it necessary to carry my heroine boldly forward some six or seven years into the future. The domes...
