Excerpt from Ireland the Outpost Ireland has lain in the path of great migrations, from Berber Africa, from the mouths of Frisian rivers, from the viks and fjords of the sterner northlands. From her own drowned valleys, the harbours that knew the ships of Gades and of Gaul, her people have moved westward and linked the Old world with the new. At times she catches the light that floods across from Europe, and adds to its brightness the ardent glow of her response. At times the seawmist gathers along her mountain-barriers, and she sinks back into the haze of the Atlantic, elusive' About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Happy Irish It is a climax, a coincidence, luminous with meaning for mankind. Ireland enters upon the strewn and trembling stage of British politics with a significance, not only for England, not only for the British Empire, but for all the foremost nations of the earth now te garding each other from the outposts of civilization, from the fortified and haunted frontiers of progress, with a dolorous apprehension. She does not arraign the ambitions of these civilized nations - many of whom learned the alphabet of their first pure culture from her own heroic sons - but she asks to disentangle herself from the confusions of an industrialism, the violence of a materialism, and the brutalizing ugliness of a false civilization, into which she has been dragged.

Excerpt from Stories by English Authors It would not become me to know precisely when I began to think William an ingrate, but I date his lapse from the evening when he brought me oysters. I detest oysters, and no one knew it better than William. He has agreed with me that he could not understand any gentleman's liking them. Between me and a certain member who smacks his lips twelve times to a dozen of them William knew I liked a screen to be placed until we had reached the soup, and yet he gave me the oysters and the other man my sardine. Both the other member and I called quickly for brandy and the head waiter. To do William justice, he shook, but never can I forget his audacious explanation.

Excerpt from The Years Between To the Seven Watchmen Seven watchmen sitting in a tower, Watching what had come upon mankind, Showed the Man the Glory and the Power, And bade him shape the Kingdom to his mind. 'All things on Earth your will shall win you.' ('Twas so their counsel ran) 'But the Kingdom - the Kingdom is within you, ' Said the Man's own mind to the Man. For time, and some time - As it was in the bitter years before So it shall be in the over-sweetened hour - That a man's mind is wont to tell him more Than Seven Watchmen sitting in a tower.

The Jungle Book (Classic Reprint)

This book contains the collection of Rudyard Kipling short stories known as The Jungle Book. The most famous of these are about Mowgli the wolf boy, and have been adapted for comics, stage, film and television many times. Mowgli's adventures in the forest and battles with the tiger Shere Khan are exciting and should be a part of any child's reading material. The other stories are shorter, but just as entertaining. Rikki-tikki-tavi, about a brave mongoose and his battle against snakes, is a particular favourite of many and The White Seal and Toomi of the Elephants are well loved and enjoyable too. After each story comes a poem or song about the same topic. These are highly moral stories, which have lead some to conclude that they were based on current events of the times, but there is no evidence of that from the author himself and they were probably written for his daughter. Rudyard Kipling knew a great deal about the animals of which he wrote and this comes through in the details of their lives in these tales. This book thoroughly deserves the devotion it receives from its fans. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The brutes assembled in twos and threes and drove me fran tic. A few days previously I had shot one loud-mouthed singer and suspended his carcass in terrorem about fifty yards from my tent-door, but his friends fell upon, fought for, and ultimately devoured the body and, as it seemed to me, sang their hymns of thanksgiving afterwards with renewed energy.

Homer in the Twentieth Century

Between World Literature and the Western Canon

Author: Barbara Graziosi,Emily Greenwood

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199298262

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 322

View: 4851

This collection of essays explores the crucial place of Homer in the shifting cultural landscape of the twentieth century. It argues that Homer was viewed both as the founding father of the Western literary canon and as sharing important features with poems, performances, and traditions which were often deemed neither literary nor Western: the epics of Yugoslavia and sub-Saharan Africa, the keening performances of Irish women, the spontaneous inventiveness of the Blues. The book contributes to current debates about the nature of the Western literary canon, the evolving notion of world literature, the relationship between orality and the written word, and the dialogue between texts across time and space. Homer in the Twentieth Century contends that the Homeric poems play an important role in shaping those debates and, conversely, that the experiences of the twentieth century open new avenues for the interpretation of Homer's much-travelled texts.
