Frankenstein : Or, The Modern Prometheus. By the Author of the Las...

By: Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Introduction: The Publishers of the Standard Novels, in selecting ?Frankenstein? for one of their series, expressed a wish that I should furnish them with some account of the origin of the story.

It is true that I am very averse to bringing myself forward in prin...

A Connecticut Yankee

By: Mark Twain

Preface: The ungentle laws and customs touched upon in this tale are historical, and the episodes which are used to illustrate them are also historical. It is not pretended that these laws and customs existed in England in the sixth century; no, it is only pretended that inasmuch as they existed in the English and other civilizations of far later times, it is safe to consider that it is no libel upon the sixth century to suppose them to have been in practice in that day ...

Thus I had occasion to spend some days in procuring the necessary passport and other official facilities for my journey. It happened just then that the Stage Society gave a performance of this little play. It opened ...

The Story of Mankind

By: Hendrik Van Loon

For the first time in my life I was confronted by the phenomenon of audible silence.
