Crime and Punishment

By: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

ON AN exceptionally hot evening early in July a young man came out of the garret in which he lodged in S. Place and walked slowly, as though in hesitation, towards K. bridge. He had successfully avoided meeting his landlady on the staircase. His garret was under the roof of a high, five-storied house and was more like a cupboard than a room. The landlady who provided him with garret, dinners, and attendance, lived on the floor below, and every time he went out he was obl...

Lord Jim

By: Joseph Conrad

When this novel first appeared in book form a notion got about that I had been bolted away with. Some reviewers maintained that the work starting as a short story had got beyond the writer's con- trol. One or two discovered internal evidence of the fact, which seemed to amuse them. They pointed out the limitations of the narrative form. They argued that no man could have been expected to talk all that time, and other men to listen so long. It was not, they said, very cre...

The Golden Bough

By: Sir James George Frazer

WHO does not know Turner's picture of the Golden Bough? The scene, suffused with the golden glow of imagination in which the divine mind of Turner steeped and transfigured even the fairest natural landscape, is a dream-like vision of the little woodland lake of Nemi— Diana's Mirror, as it was called by the ancients. No one who has seen that calm water, lapped in a green hollow of the Alban hills, can ever forget it. The two characteristic Italian villages which slumber o...

On broader lines he?s like those chappies who sit peering sadly over the marble battlements at the Pennsylvania Station in the place marked ?Inquiries.? You know the Johnnies I mean. You go up to them and say: ?When?s the next train for Melonsquashville, Tennessee?? and they reply, without stopping to think, ?Two-forty-three, tra...

Agnes Grey

By: Anne Brontë

CHAPTER I: - THE PARSONAGE ALL true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the reasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity, that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for he trouble of cracking the nut. Whether this be the case with my history or not, I am hardly competent to judge. I sometimes think it might prove useful to some, and entertaining to others; but the world may judge for itself. Shielded by my own obscurity, and b...
