Great Expectations (version 2)

By: Charles Dickens

Great Expectations is written in the first person and is virtually a fictional autobiography of “Pip” from his childhood, through often painful experiences, to adulthood.

The Red Badge of Courage

By: Stephen Crane

THE cold passed reluctantly from the earth, and the retiring fogs revealed an army stretched out on the hills, resting. As the landscape changed from brown to green, the army awakened, and began to tremble with eagerness at the noise of rumors. It cast its eyes upon the roads, which were growing from long troughs of liquid mud to proper thoroughfares. A river, ambertinted in the shadow of its banks, purled at the army's feet; and at night, when the stream had become of a...

The Devil's Pool

By: George Sand

Excerpt: WHEN I wrote The Devil?s Pool, the first of a series of pastoral tales which I meant to bring out together under the title of Tales of a Hemp?dresser, I had no system in view, and no design of introducing a revolution into literature. No one man has ever effected a revolution; for a revolution, especially in art, is an unconscious change which everybody has had a hand in. But this is not applicable to tales of rustic life, which have always existed, at all times...

The Golden Bough

By: James George Frazer

Preface. THE PRIMARY aim of this book is to explain the remarkable rule which regulated the succession to the priesthood of Diana at Aricia. When I first set myself to solve the problem more than thirty years ago, I thought that the solution could be propounded very briefly, but I soon found that to render it probable or even intelligible it was necessary to discuss certain more general questions, some of which had hardly been broached before. In successive editions the ...

Bram Stoker's Dracula

By: Bram Stoker

Excerpt: Buda-Pesth seems a wonderful place, from the glimpse which I got of it from the train and the little I could walk through the streets. I feared to go very far from the station, as we had arrived late and would start as near the correct time as possible.

My Man Jeeves

By: Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

LEAVE IT TO JEEVES. Jeeves?my man, you know?is really a most extraordinary chap. So capable. Honestly, I shouldn?t know what to do without him. 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...

Great Expectations

By: Charles Dickens

Excerpt: Chapter One. My father?s family name being Pirrip, and my Christian name Philip, my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip. So, I called myself Pip, and came to be called Pip. I give Pirrip as my father?s family name, on the authority of his tombstone and my sister?Mrs. Joe Gargery, who married the blacksmith. As I never saw my father or my mother, and never saw any likeness of either of them (for their days were long bef...

Les Miserables

By: Victor Hugo

PREFACE: So long as there shall exist, by virtue of law and custom, decrees of damnation pronounced by society, artificially creating hells amid the civilization of earth, and adding the element of human fate to divine destiny; so long as the three great problems of the century -- the degradation of man through pauperism, the corruption of woman through hunger, the crippling of children through lack of light -- are unsolved; so long as social asphyxia is possible in any ...

C'est un roman historique, social et philosophique dans lequel on retrouve les idéaux du romantisme et ceux de Victor Hugo concernant la nature humaine.
