Harriet and the Piper, Vol. Xi

By: Kathleen Norris

Richard Carter had called the place ?Crownlands,? not to please himself, or even his wife. But it was to his mother?s newly born family pride that the idea of being the Carters of Crownlands made its appeal. The estate, when he bought it, had belonged to ...

Romanzero

By: Heinrich Heine

Rhampsenit Als der Konig Rhampsenit Eintrat in die goldne Halle Seiner Tochter, lachte diese, Lachten ihre Zofen alle. Auch die Schwarzen, die Eunuchen, Stimmten lachend ein, es lachten Selbst die Mumien, selbst die Sphinxe, Dab sie schier zu bersten dachten. Die Prinzessin sprach: Ich glaubte Schon den Schatzdieb zu erfassen, Der hat aber einen toten Arm in meiner Hand gelassen.

Lucretia, Vol. 6

By: Edward Bulwer Lytton

RETROSPECT. We have now arrived at that stage in this history when it is necessary to look back on the interval in Lucretia?s life, between the death of Dalibard, and her reintroduction in the second portion of our tale. One day, without previous notice or warning, Lucretia arrived at William Mainwaring?s house; she was in the deep weeds of widowhood, and that garb of mourning sufficed to add Susan?s tenderest commiseration to the warmth of her affectionate welcome. Lucr...

George Cruikshank

By: William Makepeace Thackeray

Reprinted from the Westminster Review for June, 1840. (No 66.) Accusations of ingratitude, and just accusations no doubt, are made against every inhabitant of this wicked world, and the fact is, that a man who is ceaselessly engaged in its trouble and turmoil, borne hither and thither upon the fierce waves of the crowd, bustling, shifting, struggling to keep himself somewhat above water?fighting for reputation, or more likely for bread, and ceaselessly occupied to-day wi...

Abbeychurch

Rechauffes are proverbially dangerous, but everyone runs into them sooner or later, and the world has done me the kindness so often to inquire after my first crude attempt, that after it has lain for many years ?out of print,? I have ventured to launch it once more?imperfections and all?though it is guilty of the error of pointing rather to a transient phase of difficulty than to a general principle.

The Tone of Time

By: Henry James

I was too pleased with what it struck me that, as an old, old friend, I had done for her, not to go to her that very afternoon with the news. I knew she worked late, as in general I also did; but I sacrificed for her sake a good hour of the February daylight. She was in her studio, as I had believed she would be, where her card ('Mary J. Tredick' — not Mary Jane, but Mary Juliana) was manfully on the door; a little tired, a little old and a good deal spotted, but with he...

The Third Person

By: Henry James

When, a few years since, two good ladies, previously not intimate nor indeed more than slightly acquainted, found themselves domiciled together in the small but ancient town of Marr, it was as a result, naturally, of special considerations. They bore the same name and were second cousins; but their paths had not hitherto crossed; there had not been coincidence of age to draw them together; and Miss Frush, the more mature, had spent much of her life abroad. She was a blan...

The Story of It

By: Henry James

The weather had turned so much worse that the rest of the day was certainly lost. The wind had risen and the storm gathered force; they gave from time to time a thump at the firm windows and dashed even against those protected by the verandah their vicious splotches of rain. Beyond the lawn, beyond the cliff, the great wet brush of the sky dipped deep into the sea. But the lawn, already vivid with the touch of May, showed a violence of watered green; the budding shrubs a...

The Spoils of Poynton

By: Henry James

MrsGereth had said she would go with the rest to church, but suddenly it seemed to her that she should not be able to wait even till church-time for relief: breakfast, at Waterbath, was a punctual meal, and she had still nearly an hour on her hands. Knowing the church to be near, she prepared in her room for the little rural walk, and on her way down again, passing through corridors and observing imbecilities of decoration, the æsthetic misery of the big commodious house...
