Collected Folk Tales book. It is peculiar to encounter a book half of which was assembled up to 40 years after the rest and not to be able to see any obvious difference in the writing or the writer
Collected Folk Tales book. It is peculiar to encounter a book half of which was assembled up to 40 years after the rest and not to be able to see any obvious difference in the writing or the writer. The prose in the old stories feels as inevitable as the new. The stories are written in a variety of voices, emulating the places the tales came from, but the prose is always spare and hard, not a word wasted, not a word out of place. Here we have stories from Britain and Ireland and all over the world, retold with assurance.
The story – tedious, artificial, and melodramatic – is further impaired by a brisk and prosaic style whose urbane sprightliness nowhere permits the creation of a truly weird atmosphere. It tells of Manfred, an unscrupulous and usurping prince determined to found a line, who after the mysterious sudden death of his only son Conrad on the latter’s bridal morn, attempts to put away his wife Hippolita and wed the lady destined for the unfortunate youth – the lad, by the way, having been crushed by the preternatural fall of a gigantic helmet.

An alternate cover for this isbn can be found here. I disliked the crime st I’ve been reading this book for almost three years and it feels so good to finally have finished it! I was surprised by what I found in here. Poe was slightly different to what I thought. He is very much shrouded in shadow and the macabre, at least, his more successful stories and poems were.
When Pushkin first read some of the stories in this collection, he declared himself ''amazed. More than a century and a half later, Nikolai Gogol's stories continue to delight readers the world over. 'Here is real gaiety,'' he wrote, ''honest, unconstrained, without mincing, without primness. And in places what poetry!. I still haven't recovered. Now a stunning new translation-from an award-winning team of these stories in all their inventive, exuberant glory to English-speaking readers.
I stumbled upon the Book of Songs in a James Michener library in PA. It was an incredible experience for reading and learning song structure, like varying similar stanzas and repeating verses. It was my introduction to Chinese literature also
I stumbled upon the Book of Songs in a James Michener library in PA. It was my introduction to Chinese literature also. The Book of Songs is Waley's selection of popular songs throughout Chinese history. You might also enjoy Lao Tzu, the philosopher, and Li Po, the wandering poet. These little songs rival the great Japanese haiku in terms of human condition content and in emotional expressions of love and loss. There are no cliches though. The love songs are stamped.
