Excerpt from Dramatic Works of Lord Byron, Vol. 2 of 4: Including Manfred, Cain, Doge of Venice, Sardanapalus, and the Two Foscari, Together With His Hebrew Melodies and Other Poems Manfred alone. - Scene a Gothic Gallery. - Time Midnight. Man. The lamp must be replenish'd, but even then It will not burn so long as I must watch: My slumbers - if I slumber - are not sleep, But a continuance of enduring thought, Which then I can resist not: in my heart There is a vigil, and these eyes but close To look within; and yet I live, and bear The aspect and the form of breathing men. But grief should be the instructor of the wise; Sorrow is knowledge: they who know the most Must mourn the deepest o'er the fatal truth, The Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life. Philosophy and science, and the springs Of wonder, and the wisdom of the world, I have essay'd, and in my mind there is A power to make these subject to itself - But they avail not: I have done men good. And I have met with good even among men - But this avail'd not: I have had my foes. And none have baffled, many fallen before me - But this avail'd not: - Good, or evil, life. Powers, passions, all I see in other beings. Have been to me as rain unto the sands. Since that all-nameless hour. I have no dread, And feel the curse to have no natural fear. Nor fluttering throb, that beats with hopes or wishes, Or lurking love of something on the earth. - Now to my task. - About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Autobiography of Leigh Hunt, Vol. 1 of 3 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Autobiography of Leigh Hunt, Vol. 1 of 3: With Reminiscences of Friends and Contemporaries In the summer of 1825 Leigh Hunt had been for three years a sojourner in Italy, whither he had gone at the invitation of Lord Byron and Shelley to edit that ill-fated magazine the Liberal. During these three years a series of disastrous events had occurred, all more or less bearing directly on Hunts life, and all described at considerable length and with much circumstantial detail in the following pages. The death of Shelley, the failure after four numbers of the Liberal, the unfriendly attitude taken up by Lord Byron, and his subsequent death, were sufficient in themselves to make it highly desirable for Hunt to return to England. Italy however had a great attraction for him, and he lingered on at Florence for fully three months, until September, 1825, when his return home became imperative, owing to the action of his brother John, who contended that Leigh Hunt, by his protracted absence, had forfeited his proprietary rights in the Examiner. One of the immediate obstacles to his return was that he was, nominally at any rate, without resources. The expenses of a journey to England were at that time considerable, and this prodigal son of letters had no means whatever wherewith to defray them. It was in these circumstances that Hunts old friend and admirer, Vincent Novello, made an arrangement with Henry Colburn, the publisher, for the advance of a sum of money on account of a book. The book thus arranged for was originally to have consisted of a collection of the authors scattered writings, with an autobiographical introduction. Hunt arrived in England in October, 1825, but no new book appeared bearing his name until 1828, when a large quarto volume was published with the title of Lord Byron and some of his Contemporaries; with Recollections of the Authors Life and of his Visit to Italy.

Frankenstein Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A terrifying vision of scientific progress without moral limits, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" leads the reader on an unsettling journey from the sublime beauty of the Swiss alps to the desolate waste of the arctic circle. This "Penguin Classics" edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Maurice Hindle. Obsessed with the idea of creating life itself, Victor Frankenstein plunders graveyards for the material with which to fashion a new being, shocking his creation to life with electricity. But this botched creature, rejected by its creator and denied human companionship, sets out to destroy Frankenstein and all that he holds dear. Mary Shelley's chilling gothic tale was conceived when she was only eighteen, living with her lover Percy Shelley near Lord Byron's villa on Lake Geneva. It would become the world's most famous work of Gothic horror, and Frankenstein's monster an instantly-recognisable symbol of the limits of human creativity. Based on the third edition of 1831, this volume contains all the revisions Mary Shelley made to her story, as well as her 1831 introduction and Percy Shelley's preface to the first edition. This revised edition includes as appendices a select collation of the texts of 1818 and 1831 together with "A Fragment" by Lord Byron and Dr John Polidori's "The Vampyre: A Tale". Mary Shelley (1797-1851) was the only daughter of the author and political philosopher William Godwin, and Mary Wollstonecraft, author of "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman". In 1814 she eloped with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, whom she married when his first wife died in 1816. She is best remembered as the author of "Frankenstein", but she wrote several other works, including "Valperga" and "The Last Man". If you liked "Frankenstein", you might enjoy Bram Stoker's "Dracula", also available in "Penguin Classics".

Pieces of Eight Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Pieces of Eight: A Sequence of Twenty Four War-Sonnets Here you have a knockout blow with a vengeance. The sonnet as a whole is not one which we can approve from a technical or a sentimental point of view, but it has points. Henley might have plumed himself on the line about the creaking corsets and the last line, a tour de force, in its way reminds us of the withering ironies of Byron. It is only fair to Mr. Chaloner to add that not all his sonnets are concerned with . . . general thumping. Some of them show the tenderer emotions proper to a poet. We like him best, however, in his character as metrical bruiser. He is always on the side of the angels even if he is frequently over vigorous; and his book is well worth possessing. We gather that he has undergone personal troubles of no light or of ordinary nature, and it is pleasant to note that, despite these troubles, he still retains a sane and reasonable outlook upon life, for when he likes he can be quite pleasantly humorous instead of acridly bitter." It is very meet and right that the discoverer - for that is what Lord Alfred Douglas - the then editor of the Academy - undoubtedly was - it is very meet and right that Lord Alfred Douglas - the descendant of that famous Marquis of Queensbury who compiled the rules that formerly guided the mighty right of the peerless John L. Sullivan - of Boston, Massachusetts - the former champion of the world - and now control the dusky member of his formidable successor Jack Johnson - the terror of 'white hopes' - but only until a second John L. Sullivan - shall arise, and put him down and out, for the count - it is very meet and right that the discoverer of the hardest metrical hitter America has as yet turned out, should be the lineal descendant of the Marquis of Queensbury. It is a case of "In hoc signo rences" with us. We at once printed the Academy's review in the edition of "Scorpio" sent out for review to the American press; and consequently our work was treated on the strength thereof - with a respect - from the vast majority of critics, from ocean to ocean - North and South - which was highly satisfactory. Now, alas, the situation has changed. The very correct and desirable attitude of neutrality - advised and urged by President Woodrow Wilson, concerning the European war - has closed the columns of newspapers North as well as South.

Fabre D'Olivet - Cain Hermetica Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Antoine Fabre d'Olivet (December 8, 1767-March 25, 1825) was a French author, poet, and composer whose biblical and philosophical hermeneutics in?uenced many occultists, such as Eliphas Lévi and Gerard Encausse (Papus), and René Guénon. D'Olivet spent his life pursuing the esoteric wisdom concealed in the Hebrew scriptures, Greek philosophy, and the symbolism of many ancient cultures as far back as ancient India, Persia, and Egypt. His writings are considered classics of the Hermetic tradition. His best known works today are his research on the Hebrew language (The Hebraic Tongue Restored), his translation and interpretation of the writings of Pythagoras (The Golden Verses of Pythagoras), and his writings on the sacred art of music. In addition to the above works, Hermetica has published in consistent facsimile format for its Collected Works of Fabre d'Olivet series The Healing of Rodolphe Grivel, as well as Hermeneutic Interpretation of the Origin of the Social State of Man and the Destiny of the Adamic Race. D'Olivet's mastery of many ancient languages and their literatures enabled him to write (in the time of Napoleon) this latter work, which remains a landmark investigation of the deeper esoteric undercurrents at work in the history of culture. The Mosaic cosmogony of Fabre d'Olivet is derived in its entirely from the Sepher of Moses, and one should have read his translation of the Bereshith to comprehend how the esoteric ideas of the Egyptians upon the creation differ from the simple narratives of the exoteric translators of Moses, and are, instead, writings containing the chronicle of the human soul, its origin, phases of involution and evolution, and the means whereby it may ultimately regain its origin. From Translator's Foreword Cain and Abel are the two primordial forces of elementary nature. These are the first two cosmogonic beings produced by Eve, when after a certain movement toward elementary nature, she has lost her name of Aisha, which designated the intellectual nature of Adam, to take that of Eve, which expresses no more than the material life of this universal being.

Excerpt from Memini: Or Reminiscences of Irish Life "The ancient Persians taught three useful things: To ride, to draw the bow, to speak the truth. Such was the mode of Cyrus, best of kings, A mode adopted since by modern youth. Bows have they, generally with two strings; Horses they ride without remorse or ruth; At speaking truth perhaps they're not so clever, But draw the long bow better now than ever." Such was the metrical comment of Lord Byron on Herodotus' sentence as to the bringing up of the youth of Persia: and we find his lordship very severe subsequently on the Milesian modes and methods of drawing the long how; but surely the Aryan Irish are more or less privileged par droit de naissance to adopt; this toxophilitish trope, for they are said to be kinsmen to the Persians, whose chief bard, Firdousi, tells us that after a ruction between themselves and the Scythians a treaty was signed between the belligerents, one of the articles of which declared that the Persians were to have all the country to the north-east, over which an arrow could be shot from Demavend, and that a bowman, named Arish, ascended the mountain at sun rise, and shot an arrow to the banks of the Oxus, which did not fall till noon!

John Keats (pronounced / ki ts/, "keets") (31 October 1795 23 February 1821) was an English poet, who became one of the key figures of the Romantic movement. Along with Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley, Keats was one of the second generation Romantic poets. During his short life his work was not well received by critics, but his posthumous influence on poets such as Alfred Tennyson and Wilfred Owen was significant. The poetry of Keats was characterised by elaborate word choice and sensual imagery, most notably in a series of odes which remain among the most popular poems in English literature. The letters of Keats, which include the development of his aesthetic theory of negative capability, are among the most celebrated by any English poet.
