  • The House of Mirth

    The House of Mirth is a 1905 novel by the American author Edith Wharton. It tells the story of Lily Bart, a well-born but impoverished woman belonging to New York City's high society around the turn of the last century. Wharton creates a portrait of a stunning beauty who, though raised and educated to marry well both socially and economically, is reaching her 29th year, an age when her youthful blush is drawing to a close and her marital prospects are becoming ever more limited. The House of Mirth traces Lily's slow two-year social descent from privilege to a tragically lonely existence on the margins of society. In the words of one scholar, Wharton uses Lily as an attack on "an irresponsible, grasping and morally corrupt upper class."

  • The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights

    Available: Epub Kindle PlainText Pdf 110 Downloads
    Readers of all ages will thrill to these timeless tales of chivalry and romance at the court of Camelot. Based on Thomas Malory's classic Le Morte d'Arthur and influenced by the poetry of Tennyson's Idylls of the King, Sir James Knowles's renditions of the ancient legends offer an enchanting account of how a boy who drew a sword from a stone came to rule over a kingdom defended by a brotherhood of knights. Louis Rhead's evocative black-and-white illustrations, inspired by Celtic art of the sixth century, add depth and resonance to these retellings of the Arthurian myths. The stories range from Merlin's earliest prophecies and the young king's encounter with the Lady of the Lake to the adventures of Sir Lancelot, the quest for the Holy Grail, and Arthur's final battle and voyage to Avalon. These stories have inspired numerous film adaptations, including the 2017 release King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, and Annabelle Wallis.

    Als Gregor Samsa eines Morgens aus unruhigen Träumen erwachte, fand er sich in seinem Bett zu einem ungeheuren Ungeziefer verwandelt. Er lag auf seinem panzerartig harten Rücken und sah, wenn er den Kopf ein wenig hob, seinen gewölbten, braunen, von bogenförmigen Versteifungen geteilten Bauch, auf dessen Höhe sich die Bettdecke, zum gänzlichen Niedergleiten bereit, kaum noch erhalten konnte. Seine vielen, im Vergleich zu seinem sonstigen Umfang kläglich dünnen Beine flimmerten ihm hilflos vor den Augen.
