              Literary Essays on Explicable Splendours (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

              By Lewis, Ethan; Edited by None

              A literary critic aspires to eloquence, though makes no pretense to mirror the sublimity of the monuments inspiring his endeavors. Poets express their wonder through works of art. Critics articulate their homage via analysis of art's workings. Hence, these essays and lectures, ad...dressed to the quizzical, though not of necessity scholarly, reader, explore Shakespeare and noted re-envisioners of the Bard; four modern novels that interrogate identity; and underappreciated works and writers. They...

              By Anna T. Litovkina, Wolfgang Mieder; Edited by None

              This book explores various aspects of marriage and the ways it is viewed and conceptualized in the body of Anglo-American anti-proverbs (or proverb transformations). It also depicts those who contribute to the institution of marriage (that is, husbands and wives), and analyses th...eir nature, qualities, attributes and behaviours as revealed through such anti-proverbs.

              By Paraskeviotis, George C.; Edited by None

              Between 42 and 39 BC, Vergil composed the first Latin pastoral collection, entitled Eclogues, and consisting of ten poems in the form in which it has come down to us. Vergil's Eclogues represent the introduction of a new genre, the pastoral, to Latin literature, and recall the He...llenistic poet Theocritus who invented this genre. The fact that the Roman author inserts into the text elements from other Greek and Latin texts modifying them through innovations and changes (constitutes an attracti...

              An Australian Family Poignancy in WWI: Two Brothers Killed on the Western Front, France, 1916-1917 (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

              By East, Bob; Edited by None

              Australia's participation in World War I-and subsequent casualties-was unparalleled in its short history, and, it is fair to say, will never be repeated again. Briefly, out of just over 1,000,000 men who were eligible to enlist and fight overseas, 420,000 did just that. Of this n...umber, over 62,000 were killed and a further 156,000 were wounded-56.7%. If that was translated into Australia's population today-approximately twenty-five million-it would equate into over one million casualties. Thi...

              A Victorian Architectural Controversy: Who Was the Real Architect of the Houses of Parliament? (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

              By None; Edited by Kondo, Ariyuki

              Who was the bona fide architect of the New Houses of Parliament? Charles Barry (1795-1860), the winner of the Parliamentary competition, or Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-52), the 'ghost' designer, a young Catholic architect and Gothic specialist? After both men died, the c...ontroversy over the actual architect of the Houses of Parliament was to become a matter of public dispute, largely stimulated by the directly-opposed claims published by the two men's sons-the architect Edward Welby ...

              Perceptions of Germany in British Travel Literature (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

              By Kassis, Dimitrios; Edited by None

              As part of the "beaten track", Germany did not conform to the Grand Tourist ideals of eighteenth-century British travellers that were influenced by the spirit of the Enlightenment, and, therefore, sought to trace vestiges of the Greco-Roman cultural tradition in their ventures ac...ross the continent. It was not until the end of the eighteenth century that the German landscape becomes the central theme of British travel discourse, marking the gradual shift of focus from the "saturated" image of ...
