              Jabberwocky and Other Poems
               

              Jabberwocky and Other Poems (EPUB ebook)

              By Carroll, Lewis

              Master of gibberish Lewis Carroll brings his inventive style of writing to life once more in the collection "Jabberwocky and Other Poems." Though most famous for his creation of Wonderland and Alice's fall into the uncanny world of the nonsensical, Carroll used his wordsmithing a...bility to form inventive rhymes and lexicons in this collection. Words like "bandersnatch," "chortled," "tulgey," and even "Jabberwocky" are inventions of Carroll's mind. Many critics have searched for meanings in the poem, but it is believed that Carroll used the nonsensical as a satire of high-poetry; he believed that too many writers took themselves seriously, so he wrote "Jabberwocky" as a way to confuse writers and critics alike. Also compiled in "Jabberwocky and Other Poems" are verses from his novels "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass." In both stories, Alice found strange verses laying around Wonderland; this text brings them all together comprehensively for the reader's pleasure. Audiences have fallen in love with Carroll's unorthodox writing style, although there is little to say in terms of the poems' plots. Yet the colorful and amusing nature of Carroll's works draws readers into the author and mathematician's mind, which is a stimulating and vibrant place to be. "Jabberwocky and Other Poems" is enjoyed by readers of all ages, allowing the works to be relished by the entire family.

              Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Stories
               

              Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Stories (EPUB ebook)

              By Stoker, Bram

Among the most captivating of these tales is "Dracula's Guest," which is widely believed to be the first chapter of Stoker's original "Dracula" manuscript. A young Englishman is restlessly wandering about Munich before traveling to Transylvania. When he foolishly leaves his hotel and explores a dense forest, he finds a graveyard with an evil ghost, endures a snowstorm, and has a surprising encounter with a wolf. This volume also includes the novella "The Lair of the White Worm," a horror story which revolves around Adam Salton, a native Australian invited to England by his only surviving relative, Richard Salton. All seems well until he meets the neighbors and discovers a cruel mesmerist, an enormous kite, a violent woman with unknown designs, and a colossal white worm seeking victims near its pit. Fans of "Dracula" will delight in this fine collection of horror stories by the same author.

              The Complete Poetry of William Blake
               

              The Complete Poetry of William Blake (EPUB ebook)

              By Blake, William

              A visionary of eighteen-century English society, William Blake produced a huge collection of poetry, mythology, satires, political pieces, and prophetic works, in addition to his famous etchings and engravings. Although rejected as a madman during his lifetime for claims of heari...ng voices and later having visions, Blake has achieved notoriety as an innovative and extraordinarily imaginative artist. His poetry varies greatly in style and substance, reflecting the writer's literary development and radical shifts in religious belief. This complete collection of Blake's poetry includes his famous "Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience," which exemplify the author's fondness for thematic dichotomies in poems like "The Lamb" and "The Tyger". Also included are "The Four Zoas," "Milton" and "Jerusalem," all of which display an extensive use of symbolism derived from Christianity and an elaborate view of Blake's theories on reality and knowledge.

              The Best Short Stories of Edgar Allan Poe (Illustrated by Harry Clarke with an Introduction by Edmund Clarence Stedman)
               

              The Best Short Stories of Edgar Allan Poe (Illustrated by Harry Clarke with an Introduction by Edmund Clarence Stedman) (EPUB ebook)

              By Poe, Edgar Allan

              Some of the most popular horror and mystery stories of all time are collected together here in "The Best Short Stories of Edgar Allan Poe." A master of the macabre, Poe exhibits his literary prowess in these chilling and classic tales. Included in this collection is "The Fall of ...the House of Usher," the story of a man and his sister who suffer from a strange, debilitating illness. Her death drives him to the point of madness as their fragile mansion falls along with the Usher family line. One of Poe's most famous stories, it is a masterpiece of Gothic literature. Also included in this collection is "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," considered one of the world's first detective stories, which concerns the curious circumstances surrounding a double homicide in France. The emotional tone of fear and trepidation evoked in Poe's work has often been imitated but seldom duplicated. The influence of Poe's writing cannot be overstated, as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once wrote, in his short stories there "is a root from which a whole literature has developed." This collection includes twenty-eight of Poe's best tales, an introduction by Edmund Clarence Stedman, a biographical afterword, and is illustrated by Harry Clarke.

              The Ladies' Paradise
               

              The Ladies' Paradise (EPUB ebook)

              By Zola, Emile

              Emile Zola was one of the most important, though controversial, French novelists of the late nineteenth century, and founder of the Realist movement. In 1871 Zola began to write his most notable series of novels, the "Rougon-Macquart Novels", that relate the history of a fictiona...l family under the Second Empire. As a strict naturalist, Zola was greatly concerned with science, especially the problems of evolution and heredity vs. environment. However, unlike Honore de Balzac, whose works examined a wider scope of French society, Zola focused on the evolution of one, single family. "The Ladies' Paradise" is the eleventh novel in this series, and begins exactly where "Pot-Bouille" left off. Octave Mouret has married and now owns a department store where twenty year old Denise Baudu, who has come to Paris with her brothers, takes a job as a saleswoman. The novel reflects symbolically on capitalism, the modern city, changes in consumer culture, the bourgeois family, and sexual attitudes at the end of the 19th century. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

              The Importance of Being Earnest and Five Other Plays
               

              The Importance of Being Earnest and Five Other Plays (EPUB ebook)

              By Wilde, Oscar

              Witty playwright Oscar Wilde is most famous for his 1895 play "The Importance of Being Earnest." The two protagonists use a false identity, Earnest, as a way to escape from unwanted social obligations. However, they encounter difficulties keeping up their personas as their social... circles draw closer together. Wilde drew upon what he thought were outrageous social conventions of the Victorian Era and used satire to show the absurdity of its beliefs, like how marriage was more of a boring burden than a joyous commitment. "The Importance of Being Earnest" is one of the best known plays of the Victorian Era and has endured many revivals over the past one-hundred years. It is also a prime example of many Victorian gaffes, though they have to be viewed through the lens of Wilde's sardonic humor. Gathered in the collection "The Importance of Being Earnest and Five Other Plays" are "Lady Windermere's Fan," "A Woman of No Importance," and "An Ideal Husband", all of which speak to Wilde's satirical tone and attitude toward the Victorian Era. Also included are the fragmentary play, "A Florentine Tragedy" and "Salome," a retelling of the Biblical story where Salome asks for John the Baptist's head on a platter. Its tone is much darker and tragic than most of Wilde's other works, but its ability to portray such a gruesome event in a respectful way only proves that Oscar Wilde is one of the most important writers of the nineteenth century.
