This carefully crafted ebook: 'Jack and Jill (Children's Classic)' is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Jack and Jill: A Village Story is a children's book. It takes place in a small New England town after the Civil War. The story of two good friends named Jack and Janey, Jack and Jill tells of the aftermath of a serious sledding accident. Extract: ''Clear the lulla!' was the general cry on a bright December afternoon, when all the boys and girls of Harmony Village were out enjoying the first good snow of the season. Up and down three long coasts they went as fast as legs and sleds could carry them. One smooth path led into the meadow, and here the little folk congregated; one swept across the pond, where skaters were darting about like water-bugs; and the third, from the very top of the steep hill, ended abruptly at a rail fence on the high bank above the road.' Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American novelist and poet best known as the author of the classic Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. Alcott was an abolitionist and a feminist.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This carefully crafted ebook: 'PICASSO' is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. As the butch doyenne of the Parisian Salons, Gertrude Stein captures the heart of Picasso in that context and gives insights on how Picasso worked as an artist and why Cubism came about in the way that it did. Also, this portrait of Picasso contains pretty clear description of Cubism and reveals a lot about relationship between Picasso and Stein without revealing a lot of actual events in either of their lives. Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was an American novelist, poet, playwright and art collector, best known for Three Lives, The Making of Americans and Tender Buttons. Stein moved to Paris in 1903, and made France her home for the remainder of her life. Picasso and Cubism were an important influence on Stein's writing. Her works are compared to James Joyce's Ulysses and to Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time.

EREWHON (Dystopian Classic)
1,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This carefully crafted ebook: 'EREWHON (Dystopian Classic)' is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. 'Erewhon or, Over the Range' is a novel by Samuel Butler which was first published anonymously in 1872. The title of the book refers to the name of a country, supposedly discovered by the protagonist. In the novel, it is not revealed where Erewhon is, but it is clear that it is a fictional country. Butler meant the title to be read as 'NOWHERE' backwards even though the letters 'h' and 'w' are transposed. At first glance, Erewhon appears to be a Utopia, yet it soon becomes clear that this is far from the case. In a 1945 broadcast, George Orwell praised and recommended the book and said that when Butler wrote Erewhon it needed 'imagination of a very high order to see that machinery could be dangerous as well as useful.' Samuel Butler (1835-1902) was an iconoclastic English author of a variety of works. He is also known for examining Christian orthodoxy, substantive studies of evolutionary thought, studies of Italian art, and works of literary history and criticism. Butler also made prose translations of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey that remain in use to this day.
