Excerpt from The English Language: A Brief History of Its Grammatical Changes and Its Vocabulary; With Exercises on Synonyms, Prefixes and Suffixes, Word-Analysis and Word-Buildung We give the decisions Of usage upon a dozen or more vital grammatical and verbal questions yet in debate. For this Office we have been qualifying ourselves by years Of reading Specially directed to this end. It need astonish no one that in almost every instance we found ourselves in open con¿ict with many critics who, during the past few years, have so oracularly taught us how not to say that which we have to say. In the more comprehensive work soon to appear - a work into which this, in fuller form, will enter - the verdict of usage on scores and scores Of other mooted points will be reported. We have but opened the subject in this volume. The place in the curriculum of study for which this work is designed is near that held by rhetoric - immediately before or after it, we think certainly before that Of English liter ature. With one exception we need not here name the authors consulted in the preparation of the work. This exception is Professor Lounsbury. We have for years used his English Language as a text-book. Our debt to him of which we are conscious is not small but smaller, doubtless, than that Of which we are unconscious. Especially was his book helpful in assigning the dates of changes spoken of in chapters IV. - VII. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Paradise Lost , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 567min

Paradise Lost is considered to be the best epic poem in the English language, as John Milton seeks to ´´justify the ways of God to men´´ through relating the story of Satan´s rebellion in Heaven, the deception and fall of Man, and the presaged event of Redemption through Jesus, the Son of God...the ´´Second Adam.´´ An English cleric with a classical education, Milton lost his eyesight in 1652, and thus the story was largely dictated by the blind poet, lending a certain quality of the ancient oral epics, which only serves to enhance the telling of the tale. Weaving classical mythology with a deep knowledge and reference to Scripture, Milton´s genius for narrative unfolds what his biographer, Samuel Johnson, called his ´´peculiar power to astonish.´´ 1.

"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn...it´s the best book we´ve had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since." - Ernest Hemingway Samuel Langhorne Clemens - better known by his pen name of Mark Twain - towers over all other American writers. But who was the man behind the novels? In this revealing, compact biography, Alexander Kennedy examines Twain´s extraordinary life, expertly separating fact from fiction, biography from legend. Here we see how Twain rose from an impoverished boyhood on the Mississippi to become one of the nation´s most famous men, using the very material of that impoverished boyhood to propel his rise. But Twain´s life also had more than its share of tragedy, and his story is also one of failure, bankruptcy, and grievous loss. Twain guides the listener through Twain´s many rises and falls, showing how this master author spun both his highs and lows into literary gold, changing the face of world literature forever. "Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest." - Mark Twain 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim D Johnston.

Here´s a riveting novel of feeling and suspense in which grief and punishment become tragically intertwined. At the close of a beautiful summer day near the quiet Connecticut town where they live, the Learner family - Ethan, Grace, and their children, Josh and Emma - stops at a gas station on their way home from a concert. Josh Learner, lost in a 10-year-old´s private world, is standing at the edge of the road when a car comes racing around the bend. He is hit and instantly killed. The car speeds away. From this moment forward, Reservation Road becomes a harrowing countdown to the confrontation between two very different men. The hit-and-run driver is a small-town lawyer named Dwight Arno, a man in desperate need of a second chance. Dwight is also the father of a 10-year-old boy, who was asleep in the car the night Josh Learner was killed. Now Dwight must decide whether to run from his crime or to pay the price for what he did. Ethan Learner, a respected professor of literature at a small New England college, has seen his orderly world shattered in a single moment, yet he persists in the belief that he can find the unknown man who killed his son. Behind their stories are those of 8-year-old Emma, who can´t stop thinking her brother´s death was her fault, and of Grace, who must find the strength to keep herself and her family together, and to be the mother Emma so badly needs. In a gripping narrative woven from the voices of Ethan, Dwight, and Grace, Reservation Road tells the story of two ordinary families facing an extraordinary crisis. This is an audiobook that sounds like a thriller but opens up a world rich with psychological nuance and emotional wisdom. Reservation Road explores the terrain of grief even as it astonishes with unexpected redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Various.

Hero: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia...

Michael Korda´s Hero is the story of an epic life on a grand scale: a revealing, in-depth, and gripping biography of the extraordinary, mysterious, and dynamic Englishman whose daring exploits and romantic profile - including his blond, sun-burnished good looks and flowing white robes - made him an object of intense fascination, still famous the world over as ´´Lawrence of Arabia´´. An Oxford scholar and archaeologist, one of five illegitimate sons of a British aristocrat who ran away with his daughters´ governess, Lawrence was sent to Cairo as a young intelligence officer in 1916. He vanished into the desert in 1917, only to emerge later as one of the greatest, and certainly most colorful, figures of World War One. Though a foreigner, he played a leading and courageous part in uniting the Arab tribes to defeat the Turks, and eventually capture Damascus, transforming himself into a world-famous hero, hailed as ´´the Uncrowned King of Arabia´´. In illuminating Lawrence´s achievements, Korda digs further than anyone before him to expose the flesh-and-blood man and his contradictory nature. And as Korda shows in his brilliantly readable and formidably authoritative biography, Lawrence was not only a man of his × he was a visionary whose accomplishments - as a farsighted diplomat and kingmaker, military strategist of genius, perhaps the first modern ´´media celebrity´´ (and one of the first victims of it), and an acclaimed writer - transcended his era. Korda examines Lawrence´s vision for the modern Middle East - plans that, had they been carried through, might have prevented the hatred and bloodshed that have become ubiquitous in the region. Ultimately, as this magisterial work demonstrates, Lawrence remains one of the most unique and fascinating figures of modern times, the arch-hero whose life is at once a triumph and a sacrifice and whose capacity to astonish still remains undimmed. 1.
