By Harriet Rutland

That settles it, idea Smith savagely. He will probably be murdered, no matter if i must do it myself!

The Hardstaffe family members aren't the nicest humans on the earth. in truth, he - schoolteacher, lothario and bully, she - power malcontent - and their horsey single grownup daughter appear to be best applicants for homicide. A author making plans those deaths, on paper at the very least, and a tender woman, chased through outdated Hardstaffe, are the single outsiders in a deliciously neat, yet nasty, case.

Blue homicide used to be the final of Harriet Rutland’s secret novels, first released in 1942. This new version, the 1st in over 70 years, positive aspects an advent through crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.

São Bernardo (88th Edition)

First released in 1934.

About the writer: Graciliano Ramos was once generally one in all crucial Brazilian authors of the twentieth century. He used to be a seminal voice within the literary "regionalism" movement.
As a baby Ramos lived in lots of towns of Northeastern Brazil, laid low with poverty and serious climatic conditions (droughts). After high-school, Graciliano went to Rio de Janeiro the place he labored as a journalist. In 1915 he traveled to Palmeira dos Indios, nation of Alagoas, to stay along with his father and in 1927 he used to be elected mayor.
In 1933 he released his first booklet, Caetés. many years later he was once jailed by means of the Getúlio Vargas govt, on a cost that was once by no means made transparent. His reviews in penitentiary might turn into a different own deposition, Memórias do Cárcere.
Graciliano died in 1953, on the age of 60. His "dry" type of writing and the clash among the identification and the area are the numerous marks of his works.

About the ebook (in Portuguese): Defrontado consigo mesmo e suas lembranças, no declínio de um atribulado percurso de vida, Paulo Honório, que chegara a ser um poderoso fazendeiro do sertão alagoano, conta a sua história. E o que nos fica é a figura de um homem simplório, perplexo diante da complexidade da existência sobre a qual lutou, sempre, para se manter no papel de protagonista, e que teve entretanto suas ações voltadas contra si mesmo. É o perfil de um homem envolvido quase instintivamente no jogo de poder, na arriscada aposta da lei do mais uniqueness, e para quem o triunfo rende apenas o vazio e o abandono.

Ao ultimate, Paulo Honório deixa de lado o que conquistou, oprimido pela constatação de que perdeu justamente o que poderia humanizar sua vida, inclusive sua mulher, Heloísa, a quem se culpa, no fundo, por ter destruído. O que escapou a Paulo Honório foi a capacidade de manter o que lhe poderia despertar a aptidão para amar.

A par da elaborada teia existencial desenvolvida ao longo da trama - pelos conflitos entre as visões de mundo incorporadas pelos personagens - destaca-se um texto riquíssimo, principalmente nas falas de Paulo Honório, construído em metáforas surpreendentes, embora disfarçadas pela concretude das palavras.

Ciúme, solidão. .. Não há sínteses satisfatórias para um romance como este, de linhagem genuinamente machadiana, em que a alma dos personagens se expõe com tanta crueza e exatidão. São Bernardo é a obra que projetou Graciliano Ramos como um dos maiores escritores brasileiros.

Lolita

Sarebbe difficile, in step with chi non ne è stato testimone, immaginare oggi l. a. violenza dello scandalo internazionale, according to oltraggiata pruderie, che "Lolita" provocò al suo apparire nel 1955. E story è l'abitudine alla sciocca regola secondo cui ciò che fa chiasso è inevitabilmente sprovvisto di una durevole qualità letteraria, tanta period allora l'ignoranza dell'opera di Nabokov che solo pochi capirono quel che oggi è un'evidenza dinanzi agli occhi di tutti: "Lolita" è non solo un meraviglioso romanzo, ma uno dei grandi testi della passione che attraversano l. a. nostra storia, dalla leggenda di Tristano e Isotta alla Certosa di Parma, dalle canzoni trobadoriche advert Anna Karenina.

Example text

The setup here is oddly repeated when Moll returns to Virginia much later with her fourth husband, Jemmy. In many ways, Jemmy is a male version of Moll, 舠a man that was as well qualified to make me happy, as to his temper and behaviour, as any man ever was舡 (p. 134). She first meets him when both are engaged in what Moll calls a 舠double fraud舡 (p. 134), and still Moll cannot help revering him: 舠He was a lovely person indeed, of generous principles, good sense, and of abundance of good humour舡 (p.

We can think back on this exchange when, in fact, Moll later becomes a gentlewoman. One of the counterweights of the narrative for Defoe is the realization that for one born like Moll in and to Newgate, gentility is as much a mark of fraud as a mark of rank. When Moll first takes up with the mayor of Colchester舗s family early in the action, the mayor舗s wife is charmed by her misunderstanding of gentlewoman and 舠put her hand in her pocket, gave me a shilling, and bid me mind my work, and learn to work well, and I might be a gentlewoman for aught she knew舡 (p.

Her horror is equaled in its intensity only by her later references to the actual incest she commits and then abjures with her brother: 舠I could almost as willingly have embraced a dog舡 (p. 89). Moll舗s first reaction to incest is not that she has committed a crime against legal standards but against natural law. She is 舠not much touched with the crime of it, yet the action had something in it shocking to nature, and made my husband even nauseous to me舡 (pp. 81-82). Moll would like nothing better than to forget the incest interlude in Virginia, but the narrative will not let her.
