Mopsa the Fairy –by: Jean Ingelow

Jean Ingelow (1820 – 1897) was one of the more famous poets of the period, indeed many people suggested that she should succeed Alfred, Lord Tennyson as the first female Poet Laureate when he died in 1892. Mopsa the Fairy, written in 1869 is one of her more enduring stories. It is a delightful fantasy about a young boy who discovers a nest of young fairies and tells of their adventures together.

Undine

Undine is a novel by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué concerning Undine, a water spirit who marries a Knight named Huldebrand in order to gain a soul. It is an early German romance, which has been translated into English and other languages. The novel served as inspiration for two operas in the romantic style by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann and Albert Lortzing, respectively, and two ballets: the nineteenth century Ondine and the twentieth century Undine. An edition of the book was illustrated by Arthur Rackham. In The Fantastic Imagination, George MacDonald writes, “Were I asked, what is a...

DE KLEINE DEUGNIET.

Er was eens een kleine jongen, die zoo stout was, dat ieder er schande over sprak. Hij sloeg de kindermeid, gooide moedwillig glazen en borden stuk, stak zijn tong tegen zijn vader uit en durfde zijn arme moeder, die hem, ondanks al zijn gebreken, hartelijk liefhad, boos van zich af te duwen, als zij hem, midden in een driftbui, in haar armen wilde nemen, om hem tot bedaren te brengen.

Behalve zijn ouders, no...
