Love and Friendship –by: Jane Austen

Begun when she was just eleven years old, Love and Friendship is one of Jane Austen's stories that very few readers may have encountered before.

Austen experts feel that this story was written, like many others, only for the pleasure of her family and friends. It is scribbled across three notebooks, in childish handwriting, and the complete work is thought to have been written over a period of six or seven years. It is dedicated to one of her cousins, whom she was very close to, Eliza de Feuillide. Eliza herself was an extremely colorful figure and is thought to have been ...

Letters of Pliny

The largest surviving body of Pliny's work is his Epistulae (Letters), a series of personal missives directed to his friends, associates and the Emperor Trajan. These letters are a unique testimony of Roman administrative history and everyday life in the 1st century CE. Especially noteworthy among the letters are two in which he describes the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in August 79, during which his uncle Pliny the Elder died (65 and 66 in this edition), and one in which he asks the Emperor for instructions regarding official policy concerning Christians (Trajan Letter 97). Other letters inclu...

Galatea –by: Anton Giulio Barrili

Si potrebbe chiamare un romanzo epistolare: è un misto di pagine di diario e di lettere che il protagonista, Rinaldo Morelli, un estimatore del poeta latino Orazio, scrive durante un’estate a Corsenna, un ameno paesello toscano in collina, frequentato da diversi villeggianti dai quali il nostro cerca di tenersi bene alla larga. Ma saranno loro ad andare in cerca di lui e a riempire la pagine dei suoi scritti… soprattutto una certa Galatea.
