The Three Cities Trilogy: Rome

ROME

FROM "THE THREE CITIES"

By Emile Zola

Translated By Ernest A. Vizetelly

PREFACE

IN submitting to the English speaking public this second volume of M. Zola's trilogy "Lourdes, Rome, Paris," I have no prefatory remarks to offer on behalf of the author, whose views on Rome, its past, present, and future, will be found fully expounded in the following pages. That a book of this character will, like its forerunner "Lourdes," provoke considerable controversy is certain, but comment or rejoinder may well be postponed until that controversy has arisen. At pres...

Menschen im Krieg –by: Andreas Latzko

6 Novellen über den Krieg. 6 tragische Menschenschicksale. 6 Geschichten über die Auswirkungen des 1. Weltkrieges. Geschichten über Angst, Schuldgefühle, Trauma, Wut ... Sie zeigen die Sinnlosigkeit des Krieges und schildern anschaulich - teils sehr graphisch - die Zust"ande an der Front und zu Hause und die inneren Beweggründe der Protagonisten. Der Autor richtet gekonnt und ergreifend den Krieg, aber nicht den Menschen - selbst die vermeintlichen Antagonisten sind einfach nur Menschen mit tragischem Schicksal. (Zusammenfassung von Julia Niedermaier)

Denis Stone (Huxley himself) is a young poet hopelessly enamored of the languid Anne Wimbush, who comes to Priscilla Wimbush's Crome estate for several weeks of intellectual and artistic escape. Along the way of his love affair, he engages in or eavesdrops upon conv...

The Defects of the Negro Church.

The writer does not undertake to point out all the defects of the Negro church. He does not lay any claim to omniscience.

The limits of time and the scope of the subject prevent him from discussing even what he knows in part. It is only some of the leading defects in the Negro Church which will be presented for discussion. ...
