Edith Wharton – The Descent of Man and other Stories – Audiobook

This collection of ten stories, first published in 1904, shows Edith Wharton dissecting some of the customs, habits and vagaries of courtship and marriage, particularly as practiced in the upper reaches of New York society at the turn of the twentieth century (two stories, however, are set in Italy). Fidelity is only one problem; others may arise from the machinations and emotions of the protagonists or outsiders. Wharton handles the questions (altro…)

Emily Dickinson – Poems – Series Two – Audiobook

“The eagerness with which the first volume of Emily Dickinson’s poems has been read shows very clearly that all our alleged modern artificiality does not prevent a prompt appreciation of the qualities of directness and simplicity in approaching the greatest themes,—life and love and death. That “irresistible needle-touch,” as one of her best critics has called it, piercing at once the very core of a thought, has found a response as (altro…)

Three Essays on Religion by Mill, John Stuart

The Three Essays on Religion were written at different times during Mill’s life, and only published after his death. The first two, ‘Nature’ and ‘The Utility of Religion’ date from the 1850s – the period between the publication of ‘The Principles of Political Economy’ and ‘On Liberty’. The third longer essay, ‘Theism’ was written between 1868 and 1870. The three essays were published posthumously in 1874. (Summary by Justin Brett)

Eminent Victorians by Lytton Strachey, Giles

On Modern Library’s list of 100 Best Non-Fiction books, “Eminent Victorians” marked an epoch in the art of biography; it also helped to crack the old myths of high Victorianism and to usher in a new spirit by which chauvinism, hypocrisy and the stiff upper lip were debunked. In it, Strachey cleverly exposes the self-seeking ambitions of Cardinal Manning and the manipulative, neurotic Florence Nightingale; and in his essays on Dr (altro…)
