Paradise Lost Ⅰ

作者 : 约翰·弥尔顿

Milton's Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. It tells the story of the Fall of Man, a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle rages across three worlds - heaven, hell, and earth - as Satan and his band of rebel angels plot their revenge against God. At the center of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love.Marked by Milton's characteristic erudition is a work epic both in scale and, notoriously, in ambition. For nearly 350 years it has held generation upon generation of scholars, students and readers in rapt attention and its profound influence can be seen in almost every corner of Western culture.

The Secret Rose

作者 : 叶芝

Offers a glimpse of all Yeats' styles--beginning with his youthful romantic idealism and ending with his more outspoken, sardonic treatment of sexuality.CONTENTS:TO THE SECRET ROSE THE CRUCIFIXION OF THE OUTCAST OUT OF THE ROSE THE WISDOM OF THE KING THE HEART OF THE SPRING THE CURSE OF THE FIRES AND OF THE SHADOWS THE OLD MEN OF THE TWILIGHT WHERE THERE IS NOTHING, THERE IS GOD OF COSTELLO THE PROUD, OF OONA THE DAUGHTER OF DERMOTT, AND OF THE BITTER TONGUE.FAR-OFF, most secret, and inviolate Rose,Enfold me in my hour of hours; where those Who sought thee in the Holy Sepulchre, Or in the wine-vat, dwell beyond the stir And tumult of defeated dreams; and deep Among pale eyelids, heavy with the sleep Men have named beauty. Thy great leaves enfold The ancient beards, the helms of ruby and gold Of the crowned Magi; and the king whose eyes Saw the pierced Hands and Rood of elder rise In Druid vapour and make the torches dim; Till vain frenzy awoke and he died; and him Who met Fand walking among flaming dew By a grey shore where the wind never blew, And lost the world and Emer for a kiss; And him who drove the gods out of their liss, And till a hundred moms had flowered red Feasted, and wept the barrows of his dead; And the proud dreaming king who flung the crown And sorrow away, and calling bard and clown Dwelt among wine-stained wanderers in deep woods: And him who sold tillage, and house, and goods, And sought through lands and islands numberless years, Until he found, with laughter and with tears, A woman of so shining loveliness That men threshed corn at midnight by a tress, A little stolen tress. I, too, await The hour of thy great wind of love and hate. When shall the stars be blown about the sky, Like the sparks blown out of a smithy, and die? Surely thine hour has come, thy great wind blows, Far-off, most secret, and inviolate Rose?

Paradise

作者 : 唐纳德·巴塞尔姆

A fifty-three-year-old architect with a tragic sense of brick, Simon takes a year's sabbatical from his job and his marriage and moves to New York. The apartment he sublets is spacious and empty, so when he meets three gorgeous lingerie models -- half his age and a little down on their luck -- at a Lexington Avenue bar, it seems perfectly natural to invite them to move in. The situation, they point out, has the structure of a male fantasy. Simon's houseguests prove to be surprisingly perceptive and intelligent, but they are each a little lost, struggling to find their way in that difficult city. Simon, by turns doting and inattentive, tempted and horrified, offers them his skewed philosophies of life and love. Privately, he mourns his age, his stalled career, his diminishing sexual prowess, and the inevitable day when the women will leave him.

Just So Stories

作者 : 吉卜林

A just-so story, also called the ad hoc fallacy, is a term used in academic anthropology, biological sciences, and social sciences. It describes an unverifiable and unfalsifiable narrative explanation for a cultural practice or a biological trait or behavior of humans or other animals. The use of the term is an implicit criticism that reminds the hearer of the essentially fictional and unprovable nature of such an explanation. Such tales are common in folklore and mythology (where they are known as etiological myths)《远古传奇》是吉卜林创作的儿童作品中最有名的故事集之一。在吉卜林所有的著作当中,他自己最喜欢的就是这本《远古传奇》。每一个故事都称得上是吉卜林的代表作。他对动物的热爱仿佛与生俱来,并从中获得巨大灵感。本书所收集的大象的孩子、花豹身上的斑点是怎么长出来的、独来独往的猫和其他寓言故事最初是吉卜林讲给他孩子的女护理员听的。前者讲得津津有味,后者听得如痴如醉。这些故事按照主题和描述的环境,从动物讲到字母的起源,从史前山洞讲到非洲热带丛林。本书以离奇而丰富的想象,细腻而生动的描写,讲述着很久很久以前人类与动物的种种变故。
