The Real Mother Goose – Blanche Fisher Wright

LITTLE BO-PEEP Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep, And can’t tell where to find them; Leave them alone, and they’ll come home, And bring their tails behind them. Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep, And dreamt she heard them bleating; But when she awoke, she found it a joke, For still they all were fleeting. Then […]

Pretty Dead Girls – Monica Murphy

I finally get her where I want her, folks, and wouldn’t you know, she starts giving me attitude within seconds. “And why am I here again?” Gretchen snags the lit joint from my fingers and brings it to her mouth, taking a long drag. She holds the smoke in, her bright green eyes narrowed, her […]

Pieces of Her – Karin Slaughter

For years, even while she’d loved him, part of her had hated him in that childish way that you hate something you can’t control. He was headstrong, and stupid, and handsome, which gave him cover for a hell of a lot of the mistakes he continually made—the same mistakes, over and over again, because why […]

Perfect Stranger – Jake Cross

 Chris’s wife walked into the kitchen, mail in hand and favouring her right ankle today. She held up a note. It was a piece of thick white paper the size of a postcard. It was blank. Blank except for those eight words which he could read even from six feet away. I KNOW WHAT YOU […]

Perfect Girls – Alison James

It’s all so easy. The website had promised ‘a super-slick check-in process’, and it is. A message with the address and directions arrives twenty-four hours in advance, and another suggests an arrival time, stressing that this is negotiable. On the day, there’s a quick hello, a mention of a couple of important things to remember, […]

The Rámáyan of Válmíki, translated into English verse – Valmiki

To sainted Nárad, prince of those Whose lore in words of wisdom flows. Whose constant care and chief delight Were Scripture and ascetic rite, The good Válmíki, first and best [pg 002] Of hermit saints, these words addressed: 9 “In all this world, I pray thee, who Is virtuous, heroic, true? Firm in his vows, […]

The Rainbow and the Rose – E. Nesbit

NOW that I’ve nearly done my days, And grown too stiff to sweep or sew, I sit and think, till I’m amaze, About what lots of things I know: Things as I’ve found out one by one— And when I’m fast down in the clay, My knowing things and how they’re done Will all be […]

The Railway Children – E. Nesbit

They were not railway children to begin with. I don’t suppose they had ever thought about railways except as a means of getting to Maskelyne and Cook’s, the Pantomime, Zoological Gardens, and Madame Tussaud’s. They were just ordinary suburban children, and they lived with their Father and Mother in an ordinary red-brick-fronted villa, with coloured […]

The Rag and Bone Men – Algis Budrys

The other one—Charpantier, he called himself—he and I were going back up the hill to the Foundation, carrying our bags, when I happened to remark I didn’t think the Veld was sane anymore. (I call myself Maurer.) Charpantier said nothing for a moment. We kept walking, up the gravel path between the unimaginatively clipped hedges. […]

The Pygmy Planet – Jack Williamson

Unconsciously, he tensed the muscles of his six feet of lean, hard body. His crisp, flame-colored hair seemed to bristle; his blue eyes blazed. He clenched a brown hammer of a fist. Larry felt himself an energetic, red-blooded square peg, badly afflicted with the urge for adventure, miserably wedged in a round hole. It is […]

The Progress of Invention in the Nineteenth Century. – Edward W. Byrn

Standing on the threshold of the Twentieth Century, and looking back a hundred years, the Nineteenth Century presents in the field of invention a magnificent museum of thoughts crystallized and made immortal, not as passive gems of nature, but as potent, active, useful agencies of man. The philosophical mind is ever accustomed to regard all […]

The Prodigal Village; A Christmas Tale – Irving Bacheller

The day that Henry Smix met and embraced Gasoline Power and went up Main Street hand in hand with it is not yet forgotten. It was a hasty marriage, so to speak, and the results of it were truly deplorable. Their little journey produced an effect on the nerves and the remote future history of […]

The Princess – Baron Alfred Tennyson Tennyson

Sir Walter Vivian all a summer’s day Gave his broad lawns until the set of sun Up to the people: thither flocked at noon His tenants, wife and child, and thither half The neighbouring borough with their Institute Of which he was the patron. I was there From college, visiting the son,—the son A Walter […]

The Prince – Niccolò Machiavelli

Although there is little recorded of the youth of Machiavelli, the Florence of those days is so well known that the early environment of this representative citizen may be easily imagined. Florence has been described as a city with two opposite currents of life, one directed by the fervent and austere Savonarola, the other by […]

The Portrait of a Lady – Henry James

UNDER CERTAİN CİRCUMSTANCES there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea. There are circumstances in which, whether you partake of the tea or not—some people of course never do—the situation is in itself delightful. Those that I have in mind in beginning to unfold […]

The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth — Volume 8 (of 8) – William Wordsworth

The American Bibliography is almost entirely the work of Mrs. St. John of Ithaca, and is the result of laborious and careful critical research on her part. The French Bibliography is not so full. I have been assisted in it mainly by M. Legouis at Lyons, and by workers at the British Museum. I have […]

The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth — Volume 7 (of 8) – William Wordsworth

The only poems belonging to the years 1821-2 were the “Ecclesiastical Sonnets,” originally called “Ecclesiastical Sketches.” These were written at intervals, from 1821 onwards, but the great majority belong to 1821. They were first published in 1822, in three parts; 102 Sonnets in all. Ten were added in the edition of 1827, several others in […]

The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth — Volume 6 (of 8) – William Wordsworth

The Excursion—to which the fifth volume of this edition is devoted—has been assigned to the year 1814; since it was finished, and first published, in that year,—although commenced in 1795. During the earlier stages of its composition, this poem was known, in the Wordsworth household, as “The Pedlar”; and Dorothy Wordsworth tells us in one […]

The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth — Volume 5 (of 8) – William Wordsworth

[Something must now be said of this poem, but chiefly, as has been done through the whole of these notes, with reference to my personal friends, and especially to her who has perseveringly taken them down from my dictation. Towards the close of the first book, stand the lines that were first written,— beginning “Nine […]

The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth — Volume 4 (of 8) – William Wordsworth

[This person was Thomas Wilkinson, a Quaker by religious profession; by natural constitution of mind—or, shall I venture to say, by God’s grace? he was something better. He had inherited a small estate, and built a house upon it, near Yanwath, upon the banks of the Emont. I have heard him say that his heart […]
