These diverting stories offer the wit, whimsy, and imaginative gusto of one of the 19th century's most scintillating masters of the English language.

Описание: Writing in wonderfully descriptive and fluent prose, Sarah Orne Jewett, best-known for The Country of the Pointed Firs, was early encouraged by her father to write not about things, but to "write the things themselves just as they are." That she did so is clearly evident in this collection of sensitively written stories, regional sketches that celebrate the past, full of clearly delineated characters and carefully detailed natural and domestic settings. Her luminous descriptions of the landscape are apparent in the title story, commonly regarded as her finest single tale. Other stories focus on the rural lives of elderly women and their attempts to live with dignity and security. In "The Town Poor," the characters are resilient in their poverty and compassionate towards those in need. Themes of female friendship in "The Dulham Ladies" and "Miss Tempy's Watchers" are characteristic. This volume also includes "The Foreigner," "Miss Peck's Promotion," "The Passing of Sister Barsett," "Miss Esther's Guest," "The Guests of Mrs. Timms," and "The Courting of Sister Wisby." Widely regarded as the most distinguished American regionalist writer of the 19th century, Sarah Orne Jewett has been rediscovered and acknowledged as an American master. This outstanding collection of her short fiction will delight students of literature and women's studies as well as general readers.

Описание: In addition to Little Lord Fauntleroy, The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and other beloved classics of childhood, Frances Hodgson Burnett created a delightful legacy of short stories for children. This volume includes six of the best of these tales. "Racketty-Packetty House," the centerpiece of the collection, is a touching tale of a once-elegant dollhouse and its shabby inhabitants, happy creatures who love to dance. But the little girl who owns the dolls is tired of them, much preferring her new Tidy Castle dollhouse with its haughty, upperclass dolls, and her nurse wants to burn the Racketty-Packetty House. Children will love finding out what happens to the old house and its ragtag occupants. Also included here are "Behind the White Brick," a Lewis Carroll-like fantasy of a hidden world behind a chimney's brickwork; "The Story of Prince Fairyfoot," a fairy tale about a young man of royalty who, because of his tiny feet, is rejected by his parents; "Sara Crewe," an early version of A Little Princess; as well as "Little Saint Elizabeth" and The Proud Little Grain of Wheat." Heartwarming and instructive, these charming stories ― reprinted here complete and unabridged ― will enthrall anyone with a love of make-believe. They are sure to delight today's youngsters as much as they entertained children generations ago.
"Contains a number of excellent stories, including several considered Bierce's best. I have to say, all of them were quite good, and I was impressed at how so many of them are still terrifying and suspenseful over a hundred years after Bierce wrote them." -- Battered, Tattered, Yellowed & Creased Famed for the mordant wit and satire of his essays and newspaper columns, Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) also possessed a fascination with the macabre. His masterful tales of the supernatural bespeak an imagination generations ahead of its time, exhibiting impressionistic conceits of reality in which space and time expand and contract according to individual perception. This stimulating and provocative collection of twelve of Bierce's finest ghost and horror stories abounds in crimes of passion, restless specters seeking revenge, haunted houses, forewarnings of doom, and sound minds deranged by contact with the spirit world. Selections include "The Eyes of the Panther," a chilling account of a young woman's supernatural link to a beast of the forest; "A Watcher by the Dead," in which a madcap wager has ghastly consequences; "The Man and the Snake," a hallucinogenic encounter between serpent and human; "Moxon's Master," a nineteenth-century caveat against the coming Machine Age; the celebrated title story; and seven others.
