Summary

Lou Witt is twenty-five years old, not beautiful, but her knowledge of foreign languages and her gypsy vagabond air make her attractive. Her encounter with a Welsh thoroughbred horse, St. Mawr, changes her fortunes. One day, Lou decides to leave her marriage and cynical post-war England behind her and, together with her mother, a woman with a stubborn and not at all meek personality, to reach a remote ranch in the mountains of New Mexico. Accompanying the two protagonists will be Lewis, a rough-around-the-edges stableman who won't let anything stand in his way. Written in the summer of 1924, while Lawrence was on the American ranch he bought with his wife, "St. Mawr" is considered one of the small masterpieces in which the author managed to infuse all his desire for adventure and freedom.

    Booker Taliaferro Washington (April 5, 1856 - November 14, 1915) was an American educator, author, orator, and adviser to several presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African American community and of the contemporary black elite. Washington was from the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants. They were newly oppressed in the South by disenfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws enacted in the post-Reconstruction Southern states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.THE CULTIVATION OF STABLE HABITS: I am going to speak with you a few minutes this evening upon the matter of stability. I want you to understand when you start out in school, that no individual can accomplish anything unless he means to stick to what he undertakes.

    'Christs in the Tirol' is more of an essay on this peculiar art form than a short story, it is included in this series as forming part of Lawrence's record of his wanderings in Europe and partly as a record of Lawrence's attitude to religion and death and foreshadowing his own eventual suffering and death.

    New translation of The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka.Poor Gregor Samsa! This guy wakes up one morning to discover that he's become a "monstrous vermin". The first pages of The Metamorphosis where Gregor tries to communicate through the bedroom door with his family, who think he's merely being lazy, is vintage screwball comedy. Indeed, scholars and readers alike have delighted in Kafka's gallows humor and matter-of-fact handling of the absurd and the terrifying.But it is one of the most enigmatic stories of all time, with an opening sentence that's unparalleled in all of literature.

    The Story of the Amulet is a novel for children, written in 1906 by E. Nesbit. It is the final part of a trilogy of novels that also includes Five Children and It (1902) and The Phoenix and the Carpet (1904). In it the children re-encounter the Psammead—the "it" in Five Children and It. As it no longer grants wishes to the children, however, its capacity is mainly advisory in relation to the children's other discovery, the Amulet, thus following a formula successfully established in The Phoenix and the Carpet.
