    Monday or Tuesday

    Virginia Woolf

    A stylistically innovative volume of short stories from the groundbreaking author of Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and Orlando.   First presented as one volume in 1921, Monday or Tuesday was the only collection of stories Virginia Woolf published in her lifetime. Written in her experimental, stream-of-consciousness style, these eight unconventional stories eschew traditional plot and character development in favor of interior thoughts, emotions, memories, and associations.   From a heron’s in-flight perceptions in “Monday or Tuesday” to a ghost couple searching for treasure in “A Haunted House,” from a meditation on color as a catalyst for imagination and emotional connections in “Blue and Green” to the invented stories of a narrator on a train observing a fellow passenger in “An Unwritten Novel,” Woolf’s poetic explorations take readers in directions previously unexamined, revealing an intensity of feeling and depth of insight that would continue to characterize her later work.   Michael Cunningham, author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel The Hours, has said of Woolf: “She was doing with language something like what Jimi Hendrix does with a guitar.” Taken together, these lyrical and evocative stories create a rich mosaic of the artist’s radically unique sensibility.   Monday or Tuesday includes“A Haunted House,” “A Society,” “Monday or Tuesday,”“An Unwritten Novel,” “The String Quartet,” “Blue and Green,” “Kew Gardens,” and “The Mark on the Wall.”  This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    Euripides Euripides

    Euripides is rightly lauded as one of the great dramatists of all time.  In his lifetime, he wrote over 90 plays and although only 18 have survived they reveal the scope and reach of his genius.  Euripides is identified with many theatrical innovations that have influenced drama all the way down to modern times, especially in the representation of traditional, mythical heroes as ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.  As would be expected from a life lived 2,500 years ago, details of it are few and far between.  Accounts of his life, written down the ages, do exist but whether much is reliable or surmised is open to debate.  Most accounts agree that he was born on Salamis Island around 480 BC, to mother Cleito and father Mnesarchus, a retailer who lived in a village near Athens. Upon the receipt of an oracle saying that his son was fated to win "crowns of victory", Mnesarchus insisted that the boy should train for a career in athletics.  However, what is clear is that athletics was not to be the way to win crowns of victory.  Euripides had been lucky enough to have been born in the era as the other two masters of Greek Tragedy; Sophocles and Æschylus. It was in their footsteps that he was destined to follow.  His first play was performed some thirteen years after the first of Socrates plays and a mere three years after Æschylus had written his classic The Oristria.  Theatre was becoming a very important part of the Greek culture. The Dionysia, held annually, was the most important festival of theatre and second only to the fore-runner of the Olympic games, the Panathenia, held every four years, in appeal.  Euripides first competed in the City Dionysia, in 455 BC, one year after the death of Æschylus, and, incredibly, it was not until 441 BC that he won first prize. His final competition in Athens was in 408 BC. The Bacchae and Iphigenia in Aulis were performed after his death in 405 BC and first prize was awarded posthumously. Altogether his plays won first prize only five times.  Euripides was also a great lyric poet. In Medea, for example, he composed for his city, Athens, "the noblest of her songs of praise". His lyric skills however are not just confined to individual poems: "A play of Euripides is a musical whole....one song echoes motifs from the preceding song, while introducing new ones."  Much of his life and his whole career coincided with the struggle between Athens and Sparta for hegemony in Greece but he didn't live to see the final defeat of his city.  Euripides fell out of favour with his fellow Athenian citizens and retired to the court of Archelaus, king of Macedon, who treated him with consideration and affection.  At his death, in around 406BC, he was mourned by the king, who, refusing the request of the Athenians that his remains be carried back to the Greek city, buried him with much splendor within his own dominions. His tomb was placed at the confluence of two streams, near Arethusa in Macedonia, and a cenotaph was built to his memory on the road from Athens towards the Piraeus.

    Connecticut Yankee in King...

    While Mark Twain is most often identified with his childhood home on the Mississippi, he wrote many of his enduring classics during the years he lived in Hartford, Connecticut. He had come a long way from Hannibal when he focused his irreverent humor on medieval tales, and wrote A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. The hit on the head that sent protagonist Hank Morgan back through 13 centuries did not affect his natural resourcefulness. Using his knowledge of an upcoming eclipse, Hank escapes a death sentence, and secures an important position at court. Gradually, he introduces 19th century technology so the clever Morgan soon has an easy life. That does not stop him from making disparaging, tongue-in-cheek remarks about the inequalities and imperfections of life in Camelot. Twain weaves many of the well-known Arthurian characters into his story, and he includes a pitched battle between Morgan's men and the nobility.

    Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms. 
    Written amidst great personal tragedy in Charlotte Bronte’s life, her second novel after Jane Eyre looks toward a complicated, but brighter future. Set in a rapidly industrializing England in a time of social and economic unrest, Shirley bridges two very different worlds. Caroline Helstone, reeling from the loss of her father, abandoned by her mother, has been doomed to a life of poverty. To make matters worse, the only man she has feelings for, Robert Moore, must marry into wealth or risk losing his family mill. Robert proposes to Shirley, a woman set free by her inheritance and newly-found wealth and independence. The path towards matrimony winds as people seek happiness and enlightenment on the dawn of an exciting—and anxious—tomorrow. Part compelling romance, part searing social commentary, Shirley, following the tremendous success of Jane Eyre, is a revolutionary novel.
