    H.G. Wells' attempt to make sense of World War I. It begins with a lighthearted account of an American visiting England for the first time, but the outbreak of war changes everything. Day by day and month by month, Wells chronicles the unfolding events and public reaction as witnessed by the inhabitants of one house in rural Essex. Each of the characters tries in a different way to keep their bearings in a world suddenly changed beyond recognition. This book was published in 1916 while the war was still in progress, so no clear resolution was possible. Wells did not know how long the war would last or which side would ultimately win, but he hoped that somehow, something good might eventually come of it.

    A gifted American artist finds fame, fortune, and tragedy in Europe in this classic tale. Working in obscurity, sculptor Roderick Hudson finds a generous patron in Rowland Mallet, an art aficionado so captivated by the young man’s work, he offers to take Hudson with him to Europe. Mallet soon falls in love with Miss Mary Garland, a distant cousin of Hudson’s who lives with the family and tends to his aging mother. Unfortunately, Hudson has already proposed to Mary.   In Rome, Hudson’s unparalleled talents bring him accolades and admiration, placing Mallet in a confounding predicament when his protégée begins to entertain women other than Mary, including a beauty betrothed to a prince. Two serious and potentially devastating love triangles form as Hudson struggles to balance his artistic pursuits with his insatiable lust for life.   Part tragedy, part love story, Roderick Hudson is one of the finest novels ever written about art and an inspiration for many a classic bildungsroman, including James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
