Desiree's Diary(Book One)

作者 : 德希蕾·克拉里

This book is the dairy of a French girl who lived in the time of Napoleon Bonaparte. She was a real person. So were others who come into her story. Their names appear in the history books of Europe; but there they are dead people ----- and in Desiree's diary they are alive.Here we can see, through a woman's eyes, how history was made. She was there. She knew the men and women who made it. She almost married Napoleon himself.No one really understood him. Not even Desiree. She hated his wars; but she never hated the man. He has no heart, she said. And she was sorry for him, because love and peace had no place in his life. In her own life she found true love, with Jean Bernadotte. But in those days a soldier's wife had little peace, especially if her husband dared to quarrel with Napoleon.Some people write their diaries every day. Others only write then when something important happens. Desiree's diary is of the second kind. It only covers the most important times in her life.The first half of her story is told in this book.

My Name is Red

作者 : 奥尔罕·帕慕克

You slew a man and then fell out with one another concerning him. —Koran, The Cow. The blind and the seeing are not equal. —Koran, The Creator. To God belongs the East and the West.Unlike many of his characters, Orhan Pamuk has never lived beyond the city where he was born, but in a city like Istanbul there are already hundreds of lifetimes of stories yet to be told. Still, at the bridge between Europe and Asia it can seem that almost much of the far away worlds has already passed through these famous narrows, and traces still lay collecting in the cities Byzantine alleyways. My Name Is Red is a ruminating mystery haunted by love, art, religion, and politics. It is infused with cultures, legends, history and philosophy that all drift through the narrative like wisps of smoke. The tense interplay between ancient traditions and human passions is brilliantly illustrated through intersecting stories of painting, romance, faith, and murder. Slowly, piece by piece, a variety of highly subjective first-person narrators build the story out of beguiling dialogue and enchanting tangents. Fascinatingly, the fragments all begin to fold in upon each other, gradually fusing into a single dramatic conclusion. Desolate winter in the ancient city profuse with rich textures and disparate voices comes to life with the passion, melancholy and elegant, evocative complexity of an Arabesque illumination or Byzantine mosaic.

作者 : 莎拉·沃特斯

From the author of the New York Times Notable Book Tipping the Velvet and the award-winning Affinity: a spellbinding, twisting tale of a great swindle, of fortunes and hearts won and lost, set in Victorian London among a family of thieves. Sue Trinder is an orphan, left as an infant in the care of Mrs. Sucksby, a baby farmer, who raised her with unusual tenderness, as if Sue were her own. Mrs. Sucksby's household, with its fussy babies calmed with doses of gin, also hosts a transient family of petty thieves-fingersmiths-for whom this house in the heart of a mean London slum is home. One day, the most beloved thief of all arrives-Gentleman, a somewhat elegant con man, who carries with him an enticing proposition for Sue: If she wins a position as the maid to Maud Lilly, a naïve gentlewoman, and aids Gentleman in her seduction, then they will all share in Maud's vast inheritance. Once the inheritance is secured, Maud will be left to live out her days in a mental hospital. With dreams of paying back the kindness of her adopted family, Sue agrees to the plan. Once in, however, Sue begins to pity her helpless mark and care for Maud Lilly in unexpected ways. . . . But no one and nothing is as it seems in this > Dickensian novel of thrills and surprises. The New York Times Book Review has called Sarah Waters a writer of consummate skill and The Seattle Times has praised her work as gripping, astute fiction that feeds the mind and the senses. Fingersmith marks a major leap forward in this young and brilliant career.

Into this wild abyss, The womb of nature and perhaps her grave, Of neither sea, nor shore, nor air, nor fire, But all these in their pregnant causes mixed Confusedly, and which thus must ever fight, Unless the almighty maker them ordain His dark materials to create more worlds, Into this wild abyss the wary fiend Stood on the brink of hell and looked a while, Pondering his voyage...—John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book II The Golden Compass forms the first part of a story in three volumes. The first volume is set in a universe like ours, but different in many ways. The second volume is set partly in the universe we know. The third volume will move between the universes.

The Ballad of the Sad Café and Other Stories

作者 : 卡森·麦卡勒斯

本书所收录的小说,其背景则呈现为多样性,有都市生活的,有大学生活的,也有家庭生活的,但其反映的主旨似仍在人物的内心世界,以及那种没来由的孤独感。伤心咖啡馆之歌首先,爱情是发生在两个人之间的一种共同的经验——不过,说它是共同的经验并不意味着它在有关的两个人身上所引起的反响是同等的。世界上有爱者,也有被爱者,这是截然不同的两类人。往往,被爱者仅仅是爱者心底平静地蕴积了好久的那种爱情的触发剂。每一个恋爱的人都多少知道这一点。他在灵魂深处感到他的爱恋是一种很孤独的感情。他逐渐体会到一种新的、陌生的孤寂,正是这种发现使他痛苦。因此,对于恋爱者来说只有一件事可做。他必须尽可能深地把他的爱情禁铜在心中;他必须为自己创造一个全然是新的内心世界——个认真的、奇异的、完全为他单独拥有的世界。我还得添上一句,我们所说的这样的恋爱者倒不一定得是一个正在攒钱准备买结婚戒指的年轻人——这个恋爱者可以是男人、女人、儿童,总之,可以是世界上任何一个人。 至于被爱者.也可以是任何一种类型的人。最最粗野的人也可以成为爱情的触发剂。一个颤巍巍的老爷子可能仍然钟情于2o年前某日下午他在奇霍街头所见到的陌生姑娘。牧师也许会爱上一个堕落的女人。被爱的人可能人品很坏,油头滑脑,染有不良恶习。是的,恋爱者也能像别人一样对一切认识得清清楚楚——可是这丝毫也不影响他的感情的发展。一个顶顶平庸的人可以成为一次沼泽毒罂粟般热烈、狂放、美丽的恋爱的对象。一个好人也能成为—次放荡、堕落的恋爱的触发剂,一个絮絮叨叨的疯子没准能使某人头脑里出现一曲温柔、淳美的牧歌。因此. 任何一次恋爱的价值与质量纯粹取决于恋爱者本身。 正因如此,我们大多数人都宁愿爱而不愿被爱。几乎每一个都愿意充当恋爱者。道理非常简单,人们朦朦胧胧地感到,被人爱的这种处境,对于许多人来说,都是无法忍受的。被爱者惧怕而且憎恨爱者,这也是有充分理由的。因为爱者总是想把他的所爱者剥得连灵魂都裸露出来。爱者疯狂地渴求与被爱者发生任何一种可能的关系,纵使这种经验只能给他自身带来痛苦。

Stories of Red Hanrahan

作者 : 叶芝

Hanrahan, that was never long in one place, was back again among the villages that are at the foot of Slieve Echtge, Illeton and Scalp and Ballylee, stopping sometimes in one house and sometimes in another, and finding a welcome in every place for the sake of the old times and of his poetry and his learning. There was some silver and some copper money in the little leather bag under his coat, but it was seldom he needed to take anything from it, for it was little he used, and there was not one of the people that would have taken payment from him. His hand had grown heavy on the blackthorn he leaned on, and his cheeks were hollow and worn, but so far as food went, potatoes and milk and a bit of oaten cake, he had what he wanted of it; and it is not on the edge of so wild and boggy a place as Echtge a mug of spirits would be wanting, with the taste of the turf smoke on it. He would wander about the big wood at Kinadife, or he would sit through many hours of the day among the rushes about Lake Belshragh, listening to the streams from the hills, or watching the shadows in the brown bog pools; sitting so quiet as not to startle the deer that came down from the heather to the grass and the tilled fields at the fall of night. . . .

The Poetry of Pablo Neruda

作者 : 巴勃罗·聂鲁达

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973)Pablo Neruda was born in Parall, Chile. He studied in Santiago in the twenties. From 1927 to 1945 he was the Chilean consul in Rangoon, in Java, and then in Barcelona. He joined the Communist Party after the Second World War. Between 1970 and 1973 he served in Allende’s Chilean Government as ambassador to Paris. He died shortly after the coup that ended the Allende Government.Neruda's career as a poet began with love poetry and ended with love poetry. One of his very last works, written only days before his death, is The End, a love poem to [his wife] Matilde. There were, of course, changes; there were deviations during the period of Residence on Earth, for example; there were turns and innovations during the period of political and epic poetry that began in the late thirties and culminated in 1950 with Canto General, but there was also a remarkable continuity. Erotic poetry and love poetry were for Neruda an important, essential part of his poetic life.Pablo Neruda was one of the most prolific poets of our century. To trace the development of even one aspect of his poetic world is far from easy. Yet in the case of his erotic poetry and his love poetry the outline of that development is clear enough. The early Neruda, from his first published book, Crepusculario, and then especially in Twenty Poems, is a sensualist and a materialist in his approach to love and woman…. [In Twenty Poems] Neruda intensifies the complete fusion between woman and Nature. Joy and despair, like Marisol and Marisombra, mingle and alternate in this book, but whatever the emotion of the moment, the poet is constant in his identification of woman with Nature, in his use of Nature imagery to describe woman, and in his conception of woman as a vehicle for a return to Nature. In these richly sensual poems, the style is still on the whole modern Romantic with symbolist overtones and the first few hints of the newer, more disturbing poetic styles. Yet they remain constructive poems, in that they are organized around experiences in which real human beings, Neruda himself and the women he loved, provide a stabilizing platform upon which each poem is built.

作者 : 亨利·大卫·梭罗

Walden (also known as Life in the Woods) by Henry David Thoreau is one of the best-known non-fiction books written by an American. Published in 1854, it details Thoreau's life for two years and two months in second-growth forest around the shores of Walden Pond, not far from his friends and family in Concord, Massachusetts. Walden was written so that the stay appears to be a year, with expressed seasonal divisions. Thoreau called it an experiment in simple living.Walden is neither a novel nor a true autobiography, but a social critique of the Western World, with each chapter heralding some aspect of humanity that needed to be either renounced or praised.
