The Wings of the Dove + The Ambassadors + What Maisie Knew + The Turn of the Screw (4 Unabridged Classics) by Henry James Summary

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Wings of the Dove + The Ambassadors + What Maisie Knew + The Turn of the Screw (4 Unabridged Classics)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Wings of the Dove is a 1902 novel by Henry James. This novel tells the story of Milly Theale, an American heiress stricken with a serious disease, and her effect on the people around her. Some of these people befriend Milly with honorable motives, while others are more self-interested. The Ambassadors is a 1903 novel by Henry James, originally published as a serial in the North American Review (NAR). This dark comedy, one of the masterpieces of James's final period, follows the trip of protagonist Lewis Lambert Strether to Europe in pursuit of Chad, his widowed fiancée's supposedly wayward son; he is to bring the young man back to the family business, but he encounters unexpected complications. The third-person narrative is told exclusively from Strether's point of view. What Maisie Knew is a novel by Henry James, first published as a serial in the Chap-Book and in the New Review in 1897 and then as a book later that year. The story of the sensitive daughter of divorced, irresponsible parents, What Maisie Knew has great contemporary relevance as an unflinching account of a wildly dysfunctional family. The book is also a masterly technical achievement by James, as it follows the title character from earliest childhood to precocious maturity. The Turn of the Screw, originally published in 1898, is a ghost story novella written by Henry James. Due to its ambiguous content, it became a favourite text of academics who subscribe to New Criticism. Henry James ( 1843 – 1916) was an American-born British writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.

On Wings Of A Dove by Jose Ellis Summary

The dragons of the past came flooding my soul like an unexpected tornado on an already saturated soil, uprooting everything in its path. It engulfed my already languishing soul, enveloping me in an inferno that threatened to relinquish my very existence. Suddenly from deep within my innermost being like raindrops on a sun-parched earth, something bellowed; live the dream! Like a butterfly rising from its darkened pupa, I took pen in hand and started to write: as stories from my daunting past flooded my soul creating a resilience that told me that life has only just begun. Be still my soul! "The Lord is on my side Look to thy God To order and provide He constant will remain" (Jose Ellis)

Reading with a Difference by Arthur F. Marotti Summary

"Reading with a Difference is a collection of eighteen essays that examines how issues of gender, race, and cultural identity inform texts from the seventeenth century to the present. Together the contributions document recent significant shifts occurring in the theoretical approach to the texts they study and illustrate how shifts in each of these categories affect how the others are viewed." "The first section of this anthology explores the notion that identity - particularly gender identity - is a cultural construct. The essays in the second section consider ways in which race and gender intersect with cultural identity and how encounters between different cultures challenge any identity constructed in isolation." "First published in the journal Criticism, these essays offer no blueprint for reading. Instead they encourage a rereading of canonical texts and a questioning of how these texts face matters of gender, race, and cultural identity; how they respond to the differences and the incongruities within the cultures from which they arise; and to which they speak."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

On the Wings of a Dove, sub-titled, Grandmother Tales is a charming little children's book beautifully illustrated and elegantly written. This enchanting collection of folk tales from South India is based on South Indian oral tradition, passed down from generation to generation, by word of mouth and told to the author when he was a young boy by his mother..

The refreshing descriptions of nature: woodlands, meadows, animals, birds and insects are designed to bring children closer to nature and to make them appreciative of things around them that are unique in color and design. In the first story, the author tells the tale of two dove sisters, Kutty and Kuttathy who lived in the beautiful dove kingdom, Kanaka Puri. The bond between them is a perfect example of sisterly love. Unfortunately, an action in a hurry without foresight, severed the bond of love and affection and plunged the sisters into sorrow. The Firefly imagines the geneses of one of nature's simple wonders, one that has fascinated children through the ages. The story is replete with an original FIREFLY song. Manu the Wicked Fisherman is an unforgettable story about the struggle between good and evil, and how good triumphs.

Superdove by Courtney Humphries Summary

Why do we see pigeons as lowly urban pests and how did they become such common city dwellers? Courtney Humphries traces the natural history of the pigeon, recounting how these shy birds that once made their homes on the sparse cliffs of sea coasts came to dominate our urban public spaces. While detailing this evolution, Humphries introduces us to synanthropy: The concept that animals can become dependent on humans without ceasing to be wild; they can adapt to the cityscape as if it were a field or a forest. Superdove simultaneously explores the pigeon's cultural transformation, from its life in the dovecotes of ancient Egypt to its service in the trenches of World War I, to its feats within the pigeon-racing societies of today. While the dove is traditionally recognized as a symbol of peace, the pigeon has long inspired a different sort of fetishistic devotion from breeders, eaters, and artists—and from those who recognized and exploited the pigeon's astounding abilities. Because of their fecundity, pigeons were symbols of fertility associated with Aphrodite, while their keen ability to find their way home made them ideal messengers and even pilots. Their usefulness largely forgotten, today's pigeons have become as ubiquitous and reviled as rats. But Superdove reveals something more surprising: By using pigeons for our own purposes, we humans have changed their evolution. And in doing so, we have helped make pigeons the ideal city dwellers they are today. In the tradition of Rats, the book that made its namesake rodents famous, Superdove is the fascinating story of the pigeon's journey from the wild to the city—the home they'll never leave.
