Walden (first published as Walden; or, Life in the Woods) is a book by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. The text is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and—to some degree—a manual for self-reliance...Le livre raconte la vie que Thoreau a passée dans une cabane pendant deux ans, deux mois et deux jours, dans la forêt appartenant à son ami et mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, jouxtant l'étang de Walden (Walden Pond), non loin de ses amis et de sa famille qui résidaient à Concord, dans le Massachusetts.

King Lear of Britain, elderly and wanting to retire from the duties of the monarchy, decides to divide his realm among his three daughters, and declares he will offer the largest share to the one who loves him most. The eldest, Goneril , speaks first, declaring her love for her father in fulsome terms. Moved by her flattery Lear proceeds to grant to Goneril her share as soon as she has finished her declaration, before Regan and Cordelia have a chance to speak. He then awards to Regan her share as soon as she has spoken. When it is finally the turn of his youngest and favorite daughter, Cordelia, at first she refuses to say anything ("Nothing, my Lord") and then declares there is nothing to compare her love to, nor words to properly express it; she speaks honestly but bluntly, which infuriates him. In his anger he disinherits Cordelia and divides her share between Regan and Goneril. Dans la grande salle du palais des rois de Grande-Bretagne, le vieux roi Lear réunit ses filles, leurs maris et son fidèle ami le comte de Kent. Il annonce son désir de se retirer du pouvoir et sa décision de diviser son royaume entre ses trois filles, Goneril mariée au duc d'Albany, Régane épouse de Cornouailles et Cordélia, la plus jeune, courtisée par le duc de Bourgogne et le roi de France. Blessé par cette réserve qui pique d'autant plus son orgueil qu'elle émane de son enfant préférée, Lear déshérite Cordélia, partage le royaume entre les deux autres sœurs, la chasse impitoyablement et annonce qu'il ira vivre alternativement sur les terres de Goneril et de Régane avec sa suite d'une centaine de chevaliers. Le comte de Kent, proche du roi, s'oppose à ce traitement injuste et tente de faire entendre raison au souverain qui, excédé, le bannit également. Apprenant l'infortune de Cordélia, le duc de Bourgogne renonce à ses vues mais le roi de France, sa passion raffermie par tant de vertus qu'il juge plus précieuses qu'une dot, annonce que Cordélia régnera sur la belle France où elle trouvera mieux que ce qu'elle a perdu.

Dr James Mortimer asks Sherlock Holmes to investigate the death of his friend, Sir Charles Baskerville. Sir Charles was found dead on the grounds of his Devonshire estate, Baskerville Hall, and Mortimer now fears for Sir Charles's nephew and sole heir, Sir Henry Baskerville, who is the new master of Baskerville Hall. The death was attributed to a heart attack, but Mortimer is suspicious, because Sir Charles died with an expression of horror on his face, and Mortimer noticed "the footprints of a gigantic hound" nearby. The Baskerville family has supposedly been under a curse since the era of the English Civil War when ancestor Hugo Baskerville allegedly offered his soul to the devil for help in abducting a woman and was reportedly killed by a giant spectral hound. Le docteur Mortimer rend visite à Sherlock Holmes et son ami le docteur Watson pour leur expliquer les circonstances étranges de la mort de son ami et patient, Sir Charles Baskerville. Le vieil homme au cœur fragile a succombé à une attaque cardiaque après une courte promenade nocturne dans les jardins du manoir, qui donne sur la lande brumeuse du Devonshire. Mortimer raconte à Holmes une légende vieille de plusieurs siècles qui court sur cette famille. Il lui montre un manuscrit daté de 1742 rapportant que Hugo Baskerville, un ancêtre cruel, aurait été égorgé par un chien démoniaque après avoir tenté de violer une jeune paysanne. Ce chien rôderait toujours sur la lande à la recherche des descendants des Baskerville.

The central character and narrator is 17-year-old David Balfour. His parents have recently died, and he is out to make his way in the world. He is given a letter by the minister of Essendean, Mr. Campbell, to be delivered to the House of Shaws in Cramond, where David's uncle, Ebenezer Balfour, lives. His uncle is also miserly, living on "parritch" and small ale, and the House of Shaws itself is partially unfinished and somewhat ruinous.Ebenezer asks David to get a chest from the top of a tower in the house but refuses to provide a lamp or candle. David is forced to scale the stairs in the dark and realises that not only is the tower unfinished in some places, but the steps simply end abruptly and fall into an abyss. David concludes that his uncle intended for him to have an "accident" so as not to have to give over his nephew's inheritance. En juin 1751 en Écosse, le jeune David Balfour suit les dernières volontés de son défunt père et prend la route du château de Shaws où demeure son dernier parent vivant, son oncle Ebenezer. David se rend bien vite compte que ce dernier tente de le spolier de son héritage, n'hésitant pas pour cela à attenter à sa vie. Mais avant d'avoir pu faire quoi que ce soit, David est enlevé et embarqué de force à bord du Covenant, un brick en partance pour Les Carolines. Voué à être vendu comme esclave dans une plantation, les jours s'écoulent à bord du navire et tout espoir semble perdu pour David. Le destin place alors sur sa route un allié providentiel en la personne d'Alan Breck Stewart, un fier Highlander jacobite, naufragé que le Covenant recueille à son bord.

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000; background-color: #ffffff} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} Milton's story has two narrative arcs, one about Satan (Lucifer) and the other following Adam and Eve. It begins after Satan and the other rebel angels have been defeated and banished to Hell, or, as it is also called in the poem, Tartarus. In Pandæmonium, the capital city of Hell, Satan employs his rhetorical skill to organize his followers; he is aided by Mammon and Beelzebub. Belial and Moloch are also present. At the end of the debate, Satan volunteers to corrupt the newly created Earth and God's new and most favoured creation, Mankind. He braves the dangers of the Abyss alone in a manner reminiscent of Odysseus or Aeneas. After an arduous traversal of the Chaos outside Hell, he enters God's new material World, and later the Garden of Eden. Lucifer, l’ange déchu, vient d’être vaincu par les armées divines. Avec son armée, il s’apprête à relancer une attaque contre le Ciel lorsqu’il entend parler d’une prophétie : une nouvelle espèce de créatures doit être formée par le Ciel. Il décide alors de partir seul en expédition. Sorti de l’enfer, il s’aventure dans le paradis, et trouve le nouveau monde. Après avoir facilement dupé l'ange Uriel en changeant d’apparence, il s’introduit dans le paradis et découvre Adam et Ève. Dieu l’apprend, mais décide de ne rien faire : il a créé l’homme libre, et lui accordera sa grâce quoi qu’il arrive… si toutefois il respecte la justice divine. Son Fils, trouvant le jugement sévère, supplie son Père de prendre sur lui les péchés des hommes, ce à quoi celui-ci consent.

'If the poet, in the words of +douard Glissant, is a "visionnaire du concret", this volume of close readings explores poetry as utterance situated between dream and reality without ascribing a mission to the poet or attempting to unearth hidden subtexts. These marvellously read poems follow the major currents of twentieth-century French and Francophone literature and go a long way to fulfilling the editors' desires to forge a new alliance between readers and poets.'-J Michael Dash, New York University 'This anthology will be a godsend to teachers and students and, indeed, to all lovers of modern French poetry. The editors' choice of poets and poems ranges from the powerfully canonical to the challengingly contemporary, and each of the commentators brings to their analysis a combination of deep and affectionate knowledge and illuminating new insights.'-Michael Worton, Vice-Provost and Fielden Professor of French Language and Literature, University College London
