Download or read book Selected Stories of Robert Louis Stevenson written by Robert Louis Stevenson and published by Prabhat Prakashan. This book was released on 2021-01-19 with total page 191 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Selected Stories of Robert Louis Stevenson: There is nothing more disenchanting to man than to be shown the springs and mechanism of any art. All our arts and occupations lie wholly on the surface; it is on the surface that we perceive their beauty, fitness, and significance; and to pry below is to be appalled by their emptiness and shocked by the coarseness of the strings and pulleys. In a similar way, psychology itself, when pushed to any nicety, discovers an abhorrent baldness, but rather from the fault of our analysis than from any poverty native to the mind. And perhaps in æsthetics the reason is the same: those disclosures which seem fatal to the dignity of art seem so perhaps only in the proportion of our ignorance; and those conscious and unconscious artifices which it seems unworthy of the serious artist to employ were yet, if we had the power to trace them to their springs, indications of a delicacy of the sense finer than we conceive, and hints of ancient harmonies in nature. This ignorance at least is largely irremediable.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It chanced during one winter, a few years ago, that our cities were bent on discussing the theory of the Age. By an odd coincidence, four or five noted men were each reading a discourse to the citizens of Boston or New York, on the Spirit of the Times. It so happened that the subject had the same prominence in some remarkable pamphlets and journals issued in London in the same season. To me, however, the question of the times resolved itself into a practical question of the conduct of life. How shall I live? We are incompetent to solve the times. Our geometry cannot span the huge orbits of the prevailing ideas, behold their return, and reconcile their opposition. We can only obey our own polarity. ‘Tis fine for us to speculate and elect our course, if we must accept an irresistible dictation.

Book excerpt: First published by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in 1818, History, Manners, and Customs of the Indian Nations provides an account of the Lenni Lenape and other tribes in the mid-Atlantic region, looking at their history and relations with other tribes and settlers, as well as their spiritual beliefs, government and politics, education, language, social institutions, dress, food, and other customs. The text, written by the Reverend John Heckewelder, a Moravian missionary based in Ohio and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, includes the author s observations, anecdotes, and advice, preserving not only his knowledge about the Indian nations in the eighteenth century but also his perspective, as a missionary and settler, on Native Americans and the often-fraught relationships between the tribes and European settlers. This version of the text, published in 1876, contains an introduction and notes by the Reverend William C. Reichel as well as a glossary of Lenape words and phrases and letters between the author and the then-president of the American Philosophical Society concerning the study of the Indian nations and their languages."

This book was released on 2020-12-08 with total page 10 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Essay from the year 2020 in the subject Literature - Asia, , language: English, abstract: This paper deals with four major short stories of Ruskin Bond where railway station is the setting and Bond attempts to build private relations in public atmosphere. I have not specifically dealt with space theory, but certain concepts like Auge’s idea of non-place, Tuan’s meaning of existence, and the relation between man and environment, which were necessary while justifying the tendency of the author to transform the railway station into a private place for expressing his character’s personal desires.The bond of human relationships emphasizes Bond’s understanding of the human mentality, nature, thoughts, and behaviour. Bond’s stories display human feelings like affection, care, kind heartedness, insecurities, sorrow, and disgust. As his art is often referred to as autobiographical, his characters are real and we can find them in our neighbourhood. The incomparable way in which he alters the unexciting, dull things in our everybody life into something really striking and interesting fascinate not only the common reader but also the literary world. Travelling and communication with masses is equally important for humanity which makes one socially upgraded and sometimes may give birth to inventive artists like Ruskin Bond.
