A Political Romance

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

A Political Romance is a 1759 novel by Laurence Sterne, author of Tristram Shandy. The first work written by Sterne might be labelled a roman à clef or a cronique scandaleuse, which were so popular at the beginning of the eighteenth century. However, even these more suitable names do not do justice to the richness and slipperin...

The Forfeit

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

A companionable silence prevailed in the room. At intervals it was broken, but only by the rustle of paper or the striking of a match. The heavy breathing, almost amounting to a snore, of one of the two men, and the inarticulate protests of a laboring "rocker" chair--these things were only a part of it.

Morton

Cate: Short Stories  Author:Nathaniel Ames 

Bel and the Dragon's chaplains were More moderate than these by far: For they, poor knaves, were glad to cheat, To get their wives and children meat; But these will not be fobb'd off so, They must have wealth and power too; Or else with blood and desolation They'll tear it out o' th' heart o' th' nation.-- HUDIBRAS.

Hidden Gold

Cate: Short Stories  Author:Wilder Anthony

His Masterpiece

Cate: Short Stories  Author:Emile Zola 

'HIS MASTERPIECE,' which in the original French bears the title of _L'Oeuvre_, is a strikingly accurate story of artistic life in Paris during the latter years of the Second Empire. Amusing at times, extremely pathetic and even painful at others, it not only contributes a necessary element to the Rougon-Macquart series of novels--a ser...

The Serio-Comic Governess

Cate: Short Stories  Author:Israel Zangwill 

Nelly O'Neill had her day in those earlier and quieter reaches of the Victorian era when the privilege of microscopic biography was reserved for the great and the criminal classes, and when the Bohemian celebrity (who is perhaps a cross between the two) was permitted to pass--like a magic-lantern slide--from obscurity to oblivion throu...

The Big Bow Mystery

Cate: Short Stories  Author:Israel Zangwill 

On a memorable morning of early December, London opened its eyes on a frigid grey mist. There are mornings when King Fog masses his molecules of carbon in serried squadrons in the city, while he scatters them tenuously in the suburbs; so that your morning train may bear you from twilight to darkness. But to-day the enemy's manoeuvring ...

Oowikapun: How the Gospel Reached the Nelson River Indians

Cate: Short Stories  Author:Egerton Ryerson Young 

That Oowikapun was unhappy, strangely so, was evident to all in the Indian village. New thoughts deeply affecting him had in some way or other entered into his mind, and he could not but show that they were producing a great change in him.
