Life of Sir Walter Raleigh

Life of Sir Walter Raleigh by Louise Creighton

Life of Sir Walter Raleigh by Louise Creighton

English soldier, explorer, courtier, writer, and poet was one of the most notable figures of the Elizabethan era. Louise Creighton’s short biography follows him from the wars in Spain to the jungles of Guiana. Ralegh sparkles in a court riddled with intrigue and constrained by attendance on the brilliant, imperious Elizabeth and on her successor, that rigid mediocrity, James. During his long confinement in the Tower of London, Ralegh conducted chemical experiments and wrote a ”History of the World.” Everyone knows that things did not end well for Sir Walter, but time has not tarnished the charisma of his life. Creighton writes, ”There was no field of activity then open to men into which he did not enter…In an age remarkable for its varied forms of intellectual vigour, he represents with wonderful many-sidedness the different interests which then absorbed men’s minds.’

The Argonautica

The Argonautica by Apollonius Rhodius

The Argonautica by Apollonius Rhodius

The story of how Jason and a group of famous heroes of Greece took to sea in the Argos has been told many times, before and after Apollonius of Rhodes, wrote his Argonautica, in the 3rd century b.C.. It is not only the oldest full version of the tale to arrive to our days, but also the only extant example of Hellenistic epic. This was already a popular myth by the times of Apollonius, who makes the story of how Jason and the Argonauts sail to Colchis in search of the Golden Fleece, and have to go through a lot of adventures to fulfill their task, a mix of simple narrative and scholarly catalog. The Argonautica had a deep impact on European literature as a whole.

The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights

The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights by Sir Thomas Malory

The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights by Sir Thomas Malory

In acceding to their request I wish to say that the book as now published is merely a word-for-word reprint of my early effort to help to popularise the Arthur legends.

It is little else than an abridgment of Sir Thomas Malory’s version of them as printed by Caxton—with a few additions from Geoffrey of Monmouth and other sources—and an endeavour to arrange the many tales into a more or less consecutive story.
