  • The Man in Lower Ten is written by Mary Roberts Rinehart and was initially published in 1909. Nevertheless, it is still extremely readable today and offers a fascinating glimpse into a period that is nearly a century removed from our own while maintaining a timeless emotional tone. the first detective book to top bestseller charts across the country. Lawrence, an attorney-in-law, gets framed after he wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, in the wrong bed, with the wrong clothing on, and with his suitcase. He was on his way to deliver important documents related to a criminal case. Blakely is aware that he must track down the genuine criminal before being arrested, but regrettably, our hero is not your typical tough-guy hero. The first book ever published by Mary Roberts Rinehart, possibly the best American mystery author of her generation, is The Man in Lower Ten. It moves at breakneck speed while fusing adventure, suspense, terror, and mystery. The Circular Staircase (1908), which more or less popularized the spinster "Had I but Known" style most generally associated with the author, was Mary Roberts Rinehart's (1876-1958) debut book, but it didn't come out between hard covers until the year after.
  • The fourth and last of Nathaniel Hawthorne's four main romances is The Marble Faun: Or, The Romance of Monte Beni, also known in Britain as Transformation. Four primary characters-Miriam, Hilda, Kenyon, and Donatello-are the focus of this relationship.Miriam is a stunning painter who has no idea about her history. She is likened to several other women throughout the book, including Eve, Beatrice Cenci, Judith, and Cleopatra. A strange, menacing figure who is Miriam's "evil genius" throughout life is after her. Hilda is a good-hearted copycat. Both the Virgin Mary and the white dove are used to compare her. Despite having a soft heart, she may become stern due to her straightforward, unbending moral ideals. Hilda and Miriam are frequently compared.Kenyon is a sculptor who embodies humanist rationalism. He treasures his romantic attachment to Hilda. The Count of Monte Beni, Donatello, is in love with Miriam and is frequently likened to Adam. The marble Faun of Praxiteles by Donatello remarkably resembles it, and the story plays on the protagonists' suspicion that the Count could be a relative of the old Faun. However, even in the novel's final chapters and postscript, Hawthorne refrains from making a firm declaration.
  • Irish author Katherine Cecil Thurston's book The Masquerader was originally released in 1904. After the fog-filled night, Chilcote awoke at nine in the morning and watched his man Allsopp sneak across the room, setting the salver and his early cup of tea on the table next to the bed. Since the time he woke up, it had lingered with a hazy persistence, but in the bright morning light, it appeared to stand out with an even greater oddity. Loder first encountered the bitterness of life painfully on the night Chilcote returned to his house. The fact that sentimentality had no place in the man's temperament was indicative of his character. Though they were hidden, sentiments were present, but he outright rejected sentimentalities. Due an unfortunate circumstance, Lillian Astrupp was escorted into the morning room at Grosvenor Square where Eve Chilcote had left an accusatory telegram on the bureau. What purpose had Lillian served by spending those alone times? One solution came to Loder's thoughts. Lillian was not the type of lady to pass up an opportunity, no matter how big or small the area was at her disposal.
  • British author Arthur Conan Doyle's collection of short stories titled The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes was originally released in the latter part of 1893 under the year 1894. It was first released by G. Newnes Ltd. in the UK and Harper & Brothers in the US in February 1894. Following The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, it was the second anthology to feature the consulting detective Sherlock Holmes. It featured Sidney Paget's illustrations, the same as the first. The Adventures numbers 13 to 24 were the titles of the twelve tales when they were first published in The Strand Magazine in December 1892 and December 1893. The subtitle "XXIV.-The Adventure of the Final Problem" was used when "The Final Problem" was released, for example. With the exception of "The Final Problem," which first appeared in McClure's Magazine, all of the pieces were first published in Harper's Weekly in the United States. He was inspired by reader demand to write The Hound of the Baskervilles, a Holmes tale that takes place before "The Final Problem," in 1901-1922. The aftermath of "The Final Problem," in which it is revealed that Holmes actually survived, serves as the opening episode of a new series the following year called The Return of Sherlock Holmes.
  • Under the working title "Number Thirteen," American author Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote the science fiction book The Monster Men in 1913. A Man Without a Soul was the title under which it initially appeared in print in the November 1913 edition. Professor Arthur Maxon of Cornell University visits a secluded Pamarung Island in the East Indies with his daughter Virginia. The first experiment escaped and kidnapped Virginia. In his fanatical preoccupation, Maxon aims to marry the perfect human being produced by Experiment Number Thirteen to Virginia. After failing in his effort to use Jack against Maxon, Jack von Horn hands over the other eleven monsters to the pirate Muda Saffir. Virginia is taken off by Von Horn, while Budadreen and his gang steal Maxon's riches. The monsters are subdued and tamed by Jack, but Maxon turns against him and chases him.After overcoming several Dayaks, Jack's band finally finds itself in the company of an orangutan group. After that, to keep the location of the riches a secret, von Horn murders his friends. Virginia is ultimately informed by Von Horn that Jack is Number Thirteen, but she still chooses to love Jack. The hunt comes to an end at the location of the unearthed "prize," when von Horn's decapitated body is discovered next to the unlocked box.
  • Sisters is the story of four young women coming of age on a rural property in northern Victoria. But it is also the story of Guthrie Carey, a young sailor whose life crosses paths with the sisters at various points. The perils and pitfalls of love and marriage dominate the story. It would seem that Cambridge had a pretty cynical view and very low expectations for happiness within the confines of marriage. We have an unhappy marriage with a power imbalance, a domestic goddess whose life is taken up with child bearing and child rearing, an adulteress, a nursemaid, a man still in love with his former wife's ghost and a lonely old, man dreaming of a love that will never be!If Sisters is a good representation of her work, I'll definitely look for more. She doesn't write as broadly or deeply as Henry Handel Richardson, but she does take on women's concerns and class consciousness in a period when this wasn't really the thing to do in writing. The conversation and descriptions in Sisters are fantastic. Particularly well-developed characters like Debbie and Carey will stay with me for a very long time."
  • Some Reminiscences Since the beginning of time, sound has had more power than sense. Mankind should be more impressionable than reflective. Of course, the accent needs to be corrected. the large lung, the resonant, or the delicate vocal cords. He wrote down ideas, proverbs, and musings on ivory tablets, which fate has preserved for posterity. This is more of a private concern, affecting the individual who created the work, and maybe hinted at in a book when a private remark is written in the margin of a public page. No artist can be blamed for being afraid to take a risk that only fools race to take and only geniuses dare to take on without consequence. If the outward manifestation of feeling does not change, it will inevitably fade into disdain or contempt. Even at the expense of success, having a sense of decency is simply having a sense of one's own dignity, which is inextricably linked to the dignity of one's profession. All objectives are acceptable, with the exception of those that capitalize on human suffering or credulity. Ambitions in the arts and sciences are acceptable, even when they go above and beyond the bounds of cautious sanity. Even worse for the artist if they are insane. It's not insane to strive to go further.
  • Stories of King Arthur and His Knights : Chivalrous deed stories were among the most popular tales of five or six hundred years ago. Since printed books weren't around throughout the reigns of the first three King Edwards, these tales weren't described in any books. Arthur and his knights of the Round Table are by far the most well-liked figures in these early chivalric tales.The pursuit of the Holy Grail by Sir Galahad proves beyond all doubt that those with ""pure hearts"" are blessed because they will be able to perceive God, as the poet's ideal represented the essence of reality.The twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth centuries are when chivalry flourished most. Neither the German Nibelungen Lied nor the texts of the ancient Anglo-Saxons have any indication of its unusual concepts. The chivalrous customs and fantasies of the fourteenth century started to look silly, and subsequently, probably in part due to the mockery of the classic book ""Don Quixote,"" chivalry was laughed out of existence. Le Morte Darthur by Sir Thomas Malory is among the best of the older English classics. It was published in 1470, and Sir Thomas Caxton ensured its immortality fifteen years later. Generations of poets and authors have drawn inspiration from it continuously ever since.
  • Summer : With her routine in the quiet village of North Dormer, Charity Royall is becoming bored. Lucius Harney, a visiting architect, makes an unwanted approach to her. Mr. Royall decides not to marry Charity and kicks Lucius out of his home. After leaving the city, Lucius moves to a nearby village. A Nettleton abandoned home is where Charity and Lucius, two lovers, first meet. Charity experiences panic after spotting Lucius at a social gathering with Annabel Balch, a member of the local society. Charity suffers verbal abuse from Mr. Royall, which makes her feel extremely ashamed and drives her to fall into Lucius' arms. Despite committing to marry Charity, Lucius takes a leave of absence to relocate.Charity notices the poverty that has affected the locals as she and her family are vacationing at the Mountain. She promises that she will take all necessary steps to prevent her child from growing up in poverty. She goes back home intending to support her kid by becoming a prostitute. She runs across Mr. Royall again along the road, and they decide to get married.
  • Rudyard Kipling's collection of short stories is titled The Day's Work. The Day's Work does not contain any poetry in between the several stories, unlike many of Kipling's previous collections. The general subject is one of labour and struggle, whether it is constructing a bridge, combating a famine, or watching horses give it their all to win a polo match. However, the literary style is frequently lighthearted, if not outright impish. He enjoys mimicking accents or making up conversations between horses, ponies, and even trains.On the farm, salting time is on a Sunday afternoon, and we take care of the animals as usual. The red oxen, Dave and Pete, are attended to first; they remain in the home meadow in preparation for labour on Monday. The cows follow, followed by Pan the calf, who survived due to his demeanour. The horses, which are dispersed throughout the Back Pasture's 70 acres, come last. Last month, the Dimbula, a brand-new steamer, docked in the High and Narrow Seas with cargo intended for New York.Since the days of Lieutenant-Fireworker Humphrey Chinn of the Bombay European Regiment, who aided with the conquest of Seringapatam in 1799, there has always been at least one representative of the Devonshire Chinns in or close to India.
