Gargantua and Pantagruel. Book II

Good people, most illustrious drinkers, and you, thrice precious gouty gentlemen, did you ever see Diogenes, and cynic philosopher? If you have seen him, you then had your eyes in your head, or I am very much...


Gargantua and Pantagruel. Book I

by François Rabelais

Had Rabelais never written his strange and marvellous romance, no one would ever have imagined the possibility of its production. It stands outside other things—a mixture of mad mirth and gravity, of folly...


Fairy Tales From all Nations

by Anthony R. Montalba

The time has been, but happily exists no longer, when it would have been necessary to offer an apology for such a book as this. In those days it was not held that Beauty is its own excuse for being; on the contrary,...


Gargantua and Pantagruel

by François Rabelais

Had Rabelais never written his strange and marvellous romance, no one would ever have imagined the possibility of its production. It stands outside other things—a mixture of mad mirth and gravity, of folly...


Strange True Stories of Louisiana

by George Washington Cable

True stories are not often good art. The relations and experiences of real men and women rarely fall in such symmetrical order as to make an artistic whole. Until they have had such treatment as we give stone...


Legends of Charlemagne

by Thomas Bulfinch

If no other knowledge deserves to be called useful but that which helps to enlarge our possessions or to raise our station in society, then Mythology has no claim to the appellation. But if that which tends...

Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were: Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree. 'Now my dears,'...


What the Moon Saw

by Hans Christian Andersen

The present book is put forth as a sequel to the volume of Hans C. Andersen's "Stories and Tales". It contains tales and sketches various in character; and following, as it does, an earlier volume, care has...


Mahabharata

by Romesh Chunder Dutt

Ancient India, like ancient Greece, boasts of two great Epics. One of them, the Maha-bharata, relates to a great war in which all the warlike races of Northern India took a share, and may therefore be compared...

by Cao Xueqin

"...The Empress Nü Wo, (the goddess of works,) in fashioning blocks of stones, for the repair of the heavens, prepared, at the Ta Huang Hills and Wu Ch'i cave, 36,501 blocks of rough stone, each twelve chang...


The Age of Chivalry

by Thomas Bulfinch

On the decline of the Roman power, about five centuries after Christ, the countries of Northern Europe were left almost destitute of a national government. Numerous chiefs, more or less powerful, held local...


Stories of King Arthur and the Holy Grail

by William Henry Frost

There is really no need, perhaps, for me to tell you that all these stories have been told before. But, though you know it already, I like to say it again, because I can never say often enough how grateful I...


Vikram and the Vampire

by Richard F. Burton

The Baital-Pachisi, or Twenty-five Tales of a Baital is the history of a huge Bat, Vampire, or Evil Spirit which inhabited and animated dead bodies. It is an old, and thoroughly Hindu, Legend composed in Sanskrit,...


Stories of Gods and Heroes

by Thomas Bulfinch

The religions of ancient Greece and Rome are extinct. The so- called divinities of Olympus have not a single worshipper among living men. They belong now not to the department of theology, but to those of literature...
