Excerpt from Every Saturday, Vol. 3: A Journal of Choice Reading; January to June, 1873 His rst work of any importance was the heroic drama of G'otz von Berlichingen, which was also Walter Scott's work, so to speak; the forerunner of all those Marmions and Ivanhoes which have long obliterated and superseded their German pioneer. Gotz was written when Goethe was twenty-two, and is perhaps more remarkable as being his banner of revolt against the poetical canons of his time, the outburst of a new national literature and new genera tion of genius and also as the origin of a school of poetry widely extended among ourselves, and scarcely yet ex hansted in force and power - than from its own intrinsic merits. These merits we cannot think to be great; though that it was wonderful in its daring there can be no doubt, and startled the whole German world b a marvellous rev elation of something of their own, wort caring for, which would naturally have the profoundest effect upon a people living, as it were, out of their own language in the bor rowed delights of an alien literature, neither congenial nor natural to them. In circumstances so exceptional it may be right to characterize this drama as a work of darin power, of vigor, of originality a work to form an epoce in the annals of letters; or, with a newspaper of the day, to describe it as a piece in which the three unities are shamefully outraged, and which is neither a tragedy nor a comedy, ut is, notwithstanding, the most beautiful, the most capltivatin monstrosity. In these days, however, few En 'ah re ers will find Go'tz either captivating or beautif It is bustling, rapid, and full of activity in its plot and action; yet it strikes us as looking much more like a fossil than an animated picture of life. One reason of this probably is, that the author, with a philosophic cool ness most characteristic of his nature. Makes it his aim, not to represent any group of individual souls, their assions and motives, but to give a picture of the age. Is pic ture of the age, however, is abrupt and fragmentary. It has neither the fulness and richness of Scott, nor the mi nute and patient detail of Manzoni; although, so far as this effort is concerned, Goethe was the parent of both these great writers. The drama is a breathless sketch rapid, stirring, and full of movement, but without passion, almost without strong emotion. Go'tz himself is but thrown in in bold outline u on the canvas, his character very faintly indicated, and is position never made quite clear. His mixture of patriotism and individualism; his readi ness for a raid at any time; his loyalty, such as it is, to the Emperor, and hostility to everybody else, have not the clearness and force which such a picture Peqﬂim' About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Every Saturday, Vol. 1: A Journal of Choice Reading Selected From Foreign Current Literature; January to June, 1866 T e most valuable of all jewels, however, is the ruby. This precious stone depends upon its color, as we have said before, for its value. The ruby, sapphire, and oriental topaz are composed of identi ca ly the same materials; the red sapphire is a ruby, the blue ruby a sapphire, the yellow ruby a topaz. They are all termed Corundums, an Indian name. The ruby is the next hardest thing in nature after the diamond. The finest rubies are found in the kingdom of Ava, and in Siam; they are also found in Ceylon and in many parts of Europe. The King of Burmah takes one of his titles from it, that of Lord of the Rubies. In Burmah they are a royal monopoly, and none of any value are allowed by law to leave the kingdom. The finding of a fine ruby is made a state event, and a proces sion of grandees, with soldiers and elephants, are sent out to meet it. The color varies from pale rose to deep red, but the tint that is most highly valued is that of the pigeon's blood.

Wanda Jackson's debut single, "You Can't Have My Love," reached the Top 10 while she was still a sixteen-year-old high school student. She hit the road after graduation, playing package shows with Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley, who gave Wanda his ring and asked her to be "his girl." With Presley's encouragement, the Oklahoma native began recording rock music, often releasing singles with country on one side and rock on the other during her decade-and-a-half tenure on Capitol Records. Known for her energetic stage shows and pioneering presence as a female artist, Wanda stormed the charts with a series of hit singles, including "Let's Have a Party," "Right or Wrong," and "In the Middle of a Heartache." With more than 40 albums to her credit, Wanda has proven to be an enduring and genre-defying legend of American music. In Every Night is Saturday Night, Wanda tells her own story of getting discovered by Country Music Hall of Famer Hank Thompson; shy she refused to return to The Grand Ole Opry for more than fifty years; the challenges she and her integrated band, The Party Timers, faced in the early 1960s; finding the love of her life; her recent work with rock luminaries Jack White and Joan Jett; and how her deep faith has sustained her over more than seven decades of rocking, shocking, and thrilling audiences around the globe.

"You ought to see Livy & me, now-a-days—you never saw such a serenely satisfied couple of doves in all your life. I spent Jan 1, 2, 3 & 5 there, & left at 8 last night. With my vile temper & variable moods, it seems an incomprehensible miracle that we two have been right together in the same house half the time for a year & a half, & yet have never had a cross word, or a lover's 'tiff,' or a pouting spell, or a misunderstanding, or the faintest shadow of a jealous suspicion. Now isn't that absolutely wonderful? Could I have had such an experience with any other girl on earth? I am perfectly certain I could not. . . . We are to be married on Feb. 2d." So begins Volume 4 of the letters, with Samuel Clemens anticipating his wedding to Olivia L. Langdon. The 338 letters in this volume document the first two years of a loving marriage that would last more than thirty years. They recount, in Clemens's own inimitable voice, a tumultuous time: a growing international fame, the birth of a sickly first child, and the near-fatal illness of his wife. At the beginning of 1870, fresh from the success of The Innocents Abroad, Clemens is on "the long agony" of a lecture tour and planning to settle in Buffalo as editor of the Express. By the end of 1871, he has moved to Hartford and is again on tour, anticipating the publication of Roughing It and the birth of his second child. The intervening letters show Clemens bursting with literary ideas, business schemes, and inventions, and they show him erupting with frustration, anger, and grief, but more often with dazzling humor and surprising self-revelation. In addition to Roughing It, Clemens wrote some enduringly popular short pieces during this period, but he saved some of his best writing for private letters, many of which are published here for the first time.

With more than half a million copies of her novels sold, Naomi Ragen has connected with the hearts of readers as well as reviewers who have met her work with unanimous praise. In The Saturday Wife, Ragen utilizes her fluid writing style--rich with charm and detail--to break new ground as she harnesses satire to expose a world filled with contradiction. Beautiful, blonde, materialistc Delilah Levy steps into a life she could have never imagined when in a moment of panic she decides to marry a sincere Rabbinical student. But the reality of becoming a paragon of virtue for a demanding and hypocritical congregation leads sexy Delilah into a vortex of shocking choices which spiral out of control into a catastrophe which is as sadly believeable as it is wildly amusing. Told with immense warmth, fascinating insight, and wicked humor, The Saturday Wife depicts the pitched and often losing battle of all of us as we struggle to hold on to our faith and our values amid the often delicious temptations of the modern world.
