9781515113935: Youth of Parnassus and other Stories

The Youth of Parnassus and Other Stories, includes: The Youth of Parnassus The Will to Live. I. - The Will to Live. 11. - The Claim of the Past - A Broken Journey - The Sub-Warden - Idyll - - Buller Intervening - The Optimist - - . The Yoath of Parnassw The Youth of Parnassus H E came straight to Oxford from his American home, Parnassus City, a town in the Western State of Indiana. The moral of the titular tale is that youths should not come from raw Indiana and Methodism unto the cultured center of Oxford, England; because culture is sure to ruin the youths' natural taste, so that they can no longer abide the one or the other—to wit, Indiana and Methodism. The rest of the stories are clever in conception and in dialogue, for Mr. Smith has a pretty wit of his own. He gently makes fun of almost everything that we cherish or enjoy. Fortunately for its own peace of mind, the proletariate will probably not read Mr. Smith's entertaining stories.
