About this Item: ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1914 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Selected English Short Stories, XIX Century (First Series) Whatever men do is a phrase which describes the theme Of the story-teller as well as that of the satirist. The most universal of human interests is the interest of man in his brother man. We should expect this universal interest to manifest itself early, and to do so first in a direct and simple rather than in an indirect and critical fashion. And this is what we actually find. The literary critic can with reasonable accuracy trace the rise of satire but who shall assign an origin to the story 2 Even the higher criticism would place Genesis comparatively speaking- fairly near the beginning of things and Genesis contains some of the finest tales ever penned. When the curtain rises on the literature of Greece, it reveals an Iliad and an Odyssey, each of which is a long story skilfully woven out of many Short tales. So, again, when light breaks through the darkness of the North, it discloses that great collection of the heroic legends of Scandinavia, the Edda; and when our own branch of the Teutonic race migrated from the Continent, among the furniture it deemed too precious to be left behind was, apparently, the group of legends from which sprang Beowulf. That Celtic race which these Teutons found in possession of the land had its own heroic myths, the modern forms Of which point back to a past far beyond the dawn of authentic, or.
