More > information on Egyptian religious rites), and On the Malice of Herodotus (which may, like the orations on Alexander's accomplishments, have been a rhetorical exercise), in which Plutarch criticizes what he sees as systematic bias in the Father of History's work; along with more philosophical treatises, such as On the Decline of the Oracles, On the Delays of the Divine Vengeance, On Peace of Mind and lighter fare, such as Odysseus and Gryllus, a humorous dialog between Homer's Odysseus and one of Circe's enchanted pigs.

THE experiences recorded in this volume are the result of four summer cruises among the... More > islands of the Pacific. The simple and natural life of the islander beguiles me; I am at home with him; all the rites of savagedom find a responsive echo in my heart; it is as though I recollected something long forgotten; it is like a dream dimly remembered, and at last realized; it must be that the untamed spirit of some aboriginal ancestor quickens my blood. I have sought to reproduce the atmosphere of a people who are wonderfully imaginative and emotional; they nourish the first symptoms of an affinity, and revel in the freshness of an affection as brief and blissful as a honeymoon. With them "love is enough," and it is not necessarily one with the sexual passion: their life is sensuous and picturesque, and is incapable of a true interpretation unless viewed from their own standpoint.< Less

Here, then, is the texture and tone of a school that prides itself on preserving time and space for many things that are crowded out by contemporary lives. We honor the need to invent fresh games,... More > build odd forts and structures in the woods, dig for bugs and then look them up and figure them out by name and nature. This is a school that sponsors fairy houses and correspondence between the wee folk of all tribes and stripes. And we like mud too—lots of it. When it rains, and the field floods the swale that verges on the woods and cascades through Fort Town, it’s time for civil engineering. Fort Edward was inaugurated last year, as well as a grand dam and cascading pools and sluices. Not many schools would consider this part of their primary mission, and an academic rite of sublime importance.< Less

More > devil-worshippers who practiced vile rites and were the terror of folk across the seas. But, like most tyrants, they were at last thrown down, their strong places sacked and destroyed.
