A Modern Telemachus was inspired by The Mariners' Chronicle; it was compiled by a person named Scott early in the last century--a curious book of narratives of maritime adventures, with exceedingly... More > quaint illustrations. Nothing has ever shown me more plainly that truth is stranger than fiction, for all that is most improbable here is the actual fact. The Comte de Bourke was really an Irish Jacobite, naturalised in France, and married to the daughter of the Marquis de Varennes, as well as in high favour with the Marshal Duke of Berwick. In 1719, just when the ambition of Elizabeth Farnese, the second wife of Philip V. of Spain, had involved that country in a war with England, France, and Austria, the Count was transferred from the Spanish Embassy to that of Sweden, and sent for his wife and two elder children to join him at a Spanish port.< Less

The Odyssey is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems attributed to Homer. Rendered here into English Prose and Translated by Samuel Butler. It is, in part, a sequel to the Iliad, the other work... More > ascribed to Homer. The poem is fundamental to the modern Western canon, and is the second oldest extant work of Western literature, the Iliad being the first.

More > father and the wisdom of his mother as he navigates the treacherous waters of the War of the Families. More devastating than the Trojan War, this conflict pits the two greatest clans in ancient Greece: the Pelopides and Heraclides. It is the last gasp of a failing civilization.
