Memorable Quotations: Thomas Hardy
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was an English novelist and poet. From 1862 to 1867 he worked for an architect in London and later continued to practice architecture in Dorset. Meanwhile, he was writing poetry with little success. He then turned to novels as more salable, and by 1874 he was able to support himself by writing. One of the great English writers of the 19th century, he is noted for his Wessex novels, including Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886) and Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891). His other major novels are The Return of the Native (1878) and Jude the Obscure (1896). Set in a harsh landscape, they are generally gloomy, naturalistic studies of character and environment. His other books include Wessex Poems (1898), Poems of the Past and Present (1901), The Dynasts (1903-1908), Time's Laughing Stocks (1909), Satires of Circumstances (1914), Moments of Vision (1917), Late Lyrics and Earlier (1922), Human Shows, Far Fantasies (1925), Winter Words (1928), A Pair of Blue Eyes (1873), Desperate Remedies (1871), Life's Little Ironies (1894), The Hand of Ethelberta (1876), Two on a Tower (1882), Wessex Tales (1888), The Woodlanders (1887) and Under the Greenwood Tree (1872).

(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–59) was a French social philosopher. Important in French politics, he was for a short time foreign minister after the revolution of 1848. His renown rests on his classic work Democracy in America (2 vol., 1835), based on observations made during a trip to the United States.

Aristotle

Memorable Quotations: Aristotle
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) was a Greek philosopher and scientist, who along with Plato and Socrates, has the distinction of being one of the most celebrated of ancient philosophers. Between 367 and 347 B.C., he studied under Plato, and from 342 to 339 B.C. he tutored Alexander the Great at the Macedonian court. In 335 B.C. he opened a school in the Athenian Lyceum. During the anti-Macedonian disturbance after Alexander's death, Aristotle fled (323 B.C.) to Chalcis, where he died. His surviving writings remain mainly in the form of lecture notes put together by his students. Aristotle's important works were nowhere to be found in the West after the decline of Rome. In the 9th century A.D., Arab intellectuals introduced Aristotle to the Islamic world. The 12th-century Spanish-Arab philosopher Averroës is the best known of the Arabic scholars who studied Aristotle and his writings. In the 13th century, the Latin West rekindled its interest in Aristotle's work, and Saint Thomas Aquinas discovered in it a philosophical basis for Christian thought. Church officials originally distrusted Aquinas's use of Aristotle; in the early stages of its renewal, Aristotle's philosophy was regarded with some suspicion, largely because his teachings were believed to lead to a materialistic view of the world. Nonetheless, the work of Aquinas was acknowledged, and the later philosophy of scholasticism continued the philosophical custom based on Aquinas's adaptation of Aristotelian thinking. The impact of Aristotle's philosophy has been predominant; it has even helped to influence modern language and common sense. In the 20th century a new appreciation developed of Aristotle's method and its importance to education, literary criticism, analysis of human action, political analysis, zoology, and the world of learning as a whole.

Memorable Quotations: Bertrand Russell
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Born in Wales, Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3d Earl (1872–1970) was a British philosopher, mathematician, and social reformer. The grandson of Lord John Russell, the 1st Earl Russell, he succeeded to the earldom in 1931. While teaching at Cambridge University Russell created his most notable works, Principles of Mathematics (1903) and, with Alfred North Whitehead, Principia Mathematica (3 vol., 1910–13), in which he endeavored to demonstrate how the laws of mathematics could be deduced from the basic axioms of logic. His work influenced 20th-century symbolic logic, set theory in mathematics, and logical positivism, especially in the work of his student Ludwig Wittgenstein. An undogmatic but fervent rationalist, Russell was extremely convinced of the logical independence of individual facts and the dependence of knowledge on the data of original experience. Well known for his social views, he was an energetic pacifist during World War I. In 1927 he and his wife founded the extremely experimental Beacon Hill School. His liberal views on marriage, sex, adultery, and homosexuality made him controversial during most of the 1930s. He deserted pacifism during World War II in the face of the Nazi menace, but returned to it after the war, becoming a leader in the “ban the bomb” movement to stop the manufacture of nuclear weapons. In the 1960s he and Jean-Paul Sartre organized European opposition to U.S. participation in the Vietnam War. Russell's radicalism kept him from a conventional academic career, and he sustained himself primarily by his writings, many of them extensively read, e.g., Marriage and Morals (1929), A History of Western Philosophy (1945), and his autobiography (3 vol., 1967–69). In 1950 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature.

Memorable Quotations: Blaise Pascal
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a French scientist and religious philosopher. A mathematical genius, Pascal created the modern theory of probability, discovered the properties of the cycloid, and added to the advance of differential calculus. In physics his experiments in the equilibrium of fluids led to the development of the hydraulic press. After an overpowering religious experience in 1654, Pascal entered the convent at Port-Royal, subsequently dedicating his attention principally to religious writing. His best-known works are Provincial Letters (1656) and the posthumously published Pensées (1670), which expound the requirement of mystic faith in comprehending the universe.

Memorable Quotations: Charles Baudelaire
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Charles Baudelaire (1821–67) was a French poet whose work has been a most important influence on Western poetry. His poems, classical in form, introduced symbolism. Baudelaire was sullen and rebellious, instilled with a passionate religious mysticism, and his work displays an incessant inner despair. His central theme is the inseparable nature of beauty and corruption. His major work, The Flowers of Evil (1857), initially condemned as obscene, is acknowledged as a masterpiece, especially significant for the brilliant phrasing, rhythm, and expressiveness of its lyrics.

Charles Dickens

Memorable Quotations: Charles Dickens
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Charles Dickens (1812–70) was an English novelist, one of the illustrious fiction writers in English. After a childhood of hardship, during which he had to toil for a time in a blacking warehouse (a humiliation he never forgot), Dickens became a court stenographer and parliamentary reporter. His early sketches of London life were collected in Sketches by Boz (1836). The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (1836–37), a series of linked humorous sketches, quickly made Dickens famous, and the major novels that followed established him as the most admired writer of his time. They include Oliver Twist (1838), Nicholas Nickleby (1839), The Old Curiosity Shop (1841), Barnaby Rudge (1841), Dombey and Son (1848), David Copperfield (1850), Bleak House (1853), Hard Times (1854), Little Dorrit (1857), A Tale of Two Cities (1859), Great Expectations (1861), Our Mutual Friend (1865), and The Mystery of Edwin Drood (1870; unfinished). Following an American trip in 1842, he wrote caustically about the U.S. in American Notes (1842) and in the novel Martin Chuzzlewit (1843). Working incessantly, Dickens gave highly successful readings from his works, edited two magazines, wrote Christmas stories, e.g., A Christmas Carol (1843), and managed amateur theatricals. He wed Catherine Hogarth in 1836, but despite their 10 children, it was not a cheerful union, and they separated in 1858. Although sometimes flawed by sentimentality, Dickens's novels are significant for their rich portrayals of all aspects of society, their campaigns against abuses (imprisonment for debt, legal delays, bad education), and their sharply drawn, eccentric characters, whose names—Mr. Micawber, Uriah Heep, Ebenezer Scrooge—have become household words for generations of avid readers.

(Kindle Book at Amazon)

D.H. (David Herbert), Lawrence (1885–1930) was an English author. Maintaining that industrial civilization dehumanizes, he exalted union with nature and its corollary, sexual satisfaction. His notable novels are Sons and Lovers (1913), The Rainbow (1915), and Women in Love (1921). After World War I, Lawrence wrote about the concept of a superhuman leader for humanity. The novels of this period, e.g., The Plumed Serpent (1926), are considered disappointments. His provocative and sexually explicit Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928) was long banned. Lawrence wrote in a sensuous, lyrical style, skillfully conveying the specific, and significantly influenced 20th-century fiction. His works include poetry, short stories, essays, plays, travel books, and criticism.

F. Scott Fitzgerald was one of the great American authors of the 20th Century. The literary spokesman of the “jazz age,” he wrote about people whose lives resembled his own. He and his wife, Zelda, lived a celebrated life, sparkling and self-indulgent, in New York City and the French Riviera, but his later years were beset by financial worries and his wife's insanity. Fitzgerald's novels include This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby (his masterpiece about the corruption of the American dream), Tender Is the Night, and The Last Tycoon (an unfinished work reflecting his last years in Hollywood). He also published four short-story collections.

Memorable Quotations: Francis Bacon
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Francis Bacon (1561–1626) was an English philosopher, essayist, and statesman. After his disagreement (1584) to Queen Elizabeth I's tax program hindered his political advancement, he was favored by the earl of Essex, whom Bacon later aided to prosecute (1601). Under James I, he progressed from knight (1603) to attorney general (1613) to Lord Chancellor (1618). In 1621 he pleaded guilty to charges of accepting bribes and was fined and banished from office; he spent the remainder of his life writing in retirement. Bacon's best-known writings are his Essays (1597–1625). He proposed a major philosophical work, the Instauratio Magna, but completed only two parts: the Advancement of Learning (1605) later expanded in Latin as De Augmentis Scientarum (1623); and the Novum Organum (1620). His foremost contribution to philosophy was his application of induction, the approach used by modern science, rather than the prior method of medieval scholasticism.

(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Born in Paris, Francois de La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680) was a French epigrammatist and moralist. He took a leading part in the court life, politics, and wars of the reigns of Louis XIII and Louis XIV. La Rochefoucauld's political views and his stance in court schemes were significantly influenced by his close friendships with eminent noblewomen, including the duchesse de Chevreuse, the duchesse de Longueville, and Marie Madeleine, the comtesse de La Fayette; his scholarly life was expanded by his friendship with Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, the marquise de Sévigné. La Rochefoucauld was the writer of a celebrated volume of memoirs, Les mémoires sur la régence d'Anne d'Autriche (Memoirs on the Regency of Anne of Austria, 1662). He is world renowned for his Réflexions ou sentences et maximes morales (Reflections or Moral Thoughts and Maxims, 1665-1678). They are sophisticated yet moral and are characterized by their succinctness, lucidity, fullness of meaning, and wittiness. La Rochefoucauld has never been outshined in France as a writer of epigrammatic maxims.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Memorable Quotations: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) was an important German philosopher. His all-inclusive philosophical system, put forth in such works as Phenomenology of Mind (1807), Science of Logic (1812-16), and Encyclopedia of the Philosophical Sciences (1817), comprises theories of ethics, aesthetics, history, politics, and religion. Hegel theorized an all-encompassing unquestionable spirit at the center of the universe that influences all reality, including human reason. His absolute idealism envisions a world-soul, discernible throughout history, that develops from, and is known through, a process of change and progress now known across the world as the Hegelian dialectic. According to its laws, one concept (thesis) predictably creates its opposite (antithesis); their relationship leads to a new concept (synthesis), which in turn becomes the thesis of a new trinity. Consequently, philosophy allows human beings to grasp the historical unfolding of the absolute. Hegel's use of the dialectic to the concept of conflict of cultures inspired historical analysis and, in the political field, made him a champion to those laboring for a united Germany. He was a key inspiration on successive idealist intellectuals and on such philosophers as Kierkegaard and Sartre; possibly his most far-reaching effect was his impact on Karl Marx, who substituted materialism for idealism in his design of dialectical materialism.

Born in Germany, Hannah Arendt (1906–75) was a German-American political theorist. Escaping the Nazis in 1941, she came to the U.S. and taught at prominent universities. In The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951), which recognized her as a major political thinker, Arendt traced Nazism and Communism to 19th century Imperialism and anti-Semitism. Additional works include The Human Condition (1958), Eichmann in Jerusalem (1963), and The Life of the Mind (1977).

Memorable Quotations: Henri Frédéric Amiel
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Henri Frédéric Amiel (1821 - 1881) was a Swiss philosopher, poet and critic. Amiel journeyed extensively, became familiar with the intellectual forerunners of Europe, and made a distinctive study of German philosophy in Berlin. In 1849 he was chosen professor of aesthetics at the academy of Geneva, and in 1854 became professor of moral philosophy. Bestowed by the democratic party, these appointments divested him of the backing of the aristocratic party, which encompassed virtually all the culture of the city. This seclusion instigated the one book by which Amiel is still known, the Journal Intime ("Private Journal"), which, published after his death, attained a European repute. It shows a sensitive man of vast intellectual ability, fighting for values against the cynicism of the age. Broadly translated, it secured Amiel permanent renown. Although moderate in volume of output, Amiel's mind was of no inferior quality, and his Journal gained a consideration that the author had failed to acquire in his life. In addition to the Journal, he generated numerous volumes of poetry and wrote studies on Erasmus, Madame de Stael and other writers.

Memorable Quotations: Horace
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Horace (65 B.C. - 8 B.C.) was a Latin poet and one of the greatest lyric poets. His patron, Maecenas, gave him the famed Sabine farm where he spent the majority of his later life, composing poetry exhibiting the civilized spirit of the Augustan age and his own gracious temperament and love of nature. His poetry comprises of two books of Satires, four books of Odes, the Epodes, two books of Epistles, the Carmen Saeculare (a hymn), and the Ars Poetica (on literary matters). Horace's satire was gentler than that of Juvenal. He was a genius of poetic form, and his later verse displays a totally individual adaptation of Greek meters to Latin. Horace has remained a foremost influence on English poetry.

Memorable Quotations: Jane Austen
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist, noted for her witty studies of early-19th-century English society. With scrupulous detail, Austen depicted the quiet, day-to-day life of representatives of the upper middle class. Her works blend romantic comedy with social satire and psychological awareness. Because of her understanding of universal archetypes of human conduct, many persons consider Austen as one of the greatest novelists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Jane spent her first 25 years at her father's Hampshire vicarage, penning novels published much later. Northanger Abbey appeared posthumously (with Persuasion) in 1818. Books published in her lifetime were Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1816), comedies of manners, portraying the self-contained world of the English counties. Supplying husbands for marriageable daughters is a dominant theme. Jane Austen's work is renowned for refined irony, moral resolve, and rich characterization. She received minor notice during her lifetime, but nowadays she is regarded as one of the geniuses of the English novel.

Memorable Quotations: Jean-Jacques Rousseau
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Born in Geneva, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 - 1778) was a Swiss-French philosopher and political theorist. A participant of Denis Diderot's clique, he was one of the celebrated individuals of the French Enlightenment and doubtless the most noteworthy of those who molded 19th Century Romanticism, inspiring such persons as Immanuel Kant, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Maximilien François Marie Isidore de Robespierre, Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy, and the French revolutionists. Rousseau's most renowned theory was that of the "natural man." In his Discourse on the Inequalities of Men (1754) and Social Contract (1762) he asserted that human beings were fundamentally good and equal in the state of nature but were tarnished by the introduction of property, agriculture, science, and commerce. Individuals entered into a social contract among themselves, forming governments and educational systems to rectify the inequalities brought about by the rise of civilization. Emile (1762), a moralistic novel, illustrates Rousseau's theory that education is not the instructing of knowledge but the drawing out of what is already in the child. From the 1760s Rousseau was anguished by persecution mania, and he lived his later years in seclusion. His Confessions (1781) created a fresh, deeply personal style of autobiography.

Memorable Quotations: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was a German poet, dramatist, novelist, and scientist. His poetry conveys a modern observation of humanity’s connection to nature, history, and society; his plays and novels reveal a deep understanding of human individualism. Goethe’s significance can be assessed by the weight of his critical writings, his immense correspondence, and his poetry, dramas, and novels upon the authors of his own time and upon the literary movements which he initiated and of which he was the leading individual. According to the 19th-century English critic Matthew Arnold, Goethe must be deemed not only “the manifest center of German literature” but one of the most multitalented notables in all world literature.

Memorable Quotations: John Maynard Keynes
(Nook Book at Barnes&Noble)

John Maynard Keynes, 1st Baron Keynes of Tilton (1883-1946), was a British economist. Born in Cambridge, England, he was educated at Eton College and the University of Cambridge. Keynes started his career in the India Office of the British government and authored an important and influential book, Indian Currency and Finance (1913). During World War I he worked in the treasury, which he represented at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919. He opposed the economic terms of the Treaty of Versailles; he quit his position and wrote The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919), in which he accurately foretold that the astonishing reparations imposed against Germany would provoke that country into economic nationalism and a revival of militarism. Throughout the next few years, Keynes amassed a fortune speculating in international currencies, lectured at Cambridge, and wrote Treatise on Probability (1921), a mathematical work, and A Treatise on Money (1930), in which he attempted to describe why an economy operates so erratically, with regular cycles of booms and slumps. Keynes carefully scrutinized the problem of protracted depression in his foremost work, The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money (1936). This book suggested that no self-correcting mechanism to boost an economy out of a depression existed. Keynes recommended that government spending should compensate for inadequate business investment in periods of recession. Keynes's opinions have greatly shaped the economic policies of numerous governments since World War II, and many people deem his General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money one of the most important theoretical works of the 20th century.

Memorable Quotations: Jonathan Swift
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Born in Dublin, Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was an Anglo-Irish writer and maestro of satire. His initial works were The Battle of the Books, espousing the supremacy of the ancients to the moderns, and Tale of a Tub, a satire on religious overindulgences; both were published in 1704. Swift was enthusiastic in Whig politics with Joseph Addison and Richard Steele, but turned against the party over its antagonism to the Anglican Church. Pamphlets on clerical and political matters, in which he generally backed the Tories, occupied him from 1708 to 1714. In 1714 he was made dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. He became a champion to the Irish with his Drapier's Letters (1724) and the ferocious Modest Proposal (1729), in which he incongruously promoted the breeding of Irish babies to be fed to the rich as a way of decreasing Ireland's poverty. His magnum opus, Gulliver's Travels (1726), a vicious satire on human foolhardiness and 18th Century England, is matchless in the passion of its moralism. Paradoxically, it was later turned into an abridged children's story.

Joseph Addison (1672–1719) was an English essayist, poet, and statesman. His Remarks on Italy (1705) chronicled early travels. The distinction he achieved with the epic Campaign (1704) on Marlborough's victory at Blenheim led to political appointments, and he served in Parliament (1708–19). Addison contributed to his friend Richard Steele's periodical the Tatler after 1710. There, and in the Spectator and Guardian, he raised the English essay to an unsurpassed height. In prose marked by simplicity, order, and precision, Addison promoted reason and moderation in life.

(Nook Book at Barnes&Noble)

Karl Marx (1818–83) was a German social philosopher and revolutionary. With Friedrich Engels, Marx was a founder of modern socialism and communism. The son of a lawyer, he studied law and philosophy. In 1844 he met Engels in Paris, beginning a lifelong alliance. With Engels he wrote the Communist Manifesto (1848) and other works that split with the tradition of appealing to natural rights to justify social reform, evoking instead the laws of history leading predictably to the victory of the working class. Exiled from Europe after the revolutions of 1848, Marx lived in London, making some money as a correspondent for the New York Tribune but reliant on Engels's financial help while working on his epic work Das Kapital (1867–94). With Engels, Marx helped found (1864) the International Workingmen's Association, but his disagreements with the anarchist Mikhail Bakunin ultimately led to its breakup. Several scholars have considered Marx a great economic theoretician and the founder of economic history and sociology

Memorable Quotations: Leo Tolstoy
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Count Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) was a Russian novelist and philosopher. Of a noble family, he was orphaned at nine and raised by aunts. He left the university without a degree and returned to his family estate, where he tried to help and educate the serfs. After a squandering interval in Moscow and St. Petersburg, he joined his brother, an officer, in the Caucasus. After leaving the military, he lived by turns on his estate and in St. Petersburg. In 1862 he married Sophia, a young, well-educated girl, who bore him 13 children. War and Peace, his first masterpiece, appeared in 1863-1869. An epic of the Napoleonic invasion, it illuminates Tolstoy's vision that history proceeds inescapably to its own ends. Anna Karenina (1875-77), his second masterwork, is a tragedy of adultery with insightful social and spiritual components. In 1876 Tolstoy experienced a crisis culminating in his conversion to a doctrine of Christian love, nonviolent recognition of evil, and repudiation of wealth. He devoted the rest of his life to practicing and transmitting his faith, illustrated in such works as What I Believe (1884). He judged erroneous such establishments as the government and church; he was excommunicated in 1901, but his notoriety protected him from severe state obstruction. Moral issues are dominant to his later works, especially "The Death of Ivan Ilyich" (1886), a story; The Power of Darkness (1886), a drama; and the novel Resurrection (1899). In the essay “What Is Art?” (1898) he reasoned that the artist is morally obligated to produce works comprehensible to most people, and criticized his own earlier works. In 1910 a rift with his family prompted Tolstoy to leave home; he died a few days later.

Memorable Quotations: Lord Byron
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Lord Byron, George Gordon Noel Byron, 6th Baron, (1788–1824), was one of the illustrious English romantic poets. In his life and in his poetry, Lord Byron exemplifies romanticism. Born with a clubfoot, he grew to be a dark, attractive man, adored by, but derisive of, women. When an early work, Hours of Idleness (1807), was scorned by the Edinburgh Review, he retorted with English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809), a satire that made him celebrated. His countless love affairs before and after his ill-fated marriage (1815–16) to Anne Isabella Milbanke (notably with Lady Caroline Lamb, wife of Viscount Melbourne, and Claire Clairmont, Percy Bysshe Shelley's sister-in-law) made him notorious. Byron settled in Venice in 1817. After drifting restlessly about Europe, he died working for Greek independence. Byron's writings include long romances and stories in verse, e.g., Childe Harold (1812–18), The Bride of Abydos (1813), The Corsair (1814), Manfred (1817), Beppo (1818), and Mazeppa (1819); shorter works such as The Prisoner of Chillon; and lyrics. His masterpiece is Don Juan (1819–24), an epic-satire.

Lord Chesterfield (Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th earl of Chesterfield) (1694–1773) was an English statesman and writer. He was a famous wit and orator whose literary distinction rests on letters to his illegitimate son Philip Stanhope (published 1774), directed at educating a young man, and on letters to his godson (published 1890).

Memorable Quotations: Marcel Proust
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Marcel Proust (1871–1922) was a French novelist and one of the great literary figures of modern times. As a youth, he circulated energetically in Parisian society, but later he became increasingly withdrawn. After 1907, he lived primarily in a cork-lined room, laboring at night on his massive cyclic novel, Remembrance of Things Past (1913–27). Expansive, but successful with splendid metaphor and sense imagery, the work is lush in psychological, philosophical, and sociological understanding, a crucial theme being the link between external and internal reality found in time and memory. In Proust's stratagem, the individual is secluded, society is deceptive and ruled by snobbery, and artistic endeavor is elevated to a religion.

Memorable Quotations: Michel de Montaigne
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Michel de Montaigne (1533–92) was a French essayist. Architect and greatest master of the essay as a modern literary form, he was a magistrate (1557–70) and mayor of Bordeaux (1581–85). He created his first two books of Essays while living in retirement between 1571 and 1580, and the third after 1586. The essays display the growth of Montaigne's thinking, from a study of himself into a more universal study of humanity and nature. The early works show his anxiety with pain and death. A middle period is portrayed by his doubt regarding all knowledge. Montaigne's last essays reflect his recognition of life as good and his certainty that people must determine their own nature in order to live in peace and dignity. The Essays reflect a varied variety of subjects of universal concern and have significantly affected both later French writing and English literature.

Memorable Quotations: Miguel de Cervantes
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Miguel de Cervantes (1547–1616) was a Spanish novelist, dramatist, and poet, author of Don Quixote. In 1569 he went to Italy, where he studied literature and philosophy. His first published work was La Galatea (1585), a pastoral romance in prose and verse. Part I of his masterpiece, Don Quixote de la Mancha (1605), was an instant success. The muddled idealism of Don Quixote, a country gentleman who has read too many chivalric romances, and the unsophisticated avarice of his squire, Sancho Panza, thrust them into a series of escapades involving characters from every level of society. The appearance of a fake sequel impelled Cervantes to publish Part II in 1615. The work had an enduring influence on the development of the European novel.

Memorable Quotations: Oliver Goldsmith
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Oliver Goldsmith (1730?-1774) was an Anglo-Irish author. A member of Samuel Johnson's inner circle, he found fame with Citizen of the World (1762), a series of capricious essays; the philosophical poem The Traveler (1764); and the nostalgic bucolic The Deserted Village (1770). His repute, though, rests on two comedies, The Good-Natur'd Man (1768) and She Stoops to Conquer (1773), and on his novel The Vicar of Wakefield (1766). The comedies infused realism into the lackluster, maudlin theater of the time and, similar to the novel, are instilled with wit and earnest humanity.

Memorable Quotations: Samuel Johnson
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Samuel Johnson (1709–84) was an English author and the foremost literary scholar and critic of his day. He helped to define the celebrated period of English literature known as the Augustan Age and is as renowned for his sparkling conversation as for his writing. He began writing for London magazines around 1737, on literary and political subjects. The anonymously published poem London (1738) earned the praise of Alexander Pope, and his reputation was further heightened by his poetic satire The Vanity of Human Wishes (1749) and his moral essays in The Rambler (1750–52). Johnson's position was permanently guaranteed by his remarkable Dictionary of the English Language (1755), the first comprehensive English lexicon. Rasselas, a moral romance, appeared in 1759, and the Idler essays between 1758 and 1760. In 1763 Johnson met James Boswell, and his life thereafter is documented in Boswell's great biography (1791). With Joshua Reynolds he founded (1764) “The Club”; this exclusive gathering, with such members as Oliver Goldsmith, Edmund Burke, and David Garrick, was dominated by Johnson, whose wit and aphorisms are still remembered. In 1765 he published his edition of Shakespeare, the model for later editions. His last works include an account (1775) of a trip with Boswell to the Hebrides and the perceptive 10-volume Lives of the Poets (1779–81). He was England's first complete man of letters, and his influence was inestimable.

(Kindle Book at Amazon)

The Bloomsbury Group or Bloomsbury Set was a clique of writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists who held casual discussions. This English group of friends and relatives lived, worked or studied near Bloomsbury in London during the first half of the twentieth century. Although its participants denied being a group in any official sense, they were bonded by a steadfast belief in the value of the arts. Their work profoundly influenced literature, aesthetics, criticism, and economics as well as modern opinions towards feminism, pacifism, and sexuality. Included in this book are five famous members of the illustrious Bloomsbury Group: E. M. Forster, John Maynard Keynes, Vita Sackville-West, Lytton Strachey, and Virginia Woolf.

Memorable Quotations: Thomas Carlyle
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Born in Scotland, Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881) was an English writer. He first achieved notice as an interpreter of German romanticism with his Life of Schiller (1825) and a translation of Goethe's Wilhelm Meister (1824). In 1826 he married Jane Baillie Welsh, an ambitious woman who did much to help his career. A forthright critic of materialism, he conveyed his views in a kind of spiritual autobiography, Sartor Resartus (1833–34), and in his interpretative rather than historic French Revolution (1837). He assailed laissez-faire theory and parliamentary democracy and emphasized his conviction in strong government and exalted individuals in On Heroes, Hero-Worship, and The Heroic in History (1841) and Past and Present (1843), in an edition of the writings of Oliver Cromwell (1845), and in a biography of Frederick the Great (1858–65). Carlyle had immense impact on the literary world of his day; his style, complex yet effective, is distinctive.

Memorable Quotations: Victor Hugo
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Victor Hugo (1802–85) was a French poet, dramatist, and novelist and 19th-century France's foremost literary figure. The preface to his play Cromwell (1827) positioned him at the lead of the romantic school, and the production of his unusual poetic drama Hernani (1830) produced a riot between defenders of romanticism and classicism. Other plays are Le Roi s'amuse (1832) and Ruy Blas (1838). His major poetic works, e.g., Autumn Leaves (1831), Rays and Shadows (1840), and Contemplations (1856), exhibit his musical strengths and highly personal voice. His two impressive epic novels, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1831) and Les Misérables (1862), for which he is best known in English, depict the sufferings of humanity with great compassion and authority. Initially a monarchist, Hugo later became an enthusiastic republican, and his opposition to Napoleon III led to his exile in 1851. In 1870 he returned in triumph to Paris, where his last years were marked by public adoration; he is buried in the Panthéon.

(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was an English author and an inventive influence on the 20th-century novel. With her husband, Leonard Woolf, she established the Hogarth Press in 1917. Their home was the center for the Bloomsbury group. In her writing she focused on the flow of commonplace experience through the stream of consciousness technique. Her prose is graceful, symbolic, and visual. Woolf's novels include Mrs. Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), Orlando (1928), The Waves (1931), and Between the Acts (1941). Her criticism is contained in The Common Reader (1925) and volumes of essays, letters, and diaries. She also wrote two feminist tracts, A Room of One's Own (1929) and Three Guineas (1938).

Voltaire

Memorable Quotations: Voltaire
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

François Marie Arouet de Voltaire (1694-1778) was a French philosopher and writer; he was a prominent person of the Enlightenment. Twice unfairly imprisoned (1717-1718, 1726) and then expelled to England (1726-1729), he acquired a hatred of judicial unpredictability combined with an appreciation of English liberalism. Returning to France, he lived in Lorraine, with Mme Du Châtelet, who wielded a significant intellectual impact on him. Upon her death in 1749, he went to reside at the court of Prussia, but his relationship with Frederick II was volatile, and Voltaire left in 1753. He then settled on an estate near Geneva. His celebratory return to Paris in 1778 was too much for him, and he died shortly after. Voltaire's body of work is vast; and his authority, immense. His Letters concerning the English Nation (1733) started the trend for English philosophy and science that exemplified the French Enlightenment. The Philosophical Dictionary (1764) refined his political and religious preconceptions. He authored several tragedies, among them Brutus (1730) and Zaïre (1732). His remarkable historical works, The Age of Louis XIV (1751) and the Essay on Manners (1756), introduced a new approach, highlighting culture and commerce as much as politics and war. Most extensively read nowadays is his satirical masterpiece, Candide (1759).

W. H. Auden (1907–73) was an Anglo-American poet and a notable 20th-century literary figure. In the 1930s he was associated with Stephen Spender, Louis MacNeice, and Christopher Isherwood; with the last he wrote the verse plays The Dog Beneath the Skin (1935), The Ascent of F6 (1936), and On the Frontier (1938). Some of Auden's most original poetry appeared in the early 1930s. Later volumes, varying in subject from politics to psychology to Christianity, include The Double Man (1941), Collected Poetry (1945), The Age of Anxiety (1947; Pulitzer), Nones (1951), and About the House (1965). Additionally, he wrote critical essays and opera librettos. A United States resident from 1939 and citizen from 1946, Auden divided his final years among England, Italy, Austria, and New York.

Walter Benjamin (1892–1940) was a German essayist and critic. His essays on Charles Baudelaire and Franz Kafka and his opinion on symbolism, allegory, and the function of art in a mechanical age have greatly affected modern criticism. When the Nazis invaded France, Benjamin, who had moved there in 1933, escaped to Spain. He was refused entry and committed suicide.

Memorable Quotations: William Blake
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

William Blake (1757–1827) was an English poet and artist who wielded a great influence on English romanticism. His first book, Poetical Sketches (1783), was the only one published traditionally during his life. With the assistance of his wife, Catherine Boucher, he illustrated and published all his other major poetry himself. Songs of Innocence (1789) and Songs of Experience (1794), containing “The Lamb,” “The Tyger,” and “London,” are written from a child's point of view. Blake was a visionary and a mystic, and in his “Prophetic Books,” including The Book of Thel (1789), The Marriage of Heaven and Hell (c.1790), Milton (1804–8), and Jerusalem (1804–20), he invented his own mythology in which love, energy, and imagination struggle with the forces of reductive rationalism and repression. Blake's paintings and engravings, principally his illustrations of his own works, works by Milton, and the Book of Job, are realistic in their portrayal of human anatomy and other natural forms, but also brilliantly imaginative, often illustrating imaginary creatures in exacting detail. All of Blake's works were disregarded or rejected until long after his death.

His insightful literary criticism is accumulated in Characters of Shakespeare's Plays (1817), Lectures on the English Poets (1818), Lectures on the English Comic Writers (1819), Table Talk (1821–22), and The Spirit of the Age (1825). His Dramatic Literature of the Age of Elizabeth (1820) restored awareness in Shakespeare and Elizabethan drama. Among his splendid essays are “On Going a Journey” and “On the Feeling of Immortality in Youth.”

Memorable Quotations: William James
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Born in New York City, William James (1842–1910) was an American philosopher and psychologist. The son of the theologian Henry James and brother of the novelist Henry James, William James initially taught psychology and then philosophy at Harvard University. His Principles of Psychology (1890) was a splendid and epoch-making work. Though he is often deemed the founder of pragmatism, James conferred that claim to C.S. Peirce. According to James, the veracity of a proposition is judged by its practical outcome. His “radical empiricism” rebuffed all transcendental principles and directly affected the instrumentalism of John Dewey. James retained a lifetime interest in religion and psychical research. His works, notable for their literary quality, include The Will to Believe (1897), The Varieties of Religious Experience (1902), and Pragmatism (1907).

Memorable Quotations: Woodrow Wilson
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Woodrow (Thomas) Wilson (1856-1924) was the 28th president of the United States (1913-21). Born in Staunton, Virginia, he graduated from Princeton University, received a law degree from University of Virginia, and a Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University. A noted scholar, he taught at Bryn Mawr College and Wesleyan University before becoming professor of jurisprudence and political economy at Princeton. Wilson became president of Princeton in 1902. In 1910 he was elected governor of New Jersey on a reform Democratic ticket. As governor (1911-13) he achieved various notable reforms. At the 1912 Democratic convention he was nominated for president on the 46th ballot. He was elected president when the Republican vote was split between William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt. Wilson's domestic program, known as the "New Freedom," was generally progressive; among its accomplishments were the Federal Reserve System (1913), the Federal Trade Commission (1914), and the Clayton Antitrust Act (1914). The early troubles with Mexico were soon eclipsed by the outbreak of World War I in Europe. His initial efforts to sustain United States neutrality were upset by the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 and other German hostilities. Nonetheless, he ran for reelection in 1916 on the assertion of having "kept us out of war," and barely defeated Charles Evans Hughes, the Republican candidate. Relations with Germany persisted to worsen and war was declared on April 6, 1917. Wilson perceived the war as essential to make the world "safe for democracy" and swiftly put the nation on a war footing. Looking ahead to peace, he articulated his plans for its implementation with his Fourteen Points. When the war ended, he sailed in December 1918 for Europe to take part in the peace talks. Wilson's idealism was broadly esteemed in Europe, and he was viewed as the best prospect for a fair peace. Despite his displeasure with the subsequent Treaty of Versailles, he fastened his great hopes on the League of Nations. In America, though, isolationism had reasserted itself, principally among the Republicans in Congress. Wilson's final endeavors as president were spent in a fruitless attempt to win United States ratification of, and thus membership in, the League of Nations. He suffered a stroke in September 1919 and never completely recovered. He was awarded the 1919 Nobel Peace Prize.
