Συρανό δε Μπερζεράκ

This is the famous 19th-century play about a great swordsman and poet with the unseemly large nose. Although he is feared by opponents, he cannot court the woman of his dreams, except through anonymously sent poems, which makes for a romantic and adventurous tale.

الموسيقي الشرقية والغناء العربي

by قسطندي رزق

لقد أُشربت محبة المرحوم عبده الحمولي منذ نعومة أظفاري يوم خالط المرحوم والدي بالزقازيق وزارنا في دارنا وغنانا غناءه العربي؛ فأعجبت به أيما إعجاب وارتسمت في ذهني صورة العروبة الفخمة بما مثَّل أمامنا من الحركات والأقوال التي صوَّرت لي إباء العرب وفروسيتهم وعظمتهم، وما أتاه من شجيّ التلحين وحسن الأداء، وتفخيم اللفظ الدال على معناه، والإبانة في مخارج الحروف، فهو حرىُّ بأن يكنى بغريد الشرق الذي لا تفتح العين على مثله، وأخذت منذ ذلك الحين أشعر بتيار موسيقى يتمشى في عروقي إلى أن أضحيت من المولعين بالغناء العربي الذي لا أصبو إلا إليه، وحزت ملكة التمييز بين جيده ورديئه لا سيما إذا سمعت ركزا لخليط مجدد. ولما هبَّ على الموسيقى العربية عاصف التجديد، وحاول أن يقتلع جذورها من تربتها المباركة الخصبة، شمرت لصد ذلك التيار عنها غيرة على عظمتها وسحرها، واتقاء للرمق الباقي منها، إذ هي الآن والعياذ بالله واقفة على مفترق طريقين لا محيد لها عن سلوك واحد منهما، فإما أن تحيا وتستعيد ماضي شبابها إذا تداركها أولو الأمر منا، وإما أن يسجل عليها الموت الذي لا حياة بعده إذا ألقينا حبل المجددين على غاربهم يجهزون على تلحيننا القومي ويرتضخون لَكْنَةً غربية بدلا من ترديد نبرنا العربي،

Agnes Grey

by Anne Brontë

Agnes Grey is the story of a young woman who is forced by poverty to work as a governess for wealthy families while attempting to find love and happiness of her own. Set in early Victorian England, and based on Anne Bronte's own experiences, the novel explores Agnes's struggles with her cruel, uncaring employers, and a society that does not value a woman of her low position. Though less well known than the novels of her sisters, Emily and Charlotte, Anne's first book has been praised by critics for its wit and "near perfect prose."

El arte de amar

by Ovid

Ovidio nació en el año 43 a. C. en Sulmo, no muy lejos de Roma, y murió desterrado en una remota aldea del Ponto, Tomis. El arte de amar y El remedio del amor, entre otros motivos, ocasionaron su destierro, que le fue impuesto por Augusto, quien permaneció siempre implacable a los ruegos del poeta para que le permitiese regresar a Roma. Escritos con refinamiento poético, con talante lúdico y un tanto irónico, muy atentos a las escenas amorosas y a las peripecias eróticas, utilizando con desenfado los antiguos mitos clásicos, estos libros son tratados con ligereza, e incluso con "levedad", que es lo que confiere a su autor una modernidad indiscutible. Están inspirados por una misteriosa mujer, Corina, que no sabemos si corresponde a una figura real, pero que Los amores hicieron tan famosa como la Lesbia de Catulo, o la Cintia de Propercio.
