Poetry - Percy Bryce Shelley, Emily Dickinson, Keats, Khalil Gibran 3. Works of Shakespeare (sigh! Remembering those days when I declared I would only love a man who got Shakespeare, naïveté - thy name is youth) 4. Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (the required fantasy series for every fantasy addict) 5. Books by Georgette Heyer (the required regency romance and humour series for any woman) 6. The Collected Short Stories of Roald Dahl 7. Erle Stanley Gardner - Perry Mason rocks!(even when the reader is in her thirties) 8. Books by P.G. Wodehouse - Who can leave Jeeves behind? 9.

My Picks for Turner Classic Movies for August Turner seems to have set up a streaming facility so that you can stream any film more than a day but less than a week after it showed up on TCM. Actually I would have preferred they set it up with completely different movies. But it could be a useful feature. Anyway, another month is coming. It is time to pick the films I recommend on Turner Classic Movies. TCM is showing half of what I think would be an ideal double feature. I am not sure what is going on in their minds that they did not take an evening and have the complete Three Musketeers and FOUR MUSKETEERS, particularly in this day of binge watching. All times are Eastern Daylight Saving Time. THE Three Musketeers (1973) The IMDB lists ten screen versions of Alexandre Dumas's THE Three Musketeers. I know of nobody who seriously contests that the best version is the 1973 version directed by Richard Lester and starring--get this--Michael York, Richard Chamberlain, Oliver Reed, Faye Dunaway, Charlton Heston ...

Without exception, the response to the Post-Gutenberg Revolution, by traditional publishers and the major chain bookstores, as well as most of the independents, has been to cry foul and seek ways to circle the wagons, attempting to close off all the more to the change that they are indisputably incapable of controlling.

Through the years, many great writers and philosophers have attempted to define love. Regrettably, none of them have been able to fully explain what love really is. However, many of them have succeeded in illustrating certain aspects of love. This compilation includes 16 great love quotes by famous writers and poets like Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Victor Hugo, & Voltaire. "The first symptom of love in a young man is shyness; the first symptom in a young woman is boldness." Victor Hugo "Love is a promise; love is a souvenir; once given, it is never forgotten; never let it disappear." John Lennon "When you fish for love, bait with your heart and not with your brain." Mark Twain "Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, and penetrates walls to arrive at its destination." Maya Angelou "Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind." Williams Shakespeare "True love always makes a man better, no matter what woman inspires it". Alexandre Dumas "Lov ...

Alexandre Dumas: Greatest French writer was of… African descent Alexandre Dumas (source: Wikipedia) Alexandre Dumas (source: Wikipedia) Dear All, I was so surprised when I learned that Alexandre Dumas, yes… the writer of the “Three Musketeers” was just recently (2002) indicted into the Pantheon of Paris, you know… the place where the remains of the most famous/distinguished French citizens are buried. I wondered why?… because the Three Musketeers is the most acclaimed French book adapted to screen, movies, and theater. I wondered why?… because The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo are among the most read books by a French author in the world… why only in 2002, 132 years after his death? when Victor Hugo had been indicted in 1885? why since Rousseau, Voltaire, Emile Zola, had all been indicted, while the most read French author, Alexandre Dumas’ remains were not? Well… you’ve guessed it right: Alexandre Dumas was Black! Yes… the great French writer was just like the Rus ...

On this day in literary history: A 23-year-old Alexandre Dumas fought his first duel in 1825. Aand his pants fell down. Hopefully the Musketeer author's next duel was less embarrassing.
This date in the arts: - Jan. 5, 1825 - 23-year-old Alexandre Dumas (Sr.) embarked on his self-proclaimed "career as a romantic" by fighting his first duel, and having his pants fall down. Dumas's memoirs are about as reliable as his mountain of historical fiction and drama, but they tell the pants story in glorious, comedy-of-errors, "Three Musketeers" detail. - Jan. 5, 1948 - Warner Brothers-Pathe showed the very first color newsreel. The footage was of the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rose Bowl football classic. - Jan. 5, 1961 - "Mr. Ed" debuted. The show would run for six years. - Jan. 5, 1998 - U.S. Representative Sonny Bono died in skiing accident.

Is there clear evidence of his vision in his work? Does he love himself and his people? Does he have a sense of humor? How well does he recover when he stumbles and falls? Does he lie? Steal? Not seeing lying or stealing wrong when others do it? Can he admit mistakes? How does he handle them? Are his gifts to you superficial, popular trinkets (regardless of monetary value) or us the bulk of his giving based on what you need, without you having to ask for it?

Jules Verne The traveler who never leaves his cabinet – that’s what his contemporaries used to call Jules Verne. He was a person with an extraordinary lust for life whose fantasy had no limits – often hailed as the father of science fiction, he literally taught us how to dream. Verne began writing in earnest when at the Sorbonne, where he was supposed to be studying law. His father was horrified but, encouraged by Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo, Verne went on to write some of the most popular and most translated books of all time. Blurring the lines between imagination and reality, 'Great Dreamers' is a series of programs devoted to outstanding thinkers, pioneers and path breakers in science and the arts, whose daring ideas and inventions would become landmarks in our history.

INDIA’S MAN IN THE IRON MASK, As with the legendary hero of the Alexandre Dumas novel, his greatness made Subhas Chandra Bose a threat to his rivals leading to his exile and erasure from history books. NS Rajaram looks at the mystery surrounding Netaji’s life In the novel Vicomte de Bragelonne by the French writer Alexandre Dumas, an innocent man is imprisoned for life and his identity sealed behind an iron mask which cannot be removed. The reason? He happens to be the twin brother of King Louis IV, then ruling France, and might have proved a better and more popular ruler. Alert to the threat he posed, Louis had him exiled for life with his identity concealed forever behind an iron mask. When the details of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s disappearance and exile become fully known, we may find a surreal similarity between Eustache Dauger, one of the names of the masked man, and Bose. For a man so famous — he was the most popular Indian leader at the time of Indian independence — surprisingly little ...
