Anna Karenina - Wikipedia

18 Jan 2017 21:24 | Author: redtiger849 | Category: Methodology of an analysis research paper

Almost every year since 1901, the Swedish Academy  has apportioned one fifth of the interest from the fortune bequeathed by dynamite inventor  Alfred Nobel  to honor, as Nobel said in his will, “the person who shall have produced in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an ideal direction.”

Many of the greatest writers of the past 112 years have received the Nobel Prize in Literature , but there have been some glaring omissions right from the start. When Leo Tolstoy was passed over in 1901 (the prize went to the French poet Sully Prudhomme) he was so offended he refused later nominations. The list of great writers who were alive after 1901 but never received the prize is jaw-dropping. In addition to Tolstoy, it includes James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Mark Twain, Joseph Conrad, Anton Chekhov, Marcel Proust, Henry James, Henrik Ibsen, Émile Zola, Robert Frost, W.H. Auden, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jorge Luis Borges and Vladimir Nabokov.

    From the works of Francis Bacon and Daniel Defoe to those of Virginia Woolf and Martin Luther King, Jr., here you ll find more than 300 of the greatest essays and speeches composed by British and American authors over the past four centuries.

    Levity of the Age
    "We too are childish on this side of the Atlantic, though not quite so absurd, or cruel in our sports, as the French."

    Almost every year since 1901, the Swedish Academy  has apportioned one fifth of the interest from the fortune bequeathed by dynamite inventor  Alfred Nobel  to honor, as Nobel said in his will, “the person who shall have produced in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an ideal direction.”

    But the Nobel committee has honored many worthy writers, and today we’ve gathered together seven speeches by seven laureates. Our choice was restricted by the limitations of what is available online in English. We have focused on the short speeches traditionally given on December 10 of every year at the Nobel banquet in Stockholm. With the exception of short excerpts from Bertrand Russell’s lecture, we have passed over the longer Nobel lectures (which typically run about 40 minutes) presented to the Swedish Academy on a different day than the banquet.

    Anna Karenina ( Russian : «Анна Каренина» ; Russian pronunciation: [ˈanːə kɐˈrʲenʲɪnə] ) [1] is a novel by the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy , published in serial installments from 1873 to 1877 in the periodical The Russian Messenger. Tolstoy clashed with editor Mikhail Katkov over political issues that arose in the final installment (Tolstoy''''s negative views of Russian volunteers going to fight in Serbia ); therefore, the novel''''s first complete appearance was in book form in 1878.

    Anna Karenina is the tragic story of a married aristocrat/socialite and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story starts when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother''''s unbridled womanizing—something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others.

    William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was an English textile designer , poet , novelist , translator , and socialist activist. Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement , he was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. His literary contributions helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, while he played a significant role in propagating the early socialist movement in Britain.

    Morris is recognised as one of the most significant cultural figures of Victorian Britain ; though best known in his lifetime as a poet, he posthumously became better known for his designs. Founded in 1955, the William Morris Society is devoted to his legacy, while multiple biographies and studies of his work have seen publication. Many of the buildings associated with his life are open to visitors, much of his work can be found in art galleries and museums, and his designs are still in production.

    As far I know, Martin Luther King, Jr. never wrote a "letter to Birmingham". He did, however, write a letter from the Birmingham Jail. (I lived in the Birmingham area for over 30 years. I had ample opportunity to learn this.)
