THE SAGA OF EIRIK THE RED - A Free Norse/Viking Saga: An Account of Eirik the Red's Discovery of America

The Saga of Erik the Red is thought to have been composed before 1265AD on the Norse exploration of North-America. The saga also details the events that led to Erik the Red's banishment to Greenland and Leif Ericson's preaching of Christianity as well as his discovery of Vinland (America) after his longship was blown off course. By geographical details, this place is thought to be present-day Newfoundland, and was probably the first European discovery of the American mainland, some five centuries before Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Antilles.

The saga also chronicles the life and expedition of Thorfinn Karlsefni and his wife Gudrid, characters also seen in the Greenland saga.

This translation is made from the version of the Saga printed in Dr. Gudbrand Vigfusson's Icelandic Prose Reader.

NOTE: It may be mentioned here that Carl Christian Rafn and the other Danish scholars who edited this elaborate work have concluded that Kjalarnes is the modern Cape Cod, Straumsfjordr is Buzzard's Bay, Straumsey is Martha's Vineyard, and Hop is on the shores of Mount Haup Bay, into which the river Taunton flows.

Sample poem...

We live in the echoes

We step inside mirrors

Lemon petals pave the way

I sleep in stages, sleep sublime

Walking pages never read again

I see the signs yet still forget

Imagining faces of the past

A rush of bliss splits the breeze

Where the peacemaker wanders

The crevices of the closed mind

He offers echoes of your stare

We live in the echoes

Patterns drawn upon a wall

Plunging ripples capture all

The raw beauty of the real

Where the Fool laughs his last

Is a time we'll never see

For he plays so beautifully

Daring to step beyond himself

Embracing all there is to see

With such wide open arms.

In the Spring of 1945

In the Spring of 1945The sky was clear and the sun was burning on Jaakov's face as he ran.

But the beauty of the sky did not change the fact that there was a war and he just had to watch the soldiers with the ugly crosses on the uniform shoot his parents and siblings.

And Elisa did not get out of hiding for four days, fearing that the men in the uniforms would find her and do terrible things to her.

Up to the heaven and back

Questioning is part of the life. A person often questions a lot when being in love. Personal introspection is often done when a loved one comes in our live! But, what is love? What is the definition of love? Are we doing it right? It is often a lifetime personal search the finding of our great love and the right person. What makes a person be the right for us? Why do we love that one particular person and not someone else?

The aim of this book isn't the story, nor does it give the answer to these questions and many more the reader would find inside the written text. Many could also appear between the lines while reading it. But it does not hold any answers; it only prompts the reader to find his own truth.

If you have at least once in your life felt or thought that you are doing something wrong in your love relationships, give it a try! Ask yourself all the questions placed inside the chapters. Review all statements that describe and partly define love, and give your own opinion on all of them. Do you love in the right way? What is the truth about love relationships?

This is not a love story, but a story about love.

How to Write a Children's Picture Book Volume III: Figures of Speech: 3

Many of us think of children's picture books as being written mostly with simple declarative sentences. What an eye-opener to learn that they are actually filled with delightful figures of speech. I am not talking here about the common figures of speech we learn about in grade school: simile, onomatopoeia, alliteration, hyperbole and personification. I am talking about more subtle and sophisticate...

The Cossacks

His Masterpiece (Classic Emile Zola)

His Masterpiece By Emile Zola L'oeuvre is the fourteenth novel in the Rougon-Macquart series by Emile Zola. It was first serialized in the periodical Gil Blas beginning in December 1885 before being published in novel form by Charpentier in 1886. The title, translated literally as "The Work" (as in work of art), is often rendered in English as The Masterpiece or His Masterpiece. It refers to the struggles of the protagonist Claude Lantier to paint a great work reflecting his talent and genius. L'oeuvre is a fictional account of Zola's friendship with Paul Cezanne and a fairly accurate portrayal of the Parisian art world in the mid 19th century. Zola and Cezanne grew up together in Aix-en-Provence, the model for Zola's Plassans, where Claude Lantier is born and receives his education. Like Cezanne, Claude Lantier is a revolutionary artist whose work is misunderstood by an art-going public hidebound by traditional subjects, techniques and representations. Many of the characteristics ascribed to Claude Lantier are a compound taken from the lives of several impressionist painters including Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, as well as Paul Cezanne. Zola's self-portrait can be seen in the character of the novelist Pierre Sandoz. The book is often blamed for ending the friendship between Cezanne and Zola. The story of a groundbreaking artist unable to live up to his potential must have seemed intensely personal to Cezanne; no correspondence exists between the two after a letter in which Cezanne thanks Zola for sending him the novel. The novel covers about 15 years, ending in 1870. Besides depicting the bohemian art world of 19th-century Paris, L'oeuvre explores the rise of Realism, Naturalism and Impressionism in painting. Zola also looks at contemporary sculpture, literature, architecture, music and journalism, as well as the commodification of art. In creating his portrayal of the Parisian art world Zola includes several characters who are composites of real-life art world re

The Raven: Illustrated (Illustrated Classics - The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe)

Illustrated Classics - The Raven by Edgar Allan PoeThe Raven"Story and 30 Original Illustrations"Edgar Allan PoeIllustrated by Gustave Dore;BRAND NEW EDITION"The Raven" is a narrative poem by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. First published in January 1845, the poem is often noted for its musicality, stylized language, and supernatural atmosphere. It tells of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught lover, tracing the man's slow fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to further instigate his distress with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore." The poem makes use of a number of folk, mythological, religious, and classical references.Poe claimed to have written the poem very logically and methodically, intending to create a poem that would appeal to both critical and popular tastes, as he explained in his 1846 follow-up essay, "The Philosophy of Composition." The poem was inspired in part by a talking raven in the novel Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of 'Eighty by Charles Dickens. Poe borrows the complex rhythm and meter of Elizabeth Barrett's poem "Lady Geraldine's Courtship," and makes use of internal rhyme as well as alliteration throughout."The Raven" was first attributed to Poe in print in the New York Evening Mirror on January 29, 1845. Its publication made Poe widely popular in his lifetime, although it did not bring him much financial success. The poem was soon reprinted, parodied, and illustrated. Critical opinion is divided as to the poem's literary status, but it nevertheless remains one of the most famous poems ever written."The Raven" follows an unnamed narrator on a dreary night in December who sits reading "forgotten lore" by a dying fire as a way to forget the death of his beloved Lenore. A "tapping at [his] chamber door" reveals nothing, but excites his soul to "burning." The tapping is repeated, slightly louder,
