History of the Thirty Years War, Volume 2 by SCHILLER, Friedrich
 
The History of the Thirty Years War is a five volume work, which followed his very successful History of the Revolt of the Netherlands. Written for a wider audience than Revolt, it is a vivid history, colored by Schiller’s own interest in the question of human freedom and his rationalist optimism.

Then he elaborates on how different modes, substances and relations of simple ideas (of the same ...

Life of Jesus Critically Examined, The by STRAUSS, David Friedrich

Marble Faun, The by HAWTHORNE, Nathaniel
 
The Marble Faun is Hawthorne's most unusual romance. Writing on the eve of the American Civil War, Hawthorne set his story in a fantastical Italy.

In the spring of 1858, Hawthorne was inspired to write his romance when he saw the Faun of Praxiteles in a Roman sculpture gallery. The theme, characteristic of Hawthorne, is guilt and the Fall of Man. The four main characters are Miriam, a beautiful painter who is co ...
