Senlin : A Biography

By: Conrad Aiken

Poetry

Excerpt: His Dark Origins - // Senlin sits before us, and we see him. // He smokes his pipe before us, and we hear him. // Is he small, with reddish hair, // Does he light his pipe with meditative stare, // And a pointed flame reflected in both eyes? // Is he sad and happy and foolish and wise? // Did no one see him enter the doors of the city, // Looking above him at the roofs and trees and skies? // 'I stepped from a cloud', he says, 'as evening fell; // I walked on th...

My race is run; // And soon amidst the ever-silent dead // I must repose, it may be, half forgot. // Yes! I have broke the hard and bitter bread // For many a year, and with those who trembled not // To buckle on their armor for the fight, // And set themselves against the tyrant's lot; // And I have never bowed me to his might, // Nor kne...

The Divine Comedy of Dante

By: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

INFERNO. Inferno: Canto I, Midway upon the journey of our life I found myself within a forest dark, For the straightforward pathway had been lost. Ah me! how hard a thing it is to say What was this forest savage, rough, and stern, Which in the very thought renews the fear. So bitter is it, death is little more; But of the good to treat, which there I found, Speak will I of the other things I saw there. I cannot well repeat how there I entered, So full was I of slumber at...

"In fact, I had never spoken to her even a single word, though she continued to send me signals for initiating a dialogue with her. I had to go to fetch my daily quota of water from the water-tap, provided at the back of her tenement, for all the four segments, in the vicinity. Almost every time, we had to place our buckets or utensils, in a queue, while waiting for our turn. Being shy of passing through the front lane, while approaching the water-tap, I preferred to wal...
