Description : Read Now Toilers Of The Sea by Victor Hugo and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. introductionvictor hugo was thinking much of Æschylus and his prometheus at the time he conceived the figure of gilliatt, heroic warrer with the elements. but it is to a creature of the gothic mind like byron's manfred, and not to any earlier, or classic, type of the eternal rebellion against fate or time or circumstance, that hugo's readers will be tempted to turn for the fellow to his guernsey hero:"my joy was in the wilderness—to breathethe difficult air of the iced mountain's top,where the birds dare not build—nor insects wingflit o'er the herbless granite; or to plungeinto the torrent, and to roll alongon the swift whirl of the new-breaking waveof river-stream, or ocean, in their flow."the island of guernsey was gilliatt's alp and sea-solitude, where he, too, had his avalanches waiting to fall "like foam from the round ocean of old hell." and as byron figured his own revolt against the bonds in manfred, so hugo, being in exile, put himself with lyrical and rhetorical impetuosity into the island marcou and child of destiny that he concocted with "a little sand and a little blood and a deal of fantasy" in the years 1864 and 1865. there is a familiar glimpse of the hugo household to be had in the first winter of its transference to the channel islands, years before les travailleurs was written, which betrays the mood from which finally sprang this concrete fable of the man-at-odds. it was the end of november 1852, and a father and his younger son sat in a room of a house of marine terrace, jersey—a plain, unpicturesque house; square, hard in outline, and newly whitewashed,—methodism, said hugo, in stones and mortar. outside its windows the rain fell and the wind blew: the house was like a thing benumbed by the angry noise. the two inmates sat plunged in thought, possibly thinking of the sad significance of these beginnings of winter and of exile which had arrived together. at length the son (françois[pg viii] hugo) asked the father what he meant to do during their exile, which he had already predicted would be long? the father said, "i shall look at the sea." then came a silence, broken by a question as to what the son would do? to which he replied that he would translate shakespeare.

Description : Read Now The Toilers Of The Sea by Victor Hugo and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a fisherman encounters all the fury, and caprice, and treachery of outer nature in order to win a woman whom on his return he finds to have unconsciously but irrevocably lost her heart to another. but this plainest of stories is worked into genuine tragedy by an exercise of poetic power which, at least in some portions of its display, has very rarely been surpassed in literature. it is difficult to dissent from those who fancy they discover in the author's three volumes a romance, an epic poem, and a drama of real life. there is also in the volumes a charming idyl, full of grace, sweetness, and simplicity. if there be anyone who can rise from the perusal of the book without feeling not only deeply moved, but also enlightened, chastened, and, for at least the moment, improved, "let no such man be trusted."'

Description : Read Now Toilers Of The Sea by Victor Hugo and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a word written on a white page christmas day in the year 182- was somewhat remarkable in the island of guernsey. snow fell on that day. in the channel islands a frosty winter is uncommon, and a fall of snow is an event. on that christmas morning, the road which skirts the seashore from st. peter's port to the vale was clothed in white. from midnight till the break of day the snow had been falling. towards nine o'clock, a little after the rising of the wintry sun, as it was too early yet for the church of england folks to go to st. sampson's, or for the wesleyans to repair to eldad chapel, the road was almost deserted. throughout that portion of the highway which separates the first from the second tower, only three foot-passengers could be seen. these were a child, a man, and a woman. walking at a distance from each other, these wayfarers had no visible connection. the child, a boy of about eight years old, had stopped, and was looking curiously at the wintry scene. the man walked behind the woman, at a distance of about a hundred paces. like her he was coming from the direction of the church of st. sampson. the appearance of the man, who was still young, was something between that of a workman and a sailor. he wore his working-day clothes—a kind of guernsey shirt of coarse brown stuff, and trousers partly concealed by tarpaulin leggings—a costume which seemed to indicate that, notwithstanding the holy day, he was going to no place of worship. his heavy shoes of rough leather, with their soles covered with large nails, left upon the snow, as he walked, a print more like that of a prison lock than the foot of a man. the woman, on the contrary, was evidently dressed for church. she wore a large mantle of black silk, wadded, under which she had coquettishly adjusted a dress of irish poplin, trimmed alternately with white and pink; but for her red stockings, she might have been taken for a parisian. she walked on with a light and free step, so little suggestive of the burden of life that it might easily be seen that she was young. her movements possessed that subtle grace which indicates the most delicate of all transitions—that soft intermingling, as it were, of two twilights—the passage from the condition of a child to that of womanhood. the man seemed to take no heed of her.

Description : Read Now The Toilers Of The Sea Volume 1 by Victor Hugo and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. not indexed. not illustrated. 1888 edition. excerpt: ... chapter vil a hauntkd house, whose tenant is haunted by dreams. gilliatt was a man of dreams; hence his daring, hence also his timidity. on many things he had ideas which were peculiarly his own. there was in his character perhaps something of the visionary and the trauscendentalist. hallucinations may haunt the peasant, like martin, no less than the king, like henry iv. there are times when the unknown reveals itself in startling ways to the spirit of man. a sudden rent in the veil of darkness will make manifest things hitherto unseen, and then close again upon the mysteries within. sometimes such visions effect transfigurations. they convert a poor camel-driver into a mahomet; a peasant girl tending her goats into a joan of arc. solitude generates a certain amount of sublime exaltation. it is like the smoke arising from the burning bush. a mysterious lucidity of mind results, which converts the student into a seer, and the poet into a prophet: herein we find a key to the mysteries of horeb, kedron, ombos; to the intoxication of castalian laurels, the revelations of the month busion. hence, too, we have peleia at dodona, phemonoe at delphos, trophonius in lebadea, ezekiel on the chebar, and jerome in the thebais. more frequently this visionary state overwhelms and stupefies its victim. there is such a thing as a divine besottedness. the fakir bears about with him the burden of his vision, as the cretin his goitre. luther holding converse with devils in his garret at wittenburg, pascal shutting out the view of the infernal regions with the screen of his cabinet, the african obi conversing with the white-faced god bossum, are all phases of the same phenomenon, diversely interpreted by the minds in which they manifest themselves, according...

Description : Read Now Beasts Of The Deep by Edited by Jon Hackett and Seán Harrington and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. beasts of the deep: sea creatures and popular culture offers its readers an in-depth and interdisciplinary engagement with the sea and its monstrous inhabitants; through critical readings of folklore, weird fiction, film, music, radio and digital games. within the text there are a multitude of convergent critical perspectives used to engage and explore fictional and real monsters of the sea in media and folklore. the collection features chapters from a variety of academic perspectives; post- modernism, psychoanalysis, industrial-organisational analysis, fandom studies, sociology and philosophy are featured. under examination are a wide range of narratives and media forms that represent, reimagine and create the kraken, mermaids, giant sharks, sea draugrs and even the weird creatures of h.p. lovecraft. beasts of the deep offers an expansive study of our sea-born fears and anxieties, that are crystallised in a variety of monstrous forms. repeatedly the chapters in the collection encounter the contemporary relevance of our fears of the sea and its inhabitants – through the dehumanising media depictions of refugees in the mediterranean to the encroaching ecological disasters of global warming, pollution and the threat of mass marine extinction.
