This 1905 publication is an informative biography of American philosopher and historian John Fiske. Perry, who was a contemporary of Fiske's at Harvard, gives an insider's view of life at the institution during the Civil War. Perry opens his narrative, The life of a man of letters is like a voyage: that is the most successful in which the least happens." The author asserts that the life of John Fiske has its own place within history, and is a story from which lessons can be learned

The Princess of Cleves by La Fayette ( Book )
12 editions published between 1891 and 1912 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Poised between the fading world of chivalric romance and a new psychological realism, Madame de Lafayette's novel of passion and self-deception marks a turning-point in the history of the novel. When it first appeared--anonymously--in 1678 in the heyday of French classicism, it aroused fierce controversy among critics and readers, in particular for the extraordinary confession which forms the climax of the story. Having long been considered a classic, it is now regarded as a landmark in the history of women's writing." "In this new translation, The Princesse de Cleves is accompanied by two shorter works also attributed to Madame de Lafayette, The Princesse de Montpensier and The Comtesse de Tende. Book jacket."--Jacket
A history of Greek literature by Thomas Sergeant Perry ( Book )
4 editions published in 1890 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Virgin soil by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev ( Book )
8 editions published in 1877 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turgenev was the most liberal-spirited and unqualifiedly humane of all the great nineteenth-century Russian novelists, and in "Virgin Soil," his biggest and most ambitious work, he sought to balance his deep affection for his country and his people with his growing apprehensions about what their future held in store. At the heart of the book is the story of a young man and a young woman, torn between love and politics, who struggle to make headway against the complacency of the powerful, the inarticulate misery of the powerless, and the stifling conventions of provincial life. This rich and complex book, at once a love story, a devastating, and bitterly funny social satire, and, perhaps most movingly of all, a heartfelt celebration of the immense beauty of the Russian countryside, is a tragic masterpiece in which one of the world's finest novelists confronts the enduring question of the place of happiness in a political world
