Experience a taste of one of the English language's foremost writers of the 20th century. Originally published in 1923, Ernest Hemingway's Three Stories and Ten Poems feature some of the expatriate's lesser known, but still wonderful, works.
The stories and poems include:
• "Up in Michigan"
• "Out of Season"
• "My Old Man"
• "Chapter Heading"
• And more!
Originally privately published in Paris, Three Stories and Ten Poems holds an interesting history. The three stories "Up in Michigan," "Out of Season," and "My Old Man" were first seen in this collection, but "Up in Michigan" was banned and not considered publishable in America until 1938 because of its blatant sexuality. In addition, this original publication of the three stories is all that remains of Hemingway's early works after his suitcase containing the originals was stolen.

Few classic works of literature have excited such enduring popular interest among the general public as Frankenstein. But suppose the characters--Victor Frankenstein, Captain Robert Walton, and, yes, even the "monster"--had shared their tale in tweets? #Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus hilariously reimagines Mary Shelley's classic gothic novel in about 200 tweets, each 280 characters or less.
A rainy November night, under dying candle, I infused the spark. A gasp! A convulsion of limbs! A yellow eye opened. WTF had I done?

This volume contains four great works (O Pioneers!, The Song of the Lark, My Ántonia, and One of Ours) by the author who created the first autonomous and successful women's heroes in American literature. Willa Cather is one of America's most treasured writers. Her childhood in the woodlands of Virginia and on the prairies of Nebraska formed the inspiration for many of her novels, and her devotion to education provided the basis for her lifetime of achievement. Many critics have stated that Cather might have won a Nobel Prize had she not been a woman in a time of gender inequality.
The time will come when she'll be ranked above Hemingway."Leon Edel
