Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Should we not laugh to see a horse in corsets? The time is coming when we shall so laugh to see a woman." - The Forerunner Volume 1 (1909-1910) by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. In this anthology collection of key writings by prominent humanitarian and pro-equality writer, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the reader is afforded a fascinating insight into the lives and societal challenges of women in the early 20th century. Through a selection of expertly written poems, essays, and fictional stories as well as non-fiction narratives, the monthly magazine excerpts include lesser-known works such as ‘Our Androcentric Culture; or, The Man-Made World’, the poem ‘Then This’, and an essay entitled ‘A Small God And a Large Goddess’. The original writing showcases a progressive thinker with a strong female voice, who was ahead of her time in terms of feminism and women’s rights, in this selection of politically-inspired pieces from 1909. Charlotte Perkins Gilman, also known as Charlotte Perkins Stetson, was born on 3rd July 1860 in Connecticut, USA. Her early family life was troubled, with her father abandoning his wife and family; a move which strongly influenced her feminist political leanings and advocator of women’s rights. After working as a tutor and painter, Perkins – a self-declared humanist and tomboy – began to work as a writer of short stories, novels, non-fiction pieces, and poetry. Her best-known work is her semi-autobiographical short story, inspired by her post-natal depression, entitled ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’, which was published in 1892 and made into a film in 2011. Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a member of the American National Women's Hall of Fame and strongly believed that "the domestic environment oppressed women through the patriarchal beliefs upheld by society". A believer in euthanasia, she was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer in January 1932 and subsequently took her own life in August 1935, writing in her suicide note that she "chose chloroform over cancer".

Gibran's work covers such themes as justice, religion, science, free will, love, happiness, the soul, the body, and death. He is widely considered to have been one of the most important figures in Arabic poetry and literature during the first half of the twentieth century. First published three years before “The Prophet” in 1920, “The Forerunner” is a collection of 24 tales that contain much that is present in his masterpiece and for which he is famous: beautiful prose writing full of wisdom, insight, and deep humanity. Contents include: “God’s Fool”, “Love”, “The King-Hermit”, “The Lion’s Daughter”, “Tyranny”, “The Saint”, “The Plutocrat”, “The Greater Self”, “War and the Small Nations”, “Critics”, “Poets”, “The Weather-cock”, “The King of Aradus”, “Out of My Deeper Heart”, etc. Other notable works by this author include: “Music” (1905), “Rebellious Spirits” (1908), and “Broken Wings” (1912).

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The death of a loved one can be very dramatic. And if the death is unexpected it can be even more devastating. In the novel The Forerunner, Edmund Ausmus has lived his life shadowed not only by guilt he has felt since the death of his brother Richard during World War II, but also by the anger he had directed toward his father whom he partly blamed for his brothers death. After a twenty-one year self-imposed exile, Edmund returns to his childhood home in the hopes that by sharing his feelings with his sister Cordelia he might come to terms with his guilt and anger. But the reunion with Cordelia raises more questions than answers when she informs him that Richard never intended on returning from the war, that he wanted to die there. Confused and unsettled by the news, Edmund embarks on a journey to fi nd the truth concerning his brothers death. Through conversations Edmund has with Cordelia, and by confronting memories of his past, Edmund learns things about his family he never knew. The secrets Edmund uncovers begins to shed light on the reasons some of the events of the past had transpired the way they had. And by delving even deeper into Richards past and by talking with those who knew Richard before the war, Edmund is able to learn the unsettling secret which drove Richard to the choice he made about his life. When his journey is complete Edmund is able to reconcile himself with the past and accept his place in the family he for years had run away from.

This book was released on 2020-08-29 with total page 266 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Predicated upon the towers of collapse, while T.S. Eliot, the representative modernist, in order to re-construct his culture out of the debris of its imperialist past, concluded his Waste Land (1922) by looking Eastward, into the all-pervading “shantih” of the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, Kahlil Gibran, a Lebanese American, authored The Prophet (1923) to deconstruct such enterprise and retrieve a culture that was swirling in-between Darwinian metaphors and Nietzschean Nihilism. He who was exterior to the ‘omnipotent definitions’ of the West, saw in “Beauty” the “eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.” So, to him, “you are eternity and you are the mirror.” This book is a reading of Kahlil Gibran's life and works: his life as a text and his works as the terrains of a never-ending journey. It opens up those fissures and ruptures that make Gibran and his writings relevant vis-á-vis the socio-political, cultural and religious urgencies that the world is grappling with today. Often misconstrued as a mystic or an Oriental Wise Man, Gibran dwells in an amorphous placeless-ness within the academic space and outside of it. “Forerunner” in its own way, this book, by unfolding the process of 'reading' as a mode of travelling, subverts such stereotypes and tries to reveal to the readers that 'outlandish' lonely intellectual who, through his works, fashioned a self and a land ‘out of place’, rather in a ‘non-place’, for dismantling and up-setting monolithic cultures and their decadent notions.

This book was released on 2015-05-04 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Volume 54 Sermons 3073-3124 Charles Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) is one of the church’s most famous preachers and Christianity’s foremost prolific writers. Called the “Prince of Preachers,” he was one of England's most notable ministers for most of the second half of the nineteenth century, and he still remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations today. His sermons have spread all over the world, and his many printed works have been cherished classics for decades. In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to more than 10 million people, often up to ten times each week. He was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years. He was an inexhaustible author of various kinds of works including sermons, commentaries, an autobiography, as well as books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more. Spurgeon was known to produce powerful sermons of penetrating thought and divine inspiration, and his oratory and writing skills held his audiences spellbound. Many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature. Edward Walford wrote in Old and New London: Volume 6 (1878) quoting an article from the Times regarding one of Spurgeon’s meetings at Surrey: “Fancy a congregation consisting of 10,000 souls, streaming into the hall, mounting the galleries, humming, buzzing, and swarming—a mighty hive of bees—eager to secure at first the best places, and, at last, any place at all. After waiting more than half an hour—for if you wish to have a seat you must be there at least that space of time in advance—Mr. Spurgeon ascended his tribune. To the hum, and rush, and trampling of men, succeeded a low, concentrated thrill and murmur of devotion, which seemed to run at once, like an electric current, through the breast of every one present, and by this magnetic chain the preacher held us fast bound for about two hours. It is not my purpose to give a summary of his discourse. It is enough to say of his voice, that its power and volume are sufficient to reach every one in that vast assembly; of his language, that it is neither high-flown nor homely; of his style, that it is at times familiar, at times declamatory, but always happy, and often eloquent; of his doctrine, that neither the 'Calvinist' nor the 'Baptist' appears in the forefront of the battle which is waged by Mr. Spurgeon with relentless animosity, and with Gospel weapons, against irreligion, cant, hypocrisy, pride, and those secret bosom-sins which so easily beset a man in daily life; and to sum up all in a word, it is enough to say of the man himself, that he impresses you with a perfect conviction of his sincerity.” More than a hundred years after his death, Charles Spurgeon’s legacy continues to effectively inspire the church around the world. For this reason, Delmarva Publications has chosen to publish the complete works of Charles Spurgeon.
