Death and the Optimistic Prophecy in Vergil's Aeneid (Princeton Legacy Library)

Right here James O'Hara indicates how the misleading nature of prophecy within the Aeneid complicates evaluation of the poem's angle towards its hero's fulfillment and towards the way forward for Rome less than Augustus Caesar. This shut research of the language and rhetorical context of the prophecies unearths that they often suppress discouraging fabric: the gods ship promising messages to Aeneas and others to spur them on of their struggles, yet those struggles usually bring about premature deaths or different failures in basic terms darkly hinted at through the prophecies.

Sketches of Young Gentlemen and Young Couples: with Sketches of Young Ladies by Edward Caswall (Oxford World's Classics)

Following the outstanding acclaim for Sketches via Boz and The Pickwick Papers, Dickens produced brief volumes of Sketches of younger gents and younger undefined, in accordance with the looks of Sketches of younger women via 'Quiz'.

Sample text

Un peu de cohérence. Barthélemy mâchonna quelques secondes ce qu’il avait à dire. – On a découvert le cadavre d’un jeune avocat parisien. Un homicide. – Où ? – Colombes. La piscine olympique. – Noyé ? – Brûlé vif, à l’essence, et… – Et ? – Il avait un pneu… autour du cou. Lola reposa son verre. Pendant une seconde étirée à l’infini, les visages de Maxime et de Barthélemy se distendirent. Elle se laissa glisser sur le carrelage. Elle allait s’évanouir, alors autant passer en position horizontale.

Dans son sang, le labo avait décelé un puissant décontractant. Kidjo avait été drogué, séquestré, torturé puis éliminé avec la même cruauté que celle déployée à Colombes. Le pneu qui enserrait son cou avait été incendié à l’essence, comme pour l’autre homicide. Différence notable : l’intensité de la torture infligée avant la mort. Elle ne semblait que mentale pour Vidal. Kidjo, lui, avait été retrouvé à moitié nu, torse et bras tailladés au cutter, brûlés à la lampe à souder. Sans compter les doigts mutilés.

Juché sur le plongeoir, un technicien prenait des photos. Son collègue sondait l’eau bleutée avec un filet monté sur tige métallique. Deux hommes relevaient traces papillaires et ADN éventuels. Sacha leur souhaita bien du plaisir : les scènes de crime offraient rarement pareille ampleur olympique. Sacha savait qu’en s’approchant du corps, il progressait sur le territoire de la cruauté. Il l’avait su dès le premier coup de fil : il fallait être un enfoiré de classe internationale pour incendier un homme aux abords d’une piscine en lui faisant comprendre que le plongeon salvateur était interdit.
