Senlin : A Biography

By: Conrad Aiken

Poetry

Excerpt: When the light drips through the shutters like the dew, // I arise, I face the sunrise, // And do the things my fathers learned to do. // Stars in the purple dusk above the rooftops // Pale in a saffron mist and seem to die, // And I myself on a swiftly tilting planet // Stand before a glass and tie my tie. // Vine leaves tap my window, // Dew-drops sing to the garden stones, // The robin chips in the chinaberry tree // Repeating three clear tones. // It is morn...

Thyrsis, A Monody

By: Matthew Arnold

Poetry

Excerpt: HOW changed is here each spot man makes or fills! // In the two Hinkseys nothing keeps the same; // The village street its haunted mansion lacks, // And from the sign is gone Sibylla's name, // And from the roofs the twisted chimney-stacks- // Are ye too changed, ye hills? // See, 'tis no foot of unfamiliar men // To-night from Oxford up your pathway strays! // Here came I often, often, in old days- // Thyrsis and I; we still had Thyrsis then. // Runs it not her...

The Bab Ballads - Part 5

Poetry

Excerpt: The Periwinkle Girl // I've often thought that headstrong youths // Of decent education, // Determine all-important truths, // With strange precipitation. // The ever-ready victims they, // Of logical illusions, // And in a self-assertive way // They jump at strange conclusions. // Now take my case: Ere sorrow could // My ample forehead wrinkle, // I had determined that I should // Not care to be a winkle. // A winkle, I would oft advance // With readiness provo...

Dome of Death

By: Rigby Taylor

Dome of Death is a slightly shocking and occasionally thought provoking romantic thriller about two young men who’d love to be as cool as James Bond in the face of extreme danger, but discover reality is not like fiction. When Max, the director of an Art Gallery in Queensland, falls to his death, Peter, the exhibiting artist who is also Max's ex-lover, unwillingly accepts the widow’s pleas to take over the job. After rescuing a strange young man from a raging sea, Pe...

Chapter One Exposing oneself in public is not for the faint-hearted. En masse and expertly illuminated the paintings gave viewers rather more insight into the private spaces of my mind than I’d bargained for. The fact that the gallery’s patrons were also baring their souls with every critical utterance and every painting bought was scant consolation – especially as no one was buying! After an hour of eavesdropping among the usual crush of wine-sipping social scrambl...

The Radar Game

By: Rebecca Grant

Physics Literature

Excerpt: Precision weapons and rapid targeting information mean little if aircraft are unable to survive engagements with enemy air defenses. In addition to costing the lives of pilots, high levels of attrition can ultimately affect the outcome of the theater campaign. One of the most critical factors in determining the success of an air operation is survivability. In the last several decades, the term survivability has been associated with analysis of how low observable...
