  • Cultural Notes
  • 1. Noah Webster (1758-1843) a US educator and
    author, best known for his American Dictionary of
    the English Language (1828). He also helped to
    establish standard American spelling of English
    with The Elementary Spelling Book (1783). His
    name is now used on many dictionaries published
    by different US companies.

7
  • 2. Charles Dickens (1812-1870) an English writer
    of novels who combined great writing with the
    ability to write popular stories full of
    interesting characters. His many books are mostly
    about life in Victorian England and often
    describe the harsh conditions in which poor
    people lived. His early novels, which include
    Pickwick Papers and Oliver Twist, were written in
    parts for magazines. His later books include
    David Copperfield, A Tale of Two Cities and Great
    Expectations

8
  • 3. Walter Scott (1771-1832) a Scottish author
    and poet. Most of his poetry and his historical
    novels are based on the traditions and history of
    Scotland, especially the border region. His most
    famous poems include The Lay of the Last Minstrel
    and The Lady of the Lake, and his best known
    novels include Waverley, Rob Roy and Ivanhoe. All
    were extremely popular during his life and
    influenced many writers in Britain and Europe.

9
  • 4. Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) a Scottish
    writer of novels. He is best known for his famous
    children's adventure stories Treasure Island and
    Kidnapped, but he also wrote poetry for children
    and the well-known adult psychological novel The
    Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr.Hyde. Because of
    poor health Stevenson went to live on the island
    of Samoa in the Pacific for the last few years of
    his life.
  •  

10
  • 5. Jane Eyre a novel (1847) by Charlotte Bronte.
    Jane Eyre is a private teacher for the daughter
    of Edward Rochester. Jane and Mr Rochester fall
    in love and are about to marry when she discovers
    that he already has a wife, who is mentally ill.
    Years later the lovers meet again and marry,
    although Rochester has by this time been badly
    injured in a fire. The novel is still popular,
    mainly for the contrast in character between Jane
    and Rochester.

11
  • 6. Trilby a novel written by George Louis
    Palmella Busson Du Maurier (1834-1896), English
    artist and writer, born in Paris. In 1858 he
    began to work as a graphic artist. His
    caricatures for Punch, Once a Week, and The
    Cornhill Magazine, in which he satirized the
    middle and upper classes, are of historical value
    in portraying the fashionable social life of his
    time. He illustrated works by the English
    novelists William Makepeace Thackeray, George
    Meredith, etc.

12
  • 7. The Woman in White a novel written by
    (William) Wilkie Collins (1824-1889), English
    writer, often regarded as the originator of
    detective fiction. He was born in London.
    Unsuccessful at business and law, he preferred to
    write. In 1851 he began a close association with
    Charles Dickens, with whom he collaborated on the
    novel No Thoroughfare (1867). Collins's mystery
    thriller The Woman in White (1860) and the
    detective story The Moonstone (1868), which first
    appeared in periodicals edited by Dickens, are
    considered masterpieces of their respective
    genres

13
  • 8. Green Mansions a novel written by William
    Henry Hudson who was an English
    novelist,naturalist, and ornithologist. The
    novel's title refers to a forest where the
    protagonist encounters a tiny girl of the woods,
    a figure symbolic of the wilderness's unsullied
    beauty. The book is for-
  • ward-looking in its ecological warning against
    civilization's impact on nature. Both his
    fictionaland nonfictional writings reflect a
    romantic regard for nature and its inhabitants.

    Sir H(enry) Rider Haggard (1856-1925),English

    who narrates the story in the first person, and
    two other Europeans travel to the remote interior
    of Africa in search of a lost friend. They find
    adventure, mystery, terror, and the legendary
    diamond mines of King Solomon. Haggard apparently
    drew inspiration for his tale from the ancient
    ruins in Zimbabwe.

    Finn (1885), but he also wrote travel books and
    essays, many of them based on his experiences of
    life on the Mississippi River. His other books

    baseball player, eventually published as You Know
    Me, Al (1916). In Treat 'Era Rough (1918)

    lives of ordinary Americans with satirical humor.

    Grimm (1786-1859).
  • The Grimm brothers were attracted to old
    German folktales, which they collected from many
    sources and published as Household Tales (2
    volumes, 1812-1815 trans. 1884). The
    collection, expanded in 1857, is known as Grimm's
    Fairy Tales. The brothers collaborated on
    numerous other works. In 1854 they published the
    first volume of the standard German dictionary,
    which was completed by other scholars in 1954.

    author, whose 150 stories for children such as
    The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor's New Clothes, The

    world literature and have been translated into
    more than 80 languages and have inspired plays,
    ballets, films, and works of sculpture and
    painting. Born in Odense, he suffered from
    poverty and neglect during his childhood, and

  • merchant, discovers Ali Baba's new wealth, he
    demands an explanation. The next day Qasim visits
    the cave and greedily gathers as much treasure as
    he can, but forgets the formula for leaving the
    cave. He is found and killed and the thieves soon
    trace him to Ali Baba. They plan to kill him too,
    but Ali Baba's slave Murganah, discovers and
    foils their scheme. In gratitude, Ali Baba frees
    Murganah and marriesher (in some variants of the
    story, he marries her to his son).

22
  • 16. Aesop (620?-560? B.C.)" ancient Greek writer
    of fables, who is supposed to have been a freed
    slave from Thrace. His name became attached to a
    collection of beast fables long transmitted
    through oral tradition. The beast fables are part
    of the common culture of the Indo-European
  • peoples and constitute perhaps the most widely
    read collection of fables in world literature.

    British stories, who is said to have lived in

    Tuck, Little John and Will Scarlet, and his lover
    was Maid
  • Marian. Together they robbed rich people and gave
    money to poor people, and their enemy was the
    Sheriff of Nottingham. There is no evidence that
    Robin Hood ever existed but there are many
    stories about him and many films have been made
    about his adventures. In these he is often shown
    wearing clothes made of a material called Lincoln
    green, and holding a bow.

24
  • 18. King Arthur (5th or 6th century) a king of
    England who led the Britons in battles against
    the Saxons. There are many stories about King
    Arthur, e.g. that he pulled his sword Excalibur
    from a stone, and that he sat with his knights at
    a Round Table. Nobody knows if the stories are
    true but they are very popular and have been used
    in poems, plays and films.

25
  • 19. St. George a national saint of England. Many
    people believe he was a Christian martyr (person
    who is killed because of his or her religious

    often shown in pictures fighting the dragon

    Orléans, national heroine and patron saint of
    France, who united the nation at a critical hour
    and decisively turned the Hundred Years' War in
    France's favor. Although Joan had united the
    French behind Charles and had put an end to
    English dreams of hegemony over France,

26
  • Charles opposed any further campaigns against the
    English. Therefore, it was without royal support
    that Joan conducted (1430) a military operation
    against the English at Compiègne, near Paris, She
    was captured by Burgundian soldiers, who sold her
    to their English allies. The English then turned
    her over to an ecclesiastical court at Rouen to
    be tried for heresy and sorcery. After 14 months
    of interrogation, she was accused of wrongdoing
    in wearing masculine dress and of heresy for
    believing she was directly responsible to God
    rather than to the Roman Catholic Church. The
    court condemned her to death. On May 30, 1431,
    Joan was burned at the stake in the Old Market
    Square at Rouen.

    Lilliput, where the people are all tiny,
    Brobdingnag, where the people are all giants,
