Excerpt from Neptune's Isle and Other Plays for Children King. (To Leon.) Deliver all these letters to my friends, Thy hosts in the Ionian lands of Greece. That you will thrive I know: there is some gift That makes men love thee, in thy countenance, And they receive thee as a deity. Leon Perhaps because they know I am a prince. King Enough of that, - a bookish contemplation. Youth feeds upon imaginary facts. You'd be a closet Plato: you in ink Would drown the hope of a just-peeping mind. Leon I thought myself contented with Troezene, And with the daily brightness of the fields, - My books to sweeten statecraft, and my heart Bent on the bettering of all my folk. So thought I to live out a useful day Sunny and unambitious. But I know My thoughts are immature. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Author: Charles Alan Long
This book is a compilation of poems written by inspiration by Professor Emeritus Charles Alan Long, that reflect a long career of scholarship with many historical and lyrical expressions hidden by layers of research and teaching. A chronology of sorts, it begins in Dr. Long’s youth in college over sixty years ago, and continued until he was 80, as a teacher, professor of research, museum director, soldier, with success in bio-mathematics, natural history, as a philosopher, critic, and member of a progressive family. Some current, practical problems studied from the vantage of evolutionist, ecologist, biblical critic, naturalist, and offended American include the sudden rise of marijuana, political rhetoric, usury beyond decency, and by liberals and conservatives alike the erosion of personal liberty, especially of speech and universities. But the poems, from laments, to loves, to joy, to pathos and death, poverty to wealth, nature, art, music, and poetry itself are presented in almost musical sadness or joy. The history of an intellectual’s scholarly travels, whereas some poems are for children, some for society, some attacking evils, some praising good people, with merit even in deference to religions, many nations, and his beloved homeland. The poems are in large part visits into nostalgia and sentiment. Cultures of many peoples in many nations are described, as are many situations in America. There is, of course, an American core, but surely this poet loves good peoples and the history of Greece, France, Scotland, Africa, Russia, and other places. Loves genuine for many women inspired many lovely poems, a lot of romance. But profound in its argument is love for the poor and unhappy people, love for art, nature, philosophy, even sports, science and math, even religions. It becomes unified by reason, his active caring, and his bursts of singing. Much attention is given to geography, history, science and nature.

Climate change impacts are scale and context specific, and cities are likely to bear some of the greatest costs. In recent years cities have begun to craft their own climate change responses against the backdrop of the reluctance displayed by nation-states in committing to emissions reductions and managing the consequences of climate change. Climate Change at the City Scale presents a fresh contribution to climate change literature, which has largely neglected the role of cities in spite of their increasingly important role in the global economy. The book focuses on the impacts of climate change in the rapidly evolving city of Cape Town, and captures the experiences of the Cape Town Climate Change Think Tank, a hybrid knowledge partnership which has produced research on a range of urban governance, impacts, mitigation and adaptation challenges by the City. Cape Town has long been acknowledged as an innovator in the area of urban environmental management, notwithstanding its limited resources to manage the demand for a more resilient and equitable future. By documenting the work and experiences of the City's efforts to define its own climate future, the book provides a provocative case study of the way in which the science-policy interface can be managed to inform urban transformation.

A day at the fabled amusement park Isles of Wonder turns deadly when a world-wide biological attack kills every adult, leaving behind only the kids to fend for themselves. Isolated from the world, unsure of what lies ahead, the young survivors assemble under the statue of King Neptune, the mythical ruler of the Isles, to form a new society. Led by the children of the park workers, they choose to remain closed off from the outside world living relatively comfortably inside the self-contained park. But when violence from the infested outside world appears to infiltrate their safe zone, one small group discovers a secret society and a hidden system of underground tunnels, and the stage is set for a war that will determine the future of everyone on the Isles. As alliances are formed and broken, readers will find themselves taking sides in this suspenseful adventure story that addresses the duality of human nature.

Category: Literary Criticism
In this collection of his essays and a sampling of his letters, John Jay Chapman (1862-1933) embraces the world at large. Predicting the depersonalization of twentieth-century society, Chapman argues that a civilization based upon a commerce which is in all its parts corruptly managed will present a social life which is unintelligent and mediocre, made up of people afraid of each other, whose ideas are shopworn, whose manners are self-conscious. Chapman should be studied more carefully and at full length, Edmund Wilson wrote in 1929, but in the meantime, what is most important is to have his essays made accessible.... If his books were reprinted and read, we should recognize that we possess in John Jay Chapman -- by reason of the intensity of the spirit, the brilliance of the literary gift and the continuity of the thought which they embody -- an American classic. Jacques Barzun has observed, We have produced very few great critics, but John Jay Chapman equals any of his foreign contemporaries. An American original, Chapman is a tonic to cynicism and an antidote to a society gone flaccid and complacent.

Despite not being a record it was still a cracking run that established Joshua Patten's and the Neptune's Car reputations as a crack ... The Deal anchorage emptied quickly and the Neptune's Car took her departure off the Isle of Wight.
Author: Paul W Simpson
"Smashing her way through enormous cross seas and howling winds the Neptune's Car began to run her easting down. She passed a battered barque bearing Hamburg markings vainly attempting to make westing against a thundering south-westerly gale." Those with an interest in American maritime history would know of the story of Mary Patten and the clipper ship Neptune's Car. However few would be aware of the cursed nature of the ship. The Patten's fateful voyage was just one in the career of a clipper whose travels spanned the globe. Built at the yard of Page & Allen in Gosport, Virginia in the spring of 1853, the Neptune's Car quickly established her reputation for speed. However murder, mutiny, mayhem, plague, disaster, war, death and financial ruin haunted any who know her. The fickle hand of fate was always at the helm and like the oceans upon which the clipper sailed, she spared none who showed weakness! Volume One of the Virginia Clippers.
