Riassunto: Two-storied, with double porticos upon three sides and great white pillars about which a mans arms would scarcely go, it was hidden in a grove of pecans and magnolias which had the depth and stillness of cathedral archways. The ground beneath was soft and glossy, and one wondered if the deep, rich green had ever been trod by a foot. It wasM arch, andS outhern springtime. The great magnolias, some of them a hundred feet high, were in the full tide of their splendor, their crisp, polished leaves scarcely visible for the snow-white flowers which covered them. Here and there about the lawn were rose trees of twice a mans height, flashing like beacons with their weight of cloth-of-gold roses a span across, crimson and orange, and with petals soft and heavy as velvet. A bout the lawn were scattered banana and fig trees, pomegranates, china trees, and huge flaming scarlet lobelias. Tall hedges of jasmine and sweetbrier ran around the house and along the sides of the lawn, while beyond them on one side stretched a grove of orange trees in full blossom, a sea of flowers which loaded the breeze with sweetness and brought a drunkenness to every sense. Upon the other side was the flower garden, whose riot of color and perfume had gathered the bees and humming-birds from miles around, filling the air with a sound as of distant machinery. It was high noon, and the sultry air was heavy with sunlight.

Descrizione libro Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Upton Sinclair is one of the most well known authors of the twentieth century. His most famous novel is of course The Jungle, a work of fiction that brought conditions in the United States meat packing industry to the forefront of public thought. He was also the author of dozens of books, both fiction and non-fiction, and is considered a great American writer. His novel Manassas: A Novel of the War was later republished under the name Theirs Be the Guilt. Manassas is the story of the United States in the period leading up to the Civil War. The book is an account of life in the South, where slave ownership was common and clashes between landowners and their slaves were frequent and often brutal. The protagonist of the story is a young Southerner who leaves the South and joins the abolitionist movement in the North. It is a story of families torn apart and the tremendous damages done by slavery. The book also serves as an excellent introduction to American politics at the time, and was written at a period when the wounds of the Civil War were still fresh for many Americans. Sinclair is an author who deserves the credit he has been afforded, and Manassas sees him in excellent form. With clever, beautiful, prose, Sinclair weaves a story that is both gripping and heartbreaking. This is a great American novel written by a true master of his craft.
