The private journal of Henri Frédéric Amiel by Henri Frédéric Amiel( Book )

112 editions published between 1885 and 2006 in English and held by 1,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amiel inicia su Diario íntimo a la edad de 26 años en 1847. Comienza su obra reconociendo su imposibilidad de ser libre, ya que se ve obligado a doblegar su voluntad por sus faltas, en las que también encuentra un cierto placer al afirmar que: “no soy libre, pues no tengo fuerza para ejecutar mi voluntad”, de esta forma se acusa de ser víctima de los caprichos que se presentan a sus ojos, es víctima de vivir respondiendo a la superflua exigencia de cada día. Esta situación lo conduce a cuestionarse sobre su destino mientras reconoce que fue él mismo quien dio fuerza a sus debilidades, pues argumenta que “los males contra los cuales lucho son de vieja data. Es una larga historia que necesitaré escribir algún día. Si el antagonismo es la condición del progreso, ya había nacido para hacer progresos”

Mary Augusta Ward, nee Arnold, (1851-1920), was a British novelist who wrote under her married name as Mrs. Humphry Ward. She began her career writing articles for magazines while working on a book for children that was published in 1881 under the title Milly and Olly. Her novels contained strong religious subject matter relevant to Victorian values she herself practised. Her popularity spread beyond Great Britain to the United States. According to the New York Times, her book Lady Roses Daughter was the bestselling novel in the United States in 1903 as was The Marriage of William Ashe in 1905. Her most popular novel by far was the religious "novel with a purpose" Robert Elsmere, which portrayed the religious crisis of a young pastor and his family. She helped establishing an organization for working and teaching among the poor and was one of the founders of the Womens National Anti-Suffrage League in 1908

John Fenwick is a portrait artist who gets a commission to paint the beautiful Eugenie de Pastourelles in London; his wife Phoebe wants to go with him, but he feels he needs his freedom to paint to his potential. He goes alone and, of course, falls in love with her (her husband has deserted her). Phoebe learns what's going on and, with their daughter, leaves Fenwick and goes to Canada.
