The Adventures of Augie March. Welcome to the massive, anguished, exalted undertaking that is the ALL TIME 100 books list.

The Adventures of Augie March

The parameters: English language novels published anywhere in the world since 1923, the year that TIME Magazine began, which, before you ask, means that Ulysses (1922) doesn’t make the cut. In May, Time.com posted a similar list, of 100 movies picked by our film critics, Richard Corliss and Richard Schickel. This one is chosen by me, Richard Lacayo, and my colleague Lev Grossman, whom we sometimes cite as proof that you don’t need to be named Richard to be hired as a critic at TIME, though apparently it helps.

Just ask our theater critic, Richard Zoglin. For the books project, Grossman and I each began by drawing up inventories of our nominees. Even so, there are many titles we couldn’t fit here that we’re still anguishing over. This project, which got underway in January, was not just a reading effort. There were also first time discoveries. Lists like this one have two purposes. Good Quotations by Famous people. Mythology Guide - A dictionary of Greek and Roman Myths.

Welcome to the Polyglot Project. Because I could not stop for Death. Summary[edit] Text[edit] Because I could not stop for Death— He kindly stopped for me— The Carriage held but just Ourselves— And Immortality.5 We slowly drove—He knew no haste And I had put away My labor and my leisure too, For His Civility— We passed the School, where Children strove 10 At Recess—in the Ring We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain— We passed the Setting Sun— Or rather—He passed Us— The Dews drew quivering and chill— 15 For only Gossamer, my Gown— My Tippet—only Tulle— We paused before a House that seemed A Swelling of the Ground— The Roof was scarcely visible— 20 The Cornice—in the Ground— Since then—'tis Centuries—and yet Feels shorter than the Day I first surmised the Horses' Heads Were toward Eternity— Critique[edit] In 1936 Allen Tate wrote, "[The poem] exemplifies better than anything else [Dickinson] wrote the special quality of her mind ...
