The Angel in the House

Coventry Kersey Dighton Patmore was a 19th century poet and critic. He worked as assistant librarian at the British museum and was instrumental in starting up a volunteer movement. In 1854 Angel in the House was published. The poem is an account of his wife Emily, whom Patmore believed to be the perfect Victorian wife. "She was intensely sympathetic. She was immensely charming. She was utterly unselfish. She excelled in the difficult arts of family life. She sacrificed daily. If there was a chicken, she took the leg; if there was a draught she sat in it ... Above all, she was pure." The phrase Angel in the House came to mean any Victorian woman who was a devoted wife and mother, subservient to her husband, and kind to anyone she met.

The Marriages (Webster’s French Thesaurus Edition)

Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-French thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of The Marriages by Henry James was edited for three audiences. The first includes French-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program.

The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in French in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's French Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in French or English.TOEFL, TOEIC, AP and Advanced Placement are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.
