Forsyth Mark The Elements of Eloquence. How to Turn the Perfect English Phrase


Mark Forsyth presents the secret of writing unforgettable phrases, uncovering the techniques that have made immortal such lines as `To be or not to be' and `Bond. James Bond.' In his inimitably entertaining and witty style, he takes apart famous quotations and shows how you too can write like Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde or John Lennon. Crammed with tricks to make the most humdrum sentiments seem poetic or wise, The Elements of Eloquence reveals how writers through the ages have turned humble words into literary gold - and how you can do the same. `An informative but highly entertaining journey through the figures of rhetoric ... Mark Forsyth wears his considerable knowledge lightly. He also writes beautifully.' David Marsh, Guardian

George Alexander Forsyth Thrilling Days in Army Life. Experiences of the B Island Battle 1868, Apache Campaign 1882, and American Civil War


A highly regarded memoir of the Indian and Civil WarsThe author of this book, George A. (Sandy) Forsyth was a career soldier who served with distinction in the American Civil War and subsequently upon the western frontier against the Plains Indian tribes as they fought a losing battle to stem the inexorable advance of 'Manifest Destiny'-essentially 'the survival of the fittest'-'the law' as Forsyth writes, 'that has obtained since the dawn of creation.' Forsyth's career was varied and full of incident, though in his biography he has elected to concentrate on just four outstanding episodes in which he took part. The first, and certainly the one for which has remained famous to this day concerns the Battle of Beecher's Island. In 1868 in command of just 50 'scouts' Forsyth pursued a thousand Indian warriors of the Northern Cheyenne and other tribes under the war chief, Roman Nose, and found himself besieged on a small island in a creek of the Republican River. This incredible story of endurance has became one of the iconic episodes of the Plains Indian Wars. Here Forsyth tells his experiences in his own words before recounting a lesser known incident from his time on the Mexican border in conflict with and pursuit of Chiricahua Apaches. The final two accounts concern Forsyth's experiences as an aide to Sheridan during the Civil War, first during the Shenandoah campaign and finally at Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court Hou...

James Perrin Warren Culture of Eloquence. Oratory and Reform in Antebellum America


Americans of the early Republic valued the art of eloquence, upholding the ideal that an impassioned, intelligent, and moral speaker will provide essential truths to a democratic audience. Drawing on nonfiction prose of the 1830s-1850s--especially orations, lectures, and addresses--James Perrin Warren sketches a cultural history of the reforming power of language.Antebellum America truly defined itself as a culture of eloquence. This disposition could be seen in the creation of new cultural spaces, such as the lyceum and popular lecture system, for speakers who were then measured against the ideals of eloquence held by their listeners. Defining eloquence as "powerful, moving speech," Warren engages a host of writers/orators to develop his argument, beginning with Ralph Waldo Emerson's philosophy of language in the 1830s and expanding his discussion to include the theories and practices of Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, Elizabeth Peabody, Frederick Douglass, William Gilmore Simms, and Walt Whitman. From this list he outlines practices that crossed the boundaries of gender, race, and class, ultimately showing that diverse sectors of society valued the word as a means toward reform.Powerful words move people to action, and Warren clearly delineates the authority accorded oratory in antebellum America. This book will appeal to a wide audience, including those interested in antebellum American culture, American literature and cultural history, literary criticism...

This book contains two of the cases of DCI Ian Forsyth. In the first, a number of men are tortured and killed, but there seems, at first, no connection between them. With Forsyth on holiday, DS Alistair MacRae and his team establish the connection and find the two people who complete the circle. When one of these two is killed, MacRae puts forward a solution to the mystery. But it is left to Forsyth to deduce who is really responsible when he gets back from holiday.In the second case, the son of wealthy, professional parents is abducted. When the paying of the ransom goes wrong, the kidnapper states that he will kill the child because the police have been brought in. leading MacRae to believe that the child may have been taken by the kidnapper to revenge himself on one of the parents. But Forsyth is able to deduce the real reason for the abduction and to return the child to his anxious mother.

P. Forsyth The Soul of Prayer


"Here is a no-nonsense theologian who goes for the jugular. In Forsyth's company we are aware of both the glory and the gravity of what we are doing when we go to our knees in prayer."-Eugene H. PetersonP. T. Forsyth is sometimes described as an English pre-cursor to Karl Barth. He was born in 1848 to a Scottish family of humble origins and later in life attended Aberdeen University, where he graduated with first-class honours in classical literature in 1869. In 1876 he was ordained and called to minister in Shipley, Yorkshire. In his early ministry in the Congregational Church, Forsyth fought orthodoxy and sought for the right to rethink Christian theology and pursue liberal thought. In 1878, however, Forsyth experienced a conversion from, in his own words, "being a Christian to being a believer, from a lover of love to an object of grace." A profound awareness of pastoral responsibility was awakened which radically altered the the course of his ministry. His conversion thrust him from the leadership of liberalism to a recovery of the theology of grace. Quickly, he became one of the better-known figures in British Nonconformity. In 1894, he received a call to Emmanuel College in Cambridge, where he preached his famous sermon, "Holy Father" in 1896. In 1901, he accepted a position as principal of Hackney Theological College, London where he remained until he died in 1921. Over his lifetime Forsyth published 25 books and more than 260 articles. He i...

Ian Gouge An Infinity of Mirrors


Given his profession as a Historian, it was inevitable that Mark would find himself one day writing the biography of his late father, the acclaimed author Charles Packard. As his biographer, Mark is blessed with a wealth of material: first-hand experience, his father’s own work, the testimonies of his Aunt, and Charles’ friends, colleagues - and enemies.Yet what he uncovers is unexpected, revealing elements of his father’s life that resonate with his own. The parallels he reveals begin to intrude in a very tangible way on Mark’s interpretation of own his life, his history becoming more closely aligned to that of his father.Instead of being the closing of a chapter, a sealing up of the past, the biography proves to be something far darker, unleashing personal daemons that Mark could never have anticipated.
