The Bride of the Mistletoe

Серия: "-"

1909. Allen was born on a farm near Lexington, Kentucky. As a young boy, he lived the life of the Southern ante-bellum gentry, but by the time he was a teenager the Civil War and Reconstruction had ushered in a new era for both himself and his family. Later, he moved to New York City to pursue writing full time. Many of his works reflect Kentucky themes. The Bride of the Mistletoe is a story about two characters-a middle-aged married couple living in a plain farmhouse; one point on the field of human nature is located; at that point one subject is treated; in the treatment one movement is directed toward one climax; no external event whatsoever is introduced; and the time is about forty hours. Allen's intent was that this would be the first in a series including A Brood of the Eagle and The Christmas Tree: An Interpretation. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing. Книга представляет собой репринтное издание 1909 года (издательство "New York, The Macmillan Company" ). Несмотря на то, что была проведена серьезная работа по восстановлению первоначального качества издания, на некоторых страницах могут обнаружиться небольшие" огрехи" :помарки, кляксы и т. п.

James Lane Allen

James Lane Allen (December 21, 1849February 18, 1925) was an American novelist and short story writer whose work, including the novel "A Kentucky Cardinal", often depicted the culture and dialects of his native Kentucky. His work is characteristic of the late-19th century local color era, when writers sought to capture the vernacular in their fiction. Allen has been described as "Kentucky's first important novelist."

Allen was born near Lexington, Kentucky, and his youth there during the Ante-bellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction periods heavily influenced his writing. He graduated from Transylvania University in 1872, delivering the Salutatorian address in Latin. In 1893 Allen moved to New York City, where he lived until his death. He was a contributor to "Harper's Magazine", "The Atlantic Monthly", and other popular magazines of the time. Allen is buried in Lexington Cemetery.

At the northern edge of Gratz Park in Lexington is the "Fountain of Youth", built in memory of Allen using proceeds willed to the city by him.
