Do you remember the first time hearing a story really scared you? Was it around a campfire? In a friend’s basement? At a sleepover? Do you remember what it felt like to just listen to a single voice weave a narrative of lost souls and unspeakable acts? And realize that you were more affected by the simple act of listening than you’d ever been at the movies? ‘Ghost Story’ seeks to recapture that feeling. Proceed…if you dare.

A Doll's House, written in the original Danish, was first performed at the Royal Theate...

When you dive into Mark Twain’s (Samuel Clemens’) The Innocents Abroad, you have to be ready to learn more about the unadorned, ungilded reality of 19th century “touring” than you might think you want to learn. This is a tough, literary journey. It was tough for Twain and his fellow “pilgrims”, both religious and otherwise. They set out, on a June day in 1867, to visit major tourist sites in Europe and the near east, including Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, “the Holy Land”, and Egypt. What T...

The Social Contract outlines Rousseau’s views on political justice, explaining how a just and legitimate state is to be founded, organized and administered.

Often hailed as a revolutionary document which sparked the French Revolution, The Social Contract serves both to inculcate diss...
