Celebrated Crimes (FULL Audiobook) by Alexandre Dumas - part 1
Celebrated Crimes Audiobook by Alexandre Dumas Translated by George Burnham Ives free-audio-books.info/biography/celebrated-crimes-audiobook/ Dumas's 'Celebrated Crimes' was not written for children. The novelist has spared no language -- has minced no words -- to describe the violent scenes of a violent time. In some instances facts appear distorted out of their true perspective, and in others the author makes unwarranted charges. The careful, mature reader, for whom the books are intended, will recognize, and allow for, this fact. (from publisher's note) The first volume comprises the annals of the Borgias and the Cenci. The name of the noted and notorious Florentine family has become a synonym for intrigue and violence, and yet the Borgias have not been without stanch defenders in history. Another famous Italian story is that of the Cenci. The beautiful Beatrice Cenci -- celebrated in the painting of Guido, the sixteenth century romance of Guerrazi, and the poetic tragedy of Shelley, not to mention numerous succeeding works inspired by her hapless fate -- will always remain a shadowy figure and one of infinite pathos.

I have? never? seen him, nor anything that resembles him, or which can make me believe that he exists. I wish to be Providence myself, for I feel that the most beautiful, noblest, most sublime? thing in the world, is to recompense and punish," Satan bowed his head and groaned.

'You mistake,' he said;? 'Providence does exist, only you you have never seen him, because the? child of God is as invisible as the parent. You have seen nothing that resembles him, because? he works by secret springs and moves by hidden ways.

Walter Lippmann (Pioneer? of Propaganda) (1922)

This Chevalier D'Herblay is a kind of Spanish spy, is he not?" "More than that." "A secret ambassador?" "Higher still." "Stop-King Philip III of Spain is devout. He? is, perhaps, the confessor of Philip III. "He must, then, be? the general of the Jesuits?" "I believe you have guessed at last," replied the duchess. "Ah, then, madame, this man will ruin us all if we do not ruin him; and we must make haste to do it, too." "If you knew," she said "how many times Aramis has gotten out of prison!"
