Antal Szerb,The pendragon legend. Szerb's first novel, gothic and romantic and a thriller. Very funny, but deals with psychological and moral issues while it motors along. "My way is to begin at the beginning" said Lord Byron, who knew his way around polite society."
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more. - Lord Byron | Renaldi made this with Spoken.ly
I STAND TRUE TO MYSELF .. MY FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST & THE HOLY SPIRIT.. & MY LOVE ONES AS THEY HAVE DONE FOR ME AND I HAVE ALWAYS FOR THEM.. I WILL NOT BE MADE TO FEAR AND SILENCED .. I DO NOT AND HAVE NEVER KNOWN THAT TO PROTECT ANYONE!!
