Сharles M. Skinner: The Revenge Of Josiah Breeze

Language:
English
Genres:
Fiction & Literature

Charles Montgomery Skinner (August 4, 1844 - June 30, 1928) was an American writer who published myths and legends collection books. His dream was to make American folklore heritage more glorious. Skinner’s writings were wide ranging. His career in literature and journalism included editorship of the Brooklyn Eagle. His study of the paper’s famed Walt Whitman appeared in the Atlantic Monthly.  He also commented on turn-of-the-century America’s turbulent economy in Workers and the Trusts and American Communes.

This short piece of prose represents a bright example of Skinner's writing style — laconic and clear. This work is pirced by the spririt of American Democracy as it tells us of foregiveness. The sailors of royal fleet burn houses of the colonist and rape their women. They are hated here. But when their lives are at peril — a young man Josiah Breeze finds a place for forgiveness in his heart.
