He played with relish, sleeves rolled up, smiling at his work, tinkling from the low ranges to the high with the tricky syncopation of a tap dancer going up a Ziegfeld staircase.”

"Darkling I listen; and, for many a time
I have been half in love with easeful Death,
Call’d him soft names in many a mused rhyme,
To take into the air my quiet breath;"

John Keats, Ode to a Nightingale

"

They say
her face will launch a thousand ships,
They call her darling, sweetheart, baby, love,
The honeyed words drip rotten from their lips,
Her father watches from above,
or so they say.
Born from a golden egg, a little dove
that brought no peace.

I know
He calls me precious, baby, sweetheart, dear,
And ties me to a stone.
His face is lined with age and fear.
My father holds an earthly throne.
I know,
the wind will dance for me alone.
The innocence of Greece.

I hope
they feel it as they lie awake.
The breeze bought with my life.
And savour every breath they take,
the young Prince and his stolen wife.
I hope
the workings of his silver knife
will bring my father glory.

I hope
the men come home from war,
their strong arms freed from oars and whips,
to hold their wives and bleed no more.
I’ll be the wind that speeds their ships.
I know
she’ll be the song on all their lips.
It never was my story.

Duke University Press has around 1,600 of their academic titles available to read online FOR FREE on eDuke Books. You can search by title, author and/or subject! Here is their general list of subjects.

This is a fantastic option for students who need textbooks, research material(s), or individual chapters for various projects but who may not want to cart a ton of books around, need an iPad or browser-friendly format, don’t want to buy books for an intense markup only to get a few bucks back at the end of the semester—or, if you’re not a student but are interested in theory and such (hi). 

eDuke also adds new books sometimes, so keep checking back.

instead of watching the 50 Shades trailer, why not just make awkward eye contact with a total stranger at the grocery store for a solid 2 minutes and 34 seconds? you get the same skin-crawling, uncomfortable feeling but without the shitty writing, terrible acting and massive dose of rape culture
