The story opens some time after the end of the American Civil War. The Gun Club, a society based in Baltimore and dedicated to the design of weapons of all kinds (especially cannons), comes together when Impey Barbicane, its president, calls them to support his latest idea. He's done some calculations, and believes that they could construct a cannon capable of shooting a projectile to the moon. After receiving the support of his companions, another meeting is held to decide the place from which the projectile will be fired, the dimensions and materials of both the cannon and the projectile, and which kind of powder they are to use. Après la fin de la guerre de Sécession, le Gun Club de Baltimore, club d'artilleurs, végète par manque d'activité. Son président, Impey Barbicane, propose très sérieusement d'envoyer un boulet de canon sur la Lune. Après plusieurs réunions, le Gun Club s'organise et lance une collecte de fonds en direction de toute la planète. Après avoir récolté l’argent nécessaire, le projet prend forme sous la forme d'un gigantesque canon d'une conception inspirée des Columbiad américains.

This edition contains the English translation and the original text in French. "From the Earth to the Moon" (French: "De la terre à la lune") is an 1865 novel by Jules Verne. It tells the story of the Baltimore Gun Club, a post-American Civil War society of weapons aficionados, and their attempts to build an enormous sky-facing Columbiad space gun and launch three people — the Gun Club's president, his Philadelphian armor-making rival, and a French poet — in a projectile with the goal of a moon landing. The story is also notable in that Verne attempted to do some rough calculations as to the requirements for the cannon and, considering the comparative lack of any data on the subject at the time, some of his figures are surprisingly close to reality. However, his scenario turned out to be impractical for safe manned space travel since a much longer muzzle would have been required to reach escape velocity while limiting acceleration to survivable limits for the passengers. The character of Michel Ardan, the French poet in the novel, was inspired by the real-life photographer Félix Nadar. "De la Terre à la Lune, trajet direct en 97 heures 20 minutes" est un roman d'anticipation de Jules Verne, paru en 1865.

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000; background-color: #ffffff} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} Milton's story has two narrative arcs, one about Satan (Lucifer) and the other following Adam and Eve. It begins after Satan and the other rebel angels have been defeated and banished to Hell, or, as it is also called in the poem, Tartarus. In Pandæmonium, the capital city of Hell, Satan employs his rhetorical skill to organize his followers; he is aided by Mammon and Beelzebub. Belial and Moloch are also present. At the end of the debate, Satan volunteers to corrupt the newly created Earth and God's new and most favoured creation, Mankind. He braves the dangers of the Abyss alone in a manner reminiscent of Odysseus or Aeneas. After an arduous traversal of the Chaos outside Hell, he enters God's new material World, and later the Garden of Eden. Lucifer, l’ange déchu, vient d’être vaincu par les armées divines. Avec son armée, il s’apprête à relancer une attaque contre le Ciel lorsqu’il entend parler d’une prophétie : une nouvelle espèce de créatures doit être formée par le Ciel. Il décide alors de partir seul en expédition. Sorti de l’enfer, il s’aventure dans le paradis, et trouve le nouveau monde. Après avoir facilement dupé l'ange Uriel en changeant d’apparence, il s’introduit dans le paradis et découvre Adam et Ève. Dieu l’apprend, mais décide de ne rien faire : il a créé l’homme libre, et lui accordera sa grâce quoi qu’il arrive… si toutefois il respecte la justice divine. Son Fils, trouvant le jugement sévère, supplie son Père de prendre sur lui les péchés des hommes, ce à quoi celui-ci consent.

In 1801, Lockwood, a wealthy young man from the South of England who is seeking peace and recuperation, rents Thrushcross Grange in Yorkshire. He visits his landlord, Heathcliff, who lives in a remote moorland farmhouse, Wuthering Heights. There Lockwood finds an odd assemblage: Heathcliff who seems to be a gentleman, but his manners are uncouth; the reserved mistress of the house who is in her mid-teens; and a young man who seems to be a member of the family, yet dresses and speaks as if he is a servant. Snowed in, Lockwood is grudgingly allowed to stay and is shown to a bedchamber where he notices books and graffiti left by a former inhabitant named Catherine. He falls asleep and has a nightmare in which he sees the ghostly Catherine trying to enter through the window. He cries out in fear, rousing Heathcliff, who rushes into the room. Lockwood is convinced that what he saw was real. Heathcliff, believing Lockwood to be right, examines the window and opens it, hoping to allow Catherine's spirit to enter. When nothing happens, Heathcliff shows Lockwood to his own bedroom and returns to keep watch at the window. Mr Earnshaw, père de famille, a deux enfants: un fils, Hindley, et une fille, Catherine. Parti en voyage à Liverpool pendant plusieurs semaines, le vieil Earnshaw revient avec sous son manteau un petit bohémien errant d'environ 6 ans, Heathcliff. Hindley et lui entrent rapidement en conflit et, à la mort du père, Hindley devient le maître de maison. Heathcliff est alors traité plus durement que jamais. La petite Catherine et lui se découvrent de tendres sentiments qui n'auront de cesse de s'approfondir au fil de leur adolescence. Rêvant tous deux d'un avenir plus glorieux que leurs vies respectives, les deux enfants s’échappent fréquemment dans la lande pour aspirer à de jours meilleurs.
