Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free.This is an OCR edition with typos.Excerpt from book:seasons past, has conducted theatres throughout the northern tier of cities, and he produced "St Elmo" in Windsor, Ont., to secure the British copyrights, on the afternoon of the very evening that Mr. Holcomb's first performance opened at Richmond, Va."St. Elmo " marks Mr. Glaser's debut as a producing manager, and he is not only presenting the play as a feature of his own repertory, but has organized several touring companies to give the duplicate productions all over the country. Mr. Glaser appeared in the title role at the Academy of Music, in New York, supported by Miss Fay Courtenay, the original "Edna Earle," and a specially selected cast, recruited from all the Glaser organizations.Every production sent out under the direction of Mr. Glaser has been painted from the original models, while the furniture and costuming of the quaint period "Befo1 the wah" are exactly the same in all cases. The companies, too, have been selected with a view to giving the best possible ensemble performance, with no star save "St. Elmo." In reality it is a "life-sized illustrated edition " of the story, condensed and adapted for dramatic effect; and all reports of the play proclaim it the strongest spiritual drama since the days of " The Christian," "Ben Hur," or "The Sign of the Cross."VAUGHAN GLASER January 3, 1910.chapter{Section 4ST. ELMO.CHAPTER L"HE stood and measured the earth: and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow."These words of the prophet upon Shigionoth were sung by a sweet, happy, childish voice, and to a strange, wild, anomalous tune—solemn as the Hebrew chant of Deborah, and fully as triumphant.A slender girl of twelve years' growth steadied a pail of water on her head, with both dimpled arms thrown up, in ancient ... ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I found St. Elmo at my grandmothers house last year and decided to read it since I live in Columbus, GA around the area where it is set. I couldn't put it down. I've just finished reading it a second time and it is more wonderful the second time around.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Book!
Deep reading with good Christian standards.I loved all the references and quotes from famous authors and philosophers.It's all about a real-life hero who has real-life problems to conquer. Definately recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic Victorian Novel
This classic Victorian novel popular in its time is a fine example of descriptive writing at its best.It will entertain as well as educate themost prolific of readers with references to world-wide geographiclocations, foreign phraseology, and descriptive paragraphs that arerefreshing different to 21st century reading.A tale of romance andintrigue woven with Christian morality will delight the reader intoimagining themselves present in an era now passed. I can see why it was afavorite of my grandmother and will remain a favorite with me.

5-0 out of 5 stars St. Elmo's rise to a state of enlightenment
Although the book chronicles the life of Edna Earl from childhood into adult life, it was titled, 'St. Elmo.' Edna Earl maintained a very highsense of morality, and strongly valued her belief system and her integrity.It was this sense of morality, expressed through her confident personality,that resulted in the eventual 'spiritual reawakening' of St. Elmo Murray.St. Elmo was truly 'born again' as a man and as a spiritual being. Histurnaround from an angry, misanthropic individual into an enlightenedindividual was remarkable. It was Edna Earl who triggered this awakening inhim. Therefore, naming the book 'St. Elmo' was a testament his receiving ofgrace. Agusta Jane Evans was an outstanding writer, as good as any whosebooks I have ever read.

5-0 out of 5 stars A magnificent book
I have read this book threetimes.The first was when I was a teenager no more than l4 years.I read it again soon after I was married at twehty three. The first two times were borrowed books-I then found it stillin print so I finally bought my own copy.I treasure it and probably willread it again for the fourth time.It is the greatest book I have everowned not counting the Bible. ...

Product Description
Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free.This is an OCR edition with typos.Excerpt from book:" Oh, Miss White ! she is not able to carry a heavy child always in her arms," expostulated Mrs. Williams." Yes she is. I will venture to say she looks all the better for it at the month's end."The last sentence, fraught with interest to herself, fell upon Beulah's ear, as she passed through the hall, and an unerring intuition told her " you are the one." She put her hands over her ears to shut out Miss Dorothea's sharp tones, and hurried away, with a dim foreboding of coming evil, which pressed heavily upon her young heart.CHAPTER II.The following day, in obedience to the proclamation of the mayor of the city, was celebrated as a season of special thanksgiving, and the inmates of the asylum were taken to church to morning service. After an early dinner, the matron gave them permission to amuse themselves the remainder of the day as their various inclinations prompted. There was an immediate dispersion of the assemblage, and only Beulah lingered beside the matron's chair."Mrs. Williams, may I take Lilly with me, and go out into the woods at the back of the Asylum ?"" I want you at home this evening, but I dislike very much to refuse yon."" Oh! never mind, if you wish me to do anything," answered the girl cheerfully.Tears rolled over the matron's face, and hastily averting herhead, she wiped them away with the corner of her apron." Can I do anything to help yon ? What is the matter ?"" Never mind, Beulah; do you get your bonnet and go to theedge of the woods—not too far, remember; and if I must have you, why I will send for yon."" I would rather not go if it will be any trouble.""No, dear, it's no trouble; I want you to go," answered the matron, turning hastily away. Beulah felt very strongly inclined to follow, and inquire what was... ... Read more

This novel is about Beulah, a woman who despite her chances to have a "perfect" life refuses to submit to convention.Much of the book focuses on philosophy as a justification for her position and at othertimes a condemnation of her actions.A wonderful read for the deepthinker.Definitely not beach reading.... ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Augusta Jane Evans Wilson (1835–1909) was one of nineteenth-century America's most popular novelists and outspoken supporters of the Confederacy. Her nine novels include the recently reissued Beulah, the stridently pro-Confederate Macaria, and the extremely successful St. Elmo, which had sales rivaling those of Uncle Tom's Cabin and Ben-Hur. In addition to writing best-selling books, Wilson was a powerful letter-writer whose correspondents included prominent Confederate leaders. Wilson's epistles, 112 of which are gathered in this volume, reveal the depth of her ambitions for herself and the Confederacy.

Wilson worked hard to place herself at the center of action during the Civil War and after the surrender assiduously maintained her correspondence with prominent people of her day. In addition to writing Confederate propaganda, her wartime activities included an extended correspondence with General P. G. T. Beauregard and Confederate congressman Jabez L. M. Curry. In her letters Wilson reviews battle plans and military policy, offers political advice, and illumines the hardships suffered by southerners. Her correspondence portrays her as an assertive, well-educated woman who addressed powerful men on equal terms and only occasionally lapsed into traditional feminine deference. Of equal interest, the volume includes Wilson's writings to friends, publishers, fans, and family members. Wilson's working correspondence with her editors and myriad admirers captures her views on the purposes of fiction, the trials of publishing during the war, and the difficulties of combining career and family. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent insight into a forgotten author's history!
This collection of letter (though by no means complete) is amazing. Many people have forgotten the once incredibly famous nineteenth-century author, Augusta Evans Wilson. She was born in Georgia but spent most of her life in Mobile, Alabama. She became famous with her second novel, Beulah. (Her best-loved novel was probably St. Elmo.) Though the prose in her novels has been criticized for being over-the-top and sentimental, these letters allow readers to see a different side of the author. Also, the collection would be wonderful for those studying women during the Civil War or nineteenth-century. Augusta Evans Wilson never shies from providing commentary on all kinds of subjects and this collection of letters is a great read even if you have never come across any of her novels. Enjoy! ...
