Prolegomena to the study of Greek religion is written by one of the founders of studying Greek religion and mythology Jane Ellen Harrison. In this research she makes a careful study of the festivities of ancient Greek religion with the goal to find out the roots and fundamentals of rituals and them being present in the classical religion and literature. The preface of this famous book states that J. G. Frazer has made a great contribution to her research and influenced as well the works of many other researches of religion. Our contemporary academics who examines ancient myths or rituals can say the same words about Jane Harrison. Her thoughts set in the Prolegomena have not lost their importance and innovation.
The story of Angela Murray and her sister Virginia follows the life of Angela, a light-skinned African American woman. She tries to enter a world of white people to escape the racism, even by changing her name, until she understands that crossing the racial barrier is not enough for her to realize her full potential. An American editor, poet, essayist of the first half of the 20th century, Jessie Redmond Fauset, focuses on a problem of color and privilege, without setting aside other aspects of the story, such as relationship between the two sisters and gender identity. A thoughtful, elegantly written book.

Excerpt from book: II THE CECILIANS MR. BALFOUR, now floridly benign, a rich oracular voice issuing forth from the obscurer recesses of the Coalition; Lord Robert Cecil, a Hamlet in politics, noble of sentiment and frail of purpose ; Lord Hugh, Mercutio in a cowl, intellectually athletic on a diet of dilemmas; Mr. Ormsby-Gore, still looking like an Eton boy, full of gentleness and good sense; as First, Second, and Third Gentlemen, the trenchant Lord Winterton, Mr. Walter Guinness the frank, and Mr. Edward Wood the earnest, not forgetting Lord Wolmer, though one seldom sees him, and, of course, the Marquess of Salisbury, carrying but hardly wielding the sword of his great name. These are the Cecilians. Besides Mr. Wood, UnderSecretary of the Colonies, only one, Mr. Balfour, sits on the Front Bench, but wherever they sit the Cecilians have their minds at any rate on the Front Bench. They were born to the Ministry, whether they get there or not. For a generation before the war they hadbeen fighting a losing battle. It was they and their kind who had to do most of the fighting with Gladstone, and they survived the frontal attacks of the Liberals only to be outflanked and ousted from power by their ex-Radical janissaries. They still hold out in a corner of the stricken field, strongly entrenched in the old hall garden, but Mr. Balfour, one fears, was the last of the hereditary rulers of the Conservative Party. Ought one to fear, or rather to rejoice, over it? There is room for both sentiments. It would be a grave matter if the great political virtues that one associates with the Cecilians were lost to the party by reason of their faults ; on the other hand, one wonders, after all, whether these virtues will not have a better chance when their owners have to fight for their decisions instead of p...
