Lawrence Lessig - "a brilliant agile mind - absolutely extraordinarily prolific writer and speaker and above all an advocate for all the right things"

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of a thinking power called an idea ... no one possesses the less of it because every other possesses the whole of it ... as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening mine" -- Thomas Jefferson

Hans Brinker and His Silver Skates open wikipedia on the title 
Mary Mapes Dodge open wikipedia on the author (1831 - 1905) 

1865 Best Seller.

The story of Hans and his sister's participation in a skating competition is interwoven with their class reading of _The Hero of Haarlem_ (the boy who saved his country by plugging a dike with his finger). Somehow poplular myth has transferred Han's name to the dike boy.

Historical fiction novel.

The Broad Highway open wikipedia on the title 
Jeffery Farnol open wikipedia on the author (1878 - 1952) 

Publishers Weekly #1 Best Seller for 1911.

Farnol developed the Regency Romance genre. Books in this style invoked the literature and language of the English Regency period, more or less around the time of the Napoleonic wars and the French revolution.

Farnol's first novel, a swashbuckling story of the highroads of Kent in the Regency era, is still regarded as a classic and catapulted him to fame.

Madame Bovary open wikipedia on the title 
Gustave Flaubert open wikipedia on the author (1821 - 1880) 

A seminal work of Realism, and one of the most influential novels ever written.

"What is remarkable in Madame Bovary is that its mediocre beings, with their earthbound ambitions and pedestrian problems, impress us, by virtue of the structure and the writing that create them, as beings who are out of the ordinary within their ordinary manner of being." - Mario Vargas Llosa, in The Perpetual Orgy

The novel focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, as she spirals out of control trying to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life.

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell open wikipedia on the author (1810 - 1865) 
Mary Barton is a millworker's daughter who comes into contact with the son of a wealthy family. She must decide between her devoted lover and the possibilities of joining a middle class family. The book explores the British lower classes' frustration, the false sense of class mobility of the 1800s, at a time when the working class were not able to vote. Much of this novel is autobiographical, incorporating incidents from Gaskell's own life.
