We apologize for this inconvenience. Your IP address has been automatically blocked from accessing the Project Gutenberg website, www. This is because the geoIP database shows your address is in the country of Germany. Blocked at germany. A Court in Germany ordered that access to certain items in the Project Gutenberg collection are blocked from Germany. Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply.
For more information about the German court case, and the reason for blocking all of Germany rather than single items, visit PGLAF's information page about the German lawsuit. All IP addresses in Germany are blocked.
This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. Project Gutenberg updates its listing of IP addresses approximately monthly. Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor. If your IP address is shown by Maxmind to be outside of Germany and you were momentarily blocked, another issue is that some Web browsers erroneously cache the block.
Trying a different Web browser might help. Or, clearing the history of your visits to the site. Please email the diagnostic information above to help pglaf. The software we use sometimes flags "false positives" -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred. Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or other site features should almost never be blocked.
Review: Antic Hay by Aldous Huxley
Was there any chance of their being the same? Huxley may have been thinking of the Eiffel Tower restaurant in Percy Street, which was patronised by Imagist poets and boasted a private Vorticist dining room and a menu illustrated by Wyndham Lewis. Myra is an archetype of the despairing, pleasure-seeking, sexually promiscuous post-war flapper. She has already left Gumbril and Lypiatt bewitched and broken-hearted, and takes a shine to their dinner guest Shearwater, a physiologist who is an expert on the function of the kidneys but a fool in matters of the heart. And once for two or three days, out of pity, out of affection, out of a mere desire, perhaps, to lay the tiresome ghost, she had given him what his mournful silence implored —- only to take it back, almost as soon as accorded. She had tried to recapture, to re-evoke, to revivify. And there had never been anything, really, but a disgust.

He published over 50 books, novels, travel books, histories, poems, plays, screenplays, and essays on philosophy, arts, sociology, religion, and morals. His grandfather. From to he attended Balliol College, Oxford, where he excelled academically and edited literary journals. Huxley was considered a prodigy, being exceptionally intelligent and creative. This is where the reader is set off on a journey to the midst and minds of intellectuals and members of the London cultural elite in turbulent times in the after math of World War I. The story is filled with diverse characters, one more bohemian, absurd or artsy than the other, but they only represent ideas, so the personages behind the ideas come secondary. He grips the reader in the heart but the novel pleases the brain the most.
