And now Tina had deliberately chosen a reckless, unstable Italian who would, in a short time, scatter to the winds the careful accumulation of years.

"Pietro, the scoundrel, will not have one piastra of my money," cried the old man wrathfully, dropping into Italian as he was speaking about a native of Italy.

"No, I shall see that he doesn't," said the girl. "I shall hold the purse, and he must earn what he spends."

"But if you marry him, you will not have any of it."

"Oh yes, I shall, papa," said Tina confidently; "you have no one else to leave it to. Besides, you are not old, and you will be reconciled to our marriage long before there . . . Read More

مجموعة قصصية تعتمد على فكرة الإنتقام، على تنوعها واختلاف أسبابها فالدافع واحد وهو الثأر، أعتقد أنها كانت مثيرة ومشوقة وقت نشرها عام ١٨٩٦.
كانت مسلية أخذت قصة كل ليلة.

دمتم قراء... ❤❤❤

Robert Barr's "Revenge!" is a collection of short stories with the common theme of revenge. They are Victorian, romantic, occasionally horrifically vindictive, but on the whole psychologically clever. I found them unlike Barr's usual swashbucklers like "The Sword Maker" or "The Best of Good Fellows"

أول قصة معا روبرت بار وقمت بنشرها علي يوتيوب

لم يعجبني علي الاطلاق

اللهم الا اول قصه كانت قصيره ومعبرة وكنت متحمس لباقي المجموعه بسببها
ومنها اقتبس
عندما يفرط الرجل في التفكير في موضوع واحد بعينه،لا يمكن لاحد ان يتخيل الي اي مدي قد يصل اليه .
القصص كلها عن الانتقام وتتلخص جميعا في جرائم قتل بدافع الانتقام
لكنها كانت ممله

The Bromley Gibberts Story

19th Century short stories. Some are memorable. Not certain if the title accurately depicts the content.

Interesting mysteries with romantic & other twists. All chapters are short but complete tales. Some are simply absorbing. Well narrated by Roger Melin (his usual). Nothing offensive - it's a little-known and underrated classic. Recommended.

I have arranged my thoughts on this story into a haiku:

"So alike throughout,
No empathy can be had,
Nor amends be made."
