Great Moments in Literature

“Outside the house, a shadow moved, an autumn wind rose up and faded away. But there was something else in the silence that he heard. It was like a breath exhaled upon the window. It was like a faint drift of greenish luminescent smoke, the motion of a single huge October leaf blowing across the lawn and away.”

—Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451, 1953

 

“A MELODY OF ALARM IS WAFTED BY THE WIND THROUGHOUT THE MOST SECRET RECESSES OF THE JUNGLE … RECOGNIZED BY ALL ITS CREATURES … AS THE SONG CEASES … RAUCOUS LAUGHTER TAKES ITS PLACE …”

—Robert Kanigher, RIMA, THE JUNGLE GIRL, Vol. 2, No. 6, “Safari of Death,” 1975
