Excerpt from The Life of St. Teresa of Jesus: Of the Order of Our Lady of Carmel When the publisher entrusted me with the task of editing this volume, one Sheet was already printed and a considerable portion of the book was in type. Under his agreement with the owners of the copyright, he was bound to reproduce the text and notes, etc., originally prepared by Mr. David Lewis without any change, so that my duty was confined to reading the proofs and verifying the quotations. This translation of the Life of St. Teresa is 50 ex cellent, that it could hardly be improved. While faithfully adhering to her wording, the translator has been successful in rendering the lofty teaching in Simple and clear language, an achievement all the more remarkable as in addition to the difficulty arising from the transcendental nature of the subject matter, the involved style, and the total absence of punctuation tend to perplex the reader. N ow and then there might be some difference of Opinion as to how St. Teresa's phrases should be construed, but it is not too much to say that on the whole Mr. Lewis has been more successful than any other translator, whether English or foreign. Only in one case have I found it necessary to make some Slight alteration in the text, and I trust the owners of the Copyright will forgive me for doing so. In Chapter XXV., 4, St. Teresa, Speaking of the difference between the Divine and the imaginary locutions, says that a person com mending a matter to God with great earnestness, may think that he hears whether his prayer will be granted or not y es muy posible, and this is quite possible, but he who has ever heard a Divine locution will see at once that this assurance is something quite different. Mr. Lewis, following the old Spanish editions, trans lated: And it is most impossible, whereas both the autograph and the context demand the wording I have ventured to substitute. When Mr. Lewis undertook the translation of St. Teresa's works. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The Edison Schools

The story of the Edison Schools is a gripping tale of money, kids, and greed. What began in the 1980s as an enterprise to transform public schools quickly became a troubled business battling falling test scores and dismal stock prices. How did the most ambitious for-profit education company in U.S. history lose respect, money, and credibility in such a short time? Revealing how American McEducation went from glory to crisis, The Edison Schools tracks entrepreneur Christopher Whittle's plan to introduce a standardized nationwide curriculum and cut administrative waste. Education specialist Kenneth J. Saltman finds that the critics' predictions came true in Edison schools across the country: Experienced teachers left in droves, students were virtually given answers to standardized tests to drive up scores, and difficult students were "counselored" out.
