Extract

For my project I chose the book of O. Henry- “Stories”. I didn’t know much about the author. I just knew that he is very famous American writer and that was all. Now I also know that his real name is William Sydney Porter and he was born 11. September of 1862. In 1894 he established magazine “The Rolling Stone”. He was working in a bank in Ohio and got in jail for stealing bank money. But in jail he started to write short stories.
About his stories I can say that all of them were different. Every had its own thought. But there was one conjunctive part- they all had very interesting and unexpected endings. Reading these stories was very interesting to me and it was good entertainment in boring evenings.

„Labi, dārgā,” sacīja Barbara, „Es to nolasīšu, ja tu vēlies!” Viņa atvēra aploksni un ātri izlasīja vēstuli. Tad viņa to pārlasīja un paskatījās uz Nevadu, kura vēl joprojām skatījās uz saviem cimdiem.
Pēkšņi viņa smaidīja. „Nevada,” viņa teica: „Kāpēc tu lūdzi mani izlasīt šo vēstuli? Es esmu pārliecināta, ka tā ir rakstīta tavām acīm, un nevis manējām!”
Nevada uz mirkli aizmirsa par saviem cimdiem.
„Izlasi to skaļi,” viņa teica, „tu jau esi to izlasījusi, tā kā tu vari to izlasīt vēlreiz. Ja misters Varens ir uzrakstījis kaut ko sliktu man, to visiem vajadzētu zināt.”
„Nu,” sacīja Barbara, „lūk kas rakstīts vēstulē: „Dārgā Nevada, atnāc uz manu studiju šonakt pulksten divpadsmitos. Nekavē. Es tevi gaidīšu.” ”
Barbara nosarka un iedeva vēstuli Nevadai.
„Man ļoti žēl, ka to izlasīju,” viņa teica. „Tas nelīdzinās Gilbertam. Tur jābūt kaut kādai kļūdai. Es nesaprotu, kā viņš varēja uzrakstīt šādu vēstuli. Es ceru, ka viņš visu paskaidros. Aizmirsīsim to! Un tagad man jādodas gulēt. Ar labunakti! ”
Nevada skatījās pulkstenī. Tas rādīja ceturksni pāri vienpadsmitiem. Viņa izgāja no istabas un klusi skrēja uz galvenajām durvīm.

Here I wrote a little bit about every story.

The Gift of the Magi
