Гарт Фрэнсис Брет (Harte Francis Bret) - The Luck of Roaring Camp Mp3 + text Гарт, Фрэнсис Брет (Брет Гарт) [1836—1902] - американский писатель. Stories like “The Luck of Roaring Camp,” “The Outcasts of Poker Flat” and “The Idyl of Red Gulch” have a serious interest as pictures of a phase of American life which already seems far away; but their attractiveness is still more due to the skill they display in the sketching of types, to the pathos which they reveal in the most unlikely characters, and to the restraint and concentration with which the stories are told. (Bartleby. Com). . "These two stories deployed a cunning narrative strategy which insured their success with genteel readers. The tales argue that society's outcasts- whether gamblers, gold-seekers, prostitutes, or unemployed cowboys-all have hearts of gold" (DLB 74). The western Four of the Apocalypse is based on The Outcasts of Poker Flat and The Luck of Roaring Camp.
