Ali Pacha

Ali Pacha by Alexandre Dumas

Ali Pacha by Alexandre Dumas

Ali Tepeleni, Pacha of Janina, rose to power during the early 1800s in one of the Ottoman Empire’s most unruly territories (Albania). His ferocious imposition of will was limitless, earning him the sobriquet of “the Lion of Janina.” As the mauling and murder of innocents sustains the lion, so did it sustain Ali Pacha’s rule. Thus, the range of celebrated crimes that Dumas describes in this essay are as vast as Ali Pacha’s ambition – an ambition rooted in his mother’s callous advice that “success justified everything, and everything is permissible to him who has the power to do it.

The Clansman

The Clansman by Thomas Dixon

The Clansman by Thomas Dixon

The second book in a trilogy of the Reconstruction era – The Leopard’s Spots (1902), The Clansman (1905), and The Traitor (1907), this novel was the basis for the 1915 silent movie classic, “The Birth Of A Nation”. Within a fictional story, it records Dixon’s understanding of the origins of the first Ku Klux Klan (his uncle was a Grand Titan during Dixon’s childhood), recounting why white southerners’ began staging vigilante responses to the savage personal insults, political injustices and social cruelties heaped upon them during Reconstruction. Still considered dangerous “propaganda” encouraging segregation, white unity, and white supremacy, this incendiary novel nevertheless sheds light on the social conditions and the mindset of many Americans (North and South) during that period, and its influence on subsequent southern authors from Margaret Mitchell (Gone With The Wind) to Faulkner, Allen Tate, Robert Penn, and others, was significant.
