Dave Porter’s Return to School by Edward Stratemeyer, 1907
“Carl was made to bow until his nose touched the floor.”
Edward L. Stratemeyer (October 4, 1862 – May 10, 1930) was an American publisher and writer of children’s fiction. He was one of the most prolific writers in the world, producing in excess of 1,300 books himself, selling in excess of 500 million copies. He also created many well-known fictional book series for juveniles, including The Rover Boys, The Bobbsey Twins, Tom Swift, The Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew series, many of which sold millions of copies and are still in publication today. On Stratemeyer’s legacy, Fortune wrote: “As oil had its Rockefeller, literature had its Stratemeyer.”
O God, in the name of Your Prophet, our great Lawgiver, that we, created and born in Your divine image, may aspire the more perfectly to that spiritual Godliness and bodily beauty which You, in Your infinite mercy, have thought fit to deny to our brutish enemies!
Another part of Beneath the Planet of the Apes that might speak to modern audiences. Zaius uses a rifle (only time he uses a gun!) to smash the busts of humans, whom he considers wholly evil creatures.
