The satiric and fantastic romance is set in an imaginary semi-­tropical land in Antarctica inhabited by prehistoric monsters and a cult of death-­worshipers called the Kosekin.
The main story of the novel is the narrative of the adventures of Adam More, a British sailor shipwrecked on a homeward voyage from Tasmania. After passing through a subterranean tunnel of volcanic origin, he finds himself in a "lost world" of prehistoric animals, plants and people sustained by volcanic heat despite the long Antarctic night.

The eagerness with which the first volume of Emily Dickinson's poems has been read shows very clearly that all our alleged modern artificiality does not prevent a prompt appreciation of the qualities of directness and simplicity in approaching the greatest themes, — life and love and death.

But in their own opinion they were just as great as if they had possessed these gracious marks of medieval distinction. Their country was comparatively new, but their fathers came mostly from Virginia and their whisky came wholly from Kentucky. Their cotton brought a high price in the Liverpool market, their daughters were celebrated for beauty, and their sons could hold their own with the poker players that traveled up and down the Mississippi River. The slave trade had been abolished, and, therefore, what remained of slavery was right; and in proof of it the pulpit contributed its argument. Negro preachers with wives scattered . . .

Изучение лексических средств, связанных с пониманием чужих высказываний и созданием собственных речевых произведений, способствует эффективности общения между коммуникантами. Лексический материал пособия формирует умение видеть в языках универсальное и специфическое, сравнивать лексические возможности языков по разным параметрам, выделять национально-­культурный компонент в семантическом пространстве языка.
