Εκδότης: ANDRE DEUTSCH LTD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5072-0014

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was conceived against the backdrop of rapid change in the scientific world. And the science that inspired it is almost as strange as the novel itself. Shelley grew up surrounded by several of Europe's prominent scientific thinkers and was familiar with experimentation into reanimation of corpses as well as the heated debate over 'the elixir of life'. She was a frequent visitor to St Bart's operating theatre, where spectators witnessed surgery performed without anaesthetic. Her monster was born in an era of bodys...

(P/B) THE COMIC STORIES
Εκδότης: ANDRE DEUTSCH LTD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5072-0010

By 1888, when he was twenty-eight, Anton Chekhov had published a staggering five hundred short works of fiction, about half of them comic stories and farces. Since then, it has been well documented that these early works, dashed off while he was "chasing two hares at once" - his medical career and his modest literary pursuits - were carried out largely to pay the bills, yet the young writer's desire to entertain is evident. With a new introduction and thirteen new stories, this collection reflects a genius for comedy which is as fresh and ...
