(H/B) A PASSAGE TO INDIA
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0046

Britain's three-hundred-year relationship with the Indian subcontinent produced much fiction of interest but only one indisputable masterpiece: E. M. Forster's A Passage to India, published in 1924, at the height of the Indian independence movement. Centering on an ambiguous incident between a young Englishwoman of uncertain stability and an Indian doctor eager to know his conquerors better, Forster's book explores, with unexampled profundity, both the historical chasm between races and the eternal one between individuals struggling to eas...

(H/B) DAVID COPPERFIELD
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0029

Charles Dickens's most celebrated novel and the author's own favorite, David Copperfield is the classic account of a boy growing up in a world that is by turns magical, fearful, and grimly realistic. In a book that is part fairy tale and part thinly veiled autobiography, Dickens transmutes his life experience into a brilliant series of comic and sentimental adventures in the spirit of the great eighteenth-century novelists he so much admired. Few readers can fail to be touched by David's fate, and fewer still to be delighted by his story. ...

(H/B) ANIMAL FARM
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0094

Animal Farm is the most famous by far of all twentieth-century political allegories. Its account of a group of barnyard animals who revolt against their vicious human master, only to submit to a tyranny erected by their own kind, can fairly be said to have become a universal drama. Orwell is one of the very few modern satirists comparable to Jonathan Swift in power, artistry, and moral authority; in animal farm his spare prose and the logic of his dark comedy brilliantly highlight his stark message. Taking as his starting point the betray...

(H/B) EMMA
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0150

The most perfect of Jane Austen's perfect novels begins with twenty-one-year-old Emma Woodhouse comfortably dominating the social order in the village of Highbury, convinced that she has both the understanding and the right to manage other people's lives - for their own good, of course. Her well-meant interfering centers on the aloof Jane Fairfax, the dangerously attractive Frank Churchill, the foolish if appealing Harriet Smith, and the ambitious young vicar Mr. Elton - and ends with her complacency shattered, her mind awakened to some of...

(H/B) DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (VOLUMES 4-6)
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0144

Volumes 4-6 complete the set which is now available for the first time in many years. This year is the bicentenary of Gibbon's death, which has been widely noticed in the press, but even after two hundred years his book is still an authoritative work on Roman history. What is more, it remains wonderfully readable: witty, elegant and intriguing, full of the author's own personality. The six-volume Everyman edition - the only complete one now available-prints the entire text of the book with all Gibbon's own notes, later editorial commentari...

(H/B) MOBY DICK
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0156

(...) In the fervor of his desire to engage just such issues as were finally to elevate the narrative of Moby-Dick into cosmic drama, however, Melville was unfair to the preceding novels when he dismissed them us jobs since, in fact, they are novels of power that spoke tellingly to readers in their day and speak even more powerfully today to readers with a modern perception of psychological reality. And especially unfair because in them he matured the craftsmanship that opened the way to the literary form he failed to find in Mardi when he...

(H/B) NICHOLAS NICKLEBY
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0035

Dicken's third novel, published in 1839, is a brilliant and vivid melodrama of honest youth triumphing over vice and injustice. Bursting with energy and populated by a whole world of inimitable and memorable characters - including especially the theatrical troupe with whom Nicholas performs - the book is both a griping story and a series of magnificent scenes. It is also indignant protest against cruelty and oppression, most memorably encapsulated in Dickens's powerful portrayal of Mr Squeers and his wicked boarding school - a passage whic...

(H/B) FRANKENSTEIN
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0109

No-one in the grip of Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN, with its mythic-minded hero and its highly sympathetic monster who reads Goethe and longs to be at peace with himself, can fail to notice how much more excellent the original is than all the adaptations, imitations and outright plagiarisms which have followed in its ample wake. In her first novel, written at the instigation of Lord Byron and published in 1818, Mary Shelley produced English Romanticism's finest prose fiction. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) ULYSSES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0069

The most famous day in literature is June 16, 1904, when a certain Mr. Leopold Bloom of Dublin eats a kidney for breakfast, attends a funeral, admires a girl on the beach, contemplates his wife’s imminent adultery, and, late at night, befriends a drunken young poet in the city’s red-light district. An earthy story, a virtuoso technical display, and a literary revolution all rolled into one, James Joyce’s Ulysses is a touchstone of our modernity and one of the towering achievements of the human mind.

(H/B) ESSAYS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0095

A generous and varied selection - the only hardcover edition available - of the literary and political writings of one of the greatest essayists of the twentieth century. Although best known as the author of Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-four, George Orwell left an even more lastingly significant achievement in his voluminous essays, which dealt with all the great social, political, and literary questions of the day and exemplified an incisive prose style that is still universally admired. Included among the more than 240 essays in this ...

(H/B) DEAD SOULS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0048

Since its publication in 1842, Dead Souls has been celebrated as a supremely realistic portrait of provincial Russian life and as a splendidly exaggerated tale; as a paean to the Russian spirit and as a remorseless satire of imperial Russian venality, vulgarity, and pomp. As Gogol's wily antihero, Chichikov, combs the back country wheeling and dealing for "dead souls"--deceased serfs who still represent money to anyone sharp enough to trade in them--we are introduced to a Dickensian cast of peasants, landowners, and conniving petty officia...

(H/B) THE CASTLE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0154

Arriving in a village to take up the position of land surveyor for the mysterious lord of a castle, the character known as K. finds himself in a bitter and baffling struggle to contact his new employer and go about his duties. As the villagers and the Castle officials block his efforts at every turn, K.'s consuming quest - quite possibly a self-imposed one - to penetrate the inaccessible heart of the Castle and take its measure is repeatedly frustrated. Kafka once suggested that the would-be surveyor in The Castle is driven by a wish "to g...

(H/B) WORDSWORTH: SELECTED POEMS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0122

"Surprised by joy, impatient as the wind, I turned to share the transport - oh! with whom But thee, long buried in the silent tomb, That spot which no vicissitude can find? Love, faithful love, recalled thee to my mind, But how could I forget thee? Through what power, Even for the least division of an hour, Have I been so beguiled as to be blind To my most grievous loss? That thought's return Was the worst pang that sorrow ever bore, Save one - one only - when I stood forlorn, Knowing my heart's best treasure was no more: That ...

The Leopard was written in a few months shortly before the author's death in 1957.

(H/B) HOWARDS END
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0045

First published in 1910, Howards End is the novel that earned E. M. Forster recognition as a major writer. At its heart lie two families - the wealthy and business-minded Wilcoxes and the cultured and idealistic Schlegels. When the beautiful and independent Helen Schlegel begins an impetuous affair with the ardent Paul Wilcox, a series of events is sparked - some very funny, some very tragic - that results in a dispute over who will inherit Howards End, the Wilcoxes' charming country home. As much about the clash between individual wills...

(H/B) TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0116

Though its fame as an icon of twentieth-century literature rests primarily on the brilliance of its narrative technique and the impressionistic beauty of its prose, To the Lighthouse is above all the story of a quest, and as such it possesses a brave and magical universality. Observed across the years at their vacation house facing the gales of the North Atlantic, Mrs. Ramsay and her family seek to recapture meaning from the flux of things and the passage of time. Though it is the death of Mrs. Ramsay on which the novel turns, her presenc...

Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0040

This brilliantly coloured tale of the French Revolution is an historical romance set in Paris and London. Famous for the character of Sidney Carton who sacrifices himself upon the guillotine' it is a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done '- the novel is also a powerful study of crowd psychology and the dark emotions aroused by the Revolution, illuminated by Dickens' lively comedy.

(H/B) GOETHE: SELECTED WORKS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0047

One of the towering figures of world literature, Goethe has never held quite as prominent a place in the English-speaking world as he deserves. This collection of his four major works, together with a selection of his finest letters and poems, shows that he is not only one of the very greatest European writers: he is also accessible, entertaining, and contemporary. The Sorrows of Young Werther is a story of self-destructive love that made its author a celebrity overnight at the age of twenty-five. Its exploration of the conflicts between i...
