FEAR AND TREMBLING AND THE BOOK ON ADLER
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0071

Soren Kierkegaard not only transformed Protestant theology but also anticipated twentieth-century existentialism and provided it with many of its motifs. Fear and Trembling and The Book on Adler - addressed to a general audience - have the imaginative excitement and intense personal appeal of the greatest literature. Only Plato and Nietzsche have matched Kierkegaard's ability to give ideas so compellingly vivid and dramatic a shape. (From the publisher) "Fear and Trembling is among the best-known and influential works in nineteenth- and t...

(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...

(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) HAIKU
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0137

Simple yet capable of great complexity, the haiku is a tightly structured verse form that has a remarkable power to distill the essence of a moment keenly perceived. For centuries confined to a small literary elite in Japan, the writing of haiku is now practiced all over the world by those who are fascinated by its combination of technical challenge, expressive means, and extreme concentration. This anthology brings together hundreds of haiku by the Japanese masters - Basho, Issa, Buson, Shiki - with superb examples from nineteenth- and t...

(H/B) PERSUASION
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0181

Of all Jane Austen's great and delightful novels, Persuasion is widely regarded as the most moving. It is the story of a second chance. Anne Elliot, daughter of the snobbish, spendthrift Sir Walter Elliot, is a woman of quiet charm and deep feelings. When she was nineteen, she fell in love with - and was engaged to - a naval officer, the fearless and headstrong Captain Wentworth. But the young man had no fortune, and Anne allowed herself to be persuaded, against her profoundest instinct, to give him up.Now, at twenty-seven, and believing t...

NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0096

Nineteen Eighty-Four revealed George Orwell as one of the twentieth century's greatest mythmakers. While the totalitarian system that provoked him into writing it has since passed into oblivion, his harrowing cautionary tale of a man trapped in a political nightmare has had the opposite fate: its relevance and power to disturb our complacency seem to grow decade by decade. In Winston Smith's desperate struggle to free himself from an all-encompassing, malevolent state, Orwell zeroed in on tendencies apparent in every modern society, and ma...

(H/B) THE DIVINE COMEDY
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0248

The Divine Comedy, translated by Allen Mandelbaum, begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity. Mandelbaum's astonishingly Dantean translation, which captures so much of the life of the original, renders whole for us the masterpiece of that genius whom our greatest poets have recognized as a central model for all p...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0042

Set in the post-Great War Long Island/New York world of the rich. The narrator, Nick Carraway, sympathetically records the pathos of Gatsby's romantic dream which founders on the reality of corruption, the insulated selfishness of Tom and Daisy, and the cutting edge of violence....

(H/B) THE COLLECTED STORIES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0056

(...) The purpose of this edition then, is to give the most complete and comprehensibly organized collection of Hemingway's short fiction to date, and to correct some of the anomalies that have crept into other editions. Hemingway published four individual collections of stories during his lifetime. They are the tiny experimental prose volume, in our time (1924), the much expanded In Our Time (1925, with an extra story added in 1930), Men Without Women (1927) and Winner Take Nothing (1933). The arrangement of each of these volumes was, it ...

(H/B) PLATO: THE REPUBLIC
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0097

Toward the end of the astonishing period of Athenian creativity that furnished Western civilization with the greater part of its intellectual, artistic, and political wealth, Plato wrote The Republic, his discussion of the nature and meaning of justice and of the ideal state and its ruler. All subsequent European thinking about these subjects owes its character, directly or indirectly, to this most famous (and most accessible) of the Platonic dialogues. Although he describes a society that looks to some like the ideal human community and t...

(H/B) THE TALE OF GENJI
(GENJI MONOGATARI)
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0216

In the early eleventh century Murasaki Shikibu, a lady in the Heian court of Japan, wrote what many consider to be the world's first novel, more than three centuries before Chaucer. The Heian era (794-1185) is recognized as one of the very greatest periods in Japanese literature, and The Tale of Genji is not only the unquestioned prose masterpiece of that period but also the most lively and absorbing account we have of the intricate, exquisite, highly ordered court culture that made such a masterpiece possible. Genji is the favorite son ...

(H/B) DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (VOLUMES 1-3)
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0143

Volumes 1, 2, and 3 of the Bury Text, in a boxed set. Introduction by Hugh Trevor-Roper. Easily the most celebrated historical work in English, Gibbon's account of the Roman empire was in its time a landmark in classical and historical scholarship and remains a remarkable fresh and powerful contribution to the interpretation of Roman history more than two hundred years after its first appearance. Its fame, however, rests more on the exceptional clarity, scope and force of its argument, and the brilliance of its style, which is still a deli...

SHELLEY: POEMS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0135

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was perhaps the most intellectually adventurous of the great Romantic poets. A classicist, a headlong visionary, a social radical, and a poet of serene artistry with a lyric touch second to none, Shelley personified the richly various - and contradictory - energies of his time. This compact yet comprehensive collection showcases all the extraordinary facets of Shelley's art. From his most famous lyrical poems ("Ozymandias," "The Cloud") to his political and philosophical works ("The Mask of Anarchy," "Hymn ...

(H/B) LOLITA
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0090

When it was published in 1955, Lolita immediately became a cause ce'le`bre because of the freedom and sophistication with which it handled the unusual erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Vladimir Nabokov's wise, ironic, elegant masterpiece owes its stature as one of the twentieth century's novels of record not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story almost shocking in its beauty and tenderness. Awe and exhilaration - along with heartbreak and mordant wit - abound in thi...

(H/B) THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0082

With this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas, Thomas Mann rose to the front ranks of the great modern novelists, winning the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1929. The Magic Mountain takes place in an exclusive tuberculosis sanatorium in the Swiss Alps - a community devoted to sickness that serves as a fictional microcosm for Europe in the days before the First World War. To this hermetic and otherworldly realm comes Hans Castorp, an "ordinary young man" who arrives for a short visit and ends up staying for seven years, during which he succumbs bo...

FOUNDATION - FOUNDATION AND EMPIRE - SECOND FOUNDATION
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0231

Isaac Asimov's seminal Foundation trilogy - one of the cornerstones of modern speculative fiction - in a single hardcover volume. It is the saga of the Galactic Empire, crumbling after twelve thousand years of rule. And it is the particular story of psychohistorian Hari Seldon, the only man who can see the horrors the future has in store - a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and violence that will last for thirty thousand years. Gathering a band of courageous men and women, Seldon leads them to a hidden location at the edge of the galaxy, ...

(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 ...

(H/B) THE SOUND AND THE FURY
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0041

It is still extraordinary to think that Faulkner began writing "The Sound and the Fury" in the belief he might not be published again. He had just turned thirty and his third novel, on which he pinned elaborate hopes, had been rejected by his publisher with a recommendation that he did not offer it elsewhere. "I had", he said, "stopped thinking of myself in publishing terms". [...] The rejection of the book with which he expected to make his critical and commercial reputation had the effect of a purification. [...] Published on 7 October 1...

(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 ...
