CANTERBURY TALES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0014

The precise, unerring, delicately emphatic characterizations for which The Canterbury Tales is so famous are no more extraordinary than Chaucer’s utter mastery of English rhythms and his effortless versification. Ranging from animal fables to miniature epics of courtly love and savagely hilarious comedies of sexual comeuppance, these stories told by pilgrims on the way to the shrine of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury reveal a teeming, vital fourteenth-century English society on the verge of its Renaissance.

(H/B) THE COMPLETE SHORT NOVELS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0226

Anton Chekhov, widely hailed as the supreme master of the short story, also wrote five works long enough to be called short novels-here brought together in one volume for the first time, in a masterly new translation by the award-winning translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. The Steppe - the most lyrical of the five - is an account of a nine-year-old boy's frightening journey by wagon train across the steppe of southern Russia. The Duel sets two decadent figures - a fanatical rationalist and a man of literary sensibility - on...

(H/B) THE COMPLETE STORIES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0099

Edgar Allan Poe's gift for the macabre - his genius in finding the strangeness lurking at the heart of things - was so extraordinary that he exerted a major influence on Baudelaire and French symbolism, on Freudian analysis, and also on the detective novel and the Hollywood movie. His psychologically profound stories of encounters with the marvelous, the uncanny, and the dreadful represent - in contrast to the optimism of writers like Emerson and Whitman - the other, darker side of the nineteenth-century American sensibility.

(H/B) BLEAK HOUSE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0028

Considered by many readers, including Shaw, Chesterton, Conrad and Trilling, as one of Dickens's finest achievements, Bleak House tells the complex story of a notorious lawsuit in which love and inheritance are set against the classic urban background of nineteenth-century London, where fog on the river, seeping into the very bones of the characters, symbolizes the pervasive corruption of the legal system and the society which supports it. Displaying the writer's familiar panoramic sweep and enormous cast of brilliant characters, the novel...

(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) THE BROTHER'S KARAMAZOV
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0244

This is a magnificent new translation of Dostoevsky's masterpiece, which when first published in 1991 was described by the Times as 'a miracle' and by The Independent as a near 'ideal translation'. The Brothers Karamazov - Dostoevsky's most widely read novel - is at once a murder mystery, a mordant comedy of family intrigue, a pioneering work of psychological realism and an unblinking look into the abyss of human suffering.

(H/B) FOUNDATION TRILOGY
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) BRAVE NEW WORLD
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0232

A towering classic of dystopian satire, BRAVE NEW WORLD is a brilliant and terrifying vision of a soulless society - and of one man who discovers the human costs of mindless conformity. Hundreds of years in the future, the World Controllers have created an ideal civilization. Its members, shaped by genetic engineering and behavioral conditioning, are productive and content in roles they have been assigned at conception. Government-sanctioned drugs and recreational sex ensure that everyone is a happy, unquestioning consumer; messy emotions...

(H/B) THE COMPLETE ENGLISH POEMS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0121

"The theme that unites Milton’s greatest poems is temptation. In Comus and the epics temptation is central to the plot... His fondness for this theme is related to the moral and intellectual integrity that is such a prominent feature of Milton’s own character, and that shapes the character of his poems."-- from the Introduction by Gordon Campbell. John Milton wrote poetry of such sublime beauty that he managed, through its universal influence, to transform the character of the English language. From his astonishing epic Paradise Lost, wit...

(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 HANDMAID'S TALE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0174

A gripping vision of our society radically overturned by a theocratic revolution, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale has become one of the most powerful and most widely read novels of our time. Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read.

(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) PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0172

No novel in English has given more pleasure than Pride and Prejudice. Because it is one of the great works in our literature, critics in every generation reexamine and reinterpret it. But the rest of us simply fall in love with it - and with its wonderfully charming and intelligent heroine, Elizabeth Bennet. And everyone is held fast not only by the novel’s romantic suspense but also by the fascinations of the world we visit. The life of the English country gentry at the turn of the nineteenth century is made as real to us as our own, not ...

(P/B) SAMUEL BECKETT TRILOGY
MOLLOY, MALONE DIES, THE UNNAMABLE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0267

Samuel Beckett is the greatest Irish novelist of the later twentieth century, and this trilogy of novels is his masterpiece -which makes it perhaps the outstanding literary work of our time. Because Beckett has a reputation for being difficult, even obscure, readers of the trilogy are bound to be struck not only by the verbal brilliance and inventiveness of the three novels, but also by their extraordinary humour which ranges from wit to broad comedy and even farce in a recognizably Irish way. Each story records an episode of human enduran...

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...
