(H/B) THE BIG SLEEP - FAREWELL, MY LOVELY - THE HIGH WINDOW
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0011

Raymond Chandler's first three novels, published here in one volume, established his reputation as an unsurpassed master of hard-boiled detective fiction. The Big Sleep, Chandler's first novel, introduces Philip Marlowe, a private detective inhabiting the seamy side of Los Angeles in the 1930s, as he takes on a case involving a paralyzed California millionaire, two psychotic daughters, blackmail, and murder. In Farewell, My Lovely, Marlowe deals with the gambling circuit, a murder he stumbles upon, and three very beautiful but potentially...

(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) ARABIC POEMS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0259

A rare bilingual anthology of poems from the sixth century to the present, Arabic Poems is a one-of-a-kind showcase of a fascinating literary tradition. The Arabic poetic legacy is as vast as it is deep, spanning a period of fifteen centuries in regions from Morocco to Iraq. Themes of love, nature, religion, and politics recur in works drawn from the pre-Islamic oral tradition through poems anticipating the recent Arab Spring. Editor Marle Hammond has selected more than fifty poems reflecting desire and longing of various kinds: for the ...

(H/B) ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0086

(...) One Hundred Years of Solitude supposes two readings because it supposes two authorships. The first reading addresses a text which we suppose straightforward: a writer called Gabriel Garcia Marquez relates the history of the founding family of Macondo, sequentially, chronologically, with a biblical and Rabelaisian hyperbole: Aureliano son of Jose Arcadio son of Aureliano son of Jose Arcadio... The second reading begins the moment the first ends: we discover that the chronicle of Macondo had been written already in the papers of the mi...

(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) GREAT EXPECTATIONS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0031

One of Charles Dickens's most fascinating novels, Great Expectations follows the orphan Pip as he leaves behind a childhood of misery and poverty after an anonymous benefactor offers him a chance at the life of a gentleman. From the young Pip's first terrifying encounter with the convict Magwitch in the gloom of a graveyard to the splendidly morbid set pieces in Miss Havisham's mansion to the magnificently realized boat chase down the Thames, Great Expectations is filled with the transcendent excitement that Dickens could so abundantly pro...

(H/B) LITTLE DORRIT
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0033

Of the complex, richly rewarding masterworks he wrote in the last decade of his life, Little Dorrit is the book in which Charles Dickens most fully unleashed his indignation at the fallen state of mid-Victorian society. Crammed with persons and incidents in whose recreation nothing is accidental or spurious, containing, in its picture of the Circumlocution Office, the most witheringly exact satire of a bureaucracy we possess, Little Dorrit is a stunning example of how thoroughly Dickens could put his flair for the theatrical and his comic ...

(H/B) EMERSON: POEMS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0145

Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of the best-loved figures in nineteenth-century American literature. Though he earned his central place in our culture as an essayist and philosopher, since his death his reputation as a poet has grown as well. Known for challenging traditional thought and for his faith in the individual, Emerson was the chief spokesman for the Transcendentalist movement. His poems speak to his most passionately held belief: that external authority should be disregarded in favor of one's own experience. From the embattled farmers...

(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...

(H/B) OFFSHORE, HUMAN VOICES, THE BEGINNING OF SPRING
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0261

Sixty-one when she published her first novel, Penelope Fitzgerald based many subsequent books on the experiences of a long and varied life. Offshore, which won the Booker Prize in 1979, explores her time living on a barge at Battersea Reach. Human Voices takes place in the BBC where she worked during World War II. Both are vivid, intimate pictures of ordinary life, startling, sad and funny by turns, conjuring up complex worlds with the economy of poetry. The Beginning of Spring is an historical novel operating on a larger canvas. It presen...

(H/B) SONG OF SOLOMON
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0089

In this celebrated novel, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison created a new way of rendering the contradictory nuances of black life in America. Its earthy poetic language and striking use of folklore and myth established Morrison as a major voice in contemporary fiction. Song of Solomon begins with one of the most arresting scenes in our century's literature: a dreamlike tableau depicting a man poised on a roof, about to fly into the air, while cloth rose petals swirl above the snow-covered ground and, in the astonished crowd below...

(H/B) JANE EYRE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0242

Now a classic feminist text, Jane Eyre was the first of Charlotte Bronte's novels to be published, in 1847. Like her sister Emily's Wuthering Heights, which it matches in power, Charlotte's story is a variation on the theme of the eternal triangle. It is also that rare thing, a completely personal book.

(H/B) THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0251

On the day of his wedding, Edmond Dantes, master mariner, is arrested in Marseille on trumped-up charges and spirited away to the cellars of the Chateau d'If, an impregnable sea fortress in which he is imprisoned indefinitely.

(H/B) A FAREWELL TO ARMS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0057

(...) Read today, in the light of Hemingway's whole achievement, "A Farewell to Arms" is his most carefully composed and complex book. It is clearly a work of his fictional maturity, yet written before his literary methods had hardened, as they would - before the 'one true sentence' turned into a familiar code, almost a parody of itself, before the Hemingway hero had become the tough, hard-cased, exemplary man of action, suffering yet in command, always knowing the right places, drinking the right drinks. Several of the early reviewers wer...

(H/B) THE COMPLETE SHORTER FICTION
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0155

This complete collection of Melville's shorter fiction contains several relatively unknown masterpieces and a number of other stories which throw fascinating light on the author. Billy Budd is quite simply one of the nineteenth century's greatest works of fiction, combining all that age's moral fervour with an unparalleled visionary intensity. The very singular achievement of Benito Cereno reveals a different aspect to Melville's nature, while the other delightful Piazza Tales suggest his unexpected taste for comedy and fantasy. Those who ...

(H/B) IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME (VOLUME 1)
SWANN'S WAY - WITHIN A BUDDING GROVE (PART 1)
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0158

Generally agreed to be the greatest novel of the twentieth century -and possibly any other- Proust's masterpiece is here presented in the latest revision to the classic Scott Moncrieff translation. On the surface a traditional Bildungsroman describing the narrator's journey of self-discovery, this huge and complex book is also a panoramic and richly comic portrait of France in the author's lifetime, and a profound meditation on the nature of art, love, time, memory and death. But for most readers it is the characters of the novel who loom ...
