(P/B) SELECTED POEMS 1930-1989
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0615

It was as a poet that Samuel Beckett launched himself in the little reviews of 1930s Paris, and as a poet that he ended his career. This new selection, from Whoroscope (1930) to «what is the word» (1988), describes a lifetime’s arc of writing. It was as a poet moreover that Beckett made his first breakthrough into writing in French, and the Selected Poems represents work in both languages, including the sequence of brief but highly crafted mirlitonnades, which did so much to usher in the style of his late prose, and come as close as anythi...

(P/B) THE BELL JAR
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0079

When Esther Greenwood wins an internship on a New York fashion magazine in 1953, she is elated, believing she will finally realise her dream to become a writer. But in between the cocktail parties and piles of manuscripts, Esther's life begins to slide out of control. She finds herself spiralling into depression and eventually a suicide attempt, as she grapples with difficult relationships and a society which refuses to take women's aspirations seriously. The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath's only novel, was originally published in 1963 under the p...

(P/B) THE BOOK OF LAUGHTER AND FORGETTING
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0454

"This book is a novel in the form of variations. The various parts follow each other like the various stages of a voyage leading into the interior of a theme, the interior of a thought, the interior of a single, unique situation the understanding of which recedes from my sight into the distance. It is a book about laughter and about forgetting, about forgetting and about Prague, about Prague and about the angels." The Book of Laughter and Forgetting is the most secret of Kundera's novels. This new translation is the first to be fully autho...

(P/B) FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSICAL COMPOSITION
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0744

Fundamentals of Musical Composition represents the culmination of more than forty years in Schoenberg's life devoted to the teaching of musical principles to students and composers in Europe and America. For his classes he developed a manner of presentation in which 'every technical matter is discussed in a very fundamental way, so that at the same time it is both simple and thorough'. This book can be used for analysis as well as for composition. On the one hand, it has the practical objective of introducing students to the process of com...

POEMS SELECTED BY JOHN FULLER
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0089

W. H. Auden (1907-73) came to prominence in the 1930s among a generation of outspoken poets that included his friends Louis MacNeice, Stephen Spender and Cecil Day-Lewis. But he was also an intimate and lyrical poet of great originality, and a master craftsman of some of the most cherished and influential poems of the past century. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) REPORT TO GRECO
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0130

Kazantzakis's autobiographical novel Report to Greco was one of the last things he wrote before he died. It paints a vivid picture of his childhood in Crete, still occupied by the Turks, and then steadily grows into a spiritual quest that takes him to Italy, Jerusalem, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Russia and the Caucasus, and finally back to Crete again. At different times Nietzsche, Bergson, Buddha, Homer and Christ dominate as his spiritual masters. (From the publisher) "There can never be any doubt that Kazantzakis was the possessor of geniu...

(P/B) JOHNNY PANIC AND THE BIBLE OF DREAMS
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0538

From her mid-teens Sylvia Plath wrote stories, at first easily and successfully, but then with increasing difficulty as the demands of her real vision complicated her growing ambition to make a career as a conventional storywriter. When the first edition of Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams appeared, Margaret Walters said of it in the Guardian, 'the book does offer . . . new insight into her development as a writer, suggesting how even her mistakes and dead ends contributed to the formation of an original and pathfinding talent'. This s...

(P/B) OUTLINE
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0935

Outline is a novel in ten conversations. Spare and lucid, it follows a novelist teaching a course in creative writing over an oppressively hot summer in Athens. She leads her student in storytelling exercises. She meets other writers for dinner. She goes swimming in the Ionian Sea with her seatmate from the place. The people she encounters speak volubly about themselves, their fantasies, anxieties, pet theories, regrets, and longings. And through these disclosures, a portrait of the narrator is drawn by contrast, a portrait of a woman lear...

(P/B) THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0457

«The Unbearable Lightness of Being» is a story of irreconcilable love and infidelities in which Milan Kundera addresses himself to the nature of twentieth-century «Being», offering a wide range of brilliant and amusing philosophical speculations. First published in 1984, Kundera’s masterly novel encompasses the extremes of comedy and tragedy, and was at once hailed by critics as a contemporary classic. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE COMPLETE DRAMATIC WORKS OF SAMUEL BECKETT
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0187

The present volume gathers all of Beckett's texts for theatre, from 1955 to 1984. It includes both the major dramatic works and the short and more compressed texts for the stage and for radio. (From the publisher) "He believes in the cadence, the comma, the bite of word on reality, whatever else he believes; and his devotion to them, he makes clear, is a sufficient focus for the reader's attention. In the modern history of literature he is a unique moral figure, not a dreamer of rose-gardens but a cultivator of what will grow in the waste...

(P/B) SOLARIS
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0775

When Kris Kelvin arrives at the planet Solaris to study the ocean that covers its surface he is forced to confront a painful, hitherto unconscious memory embodied in the physical likeness of a long-dead lover. Others suffer from the same affliction and speculation rises among scientists that the Solaris ocean may be a massive brain that creates incarnate memories, but its purpose in doing so remains a mystery... Solaris raises a question that has been at the heart of human experience and literature for centuries: can we truly understand th...

Εκδότης: FABER & FABER

Querelle, a young sailor at large in the port of Brest, is an object of illicit desire to his diary-keeping superior officer, Lieutenant Seblon. He is coveted, too, by a corrupt policeman, Mario, and gives himself freely both to brothel-keeper Madame Lysiane and to her husband. But Querelle is a thief and a murderer - not a man to be trusted or trifled with. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE LIFE OF HUNGER
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0509

In a wistful, tough, funny, clever, and characteristically odd memoir-cum-novel, Amelie Nothomb casts herself as hunger: hunger for experience, hunger for life, hunger for sweetness and, in what is the book's nucleus, hunger for hunger (the period during which she was afflicted by acute anorexia). The daughter of a Belgian diplomat, Amelie had an itinerant childhood, ranging from Tokyo to Peking and Paris to New York by way of Bangladesh. Recounting these formative journeys right up to her return to Japan in 1989, and the Kobe earthquake,...
