(P/B) AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
AND FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0095

"Around the World in Eighty Days" (1873) relates the hair-raising journey made as a wager by the Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg, who succeeds - but only just! - in circling the globe within eighty days. The dour Fogg's obsession with his timetable is complemented by the dynamism and versatility of his French manservant, Passepartout, whose talent for getting into scrapes brings colour and suspense to the race against time. "Five Weeks in a Balloon" (1863) was Verne's first novel. It documents an apocryphal jaunt across the continent of A...

Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0020

Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0015

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) is acknowledged as the greatest dramatist of all time. He excels in plot, poetry and wit, and his talent encompasses the great tragedies of Hamlet, King Lear, Othello and Macbeth as well as the moving history plays and the comedies such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Taming of the Shrew and As You Like It with their magical combination of humour, ribaldry and tenderness. This volume is a reprint of the highly regarded Shakespeare Head Press edition, and it presents all the plays in the chronological order...

(H/B) THE COMPLETE STORIES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES
WITH ILLUSTRATIONS FROM THE 'STRAND' MAGAZINE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0059

It is more than a century since the ascetic, gaunt and enigmatic detective, Sherlock Holmes, made his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. From 1891, beginning with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the now legendary and pioneering Strand Magazine began serialising Arthur Conan Doyle's matchless tales of detection, featuring the incomparable sleuth patiently assisted by his doggedly loyal and lovably pedantic friend and companion, Dr Watson. The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Hol...

(P/B) ANNA KARENINA
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0044

Anna Karenina is one of the most loved and memorable heroines of literature. Her overwhelming charm dominates a novel of unparalleled richness and density. Tolstoy considered this book to be his first real attempt at a novel form, and it addresses the very nature of society at all levels - of destiny, death, human relationships and the irreconcilable contradictions of existence. It ends tragically, and there is much that evokes despair, yet set beside this is an abounding joy in life's many ephemeral pleasures, and a profusion of comic rel...

(P/B) WUTHERING HEIGHTS
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0042

Wuthering Heights is the wild, passionate story of intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father.

(P/B) PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0054

Pride and Prejudice, which opens with one of the most famous sentences in English Literature, is an ironic novel of manners. In it the garrulous and empty-headed Mrs Bennet has only one aim - that of finding a good match for each of her five daughters. In this she is mocked by her cynical and indolent husband. With its wit, its social precision and, above all, its irresistible heroine, Pride and Prejudice has proved one of the most enduringly popular novels in the English language. (from the publisher)...

(P/B) ETHICS
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0008

Benedict de Spinoza lived a life of blameless simplicity as a lens-grinder in Holland. And yet in his lifetime he was expelled from the Jewish community in Amsterdam as a heretic, and after his death his works were first banned by the Christian authorities as atheistic, then hailed by humanists as the gospel of Pantheism. His Ethics Demonstrated in Geometrical Order shows us the reality behind this enigmatic figure. First published by his friends after his premature death at the age of forty-four, the Ethics uses the methods of Euclid to d...

(P/B) ULYSSES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0080

James Joyce's astonishing masterpiece, Ulysses, tells of the diverse events which befall Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus in Dublin on 16 June 1904, during which Bloom's voluptuous wife, Molly, commits adultery. Initially deemed obscene in England and the USA, this richly-allusive novel, revolutionary in its Modernistic experimentalism, was hailed as a work of genius by W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot and Ernest Hemingway. Scandalously frank, wittily erudite, mercurially eloquent, resourcefully comic and generously humane, Ulysses offers the rea...

(P/B) A TALE OF TWO CITIES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0046

A Tale of Two Cities (1859), Dickens' greatest historical novel, traces the private lives of a group of people caught up in the cataclysm of the French Revolution and the Terror. Dickens based his historical detail on Garlyle's great work - The French Revolution - and also on his own observations and investigations during numerous visits to Paris. (from the publisher)...

(P/B) MRS DALLOWAY
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0065

Virginia Woolf's singular technique in Mrs Dalloway heralds a break with the traditional novel form and reflects a genuine humanity and a concern with the experiences that both enrich and stultify existence. Society hostess, Clarissa Dalloway is giving a party. Her thoughts and sensations on that one day, and the interior monologues of others whose lives are interwoven with hers gradually reveal the characters of the central protagonists. Clarissa's life is touched by tragedy as the events in her day run parallel to those of Septimus Warr...

(H/B) THE COLLECTED WORKS OF EDGAR ALLAN POE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0099

Edgar Poe was born the son of itinerant actors on January 19th, 1809 in Boston, Massachusets. Abandoned by his father and the later death of his mother, he was taken into the foster care of John Allan, a Virginia tobacco farmer. Now styled as Edgar Allan Poe, he distinguished himself at the University of Virginia but was equally adept at collecting debts from his assiduous gambling. His stepfather's disapproval shattered their fragile relationship and Poe left home to seek his fortune. In 1836 he married his cousin Virginia but despite his...

(P/B) MOBY DICK
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0105

Moby Dick is the story of Captain Ahab's quest to avenge the whale that 'reaped' his leg. The quest is an obsession and the novel is a diabolical study of how a man becomes a fanatic. But it is also a hymn to democracy. Bent as the crew is on Ahab's appalling crusade, it is equally the image of a co-operative community at work: all hands dependent on all hands, each individual responsible for the security of each. Among the crew is Ishmael, the novel's narrator, ordinary sailor, and extraordinary reader. Digressive, allusive, vulgar, trans...

(P/B) THE COLLECTED WORKS OF OSCAR WILDE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0126

Wilde's works are suffused with his aestheticism, brilliant craftsmanship, legendary wit and, ultimately, his tragic muse. He wrote tender fairy stories for children employing all his grace, artistry and wit, of which the best-known is "The Happy Prince". Counterpoints to this were his novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray", which shocked and outraged many readers of his day, and his stories for adults which exhibited his fascination with the relations between serene art and decadent life. Wilde took London by storm with his plays, particularl...

(P/B) DAVID COPPERFIELD
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0111

Dickens wrote of David Copperfield: 'Of all my books I like this the best'. Millions of readers in almost every language on earth have subsequently come to share the author's own enthusiasm for this greatly loved classic, possibly because of its autobiographical form. Following the life of David through many sufferings and great adversity, the reader will also find many light-hearted moments in the company of a host of English fiction's greatest stars including Mr Micawber, Traddles, Uriah Heep, Creakle, Betsy Trotwood, and the Peggoty fam...

With an Introduction, Bibliography and Glossary by Dr Paul Wright, Trinity College, Carmarthen. 'I mean to show things really as they are, not as they ought to be' wrote Byron (1788-1824) in his comic masterpiece Don Juan, which follows the adventures of the hero across the Europe and near East which Byron knew so well, touching on the major political, cultural and social concerns of the day. This selection includes all of that poem, and selections from Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, and the satirical poems 'English Bards and Scotch Reviewers...

(P/B) A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0125

With an Introduction and Notes by Dr. Jacqueline Belanger, University of Cardiff. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man represents the transitional stage between the realism of Joyce's Dubliners and the symbolism of Ulysses, and is essential to the understanding of the later work. This novel is a highly autobiographical account of the adolescence of Stephen Dedalus, who reappears in Ulysses, and who comes to realize that before he can become a true artist, he must rid himself of the stultifying effects of the religion, politics and essen...

(P/B) THE HAUNTED HOTEL
AND OTHER STORIES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0145

This is a unique collection of strange stories from the cunning pen of Wilkie Collins, author of "The Woman in White" and "The Moonstone". The star attraction is the novella "The Haunted Hotel", a clever combination of detective and ghost story set in Venice, a city of grim waterways, dark shadows and death. The action takes place in an ancient palazzo coverted into a modern hotel that houses a grisly secret. The supernatural horror, relentless pace, tight narrative, and a doomed countess characterise and distinguish this powerful tale. Th...

(P/B) UTOPIA
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0160

More's Utopia is a complex, innovative and penetrating contribution to political thought, culminating in the famous 'description' of the Utopians, who live according to the principles of natural law, but are receptive to Christian teachings, who hold all possessions in common, and view gold as worthless. Drawing on the ideas of Plato, St Augustine and Aristotle, Utopia was to prove seminal in its turn, giving rise to the genres of utopian and dystopian prose fiction whose practitioners include Sir Francis Bacon, H.G. Wells, Aldous Huxley a...
