(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) 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) 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) SELECTED LETTERS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0253

Author of the first gothic novel and son of the first prime minister of Great Britain, Horace Walpole had wide-ranging interests that included literature, politics, world affairs, collecting, antiquities, and architecture, and to his numerous correspondents he wrote on these and other topics in prose that is celebrated for its charm, eloquence, and wit. This new Everyman's edition offers an extensive selection of Walpole's letters, helpfully arranged by subject so the reader can choose from themes including social life, the Court, politics...

(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. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility...

(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) OUR MUTUAL FRIEND
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0038

In his last completed novel, published in 1864-5, Dickens confirmed his reputation as a story-teller of genius while extending the sphere of his imagination to new worlds. Like all Dickens' novels, OUR MUTUAL FRIEND weaves together many stories, uniting them in the bizarre symbolism of the wealth which derives from a rubbish tip. With all the energy of his earlier novels, this one has an extra resonance and depth of shade. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) THE LOVER / WARTIME NOTEBOOKS / PRACTICALITIES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0254

Marguerite Duras was one of the leading intellectuals and novelist of post-war France, but her wartime writings were not published in full until after her death. The Wartime Notebooks trace Duras's formative experiences - including her difficult childhood in Indochina and her harrowing wait for her husband's return from Nazi internment - revealing the personal history behind her bestselling novels. The Lover is the best known of these; set in pre-war Indochina, its haunting tale of a tumultuous affair between an adolescent French girl and ...

(P/B) VICTORY
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0024

Set in the Malay Archipelago where the author spent much of his life as an officer in the British Merchant marine, VICTORY is a sombre yet brilliant study of good and evil in Conrad's mature manner, blending moral profundity, bitter irony and pathos. The theme of a man reaching out from his solitude in sympathy with another human being is explored through the story of Axel Heyst's attempt to rescue a girl from the machinations of a brutal gang.

(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...

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) VANITY FAIR
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0114

A panoramic satire of English society during the Napoleonic Wars, Vanity Fair is William Makepeace Thackeray’s masterpiece. At its center is one of the most unforgettable characters in nineteenth-century literature: the enthralling Becky Sharp, a charmingly ruthless social climber who is determined to leave behind her humble origins, no matter the cost. Her more gentle friend Amelia, by contrast, only cares for Captain George Osborne, despite his selfishness and her family’s disapproval. As both women move within the flamboyant milieu of R...

(H/B) THE PLAGUE, THE FALL, EXILE AND THE KINGDOM, AND SELECTED ESSAYS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0010

From one of the most brilliant and influential thinkers of the twentieth century - two novels, six short stories, and a pair of essays in a single volume. In both his essays and his fiction, Albert Camus (1913-1960) de-ployed his lyric eloquence in defense against despair, providing an affirmation of the brave assertion of humanity in the face of a universe devoid of order or meaning. The Plague - written in 1947 and still profoundly relevant - is a riveting tale of horror, survival, and resilience in the face of a devastating epidemic. Th...

(H/B) JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0001

This remarkable new translation by John E. Woods of the Nobel Prize-winner’s great masterpiece is a major literary event. Thomas Mann regarded his monumental retelling of the biblical story of Joseph as his magnum opus. He conceived of the four parts-The Stories of Jacob, Young Joseph, Joseph in Egypt, and Joseph the Provider-as a unified narrative, a "mythological novel" of Joseph’s fall into slavery and his rise to be lord over Egypt. Deploying lavish, persuasive detail, Mann conjures for us the world of patriarchs and pharaohs, the anci...

(H/B) THE COLLECTED STORIES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0100

Pushkin's prose tales are the foundation stones on which the great novels of Turgenev, Tolstoy, and Dostoevsky were built, but they are also brilliant and fascinating in their own right. In both prose and verse, Pushkin was one of the world's great storytellers: direct and dramatic, clear-sighted, vivid, and passionate. This new and expanded Everyman's edition of his stories includes all the mature work. In addition to such novella-length masterpieces as The Captain's Daughter and The Tales of Belkin the collection now contains many more s...
