(H/B) HEART OF DARKNESS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0018

Heart of Darkness grew out of a journey Joseph Conrad took up the Congo River; the verisimilitude that the great novelist thereby brought to his most famous tale everywhere enhances its dense and shattering power. Apparently a sailor’s yarn, it is in fact a grim parody of the adventure story, in which the narrator, Marlow, travels deep into the heart of the Congo where he encounters the crazed idealist Kurtz and discovers that the relative values of the civilized and the primitive are not what they seem. Heart of Darkness is a model of eco...

(H/B) BLUES POEMS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0186

The blues has left an indelible mark on the work of a diverse range of poets: from "The Weary Blues" by Langston Hughes and "Funeral Blues" by W. H. Auden, to "Blues on Yellow" by Marilyn Chin and "Reservation Blues" by Sherman Alexie. Here are blues-influenced and blues - inflected poems from, among others, Gwendolyn Brooks, Allen Ginsberg, June Jordan, Richard Wright, Nikki Giovanni, Charles Wright, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Cornelius Eady. And here, too, are classic song lyrics-poems in their own right-from Bessie Smith, Robert Johnson, Ma ...

(H/B) HAIKU
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0137

Simple yet capable of great complexity, the haiku is a tightly structured verse form that has a remarkable power to distill the essence of a moment keenly perceived. For centuries confined to a small literary elite in Japan, the writing of haiku is now practiced all over the world by those who are fascinated by its combination of technical challenge, expressive means, and extreme concentration. This anthology brings together hundreds of haiku by the Japanese masters - Basho, Issa, Buson, Shiki - with superb examples from nineteenth- and t...

(H/B) TRAGEDIES (VOLUME 1)
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0107

"Hamlet [is] the first indisputably great European tragedy since the time of the Greeks... [Shakespeare] transformed primitive revenge drama into metaphysical tragedy of enduringly awesome spaciousness, resonance and reverberation... "These four plays were written one after the other in the relatively short period of 1598 to 1606. It beggars belief" (From the introduction by Tony Tanner)...

(H/B) THE WOMAN IN WHITE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0225

Wilkie Collins's classic thriller took the world by storm on its first appearance in 1859, with everything from dances to perfumes to dresses named in honor of the "woman in white." The novel's continuing fascination stems in part from a distinctive blend of melodrama, comedy, and realism; and in part from the power of its story. The catalyst for the mystery is Walter Hartright's encounter on a moonlit road with a mysterious woman dressed head to toe in white. She is in a state of confusion and distress, and when Hartright helps her...

(H/B) THE COLLECTED STORIES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0056

(...) The purpose of this edition then, is to give the most complete and comprehensibly organized collection of Hemingway's short fiction to date, and to correct some of the anomalies that have crept into other editions. Hemingway published four individual collections of stories during his lifetime. They are the tiny experimental prose volume, in our time (1924), the much expanded In Our Time (1925, with an extra story added in 1930), Men Without Women (1927) and Winner Take Nothing (1933). The arrangement of each of these volumes was, it ...

(H/B) THE PICKWICK PAPERS
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0039

In this classic social commentary from Dickens, Mr. Samuel Pickwick, retired business man and confirmed bachelor, is determined that after a quiet life of enterprise the time has come to go out into the world. Together with the other members of the Pickwick Club: Tracy Tupman, Augustus Snodgrass and Nathaniel Winkle, the portly innocent embarks on a series of hilariously comic adventures. But can Pickwick retain his good will towards his fellow humans once he discovers the evils of the world? Charles Dickens's satirical masterpiece, The Pi...

(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 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 ...

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) 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 ...

(H/B) CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0247

Dostoesky's drama of sin, guilt and redemption transmutes the sordid story of an old woman's murder by a desperate student into the nineteenth century's profoundest and most compelling philosophical novel. Grim in theme and setting, the book nevertheless seduces by its combination of superbly drawn characters, narrative brilliance and manic comedy. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) COLLECTED STORIES
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0072

As a young writer living in Lahore during the time of the British Raj, Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was possessed by an enormous subject - India - and his genius for rendering its beauty and strangeness was even then so fully formed that we have to look to the likes of Shakespeare and Dickens to find writers equally precocious. What is even more astonishing, and what this selection of stories from across his entire career reveals, is the way that his talent grew and developed over time. The work he did toward the end of his long writing lif...

(H/B) THE CASTLE
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0154

Arriving in a village to take up the position of land surveyor for the mysterious lord of a castle, the character known as K. finds himself in a bitter and baffling struggle to contact his new employer and go about his duties. As the villagers and the Castle officials block his efforts at every turn, K.'s consuming quest - quite possibly a self-imposed one - to penetrate the inaccessible heart of the Castle and take its measure is repeatedly frustrated. Kafka once suggested that the would-be surveyor in The Castle is driven by a wish "to g...

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. (From the publisher)...

(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...

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.

(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.
