(P/B) THE SELECTED POEMS OF EMILY DICKINSON
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0155

Initially a vivacious, outgoing person, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) progressively withdrew into a reclusive existence. An undiscovered genius during her lifetime, only seven out of her total of 1,775 poems were published prior to her death. She had an immense breadth of vision and a passionate intensity and awe for life, love, nature, time and eternity. Originally branded an eccentric, Emily Dickinson is now recognised as a major poet of great depth, startling originality and courage for as she wrote: "Assent and you are sane; / Demure you...

(P/B) THE COMPLETE POEMS OF WALT WHITMAN
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0154

Walt Whitman's verse gave the poetry of America a distinctive national voice. It reflects the unique vitality of the new nation, the vastness of the land and the emergence of a sometimes troubled consciousness, communicated in language and idiom regarded by many at the time as shocking. Whitman's poems are organic and free flowing, fit into no previously defined genre and skilfully combine autobiographical, sociological and religious themes with lyrical sensuality. His verse is a fitting celebration of a new breed of American and includes ...

(P/B) HUMAN, ALL TOO HUMAN AND BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0156

Human, All Too Human (1878) marks the point where Nietzsche abandons German romanticism for the French Enlightenment. At a moment of crisis in his life (no longer a friend of Richard Wagner, forced to leave academic life through ill health), he sets out his views in a scintillating and bewildering series of aphorisms which contain the seeds of his later philosophy (e.g. the will to power, the need to transcend conventional Christian morality). The result is one of the cornerstones of his life's work. It well deserves its subtitle 'A Book f...

(P/B) WEALTH OF NATIONS
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0157

Adam Smith (1723-1790) was one of the brightest stars of the eighteenth-century Scottish Enlightenment. An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations was his most important book. First published in London in March 1776, it had been eagerly anticipated by Smith’s contemporaries and became an immediate bestseller. That edition sold out quickly and others followed. Today, Smith’s Wealth of Nations rightfully claims a place in the Western intellectual canon. It is the first book of modern political economy, and still provides ...

(P/B) THE WORKS OF ALFRED LORD TENNYSON
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0234

ALTHOUGH TENNYSON (1809 - 1892) has often seemed to personify the Victorian Age, he was a poet before it began and his poems endure to speak clearly to this modern one. His mastery of a great variety of poetic forms and moods enables him to communicate such extremes of feeling as "calm despair and wild unrest"; rapturous love: "the soul of the rose went into my blood"; and noble resolve: ...One equal temper of heroic hearts Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek to find, and not to yield. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE KARAMAZOV BROTHERS
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0300

As Fyodor Karamazov awaits an amorous encounter, he is violently done to death. The three sons of the old debauchee are forced to confront their own guilt or complicity. Who will own to parricide? The reckless and passionate Dmitri? The corrosive intellectual Ivan? Surely not the chaste novice monk Alyosha? The search reveals the divisions which rack the brothers, yet paradoxically unite them. Around the writhings of this one dysfunctional family Dostoevsky weaves a dense network of social, psychological and philosophical relationships. At...

(P/B) LEVIATHAN
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0302

Since its first publication in 1651, Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan has been recognised as one of the most compelling, and most controversial, works of political philosophy written in English. Forged in the crucible of the civil and religious warfare of the mid-seventeenth century, it proposes a political theory that combines an unequivocal commitment to natural human liberty with the conviction that the sovereign power of government must be exercised absolutely. Leviathan begins from some shockingly naturalistic starting-points: an analysis of...

(P/B) ROMEO AND JULIET
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0067

Love, sex and death are the components of Shakespeare's classic story of the love of two young people which reaches across the barriers of family and convention. It encompasses great love, high drama, low comedy and a tragic ending. Romeo and Juliet is a pure tragedy of youth told in verse that is both youthful and intense. The loveliness and the music of the poetry make believable the otherwise commonplace afflictions of blighted love. (from the publisher)...

(P/B) THE TEMPEST
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0092

The Tempest is the most lyrical, profound and fascinating of Shakespeare's late comedies. Prospero, long exiled from Italy with his daughter Miranda, seeks to use his magical powers to defeat his former enemies. Eventually, having proved merciful, he divests himself of that magic, his 'art', and prepares to return to the mainland. The Tempest has often been regarded as Shakespeare's 'farewell to the stage' before his retirement. (from the publisher)...

(P/B) THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE-DAME
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0324

With an Introduction and Notes by Keith Wren, University of Kent at Canterbury. Translation by James Carroll Beckwith (1899). Set in 1482, Victor Hugo's powerful novel of 'imagination, caprice and fantasy' is a meditation on love, fate, architecture and politics, as well as a compelling recreation of the medieval world at the dawn of the modern age. In a brilliant reworking of the tale of Beauty and the Beast, Hugo creates a host of unforgettable characters - amongst them, Quasimodo, the hunchback of the title, hopelessly in love with the ...

(P/B) THE AGE OF INNOCENCE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0284

Widely regarded as one of Edith Wharton's greatest achievements, The Age of Innocence is not only subtly satirical, but also a sometimes dark and disturbing comedy of manners in its exploration of the 'eternal triangle' of love. Set against the backdrop of upper-class New York society during the 1870s, the author's combination of powerful prose combined with a thoroughly researched and meticulous evocation of the manners and style of the period, has delighted readers since the novel's first publication in 1920. In 1921 The Age of Innocence...

(P/B) THE SCARLET LETTER
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0291

This is a troubling story of crime, sin, guilt, punishment and expiation, set in the rigid moral climate of 17th-century New England. The young mother of an illegitimate child confronts her Puritan judges. However, it is not so much her harsh sentence, but the cruelties of slowly exposed guilt as her lover is revealed, that hold the reader enthralled all the way to the book's poignant climax.

(P/B) THE GOOD SOLDIER
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0292

With an Introduction and Notes by Sara Haslam, Department of English, The Open University. The Good Soldier is a masterpiece of twentieth-century fiction, an inspiration for many later, distinguished writers, including Graham Greene. Set before the First World War, it tells the tale of two wealthy and sophisticated couples, one English, one American, as they travel, socialise, and take the waters in the spa towns of Europe. They are 'playing the game', in style. That game has begun to unravel, however, and with compelling attention to the ...

(P/B) THREE SEA STORIES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0310

As these three specially commissioned stories amply demonstrate, Conrad is our greatest writer of the sea. His characters are tested by dramatic events 'that show in the light of day the inner worth of a man, the edge of his temper, and the fibre of his stuff; that reveal the quality of his resistance and the secret stuff of his pretences, not only to others but also to himself'. In Typhoon, Conrad's funniest story, Captain MacWhirr blunders into a hurricane that reveals the sea's treachery, violence and terror. Falk is desperate to get ma...

(P/B) COLLECTED POEMS OF OSCAR WILDE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0187

Wilde, glamorous and notorious, more famous as a playwright or prisoner than as a poet, invites readers of his verse to meet an unknown and intimate figure. The poetry of his formative years includes the haunting elegy to his young sister and the grieving lyric at the death of his father. The religious drama of his romance with Rome is captured here, as well as its resolution in his renewed love of ancient Greece. He explores forbidden sexual desires, pays homage to the great theatre stars and poets of his day, observes cityscapes with imp...

(P/B) THE COLLECTED SHORT STORIES OF SAKI
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0197

"All decent people live beyond their incomes nowadays and those who aren't respectable live beyond other people" Saki (H. H. Munro) stands alongside Anton Chekov and O. Henry as a master of the short story. His extraordinary stories are a mixture of humorous satire, irony and the macabre, in which the stupidities and hypocrisy of conventional society are viciously pilloried. Among the short stories are the well-known classics, Sredni Vastar and The Unrest Cure. "We all know that Prime Ministers are wedded to the truth, but like other marri...

(P/B) CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0201

Crime and Punishment is one of the greatest and most readable novels ever written. From the beginning we are locked into the frenzied consciousness of Raskolnikov who, against his better instincts, is inexorably drawn to commit a brutal double murder. From that moment on, we share his conflicting feelings of self-loathing and pride, of contempt for and need of others, and of his terrible despair and hope of redemption: and, in a remarkable transformation of the detective novel, we follow his agonised efforts to probe and confront both his ...

(P/B) THE INNOCENTS ABROAD
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0221

"Who could read the programme for the excursion without longing to make one of the party?" So Mark Twain acclaims his voyage from New York City to Europe and the Holy Land in June 1867. His adventures produced The Innocents Abroad, a book so funny and provocative it made him an international star for the rest of his life. He was making his first responses to the Old World - to Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, Constantinople, Sebastopol, Balaklava, Damascus, Jerusalem, Nazareth and Bethlehem. For the first time he was seeing the gre...

Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4655-0015

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.

(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...
