(H/B) THE ODYSSEY
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0046

The Odyssey can claim to be Western literature's first adventure story, and describes the ten-year wanderings of Odysseus in his quest to return home after the Trojan war. He encounters giants, sorceresses and sea-monsters before he can get home and then must remain in disguise while seeking a way to rid his home of the suitors who, believing him dead, have besieged his wife. Both an enchanting fairy tale and a gripping drama, The Odyssey is eminently readable, not least for the rich complexity and magnetism of its hero. (From the publishe...

(H/B) THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES AND THE VALLEY OF FEAR
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0031

The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of Doyle's best-known Holmes novels, frequently adapted for film and television, which is not surprising given the highly dramatic scenes of mist-wrapped moors echoing to the horrific howls of a supernatural hound. Is this a genuinely devilish apparition or is there a cunning murderer at work? Only Sherlock Holmes can solve the mystery. This volume also contains The Valley of Fear, a dark, powerful tale in which Holmes confronts the evil Professor Moriarty once more. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) DON QUIXOTE
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0104

Don Quixote is a masterpiece of world fiction, a brilliant satire on traditional romances and an uproarious comedy and a prose-epic in a new genre for its time. Widely regarded as the world's first modern novel, and one of the funniest and most tragic books ever written, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errant Don Quixote de La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza. Don Quixote's mount is an old, bedraggled horse named Rocinante on which he travels through sixteenth-century Spain in search ...

Full of mischief, valour, ribaldry, and romance, The Arabian Nights has enthralled readers for centuries. This volume contains the most famous and representative stories from Sir Richard F. Burton's multivolume translation, and, unlike many editions, is complet...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0057

Lawrence's first major novel was also the first in the English language to explore ordinary working-class life from the inside.

When the marriage between Walter Morel and his sensitive, high-minded wife begins to break down, the bitterness of their frustration seeps into their children's lives. Their second son, Paul, craves the warmth of family and community, but knows tha...

(H/B) THE MOONSTONE
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0109

The Moonstone is a magnificent yellow diamond, 'large as a plover's egg', with a bloody history, which has been stolen from the home of Lady Verinder. An innocent man is accused of the crime. From this simple beginning Wilkie Collins creates a stunning, complex narrative of dark mystery, suspense and atmosphere. It is one of the cornerstones in the development of crime fiction. The poet and critic T.S. Eliot declared that it was 'the first, the longest and the best of modern English detective novels'. But The Moonstone, which has fascinate...

Northanger Abbey tells the story of Catherine Morland, a naive young woman whose perceptions of the world around her are greatly influenced by the romantic gothic novels to which she is addicted.

(H/B) FANNY HILL
MEMOIRS OF A WOMAN OF PLEASURE
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0017

Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, now better known as Fanny Hill, was published in two volumes, in 1748 and 1749. It remains a deliciously erotic book, encompassing the broad gamut of human sexuality in ways that both charm and arouse. Fannys journey of sexual discovery, taking her from innocent, virginal inge'nue to a classy, specialised prostitute in wicked London is an extraordinary document of 18th century manners, and von Gothas brilliant depictions of her discoveries are highly evocative of the period, with an intriguing contemporary t...

(H/B) THE WAVES
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0082

The Waves traces the lives and interactions of seven friends in an exploratory and sensuous narrative. The Waves was conceived and written during a highly political phase in Woolfs career, when she was speaking on issues of gender and of class. This was also the period when her love affair with Vita Sackville-West was at its most intense. The work is often described as if it were the product of a secluded, disembodied sensibility. Yet its writing is supremely engaged and engaging, providing an experience which the reader is unlikely to for...

(H/B) HEART OF DARKNESS
AND OTHER STORIES
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0119

Heart of Darkness is a short and vividly brutal account of colonial enterprise that has as much in common with the jaded Evelyn Waugh of Black Mischief as it does with any of Conrad's direct contemporaries in late 19th and early 20th century. It has managed to retain the fascination of readers and scholars to a far greater extent than his other fine works, such as the more conventionally novelistic tale of South American political chicanery and greed in Nostromo and the substantially more page-turning thriller The Secret Agent. It is accom...

(H/B) TALES OF THE JAZZ AGE
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0121

Published in 1922, the eleven Tales of the Jazz Age feature the flappers and lost young men of the period as well as a great variety of characters and scenes. Among them, the critically acclaimed novella ‘May Day’ contrasts drunken debutantes with a mob of war veterans battling socialists in the streets, ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, filmed with Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton, is a fantasy about a man who ages in reverse, and ‘A Diamond as Big as the Ritz’ is a surreal fable of excess.

Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0123

Miss Jean Brodie is a schoolmistress at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh with advanced ideas not only about the education of her charges, but also her own place in the scheme of things.

It was famously filmed with Dame Maggie Smith as Jean Brodie. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) UNCLE TOM'S CABIN
Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0070

Uncle Tom's Cabin brought the evils of slavery to the conscience and hearts of the American people by its moving portrayal of slave experience. In scenes of great dramatic power Harriet Beecher Stow shows us the human effects of an economic system in which slaves were property. Still controversial today, the novel is abrasive in its demand for change yet also brilliant in its deployment of dialogue, with great comic skill and powerful pathos. (From the publisher)...

Εκδότης: CRW PUBLISHING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3874-0030

THE CASE-BOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES contains Conan Doyle's last twelve stories about his great fictional detective. Compared with earlier collections these tales are darker, exploring such themes as treachery, mutilation and the terrible consequences of infidelity, and containing such gothic touches as a blood-sucking vampire and crypts at midnight.
