(P/B) SHAHNAMEH
THE PERSIAN BOOK OF KINGS
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-2571

Dick Davis, "our pre-eminent translator from the Persian" (Washington Post) has revised and expanded his highly-praised translation of Ferdowsi's masterpiece, including more than 100 pages of newly translated text. Davis's elegant combination of prose and verse allows the poetry of the Shanameh to sing its own tales directly, interspersed sparingly with clearly-marked explanations to ease along modern readers. Among the greatest works of world literature, this prodigious narrative, composed by the poet Ferdowsi in the late tenth century, t...

(P/B) HARD TIMES
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0699

Coketown is dominated by the figure of Mr Thomas Gradgrind, school headmaster and model of Utilitarian success. Feeding both his pupils and family with facts, he bans fancy and wonder from any young minds. As a consequence his obedient daughter Louisa marries the loveless businessman and 'bully of humanity' Mr Bounderby, and his son Tom rebels to become embroiled in gambling and robbery. And, as their fortunes cross with those of free-spirited circus girl Sissy Jupe and victimized weaver Stephen Blackpool, Gradgrind is eventually forced to...

(P/B) ON THE ROAD
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0280

On the Road swings to the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, traveller and mystic, the living epitome of Beat. Now recognized as a modern classic, its American Dream is nearer that of Walt Whitman than Scott Fitzgerald, and it goes racing towards the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy and autobiographical passion. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) MARTIN EDEN
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0317

The semiautobiographical Martin Eden is the most vital and original character Jack London ever created. Set in San Francisco, this is the story of Martin Eden, an impoverished seaman who pursues, obsessively and aggressively, dreams of education and literary fame. London, dissatisfied with the rewards of his own success, intended Martin Eden as an attack on individualism and a criticism of ambition; however, much of its status as a classic has been conferred by admirers of its ambitious protagonist. Andrew Sinclair's wide-ranging introduct...

(P/B) ULYSSES
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0274

Literature, as Joyce tells us through the character of Stephen Dedalus, 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'. Written over a seven-year period, from 1914 to 1921, Ulysses has survived bowderlization, legal action and bitter controversy. An undisputed modernist classic, its ceaseless verbal inventiveness and astonishingly wide-ranging allusions confirm its standing as an imperishable monument to the human condition. Declan Kiberd says in his introduction Ulysses is 'An endlessly open book of utopian epiphanies. It holds a mirro...

(P/B) THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0777

In Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, so enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence. Oscar Wilde'sThe Picture of Dorian Gray was a succe`s de scandale. Early readers were shocked by its hints at unspeakable sins, and the book was later used as evidenc...

(P/B) DEMONS
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1427

Pyotr and Stavrogin are the leaders of a Russian revolutionary cell. Their aim is to overthrow the Tsar, destroy society and seize power for themselves. Together they train terrorists who are willing to go to any lengths to achieve their goals - even if the mission means suicide. But when it seems the group is about to be discovered, will their recruits be willing to kill one of their own circle in order to cover their tracks? Partly based on the real-life case of a student murdered by his fellow revolutionaries, Dostoyevsky’s sprawling no...

(P/B) NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND AND THE DOUBLE
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1432

'Notes from Underground' (1864) is a study of a single character, 'the real man of the Russian majority', and a revelation of Dostoyevsky's own deepest beliefs. One of his best critics has said of the first part that it forms his 'most utterly naked pages. Never afterwards was he so fully and openly to reveal the inmost recesses, unmeant for display, of his heart.' 'The Double' (1846) is the nightmarish story of Mr Golyadkin, a man who is haunted or possessed by his own double. Is 'Mr Golyadkinjunior' really a double or simply a fearful si...

(P/B) THE COMPLETE POEMS
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0663

William Blake is the rebel par excellence of English poetry. The personal issues with which he wrestled seemed to him to be also the salient problems of human life. They include questions of the proper place of intellectual control in the personality, the place of impulse, the relations between authority and those it controls (and therefore between elders and children), the relations of the sexes, the folly of moral generalities (one law for the lion and the ox), the poison of jealousy, and the overwhelming importance of forgiveness. Chara...

(P/B) SELECTED POEMS
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1115

The thirteenth-century Persian philosopher, mystic, scholar and founder of the order of the Whirling Dervishes, Rumi was also a poet of transcendental power. His inspirational verse speaks with the universal voice of the human soul and brims with exuberant energy and passion. Rich in natural imagery from horses to fishes, flowers to birds and rivers to stars, the poems have an elemental force that has remained undiminished through the centuries. Their themes - tolerance, goodness, the experience of God, charity and awareness through love -...

(H/B) EMMA
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3224

The texts of Austen's novels in the Penguin Edition are based on the first editions and have been edited afresh. The texts of four of the novels are necessarily based on the first edition: in the case of Pride and Prejudice Austen sold the copyright to the publisher of the first edition and was not involved with the preparation of the two further editions in her life-time; Emma did not reach a second edition in Britain in Austen's lifetime; and Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published posthumously. Sense and Sensibility and Mansfield...

DON JUAN
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0674

Byron's exuberant masterpiece tells of the adventures of Don Juan, beginning with his illicit love affair at the age of sixteen in his native Spain and his subsequent exile to Italy. Following a dramatic shipwreck, his exploits take him to Greece, where he is sold as a slave, and to Russia, where he becomes a favourite of the Empress Catherine who sends him on to England. Written entirely in ottava rima stanza form, Byron's Don Juan blends high drama with earthy humour, outrageous satire of his contemporaries (in particular Wordsworth and ...

(P/B) FRANKENSTEIN
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1332

A terrifying vision of scientific progress without moral limits, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" leads the reader on an unsettling journey from the sublime beauty of the Swiss alps to the desolate waste of the arctic circle. This "Penguin Classics" edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Maurice Hindle. Obsessed with the idea of creating life itself, Victor Frankenstein plunders graveyards for the material with which to fashion a new being, shocking his creation to life with electricity. But this botched creature, rejected by its...

(P/B) PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0657

'Vanity, not love, has been my folly’ In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, when Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows us in Pride and Prejudice the folly of judging b...

(P/B) THE WOMAN IN THE DUNES
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-2065

One of the premier Japanese novels of the twentieth century, The Woman in the Dunes combines the essence of myth, suspense, and the existential novel.

(P/B) BOTCHAN
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3043

One of Japan's most treasured novels-new to Penguin Classics. A hilarious tale about a young man's rebellion against 'the system' in a country school, Natsume Soseki's Botchan has enjoyed a timeless popularity in Japan. The setting is Japan's deep south, where the author himself spent some time teaching English in a boys' school. Into this conservative world, with its social proprieties and established pecking order, breezes Botchan, down from the big city and with scant respect for either his elders or his noisy young charges. The result ...

(P/B) EXILE AND THE KINGDOM
STORIES
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1372

The stories of Exile and the Kingdom explore the dilemma of being an outsider - even in one's own country - and of allegiance. With intense power and lyricism, Camus evokes beautiful but harsh landscapes, whether the shimmering deserts of his native Algeria or the wild, mysterious jungles of Brazil. Here a Frenchwoman is gradually seduced by the sheer difference of North Africa, a mutilated renegade is driven mad by the cruelty of his own people, and a barrel-maker watches the slow decline of his craft. A kindly teacher must choose betw...

(P/B) A HAPPY DEATH
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1374

Is it possible to die a happy death? This is the central question of Camus's astonishing early novel, published posthumously and greeted as a major literary event. It tells the story of a young Algerian, Mersault, who defies society's rules by committing a murder and escaping punishment, then experimenting with different ways of life and finally dying a happy man. In many ways A Happy Death is a fascinating first sketch for The Outsider, but it can also be seen as a candid self-portrait, drawing on Camus's memories of his youth, travels an...
