(P/B) KINDLED TERRACES
AMERICAN POETS IN GREECE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4173-0000

Kindled Terraces, Don Schofield's cornucopia anthology of American poets in Greece, is living proof of the power of the philhellenic tradition - the magnetic tug it exerts on a generation of our finest poets, reminding them of the past, restoring them in the present, thanks to the light and landscape and eloquence of that enchanted country. (Robert Fagles translator of The Iliad and The Odyssey) This is a necessary and a timely contribution to current conversations in and about poetry, bringing together a fascinating blend of voices, an u...

(H/B) GRAPHS, MAPS, TREES
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0054

The "great iconoclast of literary criticism" reinvents the study of the novel. In this groundbreaking book, Franco Moretti argues that literature scholars should stop reading books and start counting, graphing, and mapping them instead. In place of the traditionally selective literary canon of a few hundred texts, Moretti offers charts, maps and time lines, developing the idea of "distant reading" into a full-blown experiment in literary historiography, in which the canon disappears into the larger literary system. Charting entire genres -...

INCOGNITA
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0024

Returning to Florence on the occasion of his eighteenth birthday, Aurelian - together with his sworn companion Hippolito - dons his disguise in anticipation of the famous Florentine ball. Once there, the two are soon separated, and each finds himself paired off with a beautiful - and masked - lady. Whilst Aurelian yearns to learn the true identity of his 'Incognita', Hippolito is mistaken for another and brazenly plays along with the conceit. As morning dawns, the youths cannot escape the elaborate web of deceit they have unwittingly creat...

ROCK CRYSTAL
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0021

This seemingly simple fable of two children lost in an icy landscape is eloquent in its innocence, but is implicit with the fragility of life and the inevitability of death. This quasi-fairy tale speaks of village life in the high mountains, but is also a parable of belief and faith. "Rock Crystal" is a Christmas story and a story about the heart of the ice, the crystal. (From the publisher)...

FASCINATION
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1262

This is William Boyd's third volume of short stories following his acclaimed collections On the Yankee Station (1981) and The Destiny of Nathalie X (1995). Described as "the finest storyteller of his generation", Boyd shows his mastery of the form as these stories range widely through time and space. In a brilliant array of styles and narratives we move from 1930s Germany to Los Angeles in the Second World War, from contemporary Oxford to 19th century Russia. Whether in London or Amsterdam. Eastbourne or a Normandy village these stories ex...

WILD GRASS
THREE STORIES OF CHANGE IN MODERN CHINA
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1349

WILD GRASS: THREE STORIES OF CHANGE IN MODERN CHINA looks at how an authoritarian government can keep up with the pressures for change from a rapidly modernizing society, where levels of education and prosperity are rising every day. Told through the eyes of three remarkably unremarkable people, the stories are also allegories for China's countryside, its cities and its spiritual realm. (From Ian Johnson's website)...

(P/B) NIGHTINGALES AND PLEASURE GARDENS
TURKISH LOVE POEMS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3714-0003

The earliest Turkish verses, dating from the sixth century A.D., were love lyrics. Since then, love has dominated the Turks' poetic modes and moods - pre-Islamic, Ottoman classical, folk, modern. In style, form and sensibility, this collection offers a broad spectrum: virtually all types and varieties are represented here. The English versions are loyal to the originals and strive to be authentic poems in English. Here are lyrics from pre-Islamic Central Asia, passages from epics, mystical ecstasies of such eminent thirteenth-century figu...

A NOVEL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0035

This sequel to Julia Kristeva's celebrated allegory "The Old Man and the Wolves" returns to the corrupt seaside resort of a mythical town, where the boundaries between East and West, civilization and barbarism, and good and evil are erased. Part mystery, part meditation, this engrossing tale features the return of Parisian amateur detective and newspaper reporter Stephanie Delacour (Kristeva's alter ego), drawn into the mystery of a friend's murder. The story opens with the gruesome discovery of the decapitated body of gifted translator Gl...

Preparing to deliver a lecture in Pisa, Professor Horace Dorlan plans to incorporate music and performance into his scientific presentation. On the eve of his big event, however, strange things start to happen. Consciousness and reality start to shift, divergent voices speak of confusing things and questions start to mount up. Where, for instance, is his wife, why is there a miniature musical quintet in his room, and what of the accident that afflicted him? A darkly imaginative tour de force - that melds elements of silent movies, graphic ...

Sherlock's Sisters: The British Female Detective, 1864-1913 examines the fictional female detective in Victorian and Edwardian literature. This character, originating in the 1860s, configures a new representation of women in narratives of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

(P/B) SELECTED POEMS, PROSE AND LETTERS
Εκδότης: BROADVIEW PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0735-0018

Felicia Hemans was the most widely read woman poet in the nineteenth-century English-speaking world. Broadview’s edition shows why she was one of the few standard poets to be found in middle-class homes on both sides of the Atlantic, despite being routinely disparaged as a "merely" feminine poet. Included here is poetry representative of her entire career, from often-anthologized works, such as "The Homes of England" and "Casabianca," to several long poems in their entirety, such as "The Forest Sanctuary." Also included are selections of h...

(P/B) BUG-JARGAL
Εκδότης: BROADVIEW PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0735-0104

Victor Hugo's Bug-Jargal (1826) is one of the most important works of nineteenth-century colonial fiction, and quite possibly the most sustained novelistic treatment of the Haitian Revolution by a major European author. This Broadview edition makes Hugo's novel available in a completely new English translation, the first in over one hundred years. Set in 1791, during the first months of a slave revolt that would eventually lead to the creation of the black republic of Haiti in 1804, Bug-Jargal is a stirring tale of interracial friendship a...

(H/B) SECRET HISTORIES
VOLUME II OF THE PURCELL PAPERS
Εκδότης: WILDSIDE PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0794-0005

The Purcell Papers (1880) are a collection of Gothic, supernatural, historical and humorous short stories by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-73) originally written for the Dublin University Magazine. The first twelve were written between 1838-40 and purport to be extracts from the 'MS. Papers of the late Rev. Francis Purcell, of Drumcoolagh', a Catholic priest. The thirteenth and last tale on the collection, Billy Maloney's Taste of Love and Glory dates from 1850 and is not connected with Father Purcell. (From Wikipedia)...

(H/B) GREEN TEA
AND OTHER STRANGE TALES
Εκδότης: WILDSIDE PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0794-0007

Perhaps today, the world forgets what it owes the great 19th century Anglo-Irish writers. While LeFanu's introduction to Uncle Silas acknowledges the very un-Irish Sir Walter Scott, Joseph Thomas Sheridan LeFanu was born in Dublin in 1814 into a wealthy family of Huguenot origins. He was one of the most popular and influential authors of the Victorian era, and his vampire story Carmilla (1872) strongly influenced Bram Stoker's creation of Dracula. LeFanu wrote from the tradition that bred Jonathan Swift, Maria Edgeworth, Bram Stoker, Oscar...
