(P/B) TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

To the Lighthouse is the most autobiographical of Virginia Woolf's novels. It is based on her own early experiences, and while it touches on childhood and children's perceptions and desires, it is at its most trenchant when exploring adult relationships, marriage and the changing class-structure in the period spanning the Great War.

(P/B) A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

With an Introduction and Notes by Dr. Jacqueline Belanger, University of Cardiff. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man represents the transitional stage between the realism of Joyce's Dubliners and the symbolism of Ulysses, and is essential to the understanding of the later work. This novel is a highly autobiographical account of the adolescence of Stephen Dedalus, who reappears in Ulysses, and who comes to realize that before he can become a true artist, he must rid himself of the stultifying effects of the religion, politics and essen...

(P/B) THE YEARS AND BETWEEN THE ACTS
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

This volume brings together Virginia Woolf's last two novels, The Years (1937) which traces the lives of members of a dispersed middle-class family between 1880 and 1937, and Between the Acts (1941), an account of a village pageant in the summer preceding the Second World War which successfully interweaves comedy, satire and disturbing observation. Rewriting the traditional family saga and the pageant, these unsettling novels provide extraordinary critiques of Englishness and English identity while pursuing compelling existentialist and ps...

(P/B) THE WAVES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

'I am writing to a rhythm and not to a plot', Virginia Woolf stated of her eighth novel, The Waves. Widely regarded as one of her greatest and most original works, it conveys the rhythms of life in synchrony with the cycle of nature and the passage of time. Six children - Bernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny and Louis - meet in a garden close to the sea, their voices sounding over the constant echo of the waves that roll back and forth from the shore. The subsequent continuity of these six main characters, as they develop from childhood ...

(P/B) ADAM BEDE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

'Examine your words well, and you will find that even when you have no motive to be false, it is a very hard thing to say the exact truth, even about your immediate feelings...' Adam Bede (1859), George Eliot's first full-length novel, marked the emergence of an artist to rank with Scott and Dickens. Set in the English Midlands of farmers and village craftsmen at the turn of the eighteenth century, the book relates a story of seduction issuing in 'the inward suffering which is the worst form of Nemesis'. But it is also a rich and pioneeri...

(P/B) FINNEGANS WAKE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Finnegans Wake is the book of Here Comes Everybody and Anna Livia Plurabelle and their family - their book, but in a curious way the book of us all as well as all our books. Joyce's last great work, it is not comprised of many borrowed styles, like Ulysses, but, rather, formulated as one dense, tongue-twisting soundscape. This ‘language’ is based on English vocabulary and syntax but, at the same time, self-consciously designed to function as a pun machine with an astonishing capacity for resisting singularity of meaning. Announcing a ‘revo...

(P/B) DAISY MILLER AND OTHER STORIES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Daisy Miller is one of Henry James's most attractive heroines: she represents youth and frivolity. As a tourist in Italy, her American freedom and freshness of spirit come up against the corruption and hypocrisy of European manners. From its first publication, readers on both sides of the Atlantic have quarrelled about her, defending or attacking the liberties that Daisy takes and the conventions that she ignores. All three tales in this collection, Daisy Miller, An International Episode and Lady Barbarina, express James's most notable sub...

Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Mr Dombey is a man obsessed with his firm. His son is groomed from birth to take his place within it, despite his visionary eccentricity and declining health. But Dombey also has a daughter, whose unfailing love for her father goes unreturned. 'Girls' said Mr Dombey, 'have nothing to do with Dombey and Son'. When Walter Gay, a young clerk in her father's office, rescues her from a bewildering experience in the streets of London, his unforgettable friends believe he is well on his way to receiving her hand in marriage and inheriting the com...

(P/B) BILLY BUDD AND OTHER STORIES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Εξαντλημένο στον εκδότη, δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα παραγγελίας.

Melville's short stories are masterpieces. The best are to be appreciated on more than one level and those presented here are rich with symbolism and spiritual depth. Set in 1797, Billy Budd, Foretopman exploits the tension of this period during the war between England and France to create a tale of satanic treachery, tragedy and great pathos that explores human relationships and the inherently ambiguous nature of man-made justice. Tales such as Bartleby, Benito Cereno, The Lightning Rod Man, The Tartarus of Maids or I and My Chimney, show...

(P/B) SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Young women who have no economic or political power must attend to the serious business of contriving material security'. Jane Austen's sardonic humour lays bare the stratagems, the hypocrisy and the poignancy inherent in the struggle of two very different sisters to achieve respectability. Sense and Sensibility is a delightful comedy of manners in which the sisters Elinor and Marianne represent these two qualities. Elinor's character is one of Augustan detachment, while Marianne, a fervent disciple of the Romantic Age, learns to curb her ...

(P/B) MRS DALLOWAY
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Virginia Woolf's singular technique in Mrs Dalloway heralds a break with the traditional novel form and reflects a genuine humanity and a concern with the experiences that both enrich and stultify existence. Society hostess, Clarissa Dalloway is giving a party. Her thoughts and sensations on that one day, and the interior monologues of others whose lives are interwoven with hers gradually reveal the characters of the central protagonists. Clarissa's life is touched by tragedy as the events in her day run parallel to those of Septimus Warr...

(P/B) JUDE THE OBSCURE
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Jude Fawley is a rural stonemason with intellectual aspirations. Frustrated by poverty and the indifference of the academic institutions at the University of Ghristminster, his only chance of fulfilment seems to lie in his relationship with his unconventional, free-thinking cousin, Sue Bridehead. But life as social outcasts proves undermining, and when tragedy occurs, Sue has no resilience and Jude is left in despair. Hardy's portrait of Jude, the idealist and dreamer who is a prisoner of his own physical nature, is one of the most hauntin...

Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

In this notorious late novel, Lawrence's pagan imaginings burgeon. Kate Leslie, an Irish widow touring Mexico, becomes gradually involved with a charismatic leader, and she enters a sexual relationship with his dark henchman. As the two men conspire to revive the old Aztec religion and seize power, Kate is increasingly implicated in their 'blood consciousness', phallic propaganda and right-wing violence.

(P/B) PERSUASION
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

What does persuasion mean - a firm belief, or the action of persuading someone to think something else? Anne Elliot is one of Austen's quietest heroines, but also one of the strongest and the most open to change. She lives at the time of the Napoleonic wars, a time of accident, adventure, the making of new fortunes and alliances. A woman of no importance, she manoeuvres in her restricted circumstances as her long-time love Captain Wentworth did in the wars. Even though she is nearly thirty, well past the sell-by bloom of youth, Austen make...

(P/B) EMMA
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Jane Austen teased readers with the idea of a 'heroine whom no one but myself will much like', but Emma is irresistible. 'Handsome, clever, and rich', Emma is also an 'imaginist', 'on fire with speculation and foresight'. She sees the signs of romance all around her, but thinks she will never be married. Her matchmaking maps out relationships that Jane Austen ironically tweaks into a clearer perspective. Judgement and imagination are matched in games the reader too can enjoy, and the end is a triumph of understanding.(from the publisher)...

(P/B) MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Much Ado About Nothing has long been celebrated as one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies. The central relationship, between Benedick and Beatrice, is wittily combative until love prevails. Broader comedy is provided by Dogberry, Verges and the watchmen. The drama ranges between the destructively sinister and the lyrically romantic, giving the whole a complex and sometimes problematic character. (from the publisher)...

(P/B) ULYSSES
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

James Joyce's astonishing masterpiece, Ulysses, tells of the diverse events which befall Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus in Dublin on 16 June 1904, during which Bloom's voluptuous wife, Molly, commits adultery. Initially deemed obscene in England and the USA, this richly-allusive novel, revolutionary in its Modernistic experimentalism, was hailed as a work of genius by W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot and Ernest Hemingway. Scandalously frank, wittily erudite, mercurially eloquent, resourcefully comic and generously humane, Ulysses offers the rea...

(P/B) CALL OF THE WILD AND WHITE FANG

With an Introduction and Notes by Lionel Kelly, University of Reading. The Call of the Wild (1903) and White Fang (1906) are world famous animal stories. Set in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890s, The Call of the Wild is about Buck, the magnificent cross-bred offspring of a St Bernard and a Scottish Collie.

(P/B) THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP
Εκδότης: WORDSWORTH
Άμεσα διαθέσιμο. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-4 εργάσιμες μέρες.

The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-41), with its combination of the sentimental, the grotesque and the socially concerned, and its story of pursuit and courage, which sets the downtrodden and the plucky against the malevolent and the villainous, was an immediate popular success. Little Nell quickly became one of Dickens' most celebrated characters, who so captured the imagination of his readers that while the novel was being serialised, many of them wrote to him about her fate.
