`There, as if it had that moment sprung out of the earth or dropped form the heaven - stood the figure of a solitary Woman, dressed from head to foot in white garments` Walter Hartright`s contemplation`s on the lovely, moonlit road are rudely broken by the nameless and distressed woman in white. The encounter is to change his life, for she is at the centre of villainous machinations which are profoundly to effect him - and those he loves. Through carefully constructed characterization, intricate plottingand masterly skill in concealing and revealing secrets, Wilkie Collins has created one of the greatest mystery thrillers in the English language.
Unusually for Dickens, "Hard Times" is set, not in London, but in the imaginary mid-Victorian Northern industrial town of Coketown with its blackened factories, downtrodden workers and polluted environment. This is the soulless domain of the strict utilitarian Thomas Gradgrind and the heartless factory owner Josiah Bounderby. However, human joy is not excluded thanks to 'Mr Sleary's Horse-Riding' circus, a gin-soaked and hilarious troupe of open-hearted and affectionate people who act as an antidote to all the drudgery and misery endured by the ordinary citizens of Coketown. Macaulay attacked "Hard Times" for its 'sullen socialism', but 20th-century critics such as George Bernard Shaw and F.R.Leavis have praised this book in the highest terms, while readers the world over have found inspiration and enjoyment from what is both Dickens` shortest completed novel and also one of his important statements on Victorian society.

Jules Verne`s third great "science fiction" novel describes the discovery and exploration of a secret tunnel which leads through a volcano to the centre of the Earth. The leader of the expedition is an archetypal comic and eccentric boffin, and together with his ward, his nephew Axel (who is in love with the ward), and an estimable Icelandic guide, the journey is made. Journey to the Centre of the Earth achieved instant and enduring popularity on publication in 1874. Together with "Around the World in Eighty Days", "Five Weeks in a Balloon" and "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", (all available as Wordsworth Classics), it established Verne as an author of high adventure who filled his stories with a wealth of technical detail, and the energy and freshness of an extraordinary, inventive imagination.

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.
"Othello" has long been recognised as one of the most powerful of Shakespeare`s tragedies. This is an intense drama of love, deception, jealousy and destruction. Desdemona`s love for Othello, the Moor, transcends racial prejudice; but the envious lago conspires to devastate their lives. In its vivid rendering of racism, sexism, contested identities, and the savagery lurking within civilisation, "Othello" is arguably the most topical and accessible tragedy from Shakespeare`s major phase as a dramatist. Productions on stage and screen regularly renew its power to engross, impress and trouble the imagination. Формат: 12,5 см х 19,5 см.
"Black Beauty" had a fine, soft black coat, one white foot and silver star on his forehead. This story of a horse's adventures, disappointments and joys is perhaps the most famous animal story of all time. Tens of millions of copies have been sold, and it remains as popular now as when it was first published over a century ago.
"Confessions of an English Opium-Eater" (1821) relates Thomas De Quincey's early life and experiences of opium addiction at a time when that drug was widely used for the relief of pain, and before its addictive qualities were properly understood. It is awork which encompasses amusement with nightmare as the author experiences in turn the marvels of opium-induced dreams and the equally vivid nightmares which are their counterpoint.

Generally regarded as the pre-eminent work of Conrad's shorter fiction, Heart of Darkness is a chilling tale of horror which, as the author intended, is capable of many interpretations. Set in the Congo during the period of rapid colonial expansion in the nineteenth century, the story deals with the highly disturbing effects of economic, social and political exploitation on European and African societies and the cataclysmic behaviour this induced in some individuals. The other two stories in this book - Youth and The End of the Tether - concern the sea and those who sail upon it, a genre in which Conrad reigns supreme.
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 company. It is to be a very different type of story. Dombey and Son moved grown men to tears (Thackeray despaired of 'writing against such power as this'), but its rich, comic characters and their joyful explosions of language draw laughter with equally unerring magic.

`Fathers and Sons` is Turgenev`s most acclaimed and influential work, and is a story of universal significance through its depiction of contemporary Russian life. The novel concentrates on the conflict between generations, with the nihilist Bazarov representing the revolt of the young, free-thinking intellectuals who strive for reality rather than negativity, as he embodies the spirit of revolution. Pavel Petrovich speaks for the older generation which accepts the need for gradual reform, up to a point. The novel caused a bitter furore after its publication in 1862, which, a year later, drove Turgenev from Russia.

It is 1757. Across north-eastern America the armies of Britain and Prance struggle for ascendancy. Their conflict, however, overlays older struggles between nations of native Americans for possession of the same lands and between the native peoples and white colonisers. Through these layers of conflict Cooper threads a thrilling narrative, in which Cora and Alice Munro, daughters of a British commander on the front line of the colonial war, attempt to join their father. Thwarted by Magua, the sinister 'Indian runner', they find help in the persons of Hawk-eye, the white woodsman, and his companions, the Mohican Chingachgook and Uncas, his son, the last of his tribe. Cooper's novel is full of vivid incident - pursuits through wild terrain, skirmishes, treachery and brutality - but reflects also on the interaction between the colonisers and the native peoples. Hawk-eye's moral code is dictated neither by white nor by native notions of honour and self-interest, and through him...
The Shadows of Sherlock Holmes is a fascinating collection of stories featuring detectives, criminal agents and debonair crooks from the golden age of crime fiction: a time when Sherlock Holmes was ensconced in his rooms at 221 В Baker Street and London was permanently wreathed in a sinister fog. These gripping tales of mystery, suspense and clever puzzles are wonderfully entertaining and in them you will meet The Crime Doctor, Professor Augustus S.F.X.Van Dusen - The Thinking Machine, Max Carrados - the incredible blind detective, the repulsive but brilliant Skin o' My Teeth, and the natty, ingenious French sleuth Eugene Valmont. On the other side of the law, there are gentlemen crooks Raffles and Simon Cam - the Prince of Swindlers. The stories include: The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allan Рое, The Stolen Cigar Case (a parody of Sherlock Holmes) by Bret Harte, The Swedish Match by Anton Chekhov, Nine Points of the Law by E.W. Hornung, The Ghost at Massingham Mansions by Ernest Bramah...
`Then vision of an enormous town presented itself, of a monstrous town... a cruel devourer of the world's light. There was room enough there to place any story, depth enough for tiny passion, variety enough there for any setting, darkness enough to bury five millions of lives.` Conrad's 'monstrous town' is London, and his story of espionage and counter-espionage, anarchists and embassies, is a detective story that becomes the story of Winnie Verloc's tenacity in maintaining her devotion to her peculiar and simple-minded brother, Stevie, as they pursue their very ordinary lives above a rather dubious shop in the back streets of Soho. However, far from offering any sentimental picture, `The Secret Agent` is Conrad's funniest novel. Its savagely witty picture of human absurdity and misunderstanding is written in an ironic style that provokes laughter and unease at the same time, and that continues to provide one of the most disturbing visions of aspiration and futility in twentieth...
