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.

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.

"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.
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.
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.
"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.

"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.

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.
