Based on Charlotte Bronte's personal experience as a teacher in Brussels, Villette is a moving tale of repressed feelings and subjection to cruel circumstance and position, borne with heroic fortitude. Rising above the frustrations of confinement within a rigid social order, it is also a story of a woman's right to love and be loved.
Transplanted to Europe from her native America, Isabel Archer has candour, beauty, intelligence, an independent spirit and a marked enthusiasm for life. An unexpected inheritance apparently gives her freedom, but despite all her natural advantages she makes one disastrous error of judgement and the result is genuinely tragic. Her tale, told with James' inimitable poise, is of the widest relevance. Издание на английском языке.

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 considered to be F.Scott Fitzgerald's finest novel, "The Great Gatsby" is a consummate summary of the "roaring twenties" and a devastating expose of the "Jazz Age". Through the narration of Nick Carraway, the reader is taken into the superficially glittering world of the mansions which lined the Long Island shore of the American seaboard in the 1920s, to encounter Nick's cousin Daisy, her brash but wealthy husband Tom Buchanan, Jay Gatsby and the dark mystery which surrounds him. "The Great Gatsby" is an undisputed classic of American literature from the period following the First World War and is one of the great novels of the twentieth century. Издание на английском языке.
Unlike most people Matt Beckford is actually looking forward to turning thirty. After struggling through most of his twenties he thinks his career, finances and love life are finally sorted. But when he splits up with his girlfriend, he realises that life has different plans for him. Unable to cope with his future falling apart Matt temporarily moves back to his parents. During his enforced exodus only his old school mates can keep him sane. Friends he hasn't seen since he was nineteen. Back together after a decade apart. But things will never be the same for any of them because when you’re turning thirty nothing’s as simple as it used to be.
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.

`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.

The science fiction stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stand alongside those of Jules Verne and H.G.Wells. The protagonist, the "cave-man in a lounge suit", is the maddening, irascible and fascinating Professor George Edward Challenger. Thestories range from The Lost World, a sort of "Jurassic Park", high above the Amazon rain-forest, to the ecologically significant When the World Screamed. Other fine examples of Doyle`s imagination at its best are The Land of Mist andThe Disintegration Machine. This collection is a must for all readers who love science fiction and for those who are interested in the early development of the genre. Издание на английском языке.
"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.
Romeo and Juliet is the world's most famous drama of tragic young love. Defying the feud which divides their families, Romeo and Juliet enjoy the fleeting rapture of courtship, marriage and sexual fulfilment; but a combination of old animosities and new coincidences brings them to suicidal deaths. This play offers a rich mixture of romantic lyricism, bawdy comedy, intimate harmony and sudden violence. Long successful in the theatre, it has also generated numerous operas, ballets and films; and these have helped to make Romeo and Juliet perennially topical.

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.
