RESURRECTION (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - TOLSTOY...

Resurrection (1899) is the last of Tolstoy's major novels. It tells the story of a nobleman's attempt to redeem the suffering his youthful philandering inflicted on a peasant girl who ends up a prisoner in Siberia. Tolstoy's vision of redemption achieved through loving forgiveness, and his condemnation of violence, dominate the novel. An intimate, psychological tale of guilt, anger, and forgiveness, Resurrection is at the same time a panoramic description of social life in Russia at the end of ...

THE LADIES´ PARADISE (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) -...

The Ladies' Paradise (Au Bonheur des Dames) recounts the spectacular development of the modern department store in late nineteenth century Paris. The store is a symbol of capitalism, of the modern city, and of the bourgeois family; it is emblematic of consumer culture and the changes in sexual attitudes and class relations taking place at the end of the century. Octave Mouret, the store's owner-manager, masterfully exploits the desires of his female customers. In his private life as much as in ...

PRAETERITA (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - RUSKIN, J...

M. W. Turner, nature, politics, and travel. This is the first major new edition since 1908, including passages excised from the original printed editions.

THE ANTIQUARY (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - SCOTT,...

'It was early in a fine summer's day, near the end of the eighteenth century, when a young man, of genteel appearance, having occasion to go towards the north-east of Scotland, provided himself with a ticket in one of those public carriages which travel between Edinburgh and the Queensferry...' So begins Scott's personal favourite among his novels, in characteristically wry and urbane style, as a mysterious young man calling himself 'Lovel' travels idly but fatefully toward the Scottish seaside...

LA BETE HUMAINE (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - ZOLA...

Did possessing and killing amount to the same thing deep within the dark recesses of the human beast? La Bete humaine (1890), is one of Zola's most violent and explicit works. On one level a tale of murder, passion and possession, it is also a compassionate study of individuals derailed by atavistic forces beyond their control. Zola considered this his `most finely worked' novel, and in it he powerfully evokes life at the end of the Second Empire in France, where society seemed to be hurtling i...

ROB ROY (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - SCOTT, W.

For the most popular of his Scottish romances, published at the end of 1817, Scott drew on the legends and historical anecdotes about Rob Roy MacGregor he had collected in his youth.

Banished from his father's house, falling hopelessly in love with the spirited Diana Vernon, Frank becomes invol...

Dicky's journey takes him through a savag...

THE ALCHEMIST AND OTHER PLAYS (Oxford World´s Classics New E...

This edition brings together Jonson's four great comedies in one volume. Volpone, which was first performed in 1606, dramatizes the corrupting nature of greed in an exuberant satire set in contemporary Venice. The first production of Epicene marked the end of a year long closure of the theatres because of an epidemic of the plague in 1609; its comedy affirms the consolatory power of laughter at such a time. The Alchemist (1610) deploys the metaphors of alchemical transformation to emphasize the...

ON MURDER (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - DE QUINCEY...

'For if once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination' Thomas De Quincey's three essays 'On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts' centre on the notorious career of the murderer John Williams, who in 1811 brutally killed seven people in London's East End. De Quincey's response to Williams's attacks turns morality on its head, celebrating an...

Cubist Prague - Jan Boněk

Autor : Jan Boněk, It would be hard to find on the world’s cultural map a place where so many exceptional artists emerged at once as they did in Bohemia at the beginning of the 20th century.
