    Waiting For Godot

    Beckett, Samuel
    Kiadó: Faber and Faber Ltd
    From an inauspicious beginning at the tiny Left Bank Theatre de Babylone in 1953, followed by bewilderment among American and British audiences, Waiting for Godot has become of the most important and enigmatic plays of the past fifty years and acornerstone of twentieth-century drama.The story revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone-or something-named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree, inhabiting a drama spun of their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, andnonsense, which has been interpreted as mankind's inexhaustible search for meaning.

  • The Adventures of Pinocchio (Owc) * 2009

    The Adventures of Pinocchio (Owc) * 2009

    Collodi,Carlo
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The story of the wooden puppet who learns goodness and becomes a real boy is famous the world over, and has been familiar in English for over a century. From the moment Joseph the carpenter carves a puppet that can walk and talk, this wildly inventivefantasy takes Pinocchio through countless adventures, in the course of which his nose grows whenever he tells a lie, he is turned into a donkey, and is swallowed by a dogfish, before he gains real happiness.This new translation does full justice to the vibrancy and wit of Collodi's original. Far more sophisticated, funny, and hard-hitting than the many abridged versions (and the sentimentalized film) of the story would suggest, Ann Lawson Lucas'stranslation captures the complexity of Collodi's word-play, slapstick humour, and immediacy of dialogue. An adult reader will recognize social and political satire, and the invaluable introduction and notes illuminate the cultural traditions on whichCollodi drew.

  • The Divine Comedy (Owc)*

    The Divine Comedy (Owc)*

    Dante
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Described variously as the greatest poem of the European Middle Ages and, because of the author's evangelical purpose, the `fifth Gospel', the Divine Comedy is central to the culture of the west. The poem is a spiritual autobiography in the form of ajourney - the poet travels from the dark circles of the Inferno, up the mountain of Purgatory, where Virgil, his guide leaves him to encounter Beatrice in the Earthly Paradise. Dante conceived the poem as the new epic of Christendom, and he creates aworld in which reason and faith have transformed moral and social chaos into order.Charles Sisson's blank verse translation is remarkable for its lucidity and vigour, and the Introduction, diagrams, maps, and notes by David Higgins provide the reader with invaluable guidance.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • South Sea Tales (Owc) * 2009

    South Sea Tales (Owc) * 2009

    Stevenson,Robert Louis
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The only volume of Stevenson's Pacific storiesThe literary world was shocked when in 1889, at the height of his career, Robert Louis Stevenson announced his intention to settle permanently on the Pacific island of Samoa. His readers were equally shocked when he began to use the subject materialoffered by his new environment, not to promote a romance of empire, but to produce some of the most ironic and critical treatments of imperialism in nineteenth-century fiction.In these stories, as in his work generally, Stevenson shows himself to be a virtuoso of narrative styles: his Pacific fiction includes the domestic realism of `The Beach at Falesé, the folktale plots of `The Bottle Imp' and `The Isle of Voices', and themodernist blending of naturalism and symbolism in The Ebb-Tide. But beyond their generic diversity the stories are linked by their concern with representing the multiracial society of which their author had become a member. In this collection - the firstto bring together all his shorter Pacific fiction in one volume - Stevenson emerges as a witness both to the cross- cultural encounters of nineteenth-century imperialism and to the creation of the global culture which characterizes the post-colonialworld.

  • Pride and Prejudice (Owc) *

    Pride and Prejudice (Owc) *

    Austen, Jane
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'This perfect indifference, and your pointed dislike, make it so delightfully absurd!' Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of theworld and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and menide down. Pride encounters prejudice, upward-mobility confronts social disdain,and quick-wittedness challenges sagacity, as misconceptions and hasty judgements lead to heartache and scandal, but eventually to true understanding, self-knowledge, and love. In this supremely satisfying story, Jane Austen balances comedy withseriousness, and witty observation with profound insight. If Elizabeth Bennet returns again and again to her letter from Mr Darcy, readers of the novel are drawn even more irresistibly by its captivating wisdom.

  • The Man Who Disappeared (Owc) * 2012

    The Man Who Disappeared (Owc) * 2012

    Kafka,Franz
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *A new translation of Kafka's first novel, a biting and blackly humorous satire on a richly imagined America which gives fresh meaning to the term 'Kafkaesque'.*Ritchie Robertson's translation is both faithful to Kafka's style and highly readable.*The only edition to provide a full introduction and explanatory notes. The introduction explains why Kafka set the novel in America, a country he had never visited, what his sources of information were, how he distorts his fictional America forsatirical purposes, and it brings out the novel's humour. The notes incorporate the most recent Kafka scholarship to elucidate difficult parts of the text.*A Biographical Preface provides an account of Kafka's life against the context of his time.*Up-to-date bibliography and chronology of the author.'...behind them all was New York, looking at Karl with the hundred thousand windows of its skyscrapers'Entering New York harbour, the young immigrant Karl Rossmann sees the Statue of Liberty, 'her arm with the sword stretched upward'. This forbidding introduction sets the tone for Kafka's narrative about an innocent European astray in an ultra-modernAmerica that is both a fantasy and an object of social satire. Expelled by his family after seduction by a maidservant, Karl finds in America a series of surrogate families, but he continues to get into undeserved trouble and is forced to move on onceagain. Along the way Karl encounters extremes of wealth and poverty, experiences the cruelty of the American work ethic, and has glimpses of the criminal underworld, without losing the basic goodness and resourcefulness that enable him to survive thehazards of the New World.Full of incident, and blackly humorous, Kafka's first novel portrays American civilization with horrified fascination. This edition retains Kafka's distinctive style in a sensitive and natural new translation, together with a penetrating introduction andnotes.

  • The Flowers of Evil (Owc) * 2008

    The Flowers of Evil (Owc) * 2008

    Baudelaire,Charles
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The Flowers of Evil, which T. S. Eliot called the greatest example of modern poetry in any language, shocked the literary world of nineteenth century France with its outspoken portrayal of lesbian love, its linking sexuality and death, its unremittingirony, and its unflinching celebration of the seamy side of urban life. The volume was seized by the police, and Baudelaire and his published were put on trial for offence to public decency. Six offending poems were banned, in a conviction that was notoverturned until 1949.This bold new translation, which restores the banned poems to their original places and reveals the full richness and variety of the collection, makes available to English speakers a powerful and original version of the world. Jonathan Culler'sIntroduction outlines this vision, stressing that Baudelaire is more than just the poet of the modern city. Originally to be called `The Lesbians', The Flowers of Evil contains the most extraordinary body of love poetry. The poems also pose the questionof the role of evil in our lives, of whether there are not external forces working to frustrate human plans and to enlist men and women on appalling or stultifying scenarios not of their own making.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth ofother valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.Readership: General readers interested in Baudelaire, French poetry and 19th-century French culture. Students of Baudelaire, French literature.

    Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (Owc) * 2009

    Carroll Lewis
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    A new edition of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice stories by one of the foremost children's literature experts, Peter Hunt, and featuring Tenniel's much-loved illustrations. Includes the 'Wasp in a Wig' episode, removed from the proofs of Through the Looking-Glass. Takes account of the most recent research and critical opinion. The Introduction places the book in the context of children's literature and general literature, and reviews interpretations of them, and the various views of Dodgson's relationship to children and childhood. Extensive explanatory notes give information on Dodgson's political, social, intellectual, and personal allusions and sources. Includes an extensive bibliography and a chronology of Dodgson's life and times.New to this edition*Engaging and comprehensive introduction by Peter Hunt, a leading authority on children's literature.*Up-to-date bibliography.*Extensive annotation, drawing on the latest scholarship.*Appendix containg 'The Wasp in a Wig', an episode in Through the Looking-Glass that was withdrawn at proof stage.*Newly scanned illustrations and reset text to give improved appearance.'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat. 'We're all mad here.'The 'Alice' books are two of the most translated, most quoted, and best-known books in the world, but what exactly are they? Apparently delightful, innocent fantasies for children, they are also complex textures of mathematical, linguistic, andphilosophical jokes. Alice's encounters with the White Rabbit, the Cheshire-Cat, the King and Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and many other extraordinary characters have made them masterpieces of carefree nonsense, yet theyalso appeal to adults on a quite different level. Layers of satire, allusion, and symbolism about Victorian culture and politics, as well as revelations about the intricate subconscious problems of their author, add to their fascination and make themimpossible to classify.This new edition explores the phenomenal range of reference, and the paradoxical appeal of two of the most inventive books in world literature. It also includes an episode removed by Carroll from the proofs of Through the Looking-Glass, called 'The Waspin a Wig'.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
