  • Satires and Epistles (Owc) *

    Satires and Epistles (Owc) *

    Horace
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Translated by John Davie and with introduction and notes by Robert Cowan A new translation of Horace's satires and epistles that does full justice to the caustic, ribald style of the satires, together with an up-to-date critical introduction and notes. John Davie's prose translation perfectly captures the lively, scurrilous, and frequently hilarious style of the satires, and the warm and engaging persona of the more meditative epistles. Includes the important Ars poetica, the 'art of poetry', Horace's treatise on poetics in the form of advice to an aspiring writer, particularly of epic and drama. Robert Cowan's introduction and notes take account of the latest scholarship, and contextualize Horace's poems within the development of Roman satire and the themes of philosophy, morality, sex and gender, literary criticism, politics and patronage. Horace's works were hugely influential from the Renaissance to the present, on writers from Ben Jonson and Alexander Pope to W.H. Auden and Robert Frost.Gluttony, lust, and hypocrisy are just a few of the targets of Horace's Satires. Writing in the 30s BC, Horace exposes the vices and follies of his Roman contemporaries, while still finding time to reflect on how to write good satire and along the wayrevealing his own persona to be as flawed and bigoted as the people he attacks. Alongside famous episodes such as the fable of the town mouse and the country mouse, the explosive fart of Priapus, and the grotesque dinner party given by the nouveau-richeNasidienus, these poems are stuffed full of comic vignettes, moral insights, and Horace's pervasive humanity. They influenced not only Persius and Juvenal but the long tradition of English satire, from Ben Jonson to W. H. Auden. These new prosetranslations by John Davie perfectly capture the ribald style of the original.In the Epistles, Horace uses the form of letters to his friends, acquaintances, foremen, and even the emperor to explore questions of philosophy and how to live a good life

  • Barnaby Rudge (Owc) * 2008

    Barnaby Rudge (Owc) * 2008

    Dickens,Charles
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'What dark history is this?'This is the question that hangs over Dickens's brooding novel of mayhem and murder in the eighteenth century. Set in London at the time of the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots, Barnaby Rudge tells a story of individuals caught up in the mindless violence ofthe mob. Lord George Gordon's dangerous appeal to old religious prejudices is interwoven with the murder mystery surrounding the father of the simple-minded Barnaby. The discovery of the murderer and his involvement in the riots put Barnaby's life injeopardy. Culminating in the terrifying destruction of Newgate prison by the rampaging hordes, the descriptions of the riots are among Dickens's most powerful.Written at a time of social unrest in Victorian Britain, Barnaby Rudge explores the relationship between repression and liberation in private and public life. It looks forward to the dark complexities of Dickens's later novels, whose characters also seekrefuge from a chaotic and unstable world.

  • The Tempest (Owc) * 2008

    The Tempest (Owc) * 2008

    Shakespeare, William
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Performed variously as escapist fantasy, celebratory fiction, and political allegory, The Tempest is one of the plays in which Shakespeare's genius as a poetic dramatist found its fullest expression. Significantly, it was placed first when published inthe First Folio of 1623, and is now generally seen as the playwright's most penetrating statement about his art.Stephen Orgel's wide-ranging introduction examines changing attitudes to The Tempest, and reassesses the evidence behind the various readings. He focuses on key characters and their roles and relationships, as well as on the dramatic, historical, andpolitical context, finding the play to be both more open and more historically determined than traditional views have allowed.

    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    - The Maudes' translation of Tolstoy's epic masterpiece has long been considered the best English version, and now for the first time it has been revised to bring it fully into line with modern approaches to the text. French passages are restored,Anglicization of Russian names removed, and outmoded expressions updated.- A new introduction by Any Mandelker considers the novel's literary and historical context, the nature of the work and Tolstoy's artistic and philosophical aims.- New, expanded notes provide historical background and identifications, as well as insight into Russian life and society.- Includes lists of historical characters and the fictional families, a chronology of Tolstoy and of historical events in the novel, five maps, and Tolstoy's essay 'Some Words about War and Peace' in an Appendix.New to this edition- Sensitively revised translation that restores the French passages (translated in footnotes), removes the Anglicization of Russian names, and updates outmoded expressions.- New introduction by Amy Mandelker that considers the novel's literary and historical context, the nature of the work and Tolstoy's artistic and philosophical aims.- New list of historical characters to complement the existing list of fictional characters.- Fully revised and expanded notes.'If life could write, it would write like Tolstoy.' Isaac BabelTolstoy's epic masterpiece intertwines the lives of private and public individuals during the time of the Napoleonic wars and the French invasion of Russia. The fortunes of the Rostovs and the Bolkonskys, of Pierre, Natasha, and Andrei, are intimatelyconnected with the national history that is played out in parallel with their lives. Balls and soirées alternate with councils of war and the machinations of statesmen and generals, scenes of violent battles with everyday human passions in a work whoseextraordinary imaginative power has never been surpassed. The prodigious cast of characters, both great and small, seem to act and move as if connected by threads of destiny as the novel relentlessly questions ideas of free will, fate, and providence.Yet Tolstoy's portrayal of marital relations and scenes of domesticity is as truthful and poignant as the grand themes that underlie them.In this revised and updated version of the definitive and highly acclaimed Maude translation, Tolstoy's genius and the power of his prose are made newly available to the contemporary reader.

  • The Castle of Otranto - A Gothic Story (Owc) * 2014

    The Castle of Otranto (Owc) * 2014

    Walpole, Horace
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *A new edition of one of the earliest and most influential Gothic novels, the best introduction to the work that inaugurated a literary genre.*Nick Groom's wide-ranging introduction explores the novel's Gothic context in the cultural movement that affected political and religious thinking before Walpole developed it as a literary style, helping to explain the novel's impact on contemporaries,its importance, and Walpole's pioneering innovations.*Up-to-date bibliography and notes, drawing on the latest scholarship.*Useful chronology of Walpole and the Gothic context.*Appendix includes extracts from contemporary non-fiction by Walpole and Richard Hurd demonstrating the domestication of medieval Gothic for eighteenth-century readers that fed into The Castle of Otranto.New to this edition*New introduction by Nick Groom.*Up-to-date bibliography.*Fuller chronology of Walpole and seventeenth/eighteenth century Gothic.*New notes.*An appendix with extracts from contemporary non-fiction relating to the domestication of medieval Gothic for eighteenth-century readers.*Reset text.'Look, my lord! See heaven itself declares against your impious intentions!'The Castle of Otranto (1764) is the first supernatural English novel and one of the most influential works of Gothic fiction. It inaugurated a literary genre that will be forever associated with the effects that Walpole pioneered. Professing to be atranslation of a mysterious Italian tale from the darkest Middle Ages, the novel tells of Manfred, prince of Otranto, whose fear of an ancient prophecy sets him on a course of destruction. After the grotesque death of his only son, Conrad, on his weddingday, Manfred determines to marry the bride-to-be. The virgin Isabella flees through a castle riddled with secret passages. Chilling coincidences, ghostly visitations, arcane revelations, and violent combat combine in a heady mix that terrified thenovel's first readers.In this new edition Nick Groom examines the reasons for its extraordinary impact and the Gothic culture from which it sprang. The Castle of Otranto was a game-changer, and Walpole the writer who paved the way for modern horror exponents.

  • Jacob's Room (Owc) * 2008

    Jacob's Room (Owc) * 2008

    Woolf, Virginia
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Jacob's Room is Virginia Woolf's first truly experimental novel. It is a portrait of a young man, who is both representative and victim of the social values which led Edwardian society into war. Jacob's life is traced from the time he is a small boyplaying on the beach, through his years in Cambridge, then in artistic London, and finally making a trip to Greece, but this is no orthodox Bildungsroman. Jacob is presented in glimpses, in fragments, as Woolf breaks down traditional ways of representingcharacter and experience.The novel's composition coincided with the consolidation of Woolf's interest in feminism, and she criticizes the privileged thoughtless smugness of patriarchy, `the other side', `the men in clubs and Cabinets'. Her stylistic innovations are consciousattempts to realize and develop women's writing and the novel dramatizes her interest in the ways both language and social environments shape differently the lives of men and women.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • Selected Poetry - Lord Byron (Owc) * 2009

    Selected Poetry - Lord Byron (Owc) * 2009

    Byron
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Byron was a legend in his own lifetime and the dominant influence on the Romantic movement.The most European of the English writers in an age of revolution, Byron was deeply involved in contemporary events, and a passionate supporter of the struggle for Greek independence. Describing himself as `born for opposition', his work was largelydirected against what he called the `cant political, cant poetical, and cant moral' of the English and European worlds. He was rocketed to fame by the publication of Childe Harold in 1812, and lionized by society until his departure from England amid awhirlpool of private gossip and newspaper scandal in 1816. His is, in every sense, a poetry of experience, and a Romantic emphasis on the personality of the poet is the hallmark of all his verse. Relishing humour and irony, daring and flamboyant,sardonic yet idealistic, his work encompasses a sweeping range of topics, subjects, and models, embracing the most traditional and the most experimental poetic forms.This selection of the poetical works, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, includes such masterpieces as The Corsair, Manfred, Bebbo, and Don Juan. There are many other less familiar works and shorter lyrics, and Jerome J. McGann'sintroduction and notes give fascinating insight into Byron's world.

    Milton John
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *Well established text taken from the same editors edition of Milton's Major Works which was previously published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series*Excellent new introduction contextualizes Milton and his poem and discusses the poem's structure, language, God vs Satan and a summary of critical responses to the poem since its publication*Since the poem needs frequent annotation the notes are set at the foot of the page instead of at the back of the book which makes referring to them very much easier*Modernized text*Orgel and Goldberg are well known and widely respected scholars of long standing'Of man's first disobedience, and the fruitOf that forbidden tree, whose mortal tasteBrought death into the world...Sing heavenly muse'From almost the moment of its first publication in 1667, Paradise Lost was considered a classic. It is difficult now to appreciate both how audacious an undertaking it represents, and how astonishing its immediate and continued success was. Over thecourse of twelve books Milton wrote an epic poem that would 'justify the ways of God to men', a mission that required a complex drama whose source is both historical and deeply personal. The struggle for ascendancy between God and Satan is played outacross hell, heaven, and earth but the consequences of the Fall are all too humanly tragic - pride, ambition, and aspiration the motivating forces. In this new edition derived from their acclaimed Oxford Authors text, Stephen Orgel and Jonathan Goldbergdiscuss the complexity of Milton's poem in a new introduction, and on-page notes explain its language and allusions.

    At the centre of Hide and Seek (1854) a secret waits to be revealed. Why should the apparently respectable painter Valentine Blyth refuse to account for the presence in his household of the beautiful girl known as Madonna? It is not until his youngfriend Zack Thorpe, who is in rebellion against his repressive father, gets into bad company and meets a mysterious stranger that the secret of Madonna can be unravelled.Wilkie Collins's third novel, dedicated to his life-long friend Dickens, is a story in which excitement is combined with charm and humour.

    Turgenev's masterpiece about the conflict between generations is as fresh, outspoken, and exciting today as it was in when it was first published in 1862. The controversial portrait of Bazarov, the energetic, cynical, and self-assured `nihilist' whorepudiates the romanticism of his elders, shook Russian society. Indeed the image of humanity liberated by science from age-old conformities and prejudices is one that can threaten establishments of any political or religious persuasion, and isespecially potent in the modern era.This new translation, specially commissioned for the World's Classics, is the first to draw on Turgenev's working manuscript, which only came to light in 1988.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

    The Kill (Owc) * 2010

    Zola, Emile
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *The first translation into English since 1895*The Kill is the second volume in Zola's great cycle of twenty novels, Les Rougon-Macquart, and the first to establish Paris as the centre of Zola's narrative world*Regarded as Zola's finest novel before L'Assommoir and one of the most important novels about nineteenth-century Paris and its rebuilding under Baron Haussmann*Superb translation by Brian Nelson perfectly captures the energy of the original'It was the time when the rush for spoils filled a corner of the forest with the yelping of hounds, the cracking of whips, the flaring of torches. The appetites let loose were satisfied at last, shamelessly, amid the sound of crumbling neighbourhoods andfortunes made in six months. The city had become an orgy of gold and women.'The Kill (La Curée) is the second volume in Zola's great cycle of twenty novels, Les Rougon-Macquart, and the first to establish Paris - the capital of modernity - as the centre of Zola's narrative world. Conceived as a representation of theuncontrollable 'appetites' unleashed by the Second Empire (1852-70) and the transformation of the city by Baron Haussmann, the novel combines into a single, powerful vision the twin themes of lust for money and lust for pleasure. The all-pervadingpromiscuity of the new Paris is reflected in the dissolute and frenetic lives of an unscrupulous property speculator, Saccard, his neurotic wife Renée, and her dandified lover, Saccard's son Maxime.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • Boris Godunov and Other Dramatic Works (Owc) * 2010

    Boris Godunov and Other Dramatic Works (Owc) * 2010

    Pushkin
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    This is the only edition to combine Pushkin's most famous play, Boris Godunov with The Little Tragedies, Rusalka and A Scene from Faust and is the most comprehensive edition of Pushkin's dramatic works. James E. Falen's translations of Pushkin are widely admired and his OWC translation of Eugene Onegin is considered the best. Falen's verse translations are accompanied by a first-rate introduction from Caryl Emerson, an equally distinguished Russianist, which emphasizes the cosmopolitan nature of Pushkin's drama, the position of Russian culture on the European stage,together with excellent analyses of the individual works in the volume. The edition displays all aspects of Pushkin's dramatic genius: historical, metaphysical, and folklorist. Musorgsky's opera, based on Boris Godunov, is frequently performed.'The people are silent'So ends Pushkin's great historical drama Boris Godunov, in which Boris's reign as Tsar witnesses civil strife and intrigue, brutality and misery. Its legacy is an uncertain future for the new Tsar whose inauguration is met with devastating silence by thepeople. Pushkin's dramatic work displays a scintillating variety of forms, from the historical to the metaphysical and folkloric. After Boris Godunov, they evolved into Pushkin's own unique, condensed transformations of Western European themes andtraditions. The fearful amorality of A Scene from Faust is followed by the four Little Tragedies which confront greed, envy, lust, and blasphemy , while Rusalka is a tragedy of a different kind - a lyric fairytale of despair and transformation.James E. Falen's verse translations of Pushkin's dramas are here accompanied by an Introduction by Caryl Emerson on Russia's most cosmopolitan playwright.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

    Wilde, Oscar
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *A new edition that draws on the scholarship of the Oxford English Texts edition for both text and editorial apparatus.*Reproduces the critically established 1891 text from the OET edition.*Joseph Bristow's introduction draws on the wealth of scholarship of the last 15 years to provide the most up-to-date exploration of the novel's composition, Wilde's revisions for the 1891 edition, critical approaches, and the reputation of the novelsince publication.*Textual notes will show important variants.*Full explanatory notes identify Wilde's sources.*Up-to-date bibliography.New to this edition*The text is derived from the OET edition, which prints a critically established version of the 1891 first book edition.*New, fuller introduction drawing on the OET edition which considers the important differences between the 1890 and 1891 texts, Wilde's range of sources, significant critical approaches to the novel and its reputation since 1891.*Textual notes including important variants.*New explanatory notes.*New Bibliography.'The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.'When Dorian Gray has his portrait painted, he is captivated by his own beauty. Tempted by his world-weary, decadent friend Lord Henry Wotton, he wishes to stay forever young, and pledges his very soul to keep his good looks. Set in fin-de-siécle London,the novel traces a path from the studio of painter Basil Hallward to the opium dens of the East End. As Dorian's slide into crime and cruelty progresses he stays magically youthful, while his beautiful portrait changes, revealing the hideous corruptionof moral decay.Ever since its first publication in 1890 Wilde's only novel has remained the subject of critical controversy. Acclaimed by some as an instructive moral tale, it has been denounced by others for its implicit immorality. Combining elements of thesupernatural, aestheticism, and the Gothic, The Picture of Dorian Gray is an unclassifiable and uniquely unsettling work of fiction.

Kenney An accessible and modern translation Includes comprehensive explanatory notes, making the poetic verse accessible and revealing contextual and literary features Contains a glossary and index of names to help the reader follow the developments and characters in the text Includes a bibliographyThe theme of the Metamorphoses is change and transformation, as illustrated in Graeco-Roman myth and legend. On this ostensibly unifying thread Ovid strings together a vast and kaleidoscopic sequence of brilliant narratives, in which the oftenparadoxical and always arbitrary fates of his human and divine characters reflect the never-ending flux and reflux of the universe itself.
