  • Kalevala (Owc) * 2009

    Kalevala (Owc) * 2009

    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The Kalevala is the great Finnish epic, which like the Iliad and the Odyssey, grew out of a rich oral tradition with prehistoric roots.During the first millenium of our era, speakers of Uralic languages (those outside the Indo-European group) who had settled in the Baltic region of Karelia, that straddles the border of eastern Finland and north-west Russia, developed an oral poetry thatwas to last into the nineteenth century.This poetry provided the basis of the Kalevala. It was assembled in the 1840s by the Finnish scholar Elias Lönnrot, who took `dictation' from the performance of a folk singer, in much the same way as our great collections from the past, from Homericpoems to medieval songs and epics, have probably been set down.Published in 1849, it played a central role in the march towards Finnish independence and inspired some of Sibelius's greatest works. This new and exciting translation by poet Keith Bosley, prize-winning translator of the anthology Finnish Folk Poetry:Epic, is the first truly to combine liveliness with accuracy in a way which reflects the richness of the original.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (Owc) * 2009

    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.

  • Mysteries of Udolpho (Owc) * (2009)

    Mysteries of Udolpho (Owc) * (2009)

    Radcliffe, Ann
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    * The only edition available, updated with expanded notes`Her present life appeared like the dream of a distempered imagination, or like one of those frightful fictions, in which the wild genius of the poets sometimes delighted. Rreflections brought only regret, and anticipation terror.'Such is the state of mind in which Emily St. Aubuert - the orphaned heroine of Ann Radcliffe's 1794 gothic Classic, The Mysteries of Udolpho - finds herself after Count Montoni, her evil guardian, imprisions her in his gloomy medieval fortress in theAppenines. Terror is the order of the day inside the walls of Udolpho, as Emily struggles against Montoni's rapacious schemes and the threat of her own psychological disintegration.A best-seller in its day and a potent influence on Walpole, Poe, and other writers of eighteenth and nineteenth-century Gothic horror, The Mysteries of Udolpho remains one of the most important works in the history of European fiction. As the same time,with its dream-like plot and hallucinatory rendering of its characters' psychological states, it often seems strangely modern: `permanently avant-garde' in Terry Castle's words, and a profound and fascinating challenge to contemporary readers.

This is the first edition based on Eliot's final revision of the novel in 1861, using the definitive Clarendon text. Includes George Eliot's journal entry on the real-life origins of the story and the composition of the novel, and broadsheet accounts of the execution of Mary Voce, whose story provided the germ of the novel. The Introduction discusses the novel's historical context and some of the main issues it explores: the role of work, class, and relations between the sexes, and Eliot's belief that the artist's duty is 'the faithful representing of commonplacethings'. Comprehensive notes identify literary and historical allusions and evidence of Eliot's wide reading.

His dalliance with the dairymaid has unforeseen consequences that affect the lives of many in theirsmall rural community. First published in 1859, Adam Bede carried its readers back sixty years to the lush countryside of Eliot's native Warwickshire, and a time of impending change for England and the wider world. Eliot's powerful portrayal of theinteraction of ordinary people brought a new social realism to the novel, in which humour and tragedy co-exist, and fellow-feeling is the mainstay of human relationships. Faith, in the figure of Methodist preacher Dinah Morris, offers redemption to allwho are willing to embrace it.This new edition is based on the definitive Clarendon edition and Eliot's corrected text of 1861.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

    The first full-scale edition of Cymbeline for 37 yearsThis is the first full-scale edition of Cymbeline for 37 years. During that time, there has been considerable interest in Shakespeare's late work in the theatre, and several notable productions have demonstrated the powerful impact of Cymbeline.

A full and detailed commentary pays close attention tothe play's complex, evocative language.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

    Nostromo (Owc) * 2009

    Conrad, Joseph
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'I have heard no end of tales of his strength, his audacity, his fidelity...incorruptible! It is indeed a name of honour for the Capataz of the Cargadores of Sulaco.' One of the greatest political novels in any language, Nostromo enacts the establishmentof modern capitalism in a remote South American province locked between the Andes and the Pacific. In the harbourtown of Sulaco, a vivid cast of characters is caught up in a civil war to decide whether its fabulously wealthy silver mine, funded byAmerican money but owned by a third-generation English immigrant, can be preserved from the hands of venal politicians. Greed and corruption seep into the lives of everyone, and Nostromo, the principled Capataz, is tested to the limit. Conrad's evocationof the great Latin-American landscapes, the ferocity of its politics, and individuals swept up in imperial ambitions has never been bettered. This edition offers new insights into Conrad's masterpiece. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World'sClassics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • Redgauntlet (Owc)

    Redgauntlet (Owc)

    Scott Walter
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    - Arguably Scott's finest novel, and the last of his major Scottish novels, Redgauntlet is the story of an imaginary third Jacobite rebellion, and the attempts to instal the exiled Prince Charles Edward Stewart on the British throne.- The only available critical edition, this reissue includes a fine introduction by Kathryn Sutherland, which examines the historical context, the novel's structure and style, and the story itself.- Reproduces the Magnum edition text, the last to be corrected by Scott, and includes Scott's own notes.- Up-to-date bibliography.- Timeline of Scottish history in the period relating to the novel, as well as a chronology of the author.- Full explanatory notes and a glossary of Scots words.'Far and wide was [Redgauntlet] hated and feared. Men thought he had a direct compact with Satan - that he was proof against steel -.'Set in the summer of 1765, Redgauntlet centres around a third, fictitious, Jacobite rebellion. Kidnapped by Edward Hugh Redgauntlet, a fanatical supporter of the Stewart cause, the young Darsie Latimer finds himself caught up in the plot to enthrone theexiled Prince Charles Edward Stewart. The novel follows Darsie's adventures and those of the advocate Alan Fairford, who sets out to rescue him. These two young men from very different backgrounds are united by friendship and their optimistic belief inthe settled Hanoverian establishment.First published in 1824, this is the last of Scott's major Scottish novels, and perhaps his most complex statement about the relation between history and fiction. This edition uses the Magnum text of 1832.

  • Shakespeare-Mesék /Szentivánéji Álom, Romeo és Júlia, Hamlet

    Shakespeare-Mesék /Szentivánéji Álom, Romeo és Júlia, Hamlet

    Lamb,Charles and Mary
    Kiadó: Tinta Kiadó
    Angol-magyar / kétnyelvű kiadványA XIX. század elején egy testvérpár, Charles és Mary Lamb mesékké alakították a valaha élt legnagyobb drámaíró, William Shakespeare történeteit. Céljuk az eredeti művek olvasásához még túl fiatalolvasóközönség bevezetése volt Shakespeare világába.Könyvük végül ifjúsági irodalomból a felnőttek körében is népszerű klasszikussá vált. Jelen kötetben a húsz közül három mesét nyújtunk át az olvasónak kétnyelvű kiadvány formájában: Szentivánéji álom, Romeo és Júlia, illetve Hamlet, dán királyfi.A nyelvtanulók szempontjait szem előtt tartva a minél kényelmesebb használhatóságra törekedtünk a kötet összeállításakor, ezért egymás mellé igazítva található minden oldalpáron az angol szöveg a bal, a magyar pedig a jobb oldalon. A három mesét így azangol szöveggel párhuzamosan követheti végig az olvasó, akár bekezdésről bekezdésre, mondatról mondatra ? Vas István kiváló fordításában. A Shakespeare-drámák magyarításában is elévülhetetlen érdemeket szerző költő a mesék átültetése során törekedettarra, hogy az eredetin túl a magyar Shakespeare-hagyományból is ízelítőt adjon: munkája során felhasználta a klasszikussá lett magyar fordítások szavait, szófordulatait is. A két szöveg összevetése ezért a nyelvtanuláson és -gyakorláson túlfordításelméleti szempontból is érdekes és tanulságos tevékenység.A holdfényes erdőben tündérbűbáj hatása alatt bolyongó szerelmesek, a tragikus sorsú veronai szerelmespár és a bosszút halogató dán királyfi történetének mese formájában való olvasása garantáltan remek szórakozást nyújt az idősebb és a fiatalabb olvasókszámára egyaránt, nem utolsósorban pedig hozzásegít az angol nyelv alaposabb elsajátításához.

    Aristotle said that philosophy begins with wonder, and the first Western philosophers developed theories of the world which express simultaneously their sense of wonder and their intuition that the world should be comprehensible. But their enterprise wasby no means limited to this

    Wharton,Edith
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'They lived in a kind of hieroglyphic world, where the real thing was never said or done or even thought, but only represented by a set of arbitrary signs.'Edith Wharton's most famous novel, written immediately after the end of the First World War, is a brilliantly realized anatomy of New York society in the 1870s, the world in which she grew up, and from which she spent her life escaping. Newland Archer,Wharton's protagonist, charming, tactful, enlightened, is a thorough product of this society
