  • Effie Briest (Owc)

    Effie Briest (Owc)

    Fontane, Theodor
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'I loathe what I did, but what I loathe even more is your virtue.'Seventeen-year-old Effi Briest is steered by her parents into marriage with an ambitious bureaucrat, twenty years her senior. He takes her from her home to a remote provincial town on the Baltic coast of Prussia where she is isolated, bored, and prey tosuperstitious fears. She drifts into a half-hearted affair with a manipulative, womanizing officer, which ends when her husband is transferred to Berlin. Years later, events are triggered that will have profound consequences for Effi and her family.Effi Briest (1895) is recognized as one of the masterpieces by Theodor Fontane, Germany's premier realist novelist, and one of the great novels of marital relations together with Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina. It presents life among the conservativePrussian aristocracy with irony and gentle humour, and opposes the rigid and antiquated morality of the time by treating its heroine with sympathy and keen psychological insight.

  • The Professor (Owc)

    The Professor (Owc)

    Bronte,Charlotte
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The Professor (1845-6), written before Jane Eyre, challenged contemporary expectations of the novel by its brevity, realism, and insistence on a working career both before and after marriage for its hero and heroine. Strikingly up to date for its period,the action begins against a background of the fight for better factory conditions in the 1830s, and finishes in the early 1840s with the spread of liberal ideas which led to the continental revolutions of 1848.This edition is based directly on the author's fair copy manuscript, and also includes `Emma', Charlotte Bront‰'s last, unfinished attempt to write a novel after Villette.

  • Eugene Onegin: A Novel In Verse (Owc) * 2009

    Eugene Onegin: A Novel In Verse (Owc) * 2009

    Pushkin
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Eugene Onegin is the master work of the poet whom Russians regard as the fountainhead of their literature. Set in 1820s imperial Russia, Pushkin's novel in verse follows the emotions and destiny of three men - Onegin the bored fop, Lensky the minorelegiast, and a stylized Pushkin himself - and the fates and affections of three women - Tatyana the provincial beauty, her sister Olga, and Pushkin's mercurial Muse. Engaging, full of suspense, and varied in tone, it also portrays a large cast of othercharacters and offers the reader many literary, philosophical, and autobiographical digressions, often in a highly satirical vein.Eugene Onegin was Pushkin's own favourite work, and it shows him attempting to transform himself from a romantic poet into a realistic novelist. This new translation seeks to retain both the literal sense and the poetic music of the original, and capturethe poem's spontaneity and wit. The introduction examines several ways of reading the novel, and text is richly annotated.

    Sparkling with the witty dialogue between Beatrice and Benedicts, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable and theatrically successful comedies.This edition offers a newly edited text and an exceptionally helpful and critically aware introduction. Paying particular attention to analysis of the play's minor characters, Sheldon P Zitner discusses Shakespeare's transformation of his sourcematerial. He rethinks the attitudes to gender relations that underlie the comedy and determine its view of marriage.Allowing for the play's openness to reinterpretation by successive generations of readers and peformers, Zitner provides a socially analytic stage history, advancing new views for the actor as much as for the critic.

Tom's encounters with friendly fish, curiouslobsters, and characters such as Mrs Doasyouwouldbedoneby are both an exciting fairy tale and a crash course in evolutionary theory. They also reflect the quirky imagination of one of the great Victorian eccentrics. Tom's adventures are constantlyinterrupted by Kingsley's sideswipes at contemporary issues such as child labour and the British education system, and they offer a rich satiric take on the great scientific debates of the day.This edition reprints the original complete version of the story, and includes a lively introduction, detailed explanatory notes, and an appendix that reprints Kingsley's first attempt to describe the mysterious creatures that live under the sea.

    Collected Poems - Arthur Rimbaud (Owc)

    Rimbaud, Arthur
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'Rimbaud, the poet of revolt, and the greatest' Albert CamusRimbaud is the enfant terrible of French literature, the precocious genius whose extraordinary poetry is revolutionary in its visionary, hallucinatory content and its often liberated forms. He wrote all his poems between the ages of about 15 and 21,after which he turned his back on family, friends, and France to roam the world. In his final years he was a trader in the Horn of Africa. Out of the brief, colourful life and the poetry of sensory wildness has been created the myth of Rimbaud, anenduring icon of youth, rebellion, and freedom. But behind the myth lies a poetic adventure of high ambition and painful rigour, poignant yet heroic. Rimbaud is one of the greatest French poets of all times.This bilingual edition provides all of Rimbaud's poems, with the exception of his Latin verses and some small fragments. It also includes some of his prose pieces, chosen because they offer a commentary on his poetic concerns.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

  • Medea and Other Plays - Hippolytus, Electra, Helen (Owc)

    Medea and Other Plays - Hippolytus, Electra, Helen (Owc)

    Euripides
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Euripides was one of the most popular and controversial of all Greek tragedians, and his plays are marked by an independence of thought, ingenious dramatic devices, and a subtle variety of register and mood. He is also remarkable for the prominence hegave to female characters, whether heroines of virtue or vice. In the ethically shocking Medea, the first known child-killing mother in Greek myth to perform the deed in cold blood manipulates her world in order to wreak vengeance on her treacheroushusband. Hippolytus sees Phaedra's confession of her passion for her stepson herald disaster, while Electra's heroine helps her brother murder their mother in an act that mingles justice and sin. Lastly, lighter in tone, the satyr drama, Helen, is anexploration of the impossibility of certitude as brilliantly paradoxical as the three famous tragedies.This new translation does full justice to Euripides's range of tone and gift for narrative. A lucid introduction provides substantial analysis of each play, complete with vital explanations of the traditions and background to Euripides's world.

    Hamlet (Owc) * 2008

    Shakespeare, William
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Hamlet's combination of violence and introspection is unusual among Shakespeare's tragedies. It is also full of curious riddles and fascinating paradoxes, making it one of his most widely discussed plays.Professor Hibbard's illuminating and original introduction explains the process by which variant texts were fused in the eighteenth century to create the most commonly used text of today. Drawing on both critical and theatrical history, he shows how thisgusion makes Hamlet seem a much more 'problematic' play than it was when it originally appeared in the First Folio of 1623.The Oxford Shakespeare edition presents a radically new text, based on that First Folio, which printed Shakespeare's own revision of an earlier version. The result is a 'theatrical' and highly practical edition for students and actors alike.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

    Adam Bede (Owc) * (2010)

    Eliot,George
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Eliot's first full-length novel, Adam Bede paints a powerful portrait of rural life, seduction, faith, and redemption. 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.

    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.

  • Frankenstein (Owc) * 2008

    Frankenstein (Owc) * 2008

    Shelley,Mary
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Frankenstein was Mary Shelley's immensely powerful contribution to the ghost stories which she, Percy Shelley, and Byron wrote one wet summer in Switzerland. Its protagonist is a young student of natural philosophy, who learns the secret of impartinglife to a creature constructed from relics of the dead, with horrific consequences.Frankenstein confronts some of the most feared innovations of evolutionism: topics such as degeneracy, hereditary disease, and mankind's status as a species of animal. The text used here is from the 1818 edition, which is a mocking exposé of leaders andachievers who leave desolation in their wake, showing mankind its choice - to live cooperatively or to die of selfishness. It is also a black comedy, and harder and wittier than the 1831 version with which we are more familiar.Drawing on new research, Marilyn Butler examines the novel in the context of the radical sciences, which were developing among much controversy in the years following the Napoleonic Wars, and shows how Frankenstein's experiment relates to a contemporarydebate between the champions of materialist science and of received religion.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: Students of early nineteenth- century literature (from A-level up)
