  • Нортап Соломон. 12 лет рабства. Реальная история предательства, похищения и силы духа
    12 лет рабства. Реальная история предательства, похищения и силы духа
    Нортап Соломон
    В 1853 году книга "12 лет рабства" всполошила американское общество, став предвестником гражданской войны. Через 160 лет она же вдохновила Стива МакКуина и Брэда Питта на создание киношедевра, получившего множество наград и признаний, включая Оскар-2014 как "Лучший фильм года". Что же касается самого Соломона Нортапа, для него книга стала исповедью о самом темном периоде его жизни. Периоде, когда отчаяние почти задушило надежду вырваться из цепей рабства и вернуть себе свободу и достоинство, которые у него отняли. Текст для перевода и иллюстрации заимствованы из оригинального издания 1855 года. Переводчик сохранил авторскую стилистику, которая демонстрирует, что Соломон Нортап был не только образованным, но и литературно одаренным человеком.
  • Jules Verne. Cinq Semaines en ballon
    Cinq Semaines en ballon
    Jules Verne
    Tenter de traverser l’Afrique d’est en ouest par la voie des airs, prétendre survoler dans sa plus grande largeur le dangereux continent noir à bord d’une fragile nacelle livrée à tous les caprices des vents, c’était, au temps de Jules Verne, une entreprise d’une audace incroyable. Comme on peut s’y attendre, les cinq semaines qu’il faudra au docteur Fergusson et à ses deux compagnons pour y parvenir seront pleines d’imprévu et de péripéties. Ce roman passionnera ceux qui s’intéressent aux débuts de l’aéronautique et, en général, tous ceux qui aiment l’humour et la verve des «Voyages extraordinaires» dont Cinq semaines en ballon ouvrait la série. Paru en décembre 1862, il eut un succès foudroyant en France d’abord, puis dans le monde.
  • George Eliot. Daniel Deronda
    Daniel Deronda
    George Eliot
    George Eliot's final novel, "Daniel Deronda" (1876), follows the intertwining lives of the beautiful but spoiled and selfish Gwendolene Harleth and the selfless yet alienated Daniel Deronda, as they search for personal and vocational fulfilment and sympathetic relationship. Set largely in the degenerate English aristocratic society of the 1860s, "Daniel Deronda" charts their search for meaningful lives against a background of imperialism, the oppression of women, and racial and religious prejudice. Gwendolen's attempts to escape a sadistic relationship and atone for past actions catalyse her friendship with Deronda, while his search for origins leads him, via Judaism, to a quest for moral growth. Eliot's radical dual narrative constantly challenges all solutions and ensures that the novel is as controversial now, as when it first appeared.
  • Charles Dickens. David Copperfield
    David Copperfield
    Charles Dickens
    Dickens wrote of "David Copperfield": 'Of all my books I like this the best'. Millions of readers in almost every language on earth have subsequently come to share the author's own enthusiasm for this greatly loved classic, possibly because of its autobiographical form. Following the life of David through many sufferings and great adversity, the reader will also find many light-hearted moments in the company of a host of English fiction's greatest stars including Mr Micawber, Traddles, Uriah Heep, Creakle, Betsy Trotwood, and the Peggoty family.
  • Jules Verne. De la Terre a la Lune
    De la Terre a la Lune
    Jules Verne
    A la fin de la guerre fédérale des états-Unis, les fanatiques artilleurs du Gun-Club (Club-Canon) de Baltimore sont bien désoeuvrés. Un beau jour, le président, Impey Barbicane, leur fait une proposition qui, le premier moment de stupeur passé, est accueillie avec un enthousiasme délirant. Il s'agit de se mettre en communication avec la Lune en lui envoyant un boulet, un énorme projectile qui serait lancé par un gigantesque canon! Tandis que ce projet inouï est en voie d'exécution, un Parisien, Michel Ardan, un de ces originaux que le Créateur invente dans un moment de fantaisie, et dont il brise aussitôt le moule, télégraphie à Barbicane: «Remplacez obus sphérique par projectile cylindroconique. Partirai dedans»... Avec ses personnages parfaitement campés, son humour toujours présent, "De la Terre à la Lune" est une des grandes oeuvres de Jules Verne, une de ses plus audacieuses anticipations.
  • Miguel de Cervantes, Motteaux P.A.. Don Quixote
    Don Quixote
    Miguel de Cervantes, Motteaux P.A.
    Cervantes' tale of the deranged gentleman who turns knight-errant, tilts at windmills and battles with sheep in the service of the lady of his dreams, Dulcinea del Toboso, has fascinated generations of readers, and inspired other creative artists such as Flaubert, Picasso and Richard Strauss. The tall, thin knight and his short, fat squire, Sancho Panza, have found their way into films, cartoons and even computer games. Supposedly intended as a parody of the most popular escapist fiction of the day, the 'books of chivalry', this precursor of the modern novel broadened and deepened into a sophisticated, comic account of the contradictions of human nature. Cervantes' greatest work can be enjoyed on many levels, all suffused with a subtle irony that reaches out to encompass the reader.
  • Guy De Maupassant. La Maison Tellier
    La Maison Tellier
    Guy De Maupassant
    «Fermé pour cause de première communion»: un tel avis, sur la porte d'une maison close, n'est pas chose courante, et les habitués de la maison Tellier, de Fécamp, n'en reviennent pas. Pendant ce temps, Madame et ses cinq pensionnaires vont retrouver à la campagne, le temps d'une fête, leurs émois et leur innocence de petites filles... A côté de ce chef-d'oeuvre, huit autres nouvelles déploient ici l'éventail du génie de Maupassant. Petits employés parisiens, paysans timides, noceurs désabusés, filles rouées ou naïves: toute une humanité, où de surprenantes candeurs se mêlent à la violence des appétits et des intérêts, est dépeinte avec la couleur éclatante et le réalisme vigoureux des toiles de Renoir, de Manet ou de Toulouse-Lautrec.
  • Charles Baudelaire. Le Spleen de Paris: Petits poemes en prose
    Le Spleen de Paris: Petits poemes en prose
    Charles Baudelaire
    Lorsqu'il commence à publier ses petits poèmes en prose dans des revues et des journaux, Baudelaire a beau les qualifier modestement de «bagatelles», il a pleinement conscience de ce qu'ils ont de singulier. Et nous le savons mieux désormais, ce qui s'inaugure de manière capitale dans ces textes qui visent à capter l'étrangeté du quotidien de son temps, ce n'est rien moins qu'une forme littéraire nouvelle. Rimbaud et Mallarmé vont s'en souvenir très vite - et bien d'autres après eux. Bien que le poète y songeât depuis 1857, l'-année des Fleurs du Mal, Le Spleen de Paris ne parut que deux ans après sa mort, en 1869. Ses poèmes en prose constituaient pourtant à ses yeux le «pendant» de ses pièces en vers, et les deux livres, en effet, se font écho à maints égards. Mais, à la différence des Fleurs du Mal, ce n'est pas ici un recueil composé qui nous est offert: un espace de liberté, bien plutôt, où le ßâneur témoigne d'un nouveau regard venu à l'homme moderne pour lequel la réalité multiplie ses images..
  • Charles Dickens. Our Mutual Friend
    Our Mutual Friend
    Charles Dickens
    With an Introduction and Notes by Deborah Wynne, Chester College. Illustrated by Marcus Stone. "Our Mutual Friend", Dickens' last complete novel, gives one of his most comprehensive and penetrating accounts of Victorian society. Its vision of a culture stifled by materialistic values emerges not just through its central narratives, but through its apparently incidental characters and scenes. The chief of its several plots centres on John Harmon who returns to England as his father's heir. He is believed drowned under suspicious circumstances - a situation convenient to his wish for anonymity until he can evaluate Bella Wilfer whom he must marry to secure his inheritance. The story is filled with colourful characters and incidents - the faded aristocrats and parvenus gathered at the Veneering's dinner table, Betty Higden and her terror of the workhouse and the greedy plottings of Silas Wegg.
  • Austen Jane. Persuasion
    Persuasion
    Austen Jane
    Полный, неадаптированный текст произведения. What does persuasion mean - a firm belief, or the action of persuading someone to think something else? Anne Elliot is one of Austen's quietest heroines, but also one of the strongest and the most open to change. She lives at the time of the Napoleonic wars, a time of accident, adventure, the making of new fortunes and alliances. A woman of no importance, she manoeuvres in her restricted circumstances as her long-time love Captain Wentworth did in the wars. Even though she is nearly thirty, well past the sell-by bloom of youth, Austen makes her win out for herself and for others like herself, in a regenerated society.
  • Shakespeare William. Romeo and Juliet
    Romeo and Juliet
    Shakespeare William
    Полный, неадаптированный текст произведения. Love, sex and death are the components of Shakespeare's classic story of the love of two young people which reaches across the barriers of family and convention. It encompasses great love, high drama, low comedy and a tragic ending. "Romeo and Juliet" is a pure tragedy of youth told in verse that is both youthful and intense. The loveliness and the music of the poetry make believable the otherwise commonplace afflictions of blighted love. The beautiful personification of some of the main characters has caused Romeo, Juliet, Mercutio and the Nurse to become part of the world's literary mythology.
  • Elizabeth Gaskell. Tales of Mystery and the Macabre
    Tales of Mystery and the Macabre
    Elizabeth Gaskell
    ‘In the great mirror opposite I saw myself, and right behind, another wicked fearful self, so like me my soul seemed to quiver within me, as though not knowing to which similitude of body it belonged…’ Elizabeth Gaskell is better known today for her pioneering social novels such as "Mary Barton" (1848) but she also wrote some fascinating tales of the supernatural and the macabre, which are collected here in this volume. The real charm of this dark anthology is its variety. Unlike so many writers of this kind of material, Gaskell allows the story to fit the style rather than the other way around and as result there is a charming freshness to each tale. This remarkable author uses different voices, tones and topics to engage her readers and as you turn from one story to the next you cannot be quite sure what to expect.
  • Thomas Hardy. Tess of the d'Urbervilles
    Tess of the d'Urbervilles
    Thomas Hardy
    This title includes introduction and notes by Michael Irwin, Professor of English Literature, University of Kent at Canterbury. Set in Hardy's Wessex, "Tess" is a moving novel of hypocrisy and double standards. Its challenging sub-title, "A Pure Woman", infuriated critics when the book was first published in 1891, and it was condemned as immoral and pessimistic. It tells of Tess Durbeyfield, the daughter of a poor and dissipated villager, who learns that she may be descended from the ancient family of d'Urbeville. In her search for respectability her fortunes fluctuate wildly, and the story assumes the proportions of a Greek tragedy. It explores Tess' relationships with two very different men, her struggle against the social mores of the rural Victorian world which she inhabits and the hypocrisy of the age.
  • Oscar Wilde. The Collected Works of Oscar Wilde
    The Collected Works of Oscar Wilde
    Oscar Wilde
    Wilde's works are suffused with his aestheticism, brilliant craftsmanship, legendary wit and, ultimately, his tragic muse. He wrote tender fairy stories for children employing all his grace, artistry and wit, of which the best-known is "The Happy Prince". Counterpoints to this were his novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray", which shocked and outraged many readers of his day, and his stories for adults which exhibited his fascination with the relations between serene art and decadent life. Wilde took London by storm with his plays, particularly his masterpiece "The Importance of Being Earnest". His essays - in particular "De Profundis" - and his "Ballad of Reading Gaol", both written after his release from prison, strikingly break the bounds of his usual expressive range. His other essays and poems are all included in this comprehensive collection of the works of one of the most exciting writers of the late nineteenth century.
  • Edward Gibbon. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
    The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
    Edward Gibbon
    Gibbon's "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire", published between 1776 and 1788, is generally acknowledged to be a masterpiece of English historical writing. Gibbon takes the reader through the history of Europe from the 2nd-century AD, to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. This edition includes Gibbon's footnotes and quotations, together with brief explanatory comments, a precis of the chapters not included and a list of emperors.

  • Jane Austen. The Complete Novels of Jane Austen
    The Complete Novels of Jane Austen
    Jane Austen
    Jane Austen is without question, one of England's most enduring and skilled novelists. With her wit, social precision, and unerring ability to create some of literature's most charismatic and believable heroines, she mesmerises her readers as much today as when her novels were first published. Whether it is her sharp, ironic gaze at the Gothic genre invoked by the adventures of Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey; the diffident and much put-upon Fanny Price struggling to cope with her emotions in Mansfield Park; her delightfully paced comedy of manners and the machinations of the sisters Elinor and Marianne in Sense and Sensibility; the quiet strength of Anne Elliot in Persuasion succeeding in a world designed to subjugate her very existence; and Emma - 'a heroine whom no one but myself will like' teased Austen - yet another irresistible character on fire with imagination and foresight. Indeed not unlike her renowned creator. Jane Austen is as sure-footed in her steps through society's whirlpools of convention and prosaic mores as she is in her sometimes restrained but ever precise and enduring prose.
  • Twain Mark. Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn. На английском языке
    Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn. На английском языке
    Twain Mark
    Полный, неадаптированный текст произведения. Tom Sawyer, a shrewd and adventurous boy, is as much at home in the respectable world of his Aunt Polly as in the self-reliant and parentless world of his friend Huck Finn. The two enjoy a series of adventures, accidentally witnessing a murder, establishing the innocence of the man wrongly accused, as well as being hunted by Injun Joe, the true murderer, eventually escaping and finding the treasure that Joe had buried. "Huckleberry Finn" recounts the further adventures of Huck, who runs away from a drunken and brutal father, and meets up with the escaped slave Jim. They float down the Mississippi on a raft, participating in the lives of the characters they meet, witnessing corruption, moral decay and intellectual impoverishment. Sharing so much in background and character, these two stories, the best of Twain, indisputably belong together in one volume. Though originally written as adventure stories for young people, the vivid writing provides a profound commentary on provincial American life in the mid-nineteenth century and the institution of slavery.
  • Jules Verne. Vingt mille lieues sous les mers
    Vingt mille lieues sous les mers
    Jules Verne
    Un monstre marin, «une chose énorme», ayant été signalé par plusieurs navires à travers le monde, une expédition est organisée sur l’Abraham Lincoln, frégate américaine, pour purger les mers de ce monstre inquiétant.

Une fois parvenus en vue du monstre, deux immenses trombes d’eau s’abattent sur le pont de la frégate, précipitant Aronnax, Conseil et le harponneur canadien Ned Land sur le dos du monstre… qui se révèle être un fabuleux sous-marin, le Nautilus, conçu et commandé par un étrange personnage, le capitaine Nemo, qui paraît farouchement hostile à toute l’humanité! Condamnés à ne plus jamais revoir leur patrie, leurs parents, leurs amis, la plus extraordinaire aventure commence pourtant pour les trois hommes... La mer était une passion pour Jules Verne; c’est elle l’héroïne de Vingt mille lieues sous les mers, l’un de ses meilleurs et plus célèbres romans.
