  • Jerome K. Jerome. Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)/Трое в лодке не считая собаки
    Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)/Трое в лодке не считая собаки
    Jerome K. Jerome
    Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), published in 1889, is a humorous account by Jerome K. Jerome of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. The book was intended initially to be a serious travel guide, with accounts of local history of places along the route, but the humorous elements eventually took over, to the point where the serious and somewhat sentimental passages now seem like an unnecessary distraction to the essentially comic novel. One of the most praised things about Three Men in a Boat is how undated it appears to modern readers. The jokes seem fresh and witty even today.

  • James Joyce. Ulysses
    James Joyce
    Ulysses is a snapshot of one day's life. Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous, and unreadable. It is funny, sorrowful, and even suspenseful. And despite the exegetical industry that has sprung up in the last 75 years, Ulysses is also a compulsively readable book. Even the verbal vaudeville of the final chapters can be navigated with relative ease, as long as you're willing to be buffeted, tickled, challenged, and (occasionally) vexed by Joyce's sheer command of the English language.Among other things, a novel is simply a long story, and the first question about any story is: What happens? In the case of Ulysses, the answer might be Everything.

  • Joseph Conrad. Within the Tides
    Within the Tides
    Joseph Conrad
    Written at various times, under various influences, the four stories contained in Within The Tides are linked by Conrad's treatment of loyalty and betrayal.They range in setting from the Far East via eighteenth-century Spain to England. The tone shifts from the tragic inevitability of The Planter of Malata and the pathos of Because of the Dollars to the gothic The Inn of the Two Witches and the grim humour of The Partner. The form of the stories was experimental but does not obscure Conrad's humanity or his search for moral truth.
  • Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell. Wives and Daughters/Жены и дочери
    Wives and Daughters/Жены и дочери
    Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell
    Wives and Daughters is far more than a nostalgic evocation of village life; it offers an ironic critique of mid-Victorian society. No nineteenth-century novel contains a more devastating rejection than this of the Victorian male assumption of moral authority', writes Pam Morris in her introduction to this new edition, in which she explores the novel's main themes - the role of women, Darwinism and the concept of Englishness - and its literary and social context.

  • Emily Bronte. Wuthering Heights
    Wuthering Heights
    Emily Bronte
    Although Wuthehng Heights is now regarded as a classic of English literature, contemporary opinions were deeply polarized; the novel was considered controversial because of its naturalistic depiction of mental and physical cruelty.

  • Emily Bronte. Wuthering Heights
    Wuthering Heights
    Emily Bronte
    Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.
