Краткая информация
Описание

«Луна и грош» — одно из самых глубоких произведений классика английской литературы Уильяма Сомерсета Моэ-ма. В романе рассказывается драматическая история о чело-веке, который, в зрелом возрасте ощутив в себе дар художни-ка, не побоялся круто изменить свою жизнь.

Писатель не становится ни на чью сторону, не морализирует, не осуждает Чарльза Стрикленда, прототипом которого послужил Поль Гоген, за жестокое обращение с близкими ему людьми, не вос-хваляет его за решимость, а дает право читателю самостоя-тельно делать выводы. .

В книге приводится неадаптированный текст на языке оригинала, снабженный комментариями, заданиями и сло-варем. .

Потрясающая история художника, бросившего все ради своей мечты. Его страсть - свобода.

Его жизнь - творчество. Его рай - экзотический остров Полинезии.

А его прошлое - лишь эскиз к самой величайшей его работе, в которой слилось возвышенное и земное, луна и грош . Луна и грош - одно из лучших произведений Моэма.

Роман, о котором литературные критики спорят уже много десятилетий, однако так и не пришли к единому мнению, можно ли считать историю трагической жизни и смерти английского художника Стрикленда своеобразной вольной биографией Поля Гогена?.

Death of a Hero


One of the great World War I antiwar novels—honest, chilling, and brilliantly satirical.Based on the author\'s experiences on the Western Front, Richard Aldington\'s first novel, Death of a Hero, finally joins the ranks of Penguin Classics.

Our hero is George Winterbourne, who enlists in the British Expeditionary Army during the Great War and gets sent to France. After a rash of casualties leads to his promotion through the ranks, he grows increasingly cynical about the war and disillusioned by the hypocrisies of British society.

Aldington\'s writing about Britain\'s ignorance of the tribulations of its soldiers is among the most biting ever published. Death of a Hero vividly evokes the morally degrading nature of combat as it rushes toward its astounding finish.

Monk, The


A masterpiece of the Gothic genre, The Monk tells the story of the Capuchin friar Ambrosio and his fall from grace through desire, greed and lust. Published anonymously and favourably reviewed at first, the the novel was later so widely and raucously denounced for its perceived licentiousness, blasphemy and corrupting influence that Lewis had to remove controversial passages from future editions.

Unsurprisingly, amidst this furore, the book was immensely popular with the reading public. Suffused with eroticism and focusing on the corrupting influence of power, The Monk pioneered a shocking new form of Gothic novel, where elements such as mob violence, incest and brutal murders replaced the gentler horrors of earlier practitioners of the genre such as Horace Walpole and Ann Radcliffe.

In 778, after years of fierce battle, the army of the Franks is finally on the brink of victory over the Saracens at Saragossa.

Little does he suspect Ganelon\'s treachery and the disaster that is about to unfold at the Pass of Roncesvalles. Probably written around three centuries after the events it describes, The Song of Roland is the earliest and finest example of the French chanson de geste, a verse epic celebrating heroic deeds to be sung or recited by wandering minstrels.

If Only They Could Talk


To young James Herriot, fresh out of veterinary college, Yorkshire appears to offer an idyllic pocket of rural life in a rapidly changing world. But even life in the sleepy village of Darrowby has its challenges: from his new colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, to herds of semi-feral cattle and gruff farmers with incomprehensible accents.

Heart-breaking and hilarious in equal measure, If Only They Could Talk is the first volume of classic memoirs which chronicle James Herriot\'s first years as country vet in the 1930\'s. This beautiful Macmillan Collector\'s Library edition of If Only They Could Talk features an afterword by Yorkshire Shepherdess and author Amanda Owen.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector\'s Library is a series of beautiful gift.

Letters to Vera

Letters to Vera


No marriage of a major twentieth-century writer is quite as beguiling as that of Vladimir Nabokov’s to Vera Slonim. She shared his delight at the enchantment of life’s trifles and literature’s treasures, and he rated her as having the best and quickest sense of humor of any woman he had met.

From their first encounter in 1923, Vladimir’s letters to Vera chronicle a half-century-long love story, one that is playful, romantic, and memorable. At the same time, the letters reveal much about their author.

We see the infectious fascination with which Vladimir observed everything — animals, people, speech, landscapes and cityscapes — and glimpse his ceaseless work on his poems, plays, stories, novels, memoirs, screenplays, and translations. This delightful volume is enhanced by.
