Alices adventures in wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass


Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. A bright and inquisitive child, one boring summer afternoon she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole. At the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very odd tea party and croquet match. This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood.

Alice\'s Adventures In Wonderland And Through The Looking Glass


Weary of her storybook, one \'without pictures or conversations.\' young and imaginative Alice follows a hasty hare underground-where she comes face-to-face with some of the strangest adventures and most fantastic characters in all literature.

The ugly Duchess, the mad Hatter, the weeping Mock Turtle, the diabolical Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire-Cat-each more eccentric than the last-could have come only from that master of sublime nonsense Lewis Carroll. In penning this brilliant burlesque of children\'s literature, this farcical satire of rigid Victorian society, this arresting parody of the fears, anxieties, and complexities of growing up, Carroll was one of the few adult writers to enter successfully the children\'s world of make-believe, where the impossible becomes possible, the.

Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass


In 1862 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a shy Oxford mathematician with a stammer, created a story about a little girl tumbling down a rabbit hole. Thus began the immortal adventures of Alice, perhaps the most popular heroine in English literature.

Countless scholars have tried to define the charm of the Alice books-with those wonderfully eccentric characters the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum, and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, Mock Turtle, the Mad Hatter et al.-by proclaiming that they really comprise a satire on language, a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children\'s literature, even a reflection of contemporary ecclesiastical history.

Perhaps, as Dodgson might have said, Alice is no more than a dream, a fairy tale about the trials and tribulations of growing up-or down, or all turned.

Lewis Carroll\'s anarchic, disturbing and boisterously funny Alice stories, conjured\nup one afternoon to entertain a young girl, are a unique blend of wordplay, logic, parody, puzzles and riddles. Their dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at an unruly tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen.\nBut, amongst the eccentric humour and witty conundrums, are poignant moments of nostalgia for a lost childhood.

North and South


Set in the mid-19th century, and written from the author\'s first-hand experience, North and South follows the story of the heroine\'s movement from the tranquil but moribund ways of southern England to the vital but turbulent north. Elizabeth Gaskell\'s skilful narrative uses an unusual love story to show how personal and public lives were woven together in a newly industrial society.

This is a tale of hard-won triumphs - of rational thought over prejudice and of humane care over blind deference to the market. Readers in the twenty-first century will find themselves absorbed as this Victorian novel traces the origins of problems and possibilities which are still challenging a hundred and fifty years later: the complex relationships, public and private, between men and women of different.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray


Wilde\'s only novel, first published in 1890, is a brilliantly designed puzzle, intended to tease conventional minds with its exploration of the myriad interrelationships between art, life, and consequence. From its provocative Preface, challenging the reader to believe in \"art for art\'s sake\", to its sensational conclusion, the story self-consciously experiments with the notion of sin as an element of design. Yet Wilde himself underestimated the consequences of his experiment, and its capacity to outrage the Victorian establishment. Its words returned to haunt him in his court appearances in 1895, and he later recalled the \"note of doom\" which runs like \"a purple thread\" through its carefully crafted prose.

Негр с Нарцисса: роман на английском языке


When a black sailor with tuberculosis boards the Narcissus, the shadow of death falls across the ship and the lingering gloom brings out both the best and the worst in the crew. The harsh endurance test of survival at sea, magnified by the dying sailors condition, sends the crewmen through an emotional gamut, ranging from pity and selfless compassion to fear, resentment, and a profound hatred that boils perilously close to mutiny. Joseph Conrad drew upon his two decades of experience in the British merchant marine for the vital, memorable characterizations and realistic depictions of seafaring life in this and many of his other works.

She wasn\'t rich enough. She wasn\'t thin enough.

Fitting in wasn\'t exactly easy. Looking at the smiling girls in magazines, she came to the obvious conclusion: to be accepted, she has to be \'perfect\'.

She had to be a model. But what magazines don\'t tell you is that you can\'t Photoshop your problems away (and they can Photoshop a lot).

So, when you\'re the thinnest you\'ve ever been, your agency fires you, and you\'re battling anxiety and an eating disorder to boot, how do you get through it? You get angry, go viral and discover that, after all that, you\'re not alone. At least that\'s what Charli did.

East of Eden

East of Eden


\'There is only one book to a man\' Steinbeck wrote of East of Eden. Set in the rich farmland of the Salinas Valley, California, this powerful, often brutal novel, follows the interwined destinies of two families - the Trasks and the Hamiltons - whose generations hopelessly re-enact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. Here Steinbeck created some of his most memorable characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of indentity; the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love\'s absence.

Pierre: or, The Ambiguities


\'Ambiguities indeed! One long brain-muddling, soul-bewildering ambiguity (to borrow Mr. Melville\'s style), like Melchisedeck, without beginning or end-a labyrinth without a clue - an Irish bog without so much as a Jack o\'the\'lantern to guide the wanderer\'s footsteps - the dream of a distempered stomach, disordered by a hasty supper on half-cooked pork chops.\" So judged the New York Herald when Pierre was first published in 1852, with most contemporary reviewers joining in the general condemnation: \'a dead failure,\' \'this crazy rigmarole,\' and \"a literary mare\'s nest.\" Latter-day critics have recognized in the story of Melville\'s idealistic young hero a corrosive satire of the sentimental-Gothic novel, and a revolutionary foray into modernist literary techniques.

How Fear Works. Culture of Fear in the Twenty-First Century


In 1997, Frank Furedi published a book called Culture of Fear. It was widely acclaimed as perceptive and prophetic.

Now Furedi returns to his original theme, as most of what he predicted has come true. In How Fear Works, Furedi seeks to explain two interrelated themes: why has fear acquired such a morally commanding status in society today and how has the way we fear today changed from the way that it was experienced in the past? Furedi argues that one of the main drivers of the culture of fear is unravelling of moral authority.

Fear appears to provide a provisional solution to moral uncertainty and is for that reason embraced by a variety of interests, parties and individuals. Furedi predicts that until society finds a more positive orientation towards uncertainty the politicisation of.
