Pushkin Alexander The Captain's Daughter and A History of Pugachov

Set during the Pugachov rebellion against Catherine the Great, The Captain's Daughter was Pushkin's only completed novel and remains one of his most popular works. The inexperienced and impetuous young nobleman Pyotr Grinyev is sent on military service to a remote fortress, where he falls in love with Masha, Captain Mironov's daughter - but then the ruthless Cossack Pugachov lays siege to the stronghold, setting in motion a tragic train of events. This volume also contains another work by Pushkin on the same theme, A History of Pugachov, which presents an impartial, meticulously researched history of the revolt, but was regarded in aristocratic circles as subversive on its publication. Together, these two works provide a fascinating insight into the character of the peasant who tried to overthrow an empress, written with the clarity and insight of Russia's greatest poet.

Dear Mr. M

The tour-de-force, hair-raising new novel from Herman Koch, the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Dinner" and "Summer House with Swimming Pool" Once a celebrated writer, M had his greatest success with a suspense novel based on a real-life disappearance. It told the story of a history teacher who went missing one winter after having a brief affair with a beautiful student of his. The teacher was never found. Upon publication, M's novel was a runaway bestseller, one that marked his international breakthrough. That was years ago, and now M's career is fading. But not when it comes to his bizarre, seemingly timid neighbor who keeps a close eye on him and his wife. Why? From alternating points of view, where no one is to be trusted, Herman Koch weaves together an intricate tale of a writer in decline, a teenage couple in love, a missing teacher, and a single book that entwines all of their fates. Thanks to M's novel, supposedly a work of fiction, everyone seems to be linked forever, until something unexpected spins the "story" off its rails. With ever increasing tension, his signature sardonic wit and world-renowned sharp eye for human failings, Herman Koch once again spares nothing and no one in his gripping new novel, a barbed performance that suspends readers in the mysterious space between fact and fiction."

From there the reader will be inspired to explore his or her own relationship with God.

But in spite of attempts to prevent such unions, human beings continue to fall in love with people outside their race, knowing they will be confronted by serious ramifications—even death!Westminster Avenue is a novel that examines love between different ethnic couples in America during most of the twentieth century. As is the case in real life, love is the most powerful human emotion human beings experience, spanning both joy and sorrow! No one has yet figured out why people fall in love with each other. The truth is, it can be a number of reasons, including the often quoted saying “Opposites attract”! But this author suspects it runs much deeper than that. Whatever it is, love affects all human beings emotionally from the pinnacle of happiness to the depth of despair. Westminster Avenue examines interracial love in America in spite of the fact this culture vehemently opposes it.Since love is ubiquitous, the author expands this novel beyond the main couple in this book to include other couples who also fall in love despite racial differences.

Both problems, comprehensibility and classification, emerge from the same root: The book's complex structure. The 10 1/2 chapters seem to be autonomous episodes rather than parts of the same novel. Therefore, some critics have argued that it was rather 'a gathering of prose pieces, some fiction, others rather like essays' and no homogeneous piece of prose. On the other hand, they have also discovered elements which do connect the chapters. Therefore, one could conclude that if A History [...] does not fit into established patterns of the genre novel, it must be a post-modern novel, as the linking elements make it more than just a collection 'of prose pieces'.The other main problem, comprehensibility, is tightly connected with the issues structure and categorisation. Given that readers have discovered connecting elements and found that they add common meaning to the single chapters, they might still have unanswered questions. Does such a complicated structure imply a certain meaning that is beyond the content of the single stories and th...

Woolf V. A Room of Ones Own & The Voyage Out Woolf V. A Room of Ones Own & The Voyage Out Новинка

Woolf V. A Room of Ones Own & The Voyage Out

A Room of One’s Own (1929) has become a classic feminist essay and perhaps Virginia Woolf’s best known work; The Voyage Out (1915) is highly significant as her first novel. Both focus on the place of women within the power structures of modern society. The essay lays bare the woman artist’s struggle for a voice, since throughout history she has been denied the social and economic independence assumed by men. Woolf’s prescription is clear: if a woman is to find creative expression equal to a man’s, she must have an independent income, and a room of her own. This is both an acute analysis and a spirited rallying cry; it remains surprisingly resonant and relevant in the 21st century. The novel explores these issues more personally, through the character of Rachel Vinrace, a young woman whose ‘voyage out’ to South America opens up powerful encounters with her fellow-travellers, men and women. As she begins to understand her place in the world, she finds the happiness of love, but also sees its brute power. Woolf has a sharp eye for the comedy of English manners in a foreign milieu; but the final undertow of the novel is tragic as, in some of her finest writing, she calls up the essential isolation of the human spirit.

Fitzgerald Francis Scott Tender is the Night & The Last Tycoon

"Tender is the Night" is a story set in the hedonistic high society of Europe during the 'Roaring Twenties'. A wealthy schizophrenic, Nicole Warren, falls in love with Dick Diver - her psychiatrist. The resulting saga of the Divers' troubled marriage, and their circle of friends, includes a cast of aristocratic and beautiful people, unhappy love affairs, a duel, incest, and the problems inherent in the possession of great wealth. Despite cataloguing a maelstrom of interpersonal conflict, "Tender is the Night" has a poignancy and warmth that springs from the quality of Fitzgerald's writing and the tragic personal experiences on which the novel is based. Six years separate "Tender is the Night" and "The Last Tycoon", the novel Fitzgerald left unfinished at his death in December 1940. Fitzgerald lived in Hollywood more or less continuously from July 1937 until his death, and a novel about the film industry at the height of 'the studio system' centred on the working life of a top producer was begun in 1939. Even in its incomplete state "The Last Tycoon" remains the greatest American novel about Hollywood and contains some of Fitzgerald's most brilliant writing.

Woolf Virginia Room of One's Own & The Voyage Out

A Room of One's Own (1929) has become a classic feminist essay and perhaps Virginia Woolf's best known work; The Voyage Out (1915) is highly significant as her first novel. Both focus on the place of women within the power structures of modern society. The essay lays bare the woman artist's struggle for a voice, since throughout history she has been denied the social and economic independence assumed by men. Woolf's prescription is clear: if a woman is to find creative expression equal to a man's, she must have an independent income, and a room of her own. This is both an acute analysis and a spirited rallying cry; it remains surprisingly resonant and relevant in the 21st century. The novel explores these issues more personally, through the character of Rachel Vinrace, a young woman whose `voyage out' to South America opens up powerful encounters with her fellow-travellers, men and women. As she begins to understand her place in the world, she finds the happiness of love, but also sees its brute power. Woolf has a sharp eye for the comedy of English manners in a foreign milieu; but the final undertow of the novel is tragic as, in some of her finest writing, she calls up the essential isolation of the human spirit.

Pamuk O. The Museum of Innocence

The Museum of Innocence - set in Istanbul between 1975 and today - tells the story of Kemal, the son of one of Istanbul's richest families, and of his obsessive love for a poor and distant relation, the beautiful Fusun, who is a shop-girl in a small boutique. The novel depicts a panoramic view of life in Istanbul as it chronicles this long, obsessive, love affair between Kemal and Fusun; and Pamuk beautifully captures the identity crisis esperienced by Istanbul's upper classes who find themselves caught between traditional and westernised ways of being.

E. W. Farnsworth Baro Xaimos. A Novel of the Gypsy Holocaust

Baro Xaimos: A Novel of the Gypsy Holocaust follows the nearly miraculous survival path of a group of Roma, led by Tobor Mericano, through the Nazi years, including World War II. The novel opens in the 1930’s on the eve of the formation of the Marzahn Camp. This camp was the prototype for a system of concentration camps designed to contain, oppress and ultimately kill all Roma within Nazi occupied Europe. The gypsies manage to escape the traps set by the German government to find a base of operations in the USSR. From there, gypsies are dispatched by Moscow Center to operate as intelligence gatherers and assassins against the Nazis. These brave souls achieve a semblance of normalcy while in a Russia full of intrigue, by marrying, having children and staying on the move. Baro Xaimos focuses on the love of Tobor Mericano for Drina Mettbach and on the exploits of Tobor’s sister, Nadya Hanstein, a widowed fortune teller who encounters both Hitler and Stalin in her professional role and accidentally changes the course of history.

Adichie C.N. Half of a Yellow Sun

The sweeping novel from the author of 'Purple Hibiscus', shortlisted for the Orange Prize, and winner of the Commonwealth Writers Award. This highly anticipated novel from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is set in Nigeria during the 1960s, at the time of a vicious civil war in which a million people died and thousands were massacred in cold blood. The three main characters in the novel are swept up in the violence during these turbulent years. One is a young boy from a poor village who is employed at a university lecturer's house. The other is a young middle-class woman, Olanna, who has to confront the reality of the massacre of her relatives. And the third is a white man, a writer who lives in Nigeria for no clear reason, and who falls in love with Olanna's twin sister, a remote and enigmatic character. As these people's lives intersect, they have to question their own responses to the unfolding political events. This extraordinary novel is about Africa in a wider sense: about moral responsibility, about the end of colonialism, about ethnic allegiances, about class and race; and about the ways in which love can complicate all of these things.

John D. Frankel Love and the Bay Street Bingo Players. The Final Volume of a Two-Part Trilogy

The wicked pen of John D. Frankel strikes again. The long-awaited sequel to The Heretofore Un-Tolled History of the Independent Republic of Harvey Markson has finally arrived. Readers who enjoyed Frankel’s first novel, a witty existential tour of life inside the brokerage houses and investment banks of Toronto’s Bay Street, will revel in this clever sequel with its familiar layers of tongue-in-cheek narrative, droll humor, and incisive portraits of The Street’s by now famous denizens, including one Zygmunt Adams. “Zyg,” Harvey Markson’s closest friend and confidant, takes center stage in this latest tale, and if Harvey’s quest was to find meaning and purpose in life, Zyg’s mission is to secure love, not wealth. However, though he’s a brilliant and capable businessman, Zyg is less sure of himself in matters of the heart. Love and the Bay Street Bingo Players is a wonderfully mature novel that rings authentic and true in every line of dialogue and in the characters’ questioning self-doubts. But if this is a story about love, it is also about loss. It is about the randomness of life, about seizing opportunities when they come along, and about our all-too-human capacity to miss the boat entirely, whether we are too arrogant to set aside our egos or too afraid to repeat past mistakes. While as shrewdly observant and as mordantly funny as the first novel, the gentle humor that pervades this latest Bay Street tale reveals the author’s evident affection for his characters. A master s...

M. Y. Lermontov A Hero of Our Time

Novel by Mikhail Lermontov, published in Russian in 1840 as Geroy nashego vremeni. Its psychologically probing portrait of a disillusioned 19th-century aristocrat and its use of a nonchronological and multifaceted narrative structure influenced such later Russian authors as Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Leo Tolstoy and presaged the antiheroes and antinovels of 20th-century fiction. The novel is set in the Russian Caucasus in the 1830s. Grigory Pechorin is a bored, self-centered, and cynical young army officer who believes in nothing. With impunity he toys with the love of women and the goodwill of men. He is brave, determined, and willful, but his energies and potential are wasted, and he dies in a duel.

Throughout the history of human beings, the question of love has always posed a problem among different racial groups around the world. But in spite of attempts to prevent such unions, human beings continue to fall in love with people outside their race, knowing they will be confronted by serious ramifications—even death!Westminster Avenue is a novel that examines love between different ethnic couples in America during most of the twentieth century. As is the case in real life, love is the most powerful human emotion human beings experience, spanning both joy and sorrow! No one has yet figured out why people fall in love with each other. The truth is, it can be a number of reasons, including the often quoted saying “Opposites attract”! But this author suspects it runs much deeper than that. Whatever it is, love affects all human beings emotionally from the pinnacle of happiness to the depth of despair. Westminster Avenue examines interracial love in America in spite of the fact this culture vehemently opposes it.Since love is ubiquitous, the author expands this novel beyond the main couple in this book to include other couples who also fall in love despite racial differences. Men and women continue to seek love even after experiencing painful relationships with a previous partner. Love is the driving force in our lives, and the truth is, people never know where they will find it.
