The Rescue, Conrad Joseph
Original, Т8 2018, ISBN: 978-5-521-06671-1
671руб Купить
Civil war rages between the native tribes of the Malay straits. Captain Tim Wingard sides with the Rajah Hassim. An English yacht blunders into this confusion and runs aground. When Wingard goes aboard to offer assistance, the crew gives him insolence, not gratitude. He prepares to leave...then sees a woman. She captivates him, literally holds him spellbound. It is a spell that soon wrecks all his hopes and leads to the failure of the important cause to which he is bound.
 
The Professor, Bronte Charlotte
Original, Т8 2018, ISBN: 978-5-521-06428-1
463руб Купить
The Professor was published only after Charlotte Brontes death; today it gives us a fascinating insight into the fi rst stirrings of her supreme creative imagination. William Crimsworth reveals his attraction to the dominating directress of the girls’ school where he teaches, played out in the school’s «secret garden». Balanced against this is his more temperate relationship with one of his pupils, Frances Henri, in which mastery and submission interplay.
 
The Pioneers, Cooper James Fenimore
Original, Т8 2018, ISBN: 978-5-521-06445-8
776руб Купить
The Pioneers enters of Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales, and the one that incorporates most fully his own experience of growing up in a town of the American frontier. The heart of the novel is a conflict over who owns America, and by what concept of right. The competing claims of Native Americans, Tory loyalists, roving hunters, and visionary cultivators are pitted against one another in the area of history, and the magical village of Cooper’s youth becomes the scene in which a nation’s destiny is forged. Just as accessible and enjoyable for today’s modern readers as it would have been when first published well over a century ago, the novel is one of the great works of American literature and continues to be widely read throughout the world.
 
The Nigger of the Narcissus, Conrad Joseph
Original, Т8 2018, ISBN: 978-5-521-06665-0
313руб Купить
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 sailor’s 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.
 
The Nature of a Crime, Conrad Joseph, Hueffer Ford Madox
Original, Т8 2018, ISBN: 978-5-521-06680-3
208руб Купить
Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford’s collaborative work, The Nature of a Crime is a study of human psychology.

The deep love of the protagonist gives way to even more profound desperation. The feelings of the protagonist, as life is crumbles around him, are expressed profoundly by the two authors.
 
The Mirror of the Sea & A Personal Record, Conrad Joseph
Original, Т8 2018, ISBN: 978-5-521-06679-7
540руб Купить
These works are unique in Conrad’s oeuvre in being openly autobiographical — but in scope and literary form they differ widely. In The Mirror Conrad explores his vast knowledge of the sea in an era when the sailing ship gave way, after thousands of years, to steam. A Personal Record is Conrad’s account of himself, his cultural background, and the central motives in his life as a seaman and a writer separated from the country where he was born.
