Cantebury TalesThe Canterbury Tales

By Geoffrey Chaucer

List Price: $9.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $4.98

Within the framework of a Christian pilgrimage the sover and the frivolous, the noble and the salacious are thrown together as a humorous but representative illustration of an evlectic Medieval society. The worthy Knight, the drunke Miller, the hypocritical Pardoner and the lusty Wife of Bath are among the assorted pilgrims competing as entertainment along the way, to tell th ebest tale: legents of chivalric and fantastical romance, lewd fabliaux, and honourable tales of justice, war, and love.

The PrinceThe Prince

By Novvolo Machiavelli

List Price: $7.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $3.98

 

Set in the context of his early political writings, this edition shows how Machiavelli's advice was conditioned by the prevailing political and social culture of Renaissance Italy. His clinical analysis of the dynamics of power, however, is as chilling now as it was then.

Turn of the ScrewThe Turn of the Screw

by Henry James

List Price: $8.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $3.98

 

Henry James' short novels provide an overview of his entire career and serve as an excellent introduction to his singular art and imagination.

WaldenWalden

by Henry David Thoreau

List Price: $9.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $3.98


Walden describes Thoreau's domestic economy, the wildlife, the few visitors to his remote wooden hut, and his reflections on the quality of human life in an age of growing materialism and of a prevailing work ethic. It has become a poignant critique of the values of Thoreau's society which retains its relevance and extraordinary power today.

In the Lake of the Woods The Heart of Darkness

by Joseph Conrad

List Price: $6.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $3.98

 

 

A profoundly influential novel of the colonial time period, Conrad's seminal tale of self-exploration inspired the far-reaching film Apocalypse Now as well as generations of critical discussion.

Alice Adventures in Wonderland Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

by Lewis Carroll

List Price: $6.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $3.98

 

 

Lewis Carroll's Alice books were written as stories for children but have fascinated adults and children alike for over a hundred years. At one level they recount the adventures of a little girl who falls down a rabbit-hole into a dream world of exotic creatures, and passes through a looking-glass landscape inhabited by Red Queens and White Knights, Lions and Unicorns.

Picture of Dorian GrayThe Picture of Dorian Gray

by Oscar Wilde

List Price: $7.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $3.98

 

 

Dorian Gray has just had his portrait painted. It is a perfect likeness of the quite extraordinarily beautiful young man, and it prompts him to make a mad wish for eternal youth.

EmileEmile

by Jean-Jaques Rousseau

List Price: $14.95 (Paperback)
Our Price: $3.98

 

 

Rousseau was certain of man's natural goodness, yet he perceived a world in which that benevolence was obliterated: from birth to death, men were fashioned by artificial social constraints into conditions of servitute, mutual distrust and alienation. Emile attempts to effect such changes, proposing the unprecedented doctrine that every stage of human growth- from birth to adulthood- is not only valid for future development, but is valid in itself.
