Collected Poems 1909-62
Collected Poems 1909-62
"One of the 20th Century's three major voices of Modernist intent, the epoch-defining The Waste Land and the powerfully philosophical Four Quartets are two of the most important poems ever written."
Wuthering Heights (Oxford World's Classics)
Wuthering Heights (Oxford World's Classics)
"A novel of timeless validity and passion. So daemonic and inspiring that every reading leaves you with a sense of uncanny dread and euphoria."
Between the Acts (Oxford World's Classics)
Between the Acts (Oxford World's Classics)
"Woolf's final book - perhaps The Waves will reveal itself to have been more of achievement - but all of her novels are fun, linguistically and sonically playful and she knew how to create a sentence."
Twilight of the idols: And, The Anti-Christ (Penguin classics)
Twilight of the idols: And, The Anti-Christ (Penguin classics)
"One of the greatest and most resounding voices in literature - his influence is inescapable and to read him is to read an authentic prophet and to experience all that comes with that."
Waiting for Godot: A Tragicomedy in Two Acts
Waiting for Godot: A Tragicomedy in Two Acts
"Endgame is superior in a most perepherial way, but anything by Beckett was innovative and has never been successfully surpassed by those following him. Absurdly grim and fun."
Blue of Noon
Blue of Noon
"A morbid genius of nihilistic and surreal erotica / pornography. This book has so many important images and contexts that to ignore it is to close to tomb on liberation."
The Theban Plays (Classics)
The Theban Plays (Classics)
"These plays stand as models - their influence on philosophy, psychoanalysis and the theatre are immense. The Antigone is sublime and profoundly moving, the Oedipus still holds its daemonic power."
English Romantic Verse (Poets)
English Romantic Verse (Poets)
"This is a wonderfully concise and introductory anthology with a few surprises. Socially important prophets and nom-de-triumphs - let it lead you towards more of their poetry."
The Canterbury Tales: A Selection (Penguin Popular Classics)
The Canterbury Tales: A Selection (Penguin Popular Classics)
"Very little needs to be said - it's all here and it's ribaldrous, hilarious, discussion-provoking and wonderfully written. No translations!"
Antony and Cleopatra (Penguin Popular Classics)
Antony and Cleopatra (Penguin Popular Classics)
"Read everything by him - Hamlet, Falstaff, Lear, Caliban, Prospero, Shylock, Angelo - he created so much and we thank him for creating Antony, Cleopatra and Enobarbus."
Great Expectations (Oxford World's Classics)
Great Expectations (Oxford World's Classics)
"A phenomenal story-teller and novelist, creating characters as prolifically as Shakespeare - read much of him but start with this or Hard Times. You'll be able to forget nothing of their imagery."
Labyrinths: Selected Stories and Other Writings (Penguin Modern Classics)
Labyrinths: Selected Stories and Other Writings (Penguin Modern Classics)
"I dabbled with Kafka but ultimately decided that although he's more powerful, to read Borges in conjunction with Robert Browning leaves any reader fearfully exhausted."
Selected Poetry (Oxford World's Classics)
Selected Poetry (Oxford World's Classics)
"One of the most passionate poets - his erotic poems have a wit, and his Holy sonnets a power that few, short of the best (Shakespeare, Browning) have measured up to them."
The Turn of the Screw (Penguin Popular Classics)
The Turn of the Screw (Penguin Popular Classics)
"He's written better novels and novellas, but this is one of his most thought-through and unsettling. No late-October night should be without a reading of this daemonic work of art."
Selected Poems and Letters (Penguin Classics)
Selected Poems and Letters (Penguin Classics)
"Such an angry but enchanting enfant! - one of the classic cases of being manifestly driven to create and one of the best documents we have detailing the growth of an individual mind - and what a mind!"
