Urbane, dandyish, sardonic - the popular image of Oscar Wilde does not immediately conjure up a writer of enchanting fairy tales. Yet, as this collection admirably shows, he was also a poet, dreamer and, above all, born storyteller. "The Happy Prince", one of his best-loved stories, tells of the attempts of a kind-hearted statue and an amorous swallow to rid their city of poverty, and of their heavenly reward. Others include the tale of the unjust but repentant giant who discovers joy in loving others, the nightingale willing to die for love, and a pompous although very remarkable rocket, ready to display his talents and his ignorance. Full of splendid, joyous imagery - birds, flowers, fireworks and palaces - the stories are infused with an underlying wisdom and morality. Beguilingly haunting and original, these timeless tales - initially invented by Wilde for his own children - remain as popular today as when they were written over a hundred years ago.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Scarlet Letter

A settler in New England, Hester Prynne has waited two years for her husband, an ageing English scholar, to join her. He arrives to find her in the pillory, a small baby in her arms. She must, as a punishment for her adultery, wear a scarlet 'A1 embroidered on her breast and is consequently ostracized by her contemptuous neighbours. Sworn to keep secret the identity of both her husband and her lover, Hester slowly wins the respect of society by her charitable acts. Her own strength and the moral cowardice of the man who allows her to face guilt and shame alone are brought into sharp contrast in a dramatic and harrowing conclusion. Формат: 11 см х 18 см.

John Cleland

Fanny Hill or Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure

From her position of wealth and happy respectability, Fanny Hill looks back at her early life and disreputable adventures. Arriving in London alone, poor and innocent, she falls into the hands of a brothel-keeper. But only when she is separated from the man she loves does she enrol in the "unhappy profession" of prostitution. Fanny becomes a kept woman and also works in an elegant bawdy-house, entertaining polite voluptuaries. By the age of eighteen, she can afford to retire; in her marriage she can at last combine sexual passion with romantic love. Like its heroine, the novel "Fanny Hill" has also risen to respectability. It is now recognized as an erotic entertainment that exemplifies both the philosophy of libertinism and the attitudes of eighteenth century bourgeoisie, combining sensibility, irony and enlightened self-interest.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest

This is how Oscar Wilde described the philosophy of "The Importance of Being Earnest", his most sparkling, witty and light-hearted play of aristocratic manners and high society. To avoid family duties, Algernon Moncrieff, a bachelor-about-town, has invented Bunbury, a sick relative who frequently calls him away. His friend Jack Worthing has invented a wicked brother called Ernest to diguise his own misdemeanours. When Algernon poses as Ernest, confusion takes a hold and it takes the discovery of an old black handbag before Jack and Algernon can discover the truth behind the deceit. In a brilliant expose of social follies, Oscar Wilde has written the most delightful, timeless comedy of them all. Формат: 11 см х 18 см.

King Lear

When King Lear abdicates his throne and divides his kingdom between his three daughters, he offends both the law of family and the law of kingship. Spiritually blind and on the brink of madness, he begins to recognize the faults that lie within his soul and, as the drama reaches its cathartic conclusion, to make amends for them.
