The Happy Prince and Other Stories

Oscar Wilde

The Happy Prince and Other Stories

Издательство: Penguin Books Ltd.
Год издания: 1994
Код ISBN:
Формат: 110x180
Страниц: 208

The Happy Prince, The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Selfish Giant, The Devoted Friend, The Remarkable Rocket, A House of Pomegranates, The Young King, The Birthday of the Infanta, The Fisherman and His Soul, The Star-Child
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.

Heidi is only five when she is taken to live with her grandfather, known as Uncle Alp, in the Swiss mountains.

Heidi is growing fond of her new mountain family and friends when she is suddenly taken to Frankfurt to be a companion to Clara, an invalid. Although she brings great joy into Clara's life, Heidi pines for her home in the mountains. Only a miracle can bring joy to both Heidi and Clara, but for someone with Heidi's faith and goodness, miracles really can happen...

When the Mole escapes from the tedium of spring cleaning and embarks on a new life on the River Bank with his friend the Water Rat, he has little idea of the adventures ahead of him. And the greatest adventures of all are concerned with the vainglorious Toad, who is thrown into transports of delight and finally prison by his love of fast motor cars. It is a hard battle indeed for his friends to teach Mr Toad even a little sense.

Young John Trenchard lives with his aunt in the village of Moonfleet half a mile from the sea. His peaceful existence ends dramatically when he discovers a secret passage into the vault of the powerful Mohune family, who once had control of Moonfleet. Wild stories abound of blood-curdling cries and horrific deaths, for here lies the notorious Blackbeard who, it is said, haunts the churchyard in search of a fabled but ill-gotten diamond. Yet instead of glittering treasure Trenchard finds cargoes of contraband. Drawn into the dangerous, secretive world of the smugglers it is not long before he is forced to flee the country.

The Red Badge of Courage

69.00 руб.*

Stephen Crane

The Red Badge of Courage

First published in 1895, this small masterpiece set the pattern for the treatment of war in modern fiction. The novel is told through the eyes of Henry Fleming, a young soldier caught up in an unnamed Civil War battle who is motivated not by the unselfish heroism of conventional war stories, but by fear, cowardice and finally, egotism. However, in his struggle to find reality amid the nightmarish chaos of war, the young soldier also discovers courage, humility and, perhaps, wisdom. Although Crane had never been in battle before writing "The Red Badge of Courage", the book was widely praised by experienced soldiers for its uncanny recreation of the sights, sounds and sense of actual combat. Its publication brought Crane immediate international fame and established him as a major American writer. Today, nearly a century later, the book ranks as an enduring landmark of American fiction. Формат: 11 см x 18 см.

Victor Hugo

Les Miserables

It follows in particular the fortunes of Jean Valjean who out of extreme poverty steals a loaf of bread and then spends many years trying to escape his reputation as a criminal. In later years he rises socially and is a respectable member of society; but he is not allowed to forget his past by the sadistic policeman Javert who is determined to expose him. As Valjean struggles to elude his nemesis, we meet many other unforgettable characters: the tragically victimized Fantine and her daughter Cosette, whom Valjean has sworn to protect; the rascally Thenardier and the quick-witted street urchin Gavroche. Each of them prepares to meet their destinies at the barricades as the July Revolution comes to a dramatic climax. Формат: 11 см x 18 см.
