The Trumpet-Major Автор: Thomas H.
While there are elements of sadness and even tragedy, ' The Trumpet-Major' shows Hardy' s skills of story-telling, characterisation and description in a novel of vitality, comedy and warmth. Hardy skilfully immerses us in the life of the day, making us feel the impact of historical events on the immemorial local way of life - the glamour of the coming of George III and his soldiery, fears of the press-gang and invasion, and the effect of distant but momentous events like the Battle of Trafalgar. Thomas Hardy' s only historical novel, ' The Trumpet Major' is set in Wessex during the Napoleonic Wars. 204 руб √ в наличии

Oscar Wilde - The Major Works Автор: Oscar W.
In addition to "Dorian Gray", this volume represents all these genres, including such works as "Lady Windermere' s Fan" and "The Importance of Being Earnest", "The Happy Prince", "The Critic as Artist", and "The Ballad of Reading Gaol". It brings together a unique combination of Wilde' s poetry and prose short stories, plays, critical dialogues and his only novel - to give the essence of his work and thinking. Oscar Wilde' s dramatic private life has sometimes threatened to overshadow his great literary achievements. This authoritative edition was formerly published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. His talent was prodigious: the author of brilliant social comedies, fairy stories, critical dialogues, poems, and a novel, "The Picture of Dorian Gray". 737 руб √ в наличии
