One Thousand Dollars and Other Plays
A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Books Автор: Charles D.
All five stories show Dickens at his unpredictable best, jumbling together comedy and melodrama, genial romance and urgent social satire, in pursuit of his aim ' to awaken some loving and forbearing thoughts, never out of season in a Christian land' . ' What was merry Christmas to Scrooge? Out upon merry Christmas! What good had it ever done to him? ' Ebenezer Scrooge is a bad-tempered skinflint who hates Christmas and all it stands for, but a ghostly visitor foretells three apparitions who will thaw Scrooge' s frozen heart. "A Christmas Carol" has gripped the public imagination since it was first published in 1843, and it is now as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe or plum pudding. This edition reprints the story alongside Dickens' s four other Christmas Books: "The Chimes", "The Cricket on the Hearth", "The Battle of Life", and "The Haunted Man". 492 руб √ в наличии

The Queen of Spades and Other Stories Автор: Alexander P.
This volume contains three other major works of Pushkin' s fiction, moving from the witty parodies of sentimentalism and high melodrama in "The Tales of Belkin" to an early experiment with recreating the past in Peter the Great' s Blackamoor. It concludes with the novel-length masterpiece "The Captain' s Daughter", which combines historical fiction in the manner of Sir Walter Scott with the colour and devices of the Russian fairy-tale in a narrative of rebellion and romance. These new translations, as well as being meticulously faithful to the original, do full justice to the elegance and fluency of Pushkin' s prose. The Introduction provides insightful readings of the stories and places them in their European literary context. "The Queen of Spades" has long been acknowledged as one of the world' s greatest short stories. In this classic literary representation of gambling, Alexander Pushkin explores the nature of obsession. Hints of the occult and gothic alternate with scenes of St Petersburg high-society in the story of the passionate Hermann' s quest to master chance and make his fortune at the card-table. 554 руб √ в наличии
