The Complete Novels of Jane Austen by Jane Austen Summary

Jane Austen is without question, one of England's most enduring and skilled novelists. With her wit, social precision, and unerring ability to create some of literature's most charismatic and believable heroines, she mesmerises her readers as much today as when her novels were first published. Whether it is her sharp, ironic gaze at the Gothic genre invoked by the adventures of Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey; the diffident and much put-upon Fanny Price struggling to cope with her emotions in Mansfield Park; her delightfully paced comedy of manners and the machinations of the sisters Elinor and Marianne in Sense and Sensibility; the quiet strength of Anne Elliot in Persuasion succeeding in a world designed to subjugate her very existence; and Emma - 'a heroine whom no one but myself will like' teased Austen - yet another irresistible character on fire with imagination and foresight. Indeed not unlike her renowned creator. Jane Austen is as sure-footed in her steps through society's whirlpools of convention and prosaic mores as she is in her sometimes restrained but ever precise and enduring prose.

Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories: Volumes I and II by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Summary

Since his first appearance in Beeton’s Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in one eBook, Bantam Classics presents all fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle’s classic hero—a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes’s adventures in crime! Volume I includes the early novel A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, The Sign of Four presents Holmes’s famous “seven percent solution” and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery. Also included are Holmes’s feats of extraordinary deception in such famous cases as the chilling “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” the baffling riddle of “The Musgrave Ritual,” and the ingeniously plotted “The Five Orange Pips.” Volume II begins with The Hound of Baskervilles, a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written. The Valley of Fear matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmes’s feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the thrilling “The Adventure of the Red Circle,” Holmes’s tragic and fortunately premature farewell in “The Final Problem,” and the twelve baffling adventures from The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes. Conan Doyle’s incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221 B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.

Mercy of a Rude Stream: The Complete Novels by Henry Roth Summary

This "landmark of the American literary century" (Boston Globe) is finally published as one volume, appearing with a brilliant new introduction. Sixty years after the publication of his great modernist masterpiece, Call It Sleep, Henry Roth, a retired waterfowl farmer already in his late eighties, shocked the literary world with the announcement that he had written a second novel. It was called, he reported, Mercy of a Rude Stream, the title inspired by Shakespeare, and it followed the travails of one Ira Stigman, whose family had just moved to New York’s Jewish Harlem in that "ominous summer of 1914." "It is like hearing that…J. D. Salinger is preparing a sequel to The Catcher in the Rye," the New York Times Book Review pronounced, while Vanity Fair extolled Roth's new work as "the literary comeback of the century." Even more astonishing was that Roth had not just written a second novel but a total of four chronologically linked works, all part of Mercy of a Rude Stream. Dying in 1995 at the age of eighty-nine, Roth would not live to see the final two volumes of this tetralogy published, yet the reappearance of Mercy of a Rude Stream, a fulfillment of Roth's wish that these installments appear as one complete volume, allows for a twenty-first-century public to reappraise this late-in-life masterpiece, just as Call it Sleep was rediscovered by a new generation in 1964. As the story unfolds, we follow the turbulent odyssey of Ira, along with his extended Jewish family, friends, and lovers, from the outbreak of World War I through his fateful decision to move into the Greenwich Village apartment of his muse and older lover, the seductive but ultimately tragic NYU professor Edith Welles. Set in both the fractured world of Jewish Harlem and the bohemian maelstrom of the Village, Mercy of a Rude Stream echoes Nabokov in its portrayal of sexual deviance, and offers a harrowing and relentless family drama amid a grand panorama of New York City in the 1910s and Roaring 20s. Yet in spite of a plot that is fraught with depictions of menace, violence, and intense self-loathing, Mercy of a Rude Stream also contains a cathartic, even redemptive, overlay as "provocative as anything in the chapters of St. Augustine" (Los Angeles Times), in which an elder Ira, haunted by the sins of his youth, communes with his computer, Ecclesias, as he recalls how his family's traditional piety became corrupted by the inexorable forces of modernity. As Ira finally decides to get "the hell out of Harlem," his Proustian act of recollection frees him from the ravages of old age, and suddenly he is in his prime again, the entire telling of Mercy his final pronouncement. Mercy of a Rude Stream is that rare work of fiction that creates, through its style and narration, a new form of art. Indeed, the two juxtaposed voices—one of the "little boys swimming in a sea of glory," the other of one of those same boys "in old age being rudely swept to sea"—creates a counterpoint, jarring yet oddly harmonious, that makes this prophetic American work such an lasting statement on the frailties of memory and the essence of human consciousness. Mercy of a Rude Stream: The Complete Novels includes A Star Shines Over Mt. Morris Park, A Diving Rock on the Hudson, From Bondage, and Requiem for Harlem.

Nathaniel Hawthorne by Nathaniel Hawthorne Summary

Nathaniel Hawthorne is an author who continues to present contradictions to the reader and scholar. He was a meticulous observer and recorder of everyday life, yet his fiction tends deliberately towards the fantastical and grotesque. He always identified himself strongly with the early history of New England, yet spent several years in Britain and Europe, and remained fascinated by modern social and technological innovation. Contemporaries praised his sentiment and moral purity, but it is his psychological penetration, verging at times on surreal allegory, which has attracted modern appreciation. Not least surprisingly, The Scarlet Letter has become a staple of the novelistic canon, while much of the rest of Hawthorne's oeuvre goes almost unnoticed-a situation which is surely ripe for correction. This edition contains all the works (fiction and essays and sketches) published by Hawthorne which it has proved possible to reproduce. It also includes the unfinished novels, and the selections from Hawthorne's diaries and letters published by his widow after his death. All of the works have been newly typeset for this edition. Prof. Nick Lawrence (University of Warwick) has written a new critical introduction to Hawthorne's oeuvre, including a chronology of the author's life, contexts for reading his work, an overview of contemporary and subsequent reception, and a brief bibliography. This edition contains all the works (fiction and essays and sketches) published by Hawthorne which it has proved possible to trace. It also includes the unfinished novels, and the selections from Hawthorne's diaries and letters published by his widow after his death. The contents of the volumes are: Volume 1 ( pp.): Introduction to the works by Prof. Nick Lawrence; Twice-Told Tales Volume 2 (314 pp.): Mosses from an Old Manse Volume 3 (356 pp.): The House of the Seven Gables; The Snow Image and other Twice-Told Tales Volume 4 (373 pp.): A Wonder-book; Tanglewood Tales; Grandfather's Chair Volume 5 (336 pp.): The Scarlet Letter; The Blithedale Romance Volume 6 (307 pp.): The Marble Faun Volume 7 (313 pp.): Our Old Home; extracts from English Note-books (first part) Volume 8 (330 pp.): extracts from English Note-books (remainder) Volume 9 (242 pp.): extracts from American Note-books Volume 10 (302 pp.): extracts from French and Italian Note-books Volume 11 (293 pp.): The Dolliver Romance; Fanshawe; Septimius Felton; The Ancestral Footstep Volume 12 (262 pp.): tales and sketches not published elsewhere; Biographical Stories; Biographical Sketches; Alice Doane's Appeal; Chiefly about War Matters; Life of Franklin Pierce Volume 13 (201 pp.): Dr. Grimshaw's Secret (as edited by Julian Hawthorne) All of the works have been newly typeset for this edition.
