              In an effort to save her family from poverty, a young woman takes employment as a governess and discovers the great difficulties, instability, and even abuse that accompany her new position in Victorian society. Based on Bronte's own experiences as a governess, Agnes Grey is a po...ignant tale that explores the repression of women as well as the coming of age of a young and memorable heroine. Deeply personal and socially critical, Agnes Grey has been described by the Irish novelist George Moore as the most perfect prose narrative in the English language.

              As the prophet Al Mustafa departs from the city of Orphalese, heart-heavy but hopeful, he pauses before entering his ship to deliver his final teachings to a group of followers. Answering questions from individuals in the crowd, he delivers a series of inspirational prose poems, ...sharing religious and moral teachings on simple subjects close to their experience.[p]Ranging from topics as intimate as marriage and children, eating and drinking, to others as vast as crime and punishment, religion and prayer, the prophet's words convey the simplicity and beauty of a joyful life as well as the hard spiritual demands of an authentic morality.[p]Praised by Mary Haskell as one of the treasures of English literature, [i]The Prophet[i] has stood for nearly a century as an enduring classic of religious poetry, so that in our darkness and in our weakness we will open it to find ourselves again and the heaven and earth within ourselves. [p]This edition features the unaltered text of the original 1923 edition along with its haunting, original illustrations by the author himself.

When the boys reroute a local rive...r as part of their explorations, they create a conflict between two towns that each need the water, and find that the problem has no easy resolution. As the conflict escalates, the boys are led into further adventures that are as thrilling and humorous as they are morally revealing and provocative.

              Goethes erster Roman, der ihn sofort Ruhm gebracht, erzahlt die Geschichte eines jungen Mannes, der zart und poetisch in seinem Herzen ist, aber nicht in der Lage, um die Harte der Welt zu akzeptieren und in die Verzweiflung getrieben durch unerwiderte Liebe. Die Leidenschaft, El...oquenz und Unmittelbarkeit dieser Geschichte machte es zu einem Benchmark des Sturm und Drang und eine grundlegende Text in der Entwicklung der deutschen Romantik. Es bleibt auch heute zu den meistgelesenen Romanen in allen deutschen Literatur.

              Veiled in a thick and thorny wood, an enchanted princess lies sleeping for a century, awaiting a prince, whose time has come to break the spell. The original tale of The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood was written by Charles Perrault, inventor of the modern fairy tale and creator of ...such timeless characters as Little Red Riding Hood and Puss in Boots. It is among the most beautiful and enduring of all stories, and has inspired hundreds of adaptations, including Disney's Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent. This edition combines Soren Filipski's lively modern translation with two famous sets of vintage illustrations: E. Monnin's lavish engravings from the great 1843 Curmer edition and those of the French master Gustave Dore, from Tales from Mother Goose. Both sets provide a rich, dramatic visual compliment to this haunting tale of love and the passage of time. Also included in the translation is the continuing story of the Princess's life in the years after she awakes, omitted from nearly all modern editions.

              Dickens is widely known for his masterpiece A Christmas Carol. Yet it was only the first in a series of five short novels set in the Christmas season, composed by Dickens over six years. Each is a unique classic, and a profound celebration of Christmas, in its own right. The enti...re series of Christmas Books is here collected in a single volume, including: A Christmas Carol Ebeneezer Scrooge's contempt for Christmas is confronted by four spirits who reveal the value of Christmas and the nature of a good life. The Chimes A pitiless man who has lost his belief in human goodness and nay higher calling for humanity is gifted with a Christmas vision of his loved ones' lives after his death. The Cricket on the Hearth A magical cricket plays the role of guardian angel to a small family through many trials, tribulations, and joys. The Battle of Life A young woman's suspicious disappearance leaves her family in doubt of her good character. The Haunted Man A man tormented by brooding upon wrongs done to him accepts a spirit's offer to lose his memory of past harms, only to find that a deeper conversion is needed to relieve his feelings of anger.
