The Last Chronicle of Barset

By: Anthony Trollope

Price: $8.00

Publisher: Wordsworth Classics: 1994

Seller ID: 242615

ISBN: 1853262315

Condition: Very Good Condition


The central drama of the book is that of Mr.Crawley, the curate of Hogglestock who, falsely accused of theft, suffers bitterly with his family. This deceptively simple plot, though, is given a twist, and the character of Mr. Crawley is more ambigious than would at first appear. It is he himself who seems to bring about the most of his suffering, and the portrait of his man--gloomy brooding, and proud, moving relentlessly from one humiliation to another--achieves tragic dimensions. 712 pages. Complete and Unabridged. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Literature;... View more info

Aristotle (384-322BC) is the philosopher who has most influence on the development of western culture, writing on a wide variety of subjects including the natural sciences as well as the more strictly philosophical topics of logic, metaphysics and ethics. To the poet Dante, he was simply 'the master of those who know'. The Ethics contains his views on what makes a good human life. While the work continues to stimulate and challenge modern philosophers, the general course of the argument is easily accessible to the non-specialist. Both as a key influence in the history of ideas and as a work co... View more info

Penguin Books 300. When George Bernard Shaw wrote "Pygmalion" more than a half century ago, it seemed unlikely that his little play would eventually be converted into one of the great musicals of our time, "My Fair Lady," and a motion picture that captured numerous Academy Awards. Yet such popularity should not have been surprising since succeeding generations of readers and playgoers find continual relevance in the story of a speech therapist who successfully converts an untutored flower girl into a darling of high society. The extraordinary wit of the master dramatist of the ... View more info
