Текст книги
TO THE LIGHTHOUSE is at once a vivid impres­sionist depiction of a family holiday, and a meditation on a marriage, on parenthood and childhood, on grief, tyranny and bitter­ness. Its use of stream of consciousness, reminiscence and shifting perspectives, gives the novel an intimate, poetic essence, and at the time of publication in 1927 it rep­resented an utter rejection of Victorian and Edwardian literary values.

The Way of All Flesh
Samuel Butler (1835-1902) was an individualistic Victorian era writer who published a variety of works. He is also known for examining Christian orthodoxy, considerable studies of evolutionary thought, studies of Italian art, and works of literary history as well as criticism. Butler even made prose translations of "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" which remain some of the most popular to this day. His authority on literature came through his posthumous novel, "The Way of All Flesh". Butler.
The Sound and the Fury
Ever since the first furore was created on its publication in 1929, "The Sound and the Fury" has been considered one of the key novels of this century.

At its heart this is a novel about lovelessness - only an idiot has no grief; only a fool would forget it. What else is there in.
An American Tragedy
"An American Tragedy" is the story of Clyde Griffiths, who spends his life in the desperate pursuit of success.

Extraordinary in scope and power, vivid in its sense of wholesale human waste, unceasing in its rich compassion, "An American.
U.S.A. (The U.S.A. Trilogy)
In the novels that make up the U.S.A.trilogy—The 42nd Parallel, 1919, and The Big Money—Dos Passos creates an unforgettable collective portrait of America, shot through with sardonic comedy and brilliant social observation.

A startling range of experimental devices captures the.
The Rainbow
To be oneself was a supreme, gleaming triumph of infinity. This is the insight that flashes upon Ursula as she struggles to assert her individuality and to stand separate from her family and her surroundings on the brink of womanhood and the modern world.

Condemned and suppressed on.
