Most widely held works by Cedric Thomas Watts
Heart of darkness and other tales by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
15 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 1,353 libraries worldwide
Set in an atmosphere of mystery and menace, "Heat of Darkness" tells the story of Marlow's journey up the Congo River to meet the remarkable Mr. Kurtz. It reveals Conrad at the height of his powers as a writer of great vividness, intensity, and sophistication. "An Outpost of Progress" is also set in central Africa and offers a fiercely sardonic view of European imperialism. "Karain", with its Malaysian setting, questions conventional ideas of the contrasts between races. "Youth" is a largely autobiographical account of an inn-fated voyage in which Marlow makes his first appearance.
Hamlet by Cedric Thomas Watts ( Book )

Romeo and Juliet by Cedric Thomas Watts ( Book )
15 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 921 libraries worldwide
Still one of Shakespeare's best loved and most performed plays, Romeo and Juliet has become the definitive love story of Western literature. Its lyrical depiction of an ill-fated romance has stirred audiences and inspired more adaptations and imitations than any other Shakespearean work. Widely considered the epitome of articulate romanticism, Romeo and Juliet also contains a subtext of sexual politics and generational conflict that echoes in relevance to the present day.

Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
18 editions published between 1949 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 662 libraries worldwide
The eponymous Jim is a young, good-looking, genial, and naive water-clerk on the Patna, a cargo ship plying Asian waters. He is, we are told, "the kind of fellow you would, on the strength of his looks, leave in charge of the deck." He also harbors romantic fantasies of adventure and heroism--which are promptly scuttled one night when the ship collides with an obstacle and begins to sink. Acting on impulse, Jim jumps overboard and lands in a lifeboat, which happens to be bearing the unscrupulous captain and his cohorts away from the disaster. The Patna, however, manages to stay afloat. The foundering vessel is towed into port--and since the officers have strategically vanished, Jim is left to stand trial for abandoning the ship and its 800 passengers.

Typhoon and other tales by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
11 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 363 libraries worldwide
"The four tales in this volume share autobiographical origins in Conrad's experience at sea and his exile from Poland, the country of his birth. 'Typhoon' is the story of a steamship and her crew beset by tempest, and of the stolid captain whose dogged courage is tested to the limit. In 'Falk' a taciturn young woman is bizarrely courted by a tug-boat master who is haunted by a terrible secret. 'Amy Foster' tells of an emigrant Pole struggling to overcome isolation and prejudice in England. The final tale, 'The Secret Sharer', is Conrad's most famous short story, a masterpiece of suspense and ambiguity. Giving sanctuary to a fugitive sailor, a young seacaptain risks his ship and his command in the quest to save him."--BOOK JACKET.

It also: looks at his writing techniques, recurring themes and imaginative preoccupations; covers three of his works: Brighton Rock, The Power and the Glory and the film, The Third Man; and lists people and places of importance in Greene's life."--BOOK JACKET.

An excellent conceited tragedie of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare ( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
The original text of Romeo and Juliet differs strikingly from the play we know today. The first edition - or First Quarto - published in 1597 has a more fluid progression, some entirely different speeches, and a speedier climax. In addition, there are hundreds of smaller variants. The availability of this text thus increases the range of interpretations open to actors, directors, critics and students.
