Tono-Bungay by H. G Wells( Book )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented as a miraculous cure-all, Tono-Bungay is in fact nothing other than a pleasant-tasting liquid with no positive effects. Nonetheless, when the young George Ponderevo is employed by his uncle Edward to help market this ineffective medicine, he finds his life overwhelmed by its sudden success. Soon the worthless substance is turned into a formidable fortune as society becomes convinced of the merits of Tono-Bungay through a combination of skilled advertising and public credulity.-Includes a newly established text, a full biographical essay on Wells, a list of further reading, and detailed notes -Edward Mendelson's introduction explores the many ways in which "Tono-Bungay" satirizes the fictions and delusions that shape modern life

The birds by Aristophanes( Book )

1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tired of the unending wittering of Athenian lawmen, Euelpides and Peithetairos flee the city with their trusty feathered companions. However, their hoped-for exile begins with getting lost, and the play opens with them crowing and pecking at one another with all the fury of the most terminally bird-brained democrat. Which is when they meet 'his Hoopoeness', the once king Tereus, whom they convince to take them up to a new city, high above the base and grounded demos, burying the age-old animosity between birds and men and, ultimately, challenging the mighty Zeus for the top spot in the sky. The play is full of the most bawdy of Aristophanes' jokes, and is rife with the exasperated cynicism typical of the early satirist of the earliest democracy
Washington Square by Henry James( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Her adored father suspects the would-be fiancé of fortune-hunting and threatens her with disinheritance, forcing Catherine to choose between lover and father
Two plays of Anton Chekhov by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cherry Orchard was first produced by the Moscow Art Theatre on Chekhov's last birthday, January 17, 1904. Since that time it has become one of the most critically admired and performed plays in the Western world, a high comedy whose principal theme, the passing of the old semifeudal order, is symbolized in the sale of the cherry orchard owned by Madame Ranevsky. The play also functions as a magnificent showcase for Chekhov's acute observations of his characters' foibles and for quizzical ruminations on the approaching dissolution of the world of the Russian aristocracy and life as it was lived on their great country estates. While the subject and the characters of the work are, in a sense, timeless, the dramatic technique of the play was a Chekhovian innovation. In this and other plays he developed the concept of "indirect action," in which the dramatic action takes place off stage and the significance of the play revolves around the reactions of the characters to those unseen events. - Amazon
