George Ponderovo's quiet young life is changed for ever when he is forced to leave home and is apprenticed to his dynamic Uncle Edward in his chemist's shop. Edward, determined to 'strike out', invents a bogus medicine called Tono-Bungay which earns him a vast fortune. George's share of the wealth enables him to live out his fantasies by building an aeroplane. As he witnesses the spectacular rise of the Tono-Bungay empire he contemplates a corrupt English society that allows his uncle to wield so much power. This is the only popular edition of the text to include Wells's final revisions. The notes explain his multi-layered allusions, and the Introduction places the novel in its literary and historical context

The Birds is a comic play by the Greek playwright Aristophanes. It garnered awards in 141 BC when it was first performed, and continues to be critically received today.

The shy and sweet daughter of a well-to-do physician, Catherine Sloper seems destined for lifelong spinsterhood until the sudden appearance of a dashing suitor who proposes marriage.

Odes and epodes by Horace ( Book )
2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The poetry of Horace (born 65 BC) is richly varied, its focus moving between public and private concerns, urban and rural settings, Stoic and Epicurean thought. This new Loeb Classical Library edition of the great Roman poet's Odes and Epodes boasts a faithful and fluid translation and reflects current scholarship." "Horace took pride in being the first Roman to write a body of lyric poetry. For models he turned to Greek lyric, especially to the poetry of Alcaeus, Sappho, and Pindar; but his poems are set in a Roman context. His four books of odes cover a wide range of moods and topics. Some are public poems, upholding the traditional values of courage, loyalty, and piety; and there are hymns to gods. But most of the odes are on private themes: chiding or advising friends; speaking about love and amorous situations, often amusingly. Horace's seventeen epodes, which he called iambi, were also an innovation for Roman literature. Like the odes they were inspired by a Greek model: the seventh century iambic poetry of Archilochus. Love and political concerns are frequent themes; the tone is only occasionally aggressive. "In his language he is triumphantly adventurous," Quintilian said of Horace; Niall Rudd's new translation reflects his different voices."--BOOK JACKET

Dance in the sun ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A dancer and pianist arrive at a dance rehearsal studio to rehearse. Before beginning, the dancer (Nagrin) looks sentimentally at a seashell he finds in his rehearsal bag. As the dance begins, Clarke intercuts the same dance as shot in the studio and on a beach. The two geographies are merged into a third plane, with the seashell seen at the beginning perhaps representing the dancer's memory. After the dance, Nagrin and the accompanist share a smoke and begin to discuss the performance, providing a sense of a return to reality. The film abruptly cuts them off
