"En forma de breves capítulos, extraordinariamente sustanciosos, prodigios de síntesis y de claridad, el autor acierta a condensar nociones y conceptos esenciales de imprescindible conocimiento para apreciar la obra de arte. Ningún dogmatismo, ninguna limitación de criterio; al contrario, la mayor comprensión y franqueza de espíritu, fueron las cualidades salientes del criterio analítico practicado por Read." --Casa del libro web site

3 editions published between 1954 and 2000 in Polish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spartacus, a fictionalization of a slave revolt in ancient Rome in 71 B.C., is well known today partly because of the 1960 movie starring Kirk Douglas and Laurence Olivier. It was originally published in 1951 by the author himself, after being turned down by every mainstream publisher of the day because of Fast's blacklisting for his Communist Party sympathies. The story of Spartacus, born a slave, trained as a gladiator, who led a slave revolt that was eventually put down by Crassus, was immensely popular, has sold millions of copies, and has gone through nearly a hundred editions. The appearance of this title in the North Castle series brings back into print a book that many regard as a classic, and is enhanced with a new Introduction by the author

The valley of the moon by Jack London( Book )
4 editions published between 1957 and 1985 in Polish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A road novel fifty years before Kerouac, The Valley of the Moon traces the odyssey of Billy and Saxon Roberts from the labor strife in Oakland at the turn of the century through central and northern California in search of beautiful land they can farm independently - a journey that echoes Jack London's own escape from urban poverty. As he lost hope in the prospects of the socialist party and organized labor, London began researching a scientific and environmentally sound approach to agriculture. In his novel it is Saxon, London's most fully realized heroine, who embodies these concerns. The Valley of the Moon is London's paean to his wife Charmian and to the pastoral life and his ranch in Glen Ellen, the Valley of the Moon. A new foreword by Kevin Starr comments on the themes of the novel and its interest for contemporary readers."--Jacket
