David Copperfield by Charles Dickens( )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It adds to the charm of this book to remember that it is virtually a picture of the author's own boyhood. It is an excellent picture of the life of a struggling English youth in the middle of the last century. The pictures of Canterbury and London are true pictures and through these pages walk one of Dickens' wonderful processions of characters, quaint and humorous, villainous and tragic. Nobody cares for Dickens heroines, least of all for Dora, but take it all in al, l this book is enjoyed by young people more than any other of the great novelist. After having read this you will wish to read Nicholas Nickleby for its mingling of pathos and humor, Martin Chuzzlewit for its pictures of American life as seen through English eyes, and Pickwick Papers for its crude but boisterous humor

He lived in the Dark Ages of the future. In a loveless world he dared to love the woman of his choice. In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilisation, he had the courage to seek and find knowledge. But these were not the crimes for which he would be hunted. He was marked for death because he had committed the unpardonable sin: He had stood forth from the mindless human herd. He was a man alone

Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert( )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and French and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a novelist's attention to psychological detail, a diarist's love of personal history, and a moralist's penchant for spinning parables, the Roman writer Plutarch created an altogether new kind of biographical history with his Parallel Lives, a series of paired portraits of major figures from classical Greece and Rome. In this program, Plutarch himself is held up for scrutiny, and he gives an extraordinary accounting of himself. Philosopher, priest of the Temple of Apollo, benefactor, and early advocate for the education of women, Plutarch practiced what he preached: "The virtues of these great men serve me as a sort of looking-glass, in which I may see how to adjust and adorn my own life." Passages from Parallel Lives are interspersed throughout the program, highlighting both Plutarch's style and his substance
Pioneers of the old Southwest : a chronicle of the dark and bloody ground by Constance Lindsay Skinner( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating chronicle of the pioneers of the Old Southwest, which is mainly the colonial settlement of Kentucky and Tennessee, and the Revolutionary War battles to keep the colonies in American hands. This narrative is founded largely on original sources-on the writings and journals of pioneers and contemporary observers, such as Doddridge and Adair, and on the public documents of the period as printed in the Colonial Records and in the American Archives

Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1899, novel Lord Jim is both a riveting sea adventure and a fascinating portrait of a unique outcast from civilization. One long evening, over cigars and brandy, the seasoned sea captain, Marlow, recalls the life of a handsome young first mate who loses his ship and his honor, but becomes a god. As his friends listen and question, the powerful and eloquent story of Lord Jim unfolds. Joseph Conrad's novels are timeless. The images he creates in Lord Jim, of man's struggle to maintain a balance between morality and human weakness, have been echoed in countless other novels and major motion pictures
Crime and punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raskolnikov commits murder. He then must deal both with the police, and his own guilty conscience. Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excrutiating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime and Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published serially in 1868, Wilkie Collins's "The Moonstone" is generally considered the first full length detective novel in the English language. The Moonstone, a large and valuable, yellow diamond, plundered from an Indian temple by Colonel Herncastle during the Siege of Seringapatam, is rumored to bring bad luck to its owner. The Colonel bequeathes the diamond to his niece Rachel Verinder on her eighteenth birthday. At her birthday party, Rachel wears the Moonstone for all to see, later that night the priceless stone is stolen again and an investigation ensues to discover the identity of the thief and recover the jewel. When Sergeant Cuff is brought in to investigate the crime, he soon realizes that no one in Rachel's household is above suspicion. Hailed by T. S. Eliot as "the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels," and described by G. K. Chesterton as "probably the best detective tale in the world," "The Moonstone" is one of Wilkie Collins's most popular works which influenced the development of an entirely new genre of fiction. The Moonstone is a marvellously taut and intricate tale of mystery, in which facts and memory can prove treacherous and not everyone is as they first appear
