  • THE GULISTAN

    The Gulistan (Rose Garden) is as exalted in the Islamic World as its writer. Written in Farsi in the 13th century Iran (Persia), this masterpiece consists of moral and ethical stories that explore the complexities of human behaviour. It brings to life, in a peerless combination of prose and verse, a world of kings, commoners, lovers, and scholars and provides easy guidance to its readers in their quest for a conscientious living. The Gulistan was an important textbook in elementary education in Hindustan when the British came to rule the subcontinent. It was then that it was translated in English and other European languages by eminent western scholars. This superb translation by John T. Platts has been chosen for the 21st century readers on account of its impeccable language, closeness to the original text and unparalleled notes. John T. Platts (1830-1904) was an English scholar born in the British India. He was a linguist par-excellence. Not only did he translate The Gulistan and Ikhwanu-s-Safa in English, but also compiled dictionaries and Persian and Hindi grammar books. His magnum opus A Hindustani-English Dictionary (1881) has not been rivalled yet. It is still in common use throughout the subcontinent.

  • THE KILLING HOUR

    As gripping as his first powerful novel, this fantastic crime and mystery novel keeps you guessing until the last page. ‘They come for me as I sleep. Their pale faces stare at me, their soft voices tell me to wake, to wake. They come to remind me of the night, to remind me of what I have done. The one problem is that Charlie doesn’t know what he has done. His shorts are covered in blood, there’s a bump on his forehead and on the news it says the two young women he was with the night before were brutally murdered. Charlie knows Cyris is the murderer except the police don’t believe Cyris exists. Nor does Jo, Charlie’s ex-wife, to whom he goes for help. He desperately wants her to believe in him, and when she doesn’t, he knows he must force her. As Charlie goes on the run with Jo bound and gagged in the car boot, he tries to figure out whether Cyris is real or imagined, while the killing hour approaches yet again…

  • THE MERCHANT OF VENICE

    The Merchant of Venice is perhaps most associated not with its titular hero, Antonio, but with the complex figure of the money lender, Shylock. The play was described as a comedy in the First Folio but its modern audiences find it more problematic to categorise. The vilification of Shylock ‘the Jew’ can be very uncomfortable for a post-holocaust audience and debates continue as to whether Shakespeare’s portrayal of this complex man is sympathetic or anti-semitic.

    John Drakakis comprehensive introduction traces the stage history of the figure of the Jew and looks boldly at twenty-first century issues surrounding it. He also explores other themes of the play such as father/daughter relations, the power of money and the forceful character of Portia, to offer readers an energetic, original and revelatory reading of this challenging play.

  • THE MILL ON THE FLOSS

    Raised in the idyllic setting of Dorlcote Mill, the wild and wilful Maggie Tulliver adores her elder brother Tom and is forever trying to gain the approbation of her parents. Yet, as she grows older and the family struggle under the weight of severe pecuniary difficulties, she becomes increasingly caught between the divergent expectations of the four men in her life: a doting father, an obdurate and vengeful brother, a good-looking and frivolous suitor and an earnest old playmate who happens to be the son of her father and brother’s sworn enemy. Tragic and affecting, and drawing heavily on George Eliot’s own rural upbringing and relationship with her brother, The Mill on the Floss is one of literature’s finest evocations of childhood and adolescence, and introduces, in Maggie Tulliver, one of the most beloved heroines in the English canon.

  • THE RED WORD

    As her sophomore year begins, Karen enters into the back-to-school revelry particularly at Gamma Beta Chi. When she wakes up one morning on the lawn of Raghurst, a house of radical feminists, she gets a crash course in the state of feminist activism on campus. The frat known as GBC is notorious, she learns, nicknames, Gang Bang Central and a prominent contributor to a list of rapists compiled by female students. Despite continuing to party there and dating one of the brothers, Karen is equally seduced by the intellectual stimulation and indomitable spirit of the Raghurst women, who surprise her by wanting her as a housemate and recruiting her into the upper-level class of a charismatic feminist mythology scholar they all adore. As Karen finds herself caught between two increasingly polarized camps, ringleader housemate Dyann believes she has hit on the perfect way to expose and bring down the fraternity as a symbol of rape culture but the war between the houses will exact a terrible price.

  • THE SECRET HISTORY OF JANE EYRE

    Why did Charlotte Bronte go to such great lengths on the publication of her acclaimed, best-selling novel, Jane Eyre, to conceal its authorship from her family, close friends, and the press? In The Secret History of Jane Eyre, John Pfordresher tells the enthralling story of Bronte’s compulsion to write her masterpiece and why she then turned around and vehemently disavowed it.

    Few people know how quickly Bronte composed Jane Eyre. Nor do many know that she wrote it during a devastating and anxious period in her life. Thwarted in her passionate, secret, and forbidden love for a married man, she found herself living in a home suddenly imperiled by the fact that her father, a minister, the sole support of the family, was on the brink of blindness. After his hasty operation, as she nursed him in an isolated apartment kept dark to help him heal his eyes, Bronte began writing Jane Eyre, an invigorating romance that, despite her own fears and sorrows, gives voice to a powerfully rebellious and ultimately optimistic woman’s spirit

  • SELECTED POEMS OF LANGSTON HUGHES

    The poems Hughes wrote celebrated the experience of invisible men and women: of slaves who ‘rushed the boots of Washington’ of musicians on Lenox Avenue; of the poor and the lovesick; of losers in ‘the raffle of night.’ They conveyed that experience in a voice that blended the spoken with the sung, that turned poetic lines into the phrases of jazz and blues, and that ripped through the curtain separating high from popular culture. They spanned the range from the lyric to the polemic, ringing out ‘wonder and pain and terror and the marrow of the bone of life.’
