Osud je černý jezdec


George Eliotová patří spolu s Jane Austenovou a sestrami Brontovými k nejčtenějším a nejuznávanějším anglickým autorkám své doby. Přesvědčí Vás o tom nejen v obsáhlých románech, ale i v povídkách, z nichž dvě si nyní můžete přečíst v dynamickém, váš
nivém překladu Kristýny Julinové. Povídku Opona budoucnosti vypráví muž na sklonku svých dní, který byl obdařen neblahým darem číst myšlenky jiných a předvídat věci příští, a může nás těšit, že se její část odehrává v magické Praze. Láska se v ní mís

půvab a potvrzují její oprávněnou přítomnost mezi největšími spisovatelkami 19. století.

OWC Daniel Deronda


Only in her final novel, in 1876, did George Eliot turn to contemporary English and European life as material for the expression of her own idealism. Daniel Deronda is a psychologically incisive investigation, probing the egoism of a spoiled girl and her increasing awareness of conscience through suffering. Gwendolen comes to regard Daniel as her moral and spiritual mentor, but chance, the revelation of his Jewish birth, and his practical and sympathetic identification with his race draw him away from her. The text is that of Graham Handley's Clarendon edition, which is based on the novel's first published form. emergent nationalism and the bitter internal struggle.

Daniel Deronda


What can I do?...I must get up in the morning and do what everyone else does. It is all like a dance set beforehand. I seem to see all that can be - and I am tired and sick of it. And the world is all confusion to me'. George Eliot's last, most controversial novel opens as the spoiled Gwendolen Harleth, poised at a roulette table about to throw away a small fortune, captivates Daniel Deronda. As their lives become intertwined, they are also transformed by suffering, misfortune, revelations and Daniel's fascination with the Jewish singer Mirah. "Daniel Deronda" shocked Victorian readers with its portrayal of the Jewish experience in British society, and remains a moving and epic portrayal of human passions. This is the Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Silas Marner


Wrongly accused of theft and exiled from a religious community many years before, the embittered weaver Silas Marner lives alone in Raveloe, living only for work and his precious hoard of money. But when his money is stolen and an orphaned child finds her way into his house, Silas is given the chance to transform his life. His fate, and that of the little girl he adopts, is entwined with Godfrey Cass, son of the village Squire, who, like Silas, is trapped by his past.
