This book was released on 2018-08-01 with total page 39875 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Regarded by many as the most comprehensive anthology of all time, ‘The Harvard Classics’ was first published in 1909 under the supervision of the Harvard president Charles W. Eliot. An esteemed academic, Eliot had argued that the elements of a liberal education could be gained by spending 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that could fit on a five-foot shelf. The publisher P. F. Collier challenged Eliot to make good on this statement and ‘Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf’ was the result. Eight years later Eliot added a further 20 volumes as a sub-collection titled ‘The Harvard Classics Shelf of Fiction’, offering some of the greatest novels and short stories of world literature. The exhaustive anthology of the ‘The Harvard Classics’ comprises every major literary figure, philosopher, religion, folklore and historical subject up to the twentieth century. This comprehensive eBook presents the complete anthology, with Eliot’s original introductions, numerous illustrations, rare texts and the usual Delphi bonus material.

Book excerpt: Restoration era playwright and poet, Thomas Otway remains a prominent figure in the development of sentimental drama. His verses and plays are celebrated for their convincing depiction of human emotions, produced in an age of heroic, yet artificial tragedies. ‘Venice Preserved’, his undoubted masterpiece, was an enduring theatrical success and enjoyed countless revivals in the ensuing decades, establishing the tragedy as one of the most important works of seventeenth century drama. Otway’s long poem ‘The Poets Complaint of his Muse’ was an open attack against his literary enemies and critics, revealing his sabre-sharp wit and ingenious gift of witty invention. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. For the first time in digital print, this volume presents Otway’s complete works, with numerous illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The early 20th century American novelist Thomas Wolfe produced highly original, poetic, rhapsodic and impressionistic prose, framed in the guise of autobiographical writing. His novels vividly reflect on 1930’s American culture and the mores of that period, filtered through a sensitive and hyper-analytical perspective. His first novel, ‘Look Homeward, Angel’, is now widely regarded as an American classic, characterised for its intense consciousness of scene and place, combined with an extraordinary lyric power. Wolfe imbues his life story with a lofty romantic quality, employing epic overtones. After Wolfe's untimely death at the age of thirty-seven, William Faulkner described him as “the greatest talent of his generation”. This eBook presents Wolfe’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
