Villette (Best Navigation, Active TOC)(Prometheus Classics)

by Charlotte Brontë

This book contains the following works with an Active Table of Contents.

Villette is a novel by Charlotte Brontë, published in 1853. After an unspecified family disaster, protagonist Lucy Snowe travels to the fictional city of Villette to teach at an all-girls school where she is unwillingly pulled into both adventure and romance. The novel is celebrated not so much for its plot as its acute tracing of Lucy’s psychology, particularly Brontë’s use of Gothic doubling to represent externally what her protagonist is suffering internally.

Romeo and Juliet is a tragic play written early in the career of William Shakespeare about two teenage “star-cross’d lovers” whose untimely deaths ultimately unite their feuding households.

Macbeth (Best Navigation, Active TOC)(Prometheus Classics)

by William Shakespeare

This book contains now several HTML tables of contents that will make reading a real pleasure!

Macbeth is among the best-known of William Shakespeare’s plays, and is his shortest tragedy, believed to have been written between 1603 and 1606. It is frequently performed at both amateur and professional levels, and has been adapted for opera, film, books, stage and screen. Often regarded as archetypal, the play tells of the dangers of the lust for power and the betrayal of friends. For the plot Shakespeare drew loosely on the historical account of King Macbeth of Scotland by Raphael Holinshed and that by the Scottish philosopher Hector Boece. There are many superstitions centred on the belief the play is somehow “cursed”, and many actors will not mention the name of the play aloud, referring to it instead as “The Scottish play”.

Dangerous Doggerel: Unsuitable poems for all ages

by Dr. Giles

Forget fake news: the entire world is fake – reality itself is fake (except for reality TV, of course).
And nobody seems to have noticed, except for you, and maybe that doggie in the window, but he’s not letting onâ?¦ Or is he? Dangerous Doggerel sniffs out the ridiculous, chews it playfully for a while, then spits it out onto your shoe. Strangely, it now looks in better shape than beforeâ?¦

A short book of thirty bizarre, quirky and original poems that throw a mad world into perspective by looking at it obliquely. Satirical, surreal and (at times) scary, this is a book which absolutely should be judged by its cover.

Arranged in unruly sections to entertain and distract unspeakable adults, inscrutable teenagers, and unsuitable children, Dangerous Doggerel costs less than a cup of coffee, but will nevertheless keep you awake half the night and make you want to pee yourself.
