Автор: Karin Jacobsen Название: CliffsNotes on Bronte`s Jane Eyre ISBN: 0764585894 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780764585890 Издательство: Wiley Рейтинг: Цена: 692 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ.
Описание: This novel echoes the romantic conventions of the Victorian era at the same time that it recounts many incidents of Bronte's own life. The character of Jane, a young governess who falls in love with her mysterious employer, is a beacon of virtue and integrity against the wiles of life.
Описание: Each of these stories deals with the "dark side" of the human character. Heart of Darkness is a journey up the Congo River to where an ivory agent, Kurtz, mentally disintegrates into a grotesque creature. The Secret Sharer is about a murderous captain who is tragically alienated from other people.
Автор: Andrew Bernstein Название: CliffsNotes on Rand`s Atlas Shrugged ISBN: 0764585568 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780764585562 Издательство: Wiley Рейтинг: Цена: 918 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ.
Описание: Who is John Galt? This famous rhetorical question rings through Ayn Rand's best-selling novel as the people's anthem of despair in depressed economic times. Set in the future, the novel follows capitalist magnates as they battle looters, strikers, and the impending ruin of the United States' economy. The romantic and intellectual relationship between Dagny Taggart, the heroine, and John Galt, whose identity as the leader of the strike is eventually revealed, carries the novel to its climax. This novel, controversial when it first appeared in 1957, purports Rand's objectivist philosophy that the individual is free to pursue his or her own happiness without bowing to God or society. Objectivism in action upholds full laissez-faire capitalism as the only philosophy that can protect humankind's freedom to think, to be inventive, and to live productively.
