Dubliners: And Chamber Music

by James Joyce

James Joyce's first book, Dubliners, is a collection of stories that present Irish middle class life in Dublin. It took nearly ten years for Joyce to get Dubliners published – never before had a book depicted Irish life in such a realistic manner. Published as Irish nationalism was hitting a fever pitch, the stories are considered some of the most important ever to emerge from the country, both in terms of literary innovation and the diverse experiences described. Some of the characters from the collection would later reappear in Joyce's literary masterpiece, Ulysses.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

by James Joyce

Consistently ranked as one of the best novels ever written, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is Irish author James Joyce's most autobiographical work. It tells the story of the intellectual and philosophical journey of Stephen Dedalus, a young Catholic man and later an artist, as he questions his upbringing in the Church and Irish society. A coming of age story told in Joyce's distinctive modernist style, the novel was hugely controversial upon its publication, but has ultimately found a place as a universally praised offering from a master of English literature.

The Men Who Would Be King: Suitors To Queen Elizabeth I

by Josephine Ross

From her childhood, overshadowed by the marital upheavals of her father Henry VIII, and the tragic first encounter with courtship, to the fantastical flirtations of her old age, Elizabeth refused to commit herself to any man. During the marriage negotiations, which spanned half a century, romance blended with diplomacy as one illustrious suitor after another endeavoured to ally himself to her in the most intimate of treaties. Sought after by some of the most powerful men in Europe, she knew her marriageable status to be one of her greatest assets. She played one suitor against another, exploiting her situation to the full both for England's profit and her pleasure. By turns she encouraged and eluded her pursuers, keeping alive hopes which she would never fulfil. Yet one man did come close to winning her. Ambitious, devious Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, suspected by many of having murdered his wife, was the most persistent of the suitors to the Queen, and though he never attained the prize he longed for, he was dearly loved by Elizabeth all her life. This is a fascinating look at the many suitors of Elizabeth I.

Civilisation: A Personal View

by Kenneth Clark

Kenneth Clark's sweeping narrative looks at how Western Europe evolved in the wake of the collapse of the Roman Empire, to produce the ideas, books, buildings, works of art and great individuals that make up our civilisation. The author takes us from Iona in the ninth century to France in the twelfth, from Florence to Urbino, from Germany to Rome, England, Holland and America. Against these historical backgrounds he sketches an extraordinary cast of characters -- the men and women who gave new energy to civilisation and expanded our understanding of the world and of ourselves. He also highlights the works of genius they produced -- in architecture, sculpture and painting, in philosophy, poetry and music, and in science and engineering, from Raphael's School of Athens to the bridges of Brunel.

Jewish Materialism: The Intellectual Revolution of the 1870s

by Eliyahu Stern

A paradigm-shifting account of the modern Jewish experience, from one of the most creative young historians of his generationTo understand the organizing framework of modern Judaism, Eliyahu Stern believes that we should look deeper and farther than the Holocaust, the establishment of the State of Israel, and the influence and affluence of American Jewry. Against the revolutionary backdrop of mid-nineteenth-century Europe, Stern unearths the path that led a group of rabbis, scientists, communal leaders, and political upstarts to reconstruct the core tenets of Judaism and join the vanguard of twentieth-century revolutionary politics. In the face of dire poverty and rampant anti-Semitism, they mobilized Judaism for projects directed at ensuring the fair and equal distribution of resources in society. Their program drew as much from the universalism of Karl Marx and Charles Darwin as from the messianism and utopianism of biblical and Kabbalistic works. Once described as a religion consisting of rituals, reason, and rabbinics, Judaism was now also rooted in land, labor, and bodies. Exhaustively researched, this original, revisionist account challenges our standard narratives of nationalism, secularization, and de-Judaization.
