Materiale linguistico moderno

Lawrence, David Herbert

Lady Chatterley's lover / D. H. Lawrence ; edited with an introduction by Luciana Pirè

Firenze [etc.] : Giunti, 2011

Abstract: 'With a queer obedience, she lay down on the blanket. Then she felt the soft, groping, helplessy desiderous hand touching her body, feeling for her face. The hand stroked her face softly, softly, with infinite soothing and assurance, and at last there was the soft touch of a kiss on her cheek. She lay quite still, in a sort of sleep, in a sort of dream.' In versione integrale, i più grandi classici della letteratura angloamericana in lingua originale. Le opere sono accuratamente commentate e riportano la biografia dei singoli autori.

Thackeray, William Makepeace

Vanity fair : a novel without a hero / William Makepeace Thackeray ; edited with an introduction and notes by John Carey

London : Penguin books, 2001

Abstract: William Makepeace Thackeray's Vanity Fair depicts the anarchic anti-heroine Beky Sharpe cutting a swathe through the eligible young men of Europe, set against a lucid backdrop of war and international chaos. This Penguin Classics edition is edited with an introduction and notes by John Carey. No one is better equipped in the struggle for wealth and worldly success than the alluring and ruthless Becky Sharp, who defies her impoverished background to clamber up the class ladder. Her sentimental companion Amelia Sedley, however, longs only for the caddish soldier George. As the two heroines make their way through the tawdry glamour of Regency society, battles - military and domestic - are fought, fortunes made and lost. The one steadfast and honourable figure in this corrupt world is William Dobbin, devoted to Amelia, bringing pathos and depth to Thackeray's gloriously satirical epic of love and social adventure. Set against the background of the Napoleonic wars, Thackeray's 'novel without a hero' is a lively satirical journey through English society, exposing greed, snobbery and pretension. This edition follows the text of Thackeray's revised edition of 1853.John Carey's introduction identifies Vanity Fair as a landmark in the development of European Realism, and as a reflection of Thackeray's passionate love for another man's wife. William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863) was born and educated to be a gentleman, but gambled away much of his fortune while at Cambridge. He trained as a lawyer before turning to journalism. He was a regular contributor to periodicals and magazines and Vanity Fair was serialised in Punch in (1847-1848). If you enjoyed Vanity Fair you might like Guy de Maupassant's Bel-Ami, also available in Penguin Classics. Vanity Fair has strong claims to be the greatest novel in the English language. It is also the only English novel that challenges comparison with Tolstoy's War and Peace. (John Carey)
