    Synopsis
    Laughter is unique to man. This delightful anthology presents some of the funniest extracts in English literature. David Timson starts with Anglo-Saxon riddles and continues with medieval memories, Tudor comic turns, and Restoration buffoonery. The rise of the novel in the eighteenth century brought classic humour from Swift, Sterne, and Smollet, passing the mantle to Charles Dickens in the nineteenth century. Included here are rarities as well, from the antiquarian's cupboard. There are also excerpts from children's literature and twentieth-century classics as diverse as Dorothy Parker and P.G. Wodehouse. An entertainment from start to finish.

    We have met the intrepid hunter-tracker Allan Quatermain before, in Rider Haggard's marvellous King Solomon's Mines. This time, grieving from the tragic loss of his son, Quatermain longs to return to his beloved Africa. He sets out in search of a lost white tribe, the Zu-Vendis, ruled by two beautiful sister Queens. Once again, Quatermain's companions are the indefatigable Sir Henry Curtis and Captain Good, and the magnificent Zulu warrior Umslopogaas. The journey is incredibly dangerous, and thrillingly told. After a fantastic underground journey by canoe, our heroes are embroiled in a bloody civil war when both queens fall in love with the irresistibly handsome Curtis.

    Synopsis
    Conan Doyle (1859-1930) will always be remembered for the character of Sherlock Holmes, but he was a prolific writer—of short stories, of science fiction and historical fiction1including The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard. In his comprehensive biography, Pearson considers how his life is reflected in his books—including his background as a doctor and his enduring (and public) belief in spiritualism.

    Learn More
    Synopsis
    Barnaby Rudge, one of only two historical novels by Dickens, deals with the 'Popery' riots of 1780. Read here by one of Britain's most popular readers, Sean Barrett, (his reading of Bleak House was widely praised) in a useful abridgement.

  • Barry Lyndon
    Barry Lyndon William Makepeace Thackeray
    Narrator:
    Jonathan Keeble
    Learn More
    Synopsis
    Like Tom Jones before him, Barry Lyndon is one of the most lively and roguish characters in English literature. He may now be best known through the colorful Stanley Kubrick film released in 1975, but it is Thackeray who, in true 19th-century style, shows the darker side of this 18th-century hero; hence it remains a startling novel. Following the death of an English officer, Barry flees his native Ireland and attempts to establish himself as one of England's aristocratic elite. Through backstabbing and scheming he reaches the level of society to which he always aspired. However, intent on criticizing the period's social order, Thackeray ensures that this success is soon followed by the hero's ultimate decline. Jonathan Keeble's energetic reading imbues the period with color and illuminates the sheer inventiveness of Thackeray's literary and topical satire.
  • Bartleby the Scrivener and Other Stories
    Bartleby the Scrivener and Other Stories Herman Melville
    Narrator:
    William Roberts
    Learn More
    Synopsis
    Melville's Bartleby is a classic American short story, a strange tale of an assiduous copyist whose catch-phrase is 'I would prefer not to.' It is joined here by two other stories from The Piazza Tales, Melville's idiosyncratic collection: The Lightning-Rod Man, and The Bell-Tower.
  • Ben Hur
    Ben Hur Lew Wallace
    Narrator:
    Jeff Harding
    Learn More
    Synopsis
    Ben Hur could be said to be the first blockbuster. When it was published in 1880, it sold over two million copies and was translated into numerous languages. It combines all the best elements of popular classic, epic, and action story against a background of authoritative historical detail. The pace and immediacy of Ben Hur was the basis of its appeal to film-makers—Charlton Heston's portrayal of the title role is one of the classics of the cinema. Wallace's original novel has been largely forgotten now, but as this vivid reading shows, the story—together with the sweeping rhythm of the writer's prose—make it ideally suited to the audiobook.

    Narrator:
    Alex Jennings
    Roy McMillan
    Learn More
    Synopsis
    Continuing where Thus Spoke Zarathustra left off, Nietzsche's controversial work Beyond Good and Evil is one of the most influential philosophical texts of the nineteenth century and one of the most controversial works of ideology ever written. Attacking the notion of morality as nothing more than institutionalised weakness, Nietzsche criticises past philosophers for their unquestioning acceptance of moral precepts. Nietzsche tried to formulate what he called 'the philosophy of the future.' Alex Jennings reads this new translation by Ian Johnston.

But when the plotters capture Drummond's wife, the game is up…isn't it? Undaunted, charming, brave, and resourceful, Bulldog Drummond is an archetypal English adventure hero, and the forerunner of The Saint and James Bond.

    When tulip-grower Cornelius van Baerle is framed for treason and sentenced to death, he is powerless against the brutal factional politics that put him in prison. But Rosa, the jailer's daughter, is beautiful and strong-willed, and when they fall in love she determines not only to save him but also to grow the near mythical flower: the black tulip. Set in the savage turmoil of Holland's late 17th century, this intimate novel celebrates the power of integrity over obsession, and tolerance over violence; and it creates in the black tulip a symbol of humanity's potential.

    Constantine Gregory

    Synopsis
    Fyodor Dostoyevsky is a titanic figure among the world's great authors, and The Brothers Karamazov is often hailed as his finest novel.

Like the teaching itself, this work covers every aspect of life.
