In 1890, the thirty-year-old Chekhov, already knowing that he was ill with tuberculosis, undertook an arduous eleven-week journey from Moscow across Siberia to the penal colony on the island of Sakhalin. Now collected here in one volume are the fully annotated translations of his impressions of his trip through Siberia and the account of his three-month sojourn on Sakhalin Island, together with his notes and extracts from his letters to relatives and associates.Highly valuable both as a detailed depiction of the Tsarist system of penal servitude and as an insight into Chekhov's motivations and objectives for visiting the colony and writing the expose, Sakhalin Island is a haunting work which had a huge impact both on Chekhov's career and on Russian society.

The present selection traces the development of Yeats' fully annotated verse, encompassing the poet's interest in Irish folklore and national identity, his engagement with the political situation of his day and the rich symbolism that is the hallmark of his work and a reflection of his lifelong fascination with the occult. It contains some of his best-known pieces, including the elegiac 'Easter 1916', the apocalyptic "e;The Second Coming"e; and the reflective and spiritual "e;Sailing to Byzantium"e;. Often radical in content but always traditional in form, these poems are by turns startling and affecting, and never less than inspired. Taken together, they form an ideal introduction to the poetic career of one of Ireland's greatest literary figures. This edition contains a wealth of material about the author's life and works, extensive notes and a bibliographic section.

Travelling to Italy on their honeymoon, Erszi and Mihaly are ready to take in all the beauties and pleasures of the country. But when they reach Venice, it is clear that Mihaly prefers to roam around the back alleys and the canals on his own, and as they continue their journey through the Bel Paese there is a growing sense of unrest between them, until Mihaly misses the train to Rome they were due to take together. Wandering alone from city to city, with his marriage rapidly falling apart, Mihaly must confront the ghosts of his past and try to find a sense of purpose.Originally written in 1937, and here presented in a brilliant new translation by Peter V. Czipott, Antal Szerb's gently humorous and psychologically subtle exploration into the workings of a budding bourgeois marriage has been hailed as one of the great rediscovered classics of the twentieth century.

When strange things are reported to be floating in rivers in rural Vermont after a flood, old myths about hill-dwelling monsters who abduct humans resurface in subsequent debates, much to the annoyance of local academic Albert N. Wilmarth. However, when he starts receiving letters from a man named Henry Wentworth Akeley about the supposed presence near his farmhouse of an extraterrestrial race worshipping ancient cosmic deities, Wilmarth finds himself drawn into an astonishing correspondence that leads to a harrowing discovery. A seminal early contribution to the horror and science-fiction genres, 'The Whisperer in Darkness' is presented here, along with other classics from the Lovecraft canon - such as 'The Call of Cthulhu', 'The Shadow over Innsmouth', 'The Music of Erich Zann' and 'The Silver Key' - in a brand-new collection showcasing the finest tales from the twentieth century's foremost purveyor of terror.

First published in 1861, Humiliated and Insulted plunges the reader into a world of moral degradation, childhood trauma, unrequited love and irreconcilA-able relationships. At the centre of the story are a young struggling author, an orphaned teenager and a depraved aristocrat, who not only foreshadows the great figures of evil in Dostoevsky's later fiction, but is a powerful and original presence in his own right.This new translation catches the verve and tumult of the original, which - in concept and execution - affords a refreshingly unfamiliar glimpse of the author.

„Was für ein langer Weg es ist von einem Leben zu einem anderen: Doch warum schreiben, wenn nicht wegen dieser Distanz.“ Yiyun Li schreibt – ohne je das Wort zu verwenden – über ihren Selbstmordversuch, über das, was es bedeutet, an der Grenze zwischen Leben und Tod zu stehen. Sie kam als Immunologin von China nach Amerika und entdeckte erst dort, dass das Schreiben eine Form des Widerstands gegen die existenzielle Leere sein kann. In diesem zutiefst bewegenden Buch erzählt Yiyun Li von ihren Depressionen und von jenen Büchern von Stefan Zweig, Elizabeth Bishop und William Trevor, die sie aus ihrer Einsamkeit herausgerissen haben. Ein Buch über die lebensspendende Kraft der Literatur.

"Nächtliche Wege" ist ein Meisterwerk der literarischen Moderne.
