    Shakespeare’s renowned tragedy about the destruction wrought by ambition and jealousy. Othello, a Moor and general in the Venetian army, has just eloped with Desdemona, the daughter of a senator. Simultaneously, seeds of doubt are planted in Othello’s mind by the scheming Iago—an ensign who seethes with ambition and resentment—with assistance from Iago’s wealthy friend who wanted Desdemona for himself. Behind the scenes, Iago’s machinations are designed to sow discord and, ultimately, convince Othello that his wife is unfaithful—and the consequences will be tragic.

    Like most of us in our twenties, Helga Crane, our American heroine and teacher in the rural South; is filled with the desire to be more than she is and to feel the world more intensely... She therefore dismisses her native Chicago, New York's Harlem, Copenhagen even. She also passes on opportunities for extended family, for marriage, and for true love. What is always latent in this truly remarkable work; is how much the background of 1920's American racial segregation defines Helga's malaise, and how much—paradoxically—is of her own doing... The title of this novel is tragically appropriate: living in a country with so much unresolved tensions, so much injustice and hypocrisy and violence could very well feel like walking in quicksand.

    The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are overshadowed by the event with which they close-the meeting of the great detective and Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime. When "The Final Problem" was first published, the struggle between Holmes and his arch nemesis, seemingly to the death, left many readers desolate at the loss of Holmes, but it also led to his immortality as a literary figure. The stories that precede it included two narratives from Holmes himself-on a mutiny at sea and a treasure hunt in a Sussex country house-as well as a meeting with his brilliant brother Mycroft.Included in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are "Silver Blaze," "The Yellow Face," "The Stock-Broker's Clerk," "The 'Gloria Scott,'" "The Musgrave Ritual," "The Reigate Puzzle," "The Crooked Man," "The Resident Patient," "The Greek Interpreter," "The Naval Treaty," and "The Final Problem."

    The Scarlet Letter is generally considered to be Nathaniel Hawthorne’s masterpiece. Set in 17th century Boston, it follows the plight of Hester Prynne, a young woman who bears a child out of wedlock, refuses to name the  father, and is condemned to wear a scarlet ‘A’ for the rest of her life. With The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne reaches back to America’s Puritan roots to probe themes of lust, sin, guilt and redemption. This Essential Classics edition includes a new introduction by Professor Vivian Heller, Ph.D. in literature and modern studies from Yale University.Born in 1804, Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote at the forefront of dark romanticism. His renderings of colonial America reflect the strictures of New England Puritanism and give voice to characters who try to extricate themselves from social conventions.Vivian Heller received her Ph.D. in English Literature and Modern Studies from Yale University. She is author of Joyce, Decadence, and Emancipation(University of Illinois Press) and of The City Beneath Us   (W.W. Norton & Company), a history of the building of the New York City subway system.  She is an associate at Columbia’s School of Professional Studies and is the writing tutor for the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College.
