    A sharply witty novel about social ambitions and artistic pretensions by the author of Brave New World. The widowed Mrs. Aldwinkle will tell anyone who will listen of her love for art, and in a quest to surround herself with her intellectual equals, she invites an entourage to an Italian palace. One guest, who supports his poetry habit by editing a magazine for rabbit fanciers, will become the target of her amorous advances. Another guest will use the opportunity to embark on an affair in order to mine it for literary material, while yet another chases after a vulnerable heiress. A sparkling satire of the cultural elite, Those Barren Leaves is as entertaining and relevant today as when it was originally published. “Extremely clever, with the brilliance we have come to associate with this author.” —The New York Times

    "The Tragedy of Macbeth" is a play written by William Shakespeare. Set mainly in Scotland, the play illustrates the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake.The play was most likely written during the reign of James I, who had been James VI of Scotland before he succeeded to the English throne in 1603. James was a patron of Shakespeare's acting company and of all the plays Shakespeare wrote during James's reign, "Macbeth" most clearly reflects the playwright's relationship with the sovereign."Macbeth" is Shakespeare's shortest tragedy, and tells the story of a brave Scottish general named Macbeth who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of arrogance, madness, and death.This is a detailed summary of the play, retold in today's language.

    "Our revels now are ended... this rough magic I here abjure..." 
    In Shakespeare hinting at the end of his own magnificent career in these and others lines spoken by the great magician, Prospero? The Tempest was the last of Shakespeare's comedies, completed just before he retired to his native Stratford-upon-Avon; perhaps this delightful comedy was intended to signal the playwright's farewell to his beloved theater. The Tempest reflects Shakespeare's mature genius, with its story of innocence tempered by intrigue, hilarity bounded by melancholy. Audiences the world over still thrill to The Tempest's dark comedy and magical fantasy. 
    Sir Michael Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave helped to build one of England's foremost theatrical families-- a tradition that Ms. Redgrave continues today. And Hugh Griffith is one of the nation's greatest character actors. Together, they bring The Tempest majestically to life.

    In this classic by the author of The Thirty-Nine Steps, a retiring hero’s past draws him into an action-packed adventure capped by a deadly standoff. A long-forgotten promise made by Richard Hannay finds him honor-bound to resolve a violent vendetta endangering the lives of a young father and his daughter from unscrupulous and desperate men. Hannay sets out on a high-octane chase from the rural tranquility of his English manor to the Scottish Borders, and ultimately to Scandinavia. On the remote Island of Sheep, a final confrontation begins, and everything will be decided, once and for all . . . This, the last of the Hannay adventures—and the last of Buchan’s novels to be published during his lifetime—is a rare gem of high drama interwoven with Buchan’s personal beliefs about the problems of a post-war world.Previously published as The Man from the Norlands
