Summary

Among the most celebrated plays of ancient Athens, Elektra is one of seven surviving dramas by the great Greek playwright, Sophocles, now available from Harper Perennial in a vivid and dynamic new translation by award-winning poet Robert Bagg. Elektra masterfully explores the consequences of revenge—both for those who bear the brunt of violence and for those who become obsessed by hatred under its influence—as it focuses on the cycle of bloodshed that consumes a royal family. This is Sophocles, vibrant and alive, for a new generation.

    Este ebook presenta "Drácula (texto completo, con índice activo)", con un sumario dinámico y detallado.
    Drácula es una novela publicada en 1897 por Bram Stoker, que ha convertido a su protagonista en el vampiro más famoso. Drácula, parte de la existencia de Vlad Tepes, es un personaje histórico situado en la Rumania del siglo XV, y conocido por su heroicidad contra la invasión otomana, pero también por su crueldad. A partir de esta historia y de no pocas leyendas acerca de él, Bram Stoker escribe esta novela en forma de diarios y cartas que los personajes principales van intercambiándose. Una obra trascendental de la literatura gótica que abrió un nuevo camino en la novela de terror y que instauró la figura del aristócrata transilvano como arquetipo del mal y modelo de seducción perversa.
    Bram Stoker (1847 - 1912) fue un novelista y escritor irlandés. En su momento fue conocido como el asistente personal del actor Henry Irving y como el gerente del Teatro Lyceum de Londres (del que Irving era dueño), pero hoy en día se le recuerda por la creación de una de las historias de terror más influyentes de todos los tiempos, su novela Drácula, basada en la figura legendaria de Vlad Tepes.

    What if Lydia never eloped with Mr. Wickham and Elizabeth enjoyed many pleasant days at Pemberley with Mr. Darcy—only to never see him again? 
    What if, around Valentine’s Day, their paths would come to cross once more? 
    It has been months since Elizabeth last saw Mr. Darcy. Despite her sister’s recent engagement to Mr. Bingley, the gentleman in question has hardly been seen around Hertfordshire—much to Elizabeth’s disappointment. The man has haunted her thoughts for the past months and when she discovers that Mr. Darcy is the one behind her sister’s impending happiness, her conscience demands that she apologize to the man for her crude behaviour. Determined to make everything right by Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth decides to send him a Valentine—a secret letter of her appreciation. 
    It is slightly out of place and more than a bit inappropriate as they are not betrothed, but what could possibly go wrong with an innocent Valentine? 
    Mr. Darcy’s Valentine is a sweet, clean romance novella centering around our dear couple, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Suitable for all lovers of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
