Hell hath no fury . . . Damian, Earl of Windermere, rues the day he drunkenly gambled away his family's estate and was forced into marriage to reclaim it. Now, after hiding out from his new bride for a year, Damian is finally called home, only to discover that his modest bride has become an alluring beauty—and rumor has it that she's taken a lover. Damian vows to keep his wife from straying again, but to do so he must seduce her—and protect his heart from falling for the wife he never knew he wanted. Lady Cynthia never aspired to be the subject of scandal. Lady Cynthia never aspired to be the subject of scandal. But with her husband off gallivanting across Persia, what was a lady to do? Flirting shamelessly with his former best friend seemed like the perfect revenge . . . except no matter how little Damian deserves her loyalty, Cynthia can't bring herself to be unfaithful. But now that the scoundrel has returned home, Cynthia isn't about to forgive his absence so easily—even if his presence stirs something in her she'd long thought dead and buried. He might win her heart . . . if he can earn her forgiveness!

“Lady Windermere's Fan, A Play About a Good Woman” is a play in four-acts by Oscar Wilde, first produced in 1892. It is a tale of scandal and the fall of a woman from grace in a hypocritical and absurdly contradictory high society. A sharp comedy packed full of the cutting witticisms and powerful aphorisms for which Wilde is famous, “Lady Windermere's Fan” is not to be missed by fans of the stage and of Wilde's seminal work in particular. Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish novelist, playwright, poet, and essayist. Although he produced work in many forms, he is best remembered for being one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s, as well as for his world-famous novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. Other notable works by this author include: “The Happy Prince and Other Stories” (1888), “A Woman of No Importance” (1893), and “The Importance of Being Earnest” (published 1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

At the time of the writing of this play, Oscar Wilde was staying with his friends in North England. Several of the characters in the play have the names which resemble the names of several lakes and towns. Since “Lady Windermere’s Fan” is a social satire, it attacks the contemporary aristocratic society, which Oscar Wilde describes as double-faced. The play is also knows for the playwright’s ideas about aestheticism.

Wanted: Governess able to keep all hours . . . Rebellious Julian Fortescue never expected to inherit a dukedom, nor to find himself guardian to three young half-sisters. Now in the market for a governess, he lays eyes on Jane Grey and knows immediately she is qualified—to become his mistress. Yet the alluring woman appears impervious to him. Somehow Julian must find a way to make her succumb to temptation . . . without losing his heart and revealing the haunting mistakes of his past. Desired: Duke skilled in the seductive art of conversation . . . Lady Jeanne de Falleron didn't seek a position as a governess simply to fall into bed with the Duke of Denford. Under the alias of Jane Grey, she must learn which of the duke's relatives is responsible for the death of her family—and take her revenge. She certainly can't afford the distraction of her darkly irresistible employer, or the smoldering desire he ignites within her . But as Jane discovers more clues about the villain she seeks, she's faced with a possibility more disturbing than her growing feelings for Julian: What will she do if the man she loves is also the man she's sworn to kill?

Philosophy, art criticism and popular opinion all seem to treat the aesthetics of the comic as lightweight, while the tragic seems to be regarded with greater seriousness. Why this favouring of sadness over joy? Can it be justified? What are the criteria by which the significance of comedy can be estimated vis à vis tragedy? Questions such as these underlie the present selection of studies, which casts new light on the comic, the joyful and laughter itself. This challenge to the popular attitude strikes into new territory, relating such matters to the profundity with which we enjoy life and its role in the deployment of the Human Condition. In her Introduction Tymieniecka points out that the tragic and the comic might be complementary in their respective sense-bestowing modes as well as in their dynamic functions; they might both share in the primogenital function of promoting the self-individualising progress of human existence. For the first time in philosophy, laughter, mirth, joy and the like are revealed as the modalities of the essential enjoyment of life, being brought to bear in an illumination of the human condition.

Mrs. Allonby. What a comfort it is to have got rid of the men for a little! Lady Stutfield. Yes; men persecute us dreadfully, don’t they? Mrs. Allonby. Persecute us? I wish they did. Lady Hunstanton. My dear! Mrs. Allonby. The annoying thing is that the wretches can be perfectly happy without us. That is why I think it is every woman’s duty never to leave them alone for a single moment, except during this short breathing space after dinner; without which I believe we poor women would be absolutely worn to shadows. [Enter Servants with coffee.] Lady Hunstanton. Worn to shadows, dear? Mrs. Allonby. Yes, Lady Hunstanton. It is such a strain keeping men up to the mark. They are always trying to escape from us. Lady Stutfield. It seems to me that it is we who are always trying to escape from them. Men are so very, very heartless. They know their power and use it. Lady Caroline. [Takes coffee from Servant.] What stuff and nonsense all this about men is! The thing to do is to keep men in their proper place. Mrs. Allonby. But what is their proper place, Lady Caroline? Lady Caroline. Looking after their wives, Mrs. Allonby.

De Profundis and Other Prison Writings is a new selection of Oscar Wilde's prison letters and poetry in Penguin Classics, edited and introduced by Colm Tóibín. At the start of 1895, Oscar Wilde was the toast of London, widely feted for his most recent stage success, An Ideal Husband. But by May of the same year, Wilde was in Reading prison sentenced to hard labour. 'De Profundis' is an epistolic account of Oscar Wilde's spiritual journey while in prison, and describes his new, shocking conviction that 'the supreme vice is shallowness'. This edition also includes further letters to his wife, his friends, the Home Secretary, newspaper editors and his lover Lord Alfred Douglas - Bosie - himself, as well as 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol', the heart-rending poem about a man sentenced to hang for the murder of the woman he loved. This Penguin edition is based on the definitive Complete Letters, edited by Wilde's grandson Merlin Holland. Colm Tóibín's introduction explores Wilde's duality in love, politics and literature. This edition also includes notes on the text and suggested further reading. Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin. His three volumes of short fiction, The Happy Prince, Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and A House of Pomegranates, together with his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, won him a reputation as a writer with an original talent, a reputation enhanced by the phenomenal success of his society comedies - Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest. Colm Tóibín is the author of five novels, including The Blackwater Lightship and The Master, and a collection of stories, Mothers and Sons. His essay collection Love in a Dark Time: Gay Lives from Wilde to Almodovar appeared in 2002. He is the editor of The Penguin Book of Irish Fiction.

Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence. The narrative concerns Lady Chatterley, a young, middle-class married woman whose husband has been paralysed from the waist down after a grievous war injury. On top of the obvious physical problems this caused, he also emotionally neglected his wife, which caused a deep rift between the two. Eventually, this leads to Lady Chatterley’s having an affair with her lower-class gamekeeper, which brings to the foreground the major motifs of the play: class dominance, and the inability to live happily with the mind alone. A masterful piece of literature sure to appeal to the discerning reader, Lady Chatterley’s Lover is a worthy addition to any bookshelf and is not to be missed by fans or collectors of Lawrence's prolific work. This book was originally published in 1920, and we are proud to republish it here complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
