  • Introductory Lectures on Aestheticsby Georg Hegel; Michael Inwood; Bernard Bosanquet

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; US$ 15.50

    No philosopher has held a higher opinion of art than Hegel, yet nor was any so profoundly pessimistic about its prospects - despite living in the German golden age of Goethe, Mozart and Schiller. For if the artists of classical Greece could find the perfect fusion of content and form, modernity faced complicating - and ultimately disabling - questions.... more...

  • Draculaby Bram Stoker

    Random House Publishing Group 2000; US$ 12.00

    Of the many admiring reviews Bram Stoker?s Dracula received when it first appeared in 1897, the most astute praise came from the author's mother, who wrote her son: 'It is splendid.

  • The Screwtape Lettersby C. S. Lewis

    HarperCollins 2009; US$ 8.99
