NEW: Death in Venice, Through the Looking Glass, The Book of Genesis, and Far From the Madding Crowd
Four new books from eNotated Classics:
By Thomas Mann, eNotated by Thomas S. Hansen
By Lewis Carroll, eNotated by Pam Sowers
Published in hundreds of variously illustrated editions reaching millions of readers over generations, “Looking Glass” has over time become less accessible than it was to Carroll’s Victorian contemporaries. Sowers’s eNotations supply the tacit background Alice knew but we don’t, revealing the humor, insight, and fun of this many-layered complex book.
eNotated by Maura O'Neill
Inherent in our human nature is the desire to know our origins, and all peoples and cultures have a story to explain how their life began. One such explanation is found in the first book of the Bible, Genesis, a word meaning “origin.” Not only does this work provide the basis for Jewish and Christian faith, but it also has had a great influence on contemporary Western culture as is evidenced by its adaptations in movies, art, children's literature, and politics.
ByThomas Hardy, eNotated by Howard Barbour
Hardy’s “Far from the Madding Crowd” is perhaps Hardy’s positive Wessex novel - a story of how a single woman struggles to maintain her independence in a patriarcal world - but it is filled with 19th century agricultural terms, geographical and literary references, and Wessex idioms that may be lost to the modern reader. Howard Barbour, born not far from Hardy’s Wessex, grew up listening to stories of late 19th century rural life told by a disappearing generation, and then as a young man worked in and studied agriculture just as the last vestiges of age-old practices were being swept away by the new. In this eNotated edition of “Far from the Madding Crowd” Barbour provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy Hardy’s classic by adding hundreds of electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in Hardy’s original text.
