"Prior to my job application, I almost forgot to mention one of my favorite books by George Orwell: 1984, which I happened to revisit before my interview with the gallery. The message of Orwell is very relevant today and it should be a must read on everyone's list. Little did I know that his clear vision of 'Big brother is watching' will become a way of life in the 21st century. I must say, I had no idea how powerful big brother can be and how much his lit...

A Selection of Satirical and Licentious Verse of John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester (The Reader's Library Book 7)

by John Wilmot 2nd Earl of Rochester and Neil Azevedo

A thoroughly representative selection of the poetry of Sir John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester.

Romeo and Juliet (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

by William Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers.Romeo and Juliet belongs to a tradition of tragic romances stretching back to antiquity. The plot is based on an Italian tale translated into verse as The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet by Arthur Brooke in 1562 and retold in prose in Palace of Pleasure by William Painter in 1567. Shakespeare borrowed heavily from both but expanded the plot by developing a number of supporting characters, particularly Mercutio a...
