• Saint Joan (Penguin Classics)

    One of Shaw’s most unusual and enduringly popular plays. With SAINT JOAN (1923) Shaw reached the height of his fame and Joan is one of his finest creations; forceful, vital, and rebelling against the values that surround her. The play distils Shaw’s views on the subjects of politics, religion and creative evolution.

  • Lord of the Flies

    A plane crashes on a desert island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast. As the boys’ delicate sense of order fades, so their childish dreams are transformed into something more primitive, and their behaviour starts to take on a murderous, savage significance. First published in 1954, “Lord of the Flies” is one of the most celebrated and widely read of modern classics.

  • Pride and Prejudice (Penguin Classics)

    Few readers have failed to be charmed by the witty and independent spirit of Elizabeth Bennet. Her early determination to dislike Mr Darcy – who is quite the most handsome and eligible bachelor in the whole of English literature – is a misjudgement only matched by Darcy’s arrogant pride. Their first impressions give way to truer feelings in a comedy profoundly concerned with happiness and how it might be achieved.

    Vivien Jones, in her new introduction to this Penguin Classics edition, shows how their romance is inseparable from the important and social political debates of Austen’s time, and describes Pride and Prejudice as ‘One of the most perfect, most pleasurable and most subtle – and therefore, perhaps, most dangerously persuasive – of romantic love stories.’
