Sweeney Todd The String of Pearls

Sweeney Todd The String of Pearls


With a New Introduction by Dick Collins. The exploits of Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street , have been recounted many times in plays, films and musicals, but the origins of the character largely were forgotten for many years.

The String of Pearls - the original tale of Sweeney Todd, a classic of British horror - was first published as a weekly serial in 1846-7 by Edward Lloyd, the King of the Penny Dreadfuls. One of the earliest detective stories, it became an important source for Bram Stoker\'s Dracula, but it was after over 150 years of obscurity that it appeared first in book form in the Wordsworth edition published in 2005.

The one great mystery that has surrounded the book is who the author was - or was it possibly the work of more than one man? In his new introduction.

The name Edgar Allan Poe conjures up thoughts of hearts beating long after their owners are dead, of disease and plague amid wealth, and of love that extends beyond the grave. The richness of Poe\'s writing, however, includes much more than horror, loss, and death.

Poe\'s stories teem with irony and black humor, in addition to plot twists and surprise endings. Living by their own rules and charged with passion, Poe\'s characters are instantly recognizable - even though we may be appalled by their actions, we understand their motivations.

This collection contains eleven of Poe\'s best stories. They are \"The Fall of the House of Usher,\" \"The Pit and the Pendulum,\" \"The Tell-Tale Heart,\" \"The Cask of Amontillado,\" \"The Premature Burial,\" \"Ligeia,\" \"The Black Cat,\" \"The Oval.

James Fenimore Cooper was a prolific and popular American writer of the first half of the 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. Precaution is the first novel written by Cooper written in imitation of Jane Austen\'s novels of English gentry manners. It is mainly interesting today as a document in the history of American cultural colonialism and as an example of an attempt to imitate Jane Austen\'s investigation of the ironic discrepancy between illusion and reality.

When Lolita was first published in 1955 it created a sensation and established Nabokov as one of the most original prose writers of the twentieth century. This annotated edition, a revised and considerably expanded version of the 1970 edition, does full justice to the textual riches of Lolita, illuminating the elaborate verbal textures and showing how they contribute to the novel\'s overall meaning.

Alfred Appel, Jr. also provides fresh observations on the novel\'s artifice, games and verbal patternings and a delightful biographical vignette of Nabokov.

The annotations themselves were prepared in consultation with Nabokov while newly identified allusions were confirmed by him during the final years of his life.
