Romanzo epistolare pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1774 e rielaborato nell'edizione attuale nel 1782. E' un romanzo in lettere e note con un solo corrispondente. Lo spunto era dato dalla personale storia amorosa per Charlotte Buff, dal momento della nascente passione fino all'inevitabile doloroso distacco. Con il "Werther" nasce il romanzo moderno e si pongono le basi del romanticismo intimistico. Dall'incipit del libro: "Come sono lieto di esser partito! Amico carissimo, che è mai il cuore dell'uomo! Ho lasciato te che amo tanto, dal quale ero inseparabile, e sono lieto! Pure so che tu mi perdonerai. Tutte le altre persone che conoscevamo non sembravano forse scelte apposta dal destino per angosciare un cuore come il mio? Povera Eleonora! Eppure io ero innocente. Che potevo fare se mentre le grazie capricciose di sua sorella mi procuravano un piacevole passatempo, in quel povero cuore nasceva una passione? Ma... sono proprio del tutto innocente? Non ho forse alimentato i suoi sentimenti? Non mi sono dilettato delle sue sincere, ingenue espressioni che tanto spesso ci facevano ridere, e che erano invece così poco risibili?"

Ugo Foscolo's Last Letters of Jacopo Ortis, written between 1799 and 1815, was the first true Italian novel. Its epistolary form is in the eighteenth-century tradition of novels like Clarissa Harlowe and the Nouvelle Heloise. Jacopo's tragic love for Teresa and his subsequent suicide recall The Sorrows of Young Werther. In addition to being an intensely political novel, this work also expresses the author's romantic conception of nature as a mirror of human emotions.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM FILM MOVEMENT It's the spring of 2001. Drew Hagel has spent the last decade watching things slip away—his marriage, his real estate brokerage, and his beloved daughter, Shannon, now a distant and mysterious high school senior. But as summer approaches, Drew forms an unexpected friendship with Quint Manning, the manager of a secretive hedge fund. Drew sees the friendship leading to vast, frictionless wealth, but Drew doesn't know that Manning has problems of his own: his Midas touch is abandoning him, his restless wife has grown disillusioned, and his hard-drinking son is careening out of control. As the fortunes of the Hagels and the Mannings collide, a terrible accident gives Drew the leverage he needs to stay in the game. At once brilliantly observed and masterfully paced, Human Capital "deftly slices open the rich, corrupt heart of suburban America and lets its dark secrets bleed out" (Elle).

Ideas in Profile: Small Introductions to Big Topics Art has always been part of history. But we often think of it as outside history. When we look at a painting by Raphael, Rembrandt or Rubens it speaks to us directly, but it's also an historical document, part of a living world. Renowned art historian Martin Kemp takes the reader on an extraordinary trip through art, from devotional works to the revolutionary techniques of the Renaissance, from the courtly Masters of the seventeenth century through to the daring avant-garde of the twentieth century and beyond. Along the way we encounter the great names of art history: Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo; Vermeer and Velasquez; Picasso and Pollock. We get under the skin of the many 'isms', schools, styles and epochs. We see the complex sweep of art history with its innovations, collaborations, rivalries, break-throughs and masterpieces. Above all, Kemp puts art in context; art isn't about disembodied images, art itself is history. Part of the Ideas in Profile series, uniquely enlivened with animations and illustrations from the award winning studio Cognitive Media, Art in History is an indispensable, accessible and richly detailed guide to our culture, our history, our heritage and our art. Also available in two ebook formats. Please note that ISBN 9781782831020 is for the usual ebook format and 9781781254110 is for an enhanced edition with additional video and audio which should be used only with tablet devices that are capable of playing this additional content.

The strikingly original ninth book in Roberto Calasso’s monumental exploration of civilization The ninth part of Roberto Calasso’s monumental work in progress, The Unnamable Present, resonates deeply with the first book, The Ruin of Kasch (originally published in 1983, and recently reissued by FSG in a new translation). But while Kasch is an iconoclastic exploration of modern civilization, The Unnamable Present propels us into the twentieth century. Tourists, terrorists, secularists, hackers, fundamentalists, humanists—these are all tribes that inhabit and stir up the unnamable present. But for most everyone else, this is a world that is more elusive than ever before, one that "has no style of its own and uses every style," one that is impossible to grasp in its entirety. This is a world that seems to have no definition or past, but is suddenly illuminated when from behind it the silhouette of history emerges—especially of that period between 1933 and 1945, when the world itself was bent on self-annihilation. W. H. Auden gave the title “The Age of Anxiety” to a long poem set toward the end of the war. Today those voices sound more remote, as if they came from another realm. And though the anxiety hasn’t diminished, it no longer predominates. What predominates is something inchoate—and occasionally lethal. The Unnamable Present a globe-spanning meditation on how previously recognizable institutions of societal control, terror, history, religion, language, and government have scattered and reformed to create a reality that takes its shape from shapelessness itself. Translated with sensitivity by Calasso’s longtime translator, Richard Dixon, The Unnamable Present is a strikingly original and provocative triumph from the writer The Paris Review called “a literary institution of one.”
