The Lost Hat and Other Stories

by Elizabeth A. Mboya

In all traditions, humans have always expressed themselves in one way or the other. This expression has always been of joy, sorrow, excitement, shock, horror and so on. In the domain of entertainment and leisure, people have always created stories and songs and other artistic and on-artistic forms of amusement. In this book, we have human-animal tales, which is a class of narratives involving both human and animals in the central action of the narrative. The personified animals in this case act side by side the humans, taking and carrying out daily activities as the plot unveils. The stories explore the known and the unknown in a bid to explain, entertain and teach moral values, which are ideal in the modern society for the younger generation. The stories in The lost Hat and Other Stories are tales which I have heard at one time or the other and I have retold them to make them more interesting. After each and every story, there is a set of questions, which help the reader to understand and analyze the text better.

Madame Bovary

by Gustave Flaubert

La novela más conocida de Gustave Flaubert y una de las grandes obras de la literatura universal nos acerca a la historia de Emma Rouault. Una joven de origen campesino y huérfana de madre que contrae matrimonio con el médico Charles Bovary. El afán por ser la protagonista de una vida romántica presidida por el amor, ambición que su marido no puede satisfacer, será la perdición de la ingenua muchacha, que buscará por todos los medios, con aventuras y con amantes, escapar al tedio, la monotonía y la exasperación que se han apoderado de su vida. La presente edición, en reciente traducción de Mauro Armiño, incluye los fragmentos, descubiertos entre los manuscritos de Flaubert, que el autor decidió a última hora no incluir en la novela. Completan el volumen un estudio introductorio de Jacques Neefs, de la Johns Hopkins University, y una cronología flaubertiana. «Intentaba saber qué se entendía exactamente en la vida por las palabras "felicidad", "pasión" y "ebriedad", que tan hermosas le habían parecido en los libros. » ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The notorious and celebrated novel that established modern realism For this novel of French bourgeois life in all its inglorious banality, Flaubert invented a paradoxically original and wholly modern style. His heroine, Emma Bovary, a bored provincial housewife, abandons her husband to pursue the libertine Rodolphe in a desperate love affair. A succès de scandale in its day, Madame Bovary remains a powerful and scintillating novel. This Penguin Classics edition is translated with notes and an introduction by Geoffrey Wall. It includes a preface by Michele Roberts. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.
