Series Spotlight: The World Classics Library

The World Classics Library

The World Classics Library series gathers together the work of authors and philosophers whose ideas have stood the test of time. Perfect for bibliophiles, these gorgeous jacketed hardbacks are a wonderful addition to any bookshelf.

The World Classics Library is a new series from Arcturus that brings readers compilations of key works by some of the greatest writers from across the ages. Both fiction and non-fiction are represented in the first eight titles. They include a trio of novels by one of Russia’s master storytellers, Fyodor Dostoevsky; Homer’s great epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey; entertaining tales from two of America’s literary giants – Mark Twain and Henry James; and a set of thrilling adventures by the father of science fiction, H. G. Wells.

Among the non-fiction collections on offer, there is a thought-provoking set of works in Eastern Philosophy that offers words of wisdom on everything from the beauty of life to the great stratagems of war and combat; the dialogues of Plato, often considered the founder of Western philosophy; and three influential works from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
