Dante's Divine Comedy, written in the fourteenth century, is certainly one of the greatest epic poems ever written in Italian, and it certainly ranks among the world's greatest literary undertakings. This version, designed to introduce the Divine Comedy to younger readers (but older ones will find it equally readable) tells the story of each of the canticas, or main parts of the Divine Comedy: the Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. The Inferno, possibly the most famous canitca, tells of Dante's journey to the Underworld, accompanied by the poet Virgil. There they see how each class of sinner is punished according to the extent of their misdeeds. Purgatory tells of Dante and Virgil's ascent of the Mountain of Purgatory. It has seven terraces, corresponding to the seven deadly sins: Wrath, Envy, Pride, Sloth, Lust, Gluttony, and Greed. Paradise tells how Beatrice guides Dante into the celestial spheres of Heaven, and finishes with Dante coming before God in person. This marvellous retelling of the Divine Comedy has been completely reset and benefits from a brand new glossary to help guide the modern reader through this classic work. About the author: Mary MacGregor (1874-1961) was one of the most important juvenile historical authors of the early twentieth century. She specialized in classic history and European myths, and achieved fame for her ability to convert complex themes into simple storylines.

In this unforgettable novel of Queen Victoria, Jean Plaidy re-creates a remarkable life filled with romance, triumph, and tragedy. At birth, Princess Victoria was fourth in line for the throne of England, the often-overlooked daughter of a prince who died shortly after her birth. She and her mother lived in genteel poverty for most of her childhood, exiled from court because of her mother’s dislike of her uncles, George IV and William IV. A strong, willful child, Victoria was determined not to be stifled by her powerful uncles or her unpopular, controlling mother. Then one morning, at the age of eighteen, Princess Victoria awoke to the news of her uncle William’s death. The almost-forgotten princess was now Queen of England. Even better, she was finally free of her mother’s iron hand and her uncles’ manipulations. Her first act as queen was to demand that she be given a room—and a bed—of her own. Victoria’s marriage to her German cousin, Prince Albert, was a blissfully happy one that produced nine children. Albert was her constant companion and one of her most trusted advisors. Victoria’s grief after Prince Albert’s untimely death was so shattering that for the rest of her life—nearly forty years—she dressed only in black. She survived several assassination attempts, and during her reign England’s empire expanded around the globe until it touched every continent in the world. Derided as a mere “girl queen” at her coronation, by the end of her sixty-four-year reign, Victoria embodied the glory of the British Empire. In this novel, written as a “memoir” by Victoria herself, she emerges as truthful, sentimental, and essentially human—both a lovable woman and a great queen.
