    This famous work by Leo Tolstoy was one of the masterpieces of his late fiction, written shortly after his religious conversion of the late 1870s. Such is the power of this novel that it was acclaimed by both Vladimir Nabokov and Mahatma Gandhi as the greatest in the whole of Russian literature. The novel tells the story of the life and death, at the age of 45, of a high-court judge in 19th-century Russia - a miserable husband, proud father, and upwardly-mobile member of Russia's professional class, the object of Tolstoy's unremitting satire.

    The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, is considered to be one of the greatest examples of true American literature. Its excellency of topic, characterization, and description has made it a permanent part of our history. Set in Salem, Massachusetts in the 1600s, it describes the life of Hester Prynne, a Puritan woman whose existence is marred by sin. The real genius of the book is found in its description.

    In this 1860s Russian classic, Bazarov (the prototypical nihilist) argues with Pavel Kirsanov (the prototypical liberal of the 1840s generation) about the nature of nihilism and its usefulness to Russia, in an episode which personifies the struggle between the fathers (i.e., the liberals of the 1840s) and their nihilist "sons".

    The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, a story about a London lawyer, Gabriel John Utterson, who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Edward Hyde, ranks as one of the greatest horror stories to emerge from the late 19th century. The work is known for its vivid portrayal of a split personality - split in the sense that within the same person there is both an apparently good and an evil personality, each being quite distinct from the other.
