Fred Vargas - Il Morso della Reclusa (2018)

Nebbioso, beccheggiante, indolente. Sempre perso nelle sue vaghezze. È il commissario Adamsberg, capo dell'Anticrimine al tredicesimo arrondissement parigino. - Non ci posso credere, - disse Danglard, - non ci voglio credere. Torni fra noi, commissario. Ma in quali nebbie ha perso la vista, porca miseria? - Nella nebbia ci vedo benissimo, - replicò Adamsberg in tono un po' secco, appoggiando i palmi sul tavolo. - Anzi, meglio che alt...

The Complete Poetry of Percy Bysshe Shelley

Writing to his publisher in 1813, Shelley expressed the hope that two of his major works "should form one volume"; nearly two centuries later, the second volume of the Johns Hopkins edition of The Complete Poetry fulfills that wish for the first time. This volume collects two important pieces: Queen Mab and The Esdaile Notebook. Privately issued in 1813, Queen Mab was perhaps Shelley's most intellectually ambitious work, articulating...
