Hesperus Classics

Published in the U.K. by the Hesperus Press, the Hesperus Classics is a remarkable reissue series. The titles range from minor works by greats such as Charles Dickens (The Haunted House) and Charlotte Brontë to major works by now-neglected authors such as Théophile Gautier and Nikolai Leskov. The books are further enhanced by forewords by an impressive set of contemporary writers, including Doris Lessing, Margaret Drabble, Umberto Eco, and John Updike.
