The Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan (1480-1521) is one of the most famous navigators in history-he was the first man to sail from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, and led the first voyage to circumnavigate the globe, although he was killed en route in a battle in the Philippines. In this biography, Zweig brings to life the Age of Discovery by telling the tale of one of the era's most daring adventurers, whose astounding feats of navigation heralded the modern age.

Being and Time
A revised translation of Heidegger's most important work.
Swann s Way
Graham Greene called Proust the "greatest novelist of the 20th century," and W. Somerset Maugham called this novel the "greatest fiction to date." Proust died before he was able to complete his revision of the drafts and proofs of the final volumes, the last three of which were published posthumously. The novel has had a great influence on Twentieth Century literature, and writers ever since have sought to emulate its introspective psychological approach. Proust explores the themes of time, space and memory but the novel is above all an example of innumerable literary, structural, stylistic and thematic possibilities. A monumental French masterpiece of world literature.
