O Cruel Alexis




Little Black Classics - the new series to celebrate Penguin's 80th anniversary

'But I, while vineyards ring with the cicadas' scream,
Retrace your steps, alone, beneath the burning sun.'
Virgil's lyrical, wistful and often witty pastoral poems.

Introducing Little Black Classics: 80 books for Penguin's 80th birthday. Little Black Classics celebrate the huge range and diversity of Penguin Classics, with books from around the world and across many centuries. They take us from a balloon ride over Victorian London to a garden of blossom in Japan, from Tierra del Fuego to 16th-century California and the Russian steppe. Here are stories lyrical and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions.
