Penguin Classic Best Books Recommendation

BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL (Penguin Classics) by Friedrich Nietzsche

Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche is a notable work that challenges traditional Western thought with its critique of truth, God, good, and evil. It explores the Christian world's false piety and slave morality', turning from critique to a philosophy that celebrates the present and demands individual 'will to power' upon the world. This edition includes a commentary on the text by the translator and Michael Tanner's introduction, explaining some of the more abstract passages in Beyond Good and Evil.

 

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (Penguin Classics) by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Raskolnikov, a destitute former student, commits a random murder without remorse or regret, but finds himself pursued by his conscience and guilt. Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, offers the chance of redemption. David McDuff's vivid translation of Dostoyevsky's great novel, Dostoyevsky's great novel, renders its dialogue with a unique force and naturalism.

 

DRACULA (Penguin Classics) by Bram Stoker

In this updated edition, Maurice Hindle has revised his introduction, list of further reading and textual notes, and added two new appendices: Stoker's essay on censorship and his interview with Winston Churchill, both published in 1908. Christopher Frayling's preface discusses Stoker's significance and the influences that contributed to his creation of the Dracula myth.
