Season of Secrets Pan Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Sweeping from the Great War, through the Jazz Age to the 1940s, this unforgettable tale follows the entwined lives of the Fentons, an aristocratic family from Yorkshire. Thea, the eldest daughter of Viscount Gilbert Fenton, flouts the unwritten rules of her class by embarking on a love affair with Hal, the fiercely socialist son of one of her father's tenant farmers. Carrie, her close childhood friend and granddaughter of the Viscount's nanny, has always been expected to marry Hal - but when she goes into service she finds herself longing for the one person she can never hope to marry. Olivia, the middle Fenton sister, follows a more conventional path, forging friendships with the British royal family and attending a finishing school in Germany. Her relationship with Count von der Schulenburg does not raise eyebrows, but as the mid-1930s approach, she finds herself in a country experiencing rapid, radical and dangerous social change. Violet, the youngest of the Fenton sisters, is also the most reckless. She dreams of becoming an actress in Hollywood, unaware her life will be filled with more drama than any part she will ever play. And then there is Rozalind, their American cousin, who is secretly in love with a married U.S. senator. Her ambitions to become a photojournalist will also take her into the heart of Hitler's Germany. Set against the rich canvas of the first half of the twentieth century, A Season of Secrets is an unforgettable tale of passion and betrayal, love and war.

Excerpt from Diantha's Quest: A Tale of the Argonauts of '49 One April day, in the year 1849, a little girl, dressed daintily, if cheaply, in gaily flowered calico, sat drawing with a pointed stick in the clean sand at her feet. She wore a straw sun-bonnet pulled well over her face and seemed quite oblivious to the activities of the strange camp not far away. There many men and women, already accustomed to life under canvas, were making bread, washing clothes, scouring tins, mending harness, repairing the high tops of their wagons; busy, in a hundred ways, with the homely tasks which were their daily portion. Dotted here and there over the broad plains, stretching out like a green carpet to the west, were knots of cattle, mules, oxen and horses grazing under the watchful eyes of mounted attendants. Behind the camp, separated from it by the river, was the little town of St. Joseph, the last center of civilization that these Argonauts were to see for many a weary day.

In Giuseppe Arcimboldo's most famous paintings, grapes, fish, and even the beaks of birds form human hair. A pear stands in for a man's chin. Citrus fruits sprout from a tree trunk that doubles as a neck. All sorts of natural phenomena come together on canvas and panel to assemble the strange heads and faces that constitute one of Renaissance art's most striking oeuvres. The first major study in a generation of the artist behind these remarkable paintings, "Arcimboldo" tells the singular story of their creation. Drawing on his thirty-five-year engagement with the artist, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann begins with an overview of Arcimboldo's life and work, exploring the artist's early years in sixteenth-century Lombardy, his grounding in Leonardesque traditions, and his tenure as a Habsburg court portraitist in Vienna and Prague. "Arcimboldo" then trains its focus on the celebrated composite heads, approaching them as visual jokes with serious underpinnings - images that poetically display pictorial wit while conveying an allegorical message. In addition to probing the humanistic, literary, and philosophical dimensions of these pieces, Kaufmann explains that they embody their creator's continuous engagement with nature painting and natural history. He reveals, in fact, that Arcimboldo painted many more nature studies than scholars have realized - a finding that significantly deepens current interpretations of the composite heads. Demonstrating the previously overlooked importance of these works to natural history and still-life painting, "Arcimboldo" finally restores the artist's fantastic visual jokes to their rightful place in the history of both science and art.

Adventures on the High Seas Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Adventures on the High Seas: Romantic Incidents Perils of Travel, Sport, and Exploration Throughout the World Not all the races that have won renown by their daring adventures on the ocean can, perhaps, be credited with a passion for the sea. Those adventurous traders, the old Phoenicians, are said to have hugged the shores of the Mediterranean, and to have ventured as little as possible out of sight of land. It was the pursuit of wealth and the thirst for discovery which led the mercantile Venetians of the Middle Ages and the Spanish and Portuguese explorers to brave the dangers of the deep, rather than a love of its salt breezes and rolling waves. Yet among them, as among the old Vikings, and the Dutchmen of later times, not less ready on occasion to fight than to trade, and the hardy mariners from British ports and from harbours across the Atlantic, have been many of those true lovers of the sea to whom the sailor's life, if the most dangerous of avocations, is also the most alluring. These are ready to exclaim, with Childe Harold - Once more upon the waters! yet once more! And the waves hound beneath me as a steed That knows his rider. Welcome to their roar! Swift be their guidance, wheresoe'er it lead, Though the strain'd mast should quiver as a reed, And the rent canvas fluttering strew the gale.

Narrator Hoye firmly nails young world-weary cop Bucky Bleichert in this audio version of Ellroy's 1987 crime novel. The flawed boxer-turned-lawman becomes obsessed with L.A.'s notorious unsolved 1947 torture-murder case, as well as the secret life of his missing partner, Lee Blanchard. Hoye proves a fine match for Ellroy's hardboiled prose, shuttling easily between hard and soft tones, crystallizing Bleichert's mix of cynicism, confusion, hurt and rage. Set in booming postwar Los Angeles, this tale of ambition, deceit and obsession builds to symphonic proportions. Throughout, Hoye skillfully modulates his narration to distinctly render each character?corrupt cops, city officials, pimps, GIs, Mexican bar owners, prostitutes, society matrons and even the sound of a bullet piercing canvas. Hoye especially shines during heated police interrogations, able to shift his voice on a dime. The audio includes a new afterword from Ellroy, which might have delivered more punch had Ellroy read it himself. But in terms of this gritty, sprawling novel, Hoye was unquestionably the right man for the job.

About the Central European Classics series: "Half a continent's worth of forgotten genius."--The Guardian The new Central European Classics series was born some ten years ago in the dim cafes of Budapest and Prague when General Editor Timothy Garton Ash began jotting down titles recommended to him by local writers. Its aim is to take these works of nineteenth- and twentieth-century classic fiction "out of the ghetto," onto the shelves of Western booksellers, and into the consciousness of Western readers. The result of extensive discussion among writers, scholars, and critics, the rich tradition of Central European fiction has been culled to offer previously unavailable works written in Czech, Hungarian, and Polish that lend themselves perfectly to powerful and accurate translation. Specially commissioned introductions by leading Central European writers explain why these titles have become classics in their own country, while at the same time, the works stand on their own as great literature in English. With future titles such as a new edition of Boleslaw Prus's Polish masterpiece, The Doll, the Central European Classics series will contribute to a deeper understanding of the culture and history of countries which, since the opening of iron curtain, have been coming closer to us in many other ways. The city of Warsaw, under Russian rule in the late 1870s, is the setting for this sweeping panorama of social conflict, political tensions, and personal suffering. The middle-aged hero, Wokulski, bold and successful in business, is being destroyed by his obsessive love for the frigid, aristocratic society "doll," Izabela. The embattled aristocracy, the new men of finance, Dickensian tradesmen, and the urban poor all come vividly to life on the vast, superbly detailed canvas against which Wokulski's personal tragedy is played out. For this edition, the existing translation by David Welsh has been carefully revised under the supervision of the leading Polish critic, Stanislaw Bara'nczak. A chapter excised by the Tsarist censor is included as an appendix. Bara'nczak also contributes to an authoritative and illuminating new introduction to what is arguably the greatest Polish novel of the nineteenth century.

Egon Schiele Prestel

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book traces Schiele's development as a portraitist through four principal chronological phases, from 1906 to 1918. Starting with the artist's rigorous training at the Vienna Academy, it chronicles Schiele's eventual break with academia and the emergence of his Expressionistic style. As Schiele honed his technical abilities, he gathered a coterie of patrons-many of whom he immortalized on canvas-and developed a tendency toward realism and introspection. Throughout his career Schiele tested the boundaries of traditional portraiture. Confrontational, explicitly erotic, and largely devoid of props or scenery, Schiele's portraits are seminal works of originality and deep empathy with the human condition. This volume also offers a close examination of Schiele's self-portraits and his relationship with Gustav Klimt, Schiele's gestic language in the context of contemporaneous photography and the silent film, as well as brief biographies of Schiele's subjects and transcriptions of illuminating letters pertaining to his life and work.

Collected Supernatural and Weird Fiction of Mary E. Wilkins Freeman Leonaur Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Weird tales from the heartland of New England Mary Eleanor Wilkins Freeman was a highly regarded and prominent 19th century American author. She began writing as a teenager to assist in supporting her family, and her pivotal career moment came when she became secretary to Oliver Wendall Holmes who, among other achievements, was acclaimed as one of the most outstanding American poets of his generation. Freeman writing abilities now developed rapidly, and as well as poetry, she displayed a particular talent for the crafting of short fiction; this led to her becoming an exponent of the supernatural tale. Freeman spent virtually all her life in Massachusetts and Vermont, and the rural flavour of New England permeates her work, giving it a distinctive style and canvas instantly recognisable as her own. This very substantial Leonaur collection of Mary Wilkins Freeman's fiction of the uncanny includes 'Evelina's Garden,' 'Silence,' 'The Love of Parson Lord,' 'The Buckley Lady,' 'Giles Corey, Yeoman' and many more stories of the strange and unusual. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

The Pursuit of Power Penguin Books

NaukaHistoria świata

A scintillating, encyclopaedic history, rich in detail from the arcane to the familiar...a veritable tour de force Richard Overy, New Statesman Transnational history at its finest, political and cultural themes swirl together in one great canvas of immense detail and beauty Gerard DeGroot, The Times Dazzlingly erudite and entertaining Dominic Sandbrook, The Sunday Times A masterpiece which brings to life an extraordinarly turbulent and dramatic era of revolutionary change. The Pursuit of Power draws on a lifetime of thinking about nineteenth-century Europe to create an extraordinarily rich, surprising and entertaining panorama of a continent undergoing drastic transformation. The book aims to reignite the sense of wonder that permeated this remarkable era, as rulers and ruled navigated overwhelming cultural, political and technological changes. It was a time where what was seen as modern with amazing speed appeared old-fashioned, where huge cities sprang up in a generation, new European countries were created and where, for the first time, humans could communicate almost instantly over thousands of miles. In the period bounded by the Battle of Waterloo and the outbreak of World War I, Europe dominated the rest of the world as never before or since: this book breaks new ground by showing how the continent shaped, and was shaped by, its interactions with other parts of the globe. Richard Evans explores fully the revolutions, empire-building and wars that marked the nineteenth century, but the book is about so much more, whether it is illness, serfdom, religion or philosophy. The Pursuit of Power is a work by a historian at the height of his powers: essential for anyone trying to understand Europe, then or now.
