Letters and Diaries of Kathleen Ferrier BOYDELL PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Fifty years ago, Kathleen Ferrier, the greatest lyric contralto Britain has ever produced, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer. Her name endures to this day for she struck a chord with a wide-ranging public, in concerts, on records and on the radio, despite a career which lasted barely ten years. Within a decade this former telephone exchange operator was singing on stage at Covent Garden or before royalty at private parties. She must have been fun to know, and from this collection of letters, just over 300 of them gathered from sources in Britain, America, Canada and Holland, as well as 12 years of her personal diaries, what emerges provides a sunny picture in the gloomy landscape of the post World War II days. Her indefinable personality was a mix of extreme modesty and self-determined ambition, and a mischievously blunt sense of earthy Lancastrian humour. The voice remains unique, and no-one before nor since can stand comparison. Neither should they, for, as Peter Pears put it, 'A voice is a person'. Until now Kathleen Ferrier has been a voice, but through the pages of these fascinating letters and diaries we get to the person. CHRISTOPHER FIFIELD is foremost a conductor, but also a writer on music history (Grove, DNB, Viking Opera Guide, Oxford Companion to Music), and the author of two biographies, of Bruch and Hans Richter.

Love Letters to the Dead Hot Key Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It begins as an assignment for English class: write a letter to a dead person - any dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain - he died young, and so did Laurel's sister May - so maybe he'll understand a bit of what Laurel is going through. Soon Laurel is writing letters to lots of dead people - Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Amelia Earhart ...it's like she can't stop. And she'd certainly never dream of handing them in to her teacher. She writes about what it's like going to a new high school, meeting new friends, falling in love for the first time - and how her family has shattered since May died. But much as Laurel might find writing the letters cathartic, she can't keep real life out forever. The ghosts of her past won't be contained between the lines of a page, and she will have to come to terms with growing up, the agony of losing a beloved sister, and the realisation that only you can shape your destiny. A lyrical, haunting and stunning debut from the protege of Stephen Chbosky (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower).

Love Letters of Great Men - the Most Comprehensive Collection Available English Rose Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Letters are among the most significant memorial a person can leave behind them" said Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. This English Rose book is the most comprehensive collection of love letters available, containing a huge selection of some of the all time greatest love letters ever written. You will find in here all of the classics - Napoleon Bonaparte, Lord Byron, John Keats, Henry VIII, Ludwig van Beethoven etc. - but you will also find some treasures, little known and rarely published love letters, such as those of Prince Albert, D. H. Lawrence, Sigmund Freud, Horatio Lord Nelson and Abraham Lincoln. Whatever the tone, the context or style of the writing here displayed, what is true is that these letters are genuinely captivating. Throughout history, great men have written noble tomes. Their love letters are no exception. We can find in these correspondences some of the most delectable personal effusions ever written, the most incredible demonstrations of devotion and affection - not fictional, but real, impassioned, painful and heart-wrenching. Our interest in reading these letters, is partly in their magnificent language, their eloquent expressions of love, their romantic effluence, but also, it is in their demonstrations of the universal human vulnerability in love. Love letters infectiously render past lives into our modern reality, immersing the reader in the author's home, habits, enjoyments and romances. These men come to life through their personal letters, more so than anywhere else. They show us the human side of men who stand as giants in history, whose actions and legacies have helped to shape the world as we know it. In their moment of separation, without the crowd, without the nobility or the just cause, here, in their most vulnerable, exposed state, we see the person behind the celebrity. With these letters we have the unique ability to spy on the personal lives of men considered 'great'. Their humanity, so lacking in the history books, is all we are privy to here. There is no great action, no battle won, no literary accomplishment, only deep personal feeling and romantic expression. This English Rose book is a high quality, well formatted, stunning hardback edition. English Rose love books and think that every one is special, so our editions will always be distinctive, professional and unique.

Three women, united by love and kinship, struggle to conform to the social norms of the times in which they lived. In 1931, Katherine Henderson leaves behind her small town in Kansas and the marriage proposal of a local boy to live on her own and work at the Sears & Roebuck glove counter in Chicago. There she meets Annie-a bold, outspoken feminist who challenges Katherine's idea of who she thinks she is and what she thinks she wants in life. In 1997, Katherine's daughter, Joan, travels to Lawrence, Kansas, to clean out her estranged mother's house. In an old suitcase she finds a wooden box containing trinkets and a packet of sealed letters to a person identified only by a first initial.  Joan reads the unsent letters and discovers a woman completely different from the aloof and unyielding mother of her youth-a woman who had loved deeply and lost that love to circumstances beyond her control.  Now Joan just has to find the strength to use the healing power of empathy and forgiveness to live the life she's always wanted to live.

Love Letters of Great Men PAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the private papers of Mark Twain and Mozart to those of Robert Browning and Nelson, Love Letters of Great Men collects together some of the most romantic letters in history. For some of these great men, love is a 'delicious poison' (William Congreve); for others, 'a nice soft wife on a sofa with good fire, & books & music' (Charles Darwin). Love can scorch like the heat of the sun (Henry VIII), or penetrate the depths of one's heart like a cooling rain (Flaubert). Every shade of love is here, from the exquisite eloquence of Oscar Wilde and the simple devotion of Robert Browning, to the wonderfully modern misery of the Roman Pliny the Younger, losing himself in work to forget how much he misses his beloved wife, Calpurnia. Taken together, these Love Letters of Great Men show that perhaps men haven't changed so very much over the last 2,000 years; passion, jealousy, hope and longing are all represented here -- as is the simple pleasure of sending a letter to, and receiving one from, the person you love most.

Flourishing Letters 1928-1946 Chatto & Windus

Literatura faktu

'Life is not worth living unless one can be indiscreet to intimate friends,' wrote Isaiah Berlin to a correspondent. Flourishing inaugurates a keenly awaited edition of Berlin's letters that might well adopt this remark as an epigraph. Berlin's life was enormously worth living, both for himself and for us; and fortunately he said a great deal to his friends on paper as well as in person. The indiscretions - only part of the story, of course - are not those of Everyman. Berlin is one of the towering intellectual figures of the twentieth century, the most famous English thinker of the post-war era, and the focus of growing interest and discussion. Above all, he is one of the best modern exponents of the disappearing art of letter-writing. When this volume opens Berlin is eighteen, a pupil at St Paul's School, London. He becomes an undergraduate at Oxford, then a Fellow of All Souls, where he writes his famous biography of Karl Marx. He then moves to New College to teach philosophy, and after the outbreak of the World War 2 sails to America in somewhat mysterious circumstances with Guy Burgess.

Letters and Diaries of Kathleen Ferrier BOYDELL PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1953, at the age of 41, Kathleen Ferrier, England's greatest lyric contralto, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer. Her huge appeal to a wide audience - in concerts, on records, on the radio and in the opera house - has ensured her name endures to this day, despite a career which lasted barely ten years. In just half that time, this former telephone exchange operator was singing on stage at Covent Garden, before royalty at private parties, and at New York's Carnegie Hall. This collection of letters and twelve years of her personal diaries was first published by Boydell Press in 2003. Here, an enlarged paperback edition contains a new chapter revealing her growing importance to the BBC, an additional 90 letters, together with much revised material and a selection of moving tributes. Published to mark the centenary of her birth in 1912, the book, of more than 400 letters, provides a vivid picture of a life which illuminated the war and post-war years of austerity and hardship. Kathleen Ferrier was surely fun to know. Her personality was a mix of extreme modesty and self-determined ambition, topped with a mischievously blunt sense of earthy Lancastrian humour. She is known for her glorious voice, but through the pages of these fascinating letters and diaries we get to meet the real person. DR CHRISTOPHER FIFIELD is a conductor, music historian, lecturer and broadcaster. He is the biographer of Max Bruch (Boydell Press 2005) and conductor Hans Richter, and the author of a history of the music agents Ibbs & Tillett.

Letters I Never Sent to You Burning Eye Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

LETTERS I NEVER SENT TO YOU is a collection of impressions and encounters; of people briefly met and of places passed through and lived in. It explores the sometimes slippery nature of the word "home" and how love and heartbreak can be felt just as strongly for a place as for a person. It explores connection and disconnection with places, people and the spaces in which we encounter them. From Washington D.C. to London, from Accra to Paris and onwards to Berlin, LETTERS I NEVER SENT TO YOU tells stories of a life split between places, identities, languages, nationalities, sexualities and of running away and running into yourself, of love lost and found again. Having created work for stage, film, page and performance Paula Varjack has been writing to you for nearly a decade with no expectations of ever hearing your reactions. Can you write yourself into existence? Paula did, and she wants to open up to you, even though (and perhaps especially because) you might not have ever met. What would you share with someone you would never see again?

Letters of Nancy Mitford and Evelyn Waugh Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Nancy Mitford and Evelyn Waugh were two of the twentieth century's most amusing and gifted writers, who matched wits and traded literary advice in more than five hundred letters over twenty-two years. Dissecting their friends, criticizing each other's books and concealing their true feelings beneath a barrage of hilarious and knowing repartee, they found it far easier to conduct a friendship on paper than in person. This correspondence provides a colorful glimpse into the literary and social circles of London and Paris, during the Second World War and for twenty years after.
