Little Germany Amberley Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Little Germany takes us back to the nineteenth century, when Bradford, West Yorkshire, was the wool capital of the world. Over the centuries, Germany and Great Britain have been close trading partners. When Bradford became renowned for its rapidly expanding textile trade, prosperous German wool merchants entered the country and many of them settled in Bradford. These men, comparatively few in number but with great determination, influenced Bradford's markets with their knowledge of commerce and philanthropic culture. They were merchants who left their mark; men who built the palatial warehouses in Little Germany. At the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and throughout the nineteenth century, cottage industries had given way to industrialisation and factories replaced traditional production. Bradford grew from a country market town into an industrial city, with smoke-blackened buildings and a polluted landscape. It was a city of great wealth against abject poverty and slums. Workers came to Bradford in their thousands, attracted by the prospect of work. German pork butchers from Hohenlohe in south Germany settled in the industrial cities of Great Britain. Their cheap and tasty 'take-away' meals were popular with factory workers, who had no time to cook due to long working hours.

Excerpt: Norddeutsche Lloyd (NDL) (North German Lloyd) was a German shipping company. It was initiated by Hermann Henrich Meier and Eduard Crüsemann in Bremen on February 20, 1857. It developed into one of the most important German shipping companies of the late 19th and early 20th Century, and was instrumental in the economic development of Bremen and Bremerhaven. On September 1, 1970, the company merged with Hamburg America Line (HAPAG) to form Hapag-Lloyd AG. Prospectus of NDL document from year 1857, proclaiming the formation of the company. Headquarter of the North German Lloyd in Bremerhaven during 1870The German shipping company, North German Lloyd (NDL), was initiated by the Bremen merchants Henrich Hermann Meier and Eduard Crüsemann on February 20, 1857 after the dissolution of the Ocean Steam Navigation Company (a joint German-American enterprise). The new shipping company did not have any association with the British maritime classification society Lloyd's Register. H.H. Meier became NDL's first Chairman of the Supervisory Board, and Crüsemann became the first director of the company (German: - AG). Crüsemann took care of the cargo of passenger ships, which, as a result of emigration, had grown significantly for the company. The company was also active in other manners such as providing a tugboat service, baths service, insurance, and ship repair (the last of which is still in business). The first office of the shipping company was located at number 13 Martinistraße in Bremen. The company started with a route to England prior to starting a transatlantic service. During 1857, the first ship, the Adler (Eagle), started a regular passenger service between the Weser region (where Bremen is located) and England. On October 28, 1857, it made its maiden voyage from Nordenham to London. Just one year later, regular, scheduled services were started between the new port in Bremerhaven and New York using the two 2,674 GRT steamships, the Bremen (I) and the New York. During t

Wolfgang Hildesheimer and His Critics Camden House Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Professor Stanley's book analyses the critical response to the works of Wolfgang Hildesheimer, one of the most important German writers - of plays, short stories, travelogues, biographies and longer fiction - to emerge from the postwar period. Hildesheimer's early writing, strongly influenced by James Joyce and Beckett, is the literature of the absurd in Germany, but it was only with the publication of "Tynset" (1965) - translated into other European languages and Japanese - that his European reputation was firmly established. He became famous in English-speaking countries with his unconventional biography "Mozart" (1977), which portrays Mozart as a kind of absurdist; his next book, "Marbot", a fictional biography, is about an English nobleman of the early nineteenth century who is purported to have met and spoken with Goethe, Byron, the German Romantic poet Platen, Leopardi, and other luminaries of the period: Marbot has recently attracted considerable critical attention on both sides of the Atlantic, and Stanley provides illuminating discussions of the critical controversy surrounding the problematic relationship of author and subject. She also shows that Hildesheimer has close links to some of the great European writers of the age, such as Ionesco, but that he nevertheless, in the later works, owes much to Goethe and Thomas Mann.
