Annotated Anne of Green Gables Oxford University Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Since its publication in 1908, Anne of Green Gables has been a continuous international best-seller, enjoying successful television adaptations, and captivating children and adults alike with the irresistible charms of its remarkable heroine, Anne Shirley. This wildly imaginative, red-headed chatterbox tries to fit into the narrow confines of Victorian expectations, but her exuberant spirit keeps leaping delightfully beyond the bounds. Indeed, when Maud Montgomery decided to reject the sermonizing formulas of the children's books of her day, she brought to life a character much closer to Jane Eyre, David Copperfield, and Tom Sawyer-also orphans, like Anne-than to the self-sacrificing, conformist heroines then in demand. In doing so, Montgomery subtly questioned the values of her society-the stifling restraints of its religion and most especially its treatment of women-while giving readers all the pleasures of her considerable story-telling gifts. Now, in this first fully annotated edition of Anne of Green Gables, readers will appreciate more clearly than ever before the scope and depth of this extraordinary novel. Editors Margaret Anne Doody, Mary Doody Jones, and Wendy Barry provide a richly illustrated, completely revised text, along with hundreds of notes describing the real-life characters and settings Anne encounters, the autobiographical connections between Anne and Maud Montgomery, and the book's astonishing range of literary, biblical, and mythological references. Additional essays offer fascinating background information on such topics as the geography and settlement of Prince Edward's Island (where Anne takes place); the education, orphanages, music, and literature of Anne's time; and the horticulture, homemade artifacts, and food preparation that are so prevalent in the story. Margaret Anne Doody supplies a comprehensive introduction, which situates the novel in its literary and social contexts, explores those aspects of Montgomery's life most relevant to the story, examines revisions in the manuscripts, and provides an overall sense of both the impulses that drove Montgomery to write Anne of Green Gables and the larger concerns it dramatizes so compellingly. This edition also contains a chronology of Montgomery's life, an extensive bibliography, songs and poems that appear in the text, and a selection of original reviews of the book. This wealth of material enables readers to grasp the marvelous multi-layeredness of the novel and to understand more fully its place in both its own time and in ours. Elegantly and beautifully designed, with generous illustrations from previous editions, photographs of the places the novel inhabits, and explanatory drawings that reproduce the texture of Anne's world, The Annotated Anne of Green Gables is a major event in the publishing history of one of the world's most charming stories.
Getting Back into Place INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
What would the world be like if there were no places? Our lives are so place-oriented that we cannot begin to comprehend the loss of locality. Indeed, the space we occupy has much to do with what and who we are. Yet, despite the pervasiveness of place in our everyday lives, philosophers have neglected it. Since its publication in 1993, Getting Back into Place has been recognized as a pioneering study of the importance of place in people's lives. This edition includes new material that reflects on the development of the field of environmental philosophy and presents Edward S. Casey's current thinking on place and home in our increasingly troubled world.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Home Dressmaking Made Easy (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Home Dressmaking Made Easy One might style this an explanation or excuse for the book being in existence, but there seemed to be a place for it and the author is trying to fill that niche after an experience of eighteen years with dry goods, dressmaking and the individual needs of women. From my large correspondence, I know that it is of general interest to an immense number of women who are obliged to do home dressmaking without any previous training. It has not been found advisable to illustrate current fashions, as they change too quickly to become standard, but the main principles of cutting, fitting and finishing, like the brook, go on forever, and these once learned make even the race with Dame Fashion an easy one. Have patience, perseverance and care and you will accomplish wonders. Surely it is worth the trial if you only learn to gown yourself economically and becomingly. "Make haste slowly" in dressmaking. In these days there are many conveniences offered to the home dressmaker in the way of notions, materials, sewing implements, etc., but very few are able to try them all and are thus unable to judge which is really best of the many for sale; for this reason I have given the names of several articles through this book, knowing them to be first in their line and satisfactory in every respect, and though some may be unfamiliar to my readers, when once tried they will prove indispensable. A desire to be well dressed is inborn with every woman, and man as well, and why not follow this desire unless it cause one to neglect home duties or induces one to spend more than can be afforded upon ones wardrobe? When neatly and becomingly attired a woman is happier and more at ease in her manner when in the presence of others, and remember that it costs no more to dress becomingly than it does to don the wrong materials and colors. If you do not know what is becoming and suitable Home Dressmaking will tell you. Especial attention is given in this little work to the dressing of very stout, extremely short and unduly slender figures. All figures may be improved if we only know how to do it, and I trust in a practical manner to make this possible for my readers. Many terms used by dressmakers are of an unknown tongue to an amateur, so I have added a list of definitions that I hope will assist my readers and prove, like the rest of this work, "a friend in need."

"There was something in Capri, in its most wild, most solitary, most dramatic part, where the island, nearly human, becomes ferocious, where nature expresses itself with a cruel and incomparable strength, an extremely pure and linear promontory, which tore up the sea with its cutting claw. No place in Italy has such a wide horizon to stare at, nor such a depth of feeling. A site only for strong men and for free spirits... Here, in this wilderness, I am the first one who will build a house."§Few modern buildings embody antique beauty and mythical magic like Casa Malaparte, designed by the controversial Italian journalist, poet and novelist Curzio Malaparte in 1937 as a home for himself. Karl Lagerfeld visited the site for five days in November 1997 and took a series of Polaroids, which were subsequently transferred to Arches mold-made paper and published in book form by Steidl in 1998. This sought-after classic is finally available again in a new edition.§"A house like me!" Curzio Malaparte

Unreal City Faber & Faber, London
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Strolling through this wide sweep, gazing across the fleet of trains bound for Paris or Brussels, the powder blue steel vaulting soaring above them, the inside of a giant whale's ribcage, a hymn to the infrastructure of our hyper-connected age; like Jonah swallowed up by it all, by the hum of the giant extractor fans, the deep hum at the heart of it all - back here, home again, lost in London...With a property portfolio consisting of a beach hut in Kent, and a career as evanescent as it is unprofitable, the narrator of Unreal City is a flaneur fallen on hard times, a creative bewildered by the slick speed of the digital age, watching as the sculptors and painters and bon viveurs begin to slip away and the advertising hipsters take over old stomping grounds. From the nights in old Soho, where an anonymous green door was the gateway to a decadently dingy paradise, to the days amid the shabby post-industrial elegance of Hackney's canalside warehouses, this is a nostalgic love song to the drifters, the artists, the glamorous misfits, the degenerate waifs and the barmaid-enchantresses of the capital's backstreets and shadowy corners. The pages in this special edition are unbound, gathered in a sleeve, and annotated by the legendary producer and DJ Andrew Weatherall. Accompanying the pages are a six-track original CD soundtrack composed by Andrew, and a 10-inch record containing one remix.

Wizard of Oz BFI PUBLISHING
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The Wizard of Oz 'was my very first literary influence,' writes Salman Rushdie in his account of the great MGM children's classic. At the age of ten he had written a story, 'Over the Rainbow', about a colourful fantasy world. But for Rushdie The Wizard of Oz is more than a children's film, and more than a fantasy. It's a story whose driving force is the inadequacy of adults, in which 'the weakness of grown-ups forces children to take control of their own destinies'. And Rushdie rejects the conventional view that its fantasy of escape from reality ends with a comforting return to home, sweet home. On the contrary, it is a film that speaks to the exile. The Wizard of Oz shows that imagination can become reality, that there is no such place like home, or rather that the only home is the one we make for ourselves. Rushdie's brilliant insights into a film more often seen than written about are rounded off with his typically scintillating short story, 'At the Auction of the Ruby Slippers,' about the day when Dorothy's red shoes are knocked down to $15,000 at a sale of MGM props ...In his foreword to this special edition, published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BFI Film Classics series, Rushdie looks back to the circumstances in which he wrote the book, when, in the wake of the controversy surrounding The Satanic Verses and the issue of a fatwa against him, the idea of home and exile held a particular resonance.

With other encyclopedic texts, this can be very difficult for instructors to accomplish.|Chapter Opening Financial Reporting Cases - Each chapter opens with a Financial Reporting Case that places the students in the role of the decision-maker.

Denmark Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Denmark: Its History and Topography Language, Literature, Fine-Arts, Social Life and Finance What is the work here offered to the reader? It is, in a few words, a book with no claim to say anything new, and which yet hopes to be something new; it treats of Denmark and a great variety of things Danish, and yet it does not speak the Danish tongue. Without pretending to teach the Danes anything, it addresses foreigners in the three languages of the world. \strangers feeling an interest in our country will find here awell, whence they may draw a goodly draught of intelligence concerning to the soil and the people, its more important institutions and intellectual move ments, seen as it were with Danish eyes. It is to be hoped that in this way foreigners will become acquainted with a little king dom, sharing, as far. As its limited sphere and means will allow, in the great civilisatory currents of our time. They will also acknowledge that, in spite of the hard trials it has undergone, the nation has courageously stood firm, and both mentally and materi ally struggled with success to keep its own rightful place among the states of Europe. The general plan is an old and favorite idea of my publisher, Mr. Cfin'stz'an East, and is in fact but a continuation of his former attempts to make known abroad Denmark as she is, and also to give an idea of the scientific progress she has made. When he proposed that I should help him in carrying out this plan, I sawat once the difficulty of the task. As far as possible there should be a oneness of labor throughout the whole, and yet each section was to be written by a separate individual; so also, the specific Danish should be seen and heard in the foreign garb, and yet without doing violence to the language in which it was to be written. Difficulties like these it was not always possible entirely to overcome, but the will to do what could be done has never been wanting. A word as to the orthography of the proper names. It is un doubtedly most correct to allow the names of places keep the form which they bear in their own country. People are seldom so absurd as to alter names of persons. But why should not also place names be generally respected? Instead in this manner, the method in vogue is often mere caprice. Sometimes the word remains unchanged; sometimes it is only slightly modified; in other cases it is twisted out of all resemblance to the original. All this chaotic spelling should be held in check, especially where Geography is concerned. The reader ought to know what the name is in the country itself, however common such forms as Copenhagen, Funen and Elsinore may be. Where the foreign and home spelling as in the case of Schleswig and Slesvig may be equally admissible, I have naturally preferred the latter. Still, for very good reasons, I have only carried this out more or less consistently in the geographical chapter, Country and people; elsewhere the current orthographies are commonly not interfered with.
