Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The first collected and annotated edition of Carroll's brilliant, witty poems, edited by Gillian Beer. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe...' wrote Lewis Carroll in his wonderfully playful poem of nonsense verse, 'Jabberwocky'. This new edition collects together the marvellous range of Carroll's poetry, including nonsense verse, parodies, burlesques, and more. Alongside the title piece are such enduringly wonderful pieces as 'The Walrus and the Carpenter', 'The Mock Turtle's Song', 'Father William' and many more. This edition also includes notes, a chronology and an introduction by Gillian Beer that discusses Carroll's love of puzzles and wordplay and the relationship of his poetry with the Alice books. "Opening at random Gillian Beer's new edition of Lewis Carroll's poems, Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense, guarantees a pleasurable experience - not all of it nonsensical". (Times Literary Supplement). Lewis Carroll was the pen-name of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Born in 1832, he was educated at Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford, where he was appointed lecturer in mathematics in 1855, and where he spent the rest of his life. In 1861 he took deacon's orders, but shyness and a stammer prevented him from seeking the priesthood. His most famous works, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1872), were originally written for Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of his college. Charles Dodgson died of bronchitis in 1898. Gillian Beer is King Edward VII Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Cambridge and past President of Clare Hall College. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and of the Royal Society of Literature. Among her works are Darwin's Plots (1983; third edition, 2009), George Eliot (1986), Arguing with the Past: Essays in Narrative from Woolf to Sidney (1989), Open Fields: Science in Cultural Encounter (1996) and Virginia Woolf: The Common Ground (1996).

Dvorak: Complete symphonies, Slavonic dances, Overtures, Symphonic poems Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

Spread over nine CDs, this release represents a treasure trove of works by Dvorák, dedicated to and featuring the best of his orchestral music. The composer stands as the most popular of the Czech nationalist movement, one who despite German influences (Dvorák counted Brahms and Wagner among his inspirations) became a byword in the assimilation of folk roots into serious musical composition. Not only did he use existing melodies, but he composed his own folk-based themes too.Apart from the nine symphonies, which of course include the enduringly popular 'New World', written during the composer's sojourn in America, the compilation also features a series of overtures (such as the famous Carnival Overture, an exuberant celebration of human life at its best), tone poems (A Hero's Song, which is a sort of Czech equivalent to Strauss's somewhat later Ein Heldenleben, and four gruesome folk ballads which represent the composer's Indian Summer, among others), the famous Czech Suite which has a Mozart Serenade quality about it, and the two sets of Slavonic Dances -- the first of which represents a tribute from the younger composer to Brahms's own Hungarian Dances and firmly established Dvorák as a leader of the new Czech national school.Performing these works is a trio of great ensembles: the Staatskapelle Berlin under their esteemed director of 26 years, Otmar Suitner; The Janácek Philharmonic Orchestra -- natural experts in this type of repertoire; and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, performing under the baton of John Farrer. The edition is an excellent addition to the Brilliant Classics orchestral catalogue and records a crucial facet of the output of one of Europe's most famous composers.Other information:- Recorded in 1979--2004.- An excellent bargain set in the best Brilliant Classics tradition: the complete symphonies, symphonic poems, overtures and Slavonic Dances of Antonin Dvorák.- The set contains all the symphonic works which made Dvorak one of the best and universally loved romantic composers (and who knew how to write a good tune!): the 9-th symphony "From the New World" (one of the most popular symphonies ever written), the charming Czech Suite, haunting symphonic poems (Noon Witch, the Water Goblin) and the exhilarating complete Slavonic Dances. Music pouring from a warm and fiercely beating heart, in which the folklore music of Dvorák's home country is never far away.- Excellent performances by the Berlin Staatskapelle/Otmar Suitner, the Janacek Philharmonic/Theodore Kuchar and the Royal Philharmonic/John Farrer.- Contains notes on the composer and the music.

Greek Lyric LOEB

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The most important poets writing in Greek in the sixth century BCE came from Sicily and southern Italy. Stesichorus was called by ancient writers "most Homeric"a recognition of his epic themes and noble style. He composed verses about the Trojan War and its aftermath, the Argonauts, the adventures of Heracles. He may have been a solo singer, performing these poems to his own cithara accompaniment. Ibycus probably belonged to the colony of Rhegium in southwestern Italy. Like Stesichorus he wrote lyrical narratives on mythological themes, but he also composed erotic poems. Simonides is said to have spent his later years in Sicily. He was in Athens at the time of the Persian Wars, though, and was acclaimed for his epitaph on the Athenians who died at Marathon. He was a successful poet in various genres, including victory odes, dirges, and dithyrambic poetry. The power of his pathos emerges in the fragments we have. All the extant verse of these poets is given in this third volume of David Campbell's edition of Greek lyric poetry, along with the ancients' accounts of their lives and works. Ten contemporary poets are also included, among them Arion, Lasus, and Pratinas. The Greek Lyric edition is five volumes. Sappho and Alcaeus the illustrious singers of sixth-century Lesbosare in the first volume. Volume II contains the work of Anacreon, composer of solo song; the "Anacreontea;" and the earliest writers of choral poetry, notably the seventh-century Spartans Alcman and Terpander. Bacchylides and other fifth-century poets are in Volume IV along with Corinna (although some argue that she belongs to the third century). The last volume includes the new school of dithyrambic poets (mid-fifth to mid-fourth century), together with the anonymous poems: drinking songs, children's songs, cult hymns, and others.

Strong in the Rain BLOODAXE BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933) is now widely viewed as Japan's greatest poet of the 20th century. Little known in his lifetime, he died at 37 from tuberculosis, but has since become a much loved children's author whose magical tales have been translated into many languages, adapted for the stage and turned into films and animations. Recognition for his poetry came much later. "Strong in the Rain" - the title-poem of this selection - is now arguably the most memorised and quoted modern poem in Japan. Both intensely lyrical and permeated with a sophisticated scientific understanding of the universe, Kenji Miyazawa's poems testify to his deep love of humanity and nature. From a young age, he was fascinated by plants, insects, and especially minerals, which he collected. At school, his interest in nature deepened, and he began poring through books on philosophy and Buddhism, which were to strongly influence his later writing. Miyazawa drew on nature in a way that no modern Japanese author had before him. Where other writers tended to use it as a springboard for their own meditations, he saw himself not just as nature's faithful chronicler and recorder but as its medium: light, wind and rain are processed through him before being recreated on the page. His mode of active engagement with nature set him apart from virtually all other Japanese poets, and led to his work being largely ignored by the Bundan (the literary establishment) and misunderstood for half a century. But in the 1990s, he received unprecedented attention in the Japanese media. The compassion, empathy and closeness to nature expressed in Kenji Miyazawa's poems and tales appealed strongly to a new generation of readers.

James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915) was an English poet, novelist and playwright. As a poet he was most influenced by the Parnassian poets. He was born in London, and educated at Dean Close School, Cheltenham, where his father was headmaster, and Uppingham School. He studied at Trinity College, Oxford, and Caius College, Cambridge. While at Oxford he was greatly influenced by the last flowering of the Aesthetic movement there, under John Addington Symonds. From 1910 he was in the consular service, in the Eastern Mediterranean. His most widely known poem is "To a Poet a Thousand Years Hence".

Oath of Allegiance is a collection of insightful poetry that protests the treatment of "special" or "gifted" students, those who are often bullied because they are considered different. These protest and meditation poems reject how these innocent and "different" people are treated. The author suffered from bullying growing up, and the effects still haunt him. Author Charles Christie Mulaga says the work of other writers has inspired him, especially when the writing is about extraordinary courage, and the sacrifices made for peace and freedom. He is also motivated by the extraordinary endeavors to alleviate the suffering of humanity through science and technology. He is disheartened by elders who instill prejudice in the minds of children, which can lead to vindictive actions that only slow down our civilization. "As a Christian, I like the idea of forgiveness. When the abuse gets overwhelming, I feel let down, but still more I forgive. The lord will help me," he says. "Putting such experiences in writing is also part of my attempt to heal and share it with the world." About the Author: Charles Christie Mulaga was born the youngest of seven children to two rural school teachers in Northern Malawi. His parents encouraged him to read a lot, which helped develop his writing skills. He is a civil servant and works for the government. This is his first book.
