Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

SHOCK! HORROR! Shakespeare really did write the works ascribed to him. But how could a relatively poor, ignorant provincial lad have written such masterpieces? How did he acquire the knowledge implicit in his plays - the details of historical events, tales of foreign countries? How did he spend his time in the so-called "lost years"? This book attempts to provide in fictional form answers to these questions and introduces the reader to some of the extraordinary characters the budding playwright would have encountered, particularly Thomas James, who in later years developed a reputation as the "cleverest man in England" after his appointment as the first librarian to the Bodleian Library in Oxford Leslie Rocker has been a writer of one kind or another all his life - journalist, magazine editor, poet, playwright. He has only recently begun writing novels, but this book has been in gestation since his first play, The Death of Christopher Marlowe was produced in London in the 1960s.

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.

Love's Labour's Lost Penguin Classics

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

William Shakespeare's comedy Love's Labours Lost is edited with an introduction by John Kerrigan in Penguin Shakespeare. 'What fool is not so wise To lose an oath to win a paradise?' Ferdinand, King of Navarre and his lords Berowne, Dumaine, and Longaville agree to form an austere academy, taking a solemn to have no contact with women for three years. But when the Princess of neighbouring France arrives with her female attendants, their pledge is quickly placed under strain. Soon all are smitten and confusion abounds, as each struggles to secretly declare his love in this comedy of deception, desire and mistaken identity. This book contains a general introduction to Shakespeare's life and Elizabethan theatre, a separate introduction to Love's Labours Lost, a chronology, suggestions for further reading, an essay discussing performance options on both stage and screen, and a commentary. William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was born to John Shakespeare and Mary Arden some time in late April 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. He wrote about 38 plays (the precise number is uncertain), many of which are regarded as the most exceptional works of drama ever produced, including Romeo and Juliet (1595), Henry V (1599), Hamlet (1601), Othello (1604), King Lear (1606) and Macbeth (1606), as well as a collection of 154 sonnets, which number among the most profound and influential love poetry in English. If you enjoyed Love's Labours Lost, you might like The Merry Wives of Windsor, also available in Penguin Shakespeare. "The most beautiful of Shakespeare's comedies." (Kenneth Branagh).

Prefaces to Shakespeare HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When Tony Tanner died in 1998, the world lost a critic who was as sensitive a reader of Jane Austen as he was of Thomas Pynchon, and who wrote with a warmth and clarity that belied his fluency in literary theory. In the final ten years of his life Tanner tackled the largest project any critic in English can take on - writing a preface to each of Shakespeare's plays. This collection serves as a comprehensive introduction for the general reader, the greatest and perhaps the last in the line of great introductions to Shakespeare written by such luminaries as Samuel Johnson and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Tanner brings Shakespeare to life, explicating everything from big-picture issues such as the implications of shifts in Elizabethan culture to close readings of Shakespeare's deployment of complex words in his plays. Although these prefaces are written for a general audience, there is much value for the scholar as well. Tanner introduces some of the most significant recent and historical scholarship on Shakespeare to show the reader how certain critics frame large issues in a useful way. This scholarly generosity permits Johnson, Hazlitt, Emerson, Thoreau, Ruskin, Pater, and many others to enter into conversation. The Independent said of the project, "All of Tanner's life and education had prepared him for this task and the results are magnificent - both accessible and erudite".

Comedy of Errors SparkNotes

Powieści i opowiadania

Two sets of twins, both separated during a shipwreck that occurred 23 years before the present drama unfolds, convolute the absurd plot of Shakespeare's most farcical play. The composition of this, his shortest work, is commonly dated between 1592 and 1594; scholarship has placed its probable first performance on December 28, 1594 at the Gray's Inn, London. THE COMEDY OF ERRORS was included in the FIRST FOLIO, 1623, and is classified in Shakespeare's oeuvre as a comedy. The action precipitates in the course of a single day in three simple locations: the Phoenix, the Porcupine, and the Priory, buildings in the city of Ephesus. The action begins when Egeon is heavily taxed by the Duke moments after disembarking in Ephesus after five years of wayfaring. The Duke is lenient after hearing the pathetic circumstances that brought Egeon there, which serves as a prologue to the play: Egeon's family--his wife and twin sons, along with a set of twin slave boys--were separated in a shipwreck 23 years earlier. After the wreck he returned home to Syracuse with but one son and one slave; the others were lost. In his 18th year this son, named Antipholus of Syracuse took his slave, Dromio of Syracuse (not to be confused with Antipholus and Dromio of Ephesus, twins of the former, now living in Ephesus) to search for his separated twin. Upon the departure of his only remaining son, Egeon, in despair embarks on a journey to find him. Naturally, as the rules of comedy proscribe, all parties land in Ephesus, unbeknownst to one another. Moreover, Aemilia, long-lost wife of Egeon, is also present, along with the sisters Adriana and Luciana, the bride and future bride of each son. The remainder of the play is concerned with reuniting this family.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

William Shakespeare, A Very Peculiar History uniquely explores the life and works of the widely-regarded greatest writer of the English language. Through dispelling common myths (Could his father really not read or write? What really happened during 'the Lost Years'? Why did he retire from writing while only in his early 40s?) and revealing fascinating trivia, this book attempts to answer many of the often-disputed questions surrounding the life of the nation's favourite playwright. We learn about Shakespeare's family and childhood, and, with much reference to his most famous works, why his writing has endured the test of time and remains endlessly adaptable.

Citizen Quinn Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Citizen Quinn tells the staggering story of the rise and fall of Ireland's richest man: Sean Quinn. A few years ago, Sean Quinn was ranked among the two hundred richest people in the world, with a personal fortune of some $6 billion. Today he is bust, and his businesses have been taken from him. How did it all happen? In Citizen Quinn, Ian Kehoe and Gavin Daly trace the remarkable life of the 'simple farmer's son' who made most of his money through guts and graft long before the excesses of the Celtic Tiger, who brought economic vibrancy to a depressed border region, and who then lost it all through a disastrous move into the insurance business and a multi-billion-euro gamble on the shares of the world's most toxic bank. "Gripping and well-researched ...paints a picture of a man who is delusional about what has happened and the extent to which he is to blame". (Irish Times). "For all those intrigued by a small Cavan farmer's son came to be one of the richest men in the world, and then lost it all, Citizen Quinn is a must-read". (Sunday Business Post). "The book chronicles this truly compelling story, and the story of a compelling man". (Irish Mail on Sunday). "A gripping story told in language that people without an MBA can follow". (Irish Independent). "A great read". (Sean O'Rourke, RTE Radio One).

John Lithgow - Drama Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this riveting and surprising personal history, John Lithgow shares a backstage view of his own struggle, crisis, and discovery, revealing the early life and career that took place out of the public eye and before he became a nationally known star. Above all, Lithgow's memoir is a tribute to his most important influence: his father, Arthur Lithgow, who, as an actor, director, producer, and great lover of Shakespeare, brought theater to John's boyhood. From bedtime stories to Arthur's illustrious productions, performance and storytelling were constant and cherished parts of family life. "Drama" tells of the Lithgows' countless moves between Arthur's gigs-John attended eight secondary schools before flourishing onstage at Harvard - and details with poignancy and sharp recollection the moments that introduced a budding young actor to the undeniable power of theater. Before Lithgow gained fame with the film "The World According to Garp" and the television show "3rd Rock from the Sun", his early years were full of scenes both hilarious and bittersweet. A shrewd acting performance saved him from duty in Vietnam. His involvement with a Broadway costar brought an end to his early first marriage. The theater worlds of New York and London come alive as Lithgow relives his collaborations with renowned performers and directors, including Mike Nichols, Bob Fosse, Liv Ullmann, and Meryl Streep. His ruminations on the nature of theater, film acting, and storytelling cut to the heart of why actors are driven to perform, and why people are driven to watch them do it. Lithgow's memory is clear and his wit sharp, and much of the humor that runs throughout "Drama" comes at his own expense. But he also chronicles the harrowing moments of his past, reflecting with moving candor on friends made and lost, mistakes large and small, and the powerful love of a father who set him on the road to a life onstage. Illuminating, funny, affecting, and thoroughly engrossing, "Drama" raises the curtain on the making of one of our most beloved actors.

David Bronstein, one of the world's strongest players in the mid-20th century, was also one of the most original of chess thinkers. Rapidplay tournaments, clocks with the addition of a certain time after every move, his own version of 'random chess' - these are just a few of the ideas to have sprung from his fertile imagination. After his refusal to join other Soviet grandmasters in denouncing Victor Korchnoi for his defection in 1976, David Bronstein was barred from travelling to the West for 13 long years. When the barriers finally came down in the late-1980s, he eagerly used his newly-gained freedom to travel to numerous countries in Europe, delighting chess enthusiasts with his original ideas and gaining new friends of different nationalities. This book is mainly an account of these travels, on some of which he was accompanied by his wife Tatyana Boleslavskaya, who adds her own intriguing impressions. Also included are games played in various tournaments, which showed that the old tiger had not yet lost his claws. Bronstein also looks back into the past, and in particular to a secret training match played with Victor Korchnoi in 1970, the games of which have never previously been published. Bronstein's co-author, Sergey Voronkov, is a well-known author and editor of numerous chess books and magazines.
