Revised throughout and enhanced by coloured artwork and text features, this edition will support the new OCR specification for Classical Greek (first teaching 2016). Part 1 covers the basics, whilst Part 2 introduces a wider range of grammatical forms and constructions, with a vocabulary of 435 words and reading material from Socrates and the Sophists to the world of myth, and finally to extended passages of lightly adapted Herodotus.

Wie Eleanor Oliphant die Liebe suchte und sich selbst dabei fand Eleanor Oliphant ist anders als andere Menschen. Eine Pizza bestellen, mit Freunden einen schönen Tag verbringen, einfach so in den Pub gehen? Für Eleanor undenkbar! Und das macht ihr Leben auf Dauer unerträglich einsam. Erst als sie sich verliebt, wagt sie sich zaghaft aus ihrem Schneckenhaus - und lernt dabei nicht nur die Welt, sondern auch sich selbst noch einmal neu kennen. Mit ihrem Debüt "Ich, Eleanor Oliphant" ist Gail Honeyman ein anrührender Roman mit einer unvergesslichen Hauptfigur gelungen. Ihre erfrischend schräge Sicht auf die Dinge zeigt uns, was im Leben wirklich zählt. Liebe. Hoffung. Ehrlichkeit. Und vor allen Dingen die Freundschaft. "Absolut mitreißend." Jojo Moyes

Was ist Wirklichkeit? Existieren Raum und Zeit tatsächlich, wenn wir uns anschicken, die elementarsten Grundlagen unserer Existenz zu erforschen? Wie viel davon können wir überhaupt verstehen? Carlo Rovelli beschäftigt sich seit vielen Jahren damit, die Grenzen unseres Verstehens zu erweitern. In diesem Buch nimmt er uns mit auf eine Reise, die von dem Realitätsverständnis der griechischen Klassik bis zur Schleifenquantengravitation führt. Ein großer Physiker unserer Zeit macht sich auf, uns ein neues Welt-Bild zu zeichnen: mit einem physikalischen Universum ohne Zeit, einer Raumzeit, die aus Schleifen und Körnchen besteht und in der Unendlichkeit nicht existiert. Einer Kosmologie, die ohne Urknall und Paralleluniversen auskommt und hier zum ersten Mal von einem ihrer «Erfinder» für ein breites Publikum einfach und ausführlich erklärt wird. Ein Buch über «die großen Herausforderungen der gegenwärtigen Naturwissenschaften, die all unser Wissen über die Natur in Frage stellen» (Rovelli).

Teresa lebt mit ihren Eltern in Turin, doch die Sommerferien verbringt sie jedes Jahr bei der Großmutter in Apulien, mit den Nachbarjungen Bern, Tommaso und Nicola. Die vier Freunde gehen zusammen schwimmen und wandern, erzählen sich alles. Sie sind unzertrennlich, bis zwischen Bern und Teresa etwas Neues entsteht: die erste große Liebe. Aber im Jahr darauf ist Bern nicht mehr da. Zutiefst enttäuscht verbannt Teresa Apulien aus ihrer Erinnerung. Erst zum Begräbnis der Großmutter fährt sie wieder hin. Am Rande des Friedhofs steht ein Mann in einem langen Mantel: Bern. Sie gehen aufeinander zu. Doch Bern verschwindet ein zweites Mal aus Teresas Leben. Über zwanzig Jahre - von den Neunzigern bis heute - erzählt Paolo Giordano die Geschichte einer Frau und eines Mannes, die sich immer wieder finden und verlieren. Mit einer emotionalen Präzision wie kein zweiter schreibt der promovierte Physiker Giordano über Liebe, Freundschaft und Verlust. Ein Meisterwerk über das Entstehen und Verschwinden von Gefühlen. Existentiell, eindringlich

Gibt es ein Werk, das für uns so wichtig und prägend ist wie Ilias und Odyssee für die Antike? »Ja!«, sagt der Erfinder der modernen Fantasy: Die nordische Sage von Sigurd und Gudrún! Und J.R.R.Tolkien dichtete selbst den ehernen Stoff der Edda und des Wölsungenlieds für unsere Zeit neu. Lesen Sie, wie Sigurd den fürchterlichen Drachen Fáfnir tötet. Wie er die schlafende Brynhild erweckt aus einem Feuerwall. Und wie am Hof der Nibelungen große Liebe entbrannte und auch großer Hass. Tolkien schöpft hier ein Werk von unvergleichlicher Sprachkraft und einem Rhythmus, der alle Sinne erfasst. Der reich kommentierte Band gibt Tolkiens Originalverse neben der deutschen Übersetzung wieder.
