With this collection, first published in 1975, Heaney located a myth which allowed him to articulate a vision of Ireland--its people, history, and landscape--and which gave his poems direction, cohesion, and cumulative power. In North, the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience, and the idea of the north allows the poet to contemplate the violence on his home ground in relation to memories of the Scandinavian and English invasions which have marked Irish history so indelibly.

**Zum Dahinschmelzen, selbst an eisigen Wintertagen** Blumen aus Eis, Wasser, das in der Luft gefriert, und blattlose Bäume – viele Geschichten ranken sich um das ferne Winter, doch die 16-jährige Rae hat es noch nie zu Gesicht bekommen. Wo sie herkommt, sind die Wiesen immer grün, die Ernten immer reich und das Leben sorgenfrei. Erst als Juni, die Sommerprinzessin, spurlos verschwindet und der Verdacht auf ihren Zwillingsbruder Luca fällt, scheint die Kälte sich auch in ihr Leben zu schleichen. Um ihm zu helfen, begibt sich Rae auf die lange Reise in das Königreich von Frost und Kälte und trifft unterwegs auf North, den Jungen mit Augen so kalt wie der Winter selbst. North versteht zwischen den Jahreszeiten zu wandeln wie kein anderer, aber sein Vertrauen zu gewinnen, ist alles andere als einfach… //Textauszug: Ihre straffen Schultern entspannten sich ein wenig und sie lehnte ihren Rücken gegen seine Brust. Seine Körperwärme und das Adrenalin hatten die Kälte aus ihren Gliedern vertrieben. Sie zählte nicht länger seine Herzschläge, aber ihre Finger lagen noch immer um Norths Handgelenk. Fasziniert strich sie seine Handinnenseite hinauf. »Du bist ganz warm«, sagte Rae verwundert. »Was hast du erwartet?« Sie konnte sein Lächeln nicht sehen, aber sie spürte es hinter seinen Worten. »Wintermänner sind nicht aus Eis.«// //Alle Bände der märchenhaften Reihe: -- Winteraugen (North & Rae 1) -- Sommerkälte (North & Rae 2)// Die »North & Rae«-Reihe ist abgeschlossen.

Women and Power in Native North America

Power is understood to be manifested in a multiplicity of ways: through cosmology, economic control, and formal hierarchy. In the Native societies examined, power is continually created and redefined through individual life stages and through the history of the society. The important issue is autonomy - whether, or to what extent, individuals are autonomous in living their lives. Each author demonstrates that women in a particular cultural area of aboriginal North America had (and have) more power than many previous observers have claimed.

**Märchenhaft romantisch…** Die Hochzeit zwischen dem Winterprinzen und der Sommerprinzessin soll den Königreichen endlich den lang ersehnten Frieden bringen. Doch das Bündnis wird im letzten Moment verhindert und Frost und Kälte legen sich über das einstige Reich ewiger Wärme. Aber nicht nur Sommer schwebt in Gefahr, auch der Herbstwald droht zu sterben und mit ihm all seine Magie. Inzwischen sucht Rae noch immer nach einer Möglichkeit, den Zauber zu brechen, der North außerhalb des Waldes an die Gestalt einer Eule bindet. North, den Jungen mit Augen so kalt wie der Winter selbst, der Raes Herz aus dem Takt bringt und ohne den sie nie wieder sein will. Aber was geschieht, wenn alle Magie stirbt? //Textauszug: Erst das Flattern von Flügeln ließ Rae aufsehen. North war knapp vor ihr im Gras gelandet, den eisblauen Blick auf sie gerichtet. Gerade wünschte sie sich nichts sehnlicher, als den echten North vor sich zu haben. Einen Jungen aus Fleisch und Blut und kein magisches Tier. Sie brauchte seine Nähe so dringend. Jemanden, der sie in den Arm nahm und ihr sagte, dass alles gut werden würde.// //Alle Bände der märchenhaften Reihe: -- Winteraugen (North & Rae 1) -- Sommerkälte (North & Rae 2)// Die »North & Rae«-Reihe ist abgeschlossen.
