Das Werk "Billy Budd" ist der letzte Roman des amerikanischen Schriftstellers Herman Melville (1819–1891). Verfasst zwischen 1886 und 1891, blieb er lange Zeit verschollen und erst 1924 wiederentdeckt und veröffentlicht. Das Manuskript konnte offensichtlich von dem Autor vor seinem Tode nicht mehr vollendet werden und wirft eine Reihe von Problemen auf, die das Verständnis und auch die Deutung des Romans erschweren.

The first full biography of John Ogdon; a tortured genius and arguably the greatest British pianist of all time. From the beginning of his professional career as a soloist John Ogdon was hailed as a musician of rare understanding and phenomenal technical gifts. Able to play and memorize just about any score at sight, tales of his impossible exploits at the keyboard are legion. Yet Ogdon was a man of extremes and it was this very extremity, while the source of much of his gift, that also led to appalling suffering. Here was a man whose feelings were inexpressibly deep and often tormenting, and Ogdon's glory days, following his coveted Tchaikovsky prize in 1962, came to a sudden end in 1973 when he suffered a severe mental breakdown which led to his being certified insane and made patient of the Court of Protection. Over the course of several harrowing years Ogdon would spend large periods of time in and out of psychiatric wards and halfway houses. The drugs and treatments prescribed sometimes affected his coordination, and his reputation suffered as a result. Yet Ogdon's commitment to his art remained undimmed, and until the end he drew out performances of tremendous beauty and conviction from the depths of his ravaged heart. In this illuminating biography, Charles Beauclerk explores the life of a brilliantly inspired artist, for whom music was both his cross and his salvation.

Flann O'Brien & Modernism

Flann O'Brien & Modernism brings a much-needed refreshment to the state of scholarship on this increasingly recognised but still widely misunderstood 'second generation' modernist. Rather than construe him as a postmodernist, it correctly locates O'Brien's work as the product of a late modernist sensibility and cultural context. Similarly, while there should be no doubt of his Irishness, and his profound debts to Irish language, history and culture, this collection seeks to understand O'Brien's nationally sensitive achievement as the work of an internationalist whose preoccupations reflect global modernist trends. The distinct themes and concerns tracked in Flann O'Brien & Modernism include characterization in branching narrative forms; the ethics and paradoxes of naming; parody and homage; lies and deception; theatricality; sexuality; technology and transport; and the inevitable matter of drink and intoxication. Taken together, these specific topics construct a mosaic image of O'Brien as an exemplary modernist auteur, abreast of all the most salient philosophical and technical concerns affecting literary production in the period immediately before and after World War Two.

Die Filmbesuche des Kinogehers lassen sich nicht als triviale Zerstreuung verstehen, sie offenbaren ihm die Einsamkeit und Hilflosigkeit seiner Suche. Doch jene Suchen, von denen die Filme erzählen, sind verfälscht: Der Held und Außenseiter endet glücklich als Konformist in der Menge. Die Mutter des Kinogehers, die ihr Kind der vornehmen Verwandtschaft überließ, als sie den einfachen zweiten Mann heiratete, eine Schafferin, die das hier und jetzt Notwendige ohne viel Worte tut, gibt dem Sohn einen Hinweis, als sie in ihrer unsentimentalen Art ihm von der Unrast und den Depressionen seines Vaters, des Arztes, berichtet. Schließlich findet der Kinogeher einen Weg, auf dem er zu suchen beginnen kann. Der Weg führt fort von leicht verdientem Geld und schönen Mädchen, fort auch von spektakulärer Leistung ... »Eine seltene wahre Geschichte« nennt der Üersetzer Peter Handke den Roman, den ersten des Autors, der 1961 mit dem National Book Award ausgezeichnet wurde und Walker Percy sofort bekannt machte.

Apocalypse and the Writings on Revelation

DOWNLOAD NOW »
Apocalypse is D. H. Lawrence's last book, written during the winter of 1929-30 when he was dying. It is a radical criticism of our civilisation and a statement of Lawrence's unwavering belief in man's power to create 'a new heaven and a new earth'. Ranging over the entire system of his thought on God and man, on religion, art, psychology and politics, this book is Lawrence's final attempt to convey his vision of man and the universe. Apocalypse was published after Lawrence's death, and in a highly inaccurate text. This edition is the first to reproduce accurately Lawrence's final corrected text on the basis of a thorough examination of the surviving manuscript and typescript. In the introduction the editor has discussed the writing of Apocalypse and its place in Lawrence's works, its publication and reception, and the significance of Lawrence's other writings on the Book of Revelation.
