The 'Collection of British Authors,' or, as it is more popularly known on the European Continent, the 'Tauchnitz Edition,' was instituted in 1841, at Leipsic, by one of the most distinguished of German publishers, the late Baron Bernhard Tauchnitz, whose son is now at the head of the house. The father records that he was 'incited to the undertaking by the high opinion and enthusiastic fondness which I have ever entertained for English literature: a literature springing from the selfsame root as the literature of Germany, and cultivated in the beginning by the same Saxon race.... As a German-Saxon it gave me particular pleasure to promote the literary interest of my Anglo-Saxon cousins, by rendering English literature as universally known as possible beyond the limits of the British Empire.' In another place, Baron Tauchnitz describes 'the mission' of his Collection to be the 'spreading and strengthening the love for English literature outside of England and her Colonies.' Baron Tauchnitz early felt that the general title of the series, 'Collection of British Authors,' was a misnomer,vi which might even give offence to an important branch of the English-speaking race; for, though Bulwer and Dickens led off in the Collection, 'Pelham' being the first volume issued and 'The Pickwick Papers' the second, the fourth volume, added at the beginning of the second year of publication, in 1842, was Fenimore Cooper's 'The Spy,' followed in the same year by a second volume of the same author. Furthermore, the year 1843 opened with Washington Irving's 'Sketch Book,' immediately followed by a third novel by Cooper; and, though it was not till 1850 that another American work gained admittance into this charmed circle, not fewer than three of Irving's books succeeded one another in the single twelvemonth. In 1852, Hawthorne was welcomed with 'The Scarlet Letter' and Mrs.

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
4,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The story and characters in Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre-Dame have resonated with succeeding generations since its publication in 1831. It has tempted filmmakers, and most recently animators, who have exploited its dramatic content to good effect but have inevitably lost some of the grays that make the original text so compelling. From Victor Hugo's flamboyant imagination came Quasimodo, the grotesque bell ringer; La Esmeralda, the sensuous gypsy dancer; and the haunted archdeacon Claude Frollo. Hugo set his epic tale in the Paris of 1482 under Louis XI and meticulously re-created the day-to-day life of its highest and lowest inhabitants. Written at a time of perennial political upheaval in France, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is the product of an emerging democratic sensibility and prefigures the teeming masterpiece Les Misérables, which Hugo would write thirty years later. He made the cathedral the centerpiece of the novel and called it Notre-Dame de Paris. (It received its popular English title at the time of its second translation in 1833.) Hugo wrote that his inspiration came from a carving of the word 'fatality' in Greek that he had found in the cathedral. The inscription had been eradicated by the time the book was published, and Hugo feared that Notre-Dame's Gothic splendor might soon be lost to the contemporary fad for tearing down old buildings. Notre-Dame has survived as one of the great monuments of Paris, and Hugo's novel is a fitting celebration of it, a popular classic that is proving to be just as enduring. The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foun-dation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hard-bound editions of important works of liter-ature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torchbearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inau-gurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.

Happy & Gluten-Free: Lifestyle Guide: Fast Trac...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A simple, practical guide to living a happy, gluten-free lifestyle. This book is a modern approach combined with effective, ancient Chinese qigong, a solution for gluten intolerance that will help you from the inside out! This practical guide contains what is probably the most unique approach to gluten intolerance you will see, due to a very special coauthorship. Sifu William Lee's best-selling Amazon titles are assisting and healing thousands of people - this book will do the same. Anne Peterson, on another hand, has the biggest qualification ever - being a mother of two children with developed gluten intolerance. Combined with her expertise in vegan and health food, this makes her a real-life expert on the topics. Being a combined effort, this book is not meant for people looking for theories or statistics. It is loaded with very practical and effective solutions, information, and tips: This book is created out of a need. A combined effort: Having two children with developed gluten intolerance has forced Anne Peterson and her family down a path of many tribulations; experimenting and searching for the best ways to live on a gluten-free diet has become Anne's life mission. As a passionate proponent of living a healthy lifestyle and eating a healthy (vegan) diet, she probably has a great advantage over someone without her experience. Nevertheless, new horizons of living with and healing gluten intolerance opened as soon she came in contact with Sifu William Lee's books and teachings. Healing from the inside out: Most people still consider the practices of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to be complicated. But if you take a look at any of the books written by Sifu Lee, you will realize the truth is very different. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Birgitta Bernhard.

How to Be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and their Caregivers is a life-affirming, instructive, and inspiring book about living gracefully and purposefully with the challengesfaced by those with chronic pain or illness. These conditions, while not always life-threatening, are life-disrupting and stressful. The audiobook contains over two dozen tools and practices to help people live skillfully and to find equanimity and joy despite the profound changes in their lives. A recurring theme in the audiobook is that, although our bodies may be in pain or otherwise disabled, our minds can be at peace. The book is Buddhist-inspired but is non-parochial; it is intended to help everyone. Until she had to retire due to illness, Toni Bernhard was a law professor for 22 years at the University of California-Davis, serving six years as the law school's dean of students. She had a longstanding Buddhist practice and co-led a weekly meditation group with her husband. How to Be Sick won the 2011 Nautilus Gold Book Award in Self-Help/Psychology and was named one of the Best Books of 2010 by Spirituality and Practice. Her new book is titled How to Wake Up: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide to Navigating Joy and Sorrow. She can be found online at www.tonibernhard.com 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deon Vozov.

Quick guide to vegan diet and lifestyle - a practical manual that will assist your going and staying vegan. Switching to a vegan diet almost three decades ago, Mrs. Peterson grew more and more passionate about the vegan lifestyle, promoting it and assisting others in various matters connected to the vegan diet and lifestyle. Anne has managed to channel three decades of experience into this short, practical, and easy-to-use form. Warning: This is not a cookbook; if you are looking for a collection of recipes and nothing else, you probably do not want this book. However Vegan (Go and Stay) Manual will definitely enthuse your (vegan cooking) creativity and ideas, plus it will do for you so much more. Offering down-to-earth guidelines, practical information, and advice focused on health and well-being, Anne Peterson is avoiding all fluff, philosophical approaches, and theories (that we normally find in most of the vegan books not based on recipes). No one has to be worried about the title - this work in fact is a manual. Vegan (Go and Stay) Manual is going to help not only those men and women who consider switching to veganism but also those who are already familiar with theory and practice of the vegan way of living. In essence what you see in front of you is quite a unique, short, yet very useful piece of information. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Birgitta Bernhard.
