Interrogating Postmodernism
66,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The revival of Alchemy in modern fiction has taken a stride on Postmodernism. Interestingly enough, the alchemical tradition of English Literature, which is obvious in the works of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Jonson through the Romantics to the modern age and then the positive tradition further carried on in the landmark work in Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist, Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code and its major assertion in JK Rowling's Harry Potter novels. The present work establishes that the Harry Potter series is not a promotional literature of black magic or witchcraft and it is also not a political discourse per se. On the other hand, the underlying theme of the Harry Potter books is personal transformation leading to Self-realization, what in this work is called 'the alchemy of the soul'. Against the background of Postmodernism, the seven-series fiction has been analyzed and the outcome is shockingly revealing, that the Harry Potter series offers a serious critique of Postmodernism as a philosophy and that the revival of Alchemy both as a philosophy and as a psychology has subverted and dethroned Postmodernism from its hegemony and what's more magic has threatened to replace Postmodeernism!

Harry Potter crosses over
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I'm a believer. I believe that somewhere, surrounded by our everyday lives, impossible to notice for a muggle like me, a whole secret world like Harry Potter's might be concealed by some huge invisibility cloak. Rowling makes it possible that my son might ask me one day to go to Hogwart's school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he can't read any English, he can, however, only know his beans through the Dutch translation. But does that provoke the same feelings? Does it attend the same audience? And what audience is that? Children, Adults? What exactly is understood by 'children's literature'? To find out, I examined the differences and parallels between adult's and children's books and compared 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' with its Dutch translation. Before the last Potter book appeared, people were wondering whether Harry would live or die. What would happen in number 7? We know by now, but as the last movies are coming up, you will enjoy my partial translation of the forecasts and speculations that were raised in 'Mugglenet.com's What Will Happen in Harry Potter 7: Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Falls in Love and How Will the Adventure Finally End?'

Constructions of Good and Evil in J. K. Rowling...
41,10 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book investigates ideologies in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter by analysing discursive constructions of good and evil. The main approach is a critical discourse analysis, based on and driven by a corpus linguistic investigation of all seven Harry Potter books. The first part of the analysis is the corpus linguistic investigation of the assembled corpora. The key concepts and keywords of the books are determined, followed by an investigation of their main themes. Secondly, gender roles and the discursive construction of men and women are analysed. This includes a small excursion into literary studies as parallels are drawn to women's roles in English literature. The third part is an investigation of prejudice, racism and class ideologies based on ancestry. It outlines how the group of muggles, people without magic, the group of witches and wizards, as well as other humanlike groups, such as house-elves and goblins, construct themselves and how they discriminate against each other. The different reactions to the execution of power imbalances by the oppressed as well as by the privileged groups are outlined and analysed.

Ruled Britannia
46,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ruled Britannia is an alternate history novel by Harry Turtledove, first published in hardcover and paperback by Roc Books in 2002. The book is set in the year 1597, in an alternate universe where the Spanish Armada is successful. The Kingdom of England (and apparently most of Britain) has been conquered and returned to the fold of the Roman Catholic Church under the rule of Queen Isabella, daughter of Philip II of Spain. Queen Elizabeth, deposed, is imprisoned within the Tower of London as her fellow Protestants are burned as heretics by the English Inquisition. The story is seen from the point of view of two famous playwrights: English poet William Shakespeare, and Spanish poet Lope de Vega, supporting characters include contemporaries Christopher Marlowe, Richard Burbage, and Will Kempe.

Erast Fandorin
40,10 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Erast Petrovich Fandorin is a fictional 19th-century Russian detective and the hero of a series of Russian historical detective novels by Boris Akunin. The first novel was published in Russia in 1998, and the latest was published in November 2006. More than 15 million copies of Fandorin novels have been sold as of May 2006, even though the novels were freely available from many Russian web-sites and the hard-copies were relatively expensive by Russian standards. New books in the Fandorin series typically sell over 200,000 copies in the first week alone, with an unparalleled (for mystery novels) first edition of 50,000 copies for the first books to 500,000 copies for the last. In Russia, the Fandorin series rivals The Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter in popularity. The English translations of the novels have been critically acclaimed by, among others, Ruth Rendell.
