The Autobiography of Solomon Maimon
26,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Solomon Maimon's autobiography has delighted readers for more than two hundred years, from Goethe, Schiller, and George Eliot to Walter Benjamin and Hannah Arendt. The American poet and critic Adam Kirsch has named it one of the most crucial Jewish books of modern times. Here is the first complete and annotated English edition of this enduring and lively work. This new edition restores text cut from the abridged 1888 translation by J. Clark Murray, which has long been the only available English edition. Paul Reitter's translation is brilliantly sensitive to the subtleties of Maimon's prose while providing a fluid rendering that contemporary readers will enjoy, and is accompanied by an introduction and notes by Yitzhak Melamed and Abraham Socher that give invaluable insights into Maimon and his extraordinary life. The book also features an afterword by Gideon Freudenthal that provides an authoritative overview of Maimon's contribution to modern philosophy.

The Book of Lost Tales 1
10,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The first of a two-book set that contains the early myths and legends which led to the writing of Tolkien's epic tale of war, The Silmarillion. The Book of Lost Tales stands at the beginning of the entire conception of Middle-earth and Valinor for the Tales were the first form of the myths and legends that came to be called The Silmarillion. Embedded in English legend and English association, they are set in the narrative frame of a great westward voyage over the Ocean by a mariner named Eriol to the lonely Isle where the Elves dwelt; from them he learned their true history, the Lost Tales of Elfinesse. In the Tales are found the earliest accounts of Gods and Elves, Dwarves, Balrogs and Orcs; of the Silmarils and the Two Trees of Valinor; of the geography and cosmology of Tolkien's invented world. This series of fascinating books has now been repackaged to complement the distinctive and classic style of the 'black cover' A-format paperbacks of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.

Food for Thought
15,99 € *

In this book Author George Manus has collected 1001 WORDS FOR THE ROAD from his series of 10 books by the same name, which in both format and content are well suited as reading matter while travelling. Each of the 10 books are presenting short reflections and puns in both English and Norwegian. He has named this book, FOOD for THOUGHT, with subtitle, 1001 short reflections. It contains only the English reflections. The table of contents which is in alphabetical order provides easy access to his 1001 reflections. Most of them have been written over the past few years, while some were put on paper already back in the late 1980s. He is fully aware that quantity does not in any way mean quality, but as he says, who judges good from less good and bad? If adopted literary norms are applied, I suppose it is simple, but if one isn't to judge based on given norms, I suppose it becomes a question of who likes what. If you accept that everyone is right based on their prerequisites, which is hard to deny, maybe you end up with something for everyone? He says that all his short reflection are expressions of his spontaneous thoughts and opinions, based on his prerequisites when they were written. Happy reading January 2021
