Secrets, lies and murder in the Australian wilderness.... A nail-biting new novel of romantic suspense by the award-winning author of Dead Heat and Storm Clouds, Bronwyn Parry. 'Dammit, Tess, he doesn't seem worth protecting.' 'I'm not protecting him, Sarge,' she said. She dropped her gaze, biting her lip, and for the first time in his experience she spoke in a small voice. 'I'm protecting me.' For police officers Steve Fraser and Tess Ballard, a split-second decision saves the lives of 50 members of a cult - but also puts their careers on the line. Tess' work is everything to her; she's forged a new life through sheer determination, so when her past returns to haunt her, Steve must race through wild country if he is to save the people he most cares about. In Sunset Shadows, the thrilling new audiobook by multiaward-winning author Bronwyn Parry, you will feel immersed in the dramatic beauty, isolation, wind and the sun of the deep Australian bush - and its sinister shadows....

Starring Brian Blessed and Rory Bremner, 1001 Arabian Nights is the first tale from The Opus Pocus: a series of symphonies transformed into funny, action-packed, musical audiobooks and accompanying comic books, helping children to discover the magic of classical music, starting with Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's dazzling composition, Scheherazade. Here is the first chapter of the first story from The Opus Pocus: 1001 Arabian Nights or The Princess, the Pirate and the Baboon! It's a hairy tale of a princess, a sultan, a genie, and a shipwreck, and an unlucky pirate who keeps getting turned into a baboon! Also included is the orchestral music, providing children with an introduction to the first movement of Rimsky-Korsakov's magical symphonic work. 1001 Arabian Nights stars Brian Blessed as the Great Sultan Shakriar, Rory Bremner as Sinbad the Hairy Pirate, with Jess Murphy as Princess Sheherazade and Sam Morris as the narrator, Grandma Dingley. Other pirates, wizards, and various characters were performed by Nigel Garton, backed by an orchestra conducted by Greg Arrowsmith with a violin solo by Sarah Sexton, mastered by Andrew Smillie. It was written and directed by Matt Parry, with cover illustration by Faye Simms and design by Mandy Norman. Funded by a Kickstarter campaign and winning the national Intuit StartUp Britain competition, The Opus Pocus needs your help to bring classical music to thousands - millions - of children worldwide!

Described in the Radio Times (27 July 2015) as 'A remarkable, unique institution lying at the heart of British life', the Three Choirs Festival celebrated its three-hundred-year anniversary in 2015. Rotating each summer between the English cathedral cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester, the Festival is a week-long programme of choral and orchestral concerts, cathedral services, solo and chamber music recitals, master classes, talks, theatre and exhibitions. At the heart of the modern festival are the daily services of Choral Evensong, representing the tradition of Anglican music and liturgy, and the large-scale evening concerts featuring established favourites of the British classical choral tradition with works drawn from a broader, more international musical canvas. Many special commissions and other works, including compositions by British composers such as Jonathan Harvey, James Macmillan, Judith Bingham and John McCabe, and composers from abroad, such as Gerard Schurmann, Jackson Hill and Torsten Rasch, have received their first performances at Three Choirs. Originally published in 1992, this revised edition bringsthe history of the oldest surviving non-competitive music festival in Britain thoroughly up to date. It traces the development of the Festival from its origins in the early eighteenth century to its tercentenary in 2015, along the way touching on the many musical milestones - premieres by Parry, Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Saint-Saëns, Holst, and Howells, among others - and luminaries - Sullivan, Stanford, Dvorák, Delius, Bax, and Britten, to name but a few- associated with it. British music enthusiasts especially will find this new edition invaluable. ANTHONY BODEN is a writer with particular interests in music and literature.

John Donne, Coterie Poet
86,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Arthur F. Marotti has produced the first systematic study of John Donne's poetry as coterie literature, offering fresh interpretations of the poems in their biographical and sociohistorical contexts. It will be of interest and value to students and scholars of English Renaissance literature, to critics interested in the application of revisionist history to literary study, and to those concerned with the processes by which literature became institutionalized in the early modern period. Donne treated poetry as an avocation, restricting his verse to carefully chosed readers: friends, acquaintances, patrons, and the woman he later married. This study employs socio-historical and psychoanalytic methods to examine this poetry as work designed for readers to respond in knowledgeable ways to a complex interplay of literary text and social context. Marotti argues that it is necessary to relate literary language to the languages of social, economic, and political transactions and to define the social and ideological affiliations of literary genres and modes. After setting Donne's practice in the framework of the sixteenth-century systems of manuscript literary transmission, Marotti treats the verse chronologically and according to audience, paying particular attention to the rhetorical enactment of the author's relationships to peers and superiors through the conflicting styles of egalitarian assertion, social iconoclasm, and deferential politeness. Marotti relates the poetry to Donne's contemporary prose, discussing the author's choice of various literary forms in the context of his sociopolitical life as well in terms of the shift from Elizabethan to Jacobean rule, the latter change resulting in a realignment of genres within the culture's literary system. He reads Donne's formal satires, humanist verse letters, erotic elegies, and commentary epistles aware of the social coordinates of those particular genres, and defines the markedly different circumstances to which Donne's libertine, courtly, satiric, sentimental, complimentary, and religious lyrics individually belonged. Marotti deals also with Donne's inventive mixing of genres in both shorter and longer poems. Marotti's groundbreaking work offers new models of historical interpretation of Donne's poetry, complementing previous formalist, intellectual-historical, and literary-historical readings. It particularly highlights the importance of attending to the socioliterary conditions of literature designed for manuscript transmission rather than for publication, work that includes, for example, much of the lyric poetry of Renaissance England. ''Marotti recreates the conditions of coterie writing convincingly, and the poetry gives up more of its secrets as a result.'' --Graham Parry, London Times Higher Education Supplement ''. . . a study which no serious student of Donne can ignore.'' --Cedric C. Brown, Review of English Studies ''. . . a thought-provoking and lucid volume that illuminates both the poetry and the social and autobiographical forces behind it. ''. . . [Marotti] frees Donne form the constraining boxes in which many other critics have crammed his work and in so doing offers a significant new reading of his entire poetic canon.'' --Heather Dubrow, Renaissance Quarterly ''This is a powerful testament to Donne's poetic achievement and as an account of a poetic career in an unsettled, manuscript culture, it is a definitive statement of the man, the occasions, and the work.'' --Arthur F.
