The Critical Reception of Herta Müller in the G...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

After being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2009, Herta Müller attained great prominence around the world. Commentators, especially in English-speaking countries, seemed shocked by the decision. One of the primary concerns was that Müller was relatively unknown. This work seeks to address this and other concerns by looking at reviews of her works in German- and English-language publications both before and after the Nobel Prize was awarded. This thesis analyses chronologically the reception of her books beginning with Niederungen in 1982 and ending with the reception of her novel Atemschaukel in 2009. It compares the reception of the original German text to that of the English translation, therefore only works which have been translated and published in English are discussed. While Müller's work did not top the bestseller charts, at least before the Nobel Prize, she was hardly the completely unknown author that some in the English-language media believed. This work seeks to present trends in the reception as well as provide a basis for further study of the reception of Herta Müller.

Ethiopian biblical commentaries are a corpus of ancient, traditional teaching that comment on all books of the Bible following a relatively uniform methodology. This Ethiopian tradition is an heir of the traditional branches of Antiochene and Alexandrian Eastern Christianity.The existence of these exegetical commentaries is practically unknown outside the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, whose mission has been to keep and faithfully transmit them from generation to generation. Most of the commentaries still are in the form of privately owned parchment manuscripts. These have been handed down from masters to disciples until today.This volume presents a critical edition of nine manuscripts containing commentaries on prophet Micah. It also provides an English translation of the originals written in the Gecez and Amharic languages as well as a study of the literary form of these commentaries.

Most biographies feature people who are famous or notorious, no acquaintance of their biographer, and dead. Kiss & Tell is a bold and irreverent challenge to these biographical norms which sets out to chart the life of someone unknown, intimate with their biographer and still alive. The result is a witty and perceptive portrait of a young woman and a highly original and entertaining novel.'A young writer of highly original intelligence . . . His book is delightful' John Bayley, London Review of Books 'Alain de Botton is the boy wonder of contemporary English literature . . . a brilliantly erudite and amusing wonder' Cressida Connolly, Tatler'Characteristically engaging . . . Exploring the tragicomedy sparked by our baffling inability to understand one another, de Botton's seductive art is to make us seem like strangers to ourselves' Julian Loose, Sunday Times'Such a writer could write a biography of a broomstick, as Dr Johnson suggested, and it would come alive under his pen' Philip Glazebrook, Spectator'Rich, intelligent and finely written . . . the perfect antidote for those suffering from a lack of conviction in their own uniqueness' Paul Sussman, Independent on Sunday

Unquestionable, to learn languages is essential today. Teachers can find a huge range of good objects for their English lessons. Publishers give a lot of kinds of books or materials to help them in their work.One of my colleagues acquainted me with teaching with dramas few years ago. I realized, she used dramatization during her teaching process: in Maths, in Geography, etc. and even in the development of her students'' personalities.It was not only interesting, but brand new for me. This may perhaps be an entirely unknown field for you, as well. Nevertheless, although you may need more preparation of your lessons, it is worth using and playing tales with the tools of dramatization in English lessons to train (very) young students.Now, I would like to give a bit taste and enter you in this amazing world.In addition, you can find some information about the history of tales, about some tales writers, but, as I promise it in my title, first and foremost there is more information about Rudyard Kipling and Oscar Wilde as tale-writers.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Bookman's Tale comes a new novel about an obsessive bibliophile's quest through time to discover a missing manuscript, the unknown history of an English Cathedral, and the secret of the Holy GrailArthur Prescott is happiest when surrounded by the ancient books and manuscripts of the Barchester Cathedral library. Increasingly, he feels like a fish out of water among the concrete buildings of the University of Barchester, where he works as an English professor. His one respite is his time spent nestled in the library, nurturing his secret obsession with the Holy Grail and researching his perennially unfinished guidebook to the medieval cathedral.But when a beautiful young American named Bethany Davis arrives in Barchester charged with the task of digitizing the library's manuscripts, Arthur's tranquility is broken. Appalled by the threat modern technology poses to the library he loves, he sets out to thwart Bethany, only to find in her a kindred spirit with a similar love for knowledge and books-and a fellow Grail fanatic.Bethany soon joins Arthur in a quest to find the lost Book of Ewolda, the ancient manuscript telling the story of the cathedral's founder. And when the future of the cathedral itself is threatened, Arthur and Bethany's search takes on grave importance, leading the pair to discover secrets about the cathedral, about the Grail, and about themselves."Lovett's unique work combines literary and historical research with classic elements of cozy mysteries, classic love stories, and exciting adventure tales to create a true genre-blending masterpiece. At once funny, heartwarming, and suspenseful, The Lost Book of the Grail has something for every kind of reader, and every kind of book-lover, alike." -Bustle
