Five years in the writing by one of science fiction´s most honored authors, Doomsday Book is a storytelling triumph. Connie Willis draws upon her understanding of the universalities of human nature to explore the ageless issues of evil, suffering and the indomitable will of the human spirit. For Kivrin, preparing an on-site study of one of the deadliest eras in humanity´s history was as simple as receiving inoculations against the diseases of the fourteenth century and inventing an alibi for a woman traveling alone. For her instructors in the twenty-first century, it meant painstaking calculations and careful monitoring of the rendezvous location where Kivrin would be received. But a crisis strangely linking past and future strands Kivrin in a bygone age as her fellows try desperately to rescue her. In a time of superstition and fear, Kivrin-barely of age herself-finds she has become an unlikely angel of hope during one of history´s darkest hours. Praise for Doomsday Book ´´A stunning novel that encompasses both suffering and hope. . . . The best work yet from one of science fiction´s best writers.´´-The Denver Post ´´Splendid work-brutal, gripping and genuinely harrowing, the product of diligent research, fine writing and well-honed instincts, that should appeal far beyond the normal science-fiction constituency.´´-Kirkus Reviews (starred review) ´´The world of 1348 burns in the mind´s eye, and every character alive that year is a fully recognized being. . . . It becomes possible to feel . . . that Connie Willis did, in fact, over the five years Doomsday Book took her to write, open a window to another world, and that she saw something there.´´-The Washington Post Book World

´Joking is teaching, so take care to listen - Don´t look at just the joke´s form of expression. To jesters every serious thing´s hilarious, While to the wise hilarious jokes are serious´ Rumi is the greatest mystic poet to have written in Persian, and the Masnavi is his masterpiece. Divided into six books and consisting of some 26,000 verses, the poem was designed to convey a message of divine love and unity to the disciples of Rumi´s Sufi order, known today as the Whirling Dervishes. Like the earlier books, Book Four interweaves amusing stories with homilies to instruct pupils in understanding of God´s meaning. It has a special focus on the mystical knowledge of the spiritual guide, elaborated through stories such as Solomon´s freeiration to the Queen of Sheba, and animal fables. This is the first ever verse translation of Book Four of the Masnavi. It follows the original by presenting Rumi´s most mature mystical teachings in simple and attractive rhyming couplets.
A wide-ranging exploration of the creative power of literary tradition, from Chaucer to the present In literary and cultural studies, ´´tradition´´ is a word everyone uses but few address critically. In Reading Old Books , Peter Mack offers a wide-ranging exploration of the creative power of literary tradition, from the middle ages to the twenty-first century, revealing in new ways how it helps writers and readers make new works and meanings. Reading Old Books argues that the best way to understand tradition is by examining the moments when a writer takes up an old text and writes something new out of a dialogue with that text and the promptings of the present situation. The book examines Petrarch as a user, instigator, and victim of tradition. It shows how Chaucer became the first great English writer by translating and adapting a minor poem by Boccaccio. It investigates how Ariosto, Tasso, and Spenser made new epic meanings by playing with assumptions, episodes, and phrases translated from their predecessors. It analyzes how the Victorian novelist Elizabeth Gaskell drew on tradition to address the new problem of urban deprivation in Mary Barton . And, finally, it looks at how the Kenyan writer Ngu~gi~ wa Thiong´o, in his 2004 novel Wizard of the Crow , reflects on biblical, English literary, and African traditions. Drawing on key theorists, critics, historians, and sociologists, and stressing the international character of literary tradition, Reading Old Books illuminates the not entirely free choices readers and writers make to create meaning in collaboration and competition with their models.
Hier wird eine Geschichte erzählt von Menschen dieser Zeit, die alle mehr oder weniger wissen, dass unsere Art zu leben, mit Luft, Wasser, Erde, mit Pflanzen, Tieren, mit sich und anderen umzugehen, nicht mehr lange trägt. Und dass es überlebenswichtig ist, darauf zu reagieren. Wichtiger als eine Fünf in Mathe, eine Niederlage des HSV oder ein paar Falten mehr im Gesicht. Daraus wäre der einfache Schluss zu ziehen: Sie müssen ihr Leben ändern. Das tun sie. Zum Teil. Unterschiedlich.Schwierig ist dies auch, weil so viel anderes ja bleibt: jung sein und alt werden, die Schule bestehen und einen Beruf finden, arbeiten und Geld verdienen, Kinder großziehen, in den Ruhestand gehen, lieben und sterben.Und da ist dieser Booker, den es als Kind aus dem weiten Grasland Nordamerikas in eine kleine Stadt im Norden Deutschlands verschlagen hat, der Klarheit gewinnen möchte über sein Woher und Wohin und dabei ganz eigene Spuren hinterlässt bei Menschen, die ihm begegnen, denn: Booker war anders.
