Aktuell - kritisch - facettenreich.<br />Die neue Ausgabe mit Interviews, Porträts, Hintergrundgeschichten und vielen<br />Rezensionen zu ausgewählten Neuerscheinungen.<br /><br />Am Cover der aktuellen Ausgabe präsentieren wir mit der Nobelpreisträgerin Toni Morrison eine der wichtigsten Gegenwartsautorinnen der USA. Der neue Roman der 86-jährigen ist hochaktuell und zeigt sie wieder einmal als scharfsinnige Chronistin unserer Zeit. Dabei erzählt sie geradliniger und rasanter denn je. "Gott, hilf dem Kind" handelt vom alltäglichen Rassismus - und davon, wie auch Mutter-Tochter-Beziehungen nicht vor diesem und anderen Abgründen gefeit sind.<br /><br />Die Stadt kann mehr bieten als Stress und Lärm. Welche Möglichkeiten wir haben, den urbanen Lebensraum mitzugestalten, ist Gegenstand mehrerer interessanter Neuerscheinungen, die Alexander Kluy für Sie gelesen hat. Frischen Wind in das Genre des Tatsachenromans bringt Emmanuel Carrère, er ist einer der meistgelesenen Autoren Frankreichs. Und mit Shan Sa, Mare Kandre und Alejandro Zambra möchten wir Ihnen wieder interessante literarische Stimmen aus der ganzen Welt vorstellen.
The Road Not Taken and Other Poems

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Winner of four Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, Robert Frost is best remembered for his depictions of early 20th century rural New England life and for his command of American colloquial speech. Criticized by some as being out of touch with the Modernist movement in poetry exemplified by contemporaries such as T. S. Eliot and E. E. Cummings, it is probably in fact his adherence to traditionalism that so endeared him to his fans. Literary critic Randall Jarrell described Frost as one of “the greatest of the American poets of [the 20th] century” whose works were serious and honest and although often dealt with rather simple subjects were underlaid with an intense thematic complexity. For example the title poem of this collection “The Road Not Taken” is often interpreted as one about regret over choices not made and exemplifying the benefit of not following the crowd. Frost implied that it is however a comment about indecision and finding meaning in inconsequential decisions. Collected together here are three of Frost’s earliest collections, “A Boy’s Will”, first published in 1913, “North of Boston”, first published in 1914, and “Mountain Interval”, first published in 1916.

And their misadventures-in gypsy caravans, stolen sports cars, and their Wild Wood-continue to capture readers' imaginations and warm their hearts long after they grow up.

<DIV><STRONG>Finally, one of the most of the most beloved books every published—explained. </STRONG><BR><BR><EM>The Little Prince</EM> is revered around the world. Two hundred million copies have been sold in 270 languages; it is the fourth best-selling book of all time. Part of its allure is that is seems incredibly wise but so simple it is read as a work for children. Yet its meaning is elusive, and its place amid the writings of an adventurer and war hero acclaimed for dramatic bestsellers like <EM>Night Flight</EM> and <EM>Flight to Arras</EM> is mysterious. <BR><BR>In this elegant, carefully argued book, Pierre Lassus reexamines the story of <EM>The Little Prince</EM> against the facts of Saint-Exupéry's own extraordinary life, from his cherished but fatherless childhood in aristocratic poverty to his career as a pioneering pilot. His plane had broken down in the desert before. He had adopted a fox, when posted at the Spanish fort of Cape Juby, in southern Morocco. He had known the world of business before becoming pilot; he had also known unrequited love. Like his little protagonist's, his body was never found after his plane disappeared in World War II. He was working on his spiritual autobiography when he died, and there too, Lassus finds resonances and keys to the understated spirituality of his last great book. <BR></DIV>

<DIV><P><B>Celebrate the 90th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh and discover the real places that inspired the Hundred Acre Wood</B><BR /><BR /> Delve into the home of the world’s most beloved bear! <I>The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh</I> explores the magical landscapes where Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends live and play. The Hundred Acre Wood—the setting for Winnie-the-Pooh’s adventures—was inspired by Ashdown Forest, a wildlife haven that spans more than 6,000 acres in southeast England. In the pages of this enchanting book you can visit the ancient black walnut tree on the edge of the forest that became Pooh’s house, go deep into the pine trees to find Poohsticks Bridge, and climb up to the top of the enchanted Galleons Lap, where Pooh says goodbye to Christopher Robin. You will discover how Milne's childhood connection with nature and his role as a father influenced his famous stories, and how his close collaboration with illustrator E. H. Shepard brought those stories to life. This charming book also serves as a guide to the plants, animals, and places of the remarkable Ashdown Forest, whether you are visiting in person or from the comfort of your favorite armchair. In a delightful narrative, enriched with Shepard’s original illustrations, hundreds of color photographs, and Milne’s own words, you will rediscover your favorite characters and the magical place they called home.</P></DIV>
