My Friend Annabel Lee by MACLANE, Mary

Literatur-Blogs vom 23.02.2019 um 12:16 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
Published in 1903, this selection of dialogues by Mary MacLane entails a mystery of wondering who she is speaking with. Is it the statue she describes at first? Is it an imaginary friend? Is it the author’s alter-ego? Or perhaps, is it a friend she knows in-the-flesh whom the author wished no one to recognize the identity of? These questions are never truly answered for how could a statue send word by postal mail or know some of the deeper vulnerabilities of the author without her knowing them herself? In these talks between herself and Annabel Lee come glimmerings of another time, discussions in the whimsy of personal stories, happenings in the neighbourhood, and the reflections in the deeper meaning of life as well as the bonds of friendship. - Summary by Daryl Wor

Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius, Book 1 by MACHIAVELLI, Niccolò

Literatur-Blogs vom 22.02.2019 um 05:30 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
In "Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius", posthumous work by the author of The Prince, Machiavelli discusses the useful lessons thta could be learnt from the past for his present. As the title mention, the subject of the work is the first ten books of Livy's Ab urbe condita, which cover the expansion of Rome from the legendary monarchy of Romulus to the end of the Third Samnite War (293 BCE). The whole work contains three books, with 142 numbered chapters - perhaps not a coincidence, since Livy's history also contained 142 books. In the first book, the author discusses things that happened inside of Rome as the result of public counsel. - Summary by Leni

cuatro jinetes del apocalipsis, Los by BLASCO IBáñEZ, Vicente

Literatur-Blogs vom 22.02.2019 um 02:15 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
La obra se centra en los acontecimientos acaecidos durante la primera guerra mundial en la que se ven enfrentadas dos familias procedentes del mismo tronco “Julio Madariaga” argentino. Al fallecer éste, sus hijas, Luisa casada con el francés Marcelo Desnoyers y Elena casada con el alemán Karl von Hartrott (ambos trabajaban para Madariaga en su gran hacienda) regresan a Europa, aquellos a París y éstos a Alemania. El protagonista de la obra es Julio Desnoyers, hijo de Luisa y don Marcelo y nieto de Julio Madariaga. La buena posición económica y social de su padre hace que Julio, pintor y bailarín, se dedique a una vida disipada y algo licenciosa, sin ningún sentimiento patriótico. Pero cuando estalla la guerra, Julio se alista en el ejército, ahí sufrirá una gran transformación personal... (Resumen de Montse González)

Practical View of the Prevailing Religious System of Professed Christians, in the Higher and Middle Classes in this Country, Contrasted with Real Christianity, A by WILBERFORCE, William

Literatur-Blogs vom 19.02.2019 um 17:17 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
William Wilberforce was an English politician best known for his leadership in the movement to stop the slave trade. He began his political career in 1780, eventually becoming an independent Member of Parliament (MP) for Yorkshire (1784–1812). In 1785, he became an Evangelical Christian, which resulted in major changes to his lifestyle and a lifelong concern for reform. In 1797, after working on the book for four years, Wilberforce published "A Practical View of the Prevailing Religious System of Professed Christians in the Higher and Middle Classes of This Country Contrasted With Real Christianity." In it, he speaks candidly about the differences between true faith and nominal religion. Through a mix of rational argument, personal testimony, and ardent exhortation, Wilberforce calls for a revival of true Christianity in his country. The book proved to be influential and a best-seller by the standards of the day, with 7,500 copies sold in the first six months. It has also been revived several times since, with some updated translations published in modern English. This recording is of the original text. - Summary by Lillis Joy

Compilation de Pensées, Textes et Poésies by CHATEAUBRIAND, François-René de

Literatur-Blogs vom 19.02.2019 um 14:46 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
Comme l'indique le titre, ce sont différents pensées de l'auteur, sur la vie, l'être humain, aussi la vie politique, avec deux textes, "De la Monarchie selon la Charte", et "Réflexions politiques". Chateaubriand, homme de lettres si talentueux et homme politique, Pair de France, fut un très ardent défenseur de la liberté d'expression, de la monarchie représentative et de la Charte constitutionnelle du 4 juin 1814.
Louis XVIII souhaitait rassembler les Français, bonapartistes, républicains et nostalgiques de l'Ancien régime.
Puis il y eut les "Cent-jours", en 1815.
> Louis XVIII est réfugié à Gand, puis rentre et la Seconde Restauration est établie.
Son neveu, le Duc de Berry, est assassiné en 1820.
Voir, à ce sujet, le livre audio : "Mémoires, lettres et pièces authentiques touchant la vie et la mort du Duc de Berry", de François-René de Chateaubriand, très intéressant, documenté, sur le plan de l'Histoire de France.
Ces deux Livres audio se complètent.
La nature a aussi sa place, ici, avec le joli recueil de dix poésies: "Tableaux de la nature".
- "Nous verrons" est un poème ironique, sur le temps, l’humain, et la politique, les gazettes…
- "Les Tombeaux champêtres" sont une élégie imitée de Gray, 1796, Londres. L'auteur y fut en exil.
Suivent des textes poétiques:
- sur la Révolution, la profanation des tombes royales de la basilique Saint-Denis, Napoléon, Condé et son descendant, le jeune Duc d'Enghien mort en 1804 exécuté dans les fossés de Vincennes, choc absolument intense pour les Monarchistes, écrit en 1812;
- en hommage à la Reine de Prusse, méprisée par Napoléon, écrit à Berlin en 1821;
- "Les Alpes ou l'Italie" écrit en 1822, la vie de l'auteur;
- "Le Départ", Paris 1827, souvenirs de ses voyages et la fin de la vie.

Man and Nature on the Broads by PATTERSON, Arthur Henry

Literatur-Blogs vom 18.02.2019 um 16:16 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
From its man-made origins as a consequence of medieval peat excavations, the Broads of Norfolk and Suffolk have evolved into a natural ecosystem, providing habitat for a diverse range of flora and fauna (some of which are unique to the Broads area), as well as a means of livelihood for the inhabitants of this region. In the company of the book’s author, a self-taught lifelong naturalist and undisputed expert of the Broads (who also wrote under the pen name of John Knowlittle), we discover how the life of the Broads unfolds over the course of a single year. So, why not listen in, and join us as we take an auditory saunter around these incomparable waterways, learn just a little of what life and nature in Broadland is all about and have a mardle or two with some of the old boys and their mawthers, whose families have lived and worked in this expansive landscape and under wide open skies for many generations. - Summary by TND

------
This poem was first published in the October 1838 issue of The Knickerbocker, a New York City magazine. It then appeared in Longfellow's first published book of poems, Voices Of The Night, in 1839. It is an upbeat psalmists answer to the biblical psalm that we are but dust heading for the grave, urging us instead to be heroic, to make the most of our lives, and set a good example for others to follow.

Ὁμήρου Ὀδύσσεια (Ραψῳδία 15) - The Odyssey (Book 15) by HOMER

Literatur-Blogs vom 17.02.2019 um 17:30 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
Ἡ Ὀδύσσεια τοῦ Ὁμήρου ἐντάσσεται στὰ πλαίσια τῶν ἐργασιῶν πού ξεκίνησα ἐδῶ καὶ μερικὰ χρόνια στὴν ἰστοσελίδα μου Projet Homere (Σχέδιο Ὁμήρου (γιὰ τὴν ἑλληνικὴ γλῶσσα στὸ σύνολό της)) - http://www.projethomere.com

Ἡ ἐργασία αὐτὴ ἀφορᾷ τὴν Ραψῳδία O' - Τηλεμάχου πρὸς Εὔμαιον ἄφιξις.

Ἡ Ὀδύσσεια εἶναι ἕνα ἀπὸ τὰ δύο κορυφαία ἔργα τοῦ Ὁμήρου καὶ ταυτοχρόνως τῆς Εὐρωπαϊκῆς λογοτεχνίας καὶ θεωρῶ ὅτι αὐτὰ τὰ σπουδαῖα ἀρχαῖα ἑλληνικὰ λογοτεχνικὰ ἔργα πρέπει νὰ ἠχογραφηθοῦν ἀπὸ ἑλληνικὲς φωνὲς.



Homer's Odyssey is one of the work that I started a few years ago on my website, Projet Homere (Homer Project (For the Greek language as a whole)) - http://www.projethomere.com

This record concerns Book 15. Telemachus Returns.

The Odyssey is one of Homer's two major works and at the same time European literature, so I am convinced that it is important that ancient Greek literary works be recorded by Greek voices.



L 'Odyssée d'Homère fait partie des travaux que j'ai commencés il y a quelques années sur mon site Projet Homère( sur la langue grecque dans sa globalité) : http://www.projethomere.com

Cet enregistrement concerne le chant 15 : Arrivée de Télémaque à la porcherie.

L'Odyssée est une des deux œuvres majeures d'Homère et en même temps de la littérature européenne, aussi je suis persuadée qu'il est important que les anciennes œuvres littéraires grecques soient enregistrées par des voix grecques.

New Republic; or Culture, Faith and Philosophy in an English Country House, The by MALLOCK, William Hurrell

Literatur-Blogs vom 16.02.2019 um 05:19 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
A group of upper class men and women gather together in an English country house to discuss their ideas for a utopia (their "New Republic"). The novel is a satire mocking most of the important figures at Oxford University at the time of publication, with regards to aestheticism and Hellenism. Some of the famous characters that are depicted are Violet Fane/Lady Mary Montgomery Currie (Mrs. Sinclair), Thomas Huxley (Mr. Storks), William Money Hardinge (Mr. Leslie), Thomas Carlyle (Donald Gordon), and Walter Pater (Mr. Rose). The latter is of particular interest, as his characterisation in this novel helped ruin his reputation as well as his career at Oxford University. The book became a best seller in its time and retains much of its humour and satirical bite today. As author David Daiches wrote in 1951, "If we can read through The New Republic without at one point or another being made to feel a little foolish, we are wise indeed. (Summary by Foon)

Tree of Heaven, The by SINCLAIR, May

One of the most heart-breaking of all World War I novels, this family epic was written in the midst of the War itself, and shows the intense emotion generated in ordinary lives by that tragedy. May Sinclair astonishingly weaves multiple themes into her narrative, seamlessly drawing from the great movements of her day: suffrage, sexual liberation, artistic revolt, war, and pacifism. Her most powerful metaphor throughout the novel is that of the Vortex: the dangerously irresistible force of human masses, how to resist it and (much more difficult) how to participate in it without losing one’s individual autonomy. - Summary by Expatriate

They "The Blessed Damozel," a poem of spirits in heaven, "La Belle Dame Sans Merci," whose heroine may be a fairy or witch, and whose ghosts are presented in dream only, do not belong in this classification; nor do such poems as Mathilde Blind's lovely sonnet, "The Dead Are Ever with Us," class as ghost-poems; for in these the dead are living in ourselves in a half-metaphorical sense. If a poem would be a ghost-story, in short, I have considered it a ghost-poem, not otherwise. (Excerpt by Margaret Widdemer)

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course, structure, characters, and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.
