U.S. Money vs. Corporation Currency, "Aldrich plan." by CROZIER, Alfred Owen

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen

In 1908, the National Monetary Commission was established by Congress to study financial boom-and-bust cycles. Senator Nelson Aldrich (Republican-RI) was chair of the commission. He, in secret enclave with a group of bankers, drafted what was called The Aldrich Plan, which provided for a central "bank" that would hold funds individual banks could borrow in the case of a bank run, print currency, and act as the fiscal agent of the US government. However, the plan gave little power to the government and seemed to give almost absolute control of the country's currency to Wall Street financiers. This 1912 book outlines the dangers and supposed duplicity of The Aldrich Plan while it was being debated in Congress. (The plan was eventually defeated, but was used as a basis for the Federal Reserve Act, which was signed into law in 1913.) - Summary by TriciaG

Lourdes by ZOLA, Émile

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen

This book describes a five day national pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Lourdes, where miracle cures are hoped for. The central character is a priest, Pierre, whose faith is faltering. He is accompanying his childhood sweetheart who has been stricken with paralysis and whose faith is strong. In the background of the great irony of this relationship, there are numerous sub-plots, some tragic, some whimsical, involving a large number of characters, set in the midst of organised chaos in the pilgrimage site. Through Pierre's mental and spiritual experiences Zola explores the role of religious faith in a society coming to terms with science and reason. - Summary by Peter Tucker

Ὁμήρου Ὀδύσσεια (Ραψῳδία 20) - The Odyssey By Homer (Book 20) by HOMER

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen


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 Υ' - Τὰ πρὸ τῆς μνηστηροφονίας.

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 20: Theoclymenus Foretells the Suitors' Doom.

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 20: Événements qui précèdent la mort des Prétendants.

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.

Monitor and the Merrimac: Both sides of the story, The by Various Authors

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen

The American Civil War lasted four years, from 1861 to 1865. It included some iconic battles that have maintained enough interest to merit recounting the events in countless books. One such seminal battle was that of the USS Monitor versus the USS Merrimack, two ironclad ships, repurposed and redesigned to have a defensive advantage against conventional wooden war ships of the 19th century. The Monitor and the Merrimack faced off in a duel in the harbor at Hampton Roads, Virginia. The event represented the beginning of a new era of naval warfare. “The Monitor and the Merrimac” is a unique historical account of the first-hand experiences and perspectives of soldiers on each of the two ships. - Summary by Jeffery Smith

"People will worry, they do worry. What they want to know and need to learn is how to quit worrying. This I have attempted herein to show, with the full knowledge, however, that no one person's recipe can infallibly be used by any other person—so that, in reality, all I have tried to do is to set forth the means I have followed to teach myself the delightful lesson of serenity, of freedom from worry, and thereby to suggest to receptive minds a way by which they may possibly attain the same desirable end." - Summary by George Wharton James

Life and Times of Kateri Tekakwitha, The Lily of the Mohawks, The by WALWORTH, Ellen

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha's lifespan of only about 24 years was spent in utter humility and penitence. In spite of her natural diffidence, she summoned the strength to assert her desire to become a Christian and to consecrate herself as a virgin, and even had the courage to take part in a dangerous escape from her tyrannical uncle. This biography of her life fills in many details of the history, geography, and important persons and events of Kateri's time and setting in New York and Canada from 1656 to 1680. Interestingly, these same years were a turning point for the Jesuit missionaries in New France, as their relations with the Indians underwent a change from suffering fearful persecution to achieving widespread conversion, thanks in at least a small part to the influence of the humble Kateri. The book's many first hand accounts by eye witnesses are a highlight. Readers may also appreciate the author's personal research and descriptions of the locations where all the events of Kateri's life took place. The author's greatest achievement in this book is that she helps the reader to understand and love Saint Kateri. ( Carol Pelster)

Audubon's Western Journal: 1849-1850 by AUDUBON, John Woodhouse

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen

John Woodhouse Audubon (1812-1862), son of the famous painter John James Audubon and an artist in his own right, joined Col. Henry Webb's California Company expedition in 1849. From New Orleans the expedition sailed to the Rio Grande; it headed west overland through northern Mexico and through Arizona to San Diego, California. Cholera and outlaws decimated the group. Many of them turned back, including the leader. Audubon assumed command of those remaining and they pushed on to California, although he was forced to abandon his paints and canvases in the desert…. Throughout the whole of this long journey Mr. Audubon took notes of scenes and occurrences by the way. In his descriptions he exhibits the keen observation of the naturalist and the trained eye of the artist. The result is a remarkable picture of social conditions in Mexico, of birds and trees, of sky and mountains and the changing face of nature, of the barrenness of the desert and the difficulties of the journey, of the ruined missions of California, of methods of mining, and of the chaos of races and babel of tongues in the gold fields. It was manifestly impossible to keep a daily journal, and the entries were made from time to time as opportunity occurred. Considering the circumstances under which they were taken, the notes are remarkable for their accuracy. Because it was not edited by Audubon, the text (and this recording) ends abruptly. - Summary by Book Introduction and David Wales

Howells published his famous "My Mark Twain" in the same year Clemens died, 1910. A few years earlier, Clemens wrote this "remembrance" and "appreciation" of the man who stuck with him through the ups and downs of his long literary journey. (John Greenman)

Heimskringla: The Stories of the Kings of Norway, Called The Round World by STURLESON, Snorri

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen

Heimskringla (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈheimsˌkʰriŋla]) is the best known of the Old Norse kings' sagas. It was written in Old Norse in Iceland by the poet and historian Snorri Sturluson (1178/79–1241) ca. 1230. The name Heimskringla was first used in the 17th century, derived from the first two words of one of the manuscripts (kringla heimsins - the circle of the world). Heimskringla is a collection of sagas about the Norwegian kings, beginning with the saga of the legendary Swedish dynasty of the Ynglings, followed by accounts of historical Norwegian rulers from Harald Fairhair of the 9th century up to the death of the pretender Eystein Meyla in 1177. The exact sources of his work are disputed, but included earlier kings' sagas, such as Morkinskinna, Fagrskinna and the twelfth century Norwegian synoptic histories and oral traditions, notably many skaldic poems. Snorri had himself visited Norway and Sweden. For events of the mid-12th century, Snorri explicitly names the now lost work Hryggjarstykki as his source. The composition of the sagas is Snorri's. This solo is Volume 3-5 of The Saga Library by the same translators and is all three volumes of the Heimskringla (which are volumes 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the Saga Library. Volume 6 is notes, index, appendices etc, and is not planned to be recorded). ( Wikipedia and Ærik Bjørnsson)

The Book of All Power by Edgar Wallace is set in London at the beginning, and then the action moves to Russia. The story covers the period from 1910 to 1919 during which the Russian Revolution takes place and this results in drastic changes to Russian society. This book could be described as a romantic adventure story and the main characters are a weird assortment - Malcolm Hay, a young Englishman, a beautiful Grand Duchess of the Russian Aristocracy, a Russian general, a Jewish bookbinder, and an American sharp shooter. Much happens, and the Russian characters, heavily influenced by their religion and politics, provide a fascinating insight into the mind of the Russian people, aristocrats and peasants, and all those in between. - Summary by Peter Thomlinson

Tales of a Traveller by IRVING, Washington

Zur Kategorie wechselnLiteratur-Blogs vom | Quelle: librivox.org Direktlink direkt öffnen

Writing under the pseudonym, Geoffrey Crayon, Washington Irving chronicled his travels through Europe in the early 1820’s. He wrote of people he met, places he saw and stories he was told. In fact, much of the work is recounting tales told to him by those with exotic adventures that were waiting to be shared. “Tales of a Traveler” is broken up into four separate parts or “Books,” as Irving called them. The final book is almost a post-script to “Knickerbocker’s History of New York” as he tells stories and describes Manhattan Island and nearby lands as they were almost two hundred years ago. This rough land, still mostly wilderness, had the fingerprints of the early Dutch colonists evident throughout. (Greg Giordano)
