Download and read online Cranford in PDF and EPUB ELIZABETH CLEGHORN GASKELL (1810 bis 1865) wurde als Tochter eines ehemaligen unitarischen Geistlichen in Chelsea, einem Vorort von London, geboren. Infolge des frühen Todes der Mutter wurde das Kind in die Obhut von Verwandten gegeben und in Knutsford, Cheshire, in der Nähe von Manchester, von ältlichen Tanten aufgezogen. In der ländlichen Stille und Abgeschiedenheit von Knutsford und Sandlebridge, in die, so scheint es, noch kein Hauch der aufgeregten Zeit gedrungen war, lernte sie den Hintergrund, die Atmosphäre und die Charaktere für ihre ländlichen Idyllen, insbesondere für "Cranford" kennen. Hier wurde der Grundstein für ihre Liebe zur englischen Kleinstadt, zur unberührten Natur und zu den einfachen Menschen gelegt. "Cranford", im Jahre 1853 in Buchform veröffentlicht, ist kein Roman im eigentlichen Sinne des Wortes. Es gibt weder Helden noch eine Fabel. Wir haben es vielmehr mit einer Folge von teilweise abgeschlossenen Episoden zu tun. Eine Mischung von Humor, Sentimentalität und Tragik durchzieht das Buch. Diese Miniaturmalerei einer zurückgebliebenen Kleinstadt und ihrer schrulligen Bewohner erinnert an ein Spitzweg-Gemälde, an ein Idyll, das nicht frei ist von Pathos.

Download and read online The Novel of the Century in PDF and EPUB 'Never mind those self-help manuals urging that some classic novel may change your life; in this sparkling study of the birth, growth and afterlife of Hugo's evergreen blockbuster, David Bellos argues that Les Misérables already has' Boyd Tonkin, Economist 'Any reader who hasn't yet embarked on Hugo's book might be converted to the idea by this one' Daniel Hahn, Spectator The extraordinary story of how a simple tale of love and revolution, the poor and the downtrodden - Victor Hugo's beloved classic Les Misérables - conquered the world. There has never been a book like it. It is the most widely read and frequently adapted story of all time, on stage and on film. But why is Les Misérables the novel of the century? David Bellos's remarkable new book brings to life the extraordinary story of how Hugo managed to write his epic novel despite a revolution, a coup d'état and political exile; how he pulled off the deal of the century to get it published, and set it on course to become the novel that epitomizes the grand sweep of history in the nineteenth century. Packed full of information about the background and design of Les Misérables, this biography of a masterpiece nonetheless insists that the moral and social message of Hugo's ever-popular novel is just as important for our century as it was for its own. The Novel of the Century is a book as rich, remarkable and long-lasting as the novel at its heart. Les Misérables is available as a Penguin Classic, in an acclaimed new translation by Christine Donougher, with an introduction by Robert Tombs.

Download and read online Les mis rables in PDF and EPUB (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) It has been said that Victor Hugo has a street named after him in virtually every town in France. A major reason for the singular celebrity of this most popular and versatile of the great French writers is "Les Miserables "(1862). In this story of the trials of the peasant Jean Valjean--a man unjustly imprisoned, baffled by destiny, and hounded by his nemesis, the magnificently realized, ambiguously malevolent police detective Javert--Hugo achieves the sort of rare imaginative resonance that allows a work of art to transcend its genre. "Les Miserables "is at once a tense thriller that contains one of the most compelling chase scenes in all literature, an epic portrayal of the nineteenth-century French citizenry, and a vital drama--highly particularized and poetic in its rendition but universal in its implications--of the redemption of one human being.

Download and read online On Freud s Formulations on the Two Principles of Mental Functioning in PDF and EPUB This book is a collection of papers by leading contemporary psychoanalysts who comment on the continuing important relevance of Freud's (1911) paper, Formulations on the Two Principles of Mental Functioning. The contributors gathered here represent current European, Latin American, and North American perspectives that elaborate the continuing value of Two Principles for present-day psychoanalytic thinking. Each author examines Freud's paper through a personal lens that is coloured by the psychoanalytic culture from which he or she comes. In each instance, the writers' chapters demonstrate the heuristic value of Two Principles for twenty-first century psychoanalytic theory and technique. A common thread that runs through all the chapters is the view that this brief paper by Freud, which he humbly introduced by stating, "The deficiencies of this short paper, which is preparatory rather than expository ...", is a masterpiece that contains within it the seeds of much of his later writing. The distinction he draws between the pleasure principle and the reality principle are profound and raise questions that still preoccupy analysis today. A central concern of many of this book's papers has to do with those factors that account for the emergence of the reality principle in early mental life. Freud only pays lip service to the role of the infant's object relations, especially to its mother, in the evolution of the capacity to know and tolerate reality, which represents a vital adaptation yet paradoxically also exposes the individual to the painful emotional realities that are part of the human condition.
