Girl on the Leeside: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital...

A young, aspiring poet in a quiet Irish village thinks her life of books suits her perfectly until a charismatic newcomer from America broadens her horizons. Siobhan Doyle grew up with her Uncle Kee at their family pub The Leeside, in rural Ireland. Kee has been staunchly overprotective of Siobhan ever since her mother's death in an IRA bombing, but now that she's an adult, it's clear that in protecting her Kee has unwittingly kept her in a state of arrested development. The pair are content to remain forever in their quiet haven, reading and discussing Irish poetry, but for both Siobhan and Kee fate intervenes. A visiting American literary scholar awakens Siobhan to the possibility of a fulfilling life away from The Leeside. And her relationship with Kee falters after the revelation that her father is still alive. In the face of these changes, Siobhan reaches a surprising decision about her future. Lyrical and heartfelt, Kathleen Anne Kenney's Girl on the Leeside deserves a place alongside contemporary literature's best-loved coming-of-age novels. 1. Language: English.

The Divine Comedy , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1023min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Dante's Divine Comedy is considered to be not only the most important epic poem in Italian literature, but also one of the greatest poems ever written. It consists of 100 cantos, and (after an introductory canto) they are divided into three sections. Each section is 33 cantos in length, and they describe how Dante and a guide travel through Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. Expertly translated here by the famous poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Dante's masterpiece leaps vividly to life in this production. Philosophically, the poem is based on the theological works of St. Thomas Aquinas. The Divine Comedy is essentially an allegory of the progress of the human soul toward God and the progress of mankind toward peace on earth. Many of the characters involved are drawn from ancient Roman history and from Dante's contemporaries, making the work a realistic picture of Italian life in the early 14th century. As well, it is an intensely developed analysis of human affairs. In structure the poem appears to be a description of the afterlife. But it is in essence, a compassionate, oral evaluation of humanity and a mystical vision of the Absolute toward which mankind struggles. The Divine Comedy endures today because of the universality of its drama and the lyric quality of the poetry, and not as the result of any doctrinal content. 1. Language: English.

One power. One prophecy. One chance to change the world.  Eighteen-year-old Chloe Zacharias is perfectly content being an outsider. But an ancient prophecy has different plans, plans to catapult her into the middle of an ages-old war between beings she thought were only mythical.  Petros is a well-oiled machine of an empire. Everyone’s life is mapped out perfectly, from the day of their birth until their much anticipated Coronation at age 75 when they’ll become ruler of their own personal paradise. But when it becomes clear to the powers that be that Chloe could uncover their secrets and dismantle their world, the rulers of the Underworld send cunning Hermes on a mission to destroy her before she can realize who - and what - she is.  Recruited to assist in the mission is Orpheus, famed poet and romantic musician who will do anything to reunite with his beloved Eurydice. If he can charm Chloe into believing false information about her true identity, the rulers of Hades and Petros will be placated, he will join his bride in Elysium, and every Petrodian citizen will continue believing the horrific lies that have corrupted their world.  Filled with magic, mystery, and sprinklings of Greek mythology, Age of the Ashers is a young adult fantasy adventure for those who love to get lost in the world of make-believe. 1.

In a town where a lot of poor people suffer, a swallow who was left behind after his flock flew off to Egypt for the winter meets the statue of the late "Happy Prince", who in reality has never experienced true happiness. Viewing various scenes of people suffering in poverty from his tall monument, the Happy Prince asks the swallow to take the ruby from his hilt, the sapphires from his eyes, and the golden leaf covering his body to give to the poor. As the winter comes and the Happy Prince is stripped of all of his beauty, his lead heart breaks when the swallow dies as a result of his selfless deeds. The statue is then torn down and melted leaving behind the broken heart and the dead swallow which are taken up to heaven by an angel that has deemed them the two most precious things in the God’s city, so they may live forever in his city of gold and garden of paradise.

A Summer Life , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 231min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Gary Soto writes that when he was five "what I knew best was at ground level." In this lively collection of short essays, Soto takes his listener to a ground-level perspective, recreating in vivid detail the sights, sounds, smells, and textures he knew growing up in his Fresno, California, neighborhood. The "things" of his boyhood tie it all together: his Buddha "splotched with gold", the taps of his shoes, and the "engines of sparks that lived beneath my soles", his worn tennies smelling of "summer grass, asphalt, the moist sock breathing the defeat of baseball". The child’s world is made up of small things - small, very important things. A respected poet and an innovator of the short essay form, Soto offers nearly snapshot-like glances of moments unique in form yet universal in content. Growing up Chicano and male, Soto gives us a rag-tag race through his neighborhood, speaking equally as well to the childhood experiences of us all. Anyone who remembers the '50s or who knows anything about growing up in the '50s, will relish Soto’s rich poetic descriptions. Teachers and students of writing will relish Soto’s rich poetic descriptions. Teachers and students of writing will also find inspiration in these tightly knit and highly imaginative stories. Soto offers much more than humorous and poignant recollections; he wraps each memory in a poetry that lingers pleasantly in the reader’s mind. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Duque-Estrada.

 A translation into English prose by A. S. Kline. Narrated by Jack Wynters. The Divine Comedy is Dante's record of his visionary journey through the triple realms of Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise. This, the first epic of which its author is the protagonist and his individual imaginings the content, weaves together the three threads of classical and Christian history, contemporary Medieval politics and religion, and Dante's own inner life including his love for Beatrice, to create the most complex and highly structured long poem extant.Through the depths of Hell in the Inferno, and upward along the mountain of Purgatory in the Purgatorio, Dante is guided by Virgil, the great poet of the classical Roman Empire, exploring, as he does so, the political, ethical, and religious issues of his time. Dante, in his own life and in this epic, represents a party of one desirous of purifying the Church on the one hand and the Holy Roman Empire on the other, yet caught between those two great worldly powers and turning to literature to make his voice heard.From the summit of Purgatory, Dante ascends in the Paradiso, guided by Beatrice, into the celestial Paradise, where love, truth, and beauty intertwine in his great vision of the Christian revelation. Yet the Commedia is essential listening not merely for Christians, poets, and historians but for anyone struggling with issues of morality, the ethical framework of society, and the challenge of living the true life. 1.
