Die Pest zu London Audiobook

Die Pest zu London

Author: Daniel Dafoe Narrator: Norbert Wendel Release Date: July 2021

Daniel Dafoe zählte zu den produktivsten und erfolgreichsten Autoren des 18. Jahrhunderts. Mit der Erzählung über den schiffbrüchigen „Robinson Crusoe“ bereicherte Dafoe die Literaturgeschichte. Von vielen wird aber sein Pest-Tagebuch, dass die Ereignisse in und um London, während der großen, verheerenden Pestwelle von 1665/66 schildert, für Defoes beste Arbeit gehalten. Um ungefähr ein Fünftel wurde die Bevölkerung der britischen Hauptstadt während dieser Zeit dezimiert. Die Detailfülle dieses Buch verführte selbst wohlunterrichtete Wissenschaftler dazu, in ihm eine historische Quelle für die damaligen Zustände zu sehen. Dafoe besaß im allerhöchsten Maße die Gabe, die man »Wirklichkeitsphantasie« nennen könnte, d. h. die Fähigkeit, sich in eine erdichtete und bloß vorgestellte Umwelt ganz und gar hineinzuversetzen und so völlig in ihr aufzugehen, als ob er tatsächlich darin zu leben und sich ihr anzupassen hätte.

¿Nos acostamos? Audiobook

¿Nos acostamos?

Author: Andrea Hoyos Narrator: Caro Copiello Release Date: July 2021

'Esta novela erótica se adentra en la vida y en el sexo sin excusas ni vergüenza. Realista y honesta, la autora juega con el lector y con la verdad. ¿Autobiografía o fantasía? Da igual: es literatura erótica de la buena, de la que se puede leer y disfrutar. Andrea es escritora, aunque no vive de los libros. Quizá por eso sucumbe a la propuesta de Borja y se encierra a escribir para él (y a veces con él) un relato erótico que le permita dejar de trabajar (o, al menos, olvidarse del ERE que sobrevuela su cabeza). Pero el placer y el dinero son cosas diferentes, tan distintas como el sexo y el amor: Andrea y Borja nunca se quieren a la vez y Borja, además, quiere mejor por WhatsApp. Por eso Andrea se refugia en su amigo Pablo, un hombre que, como ella, cree en la piel y en la verdad. Y que, como ella también, cuando hace falta cree en la mentira...'

The Letters of Shirley Jackson Audiobook

The Letters of Shirley Jackson

Author: Shirley Jackson Narrator: Gary Bennett, Kirsten Potter, Linda Jones Release Date: July 2021

A bewitchingly brilliant collection of never-before-published letters from the renowned author of "The Lottery" and The Haunting of Hill House i must stop writing letters and get to writing a novel. Shirley Jackson is one of the most important American authors of the last hundred years and among our greatest chroniclers of the female experience. This extraordinary compilation of personal correspondence has all the hallmarks of Jackson's beloved fiction: flashes of the uncanny in the domestic, sparks of horror in the quotidian, and the veins of humor that run through good times and bad. i am having a fine time doing a novel with my left hand and a long story-with as many levels as grand central station-with my right hand, stirring chocolate pudding with a spoon held in my teeth, and tuning the television with both feet. Written over the course of nearly three decades, from Jackson's college years to six days before her early death at the age of forty-eight, these letters become the autobiography Shirley Jackson never wrote. As well as being a bestselling author, Jackson spent much of her adult life as a mother of four in Vermont, and the landscape here is often the everyday: raucous holidays and trips to the dentist, overdue taxes and frayed lines of Christmas lights, new dogs and new babies. But in recounting these events to family, friends, and colleagues, she turns them into remarkable stories: entertaining, revealing, and wise. At the same time, many of these letters provide fresh insight into the genesis and progress of Jackson's writing over nearly three decades. The novel is getting sadder. It's always such a strange feeling-I know something's going to happen, and those poor people in the book don't; they just go blithely on their ways. Compiled and edited by her elder son, Laurence Jackson Hyman, in consultation with Jackson scholar Bernice M. Murphy, this intimate collection holds the beguiling prism of Shirley Jackson-writer and reader, mother and daughter, neighbor and wife-up to the light.

The Life of the Author: Shakespeare Audiobook

The Life of the Author: Shakespeare

Author: Anna Beer Narrator: Susan Ericksen Release Date: July 2021

The Life of the Author: William Shakespeare delivers a fresh and exciting new take on the life of William Shakespeare, offering listeners a biography that brings to the foreground his working life as a poet, playwright, and actor. It also explores the nature of his relationships with his friends, colleagues, and family, and asks important questions about the stories we tell about Shakespeare based on the evidence we actually have about the man himself. The book is written using scholarly citations and references, but with an approachable style suitable for listeners with little or no background knowledge of Shakespeare or the era in which he lived. The Life of the Author: William Shakespeare asks provocative questions about the playwright-poet's preoccupation with gender roles and sexuality, and explores why it is so challenging to ascertain his political and religious allegiances. Conservative or radical? Misogynist or proto-feminist? A lover of men or women or both? Patriot or xenophobe? This introduction to Shakespeare's life and works offers no simple answers, but recognizes a man intensely responsive to the world around him, a playwright willing and able to collaborate with others and able to collaborate with others, and, of course, his exceptional, perhaps unique, contribution to literature in English.

El silbido del arquero Audiobook

El silbido del arquero

Author: Irene Vallejo Narrator: Aida De La Cruz Release Date: July 2021

Novela de aventuras, novela de guerra, de exilio y de amor, 'El silbido del arquero' es un viaje a los mitos de un pasado que aún ilumina nuestro presente. Cuando Eneas, huido del saqueo de Troya con su hijo y algunos hombres, naufraga en la costa africana, ante las playas de la ciudad de Cartago, su suerte queda en manos de la reina Elisa. A este héroe, vagabundo y derrotado, una misteriosa profecía le señala como fundador de la venidera civilización romana. Siglos después, en un tiempo circular y envolvente, el poeta Virgilio tendrá que recrear, por encargo del emperador Augusto, esa aventura inicial y las glorias pasadas del Imperio ya victorioso, que oculta abismos de miseria y codicia tras sus fastuosos mármoles. En un singular juego entre la Historia y la leyenda, 'El silbido del arquero' atrapa el reflejo de nuestros conflictos contemporáneos y la semilla de temas que nunca dejarán de fascinarnos: la sombra del poder sobre la libertad individual; el dilema de un hombre que, al derrumbarse su mundo, se debate entre reconstruir las ruinas o arriesgarse a levantar algo nuevo; las dificultades de una mujer poderosa en un universo de hombres y sus deseos de ser madre cuando su tiempo se acaba; la mirada de una adolescente sobre la convulsa vida adulta; la violencia, la piedad, el hado o la suerte... Tejida con las voces de unos personajes legendarios y, a la vez, intensamente vivos, la novela es un homenaje al arte de contar historias y al valor eterno del mito. Irene Vallejo, filóloga y escritora española, ha recibido en 2020 el Premio Nacional de Ensayo.

Praying with Jane Eyre: Reflections on Reading as a Sacred Practice Audiobook

Praying with Jane Eyre: Reflections on Reading as a Sacred Practice

Author: Vanessa Zoltan Narrator: Cassandra Campbell, Vanessa Zoltan Release Date: July 2021

"In these soaring, open-hearted essays, Vanessa Zoltan writes with fierce brilliance about suffering, survival, and the kind of meaning in life that can withstand real scrutiny."-John Green, bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars and The Anthropocene Reviewed A deeply felt celebration of a classic novel--and a reflection on the ways our favorite books can shape and heal us. Our favorite books keep us company, give us hope, and help us find meaning in a chaotic world. In this fresh and relatable work, atheist chaplain Vanessa Zoltan blends memoir and personal growth as she grapples with the notions of family legacy and identity through the lens of her favorite novel, Jane Eyre. Informed by the reading practices of medieval monks and rabbinic scholars from her training at the Harvard Divinity School and filtered through the pages of Jane Eyre as well as Little Women, Harry Potter, and The Great Gatsby, Zoltan explores topics ranging from the trauma she has inherited as the granddaughter of four Holocaust survivors to finding hope, meaning, and even magic in our deeply fractured times. Brimming with a lifelong love of classic literature and the tenderness of self-reflection, the book also reveals simple techniques for reading any work as a sacred text--from Virginia Woolf to Anne of Green Gables to baseball scorecards. Whether you're an avowed 'Eyrehead' or simply a curious reader looking for a richer connection with the written word, this deeply felt and inspiring book will light the way to a more intimate appreciation for whatever books you love to read.
