A look at the metaphysical experiences that shaped the lives and work of 24 great men and women from the Renaissance to modern times • Chronicles the changing relationship with God, nature, and spirituality from the 16th century to the 20th century • Includes encounters with the paranormal of Ben Johnson, Isaac Newton, Mary Shelley, Leo Tolstoy, Doris Lessing, and Winston Churchill What role did the esoteric thought of Swedenborg play in the creative output of Honoré de Balzac? Did a supernatural encounter prompt Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley to focus her work on the theme of immortality? Building on his earlier research on communications with the spirit world that Victor Hugo, author of Les Misérables, experienced while in exile on the isle of Jersey, John Chambers now looks at the role occult knowledge and supernatural experiences played in the lives of 24 geniuses. His investigation spans the life and work of William Blake, Helena Blavatsky, and W. B. Yeats, whose esoteric interests are well known, as well as those little suspected of such encounters with worlds beyond ours, including Doris Lessing, Leo Tolstoy, Norman Mailer, Yukio Mishima, and Winston Churchill. Chambers presents more than a collection of anecdotes and newly revealed secrets. His research provides insightful historical context of the decisive turning point that took place with the collapse of Prague, the occult capital of Europe, in 1620, which resulted in the victory of Cartesian reality and Newton’s scientific paradigm over the esoteric traditions that flourished until that time. The magical and occult world shown in the lives of these 24 great men and women offers us a glimpse of what could still be ours--a world that though it is now overshadowed by modern scientific and technological principles is yet still visible on the horizon through the visions and paranormal experiences of these geniuses.

Alice Munro has devoted her entire career to the short story form in her fourteen collections, having won the Nobel Prize in Literature “as master of the contemporary short story”. This edited volume investigates her art as a storyteller, the processes she performs on the contemporary short story genre in her creative anatomical theatre. Divided into five topical sections, it is a collection of scholarly chapters which offer textual insights into a single story, compare two or more texts, or casts a more panoramic view on Munro’s literary production, embracing stories from her first collection Dance of the Happy Shades to her last published Dear Life. Through different critical approaches that range from post-structuralism to cultural studies, from linguistics and rhetorical analyses to translation studies, the authors insist on the concept that no fixed patterns prevail in her short stories, as Munro has constantly developed, challenged, and revised existing modes of generic configuration, while discussing the fluidity, the elusiveness, the indeterminacy, the ambiguity of her superb writing.

There is little question about the incredible power of Bruce Springsteen's work as a particularly transformative art, as a lyrical and musical fusion that never shies away from sifting through the rubble of human conflict. As Rolling Stone magazine's Parke Puterbaugh observes, Springsteen 'is a peerless songwriter and consummate artist whose every painstakingly crafted album serves as an impassioned and literate pulse taking of a generation's fortunes. He is the foremost live performer in the history of rock and roll, a self-described prisoner of the music he loves, for whom every show is played as if it might be his last.' In recent decades, Puterbaugh adds, 'Springsteen's music developed a conscience that didn't ignore the darkening of the runaway American Dream as the country greedily blundered its way through the 1980s' and into the sociocultural detritus of a new century paralysed by isolation and uncertainty. Bruce Springsteen, Cultural Studies, and the Runaway American Dream reflects the significant critical interest in understanding Springsteen's resounding impact upon the ways in which we think and feel about politics, religion, gender, and the pursuit of the American Dream. By assembling a host of essays that engage in interdisciplinary commentary regarding one of Western culture's most enduring artistic and socially radicalizing phenomena, this book offers a cohesive, intellectual, and often entertaining introduction to the many ways in which Springsteen continues to impact our lives by challenging our minds through his lyrics and music.

Der ganze Kosmos Gabriel García Márquez‘ im Spiegel seiner erfrischend unakademischen Reden Er hatte sich geschworen, nie eine Rede zu halten, aber dann steht er doch sein Leben lang auf den Podien der Welt. Gabriel García Márquez, einer der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller des 20. Jahrhunderts und Literaturnobelpreisträger, weiß, was für eine Macht das Wort, sein Wort, haben kann. Die von ihm selbst eigens für dieses Buch zusammengestellten Reden sind wunderschöne, bewegende Beispiele dafür und unvergleichlich.Literatur, Journalismus, Film und Politik, nicht zu vergessen die Freundschaften, sind die großen Themen im öffentlichen Leben von Gabriel García Márquez. Und darum geht es in diesen Reden – von der ersten, die er 1944 bei seinem Schulabschluss hielt, über die Nobelpreisrede 1982 bis zu jener anrührenden Ansprache 2007 in Cartagena de Indias bei der Vierzigjahr-Feier von »Hundert Jahre Einsamkeit«. Die Texte, die ein Leben umspannen, zeigen Gabriel García Márquez in vielen Facetten: den politisch engagierten Bürger seines Landes, den Literaturliebhaber, den erfolgreichen Autor und Nobelpreisträger, den Filmfan, der eine Akademie gründet, den couragierten Journalisten. Sie sind lebendig, anekdotenreich und packend. Man wünscht sich beim Lesen, die Stimme von Gabriel García Márquez zu hören.

Yukio Mishima’s The Decay of the Angel is the final novel in his masterful tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. It is the last installment of Shigekuni Honda’s pursuit of the successive reincarnations of his childhood friend Kiyoaki Matsugae. It is the late 1960s and Honda, now an aged and wealthy man, once more encounters a person he believes to be a reincarnation of his friend, Kiyoaki — this time restored to life as a teenage orphan, Tōru. Adopting the boy as his heir, Honda quickly finds that Tōru is a force to be reckoned with. The final novel of this celebrated tetralogy weaves together the dominant themes of the previous three novels in the series: the decay of Japan’s courtly tradition; the essence and value of Buddhist philosophy and aesthetics; and, underlying all, Mishima’s apocalyptic vision of the modern era. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Im Sommer 1913 verbringt der junge aristokratische Dichter Cecil Valance ein Wochenende bei der Familie seines Cambridge-Kommilitonen George Sawle. Besonders Georges kleine Schwester Daphne ist sofort von dem gut aussehenden Gentleman eingenommen, und Cecil widmet ihr ein Gedicht. Es wird zum lyrischen Symbol einer ganzen Generation. Nach Cecils Tod im Ersten Weltkrieg ranken sich immer neue Mythen und Geheimnisse um die Person und das Werk des Dichters. Cecils Leser und sogar seine Familie stehen vor einem Rätsel. In den folgenden Jahrzehnten werden nicht nur Daphne und George, sondern vor allem Cecils literarischer Nachlass von Öffentlichkeit, Biografen und Wissenschaft instrumentalisiert – entsprechend der jeweiligen literarischen und kulturellen Mode der Zeit. Doch dann macht sich ein junger Literaturfreund daran, Cecils Geheimnis zu lüften, und ein Antiquar macht eine überraschende Entdeckung ... Ein sinfonischer Roman um eine schillernde und geheimnisvolle Figur – brillant erzählt in sinnenfreudigen Bildern und kommentiert mit ironischem Witz.
