The Picture of Dorian Gray
9,20 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

"The Picture of Dorian Gray", Oscar Wilde's only novel, was first published on both sides of the Atlantic by the American periodical Lippincott's Monthly Review on 20th June 1890. Not only did this text provoke a heated debate in the British press in the same year, it also became notorious for its being quoted and examined in court in Wilde's three trials in the spring of 1895. As a story, the novel shows how a young man in a Faustian situation wishes for his portrait to age rather than himself. Steeped in sin, which, however, is alluded to rather than spelt out, Dorian Gray for Wilde s critics and enemies became an image of the author's own behaviour. Going back to the typescript of the novel, the editor has restored passages to the text that had been excised or censored by Wilde himself and the editorial committee in America. Danny Morrison has provided a preface placing Wilde in the Irish political context of his own day and beyond.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Charles Sobhraj: Inside the Heart of the Bikini Killer provides glimpses of Charles Sobhraj - the notorious serial killer - without the glitz and trappings lent to his image by media reports. It is not the cold, calculated 'Bikini Killer' we find here, but a balding man worried about his failing health; a man who requests the doctor to put off his surgery for a few days because he is afraid; a frail man who bursts into tears when he learns the operation has only a slim chance of success. Candidly narrated by the doctor who had initially refused to treat a criminal like Charles, this book explores the ethical dilemmas and the choices we have to make to remain true to ourselves. 1.

June Jenson is back, and she’s in more trouble than ever.  Still adjusting to her family's recent exoneration from the archaeological world (they stole an artifact, caused a ruckus...it's a long story), June decides to embark on a press tour to repair the image of her employer (Oxford University) and her (somewhat crazy, but altogether lovable) grandfather. When the opportunity arises to go to America to find a lost treasure belonging to the notorious outlaw Butch Cassidy, June know's it isn't something she can shy away from - even if she wasn't exactly the one who was assigned by Oxford to the task. Along with the Professor Dr. Cooke and her emotionally stilted boyfriend, Griffin, June embarks on a treasure hunt in the wild mountains of Colorado. June hopes to make the discovery of a lifetime...that is, before anyone at Oxford realizes she's left the country. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Helen Taylor.

He prides himself on building careers from the ground up - signing the artist, shaping an image both musically and visually, overseeing everything from songwriting to wardrobe to cover art to videos to promotional gimmicks. "I used to think Puffy was difficult," says Faith Evans, "but he knows what he's talking about. He doesn't like to be second-guessed. We call him the Lord - that's the joke. 'The Lord said...' And if it's not like the Lord said, then it has to be changed." In this lucid, illuminating profile, journalist David Handelman presents Sean Combs as he strives to make a positive impact on black lives despite the ever-present shadow of the East Coast/West Coast hip-hop feud, showing us why, in addition to being a CEO, visionary, father, and role model, Puff Daddy reigns as The Notorious VIP. 1.

French Legends: The Life and Legacy of Jean-Pau...

People, give thanks to the gods! Your most redoubtable enemy has fallen beneath the scythe of Fate. (Jean-Paul Marat) A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors' French series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of France's most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. King Louis XVI gave the French Revolution a scapegoat. Robespierre gave the French Revolution a leader. And Jean-Paul Marat (1743-1793) gave the French Revolution a voice. One of the most memorable and notorious revolutionaries, Marat became one of the Revolution's best-known figures through his speeches, writings, and scathing attacks on everyone he perceived as, "[E]nemies of the revolution". It's possible that the Jacobins might not have come to power in 1793 without Marat's fiery work championing the lower classes and branding his political foes with the harshest demagoguery. No revolutionary was more passionate, determined, and willing to die for the cause. Marat's work during the French Revolution and his notorious death at the height of it remain the best known details of his life. Indeed, the image of the Death of Marat by Jacques-Louis David is one of the most commonly associated with the Revolution. But those facts have obscured what the man himself was really like. A trained scientist, who served as a doctor before the Revolution, Marat counted among his acquaintances luminaries like Goethe and Benjamin Franklin. At the same time, Marat was an Enlightened political philosopher. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Gilboe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/037311/bk_acx0_037311_sample.mp3.
