Sind Sie ein typischer Mann? Was ist ein typischer Mann? Diese Frage stellt Pulitzer-Preisträgerin Carol Shields in diesem ironischen Roman, in dem - nicht ganz zufällig - die Frauen die Hosen anhaben. Am letzten Tag seiner Flitterwochen geht Larry Weller, ein junger Mann, für kurze Zeit zwischen den dunklen Hecken des Labyrinths von Hampton Court verloren: Ein Erlebnis, das sein Leben einschneidend verändert. Denn von nun an träumt Larry davon, ein phantastischer Landschaftsgärtner zu werden, Spezialität Irrgärten. Ein Traum, der ihn zwanzig Jahre lang gefangen halten wird - aber Larry hatte sowieso schon immer das Gefühl, dass das eigentliche Leben anderswo abläuft. Sympathisch, aber etwas unbeholfen, stolpert er von der Ehe mit der kessen Dorrie in die zweite mit der schönen Feministin Beth. Als er am Ende bei Charlotte landet, ist er fast fünfzig und hat sich selbst durch sein eigenes Labyrinth gekämpft ... »Ein großer Gesellschafts- und Entwicklungsroman« Hans Josef Ortheil in der FAZ

This first full-length study in English on seventeenth-century Italian travel writing enriches our understanding of an unusually fertile period for Italian contributions to the genre. The intrinsic qualities of this literature can now be grasped in terms of the larger question of cultural identity in Italy. For Hester, the specifically literary characteristics of Italian travel writing--including its humanism or Petrarchism--highlight the classic eminence throughout Europe of a prestigious tradition inherent to Italy, one compensating then for the peninsula's lack of a national political identity.

Agents and Lives offers a new and important rethinking of the traditional "humanist" view of literature. That tradition's valuation of literature for its "moral import" is extended in a wider, more complex, open and exploratory understanding of those terms. Goldberg's argument ranges across literature since the Renaissance, focusing on examples from George Eliot's novels and Pope's poetry. An appendix assesses the relationship of his argument to recent accounts of literature offered by moral philosophers such as Iris Murdoch, Bernard Williams, Martha Nussbaum and Richard Rorty.

Offering a rich and insightful road map of Asian American history as it has evolved over more than 200 years, this book marks the first systematic attempt to take stock of this field of study. It examines, comments, and questions the changing assumptions and contexts underlying the experiences and contributions of an incredibly diverse population of Americans. Arriving and settling in this nation as early as the 1790s, with American-born generations stretching back more than a century, Asian Americans have become an integral part of the American experience; this cleverly organized book marks the trajectory of that journey, offering researchers invaluable information and interpretation. Part 1 offers a synoptic narrative history, a chronology, and a set of periodizations that reflect different ways of constructing the Asian American past. Part 2 presents lucid discussions of historical debates—such as interpreting the anti-Chinese movement of the late 1800s and the underlying causes of Japanese American internment during World War II—and such emerging themes as transnationalism and women and gender issues. Part 3 contains a historiographical essay and a wide-ranging compilation of book, film, and electronic resources for further study of core themes and groups, including Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Hmong, Indian, Korean, Vietnamese, and others.

A history of the twentieth century which covers all the ideas, people, great events, literary and artistic movements, scientific discoveries which have shaped the twentieth century. Terrible Beauty presents a unique narrative of the twentieth century. Unlike more conventional histories, where the focus is on political events and personalities, on wars, treaties and elections, this book concentrates on the ideas that made the century so rich, rewarding and provocative. Beginning with four seminal ideas which were introduced in 1900 - the unconscious, the gene, the quantum and Picasso's first paintings in Paris - the book brings together the main areas of thought and juxtaposes the most original and influential ideas of our time in an immensely readable narrative. From the creation of plastic to Norman Mailer, from the discovery of the 'Big Bang' to the Counterculture, from Relativity to Susan Sontag, from Proust to Salman Rushdie, and Henri Bergson to Saul Bellow, the book's range is encyclopedic. We meet in these pages the other twentieth century, the writers, the artists, the scientists and philosophers who were not cowed by the political and military disasters raging around them, and produced some of the most amazing and rewarding ideas by which we live. Terrible Beauty, endlessly stimulating and provocative, affirms that there was much more to the twentieth century than war and genocide.

Persian literature is the jewel in the crown of Persian culture. It has profoundly influenced the literatures of Ottoman Turkey, Muslim India and Turkic Central Asia. It has been a source of inspiration for Goethe, Emerson, Matthew Arnold and Jorge Luis Borges among others, and praised by William Jones, Tagore, E.M. Forster and many more. Yet Persian literature has never received the attention it merits. Whereas Persian art and architecture, and more recently Iranian cinema, have been written about extensively and at different levels for a varied audience, Persian literature - the greatest achievement of the Iranian people, and one of the major literatures of the world - has largely remained the exclusive domain of specialists. And although in the past few years the poems of Rumi have attracted the kind of popular attention enjoyed by Omar Khayyam’s quatrains in the 19th century, Persian literature has never received the attention it truly deserves. A History of Persian Literature responds to this need and offers a new, comprehensive and detailed history of its subject. This 18-volume, authoritative survey reflects the stature and significance of Persian literature as the single most important accomplishment of the Iranian nation. Prominent scholars in the field bring a fresh critical approach to bear on this important topic and each volume includes representative samples of this literature. In this volume the Editors offer an indispensable overview of the long and rich tradition of historical writing as a literary form in Persian. Highlighting the central themes and ideas which inform Persian historiography - such as the ethical and exemplary value of history, and its role in legitimising political power - this book traces the development of Persian historical writing from its origins in the 10th century and its evolution under the Mongols and Safavids, through the twilight of the traditional chronicle in the late 18th century. It goes on to trace the emergence of a national historiography during the 19th century and into the Pahlavi Era. This volume also offers an account of parallel developments in histories written in Persian in Ottoman Turkey, Central Asia and Afghanistan, reflecting the vitality of Persian culture throughout the region and the persistence of literary models and repeated themes over the centuries. The first work of its kind to consider the whole course of traditional and modern historical writing in Iran, Persian Historiography provides a much-needed introduction to the subject and serves as an essential guide to this important strand of Persian literary production.

In einer sehr nahen Zukunft — nächsten Dienstag, wer weiß? — steht ein reizüberflutetes, konsumversessenes, analphabetisches Amerika vor dem Zusammenbruch. Aber sage das niemand dem russischstämmigen Hausmeistersohn Lenny Abramov, stolzem Autor des vermutlich letzten Tagebuchs und weniger stolzem Besitzer einer kahlen Stelle auf dem Kopf. Obwohl er in einem Unternehmen arbeitet, das der reichen Klientel Unsterblichkeit verspricht, pirscht sich der Tod an diesen 39-jährigen Cholesterinhappen gemessenen Schritts heran. Warum auch nicht? Lenny ist aus einem anderen Jahrhundert — liebt Bücher, auch wenn viele seiner Freunde glauben, dass sie «stinken». Aber noch mehr als Bücher liebt er Eunice Park, eine unwahrscheinlich süße und unwahrscheinlich abgebrühte 24-jährige koreanischstämmige Frau, die im Hauptfach Images und im Nebenfach Selbstsicherheit studiert hat und ihm in Rom in die Arme läuft. Sofort zeigt sie ihm, wie man effektiver die Zähne putzt, geht mit ihm nicht entflammbare Baumwollkleidung kaufen. Amerika hingegen ist weniger flammenresistent als Lennys neue Ausstaffierung. Das Land steckt in einer Kreditkrise und ist bei den Chinesen hochverschuldet, Unruhen brechen im New Yorker Central Park aus, Panzer der Nationalgarde stehen an jeder Ecke. Unbeirrt will Lenny seine wankelmütige Geliebte davon überzeugen, dass es sich in einer Zeit ohne Normen und Stabilität, in einer Welt, in der man «Attraktivität» und «Nachhaltigkeit» seines Gegenübers per Mausklick abfragen kann, in einer Gesellschaft, in der die Betuchten womöglich ewig leben, die Armen hingegen zu früh sterben werden, trotzdem lohnt, ein Mensch zu sein. Diese superromantische, superkomische und auch supertraurige Liebesgeschichte vor dem Hintergrund einer Zivilisation am Abgrund ist eine Achterbahnfahrt durch ein Morgen, das schon heute deutlich sichtbar ist, inklusive sprachlicher Überschläge, eines steilkurvig dahinschießenden Plots und ganz ohne Phantasiebremse. Gary Shteyngart, in Amerika längst Kult- und Bestsellerautor, übertrifft mit dieser Gänsehaut-Satire alles, was die an exzentrischen Verrücktheiten reiche US-Literatur bisher hervorgebracht hat.
