Berlin Alexanderplatz

The great novel of 1920s Berlin life, in a superb new translation by Michael Hofmann Franz Biberkopf is back on the streets of Berlin. Determined to go straight after a stint in prison, he finds himself thwarted by an unpredictable external agency that looks an awful lot like fate. Cheated, humiliated, thrown from a moving car; embroiled in an underworld of pimps, thugs, drunks and prostitutes, Franz picks himself up over and over again - until one day he is struck a monstrous blow which might just prove his final downfall. A dazzling collage of newspaper reports, Biblical stories, drinking songs and urban slang, Berlin Alexanderplatz is the great novel of Berlin life: inventing, styling and recreating the city as reality and dream; mimicking its movements and rhythms; immortalizing its pubs, abattoirs, apartments and chaotic streets. From the gutter to the stars, this is the whole picture of the city. Berlin Alexanderplatz brought fame in 1929 to its author Alfred Döblin, until then an impecunious writer and doctor in a working-class neighbourhood in the east of Berlin. Success at home was short-lived, however; Doblin, a Jew, left Germany the day after the Reichstag Fire in 1933, and did not return until 1945. This landmark translation by Michael Hofmann is the first to do justice to Berlin Alexanderplatz in English, brilliantly capturing the energy, prodigality and inventiveness of Döblin's masterpiece.

Andrew Brewster Crawford, AKA “A.B.C.”, a playwright obsessed with the glamour, glory, and gloom of the Kennedy era, has written a play about the last day of JFK’s life in order to cast himself as the martyred president, win the love of a beautiful “Jackie Kennedy type”, and live happily ever after in a Camelot of his own creation.He’s got the great man down. The wind-swept haircut. The sailing-ready nautical digs. The Boston-by-way-of-Harvard accent. The easy witticisms to defuse tension. But in A.B.C.’s quest to fashion himself after his hero, JFK, and mount his magnum opus, he conducts himself more like LBJ, a man who believed that the quickest route from point A to point B ran underground.  O Jackie! is a story about the internal and external chaos created when an artist with both a superman and inferiority complex chooses to be the self he wishes he was, instead of the self he truly is.  Kevin Hageman (co-writer and creator of the LEGO Movies) on O Jackie!:  "A wonderfully stylish and funny portrait of a man gifted with such ambition, talent, and self-destruction, I dare you to put the book down.... As the quote, 'There is no substitute for the real thing' came frequently to the mind of the book’s Andrew Brewster Crawford, it also came to my mind as I read this dazzling debut novel by Alexander Carver - he is the real thing." 1.

Jiddu Krishnamurti was a famous Indian philosopher, speaker and writer. He explored ideas like the nature of mind, meditation, inquiry, psychological revolution, human relationships and bringing about a radical change in society in his lectures and writings, emphasising that such a revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political or social. His most famous books are The First and Last Freedom, The Only Revolution, and Krishnamurti's Notebook. In this Hindi-language translation of The First and Last Freedom, Krishnamurti emphasises on the importance of self-understanding, arguing that truth cannot be found within formal institutions, organised religions and their dogmas or in any guru or outside authority. He claims that we are all operating with the sole focus of the self and its context in time and place - this results in competition, conflict and the constant promotion of one's own self over all others, even those closest to us. He further claims that the only hope is the internal transformation of individuals, and finally, he seems to believe that this may be possible to a great enough extent to change society. Taking a more philosophical and psychological approach to why we’re miserable, Krishnamurti says that by changing ourselves, we are changing society for the better. By taking us through society’s common concerns, such as suffering and fear, love and loneliness, sex and death, the meaning of life, the nature of God, and personal transformation - consistently relating these topics to the essential search for pure truth and perfect freedom, Krishnamurti helps us contemplate about life itself.Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi. 1.

Summary, Analysis, and Review of Shauna Niequis...

Please note: This is an analysis and key takeaways of the book and not the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Shauna Niequist's Present over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living includes a summary of the book, review, analysis and key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. About the book summarized here: Those familiar with Brene Brown's Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, or work on shame, vulnerability, empathy, and resilience, might wonder if Shauna Niequist read or listened to Brown's book and immediately sat down to write her own book, Present over Perfect. Then a more astute listener might go back and listen again to the foreword, from Brene Brown. Niequist calls Present over Perfect a love story about letting us be loved with all our imperfections. Self-help Christianity might be the best classification of this book: an honest, heartfelt sharing of one woman's realization that she can't have it all and the deliberate process of redefining her life. At 36, Shauna Niequist was a successful writer, speaking at colleges, retreats, and churches; she was also at her breaking point, stressed to the point of physical ailments. She had tried the external tricks of busy moms - better time management, having the cleaners come more often - but when reaching out for guidance, what spoke to her most was her mentor's suggestion that she remake her life from the inside out. Niequist chronicles her three-plus-year journey in a series of vignettes, many crafted while on vacations or retreats, that focus on what she had to leave behind to make her life more meaningful, connected, present, and deeply grounded in God's love. 1.

Summa Theologica, Volume 2: Part I of Part II (...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Summa Theologica consists of three main parts. The second part is divided in two, and this recording presents Prima Secundae - Part I of Part II. Taken in its entirety, Summa Theologica forms an essential contribution to the canon of Catholic doctrine and was written in the last decade of his life by Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), an Italian-born Dominican friar. Although he died before completing it, the body of thought it contains is a continuing influence to the education and guidance of students of theology in the main Christian traditions. Prima Secundae comprises seven essential treatises on the subjects of: The last end Human acts Passions HabitsVice and sinLaw GraceWithin these treatises the writer considers a vast range of topics. In the Treatise on the Last End he explores and illuminates the Catholic understanding of human actions and related questions on reason and appetite design and causality. In the Treatise on Human Acts his subject is the will and the nature of good and evil. In the Treatise on the Passions he undertakes a detailed consideration of the nature and importance of the major feelings and emotions: love and hatred, concupiscence and delight, pain and sorrow, fear and daring, and anger. In the Treatise on Habits he examines the relationships existing between habits and their causes and effects as well as the nature and essence of the intellectual, moral, cardinal, and theological virtues. The treatise ends with a consideration of the beatitudes and blessings of the Holy Ghost. The Treatise on Vice and Sin deals with understanding the essential nature of vice and sin, the internal and external causes of sin, the role of human free will, the role of the devil, the corruption of nature, and the differences between venial and mortal sins and their corresponding punishments.

Iranian-Americans in the Memoirs of Firoozeh Dumas
21,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The search for identity comprises a major theme in modern literature, especially in the writing of memoirs. A memoir supports the idea that everybody has a story to tell and everybody's story counts. Firoozeh Dumas's memoirs deal with both external and internal factors that she confronts while living in a new country with new conditions. Unable to control the situations she faces, Dumas compares her native country Iran with her new country, the United States. In other words, she selects certain historical events and tries to translate Iranian culture to Americans with a humorous style. She gradually introduces her family members, cultural differences and inner conflicts of being both a Middle Easterner and an American. In her search for identity between two cultures, Dumas tries to show that Iranians and Americans truly have more in common than they have differences. This work intends to explore the effects of cultural differences in the life of a writer who grew up both in Iran and America. Furthermore, the book shows the importance of Dumas's narrative strategies for promoting cultural understanding and rethinking cultural and generational differences.
