9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Un anciano con un solo ojo, con un manto gris y sombrero de ala ancha, apoyándose de un bastón. Un vagabundo que aparece cuando menos se le espera, trayendo triunfo o perdición. El dios de la profecía, la poesía y el destino. Un cambiaformas. Un hechicero. El dios Odín es una figura dramática en la mitología nórdica y es aún parte del imaginario popular. Ha sido la inspiración para figuras como Gandalf el Gris, de J.R.R. Tolkien, y todavía figura en literatura moderna tan variada como los cómics de Marvel o la novela de Neil Gaiman American Gods (2001). Junto a su hijo Thor, Odín es uno de los dioses nórdicos mejor conocidos y a menudo es fácil olvidar que alguna vez estuvo en el corazón de un panteón adorado con devoción por millones de europeos en la Edad Media. Odín tiene muchos nombres y títulos (más de doscientos, según una fuente), pero su título más conocido es el de “Padre de todos” o “Padre Universal”, el co-creador de la Tierra (el “Midgard”), la humanidad y todas las criaturas que habitan este mundo. Es también, de forma importante, el dios de la profecía, el éxtasis y la poesía, todos roles conectados muy estrechamente en el mundo nórdico, donde la línea entre poeta y profeta era borrosa y eran vistos como poseedores de inspiración a través de una especie de furia extática. Estos roles estaban conectados al patronazgo de Odín sobre el conocimiento, en especial aquel de tipo místico, ya que él era el descubridor de las runas mágicas y canciones que luego transmitió a la humanidad. Esto no llegó sin sacrificio, puesto que hubo de arrancarse su propio ojo y yacer muerto por nueve días para adquirirlo. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1. Spanish.

Louisiana Voodoo
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Louisiana Voodoo, also known as New Orleans Voodoo, originated from the traditions of the African diaspora. It is a cultural form of the Voodoo religions which historically developed within the French, Spanish, and Creole speaking African-American population of the U.S. state of Louisiana. It is one of many incarnations of African-based religions rooted in the West African Dahomean Vodou tradition and the Central African traditions. They became syncretized with the Catholic religion and Francophone culture of South Louisiana as a result of the slave trade. Louisiana Voodoo is often confused with but is not completely separable from Haitian Vodou and southeastern U.S. hoodoo. It differs from Haitian Vodou in its emphasis upon Gris-gris, voodoo queens, use of "Hoodoo" occult paraphernalia and Li Grand Zombi (snake deity). This emphasis has marked the culture of Afro Diaspora, francophone Louisiana within the Western media. It was through Louisiana Voodoo that such terms as gris-gris (a Wolof term) and voodoo dolls were introduced into the American lexicon.

THE GRAPHIC CANON (Seven Stories Press) is a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind trilogy that brings classic literatures of the world together with legendary graphic artists and illustrators. There are more than 130 illustrators represented and 190 literary works over three volumes—many newly commissioned, some hard to find—reinterpreted here for readers and collectors of all ages. Volume 1 takes us on a visual tour from the earliest literature through the end of the 1700s. Along the way, we're treated to eye-popping renditions of the human race's greatest epics:  Gilgamesh,  The Iliad,  The Odyssey (in watercolors by Gareth Hinds), The  Aeneid,  Beowulf, and  The Arabian Nights, plus later epics  The Divine Comedy and  The Canterbury Tales (both by legendary illustrator and graphic designer Seymour Chwast),  Paradise Lost, and  Le Morte D'Arthur. Two of ancient Greece's greatest plays are adapted—the tragedy  Medea by Euripides and Tania Schrag’s uninhibited rendering of the very bawdy comedy  Lysistrata by Aristophanes (the text of which is still censored in many textbooks). Also included is Robert Crumb’s rarely-seen adaptation of James Boswell’s  London Journal, filled with philosophical debate and lowbrow debauchery. Religious literature is well-covered and well-illustrated, with the Books of Daniel and Esther from the Old Testament, Rick Geary’s awe-inspiring new rendition of the Book of Revelation from the New Testament, the  Tao te Ching, Rumi’s Sufi poetry, Hinduism’s  Mahabharata, and the Mayan holy book  Popol Vuh, illustrated by Roberta Gregory. The Eastern canon gets its due, with  The Tale of Genji (the world’s first novel, done in full-page illustrations reminiscent of Aubrey Beardsley), three poems from China’s golden age of literature lovingly drawn by pioneering underground comics artist Sharon Rudahl, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, a Japanese Noh play, and other works from Asia. Two of Shakespeare’s greatest plays ( King Lear and  A Midsummer Night’s Dream) and two of his sonnets are here, as are Plato’s  Symposium,  Gulliver’s Travels,  Candide,  A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Renaissance poetry of love and desire, and  Don Quixote visualized by the legendary Will Eisner. Some unexpected twists include a Native American folktale, an Incan play, Sappho’s poetic fragments, bawdy essays by Benjamin Franklin, the love letters of Abelard and Heloise, and the decadent French classic  Dangerous Liaisons, as illustrated by Molly Crabapple. The Graphic Canon, Volume 2 gives us a visual cornucopia based on the wealth of literature from the 1800s. Several artists—including Maxon Crumb and Gris Grimly—present their versions of Edgar Allan Poe’s visions. The great American novel  Huckleberry Finn is adapted uncensored for the first time, as Twain wrote it. The bad boys of Romanticism—Shelley, Keats, and Byron—are visualized here, and so are the Brontë sisters. We see both of Coleridge’s most famous poems: “Kubla Khan” and “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” (the latter by British comics legend Hunt Emerson). Philosophy and science are ably represented by ink versions of Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra and Darwin’s  On the Origin of Species. Frankenstein,  Moby-Dick,  Les Misérables,  Great Expectations,  Middlemarch,  Anna Karenina,  Crime and Punishment (a hallucinatory take on the pivotal murder scene), Thoreau’s  Walden (in spare line art by John Porcellino of King-Cat Comics fame), “The Drunken Boat” by Rimbaud,  Leaves of Grass by Whitman, and two of Emily Dickinson’s greatest poems are all present and accounted for. John Coulthart has created ten magnificent full-page

Lo Que Te Pertenece/ What Belongs to You
24,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Con un inusual virtuosismo estilístico y una cautivadora potencia emocional, esta novela sobre el deseo y sus consecuencias está destinada a convertirse en un clásico. El espléndido debut de Greenwell ha sido merecedor del British Book Prize, nominado al National Book Award y seleccionado como uno de los mejores libros del año por los principales medios de comunicación estadounidenses. En los baños públicos del Palacio Nacional de Cultura de Sofía, un profesor de literatura estadounidense conoce a Mitko, un joven magnético a quien paga por sexo. Movido por un deseo incontenible, regresa a Mitko una y otra vez tratando de descifrar la historia personal del joven, marcada por los excesos y la incomprensión de un mundo que apenas le presta atención, pero solo consigue verse atrapado en una relación donde la ternura y el anhelo dan paso a la humillación y al miedo. Mientras lucha por reconciliarse con sus propios sentimientos, una noticia inesperada le fuerza a evocar su traumática adolescencia y la tensa relación con su padre, en una América profunda que tiene similitudes desconcertantes con esta Bulgaria gris y decadente donde ha decidido instalarse. Lo que te pertenece es una historia indeleble que se mueve por los sombríos rincones de una sociedad marcada por el comunismo y que ahonda en las cicatrices y las culpabilidades del pasado, esas marcas que pueden decidir quiénes somos y cómo amamos. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Longlisted for the National Book Award in Fiction • A Finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction • A Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction • A Finalist for the James Taite Black Prize for Fiction • A Finalist the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize • A Finalist for the Green Carnation Prize • A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice • A Los Angeles Times Bestseller Named One of the Best Books of the Year by More Than Fifty Publications, Including: The New Yorker, The Paris Review, The New York Times (selected by Dwight Garner), GQ, The Washington Post, Esquire, NPR, Slate, Vulture, the San Francisco Chronicle, The Guardian (London), The Telegraph (London), The Evening Standard (London), The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Miami Herald, The Millions, BuzzFeed, The New Republic (Best Debuts of the Year), Kirkus Reviews, and Publishers Weekly (One of the Ten Best Books of the Year) 'Garth Greenwell's What Belongs to You appeared in early 2016, and is a short first novel by a young writer; still, it was not easily surpassed by anything that appeared later in the year....It is not just first novelists who will be envious of Greenwell's achievement.'?James Wood, The New Yorker On an unseasonably warm autumn day, an American teacher enters a public bathroom beneath Sofia’s National Palace of Culture. There he meets Mitko, a charismatic young hustler, and pays him for sex. He returns to Mitko again and again over the next few months, drawn by hunger and loneliness and risk, and finds himself ensnared in a relationship in which lust leads to mutual predation, and tenderness can transform into violence. As he struggles to reconcile his longing with the anguish it creates, he’s forced to grapple with his own fraught history, the world of his southern childhood where to be queer was to be a pariah. There are unnerving similarities between his past and the foreign country he finds himself in, a country whose geography and griefs he discovers as he learns more of Mitko’s own narrative, his private history of illness, exploitation, and want. What Belongs to You is a stunning debut novel of desire and its consequences. With lyric intensity and startling eroticism, Garth Greenwell has created an indelible story about the ways in which our pasts and cultures, our scars and shames can shape who we are and determine how we love.

Jusqu'ou peut-on aller pour survivre ?Paul, chirurgien, n'a rien d'un tueur. Pourtant... Echappe d'un hopital islandais, ou il avait ete place en quarantaine apres une grave epidemie virale, il affronte le froid et la neige, et se cache dans un refuge sur le plateau desertique de l'ile. Aux abois, il assassine un ranger et masque son crime en accident. S'il n'obtient pas l'aide du Dr Samueldottir, sa seule connaissance sur l'ile, il est condamne. Il contacte sa collegue qui, ignorant le drame, accepte de l'heberger. Il faut faire vite, l'hiver s'installe. Elle tombe sous le charme, Paul joue le jeu, mais ne songe qu'au stratageme qu'il met en place pour quitter l'ile : un plan diabolique dessine avec la precision d'un chirurgien.Frissons garantis avec la suite de Pandemic, l'aventure dramatique d'un chirurgien !EXTRAITL'homme, concentre, contemple son travail. Il parait satisfait. La tempete de neige s'est calmee. Son allure est bizarre, il porte une sorte de cape, informe, en plastique noir sur laquelle glissent imperceptiblement les flocons. A quelques centaines de metres, le refuge, sur le plateau desertique, est a peine visible. Le toit noir a disparu. On ne distingue qu'une masse grise contrastant si peu avec l'environnement blanc, ou gris, c'est selon, mais toujours oppressant. Bizarrement il porte des chaussures incongrues, presque ridicules dans un tel contexte, des mocassins d'ete. Son visage est envahi par une barbe rousse qui lui mange les trois-quarts de la face. Ses traits sont tires.L'homme est ereinte, a l'evidence. Autre etrangete il est nu-tete. Pas de couvre-chef dans ce desert arctique ! Pas de gants non plus. Dans la solitude il marmonne des propos incomprehensibles, peut etre une priere. De toute facon personne n'est la pour l'entendre. Mon Dieu, qu'ai-je fait !A PROPOS DE L'AUTEURPhilippe Le Douarec est chirurgien, fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Il enseigne l'histoire de la medecine et l'anatomie. Il connait bien l'Islande, qu'il a traversee du nord au sud... en courant.
