Faust - A Tragedy, Parts One and Two, Fully Revised (Paperback): Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Faust - A Tragedy, Parts One and Two, Fully Revised (Paperback)
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe; Translated by Martin Greenberg
R348 Discovery Miles 3 480 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A classic of world literature, Goethe's Faust is a philosophical and poetic drama full of satire, irony, humor, and tragedy. Martin Greenberg re-creates not only the text's varied meter and rhyme but also its diverse tones and styles-dramatic and lyrical, reflective and farcical, pathetic and coarse, colloquial and soaring. His rendition of Faust is the first faithful, readable, and elegantly written translation of Goethe's masterpiece available in English. At last, the Greenberg Faust is available in a single volume, together with a thoroughly updated translation, preface, and notes. "Greenberg has accomplished a magnificent literary feat. He has taken a great German work, until now all but inaccessible to English readers, and made it into a sparkling English poem, full of verve and wit. Greenberg's translation lives; it is done in a modern idiom but with respect for the original text; I found it a joy to read."-Irving Howe (on the earlier edition)

What a grand love affair people have with food. It is the only thing that can simultaneously delight all five senses. Some people's appetite for food is only exceeded by their appetite for crime.

"The Women's War in the South: Recollections and Reflections of the American Civil War, edited by Charles G. Waugh and Martin H. Greenberg", recounts the manner in which Southern women experienced the war and the changes it brought about in their lives. Filled with excerpts from the letters, books, diaries, and postwar writings the women left behind, it reveals the other side of the war -- the women's war -- through first-person accounts of women running farms, buying and selling goods, working outside the home, serving as spies, and even participating in combat in disguise.

Lighthouse Hauntings (Paperback): Charles Waugh, Martin Greenberg Lighthouse Hauntings (Paperback)

R311 R269 Discovery Miles 2 690 Save R42 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

What is it about lighthouses that stirs the heart and sparks the imagination? Built for strength and permanence, they are nonetheless always vulnerable. We look to them for guidance and reassurance yet never quite lose the feeling of being watched when near them. Their keepers work tirelessly to serve humanity, protecting many hundreds of lives each year; yet they themselves are isolated from other people. And of course, we are ever aware that these often remote outposts can be unforgiving of human frailties, so inevitably they become the setting for tragedy and consequently for spirits that linger at the site of their ruined hopes, their sufferings, and their obsessions. In Lighthouse Hauntings a dozen contemporary authors spin an intriguing mix of supernatural tales around this evocative theme. Some of these never before published stories are just plain creepy, others are mystifying or metaphysical, or even heartwarming, but all are vividly memorable."

Robert Silverberg's Many Trapdoors - Critical Essays on His Science Fiction (Hardcover, New): Charles Elkins, Martin... Robert Silverberg's Many Trapdoors - Critical Essays on His Science Fiction (Hardcover, New)
Charles Elkins, Martin Greenberg
R1,425 Discovery Miles 14 250 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

One of the most popular, prolific, and important science fiction writers, Robert Silverberg is given penetrating analyses by major scholars and critics of the genre. Extending beyond the conventions of popular culture and pulp science fiction, the seven essayists assess Silverberg's body of work as being manifest of the modernist literary tradition, exploring techniques, such as irony, and themes, such as the fragility of identity, utopia and dystopia, and spirituality and transcendence. Noted Silverberg scholar Thomas Clareson contributes an overview of Silverberg's literary career from his first story published in 1954 to the present, and the editors provide a bibliography of his fiction and selected secondary studies, referring to Clareson's definitive bibliography. The trapdoor metaphor used in the title relates to an observation by critic Russell Letson on the complexity of reading Silverberg, which he compares to an experience of one of Silverberg's characters: What seems to be a firm foundation for reality may in fact turn out to be a trapdoor.

R1,423 Discovery Miles 14 230 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Although better known today for such classic and influential science fiction novels as Last and First Men, Odd John, Star Maker and Sirius, Olaf Stapledon also wrote eight other science fiction books, seven volumes of philosophy and social criticism, and hundreds of reviews, lectures, and articles. Common to all his works is a moral vision that is characterized by ecstatic joy and revolutionary zeal, though tempered by detachment and skepticism. This is the first book collection of original essays devoted entirely to Stapledon. Where previous critical interpretation has concentrated on individual works by the author, these essays deal with larger issues in Stapledon's writings and with his relationship to such forces as Marxism and literary modernism. The articles develop new avenues for the exploration of Stapledon's work, focusing on philosophical, linguistic, political, and structural elements, and showing how Stapledon's non-fictional writing may illuminate aspects of the fiction. In addition, the book includes Stapledon's hitherto unpublished manuscript Letters to the Future as well as a primary and secondary bibliography. An important contribution to the study of science fiction and fantasy, The Legacy of Olaf Stapledon will be of interest to scholars and students of Stapledon and of the genre.

Originally published by Rand McNally in 1974, this volume investigates the applicability of science fiction to the study of social foundations of education and its problems. The editors argue that science fiction is an ideal tool for analyzing the problems because it does not possess limitations on the nature of problematic inquiry; its boundary of inquiry is subject only to that of the human imagination. Science fiction offers the student of school and society a methodological tool by which man and his relationships) actual and possible) may be studied. The possibility of ideas simply reinforces their probability, and the link between the present and the future becomes the human imagination.
