Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche; Introduction by Michael Tanner 1
R265 R165 Discovery Miles 1 650 Save R100 (38%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

One of the most iconoclastic philosophers of all time, Nietzsche dramatically rejected notions of good and evil, truth and God. Beyond Good and Evil demonstrates that the world is steeped in false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'. With wit and subversive energy, Nietzsche demands that the individual impose their own 'will to power' upon the world.

Richard Wagner remains, almost 130 years after his death, the most controversial composer in the history of music. Creator of huge and hugely ambitious operas, which have an immense immediate impact, as well as providing food for endless thought and discussion, Wagner has had an influence on many fields outside music. In this lively pocket guide, Michael Tanner gives concise accounts of all his operas - the likes of Parsifal, Lohengrin and Tristan und Isolde - showing how important it is to grasp the dramatic situations at every point, and indicating some of the key musical features. He also provides an outline of Wagner's astonishing life, and shows that he has often been unfairly criticised and made a scapegoat, especially for political events which took place long after his death. Key features include: - Wagner: his life year by year - Wagner: his music work by work - Things people said about Wagner - Essential Wagner: ten great moments - Wagner on CD and DVD - Wagner bibliography This indispensable Faber Pocket Guide provides a wealth of insights into Wagner and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in both and the man and his music. '[P]robably the best introduction ever written to this most complex of composers.' Simon Heffer, Telegraph

The Birth of Tragedy - Out of the Spirit of Music (Paperback, Revised): Friedrich Nietzsche The Birth of Tragedy - Out of the Spirit of Music (Paperback, Revised)
Friedrich Nietzsche; Edited by Michael Tanner; Translated by Shaun Whiteside
R204 R137 Discovery Miles 1 370 Save R67 (33%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Birth of Tragedy created a furore on its first publication in 1871; it has since become one of the seminal books of European culture. Dedicated to Richard Wagner, The Birth of Tragedy is rich in Nietzsche's current enthusiasms for Greek literature and especially tragedy, for Schopenhauer and Wagner's Tristan Und Isolde. Its central vision is the idea that 'only as an aesthetic phenomenon are existence and the world justified'. Making his celebrated distinction between the Apollonian and the Dionysian spirit, Nietzsche presses us to consider why it is that we derive pleasure from tragic art, and what is the relationship between our experiences of suffering in life and in art. The Birth of Tragedy was his first book. Occasionally flawed and impetuous in argument, it is none the less a triumph of passionate energy and insight.

Wagner (Paperback): Michael Tanner Wagner (Paperback)
Michael Tanner
R513 Discovery Miles 5 130 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

While no one would dispute Wagner's ranking among the most significant composers in the history of Western music, his works have been more fiercely attacked than those of any other composer. Alleged to be an unscrupulous womanizer and megalomaniac, undeniably a racist, Wagner's personal qualities and attitudes have often provoked, and continue to provoke, intense hostility that has translated into a mistrust and abhorrence of his music.

In this emphatic, lucid book, Michael Tanner discusses why people feel so passionately about Wagner, for or against, in a way that they do not about other artists who had personal traits no less lamentable than those he is thought to have possessed. Tanner lays out the various arguments made by Wagner's detractors and admirers, and challenges most of them. The author's fascination for the relationships among music, text, and plot generates an illuminating discussion of the operas, in which he persuades us to see many of Wagner's best-known works anew--"The Ring Cycle, Tristan und Isolde, Parsifal." He refrains from lengthy and detailed musical examination, giving instead passionate and unconventional analyses that are accessible to all lovers of music, be they listeners or performers.

In this fiery reassessment of one of the greatest composers in the history of opera, Tanner presents one of the most intelligent and controversial portraits of Wagner to emerge for many years.

What does it take to kill your fellow man?

The horrors of World War One yield the answer for one troubled young man from Littlemore who finds himself at war on two fronts: at home and in the trenches - where his enemies number comrades as well as Germans. His pursuit of inner peace leads to the ultimate sacrifice.

A terrified teenage boy plunges from a bridge into a river before a baying mob of his peers.

Jumping from the Black Bridge is a rite of passage for every Littlemore lad on the cusp of manhood. It is meant to represent a test of courage. But Max Lanham is a self-reliant only-child, unafraid to walk alone, a maverick who regards this as a futile gesture. He is torn: scared to jump but even more scared of the consequences of not doing so.

The ordeal marks Max Lanham out as a misfit and a man constantly at war with his conscience. His isolation is replicated in his dysfunctional family presided over by a manipulative mother Intellectual comfort he draws from a former teacher, now a conscientious objector; fellowship he derives from a simple farm-lad who hero-worships him; while physical solace he finds in the arms of the village prostitute. Ultimately, he seeks peace of mind by forgoing his place at Oxford University in favour of volunteering to fight in the trenches with the Ox & Bucks.

The horrors of war deepen his anguish. He sees operations botched; men routinely slaughtered. Even first-love cannot halt his slide toward madness.

Then a final family row reveals a secret that sends him hurtling toward his destiny. He must brave an ordeal worse than the Black Bridge.

A rough and raunchy ride exposing the dark underbelly of the glamorous Victorian racing set in a taut fact-based story from acclaimed racing writer Michael Tanner. 'ARE THEY COMING?' The last words of champion jockey Fred Archer - nicknamed The Tinman. Whose arrival was he anticipating? Whose arrival did he dread? Mourning the death of his young wife and hounded by creditors, Archer's mind begins unravelling during the 1886 season. He is propped up against the demons threatening to destroy him mentally and racing's criminal element conspiring to do so physically by his friend, racing journalist Algy Haymer. As the action veers from the social whirl of the Victorian racecourse to the squalor of the slap-bangs of the London underworld, Haymer shields Archer from a Jockeys Betting Ring and its enforcers while confronting his own insecurities and a family scandal involving Archer. But Haymer hasn't allowed for the power of 'The Policy' or the predatory wiles of an old flame whose carnal designs on him are only exceeded by her desperation for cash. The repercussions prove devastating. Haymer's guilt demands atonement - and delivers a painful blow.
