Bound to Last: 30 Writers on Their Most Cherish...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Lovers of the printed book, arise! Thirty of today’s top writers are here to tell you you’re not alone. In Bound to Last, an amazing array of authors comes to the passionate defense of the printed book with spirited, never-before-published essays celebrating the hardcover or paperback they hold most dear - not necessarily because of its contents, but because of its significance as a one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable object. Whether focusing on the circumstances behind how a particular book was acquired, or how it has become forever “bound up” with a specific person, time, or place, each piece collected here confirms - poignantly, delightfully, irrefutably - that every book tells a story far beyond the one found within its pages. In addition to a foreword by Ray Bradbury, Bound to Last features original contributions by:Chris Abani, Rabih Alameddine, Anthony Doerr, Louis Ferrante, Nick Flynn, Karen Joy Fowler, Julia Glass, Karen Green, David Hajdu, Terrence Holt, Jim Knipfel, Shahriar Mandanipour, Sarah Manguso, Sean Manning, Joyce Maynard, Philipp Meyer, Jonathan Miles, Sigrid Nunez, Ed Park, Victoria Patterson, Francine Prose, Michael Ruhlman, Elissa Schappell, Christine Schutt, Jim Shepard, Susan Straight, J. Courtney Sullivan, Anthony Swofford, Danielle Trussoni, and Xu Xiaobin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel May, Cynthia Barrett.

Einstein in Bohemia
24,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the spring of 1911, Albert Einstein moved with his wife and two sons to Prague, the capital of Bohemia, where he accepted a post as a professor of theoretical physics. Though he intended to make Prague his home, he lived there for just sixteen months, an interlude that his biographies typically dismiss as a brief and inconsequential episode. Einstein in Bohemia is a spellbinding portrait of the city that touched Einstein's life in unexpected ways - and of the gifted young scientist who left his mark on the science, literature, and politics of Prague. Michael Gordin's narrative is a masterfully crafted account of a person encountering a particular place at a specific moment in time. Despite being heir to almost a millennium of history, Einstein's Prague was a relatively marginal city within the sprawling Austro-Hungarian Empire. Yet Prague, its history, and its multifaceted culture changed the trajectories of Einstein's personal and scientific life. It was here that his marriage unraveled, where he first began thinking seriously about his Jewish identity, and where he embarked on the project of general relativity. Prague was also where he formed lasting friendships with novelist Max Brod, Zionist intellectual Hugo Bergmann, physicist Philipp Frank, and other important figures. Einstein in Bohemia sheds light on this transformative period of Einstein's life and career, and brings vividly to life a beguiling city in the last years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Telemanns Vokalmusik - Über Texte, Formen und W...
110,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) war in allen Bereichen der Instrumentalmusik und der Vokalmusik höchst produktiv und galt seinen Zeitgenossen als moderner und besonders innovativer Komponist, der sich von Ideen und Impulsen der Aufklärung beflügeln liess. Die hier versammelten Aufsätze handeln von der noch wenig erforschten Vokalmusik Telemanns, unter besonderer Berücksichtigung derjenigen Gattung, die den grössten Raum in ihr einnimmt, der kirchlichen Kantate. Die Kantate wird nach ihren Formen, Funktionen und Traditionen befragt, die ihr zugrundeliegende Dichtung wird unter literatur- und ideengeschichtlichen Gesichtspunkten untersucht. Darüber hinaus kommen verwandte Gattungen wie die weltliche Kantate, das Oratorium und die Oden- und Liedkomposition zur Sprache. Ein übergreifendes Interesse gilt den Einflüssen der Aufklärung und ihrer Ästhetik auf die Vokalmusik Telemanns, wobei sich der Begriff der „Klangrede“, wie er von Telemanns Zeitgenossen Johann Mattheson geprägt wurde, als besonders fruchtbar erweist. Dass sich die Musik an Sinngliederung, Sprachmelos und Bildlichkeit der Rede orientiert und dass sie im Durchgang durch diese rhetorische Ausrichtung ihre besondere Autonomie in Konstruktion und Ausdruck gewinnt, ist für die Musikästhetik der Aufklärung ein zentraler Gedanke, der in der Musik Telemanns deutlich hervortritt. Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) was highly productive in all areas of instrumental music, vocal music and opera, and was considered by his contemporaries to be a modern and particularly innovative composer who took inspiration from the ideas and intellectual stimulus of the Enlightenment. The essays collected here are concerned with Telemann’s previously under-researched vocal music, with particular emphasis on the genre which makes up the largest part or it, the church cantata. The forms, functions and traditions of the cantata are critically examined and the poetry on which it is based is studied from the perspectives of literary history and the history of ideas. Related genres such as the secular cantata, the oratorio and settings of odes and songs are also discussed. There is a predominant interest in the influence of the Enlightenment and its aesthetics on Telemann’s vocal music, in which the concept of ‘musical eloquence’ as defined by Telemann’s contemporary Johann Mattheson proves a particularly fruitful area of research. The theory that music achieves its particular autonomy in construction and expression through its rhetorical orientation towards phrasing, vocal melos and linguistic representation is a central idea in Enlightenment musical aesthetics and is clearly represented in Telemann’s music.

The Dark Side of Nation States
259,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Why was there such a far-reaching consensus concerning the utopian goal of national homogeneity in the first half of the twentieth century? Ethnic cleansing is analyzed here as a result of the formation of democratic nation-states, the international order based on them, and European modernity in general. Almost all mass-scale population removals were rationally and precisely organized and carried out in cold blood, with revenge, hatred and other strong emotions playing only a minor role. This book not only considers the majority of population removals which occurred in Eastern Europe, but is also an encompassing, comparative study including Western Europe, interrogating the motivations of Western statesmen and their involvement in large-scale population removals. It also reaches beyond the European continent and considers the reverberations of colonial rule and ethnic cleansing in the former British colonies. Philipp Ther holds a Chair of Central European History at the University of Vienna and was previously Professor of European History at the EUI in Florence. He has published and edited several books on ethnic cleansing, including Redrawing Nations: Ethnic Cleansing in East-Central Europe 1944-1948 (co-edited with A. Siljak; Rowman and Littlefield 2001) and Robbery and Restitution: The Conflict Over Jewish Property in Europe (co-edited with M. Dean and C. Goschler, Berghahn 2007). The German version of The Dark Side of Nation States has won several awards in Poland and Germany.
