The procession that crosses Chaucer's pages is as full of life and as richly textured as a medieval tapestry. The Knight, the Miller, the Friar, the Squire, the Prioress, the Wife of Bath, and others who make up the cast of characters -- including Chaucer himself -- are real people, with human emotions and weaknesses. When it is remembered that Chaucer wrote in English at a time when Latin was the standard literary language across western Europe, the magnitude of his achievement is even more remarkable. But Chaucer's genius needs no historical introduction; it bursts forth from every page of The Canterbury Tales.

"This edition ... contains the sources and major analogues of Chaucer's works (some re-edited from manuscripts closer to his own copies) together with discoveries from the past half-century, some of which have not previously appeared together in print. Special features in this new enterprise include a fresh interpretation of Chaucer's sources for the frame of the work, and modern English translations of all non-English texts; chapters on the individual tales contain an updated survey of the present state of scholarship on their source material".--BOOKJACKET.

This book presents Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in modern English prose. Already Middle English is sufficiently obscure to deter even those interested in English literature. How many have read the whole of the Canterbury Tales? Even fewer will have read his other works. The purpose of this book is to allow the reader easy access to Chaucer's meaning apart from the poetic presentation. This is to put more emphasis on what he says rather than the way he says it. Chaucer's works are a commentary on 14th century life and literature, much of it in prose. There are then two reasons for reading Chaucer. One is for social history, and the other for his poetry. To separate the two can only make his work more accessible. Hopefully this will lead to a greater appreciation of medieval English literature in general.

The Broadview Canterbury Tales is an edition of the complete tales in a text based on the famous Ellesmere Manuscript. Here one may read a Middle English text that is closer to what Chaucer’s scribe, Adam Pinkhurst, actually wrote than that in any other modern edition. Unlike most editions, which draw on a number of manuscripts to recapture Chaucer’s original intention, this edition preserves the text as it was found in one influential manuscript. A sampling of facsimile pages from the original manuscript is also included, along with a selection of other works that give the reader a rich sense of the cultural, political, and literary worlds in which Chaucer lived. The second edition includes a new Middle English glossary, a timeline of Chaucer’s life and times, and detailed page headers showing the fragment and line numbers to assist readers in finding a specific section of the poem.

Die neu entdeckte Biographie von Jack Kerouac über den historischen Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, und den Weg zur Erleuchtung. In den 50er Jahren entdeckte Jack Kerouac seine Faszination für den Buddhismus. Diese spirituelle Erweckung fand ihre literarische Form in "Lebendiger Buddha". Mit großer poetischer Ausdruckskraft erzählt er nicht nur das Leben des Siddhartha Gautama, sondern schreibt gleichzeitig eine Einführung in die buddhistische Lehre. "Lebendiger Buddha" ist das amerikanische Pendant zu Hermann Hesses "Siddhartha".

Die provozierende Vision eines totalitären Staats, in dem Frauen keine Rechte haben: Die Dienerin Desfred besitzt etwas, was ihr alle Machthaber, Wächter und Spione nicht nehmen können, nämlich ihre Hoffnung auf ein Entkommen, auf Liebe, auf Leben ... Margaret Atwoods »Report der Magd« wurde zum Kultbuch einer ganzen Generation und von Volker Schlöndorff unter dem Titel »Die Geschichte der Dienerin« verfilmt.
