Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows she must find the mother dragon whose draclings have just hatched and get some of the precious milk in order to save her foster sister’s life. Since Kaeldra can communicate with dragons, she is the only one who can accomplish the task. And so she begins a journey that will entwine her fate with that of three little draclings and one would-be dragonslayer—a journey that will become a struggle for life.

Alfred Duggan’s Saxon novels have a special cachet. In The Cunning of the Dove, this masterly author chooses Edward the Confessor as his hero. The story is told by the royal chamberlain. He thinks in English, speaks in French and writes in Latin, but Duggan does our share of the work and the fog is dissipated. St Edward is unwrapped from the shroud of ignorance that has enveloped him, and is presented as a credible human being: a saint, but one whose unworldliness gave him extraordinary political foresight. He is remembered for the splendid foundation of Westminster. But his greatest contribution was his unswerving belief that England needed a Norman rule to unify the country. ‘Before Alfred Duggan wrote this novel Edward the Confessor was probably the dimmest of English kings. But Duggan is a master . . . and brings to life a whole remote age, which we accept, miracles and all.’ Evening Standard ‘He is a true artist, creating and composing from a disciplined imagination. There is no denying the coherence and lucidity of his account’ Times Literary Supplement

Resum: "In The Sound of the Dove, Beverly Bush Patterson explores one of the oldest traditions of American religious folksong, a national heritage of great beauty and dignity that remains vital in the lives and worship of predestinarian Primitive Baptists in the southern mountains. This unaccompanied and frequently unharmonized congregational singing challenges our assumptions about creativity, aesthetics, meaning, and identity. Patterson's revealing study incorporates interviews, field observations, historical research, song transcriptions, and musical analysis. She uses seventeenth-century English documents to trace historical antecedents of Primitive Baptist singing and to frame her discussion of religious belief and gender roles as they intersect with singing. One chapter is devoted to the role of women in this church"

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 1,0, LMU Munich (Department fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Hauptseminar Writing Venice Around 1900, language: English, abstract: Focusing on Henry James's The Wings of the Dove, the present paper explores a plurality of masquerades, conditioned by open secrets and their influence on the communication between the characters. In this respect, I consider masquerades in terms of mutual contracts. One pretends to be someone else and others pretend to believe in one's pretences. Eventually, however, the performers develop the 'symptoms' of their roles in themselves and, thus, blur the distinction between dishonest and honest performances. Therefore, I argue that the masquerades in The Wings of the Dove are performances, which submit to the logic of simulation, revoking the separation of the real from the simulated. Besides, I refer to masks and masquerades not in a literal, but in a metaphorical sense. The first chapter, Masks, examines a rich American heiress's (Milly Theale) designations as dovelike and incurably ill, which turn into self-fulfilling prophecies, thus, indicating a complex relation between masks and the performativity of language and silence. The second chapter, Secrets, focuses on the pluralities of knowledge, ignorance and silence, which Milly's mysterious illness and Lionel 's unknown crime presuppose. The third chapter, Games, argues that the masquerades in The Wings of the Dove violate the binary opposition between truth and deception. Therefore, they are to be understood in regard to the mentioned notion of simulation. The fourth chapter, Coming Outs and Double Binds, demonstrates that coming out of the closet, in other words, the disclosure of one's secret, leads to another closet. The last one, Venice, discusses the Italian city in terms of its relation to the characters' masquerades and importance for the Jamesian t
