Antonina

Antonina

Autor: Wilkie Collins

Número de Páginas: 720

In 'Antonina, or The Fall of Rome', Mr. Collins reproduces in very vivid and gorgeous colors the striking and important events that marked the first steps in the decline of the Roman power. The period affords ample scope to a fertile imagination and a brilliant fancy. We have before us Rome in all its luxury, refinement, and depravity, we watch the spread of the moral gangrene that has eaten into its heart's core. We would direct the attention of our readers particularly to the description and details of the famine while making its grand strides through the devoted city as one of the most powerful and masterly chapters of the book. The story abounds with passages of surpassing beauty and striking eloquence, and we are presented with a succession of artistically arranged scenes, portrayed with all the exuberant fancy of a poet and all the brilliant prismatic coloring of a painter. This book has a powerful attraction to the lovers of imaginative literature and there is a charm about the story which has ensured its popularity and success.

Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear. At the brightest time in our lives, the darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we'd worked so hard for. We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we'd had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream...

Claude Monet

Claude Monet

Autor: Julian Beecroft

A gorgeous new edition with the cover printed on silver. Towards the end of his life and much inspired by Japanese water gardens, Monet spent a great deal of time in his beloved Giverny. Adorned with poppies, blue sage, dahlias and irises, the waters were disturbed only by bamboos and water lilies. His water garden was originally created to satisfy a need to be near water, and to provide a visual feast that could be enjoyed from his house. The pond was fed by the river Ru, and weeping willow and silver birch hung over its edges, caressing the fronds of the greenery and blossoms below. Its famous green wooden footbridge was built across the water and it became the central focus of many of his works. He said, ‘It took me some time to understand my water lilies. I planted them for pleasure.’ and so he began to work on what is probably the most famous series of paintings the world has ever seen.

Três mulheres

Autor: Lisa Taddeo

Número de Páginas: 310

"It thrills us and torments us. It controls our thoughts, destroys our lives, and it's all we live for. Yet we almost never speak of it. And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored--until now. Over the past eight years, journalist Lisa Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds. The result, Three Women, is the deepest nonfiction portrait of desire ever written and one of the most anticipated books of the year. We begin in suburban Indiana with Lina, a homemaker and mother of two whose marriage, after a decade, has lost its passion. She passes her days cooking and cleaning for a man who refuses to kiss her on the mouth, protesting that "the sensation offends" him. To Lina's horror, even her marriage counselor says her husband's position is valid. Starved for affection, Lina battles daily panic attacks. When she reconnects with an old flame through social media, she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming. In North Dakota we meet Maggie, a seventeen-year-old high school student who finds a confidant in her handsome, married English teacher. By Maggie's account,...

When Lauren and Ryan's marriage reaches the breaking point, they come up with an unconventional plan. They decide to take a year off in the hopes of finding a way to fall in love again. One year apart, and only one rule: they cannot contact each other. Aside from that, anything goes.

These influences, as well as her own healing process and the challenges of living apart from Ryan, begin to change Lauren's ideas about monogamy and marriage. She starts to question: When you can have romance without loyalty and commitment without marriage, when love and lust are no longer tied together, what do you value? What are you willing to fight for? This is a love story about what happens when the love fades. It's about staying in love, seizing love, forsaking love, and committing to love with...

A experiência das raízes e o dekassegui

O termo dekassegui aponta a condição do trabalhador estrangeiro e nipo-descendente na indústria japonesa. Pressionado por perspectivas adversas de emprego no Brasil e estimulado pela legislação no país de destino, aceita submeter-se a trabalhos não-qualificados, atraído pelo valor de câmbio da moeda japonesa e com planos de retorno vantajoso após alguns anos. Esta pesquisa pretende um estudo qualitativo de Psicologia Social atento aos temas antagonistas do enraizamento e do desenraizamento, duas noções advindas da experiência e obra de Simone Weil e Ecléa Bosi. Nossas hipóteses formaram-se em torno de duas suposições principais: 1) A condição dekassegui, em grande medida, instaura desenraizamento a) por quase deter o indivíduo no regime alienante e absorvente do trabalho subalterno e simples, impedindo ou empobrecendo a participação do nipo-descendente e sua nova experiência de cidade; b) por acompanhar uma inesperada resistência e até hostilidade dos japoneses contra os nipo-descendentes. 2) A possibilidade da condição dekassegui, ainda assim, apoiar e satisfazer o anseio por uma experiência do Japão e da cultura japonesa, é dependente da qualidade...

The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington

Autor: Leonora Carrington

“Complete Stories, a collection of Carrington’s published and unpublished short stories—many newly translated from their original French and Spanish—is a terrific introduction to her bizarre, dreamlike worlds.” —Carmen Maria Machado, NPR Surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington (1917–2011) was a master of the macabre, of gorgeous tableaus, biting satire, roguish comedy, and brilliant, effortless flights of the imagination. Nowhere are these qualities more ingeniously brought together than in the works of short fiction she wrote throughout her life. Published to coincide with the centennial of her birth, The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington collects for the first time all of her stories, including several never before seen in print. With a startling range of styles, subjects, and even languages (several of the stories are translated from French or Spanish), The Complete Stories captures the genius and irrepressible spirit of an amazing artist’s life.

Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds.
