TALES OF THE ALHAMBRA (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 18/08/2015
AUTOR-EDITOR

Resumen del eBook

The Tales of the Alhambra : a series of tales and sketches of the Moors and Spaniards was published in May 1832, Consisting of a series of essays and short fiction pieces, it was referred to as his "Spanish Sketch Book." In 1851 Irving wrote the "Authors Revised Edition", also titled Tales of the Alhambra. Tales of the Alha mbra is a collection of essays, verbal sketches, and stories. Care was taken to maintain local coloring and verisimilitude; so that the whole might present a faithful and living picture of that microcosm, that singular little world into which I had been fortuitously thrown; and about which the external world had a very imperfect idea. It was my endeavor scrupulously to depict its half Spanish, half Oriental character; its mixture of the heroic, the poetic, and the grotesque; to revive the traces of grace and beauty fast fading from its walls; to record the regal and chivalrous traditions concerning those who once trod its courts; and the whimsical and superstitious legends of the motley race now burrowing among its ruins. ...

UARDA: A ROMANCE OF ANCIENT EGYPT (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 20/11/2014
GEORG EBERS
AUTOR-EDITOR

Resumen del eBook

Uarda: A Romance of Ancient Egypt by Georg Ebers. The character of "Uarda" and the present story have grown out of the memory of a Fellah girl, half child, half maiden, whom I saw suffer and die in a hut at Abu el Qurnah in the Necropolis of Thebes.I still persist in the conviction I have so frequently expressed, the convic tion that the fundamental traits of the life of the soul have undergone very trivial modifications among civilized nations in all times and ages, the expression of these emotions show considerable variations among different peoples, and at different epochs.In a long, long time ago, "by the walls of Thebesthe old city of a hundred gatesthe Nile spread to a broad river; the heights, which follow the stream on both sides, here take a more decided outline; solitary, almost cone-shaped peaks stand out sharply from the level background of the many-colored. limestone hills, on which no palm-tree flourishes and in which no humble desert-plant can strike root. Rocky crevasses and gorges cut more or less deeply into the mountain range, and up to its ridge extends the desert, destructive of all life, with sand and stones, with rocky cliffs and reef-like, desert hills.Behind the eastern range the desert spreads to the Red Sea; behind the western it stretches without limit, into infinity. In the belief of the Egyptians beyond it lay the region of the dead."Georg Moritz Ebers (18371898), German Egyptologist and novelist, discovered the Egyptian medical papyrus, of ca. 1550 BCE, named for him at Luxor (Thebes) in the winter of 187374. Now in the Library of the University of Leipzig, the Ebers Papyrus is among the most important ancient Egyptian medical papyri. It is one of two of the oldest preserved medical documents anywherethe other being the Edwin Smith Papyrus (ca. 1600 BCE).Clara Bell, nee Poynter (18351927), was an English translator fluent in French, German, Danish, Dutch, Italian, Norwegian, Russian, and Spanish, noted for her translations of works by Henrik Ibsen, Balzac, Georg Ebers, Huysmans, Maupassant, and others. She was educated in France, where she became fluent in French and German; she did not acquire her knowledge of the other languages until after her fortieth birthday. She spent most of her life in London. ... Leer resumen completo

The Code of Hammurabi is probably not the forerunner of biblical laws? The symbolism of the virgin and child can also be found in non-Christian religions? The cross in its various forms, including the swastika, already existed before Jesus Christ? Gods name, written in ancient Hebrew can be found on a stone at the Louvre?This is most certainly a new and original biblical journey that can help each and every one of us to question our trust in the Bible, and perhaps allow us to distinguish the extent to which historical reality surpasses legend owing to the omnipresent influence of this ancient civilization. ...

In a previous novel by this author, A Surprising Legacy, the principal characters in this story, Amos and Sarah Carlisle, settle to a quiet country life after their nomadic existence in a gypsy caravan. Good fortune befalls them when Sarah and daughter Ruth inherit the estate of her childhood sweetheart (Ruths father) when he was killed in action serving in King Georges army in the colonies of the New World. Suddenly their tranquil life, even their marriage, is threatened by the appearance of a character claiming to be Sarahs childhood sweetheart, Joseph Craven, who was believed dead. His facial disfigurement is so severe that recognition is impossible. His memory is supposedly affected by the injuries he has suffered, but his story to explain the confusion about his supposed death is supported by a man of some substance, who claims that he served alongside Joseph as an officer in the army. The family is torn apart in considering whether the inheritance or at least some portion should be repaid to this reincarnation. His existence must be kept secret because should he be discovered, he could face the death penalty for desertion. Amos is convinced that this Joseph and his sponsors are frauds, but Sarah is almost convinced of the opposite, while Ruth desperately longs for real father to be alive. ... Leer resumen completo
