1905. Two books in one. Kipling, English short-story writer, novelist and poet, who celebrated the heroism of British colonial soldiers in India and Burma, was the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Puck of Pook's Hill is a loosely linked collection of stories featuring two children, Dan and Una, who meet Puck in a meadow near their home in Sussex. Puck then arranges for a series of historical people to come and tell them stories of important historical events. Rewards and Fairies presents eleven more stories told to Dan and Una by Puck's characters, some of which also appeared in the earlier stories. The two books also contain a number of poems that are associated with the themes of the stories. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Kipling and the Idea of Sacrifice

Although Kipling has never lost his hold on a large and admiring public, recent years have witnessed an increasing critical interest in his work. This book approaches Kipling as a writer who, from the outset of his career, sensed a potential or actual horror at the heart of things. It examines Kipling's search for meaning, a research pursued on the political, moral, and religious planes, through original and highly sophisticated explorations of history and myth. It presents Kipling as a person who knew and understood his own suffering and used it in his search for strategies to deal with the temptations of pessimism that he had known and also the prevailing temptations in a political and intellectual crisis he felt obliged to address.

Sind Sie ein Psychopath? Natürlich nicht. Vielleicht sind Sie eine Führungskraft oder ein sehr spiritueller Mensch. Sie haben Charme, Sie sind unerschrocken und risikofreudig, können harte Entscheidungen treffen. Sie sind sehr aufmerksam und können sich gut auf ein Ziel konzentrieren. Sie werden feststellen, dass das Eigenschaften sind, die Sie mit Psychopathen teilen. Selbstredend sind diese Eigenschaften nützlich, wenn man ein Serienmörder werden will. Aber auch im Gerichtssaal, in der Wirtschaft oder im OP. Oder im Leben eines Heiligen. Jede Medaille hat zwei Seiten. »Eine meisterhafte, sehr lesbare und unterhaltsame Darstellung der Psychopathie und ihrer Manifestationen im Alltag. Manche seiner Ideen werden kontrovers diskutiert werden, aber es ist ein höchst anregendes Buch für alle, die die ›psychopathische‹ Welt, in der sie leben, besser verstehen wollen.« Prof. Dr. Robert Hare, Erfinder der Psychopathy Checklist

A Cinema of Magic Spaces

The film-making partnership of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger was one of the most remarkable and visionary in cinema. They made an extraordinary range of films, from The Spy in Black, and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, to A Canterbury Tale, and The Red Shoes. With champions like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, and revived critical interest worldwide, they now find new generations of admirers. This illuminating new book looks closely at these classic films to explore their complex relationship to national identity, and their interest in exile, borderlands, utopias, escapism, art, and fantasy. Moor reveals for example how the visual imagery of the films of the Second World War question current cinematic styles and how post war films like The Red Shoes and The Tales of Hoffman are in their highly expressive use of design, music and dance utterly international in character.

The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature. Each volume presents contemporary responses to a writer's work, enabling students and researchers to read for themselves, for example, comments on early performances of Shakespeare's plays, or reactions to the first publication of Jane Austen's novels. The carefully selected sources range from landmark essays in the history of criticism to journalism and contemporary opinion, and little published documentary material such as letters and diaries. Significant pieces of criticism from later periods are also included, in order to demonstrate the fluctuations in an author's reputation. Each volume contains an introduction to the writer's published works, a selected bibliography, and an index of works, authors and subjects. .

Life, Death, and Growing Up on the Western Front

DIV This book was inspired by the author’s discovery of an extraordinary cache of letters from a soldier who was killed on the Western Front during the First World War. The soldier was his grandfather, and the letters had been tucked away, unread and unmentioned for many decades. Intrigued by the heartbreak and history of these family letters, Fletcher sought out the correspondence of other British soldiers who had volunteered for the fight against Germany. This resulting volume offers a vivid account of the physical and emotional experiences of seventeen British soldiers whose letters survive. Drawn from different regiments, social backgrounds, and areas of England and Scotland, they include twelve officers and five ordinary “Tommies.”/div DIV /div DIV The book explores the training, journey to France, fear, shellshock, and life in the trenches as well as the leisure, love, and home leave the soldiers dreamed of. Fletcher discusses the psychological responses of 17- and 18-year-old men facing appalling realities and considers the particular pressures on those who survived their fallen comrades. While acknowledging the horror and futility the soldiers of the Great War experienced, the author shows another side to the story, focusing new attention on the loyal comradeship, robust humor, and strong morale that uplifted the men at the Front and created a powerful bond among them./div
