Ihre Aufgabe ist sensibel, ihre Macht ist groß. Ein unbedachtes Wort kann weltweit Krisen auslösen und politische Erdbeben verursachen. Jedes Jahr im August treffen sich in Jackson Hole, Wyoming – fernab der Weltöffentlichkeit –, die vierzig wichtigsten Zentralbanker der Welt. Sie stehen in dauernden Interessenkonflikten zwischen nationalen Interessen und internationalem Druck. Neil Irwin erklärt spannend und anschaulich, was Zentralbanker tun und wie es zu massiven Fehlentscheidungen kommen kann. Er beschreibt, welche großen Auswirkungen kleine Unstimmigkeiten zwischen Jens Weidmann, Mario Draghi und Ben Bernanke haben können. Und er zeigt, wie die zukünftigen Herausforderungen, Allianzen und Strategien der Zentralbanker aussehen könnten.

Widely performed and studied, The Alchemist is one of the world’s great comedies. It was first performed in 1610, and its success kept it in the repertory until the closing of the theatres. After the Restoration, it was one of the first plays to be revived and it has been produced with increasing frequency ever since. This edition is based on a reconsideration of the early texts, but the spelling and punctuation are modernised. The comprehensive introduction details Jonson’s life and the play’s stage history, discusses the text in detail, and has a section of special interest on alchemy. This is a must for scholars and theatre-goers alike.

"My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky." Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams." Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book. With over a million and a half copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired. Paulo Coelho's charming fable, now available in English for the first time, will enchant and inspire an even wider audience of readers for generations to come. The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist. The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.

In a sweeping epic of dazzling magic, soaring suspense, and dark longing, three immortal souls are united by fate and a fearless ambition that will change the course of history–even as it destroys their own way of life. . . . On an upper floor of a plush, high-security building on Central Park West, an elegant man sits in the office of Dr. Anne Kramer, confessing to the heinous murder that has horrified the modern world. Randolf Sontime is renowned for his personal charm, and Dr. Kramer is fighting to keep from falling victim to it. For the first time in her life, she truly understands the meaning of the word “charisma.” Not knowing that her own destiny is irrevocably tied to his, Anne Kramer listens to the story of Sontime’s life. “It began with the magic, you see. And so, perforce, must I.” As a boy named Han at the House of Ra, an isolated oasis in the Egyptian desert of a far ancient time, Sontime lived in privilege. There the chosen were trained in the science of alchemy–magic, philosophy, miracles. Only two other initiates were as skilled as he: Akan, quiet and studious, a boy whose thirst for knowledge was matched only by his hunger for truth; and Nefar, beautiful and brilliant, a girl as filled with wonder and unfathomable ambition as Han himself. Together they discovered that in union, theirs was a power unmatched in the physical world. But even in the House of Ra, there were boundaries to be observed, knowledge that only the masters understood and feared. As the threesome’s thirst for answers–and for each other–deepened, they were tempted by the dark arts that they had sworn to avoid. “Look at three magnificent youths who stand astride your world and scoff at the rules you must obey. . . . Look at us, and call us gods.” Their power was palpable, their desire total–until the fateful moment when their alliance was forever damned, their gifts horribly corrupted. A seductive work that seethes with mystery and passion, The Alchemist hurtles readers back through time to an era when magic was sacred and the workings of the world lay in the hands of a few gifted, but tortured souls. In a stunning feat of unbridled imagination, Donna Boyd has created her most hypnotic novel to date. From the Hardcover edition.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universitat Hamburg (Institut fur Anglistik), Veranstaltung: Ben Jonson: Volpone und der Alchimist, 11 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Komodie The Alchemist von Ben Jonson ist eines der herausragenden satirischen Stucke seiner Zeit. Es handelt von drei Betrugern, die behaupten, der Alchemie machtig zu sein, und damit die Leichtglaubigkeit und die Gier ihrer Opfer ausnutzen. Die folgende Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Raum- und Zeitstruktur dieses Stuckes. Als Primarliteratur dient die 1985 erschienene Ausgabe von The Alchemist. Als theoretische Grundlage fur diese Untersuchung beziehe ich mich auf Manfred Pfisters Das Drama. Der erste Teil befasst sich mit der zeitgenossischen Buhne, dem realen raumlichen Kontext und dem fiktiven Schauplatz von The Alchemist. Des Weiteren soll die Raumstruktur innerhalb des Stuckes analysiert werden. Dabei werde ich mich an Pfisters Terminologie und Einteilungsmethodik orientieren. Der zweite Teil befasst sich mit den raumlichen Lokalisierungstechniken und der Konkretisierung der Chronologie, sowie der Zeitstruktur innerhalb des Stuckes und der Semantisierung der Zeit. Den Schlussteil bildet die Zusammenfassung der Ergebnisse und deren Auswertung in Hinblick auf die Anwendbarkeit von Pfisters Terminologie. Der folgende Abschnitt befasst sich mit der historischen Buhne zur Zeit Ben Jonsons. The Alchemist wurde 1610 im Blackfriars Playhouse im Londoner Stadtteil Blackfriars von den King's Men uraufgefuhrt. Das Blackfriars Playhouse war eines von drei Theatern in London. Es handelte sich um ein indoor-Theater, dass 600-700 Zuschauer fasste und sich am Playhouse Yard befand: "
