The aerodrome : a love story by Rex Warner( Book )

104 editions published between 1941 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1941, The Aerodrome is one of the few works of fiction in the twentieth century to understand the dangerous yet glamorous appeal of fascism and the less than satisfactory answer of traditional democracy - and to transmute their deadly opposition into terms of enduring art. Rex Warner brilliantly invents, on one side, a thoroughly degenerate Village representing fallen man, and on the other side a great Aerodrome dedicated to ruthless efficiency. The ideological struggle between the idealistic Air Vice-Marshal and the hero-narrator from the Village is portrayed with poetry, narrative speed, and great simplicity of language. It is a great symbolic novel of our time, as pertinent today as when it was written

El joven César presentaba los primeros pasos de César en el turbulento mundo de la política romana. Aquí aparece ya como hombre maduro, guerrero, legislador, gobernante, profundo conocedor de la naturaleza humana y finalmente como el hombre más poderoso del imperio romano. Toda la obra es un monólogo interior que el dictador se recita a sí mismo durante el insomnio, la noche que precede a su asesinato. Apartándose de lo anecdótico Warner logra transmitir la talla humana e intelectual de Julio César

The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

4 editions published between 1961 and 1979 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Oresteia Aeschylus addressed the bloody chain of murder and revenge within the royal family of Argos. As they move from darkness to light, from rage to self-governance, from primitive ritual to civilized institution, their spirit of struggle and regeneration becomes an everlasting song of celebration. In Agamemnon, a king's decision to sacrifice his daughter and turn the tide of war inflicts lasting damage on his family, culminating in a terrible act of retribution; The Libation Bearers deals with the aftermath of Clytemnestra's regicide, as her son Orestes sets out to avenge his father's death; and in The Eumenides, Orestes is tormented by supernatural powers that can never be appeased. Forming an elegant and subtle discourse on the emergence of Athenian democracy out of a period of chaos and destruction, The Oresteia is a compelling tragedy of the tensions between our obligations to our families and the laws that bind us together as a society. - Amazon
