Bonaparte by E. V Tarle( Book )

6 editions published in 1937 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Material. pojetí dějinných událostí a výsledky samostat. bádání o napoleonské epoše odlišují monografii sov. historika od většiny historiografie, která idealisuje N. jako dovršitele Velké revoluce. Tarlé ho naopak charakterisuje jako likvidátora ideálů a sil této revoluce, jejíž národní válku vystřídává imperialistickým výbojem. Permamentní válkou, využívající v dosud nebývalém měřítku hospodář. a lidského potenciálu a vedenou jedinečným vojenským geniem, buduje světovou říši v úzkém zájmu franc. obchodní a průmyslové buržoasie, a vytváří despoticky na troskách feudalismu podmínky pro kapital. vykořisťování námezdné práce. Hospodářský a vojenský souboj s kapitalisticky pokročilejší Anglií posléze prohrává, říše se zhroutí a zbývá jediný kladný přínos: uspíšené rozbití hospod. zaostalého feudalismu v celé Evropě. V závěr. kapitolách podává autor výklad pojmu "bonapartismus" a kritický přehled napoleonské historiografie

Na pozadí moře a přímořské přírody rozvíjené osudy rybáře a lovce, který odešel daleko od lidí a uzavřen v ulitě své osamělosti, žije po léta jen sobě a nepovšimnuty nechává velké události, první světovou válku a Velkou říjnovou revoluci, které změnily svět. Teprve odchod dětí a smrt ženy v něm probudí vědomí planosti života, sobecky věnovaného jen vlastním zájmům. Není však už schopen, aby stanul po boku mladých; odevzdává proto své hospodářství rybářskému kolchozu a sám odchází zaujmout místo strážce majáku

The early twentieth century was a period of sweeping change in Western literature, culture, and art. As the conventions of the Victorian and Edwardian periods gave way to daring modernist experiments, the entire conception of what fiction was and could be shifted. The diverse pieces collected in The Best British Short Stories of 1922 function as a microcosm of this fascinating period in literary history
