Gulliver's travels by Jonathan Swift( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gulliver's Travels is one of the few works of English literature which is also a landmark in world literature. Jonathan Swift's account of Lemuel Gulliver's adventures in the fantastical societies of 'remote nations' was an instant best-seller on publication in 1726 and has remained in the public imagination ever since, as both a satiric fantasy and an analysis of the human condition. This scholarly edition offers an authoritative text, based on the widest possible historical collation of the many editions published in Swift's lifetime; a detailed introduction and textual apparatus; and appendices and illustrations presenting important ancillary material with new clarity. Extensive notes and commentary open out the many layers of meaning and allusion in the text, identify new sources and parallels and offer wide-ranging historical background information. An important addition to the Cambridge Swift Edition, this volume will be indispensable for scholars and students of eighteenth-century literature and ideas."--Publisher's website

"Der berühmteste Liebesgedichte-Zyklus der Weltliteratur liegt nun in einer einsprachigen Ausgabe vor. Shakespeares Liebesverständnis ist so zeitlos wie modern: Die oder der Geliebte muss nicht mehr nur schön und vollkommen sein. Denn Liebe ist Passion und somit der Zeit und der Veränderung unterworfen. Nur in der Dichtung sind Schönheit und Leidenschaft der Zerstörung und Vergänglichkeit entzogen."--

Der silberne Schwan Roman by Benjamin Black( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2020 in German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dublin, 50er-Jahre. Als Billy Hunt, ein Freund aus Collegetagen, sich bei Quirke meldet, weil sich seine junge, attraktive Frau Deirdre angeblich das Leben genommen hat, kann Quirke den Ärger schon von Weitem riechen. Quirke, Pathologe und ehemaliger Trinker, ist jedoch kein Mann, der dem Ärger gerne aus dem Weg geht, und so ermittelt er auf eigene Faust. Deirdre, Besitzerin des Schönheitssalons>>Der silberne Schwan>>, ist ermordet worden, und in Betracht kommen vor allem ihr Geliebter und Partner Leslie White, ein undurchsichtiger ehemaliger Friseur, der es nach Deirdres Tod zu allem Überfluss auch noch auf Quirkes Tochter abgesehen hat, sowie der seltsame Geistheiler Dr. Kreutz, den eigentlich nur Frauen aufsuchen. Angetrieben von der eigenen Einsamkeit, dem schlechten Verhältnis zu seiner Tochter und von einer unstillbaren Neugier wird Quirke in Dublins zwielichtige Welt von sexuellen Obsessionen, Prüderie, Erpressung und Mord hineingezogen, in der selbst der Respekt einflössende Inspektor Hackett ihm kaum Unterstützung bieten kann. (Quelle: Klappentext)

La maison des feuilles by Mark Z Danielewski( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Years ago, when House of Leaves was first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. No one could have anticipated the small but devoted following this terrifying story would soon command. Starting with an odd assortment of marginalized youth--musicians, tattoo artists, programmers, strippers, environmentalists, and adrenaline junkies--the book eventually made its way into the hands of older generations, who not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged children. Now, for the first time, this astonishing novel is made available in book form, complete with the original colored words, vertical footnotes, and newly added second and third appendices. The story remains unchanged, focusing on a young family that moves into a small home on Ash Tree Lane where they discover something is terribly wrong: their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Of course, neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story--of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams
