The old curiosity shop by Charles Dickens( Book )

19 editions published between 1962 and 1986 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sensational bestselling story of Little Nell, the beautiful child thrown into a shadowy, terrifying world, seems to belong less to the history of the Victorian novel than to folklore, fairy tale, or myth. The sorrows of Nell and her grandfather are offset by Dickens's creation of a dazzling contemporary world inhabited by some of his most brilliantly drawn characters-the eloquent ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller; the hungry maid known as the "Marchioness"; the mannish lawyer Sally Brass; Quilp's brow-beaten mother-in-law; and Quilp himself, the lustful, vengeful dwarf, whose demonic energy makes a vivid counterpoint to Nell's purity. Annotation. The story of 'Little Nell' gripped the nation when it first appeared. Described as a 'tragedy of sorrows', it tells of Nell uprooted from a secure and innocent childhood and cast into a world where evil takes many shapes, the most fascinating of which is the stunted, lecherous Quilp. He is Nell's tormenter and destroyer, and it is his demonic energy that dominates the book

Jugend. Der geheime Teilhaber. by Joseph Conrad( )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

''Wir sind doch nicht in einer Abenteuergeschichte für Jungen', widersprach ich. Sein spöttisches Flüstern machte mich betroffen. 'Wahrhaftig nicht!'' Dieser Band vereint zwei der unbestrittenen Meistererzählungen von Joseph Conrad. Beide Male geraten die Protagonisten durch unglaubliche Ereignisse in höchste Gefahr und begegnen dabei sich selbst. Ihre Schiffe sind auf See zum Halten gekommen, doch damit beginnt erst eine ganz andere Reise, die Reise des jugendlichen Herzens zu seinen Abgründen und die Entdeckung seiner eigenen Stärke. Es sind Initiationsgeschichten von farbigem Realismus und symbolischer Wahrheit, die hier in glänzenden Übersetzungen neu präsentiert werden. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), eigentlich Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, war polnischer Abkunft, diente bei der französischen, dann bei der englischen Handelsmarine, wurde Kapitän und befuhr bis 1894 die Meere Südamerikas und des Fernen Ostens. Dort spielen viele seiner Romane und Erzählungen, die gleichermassen durch ihre genaue Beobachtungsgabe und ihre psychologische Meisterschaft bestechen
