Oroonoko, or, The royal slave by Aphra Behn( Book )

4 editions published between 1966 and 1981 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aphra Behn's Oroonoko, the story of an African prince's enslavement by British colonists and his journey from West Africa to the Caribbean, is the first literary work in English to portray the global interactions of that interlocking structure that came to be known as "the triangular trade." This edition features a generous selection of thematically organized historical materials that illuminate the three corners of the Atlantic triangle: West Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe. Excerpts from contemporary literary works by Ben Jonson, John Dryden, Richard Steele, and Daniel Defoe enrich our understanding of the literary contexts for Behn's portrayal of "blackness" in Oroonoko, and selections from later dramatizations of Oroonoko demonstrate the evolution of British attitudes toward racial difference in the century following the publication of Behn's work."--Jacket

Fort comme la mort by Guy de Maupassant( Book )

4 editions published between 1955 and 1970 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guy de Maupassant hat einen tiefgründigen Künstlerroman geschrieben: Das Altersschicksal eines begehrten Porträtmalers der Pariser Oberschicht liest sich als psychologische Studie ebenso ergreifend wie als aktuelle Reflexion über die Vergänglichkeit von Jugend, Schönheit und Sinnlichkeit. Jim Avignon, der international bekannte Pop-Art-Künstler, hat den Klassiker in seinem unverwechselbaren bunten und plakativen Stil eindrucksvoll illustriert. Der erfolgreiche Pariser Salonmaler Olivier Bertin ist überzeugter Junggeselle. Seit über zehn Jahren führt er eine in seinen Augen perfekte Affäre mit der verheirateten Gräfin Anne de Guilleroy. Die Abgeordnetengattin ist schön und eine Quelle der Inspiration für den Maler, er hegt ernsthafte Gefühle für sie, entzieht sich jedoch den Verpflichtungen einer Ehe. Was als romantische und leidenschaftliche Affäre begann, ist mittlerweile ein fester und befriedigender Bestandteil seines Lebens geworden. Da nimmt sein bisher so leichtes Leben eine plötzliche Wendung. Nach dreijähriger Abwesenheit kehrt Annes Tochter Annette, mittlerweile 18 Jahre alt und eine junge Dame, in das Elternhaus zurück, um zu heiraten. Annette ist das Ebenbild ihrer Mutter und genau so schön wie diese einst war. Bertin ist zunehmend verwirrt über seine Gefühle für die beiden Frauen. Er beginnt wahrzunehmen, dass er in den letzten Jahren gealtert ist und sehnt sich nach einem beständigen Familienleben. Anne wird durch ihre Tochter ebenfalls mit ihrer eigenen Vergänglichkeit konfrontiert und erkennt schon bald, dass sie gegen die junge Frau keine Chance hat. Maupassants 1889 erschienener Roman ist eine zeitlose und ergreifende Liebesgeschichte über die Vergänglichkeit von Jugend, Schönheit und Begehren. Jim Avignon hat das Buch illustriert. Seit Jahren ist er einer der erfolgreichsten deutschen Pop-Art-Künstler: Neben vielen anderen Projekten hat er ein Stück der Berliner Mauer und ein Flugzeug bemalt, eine Swatch-Uhr gestaltet und zur Wiedereröffnung des Berliner Olympiastadions ein 2.800 m² großes Bild gemalt. Avignons Stil ist unverwechselbar, seine Bilder sind bunt, plakativ, expressionistisch reduziert. Damit unterstreicht er das Zeitlose an Maupassants Roman über die Vergänglichkeit des Menschen
