Persisches Feuer

das erste Weltreich und der Kampf um den Westen

Author: Tom Holland

Publisher: Klett-Cotta

Page: 463

View: 5085

Der populäre Bestseller aus Großbritannien vom Jungstar der Historikerszene Es geschah vor 2500 Jahren, dass Ost und West Krieg miteinander führten. Im 5. Jahrhundert v. Chr. war eine globale Supermacht fest entschlossen, zwei Staaten Wahrheit und Ordnung zu bringen, die sie für terroristische Schurkenstaaten ansah. Die Supermacht war Persien, dessen Könige das erste Weltreich gegründet hatten. Die terroristischen Staaten waren Athen und Sparta, eigenwillige Städte in einem weit abgelegenen armen und bergigen Land: Griechenland. Die Geschichte, wie die Bürger dieses Landes dem mächtigsten Mann der Welt widerstanden und ihn besiegten, ist eine der beeindruckendsten Episoden der Geschichte. "Persisches Feuer" gibt nicht nur eine dramatische Darstellung dieser großen Auseinandersetzung, sondern auch ein einzigartiges Gesamtbild von Ost und West. Von den Priestern in Babylon bis zur Geheimpolizei der Spartaner, von den Luxusgärten der Perser bis zu den athenischen Prostituierten, von Darius, dem Mörder und größten politischen Genie des Orients bis zu Themistokles, dem Mann, der den Westen rettete, werden alle Akteure in der faszinierenden Erzählung Tom Hollands lebendig. "Erzählte Geschichte vom Feinsten. Ein Buch, das mich wirklich gefesselt hat." Ian McEwan Tom Holland, geboren 1968, studierte in Cambridge und Oxford Geschichte. Der Autor und Journalist hat sich mit BBC-Sendungen über Herodot, Homer, Thukydides und Vergil einen Namen gemacht. Holland lebt mit Frau und zwei Kindern in London. Tom Holland ist Bestseller-Autor für Fiction und Historisches Buch. Er hat zahlreiche Auszeichnungen erhalten, u. a. "Steven-Runciman-Preis für historische Erzählungen" zusammen mit Robin Lane Fox.

Empire of Ancient Greece chronicles the remarkable legacy of the Greeks, as well as the diversity of their societies - from the thriving democracy of Athens to the militarism of Sparta to the oligarchy of Thrace. It explores the conditions that made it possible for the ancient Greeks to develop a culture that set the foundation for our intellectual lives today, and explains why Greek power eventually declined. Connections in our own world to the ancient Greeks are numerous, including the Olympics, much of our classical literature, the scientific method, architecture, and many English words.

Realität, Imagination und Theorie

Category: History

Page: 320

View: 2868

Im Zentrum stehen unveroffentlichte Untersuchungen zum Thema aHomer und Troiao, die beweisen, daa die Ilias keine historische Quelle fuer einen Kampf der mykenischen Griechen gegen Troia darstellt, und deuten das Epos als dichterische Projektion von Problemen der Lebenswelt des Dichters im 7. Jh. in die imaginierte Bronzezeit. Bisher nur verstreut publizierte Studien runden das Bild ab. Weitere unedierte Arbeiten beschaftigen sich mit neuen Erkenntnissen der Neoanalyse und mit der Anwendung narratologischer Theorien auf Epos und Drama der Antike. Im 2. Teil geht es um Realitat und Imagination u.a. in der Prasentation des Dionysos und der Frauenproblematik durch Euripides.

This bilingual edition of Aristophanes’s The Wasps includes an introduction, prose translation, and long-awaited German commentary. A classic work of Attic comedy, The Wasps satirizes developments in Athenian justice and politics via a generational struggle in which the son seeks to re-educate the father. With perfect narrative structure, The Wasps casts a humorous light on the early post-Pericles era in Athens.
