Life, Death and Myth

Paragon of youthful beauty, romantic symbol of a lost England, and precociously gifted poet, Rupert Chawner Brooke died in a hospital ship off the Aegean island of Skyros in April 1915, aged just 27. All England mourned his passing. But behind the glow of myth lies a darker reality. At the height of his promise a disappointment in love triggered a mental and physical collapse that brought his inner complexities to the surface. Letters reveal a man who was sexually ambivalent, misogynistic, anti-Semitic – and sometimes alarmingly unstable. This revised edition of Nigel Jones's admired biography, including an account of a previously unknown affair of Brooke's, reveals a more conflicted and troubled individual than the gilded Adonis of English literary myth.

Peace and War

Britain in 1914

Author: Nigel Jones

Publisher: Head of Zeus

1914 dawned with Britain at peace, albeit troubled by faultlines within and threats without: Ireland trembled on the brink of civil war; suffragette agitation was assuming an ever more violent hue; and suspicions of Germany's ambitions bred a paranoia that was expressed in a rash of 'invasion scare' literature. Then when shots rang out in Sara-jevo on 28 June, they set in train a tumble of diplomatic dominos that led to Britain declaring war on Germany. Nigel Jones depicts every facet of a year that changed Britain for ever. From gun-running in Ulster to an attack by suffragettes on a Velasquez painting in the National Gallery; from the launch of HMHS Britannic to cricketer J.T. Hearne's 3000th first-class wicket; from the opening of London's first nightclub to the embarking for Belgium of the BEF, he traces the events of a momentous year from its benign domestic beginnings to its descent into the nightmare of European war. Please note: This ebook is hand-crafted. Well not quite, but it is certainly a cut above the rest; great care has been taken to make sure it is both beautiful and highly functional.

Die Entdeckung eines Autors: J. G. Farrell zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache 1919: Major Brendan Archer, nach dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs aus der englischen Armee entlassen, reist an die irische Ostküste, um seine Verlobte zu heiraten. Das Wiedersehen mit der Tochter des Besitzers des Hotels Majestic verläuft allerdings gänzlich anders als erhofft, zumal die Verlobte bald darauf verstirbt. In der Zwischenzeit aber hat sich der Major bereits auf die verbliebene Schar von Katzen, skurrilen Dienern und Bewohnern eingelassen und wird immer tiefer in den Sog des Verfalls des riesigen ehemaligen Prachthotels und seines polternden Besitzers Edward Spencer hineingezogen. Die brillante, von absurdem Humor durchzogene Erzählung spielt vor dem Hintergrund der entscheidenden Jahre Irlands auf dem Weg zur Teilung des Landes. Die unerschöpflichen Facetten dieses jahrhundertealten Konflikts spiegeln sich wider in den verschiedenen Standpunkten der sehr lebensnah gezeichneten Figuren. Posthum mit dem Man Booker Prize ausgezeichnet, bietet sich nun auch dem deutschen Leser die Gelegenheit zur Begegnung mit einem vollendeten Stilisten und großen Erzähler.
