Dette er en dansk litteraturhistorie, men det særlige er, at den ser sit emne fra så højt et fugleperspektiv, at detaljerne forsvinder og hovedkonturen - hovedsporet - træder frem. I én bog på 700 sider når vi fra Vølvens spådom og de islandske sagaer over Kingo, Holberg, Oehlenschläger og Hauch til Brandes, Blixen, Brøgger og Guldager. Arbejdsgruppen bag Hovedsporet - Jens Anker Jørgensen, Johnny Kondrup, Peter Olivarius, Bjarne Sandstrøm, Svend Skriver, Marianne Stidsen og Knud Wentzel - har skåret en principielt grænseløs historie ned til en stor, spændende fortælling om dansk litteratur.Denne e-bogsudgave er uden illustrationer.
“Hvad skal jeg læse på min næste rejse?” Det er spørgsmålet Turen går til bøgernes Verden svarer på. Bogen indeholder omtaler af skønlitteratur og rejsebeskrivelser fra en række populære og mindre populære destinationer. Det er berigende at opleve destinationen gennem bøger, der udspiller sig netop dér, hvor man befinder sig. Litteratur lægger nye dimensioner til oplevelsen af rejsemålet, fra Paul Austers New York til Orhan Pamuks Istanbul. En anderledes guidebog, der stimulerer lysten til at rejse – og til at læse. TUREN GÅR TIL har eksisteret siden 1952 og er blandt verdens hyppigst opdaterede rejsebogsserier. Serien dækker hele verden fra Nordatlanten til Australien. Bøgerne skrives på dansk af forfattere og journalister med et særligt indgående kendskab til de enkelte destinationer. Med nøje udvalgte attraktioner, herunder spisesteder, viser vi vej til de største oplevelser.

A major new examination of how J.R.R.Tolkien came to write his original masterpiece 'The Hobbit', including his complete unpublished draft version of the story, and many little-known illustrations and previously unpublished maps by Tolkien himself.For the first time in one volume, The History of the Hobbit presents the complete unpublished text of the original manuscript of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Hobbit, accompanied by John Rateliff's lively and informative account of how the book came to be written and published. As well as recording the numerous changes made to the story both before and after publication, it examines - chapter-by-chapter - why those changes were made and how they reflect Tolkien's ever-growing concept of Middle-earth.The Hobbit was first published on 21 September 1937. Like its successor, The Lord of the Rings, it is a story that "e;grew in the telling"e;, and many characters and story threads in the published text are completely different from what Tolkien first wrote to read aloud to his young sons as part of their "e;fireside reads"e;.As well as reproducing the original version of one of literature's most famous stories, both on its own merits and as the foundation for The Lord of the Rings, this new book includes many little-known illustrations and previously unpublished maps for The Hobbit by Tolkien himself. Also featured are extensive annotations and commentaries on the date of composition, how Tolkien's professional and early mythological writings influenced the story, the imaginary geography he created, and how Tolkien came to revise the book years after publication to accommodate events in The Lord of the Rings.Like Christopher Tolkien's The History of The Lord of the Rings before it, this is a thoughtful yet exhaustive examination of one of the most treasured stories in English literature. Long overdue for a classic book now celebrating 75 years in print, this companion edition offers fascinating new insights for those who have grown up with this enchanting tale, and will delight those who are about to enter Bilbo's round door for the first time.
Marcel Proust (1871-1922) er en af det tyvende århundredes mest indflydelsesrige forfattere. Han, der var både rig og feteret, og så let som ingenting kunne have gjort livet bekvemt for sig selv, ofrede sig fuldkommen for sit romanværk À la recherche du temps perdu (1913-27).Med denne bog får man for første gang mulighed for at læse om Proust i Danmark – gennem 100 år – og en enestående introduktion til forfatteren og værket.Proust i Danmark byder på et stykke dansk litteraturhistorie om modtagelsen af Proust og hans roman. Her er desuden oversættelseshistorien og beskrivelser af de danske anmelderes, kritikeres, skønlitterære forfatteres og forskeres forhold til Proust – fra Christian Rimestad over Jacob Paludan og Margrethe Møller til Søren Ulrik Thomsen, Jens Christian Grøndahl, Henning Goldbæk, Bjørn Bredal, Kirsten Thorup og Suzanne Brøgger. Dette er 2. stærkt reviderede udgave – med N.A.C. Things afhandling I dialog med Proust (Lunds Universitet, 2015) indlejret. Det bibringer læseren indsigt i det forskningsmæssige grundlag for den passionerede receptionsundersøgelse.
Mikkel Fønsskov og Anders Magelund har interviewet ni af landets absolutte topledere og en kendt og elsket forfatter. Resultatet er en inspirerende bog, der ikke alene stimulerer læselysten, men også blotlægger, hvorfor læsning af skønlitteratur er det mentale brændstof, som driver disse ledere.I Hvem er bange for Moby Dick? hører vi fra lederne selv, hvorfor de til hver en tid hellere læser en god roman end en ledelsesbog – hvordan det styrker deres empati, gør dem bedre til at kommunikere og motivere, og hvordan skønlitteratur lærer dem at træde i karakter.Det er de gode historier, der gør dem klogere på værdier, trends, og hvad der egentlig driver mennesker og medarbejdere, og på hvordan man leder gennem store transformationer og forløser potentialer. Hvem skulle have troet, at nogle af Danmarks vigtiste topledere baserer deres lederskab på Karen Blixen, John Steinbeck og Henrik Pontoppidan?Samtalepartnere:Knud Bartels, Marianne Dahl, Mette Frederiksen, Christian Jensen, Morten Hesseldahl, Hanne-Vibeke Holst, Henrik Mulvad, André Rogaczewski, Sine Sunesen og Margrethe Vestager

Latin American Literature in Transition 1930-1980 explores the literary landscape of the mid-twentieth-century and the texts that were produced during that period. It takes four core areas of thematic and conceptual focus - solidarity, aesthetics and innovation, war, revolution and dictatorship, metropolis and ruins - and employs them to explore the complexity, heterogeneity and hybridity of form, genre, subject matter and discipline that characterised literature from the period. In doing so, it uncovers the points of transition, connection, contradiction, and tension that shaped the work of many canonical and non-canonical authors. It illuminates the conversations between genres, literary movements, disciplines and modes of representation that underpin writing form this period. Lastly, by focusing on canon and beyond, the volume visibilizes the aesthetics, poetics, politics, and social projects of writing, incorporating established writers, but also writers whose work is yet to be examined in all its complexity.
Latin American Literature in Transition 1800-1870 uses affect as an analytical tool to uncover the countervailing forces that shaped Latin American literatures and cultures during the first six decades of the nineteenth century. Chapters provide perspectives on colonial violence and its representation, on the development of the national idea, on communities within and beyond the nation, and on the intersectional development of subjectivity during and after processes of cultural and political independence. This volume includes interdisciplinary approaches to nineteenth-century Latin American cultures that range from visual and art history to historiography to comparative literature and the study of literary and popular print culture. This book engages with the complex and sometimes counterintuitive relationship between felt ideas of community and the political changes that shaped these affective networks and communities.
A TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR 'A small masterpiece. There is something funny, notable or awe-inspiring on every single page' Jenny Colgan, SpectatorA joyful celebration of books the perfect gift for bibliophiles, word lovers and anyone who's ever wondered, should you judge a book by its cover?

Join Penguin publishing word wizard Louise Willder five thousand blurbs written, mostly avoiding the phrase ';unputdownable tour-de-force' to discover why we should judge a book by its cover.
