Bøger af Bernard Cornwell

Bernard Cornwell (f. 1944) blev født i London. Han var et krigsbarn med canadisk far og engelsk mor, og efter sin fødsel blev han bortadopteret til en adoptivfamilie i Essex. Familien var medlemmer af sekten Peculiar People. Cornwell forlod sekten for at studere på universitetet i London. Efter at have arbejdet som lærer, fik han arbejde ved BBC Television, hvor han arbejdede i 10 år. Han startede ved BBC som researcher og efter 10 år var han Head of Current Affairs Television for afdelingen i Nordirland. Det var da han arbejdede i Belfast, at Bernard Cornwell mødte og forelskede sig i amerikanske Judy. Da Judy ikke kunne flytte til Storbritannien, og Bernard ikke kunne få et indflytningstilladelse i USA, så det mørkt ud for parret, men det fandt han en løsning på: at blive forfatter. Som forfatter behøver man nemlig ikke en arbejdstilladelse. Parret blev gift i 1980 og bor stadig i USA. Tanken om at skrive en britisk soldats oplevelser i Napoleonkrigene havde strejfet ham tidligere og pludselig var serien om Sharpe en virkelighed. Han har siden skrevet en række populære serier – bogserien ’Saksernes fortællinger’ er f.eks. blevet adapteret til TV serien The Last Kingdom – ligesom han også har skrevet en række enkeltstående bøger. Bernard Cornwell har beskrevet starten på sin forfatterkarriere som ren desperation, men i dag, mere end 30 år senere, har han på solgt over 20 millioner eksemplarer i verden. Han er kendt som en af verdens bedste forfattere af historiske romaner, og han har modtaget en OBE for sine bedrifter.

    1820s Britain: after the wars with France, when unemployment was high and soldiers could be paid off, when the government was desperately afraid of social unrest, any crime was drastically punished and thousands were hung. But one could petition the King and an investigation might ensue...The man in the dark cell in Newgate Prison was due to hang in a week. He had been found guilty of murdering the aristocrat whose portrait he was painting. He claimed to be innocent - but then the hangman had never hung a guilty man, he said. But even in 1820, the Home Secretary could occasionally use his powers to grant mercy if his investigator found cause and Rider Sandman, once of the First Foot Guards, is given the job.Rider Sandman, a hero of Waterloo, has family debts to repay but when his first steps in the investigations produce a sizeable bribe to look the other way, this only arouses his smouldering anger over the condition of England, a country which he and others in Wellington's army had fought to preserve. Stepping between gentlemen's clubs and taverns, talking to aristocrats, fashionable painters, their models, and their mistresses, dodging professional cut-throats and deceptive swordsmen, Sandman uncovers a conspiracy of silence, a group whose proudest boast was that they would do anything for any one of them.Sandman is a wonderful character, as yet undaunted by the sleazy streets, dank jails or the looming scaffold, and uncorrupted by politicians, sneering gentlemen or frightening bruisers, an investigator in the making and a brilliant, but very different, hero for all Bernard Cornwell fans.

    A unique novel, looking at one the greatest battles, a battle that was a turning point in history, from many points of view, by a master storyteller.Bernard Cornwell has been thinking about this subject for years. He has long wanted to write a book about a single battle, the events that lead up to it, the actual days in the battle and the aftermath from multiple viewpoints.Agincourt, fought on October 25th 1415, on St Crispin's Day, is one of the best known battles, in part through the brilliant depiction of it in Shakespeare's Henry V, in part because it was a brilliant and unexpected English victory and in part because it was the first battle won by the use of the longbow. This was a weapon developed in this form only by the English - parishes were forced to train boys from as young as eight daily - and enabled them to dominate the European battlefields for the rest of the century.Lively historical characters abound on all sides but in Bernard Cornwell's hands the fictional characters, horsemen, archers, nobles, peasants are authentic and vivid, and the hour by hour view of the battle is dramatic and gripping.

    Vi er nået til år 878, hvor romanens hovedperson Uhtred, der er sakser af fødsel, men opfostret af danske vikinger, har begivet sig mod de nordliggende kongeriger i England for at vinde sin barndoms borg og titel tilbage – og for at bekæmpe sine to barndomsfjender Kjartan den Grusomme og Sven den Enøjede. På sin færd lykkes det ham at befri trællen Guthred, der kalder sig selv Konge af Northumbrien. Uhtred fatter sympati for Guthred og kan se fordelene ved at alliere sig med ham, så de to drager sammen videre mod nord, mens de forsøger at stable en hær på benene. Uhtred forelsker sig glødende i Guthreds søster Gisela, men Guthred fører sin ven bag lyset, og sælger Uhtred til trældom til gengæld for en fredsalliance med Uhtreds onkel Ælfric. Pludselig befinder Uhtred sig som om bord på et dansk handelsskib, der bringer ham til Jylland. Efter flere års trældom bliver Uhtred imidlertid befriet – af sin danske fosterbroder Jarl Ragnar den Yngre, der har været Kong Alfred den Stores gidsel i årevis, og som nu er blevet lovet sin frihed mod at finde Uhtred og bringe ham til Kong Alfred. Jarl Ragnar og Uhtred sendes mod nord – officielt for at indgå alliancer med kongerne der, uofficielt for at bekrige dem. Snart står Uhtred og Jarl Ragnar ved fæstningen Dunholm, bag hvis mure Kjartan den Grusomme opholder sig. Og så tager et blodigt angreb på de to fosterbrødres fælles fjende sin begyndelse.Nordens herrer er bind 3 i serien om Saksernes fortællinger 1: Det sidste kongerige, 2: Den danske rytter, 3: Nordens herrer, 4: Sværdsang, 5: Det brændende land."Det er en af den slags bøger, man flyver igennem [...] for straks at læse den én gang til, langsomt."– Anne Knudsen, Weekendavisen

    Nicholas Hook er en engelsk bueskytte, der tilsyneladende bliver tiltrukket af ballade, hvor end han går. Nicholas Hooks herre sender ham til London, men hans stædige og selvrådige opførsel leder ham til begivenheder, der ender med, at han bliver gjort fredløs. Nicholas Hook tager over Kanalen og bliver en del af de engelske lejetropper, der beskytter Soisson imod franskmændene. Belejringen af Soisson ryster Europa i dets grundvold og driver Nicholas Hook tilbage til England, hvor han bliver indskrevet som bueskytte i Henrik V‘s hær under den berygtede Sir John Cornwaille. Hæren er uovertruffen, men sygdom og den uventede franske modstand i Harfleur har reduceret den, og kaos og forvirring hersker. Henrik V nægter stædigt at acceptere sit nederlag og leder i forfærdeligt vejr sine formindskede styrker til det, alle forventer, vil blive den uundgåelige katastrofe.Azincourt er et af de mest kendte slag i verdenshistorien. Det blev udkæmpet mellem to meget ulige hære, som tørnede sammen under barske vilkår på Sankt Crispins dag 1415. Det endte med en ekstraordinær sejr, som er blevet fejret i England, længe før Shakespeare skrev Henrik V. Bernard Cornwell har længe ønsket at skrive beretningen om dette slag og skildre virkeligheden bag myterne.

    Året er 892, og Kong Alfred af Wessex er ved meget dårligt helbred. Hans tronarving, Edward, er fast besluttet på at fremstå som en stærk tronarving, men inderst inde er han fuld af frygt. Det får Danskerne til at lugte sejr, og Harald Blodhår sætter sejl mod England med over to hundrede skibe fyldt med sultne Vikinger. Men Uhtred viser sit værd og får narret Harald, og Vikingerne lider et af deres største nederlag. For Uhtred bliver sejrens sødme hurtigt overskygget, da han i raseri brækker nakken på broder Godwin. Kong Alfred forlanger, at Uhtred som bod skal aflægge troskabsed til Edward, men det nægter Uhtred og slutter sig i stedet til Vikingerne. Men igen spiller skæbnen Uhtred et puds, for da det rygtes, at Danskerne og vikingerne pønser på at erobre hele England, bliver Uhtred kontaktet af Æthelflaed, der trygler ham om hjælp."Det er en fantastisk velfortalt krønike, og der er alle muligheder for, at læserne kan se hele filmen på det indre lærred. Man kan fornemme, føle og opleve med Uthred. At man ved siden af en læseoplevelse af den mere sublime slags også bliver klogere på vores forfædre, de smarte fyre, der kunne bygge skibe, sejle dem og flytte ind og klare sig på den anden side af Nordsøen, det er ikke så ringe endda!" - LitteratursidenBernard Cornwell (f. 1944) er af Washington Post blevet kaldt en af nutidens største forfattere af historiske romaner.

    Sjette bog i vikingeserien om Uhtred og sakserne.Omkring år 900 i et England, der består af nogle mindre kongedømmer og er på randen af kaos, får Uhtred en hovedrolle i et kompliceret magtspil. Kong Alfred af Wessex ligger for døden, hvilket truer freden, for mens Alfred ønsker at se sin søn Edward som ny konge, mener andre, at de er retmæssig arving til tronen. Blandt andet ser vikingerne en mulighed for at få mere magt. Uhtreds loyalitet er rettet mod Alfred, ikke hans søn, og på trods af sin årelange troskab kæmper han stadig ikke saksernes sag. Hans eget ønske er at generobre sine tabte landområder og slottet mod nord. Uhtred accepterer dog, da han af Alfred får til opgave at lave fredsaftaler med de forskellige herskere og vikingeledere og samle landet til et forenet kristent England. Men det skal snart vise sig, at det bliver svært at forhandle, når alliancerne er bundrådne, og der oven i købet er nogen, der vil Uhtred til livs. "CORNWELL skriver en dejlig, klichéfri prosa, og her i det sjette bind af sagaen om Englands fødsel i 900-tallets begyndelse er de storpolitiske intriger og den psykologiske skildring lige raffinerede." - Anne Knudsen, Weekendavisen.

    În inima Angliei elisabetane, tânarul Richard Shakespeare viseaza la o cariera stralucitoare în arenele pentru spectacole londoneze, dominate de fratele sau mai mare, William. Însa recunostinta lui Richard, actor fara un sfant, dar iscusit la vorba, începe sa paleasca, la fel si loialitatea fata de familie. Astfel, când doua manuscrise nepretuite dispar, suspiciunea cade asupra lui Richard. Miza obtinerii unui rol principal într-una din piese îl determina pe acesta sa cutreiere prin cotloanele cele mai întunecate ale orasului în cautarea manuscriselor. Într-un tur de forta plin de suspans si savoare, Nebuni si muritori îsi atrage cititorul într-o sarabanda de intrigi, scandaluri si rivalitati din lumea Londrei elisabetane, înfatisate cu maiestrie de Bernard Cornwell. „Cu darul lui recunoscut de a reînvia istoria, Bernard Cornwell îi poarta pe cititori în arenele pentru spectacole, pe strazile laturalnice si printre palatele din Londra lui Shakespeare, într-un roman plin de profunzime si de compasiune.“ Philippa Gregory „Cornwell este un dramaturg amator entuziast. Felul în care portretizeaza actorii, cu rivalitatile si superstitiile lor, este sclipitor si deseori amuzant. Combinatia sa de inteligenta, spirit de aventura si abilitate în construirea personajelor face ca aceasta carte sa marcheze desprinderea cu succes a autorului de tiparele obisnuite ale romanului istoric.“ The Times

    Otono de 1777. Un ao despus de la Declaracin de Independencia americana, Filadelfia, la capital de las colonias rebeldes, que est a punto de ser ocupada por las tropas britnicas del general Howe, es una ciudad en guerra: no solo entre los insurgentes americanos y el ejrcito britnico, sino tambin entre sus propios habitantes; una guerra que divide y desgarra familias y que engendra todo tipo de traiciones. En primera lnea de la batalla, entre las mortferas armas del enemigo y las pualadas de sus propios polticos, estn los casacas rojas. Para un britnico, estos valientes son el martillo que aplastar la incipiente rebelin yanqui. En cambio, para los patriotas americanos, los despreciados "e;espaldas sangrientas"e; son los ladrones de su libertad y los saqueadores de su patrimonio. Sam Gilpin es uno de ellos: ha visto morir a su hermano y ahora debe elegir entre el deber a un rey distante, el llamamiento de su propia conciencia y el verdadero significado de la lealtad. Ese invierno, no solo a travs de los campos de hielo y fuego de Valley Forge, el olor a plvora de Germantown y el tronar de los caones sobre Fort Mifflin, sino tambin en los lujosos salones de Filadelfia, se reescribir la Historia y cambiar la fortuna de rebeldes y patriotas para siempre.
