Out of This World
18,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Designed as an offshoot from the legendary Armchair Theatre, Out of this World was devised by television colossus Sydney Newman (Doctor Who, The Avengers) and Irene Shubik (The Wednesday Play, Rumpole of the Bailey) in 1962 to present the science fiction genre at its intelligent best to an adult audience. An anthology series produced by Leonard White, dramatising the cream of literary science fiction, from such writers as Isaac Asimov, Clifford Simak and Philip K. Dick, and using the considerable scriptwriting talents of Clive Exton, Leon Griffiths and Terry Nation, the show was a tremendous success, paving the way for Irene Shubik’s later classic series Out of the Unknown. Hosted by veteran actor Boris Karloff, each episode explored every aspect of the genre – from satire to suspense, from tense drama to sparkling comedy, with the greatest flair and invention that Sixties television could provide. This long awaited release presents the only surviving episode, an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Little Lost Robot, with Maxine Audley as the formidable ‘robopsychologist’ Susan Calvin. Also included are two audio recordings of otherwise lost episodes – Impostor By Philip K Dick, dramatised by Terry Nation who devised the Daleks for Doctor Who the following year, and Cold Equations, Tom Godwin’s suspenseful tale featuring a very young Jane Asher, the impeccable Peter Wyngarde and a screenplay by Clive Exton. Exton’s script for John Wyndhams’ The Dumb Martian, which heralded the series, is also included to download. Extras: Digitally remastered presentation of Little Lost Robot Cold Equations (Paul Bernard, 1962, audio only): adaptation of a short story by Tom Godwin Impostor (Peter Hammond, 1962, audio only): Terry Nation’s adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story Dumb Martian (1962): downloadable PDF of the script for this lost episode, adapted from a story by John Wyndham Illustrated booklet with essay by Oliver Wake, and full credits Cast and Crew: Hosted by Boris Karloff (Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein). Based on the work of Isaac Asimov. Created by Irene Shubik (Out of the Unknown, Armchair Theatre).

London, 1786. Lord Henri-Antoine has returned from the Grand Tour to a life of privilege and excess. A vast inheritance allows him every indulgence, free from responsibility.

Simon Peter - Sifted as Wheat: Book 18 , Hörbuc...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Simon Peter - Sifted as Wheat examines the sad episode of Peter's denial of the Lord. "Simon, Simon," the Lord says, "behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat; but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not; and when thou art converted (restored), strengthen thy brethren." Simon got his warning here; if he had only taken heed of it, what a different sequel would have been recorded! If he had only been chaff and not really wheat, Satan would not have wanted to sift him. It was because he was the real wheat that Satan desired to get him in his power. Satan does not tempt an unconverted person; he tempts a child of God. But he governs and controls entirely the unconverted - drives them before him at his will. When Jesus was arrested "they all forsook Him and fled". Afterward we see Peter following "afar off", and then again we see him in the high priest's hall, where there was a fire, and he warms himself by it. What steps we see in Peter's downward course, leading to his denial of the Lord he loved! First, declaring he was ready to die for him, although the Lord had just told him that Satan was desiring to have him, and that he was praying for Peter. Next, he was sleeping when he should have been watching, then fighting when he should have been quiet, then following afar off when he should have been near, and finally sitting down with the enemies of Christ and warming himself. With such a prelude one can only expect what followed - Peter denied with oaths and cursings that he had ever known the Lord. The only path of safety therefore is found in keeping as near to the Lord as we can and as far away as possible from all the saviors of the world. The moral lessons for each of us from this sad episode in Peter's history are many and plain. It should teach us to walk softly, prayerfully, and ever keep near to the Lord. 1. Language: English.

Yarn Market, Dunster
34,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Yarn Market in Dunster, Somerset, England was built around 1590 and has been desinated as a Grade I listed building and scheduled ancient monument. The octagonal structure has a central stone pier which supports a heavy timber framework which carries a slate roof with central wooden lantern surmounted by a weather vane. Dunster had become a centre for woollen and clothing production by the 13th century, with the market dating back to at least 1222, and a particular kind of kersey or broadcloth became known as ''Dunsters''. Around 1590 George Luttrell, of the Luttrell family constructed the market to shelter traders and their wares from the rain. One of the roof beams has a hole in it, a result of cannon fire in the Civil War, when Dunster Castle was a besieged Royalist stronghold for five months under the command of Colonel Wyndham. Following the damage, it was restored in 1647 to its present condition.

A Genealogy of Modernism
58,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Geneology of Modernism is a study of literary transition in the first two decades of this century, a period of extraordinary ferment and great accomplishment, during which the avant-garde gradually consolidated a secure place within English culture. Michael Levenson analyses that complex process by following the successive phases of a literary movement - Impressionist, Imagist, Vorticist, Classicist - as it attempted to formulate the principles on which a new aesthetic might be founded. The emphasis here falls on the ideology of modernism, but throughout the book the ideological question is tied on the one hand to specific literary works and on the other to general movements in philosophy and the fine arts. The major figures under discussion, Joseph Conrad, Ford Madox Ford, Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, and T. S. Elliot, are placed in relation to thinkers who have been largely neglected in the history of modernism: Max Stirner, Wilhelm Worringer, Pierre Lasserre, Allen Upward, and Hilaire Belloc. Levenson thus situates the emergence of a modernist aesthetic within the context of literary theory, literary practice, and cultural history.

Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, and Radical Modernism
135,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ezra Pound and Wyndham Lewis developed a highly experimental art; they were attracted simultaneously to political programs remarkably backward in outlook--the autocracies of Fascist Italy and Germany. That paradox, central to the problematic achievement of Anglo-American modernism, is freshly addressed in this study. Here Sherry examines the influence of music and painting on literature, presents original research on European intellectual history, and proposes a new understanding of ideology as a force in the literary imagination. Following the example of continental ideologues, the English modernists use the material of aesthetic experience to prove truths of human nature, making art the basis for social values and recommendations. This sensibility enriches their work, shaping the varied textures of Pound's Cantos and the complex designs of Lewis's painting and fiction, but their mastery of avant-garde techniques endorses the authority of an antique state. Sherry returns their 'totalitarian synthesis' of art and politics to its originating moment, following its trajectory from 1910 to the eve of World War II.
