              Shelley: The Poet of Rebellion, Nature, and Love: Large Print (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Waterlow, Sydney

              Waterlow gives a brief, unpretentious account of the life and works of Percy Bysshe Shelley, who is regarded as one of the finest lyric poets of the English language. Not merely a biography of events, this is an analysis of the age in which Shelley lived his almost 30 years (1792...-1822), the character of the young man, and the messages embodied in Shelley's poems. A few quotes: In the case of most great writers our interest in them as persons is derived from our interest in them as writers; we are not very curious about them except for reasons that have something to do with their art. With Shelley it is different. During his life he aroused fears and hatreds, loves and adorations, that were quite irrelevant to literature; and even now, when he has become a classic, he still causes excitement as a man. The object of these pages is not to idealise either his life, his character, or his works. The three are inseparably connected, and to understand one we must understand all. ... he happened to be steeped in philosophical ways of thinking. The forms in which he gave it expression are predominantly melancholy, because this kind of idealism, with its insistence on the unreality of evil, is the recoil from life of an unsatisfied and disappointed soul. His philosophy of love is but a special case of this all-embracing doctrine. Of all his verse, it is these songs about nature and love that every one knows and likes best. And, in fact, many of them seem to satisfy what is perhaps the ultimate test of true poetry: they sometimes have the power, which makes poetry akin to music, of suggesting by means of words something which cannot possibly be expressed in words. Waterlow illustrates his analysis of Shelley with many excerpts from Shelley's poems. If the reader wants to understand Shelley, this book would be a good place to start, even before reading the poetry itself

              The Return of the Native is Thomas Hardy's sixth published novel. It first appeared in the magazine Belgravia, a publication known for its sensationalism, and was presented in twelve monthly installments from January to December 1878. Because of the novel's controversial themes, ...Hardy had some difficulty finding a publisher; reviews, however, though somewhat mixed, were generally positive. In the twentieth century, The Return of the Native became one of Hardy's most popular and highly regarded novels.

              Ensaio sobre o Dever (Ou a Manifestacao da Vontade), de Rute Simoes Ribeiro, e o primeiro romance desta escritora portuguesa e foi uma das cinco obras Finalistas do Premio LeYa 2015, com o titulo que recebeu originalmente, Os Cegos e os Surdos . Com uma escrita e um imaginario fu...ndados em Jose Saramago e Alfred Hitchcock, este livro enquadra-se dificilmente num genero literario, desvinculando-se de limites normativos que pudessem condicionar a narrativa. Refletindo, com grande subtileza, um dos periodos mais conturbados da historia mundial, a autora desenvolve uma teia de personagens e de eventos insolitos, sociologicos e politicos, que o leitor consegue imaginar poder passar-se na atualidade, exibindo um profundo dominio sobre as palavras e um particular sentido de humor. Sinopse: Os cidadaos do mundo inteiro sao chamados a tomar uma decisao por uma entidade desconhecida. Tem de escolher um sentido apenas, a saber, pode ler-se na misteriosa mensagem, visao, audicao, olfacto, tacto, paladar, com exclusao do apelidado sexto sentido, dado que, neste ultimo caso, e o sentido que escolhe o portador, em caso algum podendo ocorrer o inverso. Receando o impacto da escolha livre na organizacao da sociedade, o governo decide obrigar os cidadaos eleitores a escolherem o sentido determinado em conselho de ministros, sob pena de penalizacao no rendimento, chamando as pessoas, em nome da nacao, ao exercicio de um dever colectivo de reorganizacao apos a extraccao dos sentidos. Perante a ordem do governo, os partidos da oposicao apresentam mocoes de censura e os auto-apelidados guerrilheiros da liberdade formam brigadas dos sentidos, ainda que acabando estas por forcar as pessoas a serem livres. Tres personagens principais entrecruzam-se na historia, um primeiro-ministro, um guerrilheiro da liberdade e uma mae, partilhando, de algum modo, sentimentos de dever e de vigilancia constante. Apos a instituicao de novos habitos, ajustados a nova ordem de sentidos, o primeiro-ministro dep
