              David Morrissey (The Walking Dead) and Kelly Reilly (True Detective) star in an epic and cinematic new nine-part drama from award-winning writer Jez Butterworth (Spectre, Jerusalem). Sky's most ambitious drama ever, it's packed with action and emotion and is produced by Vertigo F...ilms (Bronson, Monsters) and Neal Street Productions (Penny Dreadful, Call the Midwife). When the Romans invade Britain in 43AD, Kerra (Reilly), daughter of the King of the Cantii, is forced to put her differences aside with arch-rival Queen Antedia (Wanamaker) to face their invaders. The Romans, led by General Aulus Plautius (Morrissey), are determined to succeed where Julius Caesar failed and conquer this mythical land at the far edge of the Roman Empire. Aulus is a strong and resilient leader, but harbours a deep secret that threatens his mission. As tribes and Druids unite to fight the Romans, Kerra is thrust into the most important role of her life as she spearheads the resistance against the might of the Roman army.

              The Ocean Bards: British Poetry and the War at Sea, 1793-1815
               

              The Ocean Bards: British Poetry and the War at Sea, 1793-1815 (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New edition)

              Long before Patrick O'Brian's and C. S. Forester's novels of the great age of combat sail, a vast popular poetry abounded in Britain about the war at sea against the French Revolution and Napoleonic Empire. This book tells the story of how that poetry, with its sailors and admira...ls as folk heroes, became a driving force for morale, national identity and patriotism that would flourish until 1918. Focusing on the sea poetry of Britain during that twenty-two year war, 1793-1815, the book shows how heretofore overlooked invasion poems, sea battle ballads, victory odes, seascapes and sailors' elegies are crucial to a full understanding of literary, naval, and social history during the era of Nelson and Romanticism. The author opens a straight channel to link literary and military readerships and lays an important plank in the bridge of war literature arching from Homer to Hemingway.

              Diese Arbeit zur schwarzen Romantik als Phanomen der europaischen Literatur- und Geistesgeschichte versammelt Studien, welche die Gesamtbewegung an englischen und auch deutschen Beispielen diskutieren. Dabei entstehen Zugange zur bedeutenden dusteren Dimension der Romantik, die b...is heute multimedial lebendig geblieben ist. Schwarze Romantik mitsamt ihrer Relativierung aller eng gefuhrten Formen von Rationalismus und Empirismus setzt das Vermogen der Imagination in das Zentrum von Denken und Gestalten: sie entdeckt die Vorstellungs- und Wunschwelten in den -Hinterraumen- des Ich und begibt sich uber die erneute Aneignung des Mythos auf die Suche nach einem umfassenden Bild des Menschen in einer Welt zwischen Nicht-Mehr und Noch-Nicht.
