Das sechste Sterben

Release Date: 2015-03-31
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Sie haben noch nie etwas vom Stummelfußfrosch gehört? Oder vom Sumatra-Nashorn? Gut möglich, dass Sie auch nie von ihnen hören werden, denn sie sind dabei auszusterben. Wir erleben derzeit das sechste sogenannte Massenaussterben: In einem relativ kurzen Zeitraum verschwinden ungewöhnlich viele Arten. Experten gehen davon aus, dass es das verheerendste sein wird, seit vor etwa 65 Millionen Jahren ein Asteroid unter anderem die Dinosaurier auslöschte. Doch dieses Mal kommt die Bedrohung nicht aus dem All, sondern wir tragen die Verantwortung. Wie haben wir Menschen das Massenaussterben herbeigeführt? Wie können wir es beenden? Elizabeth Kolbert spricht mit Geologen, die verschwundene Ozeane erforschen, begleitet Botaniker in die Anden und begibt sich gemeinsam mit Tierschützern auf die Suche nach den letzten Exemplaren gefährdeter Arten. Sie zeigt, wie ernst die Lage ist, und macht uns zu Zeugen der dramatischen Ereignisse auf unserem Planeten.

Der Rabe

Author: Edgar Allan Poe
Publisher: SEVERUS Verlag
ISBN: 9783863476779
Release Date: 2014-03
Genre: Fiction

„Ängstlich in das Dunkel starrend blieb ich stehn, verwundert, harrend ...“ „Der Rabe“ brachte Edgar Allan Poe den Durchbruch als Lyriker. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht zählt bis heute zum unvergänglichen Erbe der Dichtkunst. In 108 Versen schildert er den mitternächtlichen Besuch eines Raben bei einem Verzweifelten, dessen Geliebte Lenore starb. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Elise von Hohenhausen findet sich hier neu interpretiert und illustriert von Marta Monika Czerwinski. Der Name steht für schaurige und düstere Abgründe: Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Wegbereiter des Symbolismus und Meister des subtilen Horrors. Poes Gedichte, Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten zählen zu den großen Werken seiner Zeit.
