Reading Latin

Author: Peter Jones
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316301173
Release Date: 2016-10-18
Genre: Foreign Language Study

Reading Latin, first published in 1986, is a bestselling Latin course designed to help mature beginners read classical Latin fluently and intelligently. It does this in three ways: it encourages the reading of continuous texts from the start; it offers generous help with translation at every stage; and it integrates the learning of classical Latin with an appreciation of the influence of the Latin language upon English and European culture from antiquity to the present. The Text and Vocabulary, richly illustrated, consists at the start of carefully graded adaptations from original classical Latin texts. The adaptations are gradually phased out until unadulterated prose and verse can be read. The accompanying Grammar and Exercises volume completes the course, although the present volume could be used as a self-standing beginner's reader if desired. This second edition has been fully revised and updated, with a new chapter containing stories from early Roman history.

Blumen f r Algernon

Author: Daniel Keyes

Release Date: 2016-10-14
Genre: Fiction

Die spannende und erschütternde Geschichte des geistig zurückgebliebenen Charlie Gordon, der durch eine Operation eine überragende Intelligenz erlangt, gehört zu den erfolgreichsten Klassikern der Science-fiction. Der mehrfach preisgekrönte Roman ist in 27 Sprachen übersetzt, millionenfach verkauft und gelesen und unter dem Titel »Charly« verfilmt. Charlie Gordon, ursprünglich kaum des Lesens mächtig, ist zu Forschungszwecken operiert worden und entwickelt eine überragende Intelligenz; schließlich überflügelt er intellektuell und fachlich sogar die Professoren, die das Experiment leiten. Zu seinen Freunden zählt die Maus Algernon - das erste Lebewesen, das mit derselben Methode erfolgreich behandelt wurde. Mit den überwältigenden Fähigkeiten stellen sich für das Genie Charlie jedoch auch die ersten Probleme ein - in der Bäckerei, in der er früher arbeitete, mit seiner Familie, von der er jetzt entdeckt, daß sie ihn nie akzeptiert hat, und im Umgang mit dem weiblichen Geschlecht, vor dem er unerklärliche Angst hat. Als Charlie auf einem Fachkongreß als Attraktion vorgeführt werden soll, flieht er zusammen mit Algernon. Kurze Zeit später zeigen sich im Verhalten der Maus erste Verfallserscheinungen ... Charlies Aufzeichnungen für das Forscherteam geben dem Leser einen atemberaubenden Einblick in seine geistige Entwicklung und das Drama seiner Existenz. Die seit vielen Jahren nicht mehr lieferbaren früheren deutschsprachigen Ausgaben erschienen unter dem Titel »Charly«.
