Edizione specifica per kindle con 67 illustrazioni, mappa del viaggio e indice navigabile. Tre uomini in barca (senza contare il cane) o, in altre traduzioni, Tre uomini in barca (per non parlar del cane) oppure Tre uomini in barca (per tacer del cane) è un romanzo di Jerome K. Jerome del 1889, è un romanzo umoristico ed considerato uno dei più importanti classici della letteratura inglese. Il romanzo narra la avventure di tre amici Jerome, Harris (l'uomo più prosaico della terra) e George (che «va a dormire in una banca tutti i giorni dalle 10 alle 16, tranne il sabato che lo cacciano fuori alle 14»), che assieme al fedele cane Montmorency, viaggiano per giorni sulla loro imbarcazione, risalendo la corrente del fiume Tamigi, scorrendo lungo le campagne inglesi, e vivendo sempre nuove e inattese avventure che strappano risate di continuo. Il viaggio è costellato da una serie di gag comiche sulle gioie e sui dolori della vita in barca (quali le peripezie sul trasporto delle vivande, la costruzione della tenda sulla barca, i pericoli di cadute in acqua), unite a divertenti divagazioni che costituiscono storie a sé stanti, nel miglior stile dello humour inglese: celeberrimo è il racconto dello zio Podger alle prese con un quadro da appendere. Il tutto condito da descrizioni realistiche delle regioni attraversate dalla simpatica brigata e brevi notazioni di filosofia per non addetti ai lavori. La traduzione si basa sull'edizione del 1922 curata da Silvio Spaventa Filippi, ma è stata aggiornata all'italiano corrente dal redattore preservando lo stile dell'epoca in cui è stato scritto. Il testo è completo e si riferisce all'edizione del 1899 ed è arricchito da 67disegni originali di A. Frederics e della mappa del viaggio. Jerome K. Jerome (Walsall, 2 maggio 1859 – Northampton, 14 giugno 1927) è stato uno scrittore, giornalista e umorista britannico. È ritenuto tra i maggiori scrittori umoristici inglesi. Lontano dai modi della farsa, del facile gioco di parole, dell'allusione oscena, il suo umorismo scaturiva anche dall'osservazione dalle situazioni più comuni e quotidiane. § Se sei interessato ad imparare o migliorare il tuo inglese o il tuo italiano, cerca l'edizione bilingue curata da Wirton Arvel.

Little Novels of Sicily "Novelle Rusticane" Giovanni Verga translated by D. H. Lawrence Giovanni Verga, the Sicilian novelist and playwright, is surely the greatest writer of Italian fiction, after Manzoni. Verga was born in Catania, Sicily, in 1840, and died in the same city, at the age of eighty-two, in January, 1922. As a young man he left Sicily to work at literature and mingle with society in Florence and Milan, and these two cities, especially the latter, claim a large share of his mature years. He came back, however, to his beloved Sicily, to Catania, the seaport under Etna, to be once more Sicilian of the Sicilians and spend his long declining years in his own place. The first period of his literary activity was taken up with "Society" and elegant love. In this phase he wrote the novels Eros, Eva, Tigre Reale, Il Marito di Elena, real Italian novels of love, intrigue and "elegance": a little tiresome, but with their own depth. His fame, however, rests on his Sicilian works, the two novels: I Malavoglia and Mastro-Don Gesualdo, and the various volumes of short sketches, Vita dei Campi (Cavalleria Rusticana), Novelle Rusticane, and Vagabondaggio, and then the earlier work Storia di Una Capinera, a slight volume of letters between two school-girls, somewhat sentimental and once very popular. The libretto of Cavalleria Rusticana, the well-known opera, was drawn from the first of the sketches in the volume Vita dei Campi. As a man, Verga never courted popularity, any more than his work courts popularity. He kept apart from all publicity, proud in his privacy: so unlike D'Annunzio. Apparently he was never married.

How it happened that Mastro Cherry, carpenter, found a piece of wood that wept and laughed like a child Centuries ago there lived-- "A king!" my little readers will say immediately. No, children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm.

The motivational journey of a poet among his walking words, a tale written in prose with many poems and inspirational quotes. 'Wandering among the stars' tells the love story between the protagonist and life. A story where poetry and prose are intertwined like soul and body, to bring this love story to life so the reader can live it. So it's not about a collection of poems, least of all a story in verse. Maybe it could be described as a book of 'narrated poems' or as a 'literary musical'; actually it represents a narrative experiment that lies somewhere between a meta-novel, a collection of poems and an essay; its main aim is to encourage those readers that usually prefer to read only prose works to read poetry as well. (Do you want to try?) As a poetry anthology it includes chapters about love, the cosmos, death, spirituality and poetry itself. Italian edition of this book has been a hit and has remained for more than twelve consecutive months among the bestsellers of its category in the Italian Kindle Store. ( http://smarturl.it/stelle ) - 'Wonderful book! Wirton Arvel is the new Gibran' Mark J. - 'Poetry is the sound track of our soul; this book tells why' Josh Russell - 'It's like a never ending story singing the song of universe to our soul' Liz Baum - 'Very inspirational biography, for all 'active dreamers' and life lovers' Brandon Dyer - 'This book is like nothing I have ever read before' David H. Birley - 'Reading the book, you become a part of something bigger than yourself' Uvi Poznansky - 'An interesting sensory experience" Dennis Waller - 'Simply beautiful. A treasure for anyone who loves poems' Ionia Martin - 'A book for lovers of words' Scarlett Jensen - ''Impudent stillness' (one of the poems) is a jewel of combination of words and ideas' Jean Pailler - 'This book cannot be summarized - that would tarnish its beauty of wholeness' Grady Harp Grab the free Kindle preview ("send sample" button) and give it a try!

Jenny is a successful family doctor, the mother of three great teenagers, married to a celebrated neurosurgeon. But when her youngest child, fifteen-year-old Naomi, doesn’t come home after her school play, Jenny’s seemingly ideal life begins to crumble. The authorities launch a nationwide search with no success. Naomi has vanished, and her family is broken. As the months pass, the worst-case scenarios—kidnapping, murder—seem less plausible. The trail has gone cold. Yet for a desperate Jenny, the search has barely begun. More than a year after her daughter’s disappearance, she’s still digging for answers—and what she finds disturbs her. Everyone she’s trusted, everyone she thought she knew, has been keeping secrets, especially Naomi. Piecing together the traces her daughter left behind, Jenny discovers a very different Naomi from the girl she thought she’d raised.

Known for his evocative book The Prophet, Gibran's most original work delineates madness -- the existential angst of melancholy and misfortune that separates the individual from society, not a formal mental illness. Gibran contrasts the normal individual who conforms to society's class, role, law, and behavior, with one who sees through hypocrisy, semblance, power, and judges others as ignorant, deceived, or treacherous -- the madman. While the world classifies him as mad, he is thewise one. HOW I BECAME A MADMAN consists of 34 short multi-paragraph sketches, vignettes, parables, and tales composed in a Nietzschean prophetic voice, the insights of Blake, and Eastern story-tellers. The opening passage presents Gibran's theme of madness as social separation: "You ask me how I became a madman. It happened thus: One day, long before many gods were born, I woke from a deep sleep and found all my masks were stolen -- the seven masks I have fashioned and worn in seven lives. I ran maskless through the crowded streets shouting, "Thieves, thieves, the cursed thieves." Men and women laughed at me and some ran to their houses in fear of me. And when I reached the market place, a youth standing on a house-top cried, "He is a madman." I looked up to behold him; the sun kissed my own naked face for the first time. For the first time the sun kissed my own naked face and my soul was inflamed with love for the sun, and I wanted my masks no more. And as if in a trance I cried, "Blessed, blessed are the thieves who stole my masks." Thus I became a madman. And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief." Gibran shows that we wear masks to get along society that demands conformity for collective purposes, whereas to act without a mask, to think and speak and behave without the veil of illusion is to be mad. While being maskless frees us, it carries a risk of loneliness and misunderstanding as we become estranged from others. The Madman goes unnoticed, not listened to, and pitied by others. The press for conformity absorbs society like nothing else. When we look beneath the masks of daily life, we find hypocrisy, greed, pride, sloth, ambition, vanity, conformity. These people do not see anything wrong with the ways of the world. Instead, in madness there is wisdom. In HOW I BECAME A MADMAN a youth wants but to be himself, not what his parents and family demand he be, so he has fled to a madhouse --his hermitage -- to be what he wants to be. This is a heart-felt critique of hypocrisy, wealth, arrogance, and power versus the individual. Who has learned to disengage, to keep a distance while nevertheless relating to others with compassion and kindness.
