“Professor Borges: A course on English Literature is a compilation of the twenty-five lectures Borges gave in 1966 at the University of Buenos Aires, where he taught English literature. Starting with the Vikings’ kennings and Beowulf and ending with Stevenson and Oscar Wilde, the book traverses a landscape of ‘precursors,’cross-cultural borrowings, and genres of expression, all connected by Borges into a vast interpretive web. This is the most surprising and useful of Borges’s works to have appeared posthumously.” Edgardo Krebs, Harper’s

Palle Yourgrau - A World Without Time
In 1942, the logician Kurt Godel and Albert Einstein became close friends; they walked to and from their offices every day, exchanging ideas about science, philosophy, politics, and the lost world of German science. By 1949, Godel had produced a remarkable proof: In any universe described by the Theory of Relativity, time cannot exist. Einstein endorsed this result reluctantly but he could find no way to refute it, since then, neither has anyone else. Yet cosmologists and philosophers alike have proceeded as if this discovery was never made. In A World Without Time, Palle Yourgrau sets out to restore Godel to his rightful place in history, telling the story of two magnificent minds put on the shelf by the scientific fashions of their day, and attempts to rescue the brilliant work they did together.
Jenny Diski - Monkey's Uncle
In early January Charlotte FitzRoy went mad. Christmas had been particularly difficult that year, and then Charlotte's daughter died in a car accident, so her mental breakdown wasn't terribly surprising. But Charlotte was surprised to find that while part of her was now in a mental hospital, part of her had taken off to an alternative wonderland - a bizarre internal world where she makes friends with Jenny, a highly opinionated orang-utan, conservses with Mrx, Freud and Darwin, and a man whose obsessions strangely mirros Charlotte's own.

Further topics include the management of cropping, pastoral, and forestry systems, and rehabilitated mine sites, with a focus on mitigation of and adaptation to climate change impacts. Finally, the opportunities and potential risks of organic farming, biochar and bioenergy systems, and their ability to sustain and even enhance soil health, are discussed.

Stephen Hunt - The Kingdom Beyond the Waves
Professor Amelia Harsh is obsessed with finding the lost civilization of Camlantis, a legendary city from pre-history that is said to have conquered hunger, war, and disease with the creation of the perfect pacifist society. Without official funding, Amelia is forced to accept an offer of patronage from Abraham Quest, the man she blames for her father’s bankruptcy and suicide. She hates him, but he has something that Amelia desperately wants--evidence that proves that Camlantis existed and that the Camlantean ruins are buried under one of the sea-like lakes that dot the murderous jungles of Liongeli. Amelia will blackmail her old friend Commodore Black into ferrying her along a huge river on his ancient U-boat. With an untrusty crew of freed convicts, Quest’s force of fearsome female mercenaries on board, and a lunatic steamman acting as their guide, Amelia’s luck seems to be going from bad to worse. Her quest for the perfect society has a good chance of bringing her own world to the brink of destruction…

Thomson Willing - Some Old Time Beauties
The Dashing Duchess,—the impulsive, ebullient beauty whose smile swayed ministers, and for whose favor princes were beggars! A loveliness of manner, as of feature, such seductive color,—glowing carnations,—and such golden-brown hair, with a fine figure, made up an opulent personality, than which no more consummate type of beauty has been preserved to us by painter or poet. Georgiana Spencer was the daughter of Lord Spencer, afterwards first Earl Spencer; but her impulsiveness, her waywardness, and improvidence were a legacy from her grandfather, "Jack" Spencer, the grandson and special favorite of the beautiful Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough. Her "Torismond," she called him. His was a career of profligacy, a course of error and extravagance. His mother was Lady Sunderland, known in society as "the little Whig," from her small stature and her persistent politics. Her party badge was always worn,—the black patch on the left side of the face, as distinguished from the Tory fashion of wearing it on the right side. So Georgiana came legitimately by her beauty, her Whiggish politics, and her versatile vivacity of manner, as well as her improvidence and indiscretion.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan - Scarborough and the Critic
What various transformations we remark, From east Whitechapel to the west Hyde Park! Men, women, children, houses, signs, and fashions, State, stage, trade, taste, the humours and the passions; The Exchange, 'Change Alley, wheresoe'er you're ranging, Court, city, country, all are changed or changing The streets, some time ago, were paved with stones, Which, aided by a hackney-coach, half broke your bones. The purest lovers then indulged in bliss; They ran great hazard if they stole a kiss. One chaste salute!—the damsel cried—Oh, fie! As they approach'd—slap went the coach awry— Poor Sylvia got a bump, and Damon a black eye.

Ismeretlen szerző - In Quest of the Miracle Stag - The Poetry of Hungary Vol.2
Örömmel ajánljuk figyelmébe ezt a gyönyörű könyvet, amely a magyar költészet kincseit mutatja be a legkorábbi időktől a 20.századig, angol nyelven. A kötet terjedelme 1140 oldal, 25 fametszet diszíti, melyeket Buday György készített ehhez a könyvhöz. Ez a kitűnően szerkesztett angol nyelvű válogatás egyedülálló a maga nemében. Szerkesztője Makkai Ádám a chicagói University of Illinois egyetem nyelvészprofesszora. Ő és munkatársai igyekeztek a lehető legtöbb információval segíteni az idegen nyelvű olvasókat. A Csodaszarvas monda ismertetése után a magyar nyelv sajátosságainak rövid ismertetése és a magyar hangok kiejtésének leírása előzi meg az érdemi részt, a versek bemutatását. Nyolc nagy fejezet tartalmazza a válogatott verseket: Az elsőben a NÉPKÖLTÉSZET KINCSEIBŐL olvashatunk, a második fejezet a KÖZÉPKORI EMLÉKEKBŐL válogat, a harmadik fejezet a 16-17. SZÁZAD ÉS A REFORMÁCIÓ költőié, a negyedik fejezet A KURUC KÖLTÉSZETÉ, az ötödikben találjuk A MAGYAR FELVILÁGOSODÁS KORÁNAK alkotóit, a hatodik fejezet a ROMANTIKUSOKÉ. A hetedik fejezet címe: KLASSZIKUS-MODERN MAGYAR KÖLTÉSZET, a nyolcadik fejezet a 20. SZÁZADBAN SZÜLETETT KLASSZIKUS KÖLTŐINK műveiből ad ízelítőt. A verstár Juhász Ferenc költeményével - A szarvassá változott fiú kiáltozása a titkok kapujából - zárul, a Csodaszarvas újból feltűnik, és az első kötet válogatása ezzel lezárul. A versek után egy 80 oldalas tanulmány olvasható a magyar költészetről Cs. Szabó László tollából. Az olvasó tájékozódását segítő történeti és irodalomtörténeti áttekintés élvezetes olvasmány. A függelékben közreadjuk a magyar Himnuszt az eredeti Erkel-kottával, és egy rövid értekezést a magyar verselésről. A versek bemutatását megelőzi egy-egy rövid irodalomtörténeti összefoglaló alkotóik életútjáról. Érdekesség, hogy néhány vers több változatban is szerepel az antológiában. Például az Ómagyar Mária-siralom négy költő-fordítót is megihletett, s egyikük a verset közép-angolra fordította. A kötetben található több mint 600 verset összesen 98 neves fordító ültette át angolra. A CSODASZARVAS NYOMÁBAN első kötete méltó módon képviselhet bennünket bárhol a világon, és jó esélyünk van arra, hogy nem csak azoknak a barátainknak, rokonainknak, üzletfeleinknek okozunk vele kellemes meglepetést, akik már tudnak valamit a magyar irodalomról, kultúráról, hanem jó néhány olyan embernek is a nagyvilágban, akik csak az elterjedt közhelyekből vélnek ismerni bennünket.
