Lord of the Geats , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 291min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Here is the famous Beowulf story, retold for the young-adult listener. Like the original Anglo-Saxon manuscript, it is divided into three parts. The first section narrates Beowulf's battle against Grendel. The second section tells of the furious revenge of Grendel's mother, an ageless monster with indomitable will, who lives in a dark green, murky sea, which the Danes believed to be bottomless, and who can stalk and kill with her son's savage power. (This section is often left out of retellings.)The third section shows the great hero in his declining years and almost never appears in retellings. Herein, Beowulf is an old man. It is decades after his assistance to King Hrothgar, and Beowulf is back home among the Geats as their chosen king. His final battle shows his new method in fighting. Youthful speed and strength have been replaced with cunning, deception, strategy. There are moments when his strength revives. His opponent is an aging dragon, who now flies slowly and awkwardly, but can still shoot down enough fire to imperil the Geats kingdom. Aging hero faces aging monster in an early-day twilight of the gods, with displays of valor and chivalry before these terms were known. The dragon breathes streaks of lethal fire, but suffers shortness of breath. The heavy scales on his body provide excellent armor, but tend to tire him. While flying, he notices small birds passing him. The two opponents feel a grudging respect and realize their era is ending, no matter who wins their relentless duel. 1. Language: English.

The following book introduces the listener to the biographies of four key figures who led the American Revolution against the Kingdom of Great Britain: George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. George Washington lived an incredible life, during a time that can be hard to comprehend. In this version, you will find things about George Washington that might surprise you and that you did not know before you heard this book. You will find out that he was the type of man that tried to lay things out in such a way as to make his opponent look bad or if need be, to bend the truth if necessary. Alexander Hamilton’s story seems like a classic tale of rags to riches, of a poor boy whose hard work and perseverance allowed him to become one of the greatest historical figures of a nation. At the completion of this book, you will have a good understanding of the amazing life he lived Thomas Jefferson was one of the men who helped to bring the United States into being, and he shepherded the country through some of the most dynamic political years in its history. It is very possible that without his brilliance, the fledgling democracy may not have survived its first few trials by fire. Benjamin Franklin was very popular and highly respected in the American colonies, England, and France. Franklin was highly intelligent and a very generous and compassionate person, who often woke up early and would ask himself what good he could accomplish that day.After listening you will still not have every answer to every question you might want to know about the life of these four outstanding personalities; however, if you aspire to lead, whether in business or your community, this book is just what you need! Do not hesitate, order your copy now! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jerry Beebe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/168583/bk_acx0_168583_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Horace Jeremiah "Jerry" Voorhis (April 6, 1901 September 11, 1984) was a Democratic politician from California in the United States. He served five terms in the United States House of Representatives, representing the 12th Congressional district in Los Angeles County from 1937 to 1947. He was the first political opponent of Richard Nixon, who defeated him for re-election in 1946 in a campaign cited as an example of red-baiting in Nixon's political rise. Voorhis was born in Kansas, and moved around much in his childhood. He graduated from Yale University after being elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and earned a master's degree in education from Claremont Graduate School. He then founded and became headmaster of the Voorhis School for Boys in 1928, a post he retained into his congressional career

Adapting 'Billy Bishop goes to War' for Germany

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 3,0, RWTH Aachen University (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Recent Canadian Drama, language: English, abstract: I. Introduction - A Canadian play for a German audience While talking about the play 'Billy Bishop goes to war' by John Gray and Eric Peterson that was written in 1976, different points of view play a decisive role. The play deals with a Canadian boy who joins the military because of a lack of possibilities. The action begins in Canada in 1914. That means it is the time of World War I and Canadian forces fight as a part of the Empire against the enemy, namely Germany. The play describes Billy Bishop's rise from a Canadian boy to a national hero as a fighter ace. Consequently there are different attitudes towards the play, for instance if you are an opponent of war or an advocate of it. Furthermore there is the question of age: if you have fought in a war and have seen how friends die or if you are a young man who is full of bravery, strength and patriotism, you have a different attitude towards such a play. But above all there is the question of nationality. As the play is of Canadian origin and originally played for Canadians, the question is meaningless. But on the one hand the fact that the play received great honor and was performed on Broadway and on the other hand the existence of a German film version opens a completely new kind of adapting the play for Germany.In the film version there are German actors that play Billy and the piano player and the text is German, too. What these facts mean and how film and play are adapted for Germany is analyzed in the following term paper. Concerning that there is not any kind of secondary literature about this topic that can be accessed by a German Library, the analysis is based upon my own results of analyzing play and film as well as studying the preface of the drama. The version of the play is the one in the Jerry Wasserman anthology 'Modern Canadian Plays' published by Talonbooks, Vancouver and the film version is the one directed by Peter Meincke and Norman McCandlish of the year 1984/1985. II.1 SummaryThe Canadian play 'Billy Bishop goes to war' by John Gray and Eric Peterson deals with a young Canadian from Owen Sound, Ontario who becomes a flying-ace and a hero. The play takes place in the year 1914, which means the time of World War I, where recruits from the British colonies were drafted to support the British Empire against the Germans, or as they call it, the Huns. At the age of twenty Billy enters the Royal Military College (R.M.C.) because of a lack of opportunities and the qualification of
