In einem Hotel an der Côte d’Azur lernt Maxim de Winter eine junge Frau aus einfachen Verhältnissen kennen. Die beiden verlieben sich, und schon nach kurzer Zeit nimmt sie seinen Heiratsantrag an und folgt dem Witwer nach Cornwall auf seinen prachtvollen Landsitz Manderley. Doch das Glück der Frischvermählten währt nicht lange: Der Geist von Maxims toter Ehefrau Rebecca ist allgegenwärtig, und die ihr ergebene Haushälterin macht der neuen Herrin das Leben zur Hölle, sie droht nicht nur die Liebe des Paares zu zerstören. Als ein Jahr später plötzlich doch noch Rebeccas Leiche gefunden wird, gerät Maxim de Winter unter Mordverdacht ... Rebecca, Daphne du Mauriers berühmtester Roman, war bereits bei seinem Erscheinen 1938 ein Bestseller. Er wurde mehrfach verfilmt: 1940 entstand unter der Regie von Alfred Hitchcock die bekannteste Adaption, die mit zwei Oscars prämiert wurde.

Whisked from glamorous Monte Carlo to his brooding estate, Manderley, on the Cornish Coast, the new Mrs de Winter finds Max a changed man. And the memory of his dead wife Rebecca is forever kept alive by the forbidding Mrs Danvers . . . Not since Jane Eyre has a heroine faced such difficulty with the Other Woman.

What does it mean to be out walking in the world, whether in a landscape or a metropolis, on a pilgrimage or a protest march? In this first general history of walking, Rebecca Solnit draws together many histories to create a range of possibilities for this most basic act. Arguing that walking as history means walking for pleasure and for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit homes in on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from the peripatetic philosophers of ancient Greece to the poets of the Romantic Age, from the perambulations of the Surrealists to the ascents of mountaineers. With profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction - from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Rousseau to Argentina's Mother of the Plaza de Mayo, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja - Wanderlust offers a provocative and profound examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.

Rebecca Horn ist eine der erfolgreichsten und vielschichtigsten deutschen Gegenwartskünstlerinnen. Sie hat in den letzten vier Jahrzehnten ein komplexes Oeuvre geschaffen, für das sie mit zahlreichen Kunstpreisen ausgezeichnet worden ist - nicht zuletzt 2010 mit dem Nobelpreis der Künste, dem Praemium Imperiale des japanischen Kaiserhauses. Performance, Zeichnung, Installation, Kinetik, Video, Film, Fotografie und Text sind Medien, mit denen sie arbeitet. Durch Referenzen auf bestimmte Kunstrichtungen positioniert sich Rebecca Horn zudem geschickt im kulturellen Raum und schafft es, sich auf rebellisch-subversive Weise in den (vornehmlich männlich dominierten) Kunstdiskurs einzuschreiben. Erstmals untersucht das vorliegende Buch das Werk von Rebecca Horn in seiner gesamten Breite, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf ihrer Auseinandersetzung mit politischen, historischen, sozialen und medialen Räumen liegt.

  • Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Traditionally, scholars have approached Roman sexuality using categories of sexual ethics drawn from contemporary, Western society. In this 2006 book Dr Langlands seeks to move away from these towards a deeper understanding of the issues that mattered to the Romans themselves, and the ways in which they negotiated them, by focusing on the untranslatable concept of pudicitia (broadly meaning 'sexual virtue'). She offers a series of nuanced close readings of texts from a wide spectrum of Latin literature, including history, oratory, love poetry and Valerius Maximus' work Memorable Deeds and Sayings. Pudicitia emerges as a controversial and unsettled topic, at the heart of Roman debates about the difference between men and women, the relation between mind and body, and the ethics of power and status differentiation within Roman culture. The book develops strategies for approaching the study of an ancient culture through sensitive critical readings of its literary productions.

What is a Romance language? How is it related to other Romance languages, how did they all evolve, and what can they tell us about language in general? In this comprehensive survey Rebecca Posner, a distinguished Romance specialist, examines this group of languages from a wide variety of perspectives. Her analysis combines philological expertise with insights drawn from modern theoretical linguistics, and relates linguistic features to historical and sociological factors. Her discussion is extensively illustrated with new and original data, and an up-to-date and comprehensive bibliography is included.
