Remembering... Kenneth Williams, Hörbuch, Digit...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Wonderful highlights of Kenneth Williams’ career in this classic compilation. For more than 30 years, Kenneth Williams kept the nation in stitches with his outrageous gallery of comic creations and an effortlessly brilliant barrage of repartee and innuendo on radio and television. In Beyond Our Ken and Round the Horne, Kenneth Williams brought us the popular characters of Rambling Syd Rumpo, J. Peasemold Gruntfuttock, and Sandy (of Julian & Sandy). Remembering... Kenneth Williams wouldn’t be complete without his legendary contributions to Hancock’s Half Hour and Just a Minute. And there’s more: songs, sketches, clips from Parkinson, Just Williams, and Williams himself reading from his witty autobiography. Also featured are Clement Freud, John Betjeman, and Simon Hoggart. It’s a lifetime’s worth of laughter-making in one recording. It’s Kenneth at his campest. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kenneth Williams.

This book explores the folklore and history of the dwarven clans of Krynn through the bickering clans' reconciliation and the construction of the legendary Thorbardin. By the author of Gates of Thorbardin. An old dwarven chieftain, Colin Stonetooth, leads a tribe of Hylar in a migration across Ansalon, pursuing a vision of a new home. Hordes of dangerous outsiders, fleeing the Dragon Wars, are sweeping the countryside. Evil magic, strange knights, precocious kender, too, abound. In the Kharolis Mountains, in Kal Thax, the Hylar come upon squabbling dwarven clans and knit them into the new nation of Thorbardin. But a Theiwar assassin precipitates a civil war, a curse is fulfilled, and a child is born destined to become the Father of Kings. The long-awaited historical saga of the bitterly rivalrous dwarven clans of Krynn is told for the first time by Dan Parkinson, author of the Dragonlance novel The Gates of Thorbardin and stories in the Tales II Trilogy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Allen O'Reilly. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/008808/bk_adbl_008808_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Dior: The Legendary Images
56,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Reaching beyond the intimate setting of the fashion show, the photographer paints a portrait of haute couture that takes the couturier's intention to enchant the public and elevates it to the level of the sublime. The great names in photography, the mythical photos that have constructed Dior's image, and the emblematic subjects of the house's iconography-whether they are dreams of a faraway place or captured in the vast open-sky 'studios' of Paris or Versailles-are all evoked in this vast panorama that takes us through more than sixty years in the history of fashion photography. Published to accompany the Dior and Fashion Photography exhibition presented at the Musée Christian Dior in Granville, France, this lavish volume presents a wealth of gorgeous photographs that bring the character of the couturier's dresses to life, with each photographer interpreting them in his or her unique style. Legendary contributors include Horst P. Horst, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Cecil Beaton, Norman Parkinson, Henry Clarke, William Klein, Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Sarah Moon, Paolo Roversi, Nick Knight, Ines Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Tim Walker, Willy Vanderperre, Patrick Demarchelier, and many more. Stunning, glamorous, and iconic, Dior and Fashion Photography exemplifies how the haute couture house transcended fashion to enter the realm of legend.

THE DEAD (Annotated)
8,90 CHF *

The Dead It is now approaching one hundred years since the first publication of The Dead and this wonderful story continues to fascinate readers, even prompting in recent times a film adaptation and a stage play. There are many who feel it is the finest short story/novella ever written. Beautifully executed in so many ways, multilayered and possessing an ineffable delicateness in subtlety throughout, it may indeed be James Joyce's finest writing. There is something so captivating in the way The Dead unfolds that even peripheral characters such as Lily the caretaker's daughter, Miss Ivors and Bartell D'Arcy take on a very definite existence and linger with the reader taken through this tale of tussle between the living and the dead. Critical interest in the story has remained active with scholars still debating the meaning of the title, still searching out the meaning of Gabriel's 'journey westward', and continuing identifying thematic significances. One fact that there is unanimity upon is that Gabriel Conroy is James Joyce-and the twenty-five year-old James Joyce writing the story in Trieste in the spring and summer of 1907 is harsh on himself: 'A shameful consciousness of his own person assailed him. He saw himself as a ludicrous figure, acting as a pennyboy for his aunts, a nervous well-meaning sentimentalist, orating to vulgarians and idealising his own clownish lusts, the pitiable fatuous fellow he had caught a glimpse of in the mirror. Instinctively he turned his back more to the light lest she might see the shame that burned upon his forehead.' The ending of the story where Gabriel looks out the window of his room in the Gresham Hotel and watches the snow - 'His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.' - is quite unforgettable. Many editions in several languages have been published. The latest (edited and generously and informatively annotated by James Mulligan) is a lavishly illustrated book that contains fifty-nine monochrome and color illustrations of the contemporary Dublin. Some of the illustrations such as the two photos of the legendary opera singer mentioned in the story, William Parkinson, and an illustration of the famous English soprano, Georgina Burns, are seen for the first time.
