Говард Пайл The Story of the Grail and the Passing of Arthur


Generations of children have thrilled to Howard Pyle's skillful retelling of the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. This book is one of the best of the series — a rich chronicle that includes the stirring adventures of Sir Galahad and the pursuit of the Holy Grail as well as the last chapter in the life of King Arthur.The book begins with the exciting story of Sir Geraint — how he fought with the knights of the Sparrow-Hawk, how he set right the wrongs of the earldom, how he destroyed three giants of the highway and more. The narrative then takes up the thrilling exploits of Sir Galahad («the most perfect knight who ever lived»): his initiation into knighthood, how he came to the court of King Arthur and his quest for the Holy Grail. Finally, there are the last chapters in the life of King Arthur — his attack on Sir Lancelot, his fatal battle with Sir Mordred and Arthur's final journey to Avalon.Recounted in language appropriately medieval in flavor and enhanced with 39 of Howard Pyle's richly atmospheric illustrations, these tales promise a splendid reading experience — a magical journey to a far-off time and a bygone world of knightly valor and chivalric romance.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle The Lost World


The restless, questing intellect of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spurred him far beyond the ingenious puzzles he constructed for Sherlock Holmes. In The Lost World, Doyle, a devotee of the occult and fantastic tales of adventure and discovery, introduces his readers to Professor Challenger, an eccentric paleontologist, on his suspense-filled search for prehistoric creatures in the wilds of the Amazon. Professor Challenger's doughty troupe includes a skeptical colleague, Professor Summerlee; the cool-headed, plucky sportsman Lord John Roxton; and the narrator, the intrepid reporter Edward Malone. When their bridge to civilization collapses, the explorers find themselves marooned among dinosaurs and savage ape-people.Originally published in 1912, this imaginative fantasy unfolds with humor and good-natured satirical eye for pedantry. Fans of Arthur Conan Doyle will delight in this rare gem, as will dinosaur fanciers and adventure story aficionados.

Anonymous The Quest of the Holy Grail (The High History of the Holy Graal)


Here is the tale of the search for the Holy Grail, the vessel that received the blood of Christ upon the day of his Crucifixion. This anonymous story is thought to be a continuation of the French trouvère Chrétien de Troyes' unfinished «Perceval, The Story of the Grail.» Written sometime in the early 13th century, this Arthurian Romance remains unique for its high amount of allegorical mysticism and use of Celtic lore. Our hero Perceval here goes through various toils and trials in his continued search for the Holy Grail. An important piece of the Arthurian canon, «The Quest for the Holy Grail» adds to the rich world of King Arthur's court. Again we meet Gawain, Lancelot, and Galahad, as their quest for divinity moves forth.

Группа авторов The Proustian Quest


"An ambitious study, the fruit of sustained work over many years. Professor Carter's book deploys a stunning knowledge of Proust and places Carter among the first line of Proust scholars in the country."&#151;Roger Shattuck,Boston University The Proustian Quest is the first full-length study that explores the influence of social change on Proust's vision. In Remembrance of Things Past , Proust describes how the machines of transportation and communication transformed fashion, social mores, time-space perception, and the understanding of the laws of nature. Concentrating on the motif of speed, Carter establishes the centrality of the modern world to the novel's main themes and produces a far- reaching synthesis that demonstrates the work's profound structural unity.
