Das dichterische Hauptwerk Baudelaires handelt vom Großstadtmenschen und dessen Ennui, einer mit Widerwillen, Unlust und Verdruss verbundenen Entfremdung gegenüber dem Dasein. Es beeinflusste, nach einer Phase versiegender Wahrnehmung, später stark das Schaffen Arthur Rimbauds, Paul Verlaines und Stéphane Mallarmés und gilt in der Literaturgeschichte als Ausgangspunkt der modernen europäischen Lyrik. - Unique recueil de poèmes en vers de Charles Baudelaire, Les Fleurs du Mal englobent la quasi-totalité de sa production poétique, de 1840 jusqu´à sa mort survenue fin août 1867. Ce recueil est l´une des oeuvres majeures de la poésie moderne. Les poèmes empreintes d´une nouvelle esthétique où l´art poétique juxtapose une réalité souvent crue - voire triviale - à la beauté la plus ineffable, exerceront une influence considérable sur des poètes ultérieurs aussi éminents que Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud et Stéphane Mallarmé.
The Big Chill meets The Group in Deborah Copaken Kogan’s wry, lively, and irresistible new novel about a once-close circle of friends at their 20th college reunion. Clover, Addison, Mia, and Jane were roommates at Harvard until their graduation in 1989. Clover, homeschooled on a commune by mixed-race parents, felt woefully out of place. Addison yearned to shed the burden of her Mayflower heritage. Mia mined the depths of her suburban ennui to enact brilliant performances on the Harvard stage. Jane, an adopted Vietnamese war orphan, made sense of her fractured world through words. Twenty years later, their lives are in free fall. Clover, once a securities broker with Lehman, is out of a job and struggling to reproduce before her fertility window slams shut. Addison’s marriage to a writer’s-blocked novelist is as stale as her so-called career as a painter. Hollywood shut its gold-plated gates to Mia, who now stays home with her four children, renovating and acquiring faster than her director husband can pay the bills. Jane, the Paris bureau chief for a newspaper whose foreign bureaus are now shuttered, is caught in a vortex of loss. Like all Harvard grads, they’ve kept abreast of one another via the red book, a class report published every five years, containing brief autobiographical essays by fellow alumni. But there’s the story we tell the world, and then there’s the real story, as these former classmates will learn during their 20th reunion weekend, when they arrive with their families, their histories, their dashed dreams, and their secret yearnings to a relationship-changing, score-settling, unforgettable weekend. 1.

Winner of the 2012 Laine Cunningham Novel Award! Everybody hates their homeowner’s association, and nobody likes a zombie apocalypse. Put the two together, and Withrow Surrett is having a truly craptastic night. Not to mention the fact that he’s got one big secret to keep from the idiots in his home - Withrow is a vampire. Perishables has been called by some ´´a gripping examination into suburban ennui set in a milieu of postmodern apocalyptic horror”. Not really. Those people would be navel-gazing idiots. Perishables is a bust-your-gut funny collection of three stories about trust, human and undead relationships, what community really means, and zombies. A LOT of freakin’ zombies. Fans of The Black Knight Chronicles, The Tome of Bill, and Fred, the Vampire Accountant will love this series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Wayne.

It is a short story/novella. Fact one: By tradition and treaty, Fae do not interfere with the human world - it is against the rules. Fact two: For a Royal Fae prince who suffers from the ennui of immortality, watching and interacting with humans - especially lovely, spirited human females - can be entertaining. Fact three: When entertainment changes to affection, and affection becomes love, rules will be broken. His name is Breslyn, Prince of Dagda of the Tuatha De. He is a royal Fae, immortal and endowed with more than eye candy looks. He is a being with immeasurable powers but life for him lacked something - so he looked around, and found... humans. Watching their lives and interactions, from another dimension filled him with feelings he had thought long lost in the ennui of immortality. The more he watched - the more addicted to their antics he became. An affection for the human race grew inside the heart Fae are not supposed to have, and it was inevitable that he began to have preferences with regards to them. In 1314, when Scotland´s rule was in jeopardy and the British were about to take more than they should, he chose a side - and then he saw her, and nothing would ever be the same for the prince ever again... 1.
