Die Blumen des Bösen ist ein Gedichtband Charles Baudelaires. 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 ?uvres 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.
Henry Cochran, Earl of Kilsyth, was never meant to be an earl. Nevertheless, the title is his, along with the ennui. He has nothing to excite or challenge him. At least that is the case until he unintentionally wins an Irish lass in a game of chance and undertakes an interesting new project—turning the lass into a lady. Eve Doyle had once known privilege and thought her future set. That was, until her brother´s monumental mistake that forced them to flee Ireland and take up residence in Covent Garden. Just when she thought she´d be able to control her life, her brother wagered her at the gaming tables—and lost. Now she must endure the next two years as ward to Lord Kilsyth—a gentleman who wishes to change her as so many have in the past. However, the bigger challenge for both of them will be to keep from losing their hearts. The Wiggons´ School for Elegant Young Ladies meets My Fair Lady with a twist. This story has been heavily influenced by one of my all-time favorite musicals—My Fair Lady. Enjoy!

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.
