Winnie’s Midnight Dragon

Winnie’s Midnight Dragon

It’s just after midnight. Winnie has gone to bed and is snoring peacefully when Wilbur is woken by a strange noise. He goes downstairs to investigate and, to his horror, discovers a baby dragon squeezing through his cat-flap! Wilbur is not impressed by the scaly visitor, especially when it starts chasing him around Winnie’s house. But the baby dragon just wants to play and, in his exuberance, manages to topple a grandfather clock and knock over a suit of armour. All the clattering wakes Winnie and she’s not happy about a baby dragon in her house, either. After all, there are puffs of smoke coming out of his nose and he might start a fire. So Winnie uses a little magic to turn the smoke into… a cloud of butterlies. This makes Wilbur feel better, he loves chasing butterflies! So now Winnie has a baby dragon and a cat who just want to play whereas she just wants to sleep! Winnie decides she’s had enough of babysitting a dragon and goes onto the roof to look for his mother. But how will she catch the attention of a mother dragon flying past? By magicking a full moon over her house! So with mother and baby dragon reunited, Winnie and Wilbur can finally settle down for an overdue good night’s sleep.

Rainer Maria Rilke wurde am 4. Dezember 1875 in Prag geboren. Von 1886 bis 1891 besuchte er die Militarschule St. Polten, danach die Militar-Oberrealschule in Mahrisch-Weisskirchen. Der vorgesehenen Offizierslaufbahn wich der sensible Knabe jedoch aus und studierte ab 1895 Kunst- und Literaturgeschichte in Prag, Munchen und Berlin. 1897 lernte er Lou Andreas-Salom? kennen, mit der ihn eine tiefe Freundschaft verband. Er unternahm Reisen nach Italien und vor allem nach Russland, bis er 1900 nach Worpswede ubersiedelte. 1901 heiratete er die Bildhauerin Clara Westhoff. Doch die Ehe zerbrach bereits ein Jahr spater. Ab 1905 lebte Rilke in Paris, wo er als Privatsekretar von Auguste Rodin tatig war. Zwischen 1910 und 1913 unternahm er Reisen nach Nordafrika, Italien und Spanien. Wahrend des Ersten Weltkriegs lebte er in Munchen, ab 1918 in der Schweiz. Rilke starb am 29. Dezember 1926 in Valmont.
Die hier versammelten Texte entstammen ausnahmslos Rilkes Fruhwerk. Wichtige Zeugnisse einer bedrangten, von autoritarer Erziehung gepragten Kindheit sind die Erzahlungen «Pierre Dumont» (1894) und «Die Turnstunde» (1902). Die Prosadichtung uber «Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke», 1899 entstanden, jedoch erst 1904 veroffentlicht, gilt als erfolgreichstes und zu Lebzeiten bekanntestes Werk Rainer Maria Rilkes.

The Roman Republic

The Roman Republic

The rise and fall of the Roman Republic occupies a special place in the history of Western civilization. From humble beginnings on the seven hills beside the Tiber, the city of Rome grew to dominate the ancient Mediterranean. Led by her senatorial aristocracy, Republican armies defeated Carthage and the successor kingdoms of Alexander the Great, and brought the surrounding peoples to east and west into the Roman sphere. In this Very Short Introduction, David M. Gwynn provides a fascinating introduction to the history of the Roman Republic, ranging from the origins of Rome and the vivid Roman legends that surround the foundations of the city, to the overthrow of the monarchy in 509 BC, the five hundred years of republican rule, the rise of Julius Caesar and Caesar Augustus, and the establishment of the Principate. Gwynn considers the political structure of the Republic, including its unique constitution, and he highlights literary and material sources, bringing to life the culture and society of Republican Rome. He also reflects on the Roman values and beliefs of the time, in order to shed light on the Republic’s dramatic rise and fall. Finally, Gwynn reflects on the remarkable legacy of the Roman Republic, including its modern-day resonance and legacy in literature and in film, where it is often presented as a model, a source of inspiration, but also a warning.
