ggf. zzgl. Versand

When the writer, Oxford scholar, and photographer John Jameson, visits the home of his vicar friend, Daniel Baxter, he is entranced by his youngest daughter, Daisy. Jameson charms her with his wit and child-like imagination, teasing her with riddles and inventing humourous stories as they enjoy afternoons alone by the river and in his rooms. The shocking impact of this unusual friendship is only brought to light when, years later, Daisy, unsettled in her marriage, rediscovers her childhood diaries in an old toy chest. Inspired by the tender and troubling friendship between Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jilly Bond, Andrew Wincott, Penelope Rawlins, Paul Anstel.

Contemporary Art: A Very Short Introduction , H...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Contemporary art has never been so popular - but what is 'contemporary' about contemporary art? What is its role today, and who is controlling its future? Bloody toy soldiers, gilded shopping carts, and embroidered tents. Contemporary art is supposed to be a realm of freedom where artists shock, break taboos, flout generally received ideas, and switch between confronting viewers with works of great emotional profundity and jaw-dropping triviality. But away from shock tactics in the gallery, there are many unanswered questions. Who is really running the art world? What effect has America's growing political and cultural dominance had on art? Julian Stallabrass takes us inside the international art world to answer these and other controversial questions, and to argue that behind contemporary art's variety and apparent unpredictability lies a grim uniformity. Its mysteries are all too easily explained, its depths much shallower than they seem. Contemporary art seeks to bamboozle its viewers while being the willing slave of business and government. This audiobook is your antidote and will change the way you see contemporary art. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These audiobooks are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly listenable. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Conlan.

The Secret Life of Words: English Words and The...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From new words such as "bling" and "email" to the role of text messaging and other electronic communications, English is changing all around us. Discover the secrets behind the words in our everyday lexicon with this delightful, informative survey of English, from its Germanic origins to the rise of globalization and cyber-communications. Professor Curzan approaches words like an archaeologist, digging below the surface to uncover the story of words, from the humble "she" to such SAT words as "conflagration" and "pedimanous." In these 36 fascinating lectures, you'll discover the history of the dictionary and how words make it into a reference book like the Oxford English Dictionary; survey the borrowed words that make up the English lexicon; find out how words are born and how they die; expand your vocabulary by studying Greek and Latin "word webs"; and revel in new terms, such as "musquirt," "adorkable," and "struggle bus." English is an omnivorous language and has borrowed heavily from the many languages it has come into contact with, from Celtic and Old Norse in the Middle Ages to the dozens of world languages in the truly global 20th and 21st centuries. You'll be surprised to learn that the impulse to conserve "pure English" is nothing new. In fact, if English purists during the Renaissance had their way, we would now be using Old English compounds such as "flesh-strings" for "muscles" and "bone-lock" for "joint." You may not come away using terms like "whatevs" or "multislacking" in casual conversation, but you'll love studying the linguistic system that gives us such irreverent - and fun - slang, from "boy toy" to "cankles." PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne Curzan.

Dream of a Summer Night

Young Tom has been dumped by his parents on his great-uncle Percy in Oxford for the summer. The boy goes missing. In steps a toy bear called Bodley. The story revolves around the bond between Bodley and Bloomsbury, bear-in-residence in the British Museum. The plot is driven by the search for a highly important lost manuscript. A streetwise hero emerges in Russell Rat. Lives are at risk as the two bears seek refuge back in Oxford. Here, an inspired Bloomsbury finally grasps the meaning of everything, and Bodley gets to find out who he really is. The story balances on the cusp where childhood dreams fade away. Fantasy and reality mix and mingle. Young meets old, past meets present, silly meets serious. Talking animals serve up philosophy and humor. The book challenges fixed ideas about growing up, contemporary lifestyle, cultural values, generation gaps. It's an adult story for the young and a young story for adults. But first and foremost, this is entertainment from start to finish.
