Moriae encomium, or, The praise of folly by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In writing Encomium Moriae, Erasmus wrote a satire. This satire takes the form of an oration by the goddess Folly, who is represented as declaiming from a pulpit upon the delights which await those who follow in her path. No class in the Renaissance world is spared in her harangue: kings, courtiers, authors, scholars, priests, and bishops -- all conditions of men feel the lash of her tongue. This was the Erasmian way of showing the world how it could "set itself free from its own ignorance." - Heritage Club Sandglass no. X:17

Thyl je nejprve líčen jako bezstarostný, veselý ztřeštěnec a šprýmař. Postupně se divoký tón mění ve vážný, jak si Thyl uvědomuje španělskou krutovládu a inkvisici, jejíž obětí se stane jeho otec. Jeho putování symbolisuje hledání sil národního odporu. Vyjadřuje lidskou touhu po míru, radosti a štěstí
The black tulip by Alexandre Dumas( Book )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Cornelius von Baerle lives only to cultivate the elusive black tulip and win a magnificent prize for its creation. But when his powerful godfather is assassinated, the unwitting Cornelius becomes caught up in a deadly political intrigue. Falsely accused of high treason by a bitter rival, Cornelius is condemned to life in prison. His only comfort is Rosa, the jailer's beautiful daughter, who helps him concoct a plan to grow the black tulip in secret. As Robin Buss explains in his informative introduction, Dumas infuses his story with elements from the history of the Dutch Republic (including two brutal murders) and Holland's seventeenth-century "tulipmania" phenomenon
The Nibelungenlied: an interpretative commentary by D. G Mowatt( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest of the heroic epics to emerge from medieval Germany, the Nibelungenlied is a revenge saga of sweeping dimensions. It tells of the dragon-slayer Sivrit, the mysterious kingdom of the Nibelungs, a priceless treasure guarded by dwarves and giants, an Amazonian queen, fortune-telling water-sprites, and a cloak of invisibility. Driven by the conflict between Kriemhilt, the innocent maiden turned she-devil, and her antagonist, the stoic, indomitable Hagen, the story is one of love, jealousy, murder, and revenge, ending in slaughter on a horrific scale. - Amazon
