OF WISHING RINGS, OGRES AND OTHER MAGICAL THINGS Callipygia the Amazon and her stalwart knight Mandricardo had had more than enough. All they really wanted to do was avoid the perils, both swordlike and sorcerous, of the many fabled lands of Terra Magica and win their way back home to Tartary to settle down in wedded bliss. But a realm of roving monsters and wild enchantments is not so easily traveled through unscathed, and when Callipygia and Mandricardo find themselves trapped on a spell-run flying island from which no one has ever escaped, it signals the start of a madcap romp of magic and menace that will lead them into far-distant kingdoms and dangers undreamed...

Bestselling novelist, Margaret George, here imagines the story of Helen of Sparta and Troy, one of the most amazing female mythical characters, ancient or modern. A war, which lasted for 10 years, was fought over her and nearly all the stories of the heroic age were bound into her story – a measure of her capacity to galvanise men into action. Using her unique gift for research and recreation, Margaret George brings to life a Helen who was a tantalizing enigma from the very first, flesh and blood certainly, but also immortal, as the daughter of Zeus. Her beauty is so overwhelming and dangerous that, as a child, she is protected from seeing her reflection. Kings and princes compete for her hand in marriage, and she marries Menelaus of Sparta, but before marrying him all her other suitors swear to help bring Helen back should she ever be abducted again. When she falls for Paris of Troy it is assumed that he has taken her by force, when her actions are far more complex. The suitors are obliged to honour their oath and so the Trojan War begins – the most pivotal event in the history of ancient Greece . . . and the tragedy of these individuals. ‘An epic novel... Margaret George recreates... passions... with extraordinary intensity. If only history lessons had been like this’ Cosmopolitan

Dans ce recueil convergent différents regards sur la poésie de W.B. Yeats. Ces pages le situent par rapport à d’autres poètes comme MacNeice. Elles nous promènent aussi des premiers volumes, où l’espace de l’écriture devient l’écriture de l’espace, à Responsabilities, volume qui témoigne d’une intensité qu’Ezra Pound qualifie de « robustesse nouvelle », puis à travers les thèmes sexuels, politiques et esthétiques de Michael Robartes and the Dancer. Nous abordons ensuite les grands poèmes de la maturité avec The Tower. Cet ouvrage envisage également des sujets généraux, comme l’importance de la tradition pour Yeats, sa conception de l’au-delà avec la dette envers l’Inde en particulier, son attitude face à la dégénérescence, sa vision de l’Apocalypse avec le symbole de la spirale. D’autres études se concentrent sur certains grands poèmes tels que « The Circus Animais Desertion », qui tisse ensemble et la vie et l’art, ou « Lapis Lazuli » et la notion de « joie tragique ».

Hundreds of years in the future, after the collapse of the Western world, young Menelaus Illation Montrose grows up in what was once Texas as a gunslinging duelist for hire. But Montrose is also a mathematical genius—and a romantic who dreams of a future in which humanity rises from the ashes to take its place among the stars. The chance to help usher in that future comes when Montrose is recruited for a manned interstellar mission to investigate an artifact of alien origin. Known as the Monument, the artifact is inscribed with data so complex, only a posthuman mind can decipher it. So Montrose does the unthinkable: he injects himself with a dangerous biochemical drug designed to boost his already formidable intellect to superhuman intelligence. It drives him mad. Nearly two centuries later, his sanity restored, Montrose is awakened from cryo-suspension with no memory of his posthuman actions, to find Earth transformed in strange and disturbing ways, and learns that the Monument still carries a secret he must decode—one that will define humanity's true future in the universe. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
