Révolte contre le monde moderne

Initialement paru en 1934, traduit en allemand un an après, " Révolte contre le monde moderne " est considéré comme l'ouvrage le plus important de Julius Evola (1898-1974). Ce livre prouve que déjà à cette époque, les bases d'une révolte globale contre la civilisation contemporaine avaient été posées, révolte en comparaison de laquelle la " contestation " qui s'est exprimée à la fin des années soixante du XXe siècle apparaît chaotiqu...

They deal mainly with Greek lyr...

Faith: Stories: Short Fiction on the Varieties and Vagaries of Faith - Sister Imelda

In this collection of short stories about faith, Curtis, the fiction editor of the Atlantic Monthly, plunges the reader into a sometimes baffling, often disconcerting world of belief.

Poems of Sophia

Solovyov's Sophia poems--indeed his very concept of Sophia--have always been cited as crucial to the development of Russian Symbolism, but until now, they have unavailable in English. Russian Symbolism has always had a stronger mystical strain than its French model, and Solovyov has always been greatly responsible for that. The poems, written in two waves, the first almost immediately following a mystical vision that Solovyev experie...

P.S. I Still Love You

There are so many reviews I'll keep mine short and basic. Also make sure you read the first in the series before looking at anything here! This book was so much fun to read. It picks up after the first and has Lara Jean and Peter in some turmoil. There is a lot of turmoil throughout a good portion of this book! I don't want to give anything away but the one major thing that is in this book is the surfacing of a video from a certain s...

These visionary tales span genres—sci-fi, ...

Lenas Liebe. Roman

"Wer erzählt, hat eine Frage." Judith Kuckart erzählt die anrührende Geschichte einer eigenwilligen Frau. Je tiefer man eindringt in ihre Verstrickungen, desto mehr Fragen tun sich auf, und auch die Antworten geraten in die Schwebe zwischen Wirklichkeit und Wunsch: Warum ist jedes Erkennen ein Wiedererkennen? Warum ist die Erinnerung an die Liebe stärker als die Liebe selbst? Warum passt das Leben manchmal so schlecht wie ein falsche...
