HISTORY TELLS US: In 1888, the elusive serial killer, Jack the Ripper, terrorized the Whitechapel District of London. Scotland Yard was baffled. But, that same year, Jack met his match when he crossed paths with the dreadfully evil ...really awful...Count Dracula. On July 22, 1934, notorious bank robber John Dillinger was shot "dead" by the FBI in front of Chicago's Biograph Theater. But, on September 17, 1941, in Miami Beach, Florida, John Dillinger met with former 'King of Chicago', mobster Al Capone, to plan the biggest heist of his career. In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson completed the Louisiana Purchase with France's Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. The price was four cents per acre. But, in 2011, Napoleon decided that he wanted his land back. Master storyteller Michael B. Druxman turns history and literature topsy-turvy in six unforgettable tales. Titles include "The Old Coot", "Dracula Meets Jack the Ripper", "Big Al and Desperate Dan", "Napoleon Brandy", "The Space Ship", and "Bugsy's Boys". 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Frees.

Martin Eden
10,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The semiautobiographical Martin Eden is the most vital and original character Jack London ever created. Set in San Francisco, this is the story of Martin Eden, an impoverished seaman who pursues, obsessively and aggressively, dreams of education and literary fame. London, dissatisfied with the rewards of his own success, intended Martin Eden as an attack on individualism and a criticism of ambition; however, much of its status as a classic has been conferred by admirers of its ambitious protagonist. Andrew Sinclair's wide-ranging introduction discusses the conflict between London's support of socialism and his powerful self-will. Sinclair also explores the parallels and divergences between the life of Martin Eden and that of his creator, focusing on London's mental depressions and how they affected his depiction of Eden. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

There he is forced to lose his domesticated ways and rediscover his natural instincts. Brutalized and beaten with the other dogs, Buck is finally saved from this cruelty by John Thornton. In this kind man's care, Buck learns how to be loved, an essential element in the art of survival. He becomes devoted to his new master in a way that is touching and profound.
