Water Music is the rambunctious account of two men`s wild adventures trough the gutters of London and The Scottish Highlands. The year is 1795: George III is dabbing the walls of Windsor Castle with spittle, Goya is deaf, De Quincey is a depraved prepubescent and young Ludwig von Beethoven is wowing them in Vienna with his second piano concerto. In London, Ned Rise, thief and whoremaster, is drinking Strip-Me-Naked with Nan Punt and Sally Sebum at the Pig and Pox Tavern in Maiden Lane. And, far from his native Edinburgh, the explorer Mungo Park is stranded in the Sahara, a prisoner of the Moors of Ludamar.

Categorie: Literatuur/fictie Engelstalig

Omschrijving
In this volume twenty-four of the best-known tales are given in the exact words in which they were first published in English; or, in a few cases, in the exact words of the earliest surviving text. Although these stories are repeated today wherever the English language is spoken, the source versions have never before been brought together. Each tale has an historical introduction, showing the development of the story, citing parallels in other countries and other centuries, and nothing particular points of interest. Such questions are discussed as: Was Cinderella`s slipper really a glass slipper or was it made of fur?

 Titel: Passages from Arabia Deserta
Schrijver: Doughty, G.M.
Uitgever: Pneguin, 1983, 3e

 Staat: Goede staat van conservering

Omschrijving
C.M. Doughty spent over a year wandering Northern Arabia gathering material for this extraordinary book. Eccentric, redolent with sharply observerd life, anecdote, local colour and telling detail, Arabia Deserta is not only a Victorian traveller`s interpretation of a mysterious - and largely unfathomed - Orient, but also a daring experiment in the use of language at its richest and most highly wrought. This Penguin edition is a selection from the orgininal massive work, edited by the distinguished Edward Garnett.
