First written in response to a JACT survey of over 100 schools, and now endorsed by OCR, this textbook has become a standard resource for students in the UK and for readers across the world who are looking for a clear and thorough introduction to the language of the ancient Greeks. Revised throughout and enhanced by coloured artwork and text features, this edition will support the new OCR specification for Classical Greek (first teaching 2016). Part 1 covers the basics and is self-contained, with its own reference section. It covers the main declensions, a range of active tenses and a vocabulary of 250 Greek words to be learned. Pupil confidence is built up by constant consolidation of the material covered. After the preliminaries, each chapter concentrates on stories with one source or subject: Aesop, Homer's Odyssey and Alexander the Great, providing an excellent introduction to Greek culture alongside the language study. Written by a long-time school teacher and examiner, this two-part course is based on experience of what pupils find difficult, concentrating on the essentials and on the understanding of principles in both accidence and syntax: minor irregularities are postponed and subordinated so that the need for rote learning is reduced. It aims to be user-friendly, but also to give pupils a firm foundation for further study.

Das erfolgreichste Buch zur Kunst der letzten fünfzig Jahre - jetzt neu auflegt im FISCHER Taschenbuch! Mit seinem legendären Buch ›Sehen. Das Bild der Welt in der Bilderwelt‹ lehrte John Berger uns Anfang der 1970er Jahre, Bilder neu zu sehen. Er analysiert Gemälde nicht isoliert in einer Welt von musealer Ewigkeit, sondern als Gebrauchsmuster der modernen Gesellschaft, die vor allem den weiblichen Körper zur Reklame benutzt. John Berger, der große europäische Erzähler und Essayist, feiert im November 2016 seinen 90. Geburtstag. Seine Essays zu Kunst und Fotografie sind aus der Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr wegzudenken. Meisterhaft finden seine Erzählungen und Romane eine sinnliche Antwort auf die Frage, wie wir heute leben. »Es gibt niemals genug von John Berger!« Tilda Swinton

Trudi, die älteste Tochter von Marie und Michel, ist der ganze Stolz ihrer Eltern und träumt von der großen Liebe. Auf der Hochzeit von Trudis Freundin geschieht das Entsetzliche: Michel wird ermordet!

Patroklos, ein in Ungnade gefallener Prinz im Knabenalter, wird ins Exil nach Phthia geschickt, wo er, als einer unter vielen, im Schatten des Königs Peleus und seines Sohnes Achill einsam und unbeachtet lebt, bis Achill sich eines Tages seiner annimmt. Die zaghafte Annährung entwickelt sich bald zu einer unerschütterlichen Freundschaft. Seite an Seite wachsen Achill und Patroklos zu jungen Männern heran, und bald erblüht eine zarte Liebe zwischen ihnen. Der Friede wird jedoch jäh zerstört, als Paris Helena aus Sparta entführt und sich die Männer Griechenlands zum Kampf gegen Troja versammeln. Verführt von der Prophezeiung seiner ruhmreichen Bestimmung, schließt sich Achill ihnen an. Patroklos, innerlich von Angst und Liebe zerrissen, folgt Achill in den zehn Jahre währenden Krieg, nicht ahnend, dass er das Schicksal seines geliebten Freundes in die Hände der Götter geben muss.

Tauchen Sie ein in das vibrierende New York der 30er und 40er Jahre, folgen Sie einer unvergesslichen Heldin in eine Zeit, in der alles auf dem Spiel steht. New York – von der Marinewerft in Brooklyn zu den schillernden Nachtclubs in Manhattan, von den Villen auf Long Island zu den Absteigen in der Bronx. 1942 sind die Männer an der Front, die Frauen stehen in der Fabrik. Aber Anna möchte ein besseres Leben. Seitdem der Vater verschwunden ist, sorgt sie für ihre Mutter und die pflegebedürftige Schwester. Während Anna den Vater nicht vergessen kann, verfolgt sie bestimmt ihren großen Traum: Unter die gigantischen Kriegsschiffe an den Docks möchte sie tauchen, um sie zu reparieren. Ein Beruf zu gefährlich für eine Frau – genauso wie die New Yorker Unterwelt, in der sich die Spur ihres Vaters verlor. Der Pulitzer-Preisträgerin und New York Times-Bestsellerautorin Jennifer Egan ist ein Meisterwerk mit erzählerischem Sog, mitreißender Atmosphäre und unvergesslichen Figuren gelungen – ein großes Zeitpanorama!
