Kate's Story

Kate's Story

Description: This story of a poor working-class family begins in the squalid setting of Ancoats, Manchester, in 1897. When 11-year-old Kate's father dies of consumption, the family are catapulted into destitution and the workhouse - the horrible conditions and the brutality of the overseers are graphically described, as is the sense of shame the inmates felt at being there. Kate is fortunate to go to an industrial school where she learns the skills she will need for a life in service. At 14 she finds a position as a maid in the Lamport-Smythe household where she stays for five years, enduring the long hours of the 'downstairs' life and the unwelcome attentions of the Lamport-Smythes' son. Kate's only desire is to unite her family under one roof and return to the loving family life she had known before her father's death. This she manages to do, but gradually she becomes disillusioned with her mother and her stepfather's drinking and decides to make her own happiness. This is a lively tale of homespun charm - the voice is not educated, the story in no way dramatic, but it does have an almost documentary feel of the time, with references to the suffragette movement, the death of the Queen and the First World War - and just how these developments affected the lives of the poor. The story is based on the real experiences of the author's mother, and this gives a moving sense of authenticity to the book.

Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow

Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow

Description: Over one hundred years since it was first published ‘Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow’ addresses subjects which are still relevant today – perhaps more so! Being hard up, being in the blues and being in love are just some aspects of the human condition on which Jerome K. Jerome reflects in his unique whimsical fashion. These insights are not given for the benefit of our education however, for as he says in his introduction, “This book would not elevate a cow. I cannot consciously recommend it for any useful purpose whatsoever. All I can suggest is, that when you get tired of reading ‘the best hundred books’ you may take this up for half an hour. It will be a change!”

Peter Pan nei giardini di Kensington

Peter Pan nei giardini di Kensington

Description: Questo è il racconto per adulti con cui nasce Peter Pan: la storia di un bimbetto di pochi giorni che vola via dalla finestra, arriva ai giardini di Kensington, si ferma oltre l'ora di chiusura e ha quindi accesso al mondo notturno e magico delle fate. La storia più famosa che tutti ricordiamo (e che Barrie scrisse qualche anno dopo per il teatro, e solo nel 1911 come romanzo, con il titolo Peter e Wendy) è già qui, in germe, ma con tutto il fascino incontaminato di una fiaba e di un mito colto sul nascere. Una favola leggera che racconta l'incanto e la tristezza infinita dell'infanzia: i giochi, la libertà, il senso di abbandono, l'onnipotenza e la fragilità. E lo racconta nel linguaggio di un adulto raffinato scrittore (il testo è ricco di giochi linguistici, allusioni, tocchi di humour).

How to Train Your Dragon

How to Train Your Dragon

Description: In this riotous paper-over-board farce, the timid protagonist from Cowell's picture book Hiccup: The Seasick Viking proves himself worthy of the sobriquet "Hope and Heir to the Tribe of the Hairy Hooligans." The protagonist is also given author credit (as Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III), with Cowell billed as translator "from the Old Norse." Indeed, "Hiccup" contributes an introductory note: "I was not the sort of boy who could train a dragon with a mere lifting of an eyebrow. I was not a natural at the Heroism business. I had to work at it. This is the story of becoming a Hero the Hard Way." From his initial challenge—Hiccup and his fellow warriors-in-training must each pluck a dragon from a "Dragon Nursery" where 3,000 young critters are hibernating—the likable lad faces a host of hurdles and beats tremendous odds to emerge triumphant. After selecting a tiny, toothless dragon ("I shall call [my dragon] Fireworm," says nemesis Snotface Snotlout. "What are you going to call yours, Hiccup? Sweetums? Sugarlips? Babyface?"). Hiccup tackles the chore of training the stubborn creature, which leads to some fresh, funny dialogue between the two (Hiccup has the rare ability to speak "Dragonese"). A rollicking finale finds the duo rescuing Vikings from a ravenous, mountain-size dragon. Short chapters, clever slapstick, kid-pleasing character names.

Услуги юриста - помощь в решении слишком важных задач 

Добавил admin 10 июня, 2010 20:33 News / Articles Комментариев:    

Жизнь людей, столь яркая и многообразная, по своей сути - отношения с многими другими людьми и поступки. Все же отношения и поступки, как правило, регламентируются законами. Предписания, на основе которых человек поступает определенным образом, имеют название законы. В пример миру зверей, в котором законы были установлены без учета воли зверей, в мире людском люди самостоятельно принимают правила игры, решают рука об руку, как поступать в той или же другой ситуации. Многоплановость мира людей становится его непреложным свойством, отличительной особенностью. Ситуации, в которых может оказаться человек, бывают самые разные, такие, что сознание подчас даже не может охватить гигантское количество законодательных актов, затрагивающих все сферы деятельности человека. С целью упорядочить законы, была основана особая наука – юриспруденция. Специалист, занимающийся такой наукой, назван юристом. И его деятельность на пользу людей получила название – юридические услуги. А уж в какой степени ценны эти услуги и бывают востребованы, и говорить не приходится!
