Buszujący w zbożu

Description: Bohaterem `Buszującego w zbożu` jest szesnastoletni uczeń, Holden Caulfield, który nie mogąc pogodzić się z otaczającą go głupotą, podłością, a przede wszystkim zakłamaniem, ucieka z college`u i przez kilka dni `buszuje` po Nowym Jorku, nim wreszcie powróci do domu rodzinnego. Historia tych paru dni, którą opowiada swym barwnym językiem, jest na pierwszy rzut oka przede wszystkim zabawna, jednakże rychło spostrzegamy, że pod pozorami komizmu ważą się tutaj sprawy bynajmniej nie błahe...

The Modern Scholar: A History of Ancient Rome

Description: Of all the civilizations that have ever existed, none have inspired as much wonder and awe as Ancient Rome. No society has replicated the achievements nor enjoyed the longevity that the Roman Empire did. This course explores the world of Ancient Rome as students investigate important events and key figures of the epoch. The individual lectures will examine major themes while touching upon the fascinating details of Roman life, such as the Romans' intensely hierarchical social order. Along the way, numerous facts of cultural literacy, such as what it means to "cross the Rubicon", will be illuminated as listeners enjoy Frances Titchener's unique style and finesse. At the end of this course, students will possess a thorough understanding of Ancient Rome's legacy to the modern world, and will have fully considered the poet Vergil's assertion that the Romans' talent was to "rule mankind and make the world obey."
