This landmark collection of essays by one of the world's greatest living authors makes Durs Grünbein's wide-ranging and multifaceted prose available in English for the first time, and is a welcome complement to Ashes for Breakfast, his first book-length collection of poetry in English. Covering two decades, The Bars of Atlantis unfurls the entire breadth and depth of Grünbein's essayistic genius. Memoiristic and autobiographical pieces that introduce Grünbein, the man and the author, and tell the story of the making of a poet and thinker toward the end of a century marked by global political strife, unprecedented human suffering, long decades of totalitarian rule, and, in its final quarter, the dawn of a new, post–Cold War world order; essays that focus on Grünbein's major philosophical and aesthetic concerns, such as the intersection of art and science, literature and biology; extended reflections on the existential, cultural, political, and ethical import of the poet's craft in the contemporary world; and, finally, explorations of the meaning of classical antiquity for the present—all contribute to making.

The first English translation of Germany's leading contemporary poet. ...what is the whole surreal jokeshop of terrors compared to the infinitely chance little tricks of a poem. --from "MonoLogical Poem #1" Born in Dresden in 1962, Durs Grünbein is the most significant and successful poet to emerge from the former East Germany, a place where, he wrote, "the best refuge was a closed mouth." In unsettling, often funny, sometimes savage lines whose vivid images reflect his deep love for and connection with the visual arts, Grunbein is reinventing German poetry and taking on the most pressing moral concerns of his generation. Brilliantly edited and translated by the English poet Michael Hofmann, Ashes for Breakfast expertly introduces Germany's most highly acclaimed contemporary poet to American readers.

A thrill-seeking Harvard linguistics professor and an ultrasecret branch of the Catholic Church go head-to-head in a race to uncover the secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. The ruins of the technologically-advanced, eerily-enigmatic ancient civilization promise their discoverer fame, fortune, and power... but hold earth-shattering secrets about the origin of man. While world-famous linguist and archaeologist, Thomas Lourds, is shooting a film that dramatizes his flamboyant life and scientific achievements, satellites spot impossibly ancient ruins along the Spanish coast. Lourds knows exactly what it means: the Lost Continent of Atlantis has been found. The race is on, and Lourds' challengers will do anything to get there first. Whoever controls the Lost Continent will control the world. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

When a girl was wrong about a guy before… No one trusts Princess Adria. Not even her beloved big brother. Disgraced and discouraged after saving Kai who turned out to be the enemy, she’s still shocked when she finds out about her betrothal to a slimy prince from another ocean kingdom. But what does she know? Clearly, she can’t choose the right kind of male on her own. When she’s kidnapped by accident, she realizes she has no choices at all. Or does she? Adria finds herself back in the clutches of Kai, the guy she’d given her heart to and who’d then betrayed her and her family. Stuck as a prisoner in a glacial kingdom of ice and evil, she learns everything isn’t rainbow fish and roses. She must become a strong, independent princess who commands respect and is willing to sacrifice to save her family. But by sacrificing herself is she giving away the kingdom she loves? This is the fifth full-length novel in the Lost Daughters of Atlantis young adult fantasy action adventure novel series. The prequel to this story, Atlantis Twisting Tides, is free. Each of the books stand alone. “In this chilling addition to the Daughters of Atlantis series, Allie Burton plunges us into the freezing waters of despair and slavery in Atlantis Glacial Tides. Get ready for her quick wit, her fast-paced style and her attention to detail in each scene, while still giving us the feel of a sixteen-year-old girl, out of her depth, but never backing down or giving up. Ms. Burton can create nasty and nice characters as well as she can keep us wondering who is really playing on what side of good vs evil. From start to finish, this is non-stop fantasy! You may need an extra blanket to cozy up with as those frigid waters begin to feel real.” Reviewer Other books in the Atlantis series: Atlantis Riptide - free, Atlantis Red Tide, Atlantis Rising Tide, Atlantis Tide Breaker Novella, Atlantis Dark Tides, and Atlantis Twisting Tides Novella.

Stephen King, whose first novel, Carrie, was published in 1974, the year before the last U.S. troops withdrew from Vietnam, is the first hugely popular writer of the TV generation. Images from that war -- and the protests against it -- had flooded America's living rooms for a decade. Hearts in Atlantis, King's newest fiction, is composed of five interconnected, sequential narratives, set in the years from 1960 to 1999. Each story is deeply rooted in the sixties, and each is haunted by the Vietnam War. In Part One, "Low Men in Yellow Coats," eleven-year-old Bobby Garfield discovers a world of predatory malice in his own neighborhood. He also discovers that adults are sometimes not rescuers but at the heart of the terror. In the title story, a bunch of college kids get hooked on a card game, discover the possibility of protest...and confront their own collective heart of darkness, where laughter may be no more than the thinly disguised cry of the beast. In "Blind Willie" and "Why We're in Vietnam," two men who grew up with Bobby in suburban Connecticut try to fill the emptiness of the post-Vietnam era in an America which sometimes seems as hollow -- and as haunted -- as their own lives. And in "Heavenly Shades of Night Are Falling," this remarkable book's denouement, Bobby returns to his hometown where one final secret, the hope of redemption, and his heart's desire may await him. Full of danger, full of suspense, most of all full of heart, Stephen King's new book will take some readers to a place they have never been...and others to a place they have never been able to completely leave.

Durs Grünbein is the most significant poet and essayist in German today. No other modern German poet has written from such an emphatically European and global perspective, and this volume seeks to present the poet and his work to the English-speaking world in all their significance and breadth. Written by a line-up of international scholars and critics, the volume offers highly readable and wide-ranging essays on Grünbein’s substantial œuvre, complemented by specially commissioned material and an interview with the poet. It covers the German and European traditions, and engages with Grünbein’s works in the context of a number of relevant topics, such as ‘memory’, ‘urban life’, ‘mortality’, ‘love’, and ‘presence’; it also probes Grünbein’s sustained dialogue with the natural sciences and the visual arts.

What Galileo Saw

The Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century has often been called a decisive turning point in human history. It represents, for good or ill, the birth of modern science and modern ways of viewing the world. In What Galileo Saw, Lawrence Lipking offers a new perspective on how to understand what happened then, arguing that artistic imagination and creativity as much as rational thought played a critical role in creating new visions of science and in shaping stories about eye-opening discoveries in cosmology, natural history, engineering, and the life sciences. When Galileo saw the face of the Moon and the moons of Jupiter, Lipking writes, he had to picture a cosmos that could account for them. Kepler thought his geometry could open a window into the mind of God. Francis Bacon's natural history envisioned an order of things that would replace the illusions of language with solid evidence and transform notions of life and death. Descartes designed a hypothetical "Book of Nature" to explain how everything in the universe was constructed. Thomas Browne reconceived the boundaries of truth and error. Robert Hooke, like Leonardo, was both researcher and artist; his schemes illuminate the microscopic and the macrocosmic. And when Isaac Newton imagined nature as a coherent and comprehensive mathematical system, he redefined the goals of science and the meaning of genius. What Galileo Saw bridges the divide between science and art; it brings together Galileo and Milton, Bacon and Shakespeare. Lipking enters the minds and the workshops where the Scientific Revolution was fashioned, drawing on art, literature, and the history of science to reimagine how perceptions about the world and human life could change so drastically, and change forever.

When a good-looking stranger, with the odd name of Cuda, comes into her life and tells her stories, she discovers a history that stuns her. A lost princess. A lost kingdom.

But a scientist hired by Cuda’s father is determined to use her as a science experiment. Maris must decide whether to risk her life and her present human reality to join a battle under the sea. And if she doesn’t, will she ever find where she truly belongs? This is the third book in a young adult fantasy action adventure novel series. Each of the books stand alone. “I read all 3 books in the collection by Allie Burton. I read one and then I quickly purchased the other two. The way the stories tied together and how the girls realized they were sisters was enchanting. I hope there will be more books to come in this series.” Reviewer Other books in the Atlantis series: Atlantis Riptide - free, Atlantis Red Tide, Atlantis Tide Breaker, Atlantis Dark Tides, Atlantis Twisting Tides, and Atlantis Glacial Tides.
