Book excerpt: Special 70th Anniversary American Edition A new translation by writer and poet Peter Hargitai "Writer and poet Peter Hargitai, working on an English translation of Utas es holdvilag [Traveler and the Moonlight] in 1988, met with Szerb's widow, Klara, curious to know whether there had been real-life models for the novel's characters-particularly for Tamas and Eva, who intrigued him above all the others. In answer, Klara Szerb pointed out a framed photograph on a bookshelf: 'a youngish man with a pale, aristocratic, melancholy face.' 'This is Tamas, ' Mrs. Szerb said. 'My husband's beloved schoolmate.' 'And Eva? Who is Eva?' I asked. She held up that very picture. 'This is also Eva. Tamas and Eva are one and the same.' Klara Szerb went on to insist that Hargitai keep the secret of Tamas and Eva's single biographical precedent until after her death. And there we have a clue, not only to the mysterious androgyny of Tamas and Eva, and to the sexually unconventional nature of Mihaly's relationship with them, but also perhaps to an unresolved chapter from Szerb's past, one that held mysteries potent enough to give rise to a novel."

Download or read Journey to the Abyss PDF, written by Harry Kessler and published by Vintage. This book was released on 2011-11-15 with total page 960 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These fascinating, never-before-published early diaries of Count Harry Kessler—patron, museum director, publisher, cultural critic, soldier, secret agent, and diplomat—present a sweeping panorama of the arts and politics of Belle Époque Europe, a glittering world poised to be changed irrevocably by the Great War. Kessler’s immersion in the new art and literature of Paris, London, and Berlin unfolds in the first part of the diaries. This refined world gives way to vivid descriptions of the horrific fighting on the Eastern and Western fronts of World War I, the intriguing private discussions among the German political and military elite about the progress of the war, as well as Kessler’s account of his role as a diplomat with a secret mission in Switzerland. Profoundly modern and often prescient, Kessler was an erudite cultural impresario and catalyst who as a cofounder of the avant-garde journal Pan met and contributed articles about many of the leading artists and writers of the day. In 1903 he became director of the Grand Ducal Museum of Arts and Crafts in Weimar, determined to make it a center of aesthetic modernism together with his friend the architect Henry van de Velde, whose school of design would eventually become the Bauhaus. When a public scandal forced his resignation in 1906, Kessler turned to other projects, including collaborating with the Austrian writer Hugo von Hofmannsthal and the German composer Richard Strauss on the opera Der Rosenkavalier and the ballet The Legend of Joseph, which was performed in 1914 by the Ballets Russes in London and Paris. In 1913 he founded the Cranach-Presse in Weimar, one of the most important private presses of the twentieth century. The diaries present brilliant, sharply etched, and often richly comical descriptions of his encounters, conversations, and creative collaborations with some of the most celebrated people of his time: Otto von Bismarck, Paul von Hindenburg, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Richard Strauss, Igor Stravinsky, Sergei Diaghilev, Vaslav Nijinsky, Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis, Sarah Bernhardt, Friedrich Nietzsche, Rainer Marie Rilke, Paul Verlaine, Gordon Craig, George Bernard Shaw, Harley Granville-Barker, Max Klinger, Arnold Böcklin, Max Beckmann, Aristide Maillol, Auguste Rodin, Edgar Degas, Éduard Vuillard, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, Ida Rubinstein, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Pierre Bonnard, and Walther Rathenau, among others. Remarkably insightful, poignant, and cinematic in their scope, Kessler’s diaries are an invaluable record of one of the most volatile and seminal moments in modern Western history.

Book excerpt: A Journey with Two Maps begins with an anecdote: one afternoon, Eavan Boland saw one of her mother's paintings for sale in a gallery, signed by her famous teacher. It is the starting point for an exploration of concepts of art and womanhood, of what it means to be a woman poet, finding her own voice within a tradition. Boland's discussion is both critical and deeply personal, an account of her development as a poet that traces her experiences as a woman, wife and mother in the light of influences such as Adrienne Rich, Elizabeth Bishop, Gwendolyn Brooks and Sylvia Plath. Boland considers the ways in which influences themselves may be changed as a tradition is remade. In the final part of the book, Letter to a Young Woman Poet', she addresses an unseen poet of the future who will redraw the maps once more, remaking the past and the present.

In a new Dark Ages, legends about the ancient people have spread everywhere. Civilization settled into a new normal. Leandra is the heir to the throne of a small country called Indiga. Her royal parents sent her away as a baby for her safety, and her adoptive parents took her far from Indiga and settled in a village called Jabethin. She grew up thinking she was a country girl named Brina. She is happy living a simple country life. Vail, a man from Indiga, travels to the small village of Jabethin on a mission concerning Leandra. He is attacked near his destination by a strange hooded man. Brina finds him in the woods and brings help from Jabethin. Keeping his mission a secret, Vail finds himself falling in love with Brina, not knowing she is Leandra. A man named Kerr is sent to bring Leandra back home because the king is dying. Someone doesn't want him to succeed and sends several men ahead of Kerr to various locations, including the man coerced into the mission against his will.
