Essays and Lectures – Oscar Wilde

Gepost op 28 februari 2013 – 10:46 in: Gratis iPad boeken

Contents include: The Rise of Historical Criticism, The English Renaissance of Art, House Decoration, Art and the Handicraftman, Lecture to Art Students, London Models and Poems in Prose. Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and author of short stories. Known for his barbed wit, he was one of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day. Wilde made his reputation in the theatre world with a series of highly popular plays. Lady Windermere’s Fan (1893) like many of Wilde’s comedies is a biting satire on the morals of Victorian society, particularly marriage. A Woman of No Importance (1893) is a testimony of Wilde’s wit and his brand of dark comedy. An Ideal Husband (1895) revolves around blackmail and political corruption, and touches on the themes of public and private honour. The Importance of Being Earnest (1895) is one of his best loved plays, a comedy of manners. The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890) is his only published novel. Other works include: The Canterville Ghost (1887), The Happy Prince and Other Stories (1888), Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime and Other Stories (1891), A House of Pomegranates (1891), The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898) and De Profundis (1905)

With All My Love – Patricia Scanlan

Gepost op 28 februari 2013 – 02:27 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

On a crystal clear Mediterranean day, Briony McAllister sits playing with her four-year-old daughter, Katie, while she waits for her mother, Valerie, to join them. Valerie has recently moved to a picturesque town in southern Spain to finally leave behind her turbulent past and find a peace that has always eluded her. Briony has no idea that in a few moments’ time her relationship with her mother will change irrevocably. As Katie plays, Briony pulls from her bag an old photo album, found in a box in her mother’s new home. As she begins to study the faded photos, a letter falls to the ground. It is addressed to her. My Darling Briony, it begins. As Briony reads the words with mounting shock, realisation dawns. Her mother lied to her about what happened with her beloved grandmother Tessa all those years ago – and denied Briony that most precious of relationships, the type of relationship Valerie now enjoys with Katie. The lives of three generations of women are set to change forever as the past is revisited and the truth unfolds through the undelivered letters Tessa wrote to Briony over the years. Secrets, lies, betrayals and sacrifices – the complex bonds between mothers, daughters and granddaughters are intricately explored as Patricia Scanlan takes us into the hearts and homes of a family at war.

Chaos in Death – J. D. Robb

Gepost op 27 februari 2013 – 23:50 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

Eve Dallas' latest case is starting off a little more bizarre than usual – a police sketch of a killer based on eye-witness testimony reveals he has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects – all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims. But who had the motive? More importantly, what kind of rogue science are these healers practicing?
