Fabeln von Jean de la Fontaine

fabula Verlag Hamburg


»Dem Raben hüpft das Herz vor Lust. Der Stimme Zier

Zu künden, tut mit stolzem Sinn

Er weit den Schnabel auf; da – fällt der Käse hin.

Der Fuchs nimmt ihn und spricht: ›Mein Freundchen, denkt an mich!

Ein jeder Schmeichler mästet sich

Vom Fette des, der willig auf ihn hört.

Die Lehr' ist zweifellos wohl – einen Käse wert!‹«

Jean de la Fontaine (1621–1695) legt mit seinen Fabeln den Finger in die Wunde menschlicher Verfehlungen. Humoristisch zeigt er auf, dass Selbstüberschätzung, Eitelkeit und Gier sich stets rächen. Diese Ausgabe enthält die ersten sechs Bände seiner zwölfbändigen Fabelreihe.

Born near Pittsburgh, Shirley Martin attended the University of Pittsburgh. After graduation she taught school for one year, then obtained a position as a flight attendant with Eastern Airlines. Based in Miami, she met her future husband there. After raising three sons, she devoted her time to writing, something she had always wanted to do. With a vivid imagination and a love of storytelling, Shirley has always enjoyed writing. Her first published novel, "Destined to Love" reflects her familiarity with western Pennsylvania, where she hails from, and her love of romance writing. From this historical romance, she blossomed out to other romance genres. "One More Tomorrow" is a vampire romance, one her publisher dubbed "a sizzling seller". With several fantasy novels and novellas, her writing should appeal to just about every reader of romance. Her books have been sold at Amazon and most major book stores and have garnered great reviews. A widow, Shirley lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with her two cats.

Lassiter - Folge 2224

Bastei Entertainment | Lassiter


Die Postkutsche jagte dahin. Mit voller Kraft stemmten sich die sechs Gespannpferde ins Geschirr. Die Steigung der Straße oberhalb des Flusses war enorm. Die sandigen Wagenspuren schienen in den weißen Wolken zu enden. Lassiter beugte sich aus dem offenen Fenster nach links, zum Fluss hin. Er kniff die Augen zusammen, ließ sich den sand- und staubgeschwängerten Fahrtwind um die Ohren wehen.

Die schöne Rothaarige ihm gegenüber beobachtete ihn scheinbar beiläufig. In Wahrheit wäre sie längst über ihn hergefallen, wenn sie mit ihm allein im Abteil gewesen wäre. Die Reiter waren nur manchmal zu sehen, unten, am Fuß des Steilufers. Auf dem flachen Uferstreifen hielten sie im Tempo der Kutsche mit. Sieben Männer.

Oder sechs Männer und eine Frau? Lassiter war nicht ganz sicher. Aber eins stand für ihn fest: Über kurz oder lang würden sie angreifen...

Conjugation

BookThug


I am sitting outside at dawn on Otty Lake, where I live, in the woods. The light is coming over the trees, and each morning the poem is written as if right while it is being read.

A rough immediacy. Gap & Hum. Caesura. Syllables as musical notes.

The lyric weaving of honesty about the self—toward revelation & transformation.

My poetics has widened, here, to include more space, more primitive sounds and glyphs, less metaphor, less anecdote, more tangential conjugating…

My poetics, in its growing inclusiveness, is not sad but hopeful.

The term "conjugation" refers to more than the obvious grammatical movement of pronouns through time (I am / you are / they will be). For, in Biology, it also refers to the transfer of information between cells. And Conjugation—the new collection of poetry from Governor General’s Literary Award– and Trillium Book Award–winning poet Phil Hall—sees an open realm where individual letters inside a word are each rolling through their possibilities, from A to Z. Thereby, the language in this, Hall's eighteenth book of poetry, and the fourth to be published by BookThug, travels into and out of itself, as he says, "escaping my ego, while revealing, word by slightly different word, my deeper connections and disconnections to things—to what used to be called poetry's 'subjects.'"

Replete with images of the natural world and in some cases, the mechanisms that transform it–horses, leaping fish, trees, canals and locks—Hall has created in Conjugation at once a return to the nature/nurture elements that have wound their way through his earlier collections, but also a versed ode to the discouragement that many Canadians have felt about the progression of their country and government over the past number of years.

As much care was taken with the writing of this collection as the shaping of the poems themselves. Hall’s poems are shaped into a form of free-verse terza rima (2-line / 1-line alternating pattern), where spaces between phrases and words allow the syntax to be infused with floods of words from other angles. This results in a quilting or cross-hatching or braiding effect that ensures that readers will be captured in the flow of Conjugation's wordplay and the evolution that takes place through its pages.

Praise for Conjugation:

"His gaze is not simply inward: these meditative poems take in the rural landscape of Eastern Ontario, the words of writers whose influence he honours and the nature of language itself. Like an auto mechanic working on an engine, Hall takes words and phrases apart, examines how they work, and tinkers." —Barb Carey, Toronto Star
