Release: 2021-06-07
Editor: Unknown
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Paradise Lost is the most complete and important epic poem in the English language, and it was written by a singular poet, polyglot and with a careful classical education, who had to live one of the most turbulent periods in the history of England: the Civil War, the Cromwell Republic, and the monarchical restoration, all in the middle decades of the seventeenth century. John Milton worked on the project of this great epic and "encyclopedic" poem for at least a couple of decades, his sources of inspiration being very diverse: the Bible, the Virgilian Aeneid, Ariosto's Orlando furioso, Dante's Divine Comedy, etc. The central theme of the work is the fall of man into sin and the loss of Paradise, but for a proper reading the epic character of the work must be taken into account, something that Milton never forgets.

Oil Addiction

Oil Addiction

Available:
Release: 2004
Editor: Universal-Publishers
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Totally addicted to oil, Man in his industrial adventure has transformed nearly all the Earth's ecosystems into "egosystems" designed to serve only his own needs and desires, at the expense of all other species. He persists despite the irreversible damage he is causing to the environment. He has already disrupted the Earth's thermostats. Western society has reached the "Age of Excess," which will last only as long as there is still fossil energy to fuel it. The Earth cannot keep up with Man's demand for natural resources. Her hydrocarbon reserves are shrinking rapidly and by 2010, global production will begin to decrease, setting off a period of unprecedented planetary disorder and turmoil. Today the United States must import most of the oil it needs from faraway countries. Therein lies a terrible paradox: the power of America is rooted in dependency! The free enterprise system that it is imposing on the rest of the world cannot solve this paradoxical situation; it will only amplify it and hasten destabilization. It is high time to wonder whether we in the West, in our suicidal quest for energy, are not running the risk of losing control of the course of our history. The invasion of Iraq by the United States military, in lockstep with American corporations, is a distressing and reprehensible step in this direction.

Release: 2016-02-09
Editor: Knopf Canada
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In a major suspense novel set to surpass the internationally bestselling An Instance of the Fingerpost comes a dazzling story of youth, love and murderous ambition--a novel of time travel spanning three beautifully detailed worlds: the intellectual spires of Oxford in 1960, an ancient Arcadian world, and a dystopian future. In 1960, Henry Lytten is an Oxford don who dabbles in espionage and fiction writing. Rosie Wilson is the quick-witted, curious 15-year-old girl who feeds Professor Lytten's cat. Several hundred years in the future, living in a dystopian society on the Isle of Mull, is Angela Meerson--a brilliant psychomathematician who has discovered the world-changing potential of a powerful new machine. Somewhere, sometime, is Jay--a scholar's apprentice in an idyllic, pastoral land. Who these people really are, and how their stories come together, will be revealed in Iain Pears's fascinating great puzzle of a novel.
