Das Lied von Eis und Feuer: Macht, Moral, Intrigen
Author: Henry Jacoby
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Wenn eine Geschichte jemals nach einer philosophischen Betrachtung verlangt hat, dann ist es "Das Lied von Eis und Feuer". Denn nie waren Intrigen, Politik und Macht komplexer und spannender miteinander verstrickt als in diesem Fantasy-Epos. George R. R. Martin lehnt die klassische Rollenaufteilung von Protagonisten gegen Antagonisten ab. Gerade weil es in dieser Geschichte keine klassische Unterteilung in Gut und B?se gibt, ist eine philosophische Untersuchung der Beweggr?nde der Personen f?r ihr Handeln interessant. Ist Familie oder Rache wichtiger? Wer sollte die Sieben K?nigreiche regieren? Darf man um der Ehre willen einen Krieg riskieren? Warum sollte der Gewinner des Throns noch moralisch handeln? "Die Philosophie bei Game of Thrones" beantwortet all diese Fragen mit Hilfe der Theorien von Aristoteles, Plato, Descartes und Machiavelli. Das Buch eignet sich hervorragend als Einf?hrung in die verschiedenen philosophischen Theorien und gibt einen tieferen Einblick in die Welt von Game of Thrones.
An Annotated Guide to Works by Theodor Geisel in All Media, Writings About Him, and Appearances of Characters and Places in the Books, Stories and Films
Author: Richard H.F. Lindemann
Category: Literary Criticism
Theodor Seuss Geisel—known worldwide as the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss—produced a body of work that spans more than 70 years. Though most often associated with children’s books, he frequently contributed cartoons and humorous essays to popular magazines, produced effective and memorable advertising campaigns (“Quick, Henry, the Flit!”), and won Oscars and Emmys for motion picture productions, animated shorts, and features. As founder and president of Beginner Books, his influence on children’s book publishing was revolutionary, especially in the field of elementary readers. Geisel’s prolific career—he wrote or contributed illustrations to more than 75 books, most of which have been reprinted repeatedly and translated worldwide—and his predilection for made-up creatures make this joint bibliography and iconography especially useful to readers and researchers. The exhaustive bibliography is arranged chronologically, providing full bibliographic information, including translations as they appear, reissue information, and descriptions of the binding. The iconography links more than 900 fictional names, places and terms to the works in which they appear. For the reader seeking a first edition of Quomodo Invidiosulus Nomine Grinchus Christi Natalem Abrogaverit (How the Grinch Stole Christmas! translated into Latin) or hoping to identify “abrasion-contusions” (race cars in If I Ran the Circus!), this work promises as much discovery as a walk down Mulberry Street.
Philip Nel takes a fascinating look into the key aspects of Seuss's career - his poetry, politics, art, marketing, and place in the popular imagination." "Nel argues convincingly that Dr. Seuss is one of the most influential poets in America. His nonsense verse, like that of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, has changed language itself, giving us new words like "nerd." And Seuss's famously loopy artistic style - what Nel terms an "energetic cartoon surrealism" - has been equally important, inspiring artists like filmmaker Tim Burton and illustrator Lane Smith. --from back cover

The World War II Editorial Cartoons of Theodor Seuss Geisel
Author: Richard H. Minear,Dr. Seuss
Publisher: New Press/ORIM
“A fascinating collection” of wartime cartoons from the beloved children’s author and illustrator (The New York Times Book Review). For decades, readers throughout the world have enjoyed the marvelous stories and illustrations of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. But few know the work Geisel did as a political cartoonist during World War II, for the New York daily newspaper PM. In these extraordinarily trenchant cartoons, Geisel presents “a provocative history of wartime politics” (Entertainment Weekly). Dr. Seuss Goes to War features handsome, large-format reproductions of more than two hundred of Geisel’s cartoons, alongside “insightful” commentary by the historian Richard H. Minear that places them in the context of the national climate they reflect (Booklist). Pulitzer Prize–winner Art Spiegelman’s introduction places Seuss firmly in the pantheon of the leading political cartoonists of our time. “A shocker—this cat is not in the hat!” —Studs Terkel
