Jack Whyte has written a lyrical epic, retelling the myths behind the boy who would become the Man Who Would Be King--Arthur Pendragon. He has shown us, as Diana Gabaldon said, "the bone beneath the flesh of legend." In his last book in this series, we witnessed the young king pull the sword from the stone and begin his journey to greatness. Now we reach the tale itself-how the most shining court in history was made. Clothar is a young man of promise. He has been sent from the wreckage of Gaul to one of the few schools remaining, where logic and rhetoric are taught along with battle techniques that will allow him to survive in the cruel new world where the veneer of civilization is held together by barbarism. He is sent by his mentor on a journey to aid another young man: Arthur Pendragon. He is a man who wants to replace barbarism with law, and keep those who work only for destruction at bay. He is seen, as the last great hope for all that is good. Clothar is drawn to this man, and together they build a dream too perfect to last--and, with a special woman, they share a love that will nearly destroy them all... The name of Clothar may be unknown to modern readers, for tales change in the telling through centuries. But any reader will surely know this heroic young man as well as they know the man who became his king. Hundreds of years later, chronicles call Clothar, the Lance Thrower, by a much more common name. That of Lancelot.

Beginning with The Skystone, the first in his riveting Camulod Chronicles, Jack Whyte has embarked on an ambitious and remarkable re-telling of the Arthurian cycle, giving us a fresh and compelling take on a story that has been beloved for centuries. The Eagle brings us at last to the heart of the tale, the creation of fabled Camelot and the love story that enshrined its glory. Whyte takes us into the minds and lives of Arthur, Guinevere, and Lancelot, three astonishing but fallible people who were bound together by honor, loyalty, and love. Three who created the glory that was Britain's shining dream...and, some say, caused its downfall. The Gaulish nobleman Clothar—known in our time as Lancelot—is drawn to the young High King's court by tales of honor and nobility, where he meets a man whose love of law matches his own. More, he finds in Arthur a life-long friend whose dream of uniting the people of Britain in peace Clothar embraces. And Clothar meets Arthur's queen, a wondrous beauty whose passion and ideals match her husband's. Together they work to bring Arthur's dream to life. But dark forces rise in opposition to Arthur's plans for creating this noble island nation and it is hard to tell friend from foe in the swirling chaos that ensues. Many tales have been told of the dream that shined and died. This one will astonish even the most jaded.

Un diciassettenne fortemente obeso, carico di complessi e amareggiato dagli apprezzamenti offensivi dei compagni di scuola, sfoga la propria frustrazione nel cibo, creando così un circolo vizioso che sembra non avere fine. L'occasionale e fortunato incontro con l'intera produzione dei Queen provoca un integrale cambiamento di stile. Le immagini dei quattro musicisti, il dialogo interiore che s'innesca con Freddie Mercury e i consigli di una zia esperta di vita e saggia più del famoso grillo, innescheranno una reazione che provocherà una metamorfosi fiabesca. Andrea troverà sesso e amore, guadagnerà in stile, crederà nei propri mezzi e sarà pronto per confrontarsi col mondo. In un succedersi di avventure non sempre fortunate, il protagonista diventerà un uomo di successo, anche se, spesso, i lati deboli di un carattere che si trascina dietro i frutti di un'adolescenza infelice, emergeranno per creargli ostacoli e insicurezze.

Cura e traduzione di Luigi SquarzinaEdizione integrale con testo inglese a fronteNasce con Il mercante di Venezia, tra le «tragicommedie» più note e rappresentate di Shakespeare, una delle prime grandi, plastiche figure del drammaturgo inglese, quella dell’ebreo Shylock, implacabile nell’esigere, come convenuto per contratto, la «libbra di carne» del mercante Antonio. Al di là di ogni sospetto di antisemitismo (estraneo alla tollerante multilateralità shakespeariana) Shylock diviene personaggio emblematico di una mutazione epocale che, mettendo in crisi i tradizionali valori “cavallereschi”, introduce la cultura dell’intraprendenza economica, dell’idolatria del denaro e dei guadagni, in una Venezia centro di traffici e di affari. A tutto ciò si contrappongono il mondo idillico di Belmonte e la fiabesca storia d’amore di Bassanio e Porzia che non riescono comunque a fugare il malinconico senso di una svolta ormai inderogabile.«Dall’uomo che non ha musica dentro di sé, e non si commuove all’armonia dei suoni, aspèttati tradimenti, infingimenti e rapine. I moti del suo animo sono opachi come la notte, le sue passioni nere come l’Erebo. Non fidartene. Ascolta la musica.»William Shakespearenacque a Stratford on Avon nel 1564. Nel 1592 era già conosciuto come autore di teatro e fra il 1594 e il 1595 vennero rappresentati almeno quattro suoi drammi. Fece parte dell’importante compagnia del Lord Ciambellano, che godette di ininterrotto favore a Corte prendendo sotto Giacomo i il nome di King’s Men. Morì a Stratford nel 1616. La Newton Compton ha pubblicato le opere di Shakespeare in volumi singoli e nel volume unico Tutto il teatro.
