New PDF release: De vrouw in het wit (Dutch Edition)

By Wilkie Collins,Joop Wigman

ISBN-10: 9074622046

ISBN-13: 9789074622042

'Dit is het verhaal van wat het geduld van een vrouw kan verdragen, en van wat de vastberadenheid van een guy kan bereiken.'
'De vrouw in het wit' was once een doorslaand succes toen het verscheen in 1860 en heeft sindsdien niets aan kracht verloren; vanaf het second dat 'de vrouw' in een maanverlichte nacht verschijnt aan Walter Hartright, wordt de lezer geboeid door de mysterieuze verwikkelingen rond de jonge Laura Fairlie en vele andere meesterlijk getekende en onvergetelijke karakters.

Wilkie Collins (1824-1882) used to be een tijdgenoot en vriend van Charles Dickens. Zijn roman 'De vrouw in het wit' is een hoogtepunt uit de Victoriaanse literatuur en wordt beschouwd als een van de eerste thrillers uit de historie.

'The girl in white' verscheen in het jaar 1859 als roman in afleveringen in het tijdschrift the entire 12 months around, dat kort tevoren was once opgericht door Charles Dickens. Het used to be de tweede roman die in dat tijdschrift verscheen, na A story of 2 towns van Dickens zelf. De verkoop van het tijdschrift steeg met sprongen in de periode dat Collins' roman erin verscheen. Lange rijen vormden zich voor de verkooppunten en Gladstone zei een theatervoorstelling af om het verhaal te kunnen lezen. Collins used to be in één klap een beroemdheid en werd door sommigen beschouwd als een serieuze rivaal voor zijn vriend Dickens.

Het plot van 'De vrouw in het wit' is deels gebaseerd op de werkelijk voorgevallen geschiedenis van de Franse Markiezin de Drouhault, die tijdens een reis werd gedrogeerd en onder een valse naam in het gevang werd gezet. Aangezien males veronderstelde dat ze used to be overleden, erfde haar broer haar vermogen. De markiezin zag na twee jaar gevangenschap kans een short te schrijven naar een kennis, en de zaak werd alsnog opgelost. Met dit ruwe materiaal was once de succesroman die 'De vrouw in het wit' zou worden uiteraard nog niet geschreven. Collins werd hogelijk geprezen als een meester in de constructie van geraffineerde plots. Hij moest hierbij ook rekening houden met de bijzondere vereisten die publicatie in afleveringen met zich meebracht: iedere aflevering moest eindigen op een wijze die de spanning vasthield en was once gebonden aan een aantal pagina's.

De roman ontrolt zich zorgvuldig en gestaag in de verhalen (in totaal zijn er veertien) die worden verteld door de verschillende hoofdpersonen: In de eerste plaats Walter Hartright, de eenvoudige tekenleraar die zijn hart verliest aan de mooie Laura Fairlie; dan is er Marian Halcombe, Laura's verstandige halfzus; familienotaris Gilmore; heer des huizes Frederick Fairlie en final yet no longer least de doortrapte Italiaanse count number Fosco; stuk voor stuk karakters die door Collins op meesterlijke wijze worden getekend. Ieder van rooster kent een deel van de waarheid omtrent het sluwe bedrog waarvan Laura Fairlie het slachtoffer is, en het komplot wordt stukje bij beetje aan de lezer onthuld.

Read e-book online Birkenkreuz 6: Band 6 - Das Komplott (German Edition) PDF

By Stefan Jahnke

Das Buch

Judäa, 27 Jahre vor dem Beginn der heutigen Zeitrechnung.
Tuchmacher Josua ärgert sich gemeinsam mit dem Schreiner Karim über Willkür und zu hohe Steuern. Urda, die durch günstige Heirat zur Römerin gewordene Barbarin, nutzt wie viele der von Herodes geduldeten Siedler seinesgleichen aus und trotzt damit Kromos, dem Stadthalter Jerusalems. Die Gesetze sind eindeutig. Wer sich auflehnt, wird bestraft, meist gar hingerichtet. Die Sehnsucht der Menschen Judäas nach Erlösung lässt sie an Wunder glauben.
Als nach einer Vollstreckung ein Verurteilter lebend am Steilhang gefunden wird, glaubt Urda, sich den Stadthalter gewogen stimmen zu können. Doch sie begeht Fehler, zerstört mit ihrer Tobsucht die Existenz des Salbenhändlers und ermordet den alten Sternendeuter, als er ihren baldigen Tod, einen Sternenschweif und die Entstehung eines neuen Glaubens sieht.
Die Prophezeiung bleibt nicht verborgen. Herodes lässt noch nach Jahren Schandenkinder töten, führt Zählungen durch und hat Angst vor der Geburt eines neuen Königs.
In jenen Tagen wird Josuas Tochter Maria schwanger. Um sie vor den Häschern zu schützen, ersinnen er und Karim einen Plan. Sie soll einen Verwandten des Schreiners heiraten, den Baumeister Josef aus Betlehem.
Nahm so die Geschichte vom Birkenkreuz ihren Anfang?
