    Budapest Scientific - A Guidebook

    Hargittai István
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    This guidebook introduces the reader to the visible memorabilia of science and scientists in Budapest - statues, busts, plaques, buildings, and other artefacts. According to the Hungarian-American Nobel laureate Albert Szent-Györgyi, this metropolis atthe crossroads of Europe has a special atmosphere of respect for science. It has been the venue of numerous scientific achievements and the cradle, literally, of many individuals who in Hungary, and even more beyond its borders, became world-renownedcontributors to science and culture.Six of the eight chapters of the book cover the Hungarian Nobel laureates, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the university, the medical school, agricultural sciences, and technology and engineering. One chapter is about selected secondary schools fromwhich seven Nobel laureates (Szent-Györgyi, de Hevesy, Wigner, Gabor, Harsanyi, Olah, and Kertész) and the five Martians of Science (von Kármán, Szilard, Wigner, von Neumann, and Teller) had graduated. The concluding chapter is devoted to scientistmartyrs of the Holocaust.

    Hargittai István

    The Nobel Prizes enjoy enormous prestige throughout the world. Every year, science is propelled into the limelight, and in October, when the prizes are announced, and December, when they are awarded at a ceremony in Stockholm, a chosen few scientistsacquire celebrity status and their science receives wide coverage in the news media. First awarded in 1901, the Nobel Prize remains the only science prize widely recognized by the general public. What sort of scientists become Nobel laureates? How arethey chosen? Are there features common to them, and to their prize-winning research? These sorts of questions have long intrigued Istvan Hargittai and seeking answers, he began interviewing Nobel prize-winning scientists about their careers. Some 70laureates, and a similar number of other distinguished scientists, have been interviewed, most of them during the late 1990s, and the result is this remarkable book. Written for a general readership, The Road to Stockholm illuminates the nature ofscientific discovery, the Nobel Prize selection process, the factors common to award-winning research, and the effects of the Nobel Prize on science itself. Here are stories of scientists who overcame adversity, eventually to win the Prize

T. Stead*Wide-ranging introduction considers the reasons for the book's popularity, 'the double' and psychoanalytic interpretations, crime, sex, class and urbanism in the 1880s, the Gothic and Modernism*Full notes, including details of the initial responses of Stevensons' contemporaries such as John Addington Symonds, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Rider Haggard*Up-to-date bibliographyNew to this edition*Three short stories: 'The Body Snatcher', 'Markheim', 'Olalla', and one essay, 'A Gossip on Romance'*Three appendixes containing extracts from contemporary writers on psychological disorder (Henry Maudsley, Frederic Myers, W. T. Stead)*New bibliography*New chronology*New notes'Instantly the spirit of hell awoke in me and raged...I was suddenly struck through the heart by a cold thrill of terror.'Stevenson's short novel, published in 1886, became an instant classic. It was a Gothic horror that originated in a feverish nightmare, whose hallucinatory setting in the murky back streets of London gripped a nation mesmerized by crime and violence. Therespectable doctor's mysterious relationship with his disreputable associate is finally revealed in one of the most original and thrilling endings in English literature.In addition to Jekyll and Hyde, this edition also includes a number of short stories and essays written by Stevenson in the 1880s, minor masterpieces of fiction and comment: 'The Body Snatcher', 'Markheim', and 'Olalla' feature grave-robbing, a sinisterdouble, and degeneracy, while 'A Chapter on Dreams' and 'A Gossip on Romance' discuss artistic creation and the 'romance' form. Appendixes provide extracts from contemporary writings on personality disorder, which set Stevenson's tale in its fullhistorical context.

  • Cousin Phyllis (Owc) * 2010

    Cousin Phyllis (Owc) * 2010

    Gaskell,Elizabeth
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *One of the most popular of Victorian novelists, Gaskell's short stories are no less attractive, and in the novella-length Cousin Phillis she wrote a masterpiece of the genre.*In addition to Cousin Phillis, this unique selection brings together five varied and representative stories written during the 1850s for Dickens's periodical Household Words to provide the best compact introduction to Gaskell's short fiction.*Heather Glen's illuminating introduction is the first to offer extended consideration of Gaskell as a writer of short stories and it includes original discussion of the status and history of the short story in the early nineteenth-century and Gaskell'spre-eminence in developing the potentialities of the genre. She sets each story in the context of their original periodical publication and discusses them as highly readable and sophisticated works of art.*Includes chronology, bibliography, and invaluable notes.'I see her now - cousin Phillis. The westering sun shone full upon her, and made a slanting stream of light into the room within.'Elizabeth Gaskell has long been one of the most popular of Victorian novelists, yet in her lifetime her shorter fictions were equally well loved, and they are among the most accomplished examples of the genre. The novella-length Cousin Phillis is alyrical depiction of a vanishing way of life and a girl's disappointment in love: deceptively simple, its undercurrent of feeling leaves an indelible impression. The other five stories in this selection were all written during the 1850s for Dickens'speriodical Household Words. They range from a quietly original tale of urban poverty and a fallen woman in 'Lizzie Leigh' to an historical tale of a great family in 'Morton Hall'

    Against Nature (Owc)

    Joris-Karl Huysmans
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    `It will be the biggest fiasco of the year - but I don't care a damn! It will be something nobody has ever done before, and I shall have said what I had to say.'As Joris -Karl Huysmans announced in 1884, Against Nature was fated to be a novel like no other. Resisting the models of classic nineteenth-century fiction, it focuses on the attempts of its anti-hero, the hypersensitive neurotic and aesthete, DesEsseintes, to escape Paris and the vulgarity of modern life. Holed up in his private museum of high taste, he offers Huysmans's readers a treasure trove of cultural delights which anticipates many of the strains of modernism in its appreciation ofBaudelaire, Moreau, Redon, Mallarmé and Poe. This new translation is supplemented by indispensable notes which enhance the understanding of a highly allusive work.

    Rob Roy (Owc) (2009) *

    Scott,Walter
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The only accurate text, using Scott's revisionsFor the most popular of his Scottish romances, published at the end of 1817, Scott drew on the legends and historical anecdotes about Rob Roy MacGregor he had collected in his youth. The famous outlaw is only one of a series of vivid characters who casttheir spell of the novel's hero, Frank Osbaldistone, on his journey through the wild northern territories of the new United Kingdom. Banished from his father's house, falling hopelessly in love with the spirited Diana Vernon, Frank becomes involved in heconspiracy surrounding the disastrous Jacobite rising of 1715. His adventures take him to `MacGregor's country', across the Highland Line, where he finds cruelty, heartbreak, and some unlikely friends.By turns thrilling and comic, Rob Roy contains Scott's most sophisticated treatment of the Scottish Highlands as an imaginary space where the modern and the primitive come together. Newly edited from the `Magnum Opus' text of 1830, this edition includesfull explanatory notes and a critical introduction exploring the originality and complexity of Scott's achievement.

Confident that she knows best, Emma schemes to find a suitable husband for her pliant friend Harriet, onlyto discover that she understands the feelings of others as little as she does her own heart.
