Example in this ebook Between the 10th and 13th centuries Civilisation withdrew from Egypt and Syria, rested for a little space at Constantinople, and then passed away to the western climes of Europe. From that period these climes have been the grand laboratory in which Civilisation has wrought out refinement in every art and every science, and whence it has diffused its benefits over the earth. It has taught commerce to plough the waves of every sea with the adventurous keel; it has enabled handfuls of disciplined warriors to subdue the mighty armaments of oriental princes; and its daring sons have planted its banners amidst the eternal ice of the poles. It has cut down the primitive forests of America; carried trade into the interior of Africa; annihilated time and distance by the aid of steam; and now contemplates how to force a passage through Suez and Panama. The bounties of Civilisation are at present almost everywhere recognised. Nevertheless, for centuries has Civilisation established, and for centuries will it maintain, its headquarters in the great cities of Western Europe: and with Civilisation does Vice go hand-in-hand. Amongst these cities there is one in which contrasts of a strange nature exist. The most unbounded wealth is the neighbour of the most hideous poverty; the most gorgeous pomp is placed in strong relief by the most deplorable squalor; the most seducing luxury is only separated by a narrow wall from the most appalling misery. The crumbs which fall from the tables of the rich would appear delicious viands to starving millions; and yet those millions obtain them not! In that city there are in all districts five prominent buildings: the church, in which the pious pray; the gin-palace, to which the wretched poor resort to drown their sorrows; the pawnbroker's, where miserable creatures pledge their raiment, and their children's raiment, even unto the last rag, to obtain the means of purchasing food, and—alas! too often—intoxicating drink; the prison, where the victims of a vitiated condition of society expiate the crimes to which they have been driven by starvation and despair; and the workhouse, to which the destitute, the aged, and the friendless hasten to lay down their aching heads—and die! And, congregated together in one district of this city, in an assemblage of palaces, whence emanate by night the delicious sounds of music; within whose walls the foot treads upon rich carpets; whose sideboards are covered with plate; whose cellars contain the choicest nectar of the temperate and torrid zones; and whose inmates recline beneath velvet canopies, feast at each meal upon the collated produce of four worlds, and scarcely have to breathe a wish before they find it gratified. Alas! how appalling are these contrasts! And, as if to hide its infamy from the face of heaven, this city wears upon its brow an everlasting cloud, which even the fresh fan of the morning fails to disperse for a single hour each day! And in one delicious spot of that mighty city—whose thousand towers point upwards, from horizon to horizon, as an index of its boundless magnitude—stands the dwelling of one before whom all knees bow, and towards whose royal footstool none dares approach save with downcast eyes and subdued voice. The entire world showers its bounties upon the head of that favoured mortal; a nation of millions does homage to the throne whereon that being is exalted. The dominion of this personage so supremely blest extends over an empire on which the sun never sets—an empire greater than Jenghiz Khan achieved or Mohammed conquered. This is the parent of a mighty nation; and yet around that parent's seat the children crave for bread! To be continue in this ebook

„Ängstlich in das Dunkel starrend blieb ich stehn, verwundert, harrend ...“ „Der Rabe“ brachte Edgar Allan Poe den Durchbruch als Lyriker. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht zählt bis heute zum unvergänglichen Erbe der Dichtkunst. In 108 Versen schildert er den mitternächtlichen Besuch eines Raben bei einem Verzweifelten, dessen Geliebte Lenore starb. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Elise von Hohenhausen findet sich hier neu interpretiert und illustriert von Marta Monika Czerwinski. Der Name steht für schaurige und düstere Abgründe: Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Wegbereiter des Symbolismus und Meister des subtilen Horrors. Poes Gedichte, Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten zählen zu den großen Werken seiner Zeit.

Niemals wird sie den Tag vergessen, an dem ihre Eltern starben. Die 17-jährige Emma Carstairs war noch ein Kind, als sie damals ermordet wurden, und es herrschte Krieg. Die Wesen der Unterwelt kämpften bis aufs Blut gegeneinander, und die Schattenjäger, die Erzfeinde der Dämonen, wurden fast völlig ausgelöscht. Aber Emma glaubt bis heute nicht, dass ihre Eltern Opfer dieses dunklen Krieges wurden, sondern dass sie aus einem anderen rätselhaften Grund sterben mussten. Inzwischen sind fünf Jahre vergangen, und Emma hat Zuflucht im Institut der Schattenjäger in Los Angeles gefunden. Eine mysteriöse Mordserie sorgt für große Unruhe in der Unterwelt. Immer wieder werden Leichen gefunden, übersät mit alten Schriftzeichen, ähnliche Zeichen wie sie auch auf den Körpern von Emmas Eltern entdeckt worden waren. Emma muss dieser Spur nachgehen, selbst wenn sie dafür ihren engsten Vertrauten und Seelenverwandten Julian Blackthorn in große Gefahr bringt ...

Geister, Ghoule, Grabgeflüster: Die Agenten von LOCKWOOD & CO. sind allem gewachsen LONDON, ENGLAND: In den Straßen geht des Nachts das Grauen um. Unerklärliche Todesfälle ereignen sich, Menschen verschwinden und um die Ecken wabern Schatten, die sich nur zu oft in tödliche von Geisterwesen ausgesandte Plasmanebel verwandeln. Denn seit Jahrzehnten wird Großbritannien von einer wahren Epidemie an Geistererscheinungen heimgesucht. Überall im Land haben sich Agenturen gebildet, die in den heimgesuchten Häusern Austreibungen vornehmen. Hochgefährliche Unternehmungen bei denen sie, obwohl mit Bannkreisketten, Degen und Leuchtbomben ausgerüstet, nicht selten ihr Leben riskieren. So auch die drei Agenten von LOCKWOOD & CO. Dem jungen Team um den charismatischen Anthony Lockwood ist allerdings bei einem Einsatz ein fatales Missgeschick passiert. Um die Klage abwenden und den Schadenersatz dafür aufbringen zu können, müssen die drei Agenten von LOCKWOOD & CO. einen hochgefährlichen und zutiefst dubiosen Auftrag annehmen. Dieser führt sie in eines der verrufensten Herrenhäuser des Landes und stellt sie auf eine Probe, bei der es um nichts weniger als Leben oder Tod geht ...
