This carefully crafted ebook: "The Pied Piper of Hamelin (Complete Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Pied Piper of Hamelin is the subject of a legend concerning the disappearance or death of a great number of kids from the town of Hamelin (Hameln), Lower Saxony, Germany, in the Middle Ages. The earliest references describe a piper, dressed in multicolored ("pied") clothing, leading the kids away from the town never to return. In the 16th century the story was expanded into a full narrative, in which the piper is a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magic pipe. When the citizens refuse to pay for this service, he retaliates by turning his power that he put in his instrument on their children, leading them away as he had the rats. This version of the story spread as folklore and has also appeared in the writings of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the Brothers Grimm and Robert Browning, among others. Using the Verstegan/Wanley version of the tale and adopting the 1376 date, Browning's verse retelling is notable for its humor, wordplay, and jingling rhymes. Robert Browning (1812-1889) was an English poet and playwright whose mastery of dramatic verse, and in particular the dramatic monologue, made him one of the foremost Victorian poets. His poems are known for their irony, characterization, dark humor, social commentary, historical settings, and challenging vocabulary and syntax. The speakers in his poems are often musicians or painters whose work functions as a metaphor for poetry.

Básník, prozaik, dramatik a publicista Viktor Dyk se v této novele (časopisecky 1911–1912, knižně 1915) inspiroval starou saskou pověstí, již použil jako volný rámec pro vyprávění o tajemném poutníkovi, který na žádost občanů očistí svou píšťalou hanzovní město Hammeln od krys, avšak rozčarován malodušností konšelů a zrazen v lásce, zneužije píšťaly a odvede za trest celé město do zkázy. Protipólem postavy krysaře, osudově formovaného hrdiny, osamělého a neklidného snivce ztělesňujícího svět buřičů, je v knize rybář Sepp Jörgen, jenž se s realitou smiřuje a záchranou kojence dá vyrůst nové naději. Dyk v této novele, jež odráží novoklasicistní směřování jeho pozdní tvorby, tak dokázal využít staré předlohy k vytvoření svrchovaného prozaického díla o konfliktu iluze a skutečnosti. Jeho tajuplná atmosféra předznamenává pozdější baladickou prózu 30. let.

A wave of babynappings has terrified parents from San Diego to Portland. And when the Pied Piper--named for the penny flute he leaves in the cribs of his victims--claims his first Seattle infant, the investigation draws in homicide detective Lou Boldt. Assigned temporarily to Intelligence so he can spend more time with his kids while his wife is hospitalized for chemotherapy, Boldt's role is to keep the FBI out of the Seattle Police Department's way. But FBI special agent Gary Flemming is a tough adversary--so tough it almost seems as if he's intentionally sabotaging the SPD's investigation. Then the Pied Piper snatches Boldt's own daughter, promising that unless Boldt throws both the Feds and the SPD off his trail he'll never see his child again. Caught between his professional obligations and his fear for Sarah's life, Boldt launches his own private manhunt with the help of John La Moia, his replacement in homicide, and police psychologist Daphne Matthews, his closest friend in the department. They form a sub rosa task force under the noses of the Feds and the SPD, and soon discover how the Piper has managed to stay a step ahead of the police, elude capture, and find his small victims. The chase moves from Seattle to Portland to New Orleans, culminating in a thrilling denouement in the daffodil fields of Washington's Skagit Valley. Combining strong characterizations with an impressive command of both policing and pacing, Ridley Pearson, author of Chain of Evidence and Beyond Recognition, delivers another sure winner in this outing for Lou Boldt. --Jane Adams

This publication is intended for the Elder's of any community, educators, the young and old. More specifically, those individuals who are presently encountering difficulty in their transformational process in making productive career decisions, as well as, those who have reached the final stage of adolescence, in their quest for psycho-social development. The greatest experience that an individual can have is being empowered with knowledge of self, i.e., cultural awareness, which emanates into self-pride and confidence in one's ability to achieve success in all of their endeavors in life. Culture becomes the vessel that propels the individual into action in a conscious state of existence. Once bought into this state of consciousness, one is enabled to make proactive decisions in their lives, no longer allowing the media, environmental conditions, and others to become enablers for them. Each chapter represents different phases of mentally transforming instructive messages, thus, initiating a new way of listening, contemplating and reacting to the conditions of the Pied Piper. The order and arrangement of this book is a governing line of thought, all of which corresponds to the Pharonic mentality. As one synthesis the information of each proceeding chapters it embark the reader on a journey of self-exploration. This book heightens the individual's ability to convert words of power, into inner strength and spiritual ascendancy. This book is not to be read like a novel, but explored chapter by chapter as a mean of grasping the intricate nature of the subject matter. Also, it is an excellent introductory examination of the various facets involved in the Pied Piper Effect and the impact that music has on society as a whole. As my Grandmother use to say, "If You Dance To The Music, You Have To Pay The Piper."
