A Summer of Hummingbirds

Love, Art, and Scandal in the Intersecting Worlds of Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain , Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Martin Johnson Heade

The country's most noted writers, poets, and artists converge at a singular moment in American life, a great companion to fans of the film A Quiet Passion, starring Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson. At the close of the Civil War, the lives of Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Martin Johnson Heade intersected in an intricate map of friendship, family, and romance that marked a milestone in the development of American art and literature. Using the image of a flitting hummingbird as a metaphor for the gossamer strands that connect these larger-than-life personalities, Christopher Benfey re-creates the summer of 1882, the summer when Mabel Louise Todd-the protégé to the painter Heade-confesses her love for Emily Dickinson's brother, Austin, and the players suddenly find themselves caught in the crossfire between the Calvinist world of decorum, restraint, and judgment and a new, unconventional world in which nature prevails and freedom is all. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Retirement Series is documenting Jefferson's written legacy between his return to private life on 4 March 1809 and his death on 4 July 1826. During this period Jefferson founded the University of Virginia and sold his extraordinary library to the nation, but his greatest legacy from these years is the astonishing depth and breadth of his correspondence with statesmen, inventors, scientists, philosophers, and ordinary citizens on topics spanning virtually every field of human endeavor.--From publisher description.

Faszination Atlantik – die große Erzählung über ein Stück ungezähmte Natur Der Atlantik bedeckt ein Fünftel der Erdoberfläche und zieht die Menschen seit Jahrtausenden in seinen Bann. Er steckt voller verblüffender Geschichten und Anekdoten und ist das eigentliche Zentrum unserer westlichen Kultur. Simon Winchesters große, opulente Kultur- und Naturgeschichte des Atlantiks macht die Faszination für diesen »wildesten aller Ozeane« erlebbar. Seit er als Kind im Ozeandampfer zum ersten Mal den Atlantik überquert hat, fühlt sich Bestsellerautor Simon Winchester von dieser riesigen Wassermasse magisch angezogen. Immer wieder führten ihn seine Reisen kreuz und quer über den Atlantik; er recherchierte Fakten, sammelte Geschichten und Anekdoten. In seinem neuen Buch breitet er diese Schätze vor dem Leser aus. Spannend und kenntnisreich erzählt er, wie der Atlantik vor über 190 Millionen Jahren entstand und wie seit Urzeiten die Menschen sich mit diesem wildesten aller Meere messen. Fast scheint es, als hätten sie in jüngster Zeit den Kampf gewonnen – doch Simon Winchester ermahnt uns zu einem respektvollen Umgang mit diesem nach wie vor unberechenbaren Riesen.
