Wagner completed the first version of the opera in 1845 during his tenure as Kapellmeister at the royal court of Dresden, but he continued to redraft and revise it for the rest of his life. The setting is medieval Germany: the minstrel Tannhauser has fallen into sin with the goddess Venus but after a year, in a moment of realisation he demands to leave. He finds himself near his home and is reunited with Elisabeth, a girl he once loved. Elisabeth´s uncle, the landgrave, organises a singing competition between Tannhauser and Wolfram, who also loves her. Wolfram´s song is simple and moving, while Tannhauser, confused by Venus, outrages the audience by singing of profane love. He is banished to Rome on a pilgrimage to seek redemption, and Elisabeth follows him with Wolfram. After much searching, she gives up and dies, just missing Tannhauser, who Wolfram discovers creeping back to Venus, the Pope having said that it was as impossible for him to be forgiven as for his staff to sprout flowers. Tannhauser sees Elisabeth and casts himself to die by her coffin, and the Pope´s staff bursts into bloom. This is the Schirmer edition of the Vocal Score, edited and translated into English by Natalia MacFarren.

We are living in unnerving times. Our societies are characterised by a social polarisation not known since the 1930s. At the same time, there is now one principal source of knowledge: Google, an omnipresent, omniscient (some might say) company embedded in the social justice warrior ideology. Just a handful of Californian companies control our digital lives. These companies and most public institutions employ the same commoditised speech code (diversity, inclusion etc.) that operates in a context of groupthink enforcing further the sense of polarisation.Language is being increasingly policed and causing offence could now be a hate-crime in parts of western Europe. Amidst such infringements on the freedom of speech, a culture of silence is emerging. This can be seen in our universities. They should be theatres of open debate, but instead many shun viewpoint diversity. But, the toxic, zero-sum identity politics that currently plagues academia is spreading now to society at large.This book explores the nuts and bolts of this identity politics that is weakening and dividing our Continent. The Ideology of Failure asks the most searching questions of the political correctness orthodoxy and gives the reader the tools to talk openly about the topics which we are made to feel awkward about discussing.
After 10 years of searching obsessively, Raiden has finally found his beloved and brought him into his home - a palatial aquatic mansion built with the merboy´s every comfort in mind. But for all the luxuries the billionaire has provided, the one thing he cannot give his sweet Akira is himself. No matter how much they wish to be together, they find themselves constantly separated by their one insurmountable obstacle - the water. Raiden cannot live in it, and Akira cannot live without it. Or can he? Raiden is about to learn that when dealing with mythical creatures, it may be best not to make assumptions...and that their happily-ever-after may not be so unobtainable after all.

Primed for promotion to the World-Journal city editor, grizzled senior reporter Pop is stunned when it´s announced that young Leonard Caulborn, the publisher´s son-in-law, will get the post. Worse, the lad wants him out. In protest, Pop demands to be given a beat again and gets his wish...only now he´s got just two days to find the ´´real´´ story about a dead-end assignment - a month-old physics lecture - or be fired. When Pop starts searching for the story´s source, a professor named Pertwee, he lands in the middle of the story of the century after the Empire State Building, Grant´s Tomb, and Grand Central Station all disappear. Apparently, Pertwee´s the mastermind behind it all. But Pop soon discovers that, instead of inventing a new way to blow things up, the professor may be doing quite the opposite. 1. Language: English.
