Summary: 《維克斐牧師傳》,漢譯名又作《威克菲德的牧師》,愛爾蘭 作家歌士米(1730-1774)所著,為英國維多利亞時期最流行的小說之一,被譽為「諷刺感性小說」,行文美不勝收, 影響深遠,大文 豪葛特(歌德)、司各脫皆推崇備至。小說描寫一家庭遭逢大變,仍存心愷悌,對於人事得失、公平寬恕、受禍不減其駟良、遇變不失 其常度, 終於渡過厄運的考驗及獲得應有的回報。 譯註者伍光建(1867-1943)為中國近代三大翻譯家之一、白話文翻譯英文文學之父。本譯註前後歷時二十年完成,為伍氏傾心力最多、最用功之代 表作,堪稱近代英漢譯著的經典及模範。譯筆典雅、優美、簡潔,形神俱備。文學翻譯每每涉及文化差異,比一般翻譯困難,伍氏加 入譯註及按語以教化、開示後學,不失教育家本色。伍氏指出原著「語淺意深」,其譯註皆有畫龍點晴之功,讀者宜再三玩味! “The Vicar of Wakefield” by Irish author Oliver Goldsmith, was one of the most popular novels during British Victorian Era. It was well-received as both a satire and a sentimental novel, and greatly influenced later Man of Letters such as von Goethe and Sir Walter Scott. This Chinese version was translated and annotated by Woo Kwang-Kien, one of the three greatest translators of modern China, over a time-span of two decades. This work was a classic and quintessence of early modern translation from English to Chinese that had demonstrated Woo´s concise, classically elegant and beautiful writing style. Literature translation always encounters problems arising from cultural differences and thus much more demanding. We cordially encourage readers to ruminate thoroughly Woo´s annotations and notes in this one of his representative work.

Cynics, Paul and the Pauline Churches Book by F. Gerald Downing

Cynics, Paul and the Pauline Churches Book
  • Author : F. Gerald Downing
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2002-09-11
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 384
  • ISBN Code: 1134694571

Summary: F. Gerald Downing explores the teachings of Paul, arguing that the development of Paul's preaching and of the Pauline Church owed a great deal to the views of the vagabond Cynic philosophers, critics of the gods and of the ethos of civic society. F. Gerald Downing examines the New Testament writings of Paul, explaining how he would have been seen, heard, perceived and understood by his culturally and ethnically diverse converts and disciples. He engages in a lucid Pauline commentary and offers some startling and ground-breaking views of Paul and his Word. Cynics, Paul and the Pauline Churches is a unique and controversial book, particularly in its endorsement of the simple and ascetic life proffered in Paul's teachings in comparison with the greedy, consumerist and self-promoting nature of today's society.

Ethan Goodwin has been on the run all of his life—from family, from the law ... from God. After a heart-changing encounter with the gritty Reverend John Newton, Ethan would like nothing more than to become a man of integrity—an impossible feat for an opium addict charged with murder. When Ethan shows up on Miri's doorstep, her balancing act falls to pieces. Both Ethan and Miri are caught in a web of lies and deceit—fallacies that land Ethan in prison and Miri in the asylum with her brother. Only the truth will set them free.

But if he was infatuated before, he's utterly unprepared for what will happen when Eleanor decides to abandon convention—and truly live . . .

Summary: After a humiliating mistake, lawyer Benjamin Booker resolves to never again trust a beautiful woman. When an old friend is killed, the senior partner isn't satisfied with Bow Street's efforts and asks Benjamin to investigate. Eager to leave London for a while, Benjamin agrees. Evidence takes him to a remote island on the Thames, a world unto itself, shrouded in mist and mystery. Soon he finds himself falling for the main suspect--a woman who claims not to have left the island in ten years. But should he trust her? On Belle Island, Isabelle feels safe and leads a productive life, but fear keeps her trapped there. When Mr. Booker arrives with news of her trustee's murder in London, Isabelle is stunned. She has not left the island, yet she has a recurring dream about the man's death. Or is it a memory? She had been furious with him, but she never intended . . . this. When a second person dies and evidence shockingly points to her, Isabelle doesn't know who to trust: the attractive lawyer or the admirer and friends who assemble on the island, each with grudges against the victim. Can she even trust her own mind? While they search for the truth, secrets come to light and danger comes calling.

She fears she will end up a spinster, especially as she has little dowry, and the one man she thought might marry her seems to have fallen for her younger, prettier sister. Facing financial ruin, Abigail and her father search for more affordable lodgings, until a strange solicitor arrives with an astounding offer: the use of a distant manor house abandoned for eighteen years. The Fosters journey to imposing Pembrooke Park and are startled to find it entombed as it was abruptly left: tea cups encrusted with dry tea, moth-eaten clothes in wardrobes, a doll's house left mid-play... The handsome local curate welcomes them, but though he and his family seem acquainted with the manor's past, the only information they offer is a stern warning: Beware trespassers drawn by rumors that Pembrooke Park contains a secret room filled with treasure. This catches Abigail's attention. Hoping to restore her family's finances--and her dowry--Abigail looks for this supposed treasure. But eerie sounds at night and footprints in the dust reveal she isn't the only one secretly searching the house. Then Abigail begins receiving anonymous letters, containing clues about the hidden room and startling discoveries about the past. As old friends and new foes come calling at Pembrooke Park, secrets come to light. Will Abigail find the treasure and love she seeks...or very real danger?

Summary: Hell's Foundations Quiver: David Weber's New York Times-bestselling Safehold series begun with Off Armageddon Reef, By Schism Rent Asunder, By Heresies Distressed, A Mighty Fortress and Like a Mighty Army. TURNING OF THE TIDE Centuries ago, the human race fought its first great war against an alien race-and lost. A tiny population of human beings fled to distant Safehold. Centuries later, their descendants have forgotten their history; for them, life has been an eternal Middle Ages, ruled by the Church of God Awaiting, whose secret purpose is to prevent the re-emergence of industrial civilization. But not all of Safehold's founders were on board with this plan. Those dissidents left behind their own secret legacies. One of those is Merlyn Athrawes, cybernetic avatar of one of Earth's long-dead defenders, now reawakened after a thousand years to restart human progress and reclaim our place in the universe. Merlyn has intervened in the small Safeholdian realm of Charis, seeding it with ideas and innovations and helping it to rise to challenge the hegemony of the Church. It's been a long and bloody fight, but aided by a stream of inventions--breech-loading rifles, signal rockets, claymore mines, new approaches to manufacturing and supply-Charis and its few allies seem to have finally gained the upper hand. Now major realms have begun to consider switching sides. To all these ends, Merlyn Athrawes has been everywhere, under multiple disguises and wielding hidden powers. The secret of who and what he is has been closely held. But a new player has arrived, one who knows many secrets-including Merlyn's own. Safehold Series 1. Off Armageddon Reef 2.
