‎دوستانِ گرانقدر، این داستان یا بهتر بگویم افسانهٔ موهوم، مربوط به کلیسایی کهن در شهرِ < اکس لاشاپل> در آلمان میباشد

Eine Liebeserklärung an Heidelberg und europäische Geschichte.
Dieser Ausschnitt aus Victor Hugos Rheinreise hat den typischen wunderschönen und sympathischen Stil den man aus seinen anderen Werken kennt. Das Buch ist wie die Abschweifungen und Exkursionen in die Vergangenheit in seinen Romanen, nur dass sie einen hier nicht aus einer Handlung raus reißen sondern als eigenständiges Werk dastehen. Eindrücke, Entdeckungen und Anektdoten bilden diesen besonderen Reisebericht von 1840. Wer den Autor

Conjunto de cartas que Victor Hugo envía a su amigo, el artista Louis Boulanger durante sus viajes al Rin (1838-39-40). Reflexiones históricas, filosóficas y políticas con demasiada miga como para exponerlas aquí, (aunque un buen "huguer" ya sabrá por dónde irán los tiros). Catálogo de enclaves míticos y de gran peso histórico que Hugo va presentando y desarrollando, contrastando la grandeza del pasado con la decadencia del presente. Con estos viajes se inspiraría el maestro para escribir el dra ...more

An Ode to the Rhine. Victor Hugo traveled along the Rhine in 1840 and reported extensively in letters, which he later published. He was also a gifted visual artist, and many of his works depict ruins of castles that can be found in multitude along the riverbanks. Fifteen of those illustrations are also included in this booklet. This translated edition is a sort of "best of", and not the full translation of his letters, but nevertheless captures well Hugo's fascination with the river's landscape ...more
Socrate
A guverna naţiuni înseamnă a-ţi asuma o responsabilitate; a vorbi minţilor înseamnă a-ţi asuma alta; şi oamenii inimoşi, cât de plăpânzi ar fi, de îndată ce-şi asumă o sarcină, o fac serios. Să culeagă fapte, să vadă lucrurile cu proprii ochi, să aprecieze greutăţile, să coopereze, dacă poate, la soluţii este însăşi condiţia misiunii scriitorului, dacă e sincer înţeleasă. Nu se cruţă, caută, încearcă să înţeleagă; şi, după ce a înţeles, se străduie să explice. El ştie că perseverenţa este o forţ ...more
