Die Gedichte Robert Frosts (1874–1963) gehören nicht nur zum festen Bestand amerikanischer Lyrik der Moderne, sie haben ihren Platz in der Weltliteratur gefunden. Der vorliegende Band macht den deutschen Lesern die bekanntesten, die kanonisch gewordenen Gedichte von Robert Frost zugänglich wie "Rast am Wald an einem verschneiten Tag" oder "Der nicht genommene Weg". Frost hat sich um einen natürlichen, organischen Sprachfluss bemüht und sich zugleich stets dem freien Vers widersetzt, die Gedichte suchen die Nähe zur gesprochenen Sprache und halten doch an der Besonderheit dichterischer Sprache fest. Die Natur, die äußere und die innere des Menschen, hat Frost fasziniert, der als Farmer gleichzeitig einen unsentimentalen Blick auf sie hatte. Aber auch die menschliche Natur zeigt sich in allen ihren Feinheiten und Brüchen, so Frost, besonders dem Dichter. So ist seine Lyrik in ihrer klassischen Schönheit auch eine Begegnung mit uns selbst.

During the past fifteen years, changes in technology have generated an extraordinary array of new ways in which music and movies can be produced and distributed. Both the creators and the consumers of entertainment products stand to benefit enormously from the new systems. Sadly, we have failed thus far to avail ourselves of these opportunities. Instead, much energy has been devoted to interpreting or changing legal rules in hopes of defending older business models against the threats posed by the new technologies. These efforts to plug the multiplying holes in the legal dikes are failing and the entertainment industry has fallen into crisis. This provocative book chronicles how we got into this mess and presents three alternative proposals--each involving a combination of legal reforms and new business models--for how we could get out of it.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Joe Biden, the author of Promise Me, Dad, tells the story of his extraordinary life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama’s beloved, influential vice president. “I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling.”—Joe Biden Vice President Joe Biden has both witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American history. In Promises to Keep, Joe Biden reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government. With his customary candor and wit, Biden movingly recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming personal tragedy, life-threatening illness, and career setbacks; his relationships with presidents, with world leaders, and with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees. Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life—to work to make people’s lives better; to honor family and faith; to value persistence, candor, and honesty—are the foundation on which he has based his life’s work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keep is an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who surmounted numerous challenges to become one of our most effective leaders and who refuses to be cynical about politics. It is also a stirring testament to the promise of the United States. Praise for Promises to Keep “A ripping good read . . . Biden is a master storyteller and has stories worth telling.”—The Christian Science Monitor “A compelling personal story.”—The New York Times “Moving . . . [Biden’s] response to tragedy and near death [is] both admirable and likable.”—Salon
