Human clustering in coastal areas The coastal zone has gained a solid reputation as a place vocated for recreational activities and this is generally related to the presence of the sea. The relationship, however, does not appear univocal or simple: the sea can be perceived as a hostile element by humans and the more general question of whether the presence of the shore is in itself a favourable, repulsive, or irrelevant factor to settlement is a debatable point, at least for pre-industrial societies. Back in the early part of the 19th century, Friedrich Hegel regarded oceans and rivers as unifying elements rather than dividing ones, thus implying a trend towards the concentration of human settlements along them. 'The sea', he wrote, 'stimulates 1 courage and conquest, as well as profit and plunder', although he realized that this did not equally apply to all maritime peoples. In Hegel's view, different approaches to the sea were mainly the results of cultural factors and, in fact, he recognized that some people living in coastal areas perceive the sea as a dangerous and alien place and the shore as aftnis terrae.

Sie alle zieht das alte Anwesen in seinen Bann, längst überwunden geglaubte Spannungen lodern wieder auf, und neue erotische Verwicklungen bahnen sich an.

Bei Jane Austen geht es wie immer ums Ehestiften, diesmal ist der Schauplatz der idyllische englische Badeort Sanditon. Als Charlotte Heywood dort eintrifft, gerät sie sofort in eine turbulente Gesellschaft. Als Jane Austen 1817 starb, war der Roman unvollendet. 1975 unternahm es die Austen-Verehrerin Marie Dobbs, die Handlung kunstvoll fortzuspinnen, und brachte auf so unterhaltsame Weise etliche glückliche Paare zusammen, daß es schwerfällt zu glauben, Jane Austen habe nicht selbst den Schlußpunkt gesetzt.

Das Werk "David Copperfield", (Originaltitel "David Copperfield or The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery (Which He Never Meant to Publish on Any Account)") ist ein Bildungsroman des englischen Schriftstellers Charles Dickens aus dem Jahr 1849/50. Der Roman wurde zunächst, wie die meisten von Dickens' Werken, als monatliche Fortsetzungsgeschichte mit je zwei Illustrationen von Phiz für einen Schilling konzipiert und später überarbeitet. Viele Elemente der Geschichte folgen Ereignissen aus Dickens' eigenem Leben, "David Copperfield" gilt daher als der am stärksten autobiographisch geprägte Roman seines Gesamtwerkes. Dickens selbst bezeichnete "David Copperfield" als seine Lieblingsgeschichte.

Nominated for the Governor General's Literary Awards 2005, (Children's Literature, Text) The setting is Sri Lanka, 1980, and it is the season of monsoons. Fourteen-year-old Amrith is caught up in the life of the cheerful, well-to-do household in which he is being raised by his vibrant Auntie Bundle and kindly Uncle Lucky. He tries not to think of his life “before,” when his doting mother was still alive. Amrith’s holiday plans seem unpromising: he wants to appear in his school’s production of Othello and he is learning to type at Uncle Lucky’s tropical fish business. Then, like an unexpected monsoon, his cousin arrives from Canada and Amrith’s ordered life is storm-tossed. He finds himself falling in love with the Canadian boy. Othello, with its powerful theme of disastrous jealousy, is the backdrop to the drama in which Amrith finds himself immersed. Shyam Selvadurai’s brilliant novels, Funny Boy and Cinnamon Gardens, have garnered him international acclaim. In this, his first young adult novel, he explores first love with clarity, humor, and compassion.

Zudem begreifen Erziraphael und Crowley, dass die Erde eigentlich doch gar keine so üble Gegend im Universum ist. Doch der Termin für den Weltuntergang rückt unaufhaltsam näher...
