    Literatur und Kunst des europäischen Abendlands sind durch die Imagination von Farben geprägt.

  • Symptom of Beautyby Francette Pacteau

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 16.00

    For a woman in the Western world, there is no escaping beauty. Either she possesses it, or she lacks it. If she lacks it, she may hope to gain it.

  • Sketches Sartorial, Tonsorial and the Likeby St Claire Bullock; R. V. Andelson

    Shepheard-Walwyn 2009; US$ 9.95

    A collection of rhyming couplets, these wry and witty poems ponder the foibles and vanities of mortals.

Perfect... more...

  • Bürger, Gott und Götterschützlingby Sabine Schlegelmilch

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 168.00

    Portrayals of children became increasingly common in Greek literature and art during the Hellenistic period.
