In 1997, Charles Frazier’s debut novel Cold Mountain made publishing history when it sailed to the top of The New York Times best-seller list for sixty-one weeks, won numerous literary awards, including the National Book Award, and went on to sell over three million copies. Now, the beloved American epic returns, reissued by Grove Press to coincide with the publication of Frazier’s eagerly-anticipated second novel, Thirteen Moons. Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at Petersburg, a Confederate soldier named Inman decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains to Ada, the woman he loves. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate and sometimes lethal converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, the intrepid Ada is trying to revive her father’s derelict farm and learning to survive in a world where the old certainties have been swept away. As it interweaves their stories, Cold Mountain asserts itself as an authentic odyssey, hugely powerful, majestically lovely, and keenly moving.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1999 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universität Augsburg (Neuphiliolpgische Fakultät), Veranstaltung: PS: Strömungen und Tendenzen im amerikanischen Roman der Gegenwart, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Bürgerkrieg - eines der verbreitesten Themen in amerikanischen Romanen. Der Nord- Süd Konflikt entstand durch die Forderung des Südens ihre Unabhängigkeit, die Sklaverei und ihr eigenes Territorium zu erhalten. Der Norden stritt dagegen eher für eine Einheit der Nationen und erst später für die Abschaffung der Sklaverei. Die militärische Überlegenheit war eindeutig dem Norden zugeschrieben. Dreiundzwanzig nördliche Staaten standen elf Südlichen gegenüber. Trotzdem waren den Politikern des Nordens bewußt, daß nur wenn es ihnen gelang, ein konkretes politisches Konzept zu entwickeln, das die Wähler überzeugen und vor allem den Truppen den eigentlichen Sinn des Krieges verdeutlichen konnte, auch eine Aussicht auf Erfolg gegeben war. Somit wurde immer an die Loyalität und an den Patriotismus appelliert. 1865 kapitulierte die Armee der Südstaaten. Der amerikanische Bürgerkrieg war der erste moderne totale Krieg. Alle verfügbaren Reserven sowohl an Menschen, wie auch an Technologie wurden eingesetzt. Dieser Krieg stellt den verlustreichsten Krieg der amerikanischen Geschichte dar, mit über 600 000 Toten. In dieser Arbeit werde ich zuerst "The Red Badge of Courage" bearbeiten, dann

This authoritative, bilingual edition represents the first time the entirety of Cold Mountain's poetry has been translated into English. These translations were originally published by Copper Canyon Press nearly twenty years ago. Now, significantly revised and expanded, the collection also includes a new preface by the translator, Red Pine, whose accompanying notes are at once scholarly, accessible, and entertaining. Also included for the first time are poems by two of Cold Mountain's colleagues. Legendary for his clarity, directness, and lack of pretension, the eight-century hermit-poet Cold Mountain (Han Shan) is a major figure in the history of Chinese literature and has been a profound influence on writers and readers worldwide. Writers such as Charles Frazier and Gary Snyder studied his poetry, and Jack Kerouac's Dharma Bums is dedicated "to Han Shan." 1.B storied cliffs were the fortune I cast bird trails beyond human tracks what surrounds my yard white clouds nesting dark rocks I've lived here quite a few years and always seen the spring-water change tell those people with tripods and bells empty names are no damn good 71. someone sits in a mountain gorge cloud robe sunset tassels handful of fragrances he'd share the road is long and

The International Million Copy Bestseller 'A beautiful book, written in exquisite prose' Kate Atkinson 'Magnificent' Observer **** A soldier wounded in the Civil War, Inman turns his back on the carnage of the battlefield and begins the treacherous journey home to Cold Mountain, and to Ada, the woman he loved before the war began. As Inman attempts to make his way across the mountains, through the devastated landscape of a soon-to-be-defeated South, Ada struggles to make a living from the land her once-wealthy father left when he died. Neither knows if the other is still alive. From the bestselling author of Nightwoods, this novel inspired the Oscar-winning film directed by Anthony Minghella and starring Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, and Renee Zellweger.
