Sondereinband, [EAN: 9780606344463], Demco Media, Demco Media, Book, [PU: Demco Media], Demco Media, Walter M. Miller's acclaimed SF classic A Canticle for Leibowitz opens with the accidental excavation of a holy artifact: a creased, brittle memo scrawled by the hand of the blessed Saint Leibowitz, that reads: "Pound pastrami, can kraut, six bagels--bring home for Emma." To the Brothers of Saint Leibowitz, this sacred shopping list penned by an obscure, 20th-century engineer is a symbol of hope from the distant past, from before the Simplification, the fiery atomic holocaust that plunged the earth into darkness and ignorance. As 1984 cautioned against Stalinism, so 1959's A Canticle for Leibowitz warns of the threat and implications of nuclear annihilation. Following a cloister of monks in their Utah abbey over some six or seven hundred years, the funny but bleak Canticle tackles the sociological and religious implications of the cyclical rise and fall of civilization, questioning whether humanity can hope for more than repeating its own history. Divided into three sections--Fiat Homo (Let There Be Man), Fiat Lux (Let There Be Light), and Fiat Voluntas Tua (Thy Will Be Done)--Canticle is steeped in Catholicism and Latin, exploring the fascinating, seemingly capricious process of how and why a person is canonized. --Paul Hughes, 66093011, Klassiker, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 67221011, Action & Abenteuer, 67916011, Anthologien, 67220011, Buch zum Film, 67923011, Familiensagen, 67924011, Historisch, 67223011, Horror, 67926011, Krieg, 273042011, Medizin, 273043011, Metaphysisch, 67925011, Männerabenteuer, 67219011, Märchen, 67217011, Politisch, 55229011, Religion & Esoterik, 65642011, Schwul & Lesbisch, 1322750031, Seeabenteuer, 67218011, Sport, 67927011, Western, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 58017011, Fantasy, 58040011, Alternative Weltgeschichte, 58018011, Anthologien, 58039011, Arthus-Sage, 384001011, Dark Fantasy, 58020011, Epen, 384229011, Feen & Elfen, 58023011, Geschichte & Kritik, 58022011, Historisch, 58024011, Magie & Zauberer, 58026011, Serien, 58019011, Zeitgenössisch, 57127011, Fantasy & Science Fiction, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 58104011, Science Fiction, 58105011, Abenteuer, 58040011, Alternative Weltgeschichte, 58106011, Anthologien, 58110011, Geschichte & Kritik, 58117011, Graphic Novels, 58109011, High-Tech, 58116011, Kurzgeschichten, 58111011, Serien, 273012011, Space Opera, 57127011, Fantasy & Science Fiction, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

[SR: 11160935], Turtleback, [EAN: 9780606344463], Demco Media, Demco Media, Book, [PU: Demco Media], Demco Media, In the depths of the Utah desert, long after the Flame Deluge has scoured the earth clean, a monk of the Order of Saint Leibowitz has made a miraculous discovery: holy relics from the life of the great saint himself, including the blessed blueprint, the sacred shopping list, and the hallowed shrine of the Fallout Shelter.In a terrifying age of darkness and decay, these artifacts could be the keys to mankind's salvation. But as the mystery at the core of this groundbreaking novel unfolds, it is the search itself—for meaning, for truth, for love—that offers hope for humanity's rebirth from th, Walter M.
