Description: Snatched from her peaceful homestead in Celtic Britain, Bivana is transported to the legendary city of Rome. Struggling to come to terms with the loss of everyone and everything she has ever known, but determined to survive, she slowly adapts to a life of slavery and to the alien culture which surrounds her. Her relationship with the slave Philon seems to promise a fresh start, but it also brings her into contact with the Nazarenes, activists in a fanatical new religious movement. When her own family is drawn into a clash with the authorities, she is forced to draw on all her resources to save them. --- Since its first publication in 1999, "The Stone City" has become well known and loved in its Esperanto translation, and has been translated by fans into French and Hungarian. This revised edition of the original English version includes several additional scenes.

Anna Lowenstein became interested in the Romans when she visited Italy over thirty years ago, and was awestruck by her first view of the Pantheon. She wondered what impression it must have made on a barbarian who had never seen a stone building before, let alone architecture as magnificent as the houses and temples of Rome. That was the moment when she had the idea for her first novel "The Stone City". Not long afterwards she moved to Italy and came to live in the Roman countryside close to the ancient town of Palestrina, which appears in this novel under its Latin name Praeneste. Since then she has written a second novel, "Death of an Artist", also set in Ancient Rome, and is now working on a third.

Description: In simple, understated style, Tivadar Soros tells how he and his companions broke out of their Siberian prisoner-of-war camp at the time of the Russian Revolution and traveled on foot through inhospitable mountains to freedom. And this was just preparation for the equally horrendous conditions that Tivadar and his family endured in World War II.

Unfortunately, out there in the forest, I had no companion like Crusoe's Friday. My main helpers were an unquenchable desire to return home, and the easy equanimity that comes to a healthy person leading a wandering life.
Tivadar Soros

Tivadar Soros's memoir of Siberia ... is essentially an adventure story – a story of a young man's ingenuity and endurance.
Humphrey Tonkin

As a schoolboy, I used to join my father in the swimming pool after school, and after swimming he would regale me with an installment of his adventures. In this way they became an important part of my childhood.
George Soros

I and my brother consider it to be our good fortune to grow up observing how our father lived and dealt with the problems of the world.
Paul Soros

Tivadar Soros (1894–1968) was a Hungarian Jewish doctor, lawyer, author and editor. He was the father of Paul and George Soros. He fought in World War I and spent years in a prison camp in Siberia before escaping. He founded the Esperanto literary magazine Literatura Mondo (Literary World) in 1922 and edited it until 1924. He wrote the novels Modernaj Robinzonoj (Crusoes in Siberia) and Maskerado ĉirkaŭ la morto (Masquerade (dance) around death), an autobiographical novel about his experience during the Nazi occupation of Budapest, Hungary. Maskerado has been translated into English, Russian, German, Turkish, and Hungarian, Modernaj Robinzonoj into English and Italian.Source: en.wikipedia.org

Description: Released to the public for the first time in in 1887, Esperanto had its specific origins in the fertile brain of a single individual, Zamenhof, and in the particular circum stan ces into which he was born and came of age. It is the story of these origins that Aleksander Korzhenkov's biography sets out to tell.

That biography was originally published in Esperanto; the present version, in Ian Richmond's excellent translation, is an abridged version of the original text, prepared for English readers by the author.

Zamenhof was a child of his times - buffeted by the social upheavals of Eastern Europe in the late nineteenth century, eager to find solutions to social ills, but alive to new ways of thinking that accompanied this change. Seeking to solve the specific problems of his own day, he created a language equally well suited to addressing those of ours. (Humphrey Tonkin)

Description:

Jesus' death - "triumph of a glorious illusion".
His "resurrection" - a plot by Kaiaphas gone wrong.

This novel, based on a large amount of research, seeks to explore Jesus' actual life before he became an object of deification and falsification. It follows him from his humble birth, his gradual development of healing powers, his years as an Essene monk, his short campaign as a charismatic healer-preacher, to his ghastly death - and what happened after the death.Every page is packed with details of life at that time, its intellectual currents and political developments. This Jesus is an attractive human being who makes some mistakes, but inspires strong love and hatred. Incidentally, Judas Iscariot is shown to be not the betrayer but the loyallest follower of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene, the woman Jesus loved, was never a prostitute.

The core text is the manuscript of Aurelius, an officer of the Roman army of occupation, who interviewed many people just a few years after the crucifixion and wrote this biography. But we read it through the eyes of a black American cardinal of the twenty-first century. -- Australian author Trevor Steele has published almost a dozen novels, collections of short stories, and travelogues in English and Esperanto.

Description: This English version of the novel is a translation from Esperanto. Translator: Trevor Steele.

At the beginning of the 1930's, when the Brazilian version of fascism - the movement of the green shirts and the sigma symbol of the socalled "integralists" - appear in Southern Brazil, Ludvig Kapstein, a non-practicing Jew, decides to leave his city and move far away. He is nicknamed "Prophet" because of his long beard, his wisdom and his free spirit, and in the small town of Pedras somewhere at the Uruguay River, he finds his new home. Family, friends, his optimism and sense of innovation help him become one of Pedras' most respected citizens, until one day bandits show up... 

"The Prophet from Pedras" is humorous and tragic, full of the small and big stories life brings along. It was first published in 2000 under the title "La Profeto el Pedras" in the international language Esperanto and has been translated into Portuguese, Italian and Chinese. This English translation is by Australian writer Trevor Steele. 

The author, Gersi Alfredo Bays (*1934), is a publisher of Esperanto literature and was the editor of the literary magazine Fonto. He was a member of the Academy of Esperanto.

This outstanding work of scholarly reference appears in English for the first time. No other such extensive descriptive work is available on this global cultural phenomenon. Esperanto is the only planned international language to have become the vernacular and literary medium of a widespread speech community. This work charts the evolution of its original literature from its humble beginnings in 1887 to its worldwide use in every literary genre in the present day. The work is a revelation for students of comparative and world literature.

The Concise Encyclopedia of the Original Literature of Esperanto contains:

• a preface by Dr. Humphrey Tonkin, Professor of the Humanities and President Emeritus at the University of Hartford, Connecticut
• a general introduction to Esperanto literature, its history, evolution and modern development
• individual introductions to the five periods of the literature
• over 300 individual articles on the most important writers and their work in chronological order, with biographies and critique
• sample literary texts from some of the best original authors
• an introduction to the language itself, its linguistic structure and creative capabilities
• extensive bibliographies and index
Esperanto is used on every continent as a neutral second language by people who wish to practise mutual respect for other cultures – and not merely advocate it. It has evolved naturally into a fully developed literary language, whose acquisition nevertheless does not necessitate the many years of study required by an ethnic language.

Esperanto literature is created by writers from many countries who have chosen to use it because of its merits. It is, as yet, nearly always a labour of love – that is to say a product of culture. It is also most fundamentally democratic – a product of people, as opposed to capital, power or national prestige. More generally, the precise nature of Esperanto culture is still debated. It is certain, however, that it is unusually aware. In contrast to other contemporary cultures, Esperanto-speakers are more likely to be acquainted with their poets, despite the lack of a state-financed education system.

The beginnings of the philosophy behind Esperanto may be found in the work of Descartes. This philosophy is the concretization of an ideal that has been incubated by enlightened people for centuries: If all our mental processes and operations should be ruled by reason, then the first field into which we must introduce it is that means by which we express and interconnect our thoughts, which is language. (Gaston Waringhien).

Leibnitz continued the work of Descartes. At the end of a French-language manuscript, discovered in Hanover Library in 1903, he wrote: When this project (of a universal language) is realized, the happiness of mankind will depend solely on themselves, because then they will have a tool at their disposal that will serve to increase their good sense as the telescope serves to increase the capacity to see … Esperanto is a vernacular and literary medium that belongs equally to all and to no one, used by people who are universally bilingual or multilingual and generally support language diversity.

Esperanto in the New York Times

Esperanto in The New York Times

by Ulrich Becker (ed.)

ISBN 9781595691699
286 pages.

This book is a look back at the beginnings of the Esperanto movement (1887-1922) in the US and beyond, opening a window into contemporaneous accounts on the pages of a world-renowned newspaper.   

Details and where to buy:

8.5" x 5.5" (21,5 cm x 14 cm)
perfect bound
To buy the paperback version: UEA / Mondial / Bookdepository / or use the ISBN number above to find it in your country's Amazon or other bookseller's websites.
To buy an electronic copy: Google Play/ Kindle

Description: Some of the articles in this collection reflect aspects of the history of the Esperanto movement quite vividly; in others, we find odd anecdotes about Esperanto and the Esperantists; and many passionately-written letters from readers illustrate the ups and downs, the successes and conflicts of the Esperanto community, as well as its disputes with the skeptics outside their ranks.

These first 35 years of the history of Esperanto seen from the vantage point of the New York Times show how Esperanto gradually became established in the US and in the world, carried on the high hopes of its early, idealistic proponents.

The book is supplemented by an appendix containing an index of the names of persons mentioned in the newspaper articles, a short bibliography, and a collection of links to reliable information on Esperanto on the Internet.

Description:

Collection of texts in English and German about Terminological standardization, its roots and fruits in planned languages; i.a. about the influence of interlinguists and Esperanto speakers Eugen Wüster and Ernest Drezen on the development of international terminology standards.

Internationale Plansprachen, mit Esperanto als ihrem Hauptvertreter, lieferten grundlegende Impulse für die Begründung einer sprachen- und fachunabhängigen allgemeinen Terminologiewissenschaft durch den österreichischen Esperantologen und Ingenieur Eugen Wüster (1898-1977) und den lettischen Interlinguisten und Techniker Ernest Karlovic Drezen (1892-1937). Der vorliegende Band behandelt weitgehend unbekannte plansprachliche Aspekte der Terminologiewissenschaft sowie Ergebnisse terminologischer Aktivitäten in der Sprachgemeinschaft des Esperanto.

Wera Blanke (*1933), Berlin, hatte verschiedene Berufe, darunter Farbfilm-Lichtbestimmerin, Schauspielerin, Arbeits- und Gestaltungstherapeutin; beschäftigt sich seit 1979 mit der Bildung von Fachwörtern in Esperanto; arbeitete u.a. über die plansprachlichen Impulse für die Entstehung der Terminologiewissenschaft; initiierte 1985 das Terminologische Zentrum des Esperanto-Weltbundes (Universala Esperanto-Asocio, Rotterdam); hielt zahlreiche Vorträge und veröffentlichte vor allem in Deutsch und Esperanto; erhielt 2006 auf Anregung des Internationalen Informationszentrums für Terminologie (Infoterm, Wien) den „Eugen-Wüster-Sonderpreis“.
