Eberstadt, Fernanda: Liebeswut. Roman. Aus dem Amerikanischen von Judith Schwaab. - (=rororo 24416). Reinbek bei Hamburg, Rowohlt-Taschenbuch-Verlag., 2006. ISBN: 3499244160
Sehr guter Zustand. Frisches Exemplar. Wie ungelesen. - Fernanda Eberstadt (born 1960 in New York City) is an American writer. Early lifeShe is the daughter of two patrons of New York City's avant-garde, Frederick Eberstadt, a photographer and psychotherapist, and Isabel Eberstadt, a writer. Her paternal grandfather was Ferdinand Eberstadt, a Wall Street financier and adviser to presidents; her maternal grandfather was the poet Ogden Nash. She went to the Brearley School in New York City. As a teenager, she worked at Andy Warhol's Factory and for Diana Vreeland at the Metropolitan Museum. Her first published piece was a profile in Andy Warhol's "Interview" in 1979 of the travel writer Bruce Chatwin. At age eighteen, Eberstadt moved to the United Kingdom where she was one of the first women to attend Magdalen College, Oxford, from which she graduated in 1982. with a double first. Writing careerIn 1985, Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. published the twenty-five-year old Eberstadt's first work of literary fiction, titled Low Tide. This told the story of Jezebel, daughter of an English art dealer and a mad Louisa heiress, adn her fatal love affair with two young brothers. It takes place in New York, Oxford and Mexico. Praise for her work landed her an interview with intellectual William F. Buckley on his television program, Firing Line, where she appeared with Bret Easton Ellis, who had published "Less Than Zero" the same year. The same year, Eberstadt discussed the author of Survival in Auschwitz, Primo Levi, in an article in Commentary magazine. An essay in The Cambridge Companion to Primo Levi by Bryan Cheyette describes the article as follows: "The problem with Levi, clearly, is that he is not Eli Wiesel ... Levi's secular humanism offers a completely different representation of the Holocaust to that of Wiesel and thereby endangers Wiesel's hegemony as the emblematic Holocaust survivor in the United States." Biographer Ian Thomson's 2002 volume Primo Levi characterizes Eberstadt's article as motivated mainly by a disagreement with "Levi's reputation as a liberal Diaspora Jew." (p.482) Shortly after, Levi wrote to his translator that "It is not merely for this episode that I have lost my good humour." Her next novel Isaac and His Devils came in 1991 and was again widely acclaimed, described by Library Journal as a "rich novel, full of promise for the author's future." Set in rural New Hampshire, the novel's hero is Isaac Hooker, a half-deaf, half-blind, hugely fat and ambitious boy-genius and his struggle to fulfill his parents' blighted dreams. Her third novel, published in 1997 and set in the late 1980s New York art world, When the Sons of Heaven Meet the Daughters of the Earth, recounted the rise and fall of the now young painter, Isaac Hooker. Eberstadt began writing essays and criticism for such publications as Commentary, The New Yorker, Vogue, New York Times Magazine, and Vanity Fair. Her widely cited essay "The Palace and the City," about the Sicilian writer Lampedusa and the politics of urban restoration in Palermo, was published in the December 23, 1991 issue of The New Yorker. In more recent years, she has worked extensively for The New York Times Magazine, publishing profiles of the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Orhan Pamuk, of Moroccan-based Spanish writer Juan Goytisolo ,and the Portuguese novelist Jose Saramago, as well as of indie-rock group Cocorosie. Following her pattern of a six-year interval between novels, Eberstadt published The Furies in 2003. Praised by Kirkus Reviews, Booklist, Publishers Weekly, and the New York Times Book Review, fellow writer Bret Easton Ellis called it "spellbinding", and the New York Observer said "The Furies veers pretty close to genius." John Updike, reviewing "Little Money Street" in "The New Yorker," described Eberstadt as "ambitious, resourceful novelist." Life in FranceIn 1998, Eberstadt went to live on a vineyard in the French Pyrenees, outside the city of Perpignan. She became friends with a family of French gypsy musicians. Her first work of non-fiction, Little Money Street - In Search of Gypsies and Their Music in the South of France, which portrays that friendship, was released by Knopf in March 2006. Luc Sante called the book "passionate, intimate, at once exhilarating and despairing, a rich and profound work of high nonfiction literature. A portrait of the Gypsies of southwestern France, it is also about family, about consumerism, and about the ruthlessness of a world in which there is no more open world." Eberstadt and her husband, Alaistair Meddon Oswald Bruton, a journalist whom she married on June 5, 1993, live in France; they have two children. Her sixth book, a novel called RAT, was published by Alfred A. Knopf in March 2010. RAT tells the story of a 15-year-old girl who set off on a journey from rural France to London, with her adopted brother in search of her birth father and a better life. It received very good reviews with Booklist calling it "mythic, gritty and unforgettable." wikipedia-org-wiki-Fernanda_Eberstadt Aus: wikipedia-org , ISBN-13: 9783499244162

Ebel, Otto: Women Composers: A Biographical Handbook of Woman's Work in Music (1902) KESSINGER PUB CO, November 2007 ISBN: 9780548803523
Sofort lieferbar! Restauflage in gutem Zustand. Rechnung mit MwSt. Kartoniert / Broschiert, 164 S., 22,9cm x 15,2cm x 1,0cm, VTb t Has Woman Accomplished in Music 7 This question, frequently asked in a pessimistic way, the following pages will attempt to answer. Woman has accomplished comparatively more in the field of music than is generally known, though nature, so far s lias not produced a woman composer whose compo sitions will compare with the works of the great masters. But let us ask, how many of the numerous composers of the sterner sex have proven themselves real Titans of music Few indeed, these come only in a cycle of years. Why then have women been less numerous in a field where one would think their natural inclinations would lead them The principal reason, I believe, has been the fact that women have only recently entered seriously this field of art, while man has for centuries developed his intellect and emotion in such a direction. We must consider, that scarcely fifty years ago, music, with very few exceptions, was never seriously at tempted as a study by women not from any disinclina tion for or want of capacity to understand the science, but because the subjects of harmony and counterpoint, bad. hitherto been considered outside the province of womens education, and the acquirement of such knowl edge, other than as a pastime, would have been regarded as a mental aberration. It is only within the last 10 15 years that the preju dice which excluded women from studying the violin, cello and other stringed and wind instruments has been overcome. Previous to 1876 no female students of the violin were admitted at the High School, I ondon. For a long time women were not permitted to com pete for prizes or receive diplomas at Kuropean Conser vatories and Colleges. When Elizabeth Sterling pace in.seated her beautiful CXXX Psalm for five voices and orchestra to Oxford for the degree of Mus. Bac., the de gree, although the work was accepted, and its merit acknowledged, could not be given for want of power to fvuftr the stime itpon a woman. Is it then to be wondered at that womens work in music has shown comparatively small results If practice not only improves, but increases capacity, and opportu nity makes while it also develops the musician, what opportunities have woman had of becoming musicians from the time of Palestrina to the middle of the igih century They were taught music as a pastime, and then only in its most primitive form, their musical studies seldom advancing beyond playing the lute and kindred instru ments. They had no incentives to composition, the church even discouraging women, throughout mediaeval times, and by actual prohibition in the i6th. century, to take any active musical part in its service. Not many years have passed, when to be told that a composition was the work of a woman, was equivalent to its condemnation beforehand. The scarcity of womens work in music in the past is therefor not owing to their inability to grasp and apply the science, but it may rather be attributed to prejudice and the rules of fashion and custom, which so long de terred her from entering this field of useful and profit able work and study. That such prejudice against womens work must have temled to depress and discourage, is certain, and is best shown by the fact of many women composers concealing their identity under male noms-de-plume on the title pages of their compositions. Augusta Holmes published works as Herman Zenta, Mme. de Grandval used several Clement Val grand, etc, lime. La Hye signed as Leon St. Amans, IV. Mrs. John Macfarren as kk Jules Brissac, Mrs. Roeckel as Jules de SIvrai, and so forth. Others again published their names on their works with only the Initials of their Christian names prefixed, , like Farrenc, Chaminade in her earlier works . Lebeau, Ethel 31. Smyth Mass in D and man y others, even to the present day. It must therefor be considered a great point gained, that it is no longer looked upon as an eccentricity for women to compose...
