Описание: Much of Peter Ackroyd`s work has been concerned with the life and past of London but here, as a culmination, is his account of the city. For him it is an organism with its own laws of growth and change, so this is a biography rather than a history. This part covers London`s foundations.

Описание: Mary Lamb is confined by the restrictions of domesticity: her father is losing his mind, her mother watchful and hostile. The great solace of her life is her brother Charles, an aspiring writer. It is no surprise when Mary falls for the bookseller's son, antiquarian William Ireland, from whom Charles has purchased a book. But this is no ordinary book - it once belonged to William Shakespeare himself. And William Ireland with his green eyes and his red hair, is no ordinary young man...The Lambs of London brilliantly creates an urban world of scholars and entrepreneurs, a world in which a clever son will stop at nothing to impress his showman father, and no one knows quite what to believe. Ingenious and vividly alive, The Lambs of London is a poignant, gripping novel of betrayal and deceit.

Описание: A retelling by Peter Ackroyd. `The Canterbury Tales` is a major part of England`s literary heritage. From the exuberant Wife of Bath`s Arthurian legend to the Miller`s worldly, ribald farce, these tales can be taken as a mirror of fourteenth-century London. Incorporating every style of medieval narrative - bawdy anecdote, allegorical fable and courtly romance - the tales encompass a blend of universal human themes. Ackroyd`s retelling is a highly readable, prose version in modern English, using expletive and avoiding euphemism, making the Tales much more accessible to a new generation of readers.

Описание:

In this vividly descriptive short study, Peter Ackroyd tunnels down through the geological layers of London, meeting the creatures that dwell in darkness and excavating the lore and mythology beneath the surface.

There is a Bronze Age trackway below the Isle of Dogs, Anglo-Saxon graves rest under St. Pauls, and the monastery of Whitefriars lies beneath Fleet Street. To go under London is to penetrate history, and Ackroyd's book is filled with the stories unique to this underworld: the hydraulic device used to lower bodies into the catacombs in Kensal Green cemetery; the door in the plinth of the statue of Boadicea on Westminster Bridge that leads to a huge tunnel packed with cables for gas, water, and telephone; the sulphurous fumes on the Underground's Metropolitan Line. Highly imaginative and delightfully entertaining, London Under is Ackroyd at his best.

Описание: A massive bestseller in England, one of Britain's most popular and esteemed historians tells the epic story of the birth of the country The first in an extraordinary six-volume history, "Foundation "takes the reader from the primeval forests of England's prehistory to the death, in 1509, of the first Tudor king, Henry VII. Peter Ackroyd guides readers from the building of Stonehenge to the founding of the two great glories of medieval England: common law and the cathedrals. He shows glimpses of England's most distant past-- a Neolithic stirrup found in a grave, a Roman fort, a Saxon tomb, a medieval manor house--and describes in rich prose the successive waves of invaders who made England English, despite being themselves Roman, Viking, Saxon, or Norman French. With his accomplished skill for evoking time and place and his acute eye for the telling detail, Ackroyd recounts the story of warring kings, of civil strife and foreign wars. But he also gives a vivid sense of how the people lived in the country's early days: the homes they built, the clothes they wore, the food they ate, even the jokes they told. All are brought vividly to life through the narrative mastery of one of England's finest writers, calling to mind the absorbing royal portraits of Alison Weir and the revealing everyday details of Bill Bryson.

Описание: Peter Ackroyd`s method is to position Shakespeare in the close context of his world. In this way, he not only richly conjures up the texture of Shakespeare`s life, but also imparts an amazing amount of vivid, interesting material about place, period and background.
