LIGAÇÕES PERIGOSAS, AS - Choderlos de Laclos, Tradução e posfácio de Fernando Cacciatore de Garcia

A crítica, que não poupou adjetivos para desclassificar As ligações perigosas quando do seu lançamento, em 1782, não chegou nem perto de captar a poderosa ambigüidade deste marco da literatura epistolar. Choderlos de Laclos (1741-1803) construiu um romance em cujo primeiro plano se destacam as relações amorosas, a perda da inocência e a traição, mas cujo pano de fundo é um dos mais sofisticados e ferinos retratos da aristocracia pré-Revolução Francesa e uma sofisticada reflexão sobre a hipocrisia do poder. Além disso, o livro teve inúmeras adaptações para o teatro e para o cinema.

Millennium - A Rainha do Castelo de Ar (Vol. 3)

Neste livro grande parte dos segredos é desvendada, e Lisbeth Salander agora conta com excelentes aliados. O principal é Mikael Blomkvist, jornalista investigativo que já desbaratou esquemas fraudulentos e solucionou crimes escabrosos. No mesmo front estão ainda Annika Giannini, irmã de Mikael, advogada especializada em defender mulheres vítimas de violência, e o inspetor Jan Bublanski, que segue sua própria linha investigativa, na contramão da promotoria.

"A Rainha do Castelo de Ar" mistura o universo muitas vezes corrupto do mercado financeiro à invasão de privacidade, trata da violência sexual contra as mulheres aos movimentos neofascistas e do abuso de poder de uma maneira geral. The Girl Who Played with Fire. The Girl Who Played with Fire (Swedish: Flickan som lekte med elden) is the second novel in the best-selling Millennium series by Swedish writer Stieg Larsson.

The Girl Who Played with Fire

It was published posthumously in Swedish in 2006 and in English in January 2009.

GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, THE. Livros, Tablets, Blu-Ray, Eletrônicos, Notebooks, Smartphones... Livraria Cultura. Livraria da Travessa. Livraria Leonardo da Vinci. Philippa Gregory - Official Website of Best Selling Author. Wildacre Trilogy. This was the book that I was longing to write from the moment that I finished Wideacre as it was the conclusion of the story and the happy ending.

Wildacre Trilogy

I had a wonderful summer of research when I stayed with a circus for the summer season and travelled with them and worked as a circus hand so that I could understand the life. The Wiltshire sequences are set in a well-loved house near Warminster where I used to stay as a child, and the return to Wideacre took me back to my beloved Sussex. The London sequences I traced out walking around London with a valuable 18th century map as my A to Z, seeing where Meridon might live and how she would ride in the park. It was a hugely joyful book to write and I foresaw in it a happy time for myself, and the horse that I bought after writing about Meridon's beloved grey horse: my own grey horse, Comet.

Casa de Tudor. Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre.

Casa de Tudor

A Casa de Tudor foi uma dinastia de monarcas britânicos que reinou na Inglaterra entre o fim da Guerra das Rosas entre 1485 e 1603. O Amante da Virgem. The Queen's Fool. Whenever people tell me their favourite of all my books, this is the one that is most often mentioned.

The Queen's Fool

The Other Queen. It is a challenge to write a novel about Mary Queen of Scots - so much has been written about her already - a play and an opera as well as dozens of histories.

The Other Queen

In this novel I looked at her long years of imprisonment and the extraordinary triangle that developed between her, her gaoler the Earl of Shrewsbury and his wonderful wife Bess of Hardwick. The dynamic between these three makes this novel not just an historical novel about the times but a psychological study of three people trapped together.

Elizabeth I has been Queen of England for 10 years. She is still unmarried, despite considering several suitors and also conducting a love affair with the married Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester - whose wife would later die under suspicious circumstances. With no heir, Elizabeth refused to name a successor - leading to the dissolution of parliament and putting England in a potentially dangerous position. There are no downloads. The Other Boleyn Girl. This has to be one of my favourite books of all time for it is the one that made my name, was adapted by the BBC and Hollywood, and established the style that has come to be my 'signature' style: the first person view of history from a lesser known, or perhaps unknown historical character.

The Other Boleyn Girl

Mary Boleyn was a great find and this novel has given rise to three biographies about her, and established her as an historical character instead of being the sister that nobody knew about. King Henry VIII is married to his brother's widow, Katherine of Aragon who has given him a daughter, Princess Mary. A Herança de Ana Bolena. The Constant Princess. Splendid and sumptuous historical novel from this internationally bestselling author, telling of the early life of Katherine of Aragon.

The Constant Princess

We think of her as the barren wife of a notorious king; but behind this legacy lies a fascinating story. Katherine of Aragon is born Catalina, the Spanish Infanta, to parents who are both rulers and warriors. Aged four, she is betrothed to Arthur, Prince of Wales, and is raised to be Queen of England. She is never in doubt that it is her destiny to rule that far-off, wet, cold land. Her faith is tested when her prospective father-in-law greets her arrival in her new country with a great insult; Arthur seems little better than a boy; the food is strange and the customs coarse. Slowly she adapts to the first Tudor court, and life as Arthur’s wife grows ever more bearable.

His father and grandmother are against it; her powerful parents prove little use. Guerra das Rosas. Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre. A Guerra das Rosas ou Guerra das Duas Rosas foi uma série de lutas dinásticas pelo trono da Inglaterra, ocorridas ao longo de trinta anos (entre 1455 e 1485) de forma intermitente, durante os reinados de Henrique VI, Eduardo IV e Ricardo III. The White Princess. Oh! I love this book so much. The White Queen. This was my first step back in time from the Tudors. I had read that Elizabeth of York, wife of Henry VII had been Richard III's lover, and this was such an extraordinary claim that I started to read about her, and from her to her mother, the almost-unknown Elizabeth Woodville.

When I started to look at her there was only one reliable biography, by historian David Baldwin, and it was on his biography and my own research that I based this first book in the series that has gone on to be a major BBC TV series. The country has been torn apart by the Wars of the Roses between the royal houses of York and Lancaster. The old king Henry VI and his wife Margaret of Anjou have escaped to Scotland and the Lancastrian armies have been decimated by the York forces at the Battle of Towton - the bloodiest ever fought on English soil. The Kingmaker's Daughter. Nearly named the Kingmaker's Daughters, this is the story of Isabel and Anne Neville, daughters to the Earl of Warwick who fought for both York and Lancaster, but always for himself. Anne is married to Prince Edward and could easily have been a Lancastrian Queen of England but for the fortunes of war which meant that she married Richard III and became a York Queen of England.

It's a story about ambition and the price that has to be paid. King Edward IV's secret marriage Elizabeth Woodville, fractured his relationship with his cousin and supporter Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick who was known as 'The Kingmaker'. Warwick believed that he would be in a position to rule England through Edward, when he could not, he began to look elsewhere for power and used his daughters Isabel and Anne to create new alliances. The Lady of the Rivers. Descended from Melusina, the river goddess, Jacquetta has always had the gift of second sight. As a child visiting her uncle, she meets his prisoner, Joan of Arc, and sees her own power reflected in the young woman accused of witchcraft, before Joan is taken to a horrific death at the hands of the English rulers of France.

Married to the Duke of Bedford, English Regent of France, Jacquetta is introduced by him to a mysterious world of learning and alchemy. Her only friend in the great household is the Duke’s squire, Richard Woodville, who is at her side when the Duke’s death leaves her a wealthy young widow. The Red Queen. As soon as I had completed my research on The White Queen I realised that I wanted to write a companion novel about the other side, the Tudors and Margaret Beaufort the matriarch of their house. Now a grown man, Henry VI has maintained his hold on the English throne, despite decades of political and military challenges by the House of York. The Hundred Years' War comes to an end in France and England is defeated, losing all of her territory except for Calais.

News of defeat drives King Henry into an unresponsive stupor.
