Der Text, der sich mit seiner Bezeichnung als "dramatisches Gedicht" der Festlegung auf eine der dramatischen Gattungen entzieht, trug wesentlich dazu bei, den Blankvers als den klassischen deutschen Dramenvers zu etablieren. Mit seinem "Nathan" reagierte Lessing auf die religiöse Orthodoxie und Intoleranz seiner Zeit. Ort der Handlung ist Jerusalem während der Kreuzzüge – eine Stadt, in der Christentum, Islam und Judentum direkt aufeinandertreffen. Höhepunkt des Stücks, in dem es um eine moral- und geschichtsphilosophische Botschaft, um die Aufforderung zu Toleranz und Humanität geht, ist die berühmte Ringparabel, die der reiche jüdische Kaufmann Nathan erzählt: Sie soll die hintergründige Frage des Sultans Saladin beantworten, welche der drei Religionen die wahre sei. Nathans Antwort ist die Forderung nach einem gleichberechtigten Nebeneinander aller Religionen.

This early work by E. T. A. Hoffmann was originally published in 1814. Born in Königsberg, East Prussia in 1776, Hoffmann's family were all jurists, and during his youth he was initially encouraged to pursue a career in law. However, in his late teens Hoffman became increasingly interested in literature and philosophy, and spent much of his time reading German classicists and attending lectures by, amongst others, Immanuel Kant. Hoffman went on to produce a great range of both literary and musical works. Probably Hoffman's most well-known story, produced in 1816, is 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King', due to the fact that – some seventy-six years later - it inspired Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker. In the same vein, his story 'The Sandman' provided both the inspiration for Léo Delibes's ballet Coppélia, and the basis for a highly influential essay by Sigmund Freud, called 'The Uncanny'. (Indeed, Freud referred to Hoffman as the "unrivalled master of the uncanny in literature.") Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.

Sam Dryden, retired special forces, lives a quiet life in a small town on the coast of Southern California. While out on a run in the middle of the night, a young girl runs into him on the seaside boardwalk. Barefoot and terrified, she's running from a group of heavily armed men with one clear goal—to kill the fleeing child. After Dryden helps her evade her pursuers, he learns that the eleven year old, for as long as she can remember, has been kept in a secret prison by forces within the government. But she doesn't know much beyond her own name, Rachel. She only remembers the past two months of her life—and that she has a skill that makes her very dangerous to these men and the hidden men in charge. Dryden, who lost his wife and young daughter in an accident five years ago, agrees to help her try to unravel her own past and make sense of it, to protect her from the people who are moving heaven and earth to find them both. Although Dryden is only one man, he's a man with the extraordinary skills and experience—as a Ranger, a Delta, and five years doing off-the-book black ops with an elite team. But, as he slowly begins to discover, the highly trained paramilitary forces on their heels is the only part of the danger they must face. Will Rachel's own unremembered past be the most deadly of them all?
