Créée en 1994 à Paris dans une distribution irréprochable (Vaneck, Luchini, Arditi), la pièce « Art » a fait connaître Yasmina Reza sur les scènes du monde entier. C´est dire l´universalité des thèmes, l´humanité des personnages et la virtuosité des dialogues, qui font de cette pièce un classique de la comédie de moeurs. Comme chez Molière et Labiche, Feydeau et Jean-Michel Ribes, les élèves découvriront que le « goût des autres » reste le plus efficace des ressorts dramatiques, et combien la fantaisie la plus extravagante peut révéler d´angoisses existentielles.
Ausgangspunkt dieser postmodernen Farce ist der Kauf eines Gemäldes: ganz weiß, horrend teuer, aber modern. Als der stolze Erwerber es seinen beiden Freunden zeigt, erntet er nur Missverständnis. Eine langjährige Freundschaft droht zu zerbrechen.
For more than 2,000 years, Sun Tzu´s The Art of War has provided leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics, managing troops and terrain, and employing cunning and deception. An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone for the Western struggle for survival and success, whether in battle, in business or in relationships. Now, in this crisp, accessible new translation, John Minford brings this seminal work to life for today´s readers. A lively, learned introduction, chronologies and suggested further reading are among the valuable apparatus included in this authoritative volume. Even those readers familiar with The Art of War will experience it anew, finding it more fascinating - and more chilling - than ever. Little is known about Sun Tzu (544-496 B.C.) and his life during the Warring States period after the decline of the Zhou dysnasty, but his classic, The Art of War, has been one of the central works of Chinese literature for 2500 years.
This classic Chinese text, the earliest known treatise on war, offers strategy and tactics that can be applied to every type of human conflict. Central to Sun Tzu´s philosophy is the concept of using deception and superior intelligence to minimize risk, which has made his book required reading at military, business, and law schools around the world. With a Foreword by B.H. Liddell Hart and a 74-page Introduction, this deluxe edition--beautifully presented in a sumptuous silk hardcover--is a standout offering in the successful Art of Wisdom series.
