Plnou parou vpred, Timmy!


Knihu Plnou parou vpred, Timmy! nakreslil v polovici päťdesiatych rokov minulého storočia Jim Downer a verše k obrázkom napísal slávny anglický básnik Ted Hughes. Kniha sa dlhý čas sa považovala za stratenú, ale roku 2008 sa ju podarilo objaviť v Hughesovej pozostalosti a vydať. Knihu predkladáme čitateľom ako faksimile nádherných pôvodných ilustrácií v preklade Jána Gavuru.Timmy bol parník a vlečná loď, jagal sa ako gong, plavil sa po rieke, spod kolies hrala mu muzika. Zdravý bol, rybička, silnejší než Kráľ Kong, mal nový náter a drevo bez jediného červíka.Takto sa začína podmanivý príbeh Timmyho, zabudnutého riečneho parníka, ktorý sa jedného dňa sa rozhodne utiecť zo zátoky a preskúmať šíre moria. Timmy má srdce na správnom mieste a chce pomáhať, no dlho akoby o jeho pomoc nikto nestál. Až kým mu osud do ceste nepriveje nádhernú plachetnicu, ktorú treba zachrániť z pazúrov hroznej búrky. Čo myslíte, podarí sa mu to, nájde znova svoje stratené sebavedomie?

Kráska a zviera


Tri divadelné hry plné napätia, komiky a zmyslu pre spravodlivosť napísal známy anglický básnik Ted Hughes pre detské školské predstavenia. Dôvtip, invenčnosť a pocit, že v deťoch treba rozvíjať zmysel pre čarovné aj skutočné vnímanie sveta, sa preniesli aj do rozprávkových hier, a tak sa Sean, blázon, Diabol a mačky, Kráska a Zviera či Traja Králi stali zdrojom potešenia a poučenia pre veľkých i malých čitateľov. Knihu preložila Miroslava Gavurová a ilustrovala Miroslava Rudášová.

Dopisy k narozeninám


Dopisy k narozeninám Teda Hughese jsou adresovány (až na dvě výjimky) Sylvii Plathové, americké básnířce, s níž ho pojilo nejen sedmileté manželství, ale také dcera Frieda a syn Nicholas. Básně vznikaly během dlouhých pětatřiceti let: ty nejstarší Hughes napsal pouhých pár měsíců po sebevraždě Sylvie Plathové v roce 1963, ty poslední těsně před svým úmrtím v říjnu 1998. Dopisy k narozeninám jsou jeho jedinou výpovědí o partnerském vztahu se Sylvií i o bolestném, emocionálně vypjatém období, během něhož Plathová vytvořila své nejsilnějších básně a zároveň se rozhodla pro dobrovolný odchod ze života. Sbírka se okamžitě po vydání stala bestsellerem, byla ověnčena všemožnými respektovanými cenami, jako např. T.S. Eliot Prize, Forward Prize for Poetry či Whitbread Poetry Prize, a mnozí kritici ji považují za vrchol autorova díla.

Tom Brown´s Schooldays (Oxford World´s Classics)


A classic of Victorian literature, and one of the earliest books written specifically for boys, Tom Brown's Schooldays has long had an influence well beyond the middle-class, public school world that it describes. An active social reformer, Hughes wrote with a freshness, a lack of cant, and a kind, relaxed tolerance which keeps this novel refreshingly distinct from other schoolboy adventures. This edition is the only one available, and comes with the outstanding 1869 illustrations by Arthur Hughes.

Season Songs


Spring will marry you. A promise! Cuckoo brings the message: May. O new clothes! O get your house ready! Expectation keeps you starry. But at which church and on what day?In these poems Ted Hughes invites the reader to try and catch the spring (but she's elusive); to take a closer look at the March calf; to listen to the happiness of the summer grass; and to notice the 'weak-neck snowdrops' in winter. Earth is revealed in all its surprising richness and rawness, and so is humankind's own constantly changing relationship with the seasons.
