Sample Book Insights: #1 The miasma theory, which was the prevailing theory in medieval Europe, stated that diseases arose from bad smells. Medieval physicians and scholars believed that diseases were caused by foul airs, and therefore, they would often force local residents to clear away their waste. #2 The disease Rhazes wrote about in the tenth century was similar to chicken pox. He thought that people’s basic constitutions determined whether they suffered from smallpox or measles. #3 The first known disease that afflicted humans was the plague, which was spread by fleas. It was first diagnosed in 1414 in Paris, and was believed to be caused by dying flowers. #4 The Black Death, also known as the Plague of Justinian, was a disease that swept through Europe in the sixth and seventh centuries AD. It was brought to England by the Romans, and it was also known as the Plague of Cadwalader’s Time in Ireland.

Book The Complete Dramatic Works of Tang Xianzu

Download or read book The Complete Dramatic Works of Tang Xianzu written by Tang Xianzu and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2018-02-22 with total page 1072 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tang Xianzu (1550–1616) is acclaimed as the 'Shakespeare of the East' and widely regarded as China's greatest playwright, yet his work has not reached Western readers in its entirety. The Complete Dramatic Works of Tang Xianzu represents a literary landmark: this is the first English-language collection of the revered dramatist's most important works to be made available outside China. Translated over two decades, the collection showcases the playwright's major pieces, including The Purple Flute, The Purple Hairpins, The Nanke Dream, The Handan Dream – and The Peony Pavilion. The Peony Pavilion is the playwright's most celebrated work and has drawn comparisons to Homer's Odyssey, Virgil's Aeneid, Dante's Divine Comedy and John Milton's Paradise Lost. Known for his lyrical use of metaphor, Tang Xianzu weaves the beauty of nature with the tragedy of emotion. His plays offer an extensive exploration of love, and remain at the heart of Chinese culture. This important collection represents an opportunity for a wider audience to discover the profound and poetic works of this classic playwright.

In her quest for answers, Nora mounts a fresh expedition to follow her father's path and find Quivira. In doing so, she hopes not only to solve her own personal mysteries, but many of the mysteries of her profession as well.
