25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION - WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR 'A true diamond of a novel, glinting with comedy and tragedy' Daily Mail It is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island of Cephallonia as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals but over time he proves himself to be civilised, humorous – and a consummate musician. When Pelagia, the local doctor's daughter, finds her letters to her fiancé go unanswered, Antonio and Pelagia draw close and the working of the eternal triangle seems inevitable. But can this fragile love survive as a war of bestial savagery gets closer and the lines are drawn between invader and defender? 'Louis de Bernières is in the direct line that runs through Dickens and Evelyn Waugh...he has only to look into his world, one senses, for it to rush into reality, colours and touch and taste' Evening Standard

Soon after film came into existence, the term epic was used to describe productions that were lengthy, spectacular, live with action, and often filmed in exotic locales with large casts and staggering budgets. The effort and extravagance needed to mount an epic film paid off handsomely at the box office, for the genre became an immediate favorite with audiences. Epic films survived the tribulations of two world wars and the Depression and have retained the basic characteristics of size and glamour for more than a hundred years. Length was, and still is, one of the traits of the epic, though monolithic three- to four-hour spectacles like Gone with the Wind (1939) and Lawrence of Arabia (1962) have been replaced today by such franchises as the Harry Potter films and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Although the form has evolved during many decades of existence, its central elements have been retained, refined, and modernized to suit the tastes of every new generation. The Encyclopedia of Epic Films identifies, describes, and analyzes those films that meet the criteria of the epic—sweeping drama, panoramic landscapes, lengthy adventure sequences, and, in many cases, casts of thousands. This volume looks at the wide variety of epics produced over the last century—from the silent spectacles of D. W. Griffith and biblical melodramas of Cecil B. DeMille to the historical dramas of David Lean and rollercoaster thrillers of Steven Spielberg. Each entry contains: Major personnel behind the camera, including directors and screenwriters Cast and character listings Plot summary Analysis Academy Award wins and nominations DVD and Blu-ray availability Resources for further study This volume also includes appendixes of foreign epics, superhero spectaculars, and epics produced for television, along with a list of all the directors in the book. Despite a lack of overall critical recognition and respect as a genre, the epic remains a favorite of audiences, and this book pays homage to a form of mass entertainment that continues to fill movie theaters. The Encyclopedia of Epic Films will be of interest to academics and scholars, as well as any fan of films made on a grand scale.

In short, it is a powerful shorthand for conveying ideas and information. Words are drawn from many different worlds including art, artists, crafts and design, painting, printing and sculpture, the decorative arts, gems, fashion, textiles and clothing, cosmetics, hair and complexion, physics, maths, astronomy, and many others. This is a book for reference and for entertainment, for the professional and academic as well as the word-lover. It will prove valuable for writers, journalists and copywriters, graphic, textile and fashion designers, artists and illustrators, art students, art critics, decorators, architects, set designers, colourists and dye-makers, colour scientists, paint manufacturers, product designers and originators, marketers -in short, a book to delight and intrigue lovers of colour and language everywhere.

Malicious nemeses continue to plot against Matthew and Maria as they race toward destiny. Book three sets in place the pieces of a puzzling mosaic. With an extrasensory gift for finding evidence and unraveling clues, Maria focusses on the files of murdered college students. All the while, Matthew advances his studies in law and science as he struggles to solve the mystery of the most significant quantum energy quest in history. The ghost of Cracker Jack, the three dead crows, Matthew's nefarious brother, and the Jobrani Maher brothers confound the sharpest law enforcement minds. Does Chief Tanner have the answers? Is Estebanez MIA? Will Agent Flannigan fail again? Who is Alex Scofield? Who is Francis O'Connell? Who is stalking Penelope? Time is running out as the hours click away. Book three in the Perpetual series trolls through the hooking plots of the first two books. Once again, Matthew and Maria's lives encounter chaos. Perpetual Abduction reels you in toward a heart-wrenching end.
