• Le texte officiel de la production originale du West End (Londres) d'Harry Potter et l'Enfant Maudit.

    Être Harry Potter n'a jamais été facile et ne l'est pas davantage depuis qu'il est un employé surmené du Ministère de la Magie, marié et père de trois enfants.

    Tandis que Harry se débat avec un passé qui refuse de le laisser en paix, son plus jeune fils, Albus, doit lutter avec le poids d'un héritage familial dont il n'a jamais voulu. Le destin vient fusionner passé et présent. Père et fils se retrouvent face à une dure vérité: parfois, les ténèbres surviennent des endroits les plus inattendus.

    Le texte de la pièce Harry Potter et l'enfant maudit a initialement été publié comme une « édition spéciale répétition », parue à l'été 2016, en même temps que la première de la pièce de Jack Thorne dans le West End londonien. La pièce de théâtre, d'après une histoire originale de J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany et Jack Thorne, a été accueillie avec enthousiasme par les spectateurs comme les critiques, tandis que le texte officiel devenait instantanément un bestseller mondial.

    Cette version définitive et finale de la pièce met à jour l' « édition spéciale répétition », avec le dialogue définitif de la pièce, qui a subtilement changé depuis les répétitions, complété par un entretien entre le metteur en scène John Tiffany et l'auteur Jack Thorne. Ils y partagent quelques histoires et réflexions à propos de la lecture de pièces de théâtre. Cette édition comprend également des informations contextuelles utiles, notamment l'arbre généalogique de la famille Potter et une chronologie des événements se déroulant dans le monde des sorciers avant le début d'Harry Potter et l'enfant maudit.

  • "Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'." Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

  • "'Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you anywhere you want to go.'" When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss...

  • "'There is a plot, Harry Potter. A plot to make most terrible things happen at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year.'"

Students are found as though turned to stone... Dobby's sinister predictions seem to be coming true.

  • "'Give me Harry Potter,' said Voldemort's voice, 'and none shall be harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave the school untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.'" As he climbs into the sidecar of Hagrid's motorbike and takes to the skies, leaving Privet Drive for the last time, Harry Potter knows that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters are not far behind. The protective charm that has kept Harry safe until now is broken, but he cannot keep hiding. The Dark Lord is breathing fear into everything Harry loves and to stop him Harry will have to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes. The final battle must begin - Harry must stand and face his enemy...

  • "There it was, hanging in the sky above the school: the blazing green skull with a serpent tongue, the mark Death Eaters left behind whenever they had entered a building... wherever they had murdered..." When Dumbledore arrives at Privet Drive one summer night to collect Harry Potter, his wand hand is blackened and shrivelled, but he does not reveal why. Secrets and suspicion are spreading through the wizarding world, and Hogwarts itself is not safe. Harry is convinced that Malfoy bears the Dark Mark: there is a Death Eater amongst them. Harry will need powerful magic and true friends as he explores Voldemort's darkest secrets, and Dumbledore prepares him to face his destiny...

  • "'You are sharing the Dark Lord's thoughts and emotions. The Headmaster thinks it inadvisable for this to continue. He wishes me to teach you how to close your mind to the Dark Lord.'" Dark times have come to Hogwarts. After the Dementors' attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord's return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the Dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort's savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time...

  • "'There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways ... their magical prowess - their daring - their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger.'" The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons and Dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!

  • The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

    It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
    While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
    The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official playscript became an immediate global bestseller.
    This definitive and final playscript updates the 'special rehearsal edition' with the conclusive and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share stories and insights about reading playscripts. This edition also includes useful background information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the Wizarding World prior to the beginning of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

  • Jack Shadow. Because some days - the last thing you need is a good guy. He's heard them - every one of them. The jokes. They all start out the same. "See, this guy walks into a bar..." Well, that's not him. That guy who walked into a bar. He's the guy who walked out. It's not amnesia. Near as anyone knows, he just doesn't have a past. Near as anyone knows - or admits to. He doesn't walk round a corner, and some guy from a car shoots at him because of something he did long ago. Sure. Guys shoot at him. Hell, women too. But not for long ago. Mostly for last week. Where 'last week' is any week you choose. No, he just walked out of a bar. Were there piles of dead bodies behind him? A stacked deck he was dealing, or one he was dealt? He doesn't know. Or care. But they were waiting, and they took him. The Dragon. Took him to make a difference. To wait for the time a beat of a gnat's wing could change tomorrow. And Jack's the gnat. Jack walked out of a bar. The rest - the rest will be history. Some day. Not that he'll be in it. Nobody remembers the gnats. Not if they did their job right. And Jack's the best there is.

  • A diferencia de un cuadro, que absorbe los colores de la luz y los retiene, una vidriera recibe la luz y la difunde al ambiente: el efecto es prodigioso, un espectáculo sorprendente.
    Además, el arte de realizar vidrieras es el único que no teme los errores: al contrario, los aprovecha. Imprecisiones en la coloración, burbujas de aire y alteraciones del vidrio determinan peculiares y luminosas iridiscencias que aumentan la fascinación de las vidrieras: aunque no sea todavía un artista, ¡el vidrio lo hará casi todo por sí solo!
    Podrá practicar con los diferentes cortes del vidrio, la coloración manual, el ensamblaje de las piezas y la utilización más adecuada de las vidrieras para las puertas, las ventanas, las mamparas, las claraboyas, etc.
    Aprenderá a conocer, distinguir y escoger los vidrios de acuerdo con el proyecto: vidrios transparentes o grises, antiguos o soplados, iridiscentes, vidrios «catedral», etc., cada uno más mágico y encantador que el otro.
    El material necesario, las técnicas, los consejos, los accesorios: aquí encontrará todo, desde la utilización de la cinta de cobre para el ribeteado tipo «Tiffany» hasta las causas que provocan los errores más frecuentes.

  • "The Devil holds the strings which move us!" (Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil, 1857.)
    Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer... the Devil has many names and faces, all of which have always served artists as a source of inspiration. Often commissioned by religious leaders as images of fear or veneration, depending on the society, representations of the underworld served to instruct believers and lead them along the path of righteousness. For other artists, such as Hieronymus Bosch, they provided a means of denouncing the moral decrepitude of one's contemporaries.
    In the same way, literature dealing with the Devil has long offered inspiration to artists wishing to exorcise evil through images, especially the works of Dante and Goethe. In the 19th century, romanticism, attracted by the mysterious and expressive potential of the theme, continued to glorify the malevolent. Auguste Rodin's The Gates of Hell, the monumental, tormented work of a lifetime, perfectly illustrates this passion for evil, but also reveals the reason for this fascination. Indeed, what could be more captivating for a man than to test his mastery by evoking the beauty of the ugly and the diabolic?

  • Der Teufel hält die Fäden, die uns bewegen! (Charles Baudelaire, Die Blumen des Bsen, 1857.)
    Satan, Beelzebub, Luzifer der Teufel hat viele Namen und Gesichter; sie alle haben Künstlern stets als Inspirationsquelle gedient. Bilder von Teufeln wurden oftmals von kirchlichen Personen von hohem Rang in
    Auftrag gegeben, um, je nach Gesellschaft, mit Bildern der Furcht oder Ehrfurcht und mit Darstellungen der Hlle die Gläubigen zu bekehren und sie auf den von ihnen propagierten rechten Pfad der Tugend zu geleiten. Für andere Künstler, wie z. B. Hieronymus Bosch, waren sie ein Mittel, um den vlligen moralischen Verfall seiner Zeit anzuprangern.
    Auf dieselbe Weise hat die Beschäftigung mit dem Teufel in der Literatur oftmals Künstler inspiriert, die den Teufel mithilfe von Bildern austreiben wollten; dazu gehren insbesondere die Werke von Dante Allighieri und Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Im 19. Jahrhundert fühlte sich die Romantik zunächst von dem mysterisen und ausdrucksvollen Gehalt des Themas angezogen und setzte die Verherrlichung der Bswilligkeit fort.
    Auguste Rodins Hllentor, ein monumentales Lebenswerk, für das er sich sehr gequält hat, stellt nicht nur diese Leidenschaft für das Bse perfekt dar, sondern enthüllt auch den Grund für diese Faszination. Was knnte in der Tat fesselnder, motivierender für einen Mann sein, als seine künstlerische Meisterschaft zu prüfen, in dem er die Schnheit im Hässlichen und Diabolisch darstellt?

  • Chloe McBride has some reservations about accepting her elderly great-aunts' invitation to spend part of the summer with them in Little Venice, but her initial reluctance is outweighed by her curiosity about the mysterious key that came with her aunts' note. She's also anxious to put the humiliating memory of a disastrous piano recital as far behind her as possible. Chloe's great-aunts tell her the legend of her great-grandfather, Dante Magnus, an ambitious magician who vanished without a trace almost a century earlier, and Chloe begins to search for clues to his disappearance. When her investigations eventually lead her to a mysterious rosewood box, which has been hidden for almost a hundred years, Chloe's belief in the power of magic forces her to confront her own fears and ambitions.

  • Ryder, commander of the Levarian legion of gargoyles, has a problem. He keeps dreaming on duty...and falling...neither of which gargoyles ever do.

Driven to find the woman and the reason for his bizarre dreams, he lets himself fall... ...right through to a place he never knew existed...to the woman of his dreams. Labeled a misfit, Tempest was snatched away as a child and imprisoned in the hidden realm of Misfit Mountain. Locked up by Fedor, the ruler of the kingdom, who intends to take her as his bride, she has no choice but to brave the dangerous snow and ice of the Mountain to escape. Despairing, faced with the impossible choices of Fedor or death, love is the last thing on her mind, until Ryder snatches her from the air and into a whole new realm of feeling. Can Ryder find the key to freeing her and save them both?

  • El "sexto sentido" es la capacidad extrasensorial de percibir más allá de los recursos de nuestros cinco sentidos básicos (vista, oído, olfato, gusto y tacto). Esta percepción más allá de la frontera sensorial ha sido fuente de relatos asombrosos, testimonios y experiencias sin explicación aparente. Ursula Fortiz, autora cuyas obras se han traducido a 4 idiomas (francés, italiano, alemán y español), explica en este libro las experiencias psíquicas y propone descubrir este "continente escondido", esa parte de nosotros a la que pocas personas tienen acceso, con ángulos de iluminación originales: cómo se manifiesta el sexto sentido, con ejemplos de la vida cotidiana; las técnicas de las que disponemos para desarrollar nuestro sexto sentido: la meditación, la motivación, la visualización... ; las posibles interpretaciones de las manifestaciones del sexto sentido.

  • Era un genio para algunos; un médico maldito y un impostor para otros. Paracelso (1493-1541) aparece ante nosotros envuelto en un halo de misterio. Incluso hoy, aunque la mayoría de sus textos han sido traducidos, todavía parece desprenderse de sus controvertidas teorías y planear sobre su personalidad una atmósfera sulfurosa. Paracelso se presenta unas veces como un filósofo espiritualista, un teólogo o un humanista que va al encuentro de las ideas de su época; otras, como un destacado médico que exalta las virtudes de la Naturaleza, o como un alquimista, un «filósofo por el fuego», que recorre los rincones de la vieja Europa en busca de conocimientos ocultos y que realiza curaciones con profusión en su peregrinaje de médico nómada. Un libro único para conocer a este apasionante personaje.
