Dublin

Серия: "-"

Edward Rutherfurd's great Irish epic reveals the story of the people of Ireland through the focal point of the island's capital city. The epic begins in pre-Christian Ireland during the reign of the fierce and powerful High Kings at Tara, with the tale of two lovers, the princely Conall and the ravishing Deirdre, whose travails echo the ancient Celtic legend of Cuchulainn. From this stirring beginning, Rutherfurd takes the reader on a graphically realised journey through the centuries. Through the interlocking stories of a powerfully-imagined cast of characters - druids and chieftains, monks and smugglers, merchants and mercenaries, noblewomen, rebels and cowards - we see Ireland through the lens of its greatest city.

Edward Rutherfurd (born 1948 in Salisbury, England) is primarily known as a writer of epic historical novels. His debut novel "Sarum" set the pattern for his work with a ten-thousand year storyline.

"Edward Rutherfurd" is probably a pen name for Francis Edward Wintle.

Biography

Educated locally, and at the Universities of Cambridge, and Stanford, he worked in political research, bookselling and publishing. After numerous attempts to write books and plays, he finally abandoned his career in the book trade in 1983, and returned to his childhood home to write "Sarum", a historical novel with a ten-thousand year story, set in the area around the ancient monument of Stonehenge, and Salisbury. Four years later, when the book was published, it became an instant international bestseller, remaining 23 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. Since then he has written five more bestsellers: "Russka", a novel of Russia; "London"; "The Forest", set in England's New Forest which lies close by Sarum, and two novels, "Dublin: Foundation" ("The Princes of Ireland") and "Ireland: Awakening" ("The Rebels of Ireland"), which cover the story of Ireland from the time just before Saint Patrick to the twentieth century. His books have been translated into twenty languages. Rutherfurd settled near Dublin, Ireland in the early 1990s, but currently divides his time between Europe and North America. [Edward Rutherfurd Official Website; See also: "A Tale of Ireland Forever, or at Least 1,100 Years" , [http://www.nytimes.com/2004/04/28/books/28RUTH.html?ei=5007&en=48830b01d42a248c&ex=1398484800&adxnnl=1&partner=USERLAND&adxnnlx=1185552619-dXCRnLyOWBkeDc5iWQXgfw] ,Mel Gussow, 4/28/2004,New York Times]

Rutherfurd’s novels chronicle the history of settlements through their development up to modern day, mixing fictional characters and families with real people and events – a kind of historical fiction pioneered by James Michener.

tyle

Known as a James Michener disciple, [Quilligan, Maureen, "Older Than Texas, Bigger Than Israel", "New York Times Book Review", 9/13/1987; see also: Lehmann-Haupt, Christopher, "London: Greed, Lust and Glory on the Thames", [http://www.nytimes.com/books/97/08/03/daily/london-book-review.html?] "New York Times", 8/7/1997] Rutherfurd invents four to six fictional families and tells the stories of their descendants. Using this framework, he weaves them in and out of historical situations, having them interact not only with each other, but also with significant historical figures. As a result, his books serve an educational purpose.

Format

Rutherfurd's novels are generally at least 500 pages and sometimes even over 1,000. Divided into a number of parts, each chapter represents a different era in the area of the novel's history. There is always an extensive family tree in the introduction, and each generational line matches with the corresponding chapters.

*"Sarum" (1987) latterly titled "Sarum: the Novel of England"
