"Ravensnest oder die Rothhäute" (engl. "The Redskins; or, Indian and Injin: Being the Conclusion of the Littlepage Manuscripts") ist ein 1846 veröffentlichter Roman des amerikanischen Schriftstellers James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851).



James Fenimore Cooper (* 15. September 1789 in Burlington, New Jersey als James Cooper; † 14. September 1851 in Cooperstown, New York) war ein amerikanischer Schriftsteller der Romantik. Cooper ist in vielerlei Hinsicht eine Schlüsselfigur der amerikanischen Literatur. Neben Washington Irving war er der erste amerikanische Schriftsteller, der von seinen Büchern leben konnte. Er blieb bis weit in das 20. Jahrhundert hinein auch in Europa der wohl meistgelesene. Nach dem Vorbild Sir Walter Scotts schrieb er die ersten historischen Romane und die ersten Seefahrtsromane der amerikanischen Literatur. Sein umfangreiches Werk umfasst weiter zahlreiche historiografische Werke, Essays und Satiren über Amerika wie Europa. Besonders bekannt sind bis heute seine fünf "Lederstrumpf"-Romane, die die Erschließung des amerikanischen Westens durch weiße Scouts, Trapper und Siedler, aber auch die allmähliche Zurückdrängung und Vernichtung der indianischen Kultur thematisieren.

"Ich bin kein Mensch, ich bin Dynamit.", Friedrich Nietzsche

Zum 100. Todestag des großen Philosophen am 25. August 2000

Die hochgelobte Goldmann-Ausgabe der gesammelten Werke in komplett neuer Ausstattung.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche wird am 15. Oktober 1844 als Sohn eines protestantischen Pfarrers geboren. Er studiert klassische Philosophie in Bonn und Leipzig, wo er Richard Wagner kennenlernt, den er anfangs verehrt, von dem er sich aber bald entfremdet. 1869 wird Nietzsche noch vor seiner Promotion Professor der klassischen Philosophie in Basel. 1876/77 wird er aus Gesundheitsgründen zunächst vorläufig, 1879 dann endgültig in den Ruhestand versetzt; seitdem widmet er sich ausschließlich der Vollendung seines philosophischen Werkes. Rastlos wechselt er seine Wohn- und Arbeitsorte: Von Rapallo über S. Margherita und Sorrent nach Mentone, Genua, Nizza, Turin und Sils-Maria. 1882 lernt Nietzsche in Rom Lou Andreas-Salomé kennen, mit der er eine intellektuelle Freundschaft pflegt. Im Januar 1889 erleidet Nietzsche in Turin einen paralytischen Anfall, von dem er sich nie wieder richtig erholt. Am 25. August 1900 stirbt er in Weimar.

Friedrich Nietzsche ist einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Philosophen. Sein Werk hat das Denken im 20. Jahrhundert weltweit maßgeblich beeinflußt.

Alle Bände mit einem Nachwort, einer Zeittafel zu Nietzsche, Anmerkungen und bibliographischen Hinweisen von Prof. Dr. Peter Pütz, Professor für neuere deutsche Literatur an der Universität Bonn.

The first of the five Leatherstocking Tales, The Pioneers is perhaps the most realistic and beautiful of the series. Drawing on his own experiences, Cooper brilliantly describes Frontier life, providing a fascinating backdrop to the real heart of the novel--the competing claims to land ownership of Native Americans and settlers. This edition follows the publication of The Last of the Mohicans in the World's Classics series and uses the standard text approved by the Modern Language Association.

Quotes from the book:

“The ministry proffered various civil offices which yielded not only honor but profit; but he declined them all, with the chivalrous independence and loyalty that had marked his character through life. The veteran soon caused this set of patriotic disinterestedness to be followed by another of private munificence, that, however little it accorded with prudence, was in perfect conformity with the simple integrity of his own views.”

“The eyes of his auditors involuntarily met; and, if the color that gathered over the face of Elizabeth was contradicted by the cold expression of her eye, the ambiguous smile that again played about the lips of the stranger seemed equally to deny the probability of his consenting to form one of this family group. The scene was one, however, which might easily warm a heart less given to philanthropy than that of Marmaduke Temple.”

“Time and practice did wonders for the physician. He was naturally humane, but possessed of no small share of moral courage; or, in other words, he was chary of the lives of his patients, and never tried uncertain experiments on such members of society as were considered useful; but, once or twice, when a luckless vagrant had come under his care, he was a little addicted to trying the effects of every phial in his saddle-bags on the strangers constitution.”

Readers' reviews:

“The Pioneers was a very good read. I enjoyed the history and love for nature that Cooper expresses through his characters. Some parts dragged on, but he was very detailed. If you have seen the movie or read the book, The Last of the Mohicans, I definitely suggest this book because they both have many similarities dealing with the development of society for Indians and the rest of the country.” (Tonya Heiman, goodreads.com)

“Once you get beyond the overly descriptive and romanticized language of Fenimore Cooper's novel, it's actually a really interesting tale about new born America and it's relationship not only with the natives but with each other.” (Rachel, goodreads.com)

“I've read this book twice. Cooper really knows how to paint a scene on the mind.” (Carl Purdon, goodreads.com)
