Zwischen Anwesenheit Und Abwesenheit from the Author: Sascha Seiler. Diese Studie entwirft eine Typologie des Verschwindens in der Literatur und spannt dabei den Bogen von vormodernen Texten bis hin zur unmittelbaren Gegenwartsliteratur. Überall auf der Welt verschwinden Menschen: Sie werden entführt, verschleppt, heimlich ermordet; sie verlaufen sich oder gehen einfach weg. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, ob das Verschwinden als paradigmatisches Symptom der Moderne und Postmoderne angesehen werden kann. Untersucht werden zahlreiche literarische Texte, von Hawthorne über Poe, Borges, Auster bis hin zu Danielewski. Eine ausführliche Analyse gilt dem Werk Roberto Bolaños, der als Autor des Verschwindens schlechthin präsentiert wird.

And Then There Was No One from the Author: Gilbert Adair. The writer and professional controversialist Gustav Slavorigin is murdered in the small Swiss town of Meiringen during its annual Sherlock Holmes Festival, his body discovered with an arrow through the heart. With a price of ten million dollars on Slavorigin's head, almost none of the Festival's guests can be regarded as above suspicion. Except Evadne Mount, of course, the stubborn amateur sleuth and bestselling crime novelist from Gilbert Adair's The Act of Roger Murgatroyd and A Mysterious Affair of Style. Neither of those two cases, however, prepared her for the jaw-dropping twists of this new investigation, which climaxes at Meiringen's principal tourist attraction, the Reichenbach Falls the site of Holmes's fatal confrontation with his nemesis, Moriarty . . .

It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922, in Paris. One of the most important works of Modernist literature, it has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement." "Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking." Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904 (the day of Joyce's first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle). The title alludes to Odysseus (Latinised into Ulysses), the hero of Homer's Odyssey, and establishes a series of parallels between characters and events in Homer's poem and Joyce's novel (e.g., the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to Telemachus).
