Quetzalcoatl (The Cambridge Edition of the Works o&hellip von N. H. Reeve

Until the release of the Cambridge edition, readers and scholars relied on the research results of Yale Sterling professor of history Louis L. Martz who made this "last unpublished manuscript" for the first time widely available (published in 1995, it is now out of print). This edition by professor Neil H. Reeve of the University of Wales at Swansea, is definitely more thorough because the Martz edition lacked a textual apparatus as well as a record of all revisions Lawrence made in the course of writing them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not quite Harlot's Ghost..., 17. August 2014
Das Spionagegenre bot in Krisenzeiten wie dem Kalten Krieg mit viel Exotik und Plots die sich in Abstrusität ständig überboten, eine Möglichkeit zur Realitätsflucht, wobei authentisch wirkende Darstellungen wie The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (Martin Ritt, 1965) eher die Ausnahme bildeten. In den vergangenen Jahren scheint jedoch diese von John le Carré gepflegte Wirklichkeitsnähe den früheren Eskapismus und lautes Spektakel erfolgreich beiseite zu drängen. Bemerkenswerte Beispiele dieses neueren Realismus sind historische Thriller wie Breach (2007) von Billy Ray, der den wahren Fall des FBI-Agenten Robert Hanssen schildert und Syriana (2005)… Mehr dazu
