The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough

 The Thorn Birds is a robust, romantic saga of a singular family, the Clearys. It begins in the early part of this century, when Paddy Cleary moves his wife, Fiona, and their seven children to Drogheda, the vast Australian sheep station owned by his autocratic and childless older sister; and it ends more than half a century later, when the only survivor of the third generation, the brilliant actress Justine O'Neill, sets a course of life and love halfway around the world from her roots.


The central figures in this enthralling story are the indomitable Meggie, the only Cleary daughter, and the one man she truly loves, the stunningly handsome and ambitious priest Ralph de Bricassart. Ralph's course moves him a long way indeed, from a remote Outback parish to the halls of the Vatican; and Meggie's except for a brief and miserable marriage elsewhere, is fixed to the Drogheda that is part of her bones - but the distance does not dim their feelings through it shapes their lives.

Wonderful characters people this book; strong and gentle, Paddy, hiding a private memory; dutiful Fiona, holding back love because it once betrayed her, violent, tormented Frank, and the other hardworking Cleary sons who give the boundless lands of Drogheda the energy and devotion most men save for women; Meggie; Ralph; and Meggie's children, Justine and Dane. And the land itself; stark, relentless in its demands, brilliant in its flowering, prey to gigantic cycles of drought and flood, rich when nature is bountiful, surreal like no other place on earth.

Genre


Aida Niedra was a Latvian writer. She is considered one of the most important Latvian women novelists.
She was born Ida Niedra in Vidzeme. After completing secondary school, she worked as secretary to a justice of the peace in Riga until 1932. She moved to Germany as a war refugee in 1944; in 1949, she emigrated to the United States. She died in Santa Monica, California at the age of 72.

Writer Niedra Aīda (real name Ida Niedra, married to Salmiņa) was born on March 23, 1899, in Āži pub, Tirza parish, in a pub family.

From 1908 studied at Tirza Parish School and Parish School, 1913. -1915.g. Uttendorf private gymnasium in Madona, 1919. graduated from Neija Secondary School in Cēsis. 1919 - 1932 worked in the Riga Magistrates' Court. After that, he worked only in writing.

1944 emigrated to Germany, settled in Esslingen. 1949 moved to the United States - lived in Salem, Corvallis, Eugene, San Francisco, Hollywood, suburban Los Angeles.

Poetry began during the school years. The first published poem "Tad ..." in the newspaper "Latvijas Kareivis" in 1920. In Latvian poetry, he was the first to write confidently and artificially about erotic love. In the collections of poems "Eros Eleges" (1924) and "Singer" (1935), a vital, poetic view related to Latvian nature captures a woman's experiences from the outbursts of sensual passion to the calm, balanced reflection of her mother's love. She has written stories and short stories, which are collected in the collections "Holy Wine" (1928), "Hawks' Nest" (1937), "People of Azanda" (1943).

However, Niedra's main field of activity is the novel. The first expressionist novels "Red Vase" (1927) and "Man with Golden Eyes" (1928) are beginner's works. The novels "Apple of Sin" and "The Fifth Commandment" (both in 1931) depict rural people fascinated by low passions in the genre of criminal novels. The sophistication of style and form is characteristic of the novels "By the Azanda River" (1933), "Salna" (1934), "Ciema spīgana" (1935), "Anna Dzilna" (1936), "Eternal Tale", "Windinde" (both in 1937), "Wife" (1938), "Rust Kristine" (1939), "In the Fire" (1940), "Tempter" (1942), "Maija Purene" (1944).

On the brightly marked natural background of the native region (Tirza, Azanda), the sharp, relief contours of the reed depict the life of Latvian farmers and the intertwining of intimate relations in different eras of history. Niedra continued the theme of Latvian peasants' lives in exile: the novels "Fire over Mount Hill" (1959) depicts the fate of peasants in Soviet Latvia in the post-war years, conceptually expanded in the panoramic novel "Indrānes oši šalc" (1965) Highlighting the prosperity of the Latvian economy after the coup of K. Ulmanis in 1934. During her exile, Niedra has repeatedly solved the complications of the personal lives of her heroes, including temperamental, erotic women, against the background of the colorful life of Riga in the 1920s and 1930s. Such are the novels "Ash of Roses" (1946), "City by the Daugava" (1955), "Hat of Miera Street" (1957), "That Crazy Year of Cavalry ..." (1962. g.). "Encounter at the Opera Cafe" (1967)

Direct observations in Germany and the United States have given impetus and substance to novels about the life of Latvian exiles abroad. In the 2nd part of the novel "Maija Purene" in 1953. (In 1954, the two parts are combined in the book "Three Cainite Women") depicts the departure of the main characters to Germany at the end of World War II. Passionate woman's conflicts with herself have been resolved in the novels "Black Poppy" (1956), "Pearl Major's Friend" (1958), "Golden Gate City" (1959), "Woman with Red Thorns" ( 1961). "Hollywood Clown", "Bride and Wife" (both 1963), "Three Seekers of Happiness" (1966), "Europe Again" (1968), "Adam and Eve" (1971) .) u. c. In exile, she has also published a collection of stories and short stories "Palm of the World" (1952; 1966 entitled "Forest Maiden"), together with her son Andrievs Salmiņš (1932-1978) he has written a collection "Black Plums" at the red lips "(1964).

He died on November 23, 1972 in Santa Monica, California, USA, and was buried there.

Mūsainā Hadžere Fahri Erdinčs

Born
in Akhisar, Turkey
January 01, 1917

Died
November 11, 1986


He was born in 1917 (January 1) in Akhisar. His father was teacher Halil Yaşar, from the Çandıroğulları family of Ankara origin. One year after her mother gave birth to Erdinç, she died of tuberculosis. Later, the awareness of this loss and motherlessness, growing up in a crowded family with stepmother, the tobacco suffering that took most of his childhood sleep, and a year later, his tin apprentice matured elementary school student Erdinç prematurely and led him to know life more closely.

He entered the Balıkesir Teacher Training School in 1930. He started teaching in the village of Ürküt in the Sandıklı district of Afyon in the 1936-37 academic year. Three years of work here were spent outside of professional pursuits, at odds with a reactionary teacher who swept the village.

Erdinç left his father's profession in the 1938-39 academic year and became a student at the Theater Department of the Ankara State Conservatory, where he passed the exam. In this department, he met Sabahattin Ali, a faculty member. In his first stories, which he started to write in the same year, he took advantage of his advice.

Erdinç had to quit his education due to his objections to the strict management and some privileges in the Conservatory, and some of the difficulties in his living. He returned to his profession. However, after serving as a reserve officer, he left his profession completely in 1943. He worked in building sites (as a subcontractor clerk and punter) for a while.

Thus, Erdinç, who focused on the fate of the people at the base of the society in his first writing essays, got to know them closely in the village, barracks and city, business life and increased his observations and impressions.

In 1946, he passed from a building site in Ankara to the state radio, where he passed the exam. He worked in the representation branch for three years. In the meantime, after the poetry book Şen Olasın Halep Şehri (İstanbul-1945), "Seçilmiş Hikâyeler Dergisi" (1948, number 8) published a special issue with his stories in Ankara.

Attracting the attention of the conservative-reactionary circles of the time with his appearance around progressive artists in the capital and his stories published in some magazines, Erdinç was arrested in 1947 because of a conflict that made him insult the president and remained in prison (several months) during his trial that resulted in acquittal. In Ankara prison, he had the opportunity to get to know some of the people whose destiny he dealt with. He also established relations with some communists here for the first time.

Erdinç could not find a living after he was released from prison. Incompatible family life also increased his depression. While he was struggling with this distress, the killing of his beloved Sabahattin Ali at the Bulgarian border in 1948 drowned Erdinç in great pain. This painful event also inspired him. Shortly after, in September 1949, Erdinç and his two friends (Ziya Yamaç and Tuğrul Deliorman) secretly moved to Bulgaria.

Erdinç and his friends were granted asylum as political immigrants in Bulgaria (October 1949). Thus began his immigration period abroad, which would last until his death.

As long as Erdinç learned the language, he worked as a teller in the "Zhdanov, 9" universal store (1950-51). On the one hand, he attended the Marxist association and the one-year party night school. He worked as an editor for Turkish popular-political publications at BKP Publishing House (1953-58).

In 1957, the "Foreign Office" of the illegal Communist Party of Turkey was able to contact water. He left Bulgaria in March 1958 to participate in active work in the party. He became a member of the TKP on March 20, 1958.

The illegal party work abroad that started in this way lasted 13 years. Having had a heart attack in 1969, Erdinç returned to Bulgaria at the beginning of 1971 and settled down after he had to withdraw from active activities. He started to contribute to the party work from here.

Erdinç learned enough Bulgarian for his literary work, and practically German and Russian. He became a Bulgarian citizen in 1965 and a member of the Bulgarian Writers Union in 1973.

His works did not reach the reader in his own country until 1969 when he went abroad.

Vai tu makā nēsā zivju zvīņas, lai nekad netrūktu naudas? Vai tevi šopavasar neaizkūkoja dzeguze bez santīma kabatā? Ja arī tu šos ticējumus neņem visai nopietni, tie tev tomēr nav gluži sveši, vai ne?
Grāmatiņā “Par naudu” apkopoti dažādi – gan seni, gan mūsdienīgi – ticējumi par naudu, par to, kā naudu piesaistīt un pavairot. Par dažiem no tiem varam pasmaidīt, bet citus savukārt der ievērot, jo – gribi, tici, gribi, netici – tie darbojas. Kuri tie ir? Uzzināsi, pašķirstot grāmatiņu!
