9780141442495: Inspirations: Selections from Classic Literature (Penguin Classics)

'Anthology' comes from the Greek word that stands for garlands - a bouquet of flowers. An anthology then, should be a small token of something much larger. In the case of flowers, they bring to mind the colour & fragrance of the fields, of a season. Coelho's anthology, therefore, is not only a collection of texts or poems, but a gift, something arranged according to his sensitivities, to give to others. The selection of books presented in this volume have been chosen as if from a vast field of flowers, stretching infinitely into time's horizon. Coelho's selection is ordered in to the four elements, symbolizing both our world on all its directions, and the way we dwell in it, the way we say it. In 'Earth' we find writers as diverse as Oscar Wilde and D H Lawrence; in 'Air' Nelson Mandela and Gabriel Garcia Marques; in 'Fire' Rumi and Mary Shelley; in 'Water' Hans Christian Anderson and Machiavelli.

About the Author:

Paulo Coelho is one of the most widely read authors in the world. In 1986, at the age of 38, Paulo Coelho walked the Road to Santiago, and it was there that he reconverted to Christianity and found again the faith bequeathed to him by the Jesuit fathers of his school years. He would later describe this experience in his first book, The Pilgrimage, published in 1987. The following year, his second book, The Alchemist, established his worldwide reputation. Subsequent books included Brida (1990), The Valkyries (1992), Love Letters from a Prophet (1997), Veronika Decides to Die (1998) and The Devil and Miss Prym (2000). Among his recent novels are Eleven Minutes - bestselling fiction title worldwide in 2003 -, The Zahir (2005), The Witch of Portobello (2006) and The Winner Stands Alone (2008). He has received numerous prestigious international awards. The critics have praised his poetic, realistic and philosophical style. He has been a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters since 2002 and he was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace in 2007.
