1 Hyperion - Dan Simmons
Auteur : Dan Simmons
Genre : Sci-Fi & Fantasy
A stunning tour de force filled with transcendent awe and wonder, Hyperion is a masterwork of science fiction that resonates with excitement and invention, the first volume in a remarkable science fiction epic by the multiple-award-winning author of The Hollow Man.

On the world called Hyperion, beyond the reach of galactic law, waits a creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all.

On the eve of Armageddon, with the entire galaxy at war, seven pilgrims set forth on a final voyage to Hyperion seeking the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives. Each carries a desperate hope—and a terrible secret. And one may hold the fate o

2 Hyperion - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Auteur : Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Genre : Poetry
The book Hyperion is a collection of Poetry. I must prepare for this sudden journey". On the following morning, Flemming and Berkley started on their way to Innsbruck, like Huon of Bordeaux and Scherasmin on their way to Babylon. Berkley's self-assumed duty was to console his companion; a duty which he performed like an ancient Spanish Despenadora, whose business was to attend the sick, and put her elbow into the stomach of the dying, to shorten their agony. In the Orlando Innamorato, Malagigi, the necromancer, puts all the company to sleep by reading to them from a book. Some books have this power of themselves and need no necromancer. Fearing, Gentle Reader, that mine may be of this kind, provided these introductory chapters from time to time, like stalls or Misereres in a church, with flowery canopies and poppy-heads over them, where thou mayest sit down and sleep. No, --the figure is

3 The Fall of Hyperion - Dan Simmons
Auteur : Dan Simmons
Genre : Adventure
“State of the art science fiction . . . a landmark novel.”—Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

Now, in the stunning continuation of the epic adventure begun in Hyperion, Simmons returns us to a far future resplendent with drama and invention.

Praise for The Fall of Hyperion

4 Hyperion - Friedrich Hölderlin & Ross Benjamin
Auteur : Friedrich Hölderlin & Ross Benjamin
Genre : Fiction & Literature
Hyperion is a novel of stirring lyricism, philosophical sublimity, and enduring influence. It stands among Hölderlin’s most extraordinary achievements. A Greek hermit recounts the pivotal phases of his life, from his discovery of the vanished glory of antiquity, through his encounter with his beloved Diotima, who embodies his goal of merging with "the All of nature," to his participation in a Greek uprising against Ottoman Turkish tyranny. Hölderlin’s sole novel has been celebrated for its musicality, the power of its cadences and tones to express a constant oscillation between extremes of grief and joy. Though Hölderlin’s genius was not widely recognized during his lifetime, he has come to be regarded as one of the most significant and unique poets in the German language.

5 Hyperion (Complete Edition) - John Keats
Auteur : John Keats
Genre : Poetry
This carefully crafted ebook: "Hyperion (Complete Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. "Hyperion" is an epic poem by 19th-century English Romantic poet John Keats. It is based on the Titanomachia, and tells of the despair of the Titans after their fall to the Olympians. Keats wrote the poem from late 1818 until the spring of 1819, when he gave it up as having "too many Miltonic inversions." The themes and ideas were picked up again in Keats's The Fall of Hyperion: A Dream, when he attempted to recast the epic by framing it with a personal quest to find truth and understanding. John Keats (1795 – 1821) was an English Romantic poet. The poetry of Keats is characterized by sensual imagery, most notably in the series of odes. Today his poems and letters are some of the most popular and most analyzed in English

20 The Greatest Game Ever Played - Mark Frost
Auteur : Mark Frost
Genre : Golf
In 1913, golf's first superstar went up against a green 20-year-old amateur. It was the birth of modern golf. Harry Vardon and Francis Ouimet came from different worlds and different generations, but their passion for golf set them on parallel paths that would collide in the most spectacular match the sport has ever known. Vardon had escaped a life of poverty in Britain to achieve universal recognition as the greatest champion in the game's history. Ouimet, a virtual unknown from Massachusetts, was only three years removed from his youthful career as a lowly caddie and worshipped Vardon. When these unlikely opponents finally came together in their legendary battle at the 1913 U.S. Open, the world's reaction to its remarkable drama and heart-stopping climax gave rise to the sport of golf as we know it today.

Weaving together the stories of Vardon and Ouimet to create his narra

21 Hyperion - Friedrich Hölderlin
Auteur : Friedrich Hölderlin
Genre : Classics
DAS BUCH Der Protagonist Hyperion schildert seinem Freund Bellarmin in einer Reihe von Briefen sein scheinbar gescheitertes Leben. Im Mittelpunkt seiner Betrachtungen stehen dabei die Utopie einer neuen Gesellschaft sowie seine Liebe zu Diotima, einer in ursprünglicher Einheit mit der Welt lebenden Frau, die er einst auf einer Insel kennenlernte. Hölderlins »Hyperion« wird oft als schönste Dichtung deutscher Sprache bezeichnet, das in seiner Bedeutung als unübertroffenes Meisterwerk und Inbegriff klassischer deutschsprachiger Literatur neben Goethes »Faust« genannt werden muss. Die Wirkmächtigkeit dieses Briefromans, der auch als (nicht intendierter) Gegenentwurf zu Goethes »Werther« gesehen werden kann, auf die Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts ist nicht zu unterschätzen. Es ist ein Roman über die Suche nach Liebe und Freiheit, im unerschütterlichen Glauben an die Möglichkei

On Earth, a small band of the few remaining humans pursues a lost past and devastating truth -- as four sentient machines depart from Jovian space to investigate, perhaps terminate, the potentially catastrophic emissions emanating from a mountaintop miles above the terraformed surface of the Red Planet.

Auteur : Friedrich Hölderlin
Genre : Poetry
Hyperion oder Der Eremit in Griechenland ist ein Roman von Friedrich Hölderlin.

Der Name Hyperion bedeutet „der oben Gehende“.

Hyperion erschien in zwei Bänden 1797 und 1799. Es ist ein lyrischer Briefroman, dessen äußere Handlung gegenüber den inneren Erfahrungen nur untergeordnete Bedeutung hat und dessen strömender Gefühlsreichtum in sprachliche Klangfülle gebannt ist.

Der Roman ist ein Selbstbekenntnis, das trotz mancher jugendlich-schwärmerischen Züge Hölderlins Lebensschau und Seelentum vergegenwärtigt. Die Natur, die in den Schlussbriefen hymnisch gefeiert wird, wird verehrt als der gotterfüllte Raum. In der Schilderung Griechenlands durchdringen sich Vergangenheit und Zukunft, Traum und Verheißung.

Hyperion wurde in die ZEIT-Bibliothek der 100 Bücher und auch in die ZEIT-Schülerbibliothek aufgenommen.
