內容簡介

One of two beautifully designed hardback gift editions of Stefan Zweig's breathlessly dramatic historical sketches, out in time for the holidays.

Millions of people in a nation are necessary for a single genius to arise, millions of tedious hours must pass before a truly historic shooting star of humanity appears in the sky.

Five vivid dramatizations of some of the most pivotal episodes in human history, from the Discovery of the Pacific to the composition of the Marseillaise, bringing the past to life in brilliant technicolor.

Included in this collection:
"Flight into Immortality": Vasco Núñez de Balboa's quest to be the first European to see the Pacific Ocean.
"The Resurrection of George Frederic Handel": Handel falls into depression until a poet sends him an inspirational work.
"The Genius of a Night": Captain Rouget writes La Marseillaise, the song which is to become the French national anthem.
"The Discovery of El Dorado": John Sutter founds New Helvetia in western America and attempts to keep it.
"The First Word to Cross the Ocean": Cyrus W. Field resolves to lay the first trans-Atlantic telegraph cable.
