„Ängstlich in das Dunkel starrend blieb ich stehn, verwundert, harrend ...“ „Der Rabe“ brachte Edgar Allan Poe den Durchbruch als Lyriker. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht zählt bis heute zum unvergänglichen Erbe der Dichtkunst. In 108 Versen schildert er den mitternächtlichen Besuch eines Raben bei einem Verzweifelten, dessen Geliebte Lenore starb. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Elise von Hohenhausen findet sich hier neu interpretiert und illustriert von Marta Monika Czerwinski. Der Name steht für schaurige und düstere Abgründe: Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Wegbereiter des Symbolismus und Meister des subtilen Horrors. Poes Gedichte, Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten zählen zu den großen Werken seiner Zeit.

Die Autobiografie vom Star des Oscar-prämierten Films »Free Solo« Alex Honnold hat die puristischste Form des Kletterns, ohne Seil und Sicherung, in neue Dimensionen geführt. Nun blickt der Kletterstar auf die Highlights seiner bisherigen Karriere zurück, wie die spektakuläre Free-Solo-Begehung von "Moonlight Buttress" in Utah oder die "Fitz Traverse" mit Tommy Caldwell in Patagonien. Er beschreibt, wie er sich auf die Besteigung des El Capitan vorbereitete, mit der er 2017 Klettergeschichte schrieb. "Free Solo", der Film, der dieser spektakulären Leistung ein Denkmal setzte, wurde 2019 mit einem Oscar prämiert. In diesem Buch verrät Alex Honnold, wie er den Spagat zwischen Abgrund und Privatleben schafft, warum Risiko oftmals auch Gewinn bedeuten kann und wie man in Extremsituationen fokussiert bleibt.
