In 1970, Stephen King launched into what may develop into the crowning success in his literary career-the darkish Tower. The seven-volume sequence, written and released over a interval of 30 years, was once encouraged by means of Robert Browning's poem "Childe Roland to the darkish Tower Came," in addition to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, and the spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone.
With the entire cooperation of Stephen King himself, The street to the Dark Tower examines the epic trip of the writer to accomplish a narrative that threatened to weigh down him. during this necessary better half, Bev Vincent offers a book-by-book research of every quantity within the sequence, tracing the darkish Tower's connections to King's different novels together with The Stand, Insomnia, and Hearts in Atlantis, and delivering insights from the writer in regards to the artistic strategy occupied with crafting his lifelong work-a paintings that has ate up not just Stephen King, yet his legion of committed readers. this is often crucial interpreting for any darkish Tower-or Stephen King-fan.

Gegenstand der folgenden Interpretation ist die Dialogszene »Das Ei« aus Loriots »Dramatischen Werken«. In der Szene wird satirisch zugespitzt die rhetorische Überlegenheit einer Ehefrau über ihren Mann am Beispiel eines Bagatellstreits vorgeführt. Die Szene ist insofern ein Meisterwerk der Eristik - der Kunst des Streitens - als in ihr eine Reihe elementarer Techniken, Taktiken und Strategien dieser Kunst exemplarisch und auf gedrängtestem Raum zur tragikkomischen Anwendung gelangen.
