Dieses Buch wurde im Jahre 1849 von William Makepeace Thackeray (1811 - 1863) – einem der bedeutendsten englischsprachigen Romanciers des 19. Jahrhunderts veröffentlicht. 'Das Snob-Buch' ist eine Sammlung von Prosaskizzen, die in anekdotischer Form die Besonderheiten und Laster des Snobismus in der britischen Gesellschaft schildern. Entstanden ist einer der unterhaltsamsten kulturgeschichtlichen Einblicke in die Viktorianische Epoche. Da der Snobismus und seine Eigenschaften uns immer noch vertraut sind, hat das Buch von seiner Aktualität nichts verloren.

The New Book of Snobs

'Hugely enjoyable' AN Wilson, Sunday Times 'Thoughtful, entertaining and enjoyable' Michael Gove, Book of the Week, The Times Inspired by William Makepeace Thackeray, the first great analyst of snobbery, and his trail-blazing The Book of Snobs (1848), D. J. Taylor brings us a field guide to the modern snob. Short of calling someone a racist or a paedophile, one of the worst charges you can lay at anybody's door in the early twenty-first century is to suggest that they happen to be a snob. But what constitutes snobbishness? Who are the snobs and where are they to be found? Are you a snob? Am I? What are the distinguishing marks? Snobbery is, in fact, one of the keys to contemporary British life, as vital to the backstreet family on benefits as the proprietor of the grandest stately home, and an essential element of their view of who of they are and what the world might be thought to owe them. The New Book of Snobs will take a marked interest in language, the vocabulary of snobbery - as exemplified in the 'U' and 'Non U' controversy of the 1950s - being a particular field in which the phenomenon consistently makes its presence felt, and alternate social analysis with sketches of groups and individuals on the Thackerayan principle. Prepare to meet the Political Snob, the City Snob, the Technology Snob, the Property Snob, the Rural Snob, the Literary Snob, the Working-class Snob, the Sporting Snob, the Popular Cultural Snob and the Food Snob.

Archie is seventeen years old and lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, he loves reading horror books but, unlike his friends, he has a special power: he is a psychic, he can foresee the future and he can sense things that the human consciousness ignores.One day he receives a letter, without the return address, that informs him about the mysterious death of a distant relative from England, Lord Archibald Anderson III. The Lord appointed Archie as his only successor, and bequeathed an ancient castle near London to him, on condition that the boy arrives at the manor house strictly before the 31st of October, without explaining the reason.Archie arrives at Anderson Castle in company of three classmates: the funny and affable Penny, the cocky womanizer Rigger, and the snob and very rich Daphne.The four friends are welcomed by a man named Frank, who introduced himself as Archie's uncle, the deceased Lord's brother. However, the uncle seems eager to throw them out before the Halloween's night begins.The four friends find out very soon that the castle is actually haunted by furious demonic ghosts that will try to kill them in every way, and that Lord Archibald's death is linked to the mystery of Anderson Castle.Anderson Castle is a fantasy horror for teenagers, intentionally ironic, and its theme is typical of the 'Haunted' series, the haunted house with ghosts, following the novel series 'Goosebumps' from R.L. Stine.The whole novel is a tribute to the book The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde, since it follows its irony, the soft horror and the funny situations.Hamlet by William Shakespeare is another book often cited: it's not a coincidence that the title of every chapter sums up the happenings in Anderson Castle with a phrase from this famous tragedy.The third important point is the exorcism of death. The four protagonists are threatened by supernatural beings that will bring each of t
