A beautiful boxed set brings together the great sci-fi writer's two award-winning Parable books The perfect gift for fans of Octavia Butler, this boxed set pairs the bestselling Nebula-prize nominee, Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents, which together tell the near-future odyssey of Lauren Olamina, a "hyperempathic" black woman who is twice as feeling in a world that has become doubly dehumanized. In Sower, the place is California, where small walled communities protect from hordes of desperate scavengers and roaming bands of people addicts. Lauren sets off on foot along the dangerous coastal highways, moving north into the unknown. The book has an introduction by feminist, journalist, activist, and author Gloria Steinem. Parable of the Talents celebrates the classic Butlerian themes of alienation and transcendence, violence and spirituality, slavery and freedom, separation and community, to astonishing effect, in the shockingly familiar, broken world of 2032. It is told in the voice of Lauren Olamina's daughter--from whom she has been separated for most of the girl's life--with sections in the form of Lauren's journal. Against a background of a war-torn continent, and with a far-right religious crusader in the office of the U.S. presidency, this is a book

Doro ist ein Unsterblicher, der seit der Zeit der Pharaonen auf unserer Welt ist. Er beherrscht die Fähigkeit, menschliche Körper zu übernehmen, so meisterhaft, dass er nicht getötet werden kann. Seit tausend Jahren greift Doro immer wieder in die Geschicke eines kleinen afrikanischen Dorfes ein. Er entscheidet, wer mit wem Kinder zeugen darf, um so einen perfekten Menschen zu züchten. Doch eines Tages verwüsten Sklavenhändler sein Dorf und nehmen Doros »Kinder« mit in die Neue Welt. Als der Unsterbliche ihnen hinterherreist, macht er eine unglaubliche Entdeckung: Anyanwu, eine Gestaltwandlerin und Heilerin und ebenso unsterblich wie er. Sie könnte der Schlüssel zu Doros Plänen sein – doch Anyanwu hat ihre eigenen Pläne, und so beginnt ein Kampf zwischen zwei Halbgöttern, der die Zukunft der gesamten Menschheit für immer verändern wird.

During His time on earth, the Lord Jesus Christ taught many things by way of parables, outstanding among them is The Parable of the Sower. As a parable it stands on its own and seems to be a key to understanding all other parable, for Christ insisted, "You do not understand this parable? How them are you able to understand any parable?" (Mark 4:13). The author gives a thorough and thought provoking treatment of The Parable of the Sower, linking it very much to the kingdom of God which he emphasizes as 'then kingdom of God'. Thus neither the parable nor the kingdom can be understood apart from God's sovereignty intervening in the affairs of man ... for no amount of human effort will bring about His kingdom.

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Osnabrück, language: English, abstract: This paper will argue that in "Parable of the Sower" by Octavia Butler creates utopian hope by realistically building a dystopian vision which immanently criticises the present. For reasons of brevity, this will be elucidated mainly using the example of capitalism. While an abundance of other issues taken up by the novel, like climate change, democracy, racism or violence, would certainly serve as productive foci of analysis as well, capitalism will be the centre of attention because it is at the core of the apocalyptic circumstances portrayed in the novel. It also constitutes an intersection with most of the other issues named above, making capitalism a suitable starting point. Firstly, a short overview will be given on contemporary interpretations of the state of utopia, pointing out capitalism as a main factor in the changing of utopianism. Among others, Krishan Kumar’s “The Ends of Utopia”, Jerry Phillips’s “Utopia and Catastrophe in Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower” and Darko Suvin’s Metamorphoses of Science Fiction will be consulted. Realism, cognition, and estrangement will be pointed out as main
