Download Schuld und Sühne: Roman by Fjodor Michailowitsch Dostojewski PDF

By Fjodor Michailowitsch Dostojewski

Der klassiker der Weltliteratur Herausgegeben in VERS Technologie. Die Abk?rzung VERS steht f?r Visualy stronger interpreting procedure. Das designierte Ziel der Entwicklung von VERS ist die Intensivierung des Lesevergn?gens aufseiten des Publikums sowie die Steigerung bzw. Erleichterung der Konzentration auf den textual content w?hrend der Lekt?re. Das Ergebnis ist ein neues layout f?r Literatur, das nachweislich das Leseerlebnis vertieft, die Empfindungen waehrend der Lekt?re steigert, und den Lesefluss erleichtert. Der Hintergrundmusik eines Filmes entsprechend, beinhalten VERS-B?cher farbige Doppelseiten, sogenannte Ankerseiten, die an ma?geblichen Stellen des Werkes dem textual content zugef?gt wurden. Die Wirkung dieses platforms beruht dabei einerseits auf der dem NLP entlehnten Technik des Ankerns von Emotionen und dem zu einem anderen Zeitpunkt folgenden Ausl?sen dieser Anker, andererseits auf der Suggestivwirkung der gew?hlten Bilder, sowie auf der psychologischen Wirkung der entsprechenden Farben. Die kurzfristige Unterbrechung des Leseflusses zugunsten der Bildbetrachtung erm?glicht es dem Leser weiters, sich immer wieder an den Ankerseiten f?r einen second zu entspannen, um anschliessend die Lekt?re des Textes mit erh?hter Konzentration fortzusetzen .Die farbigen Doppelseiten k?nnen auch als Lesezeichen dienen oder zur Zielsetzung beim Lesen eingesetzt werden. Da die Ankerseiten numeriert sind, kann der Eindruck entstehen, schneller mit dem Buch voranzukommen als ?blich, used to be wiederum die Motivation des Lesers positiv beeinflusst. Neben der Einf?gung von Ankerseiten tr?gt auch das layout des Buches wesentlich zur Wirkung von VERS bei. Das vorliegende Werk von Dostojewski ist das erste VERS Buch im deutschen Sprachraum. Es hat insgesamt 575 Seiten, davon 31 Farbdoppelseiten, zahlreiche weitere Werke sind in Arbeit.
