The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp (The life of William Henry Davies) William Henry Davies or W. H. Davies (3 July 1871 - 26 September 1940) was a Welsh poet and writer. Davies spent a significant part of his life as a tramp or hobo, in the United Kingdom and United States, but became one of the most popular poets of his time. The principal themes in his work are observations about life's hardships, the ways in which the human condition is reflected in nature, his own tramping adventures and the various characters he met. Davies is usually considered one of the Georgian Poets, but much of his work is not typical in style or theme of the group.
The English version of the book does not di?er essentially from the Rus- 1 sian version . Along with a few notes and new references I included Part II to Article 3 and added some new materials to the 'Nobel' autobiography. Furthermore, Article 7 (M. Cardona and W. Marx "Vitaly L. Ginzburg - a bibliometricstudy"),whichwaspublishedinJournalofSuperconductivityand NovelMagnetism, v.19, No.3-5, July 2006 is included as an appendix. My special thanks are due to Prof. Manuel Cardona and Prof. Werner Marx who kindly allowed publishing their paper as an appendix to this book (with some new minor author's amendments). Also, I am grateful to M.S. Aksent'eva, E.A. Frimer, G.M. Krasnikova and S.G.RudnevfortheirassistanceinthepreparationoftheEnglishmanuscript.

The life of Hollywood's number one movie actor, the elusive Robert De Niro, who shuns the limelight and rarely gives interviews, written by the leading film critic and biographer of Spielberg, Kubrick, Woody Allen and George Lucas. Robert De Niro is the pre-eminent Hollywood character performer of our time: film portraits like the young Don Vito Corleone in THE GODFATHER II, Jake La Motta in RAGING BULL and Travis Bickle in TAXI DRIVER are some of the most vivid ever put on celluloid. De Niro cannot be cast to type, prefers to work for old friends like Martin Scorsese, and (apart from FRANKENSTEIN) has never played anything but 20th-century roles.John Baxter calls him ‘the archetypal empty bottle which only becomes visible when it's filled by a role': which makes him such a tempting subject for one of Hollywood's finest historian/biographers.As well as his film roles, Baxter examines De Niro's often controversial private life, his collaborations with directors like Martin Scorsese and performers like Harvey Keitel and Meryl Streep, and his increasingly ambitious off-screen activities.
