Summary Book Review We Danced All Night :

Download or read book We Danced All Night written by Martin Pugh and published by Random House. This book was released on 2013-12-31 with total page 528 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bounded by the Great War on one side and by the looming shadow of the Second World War on the other, the inter-war period has characteristically been portrayed as a time of great and unrelenting depression. In Martin Pugh's lively and thought-provoking book, however, the acclaimed historian vividly shows how the British people reacted to the privations of wartime by indulging in leisure and entertainment activities of all kinds - from dancing and cinema going to smoking, football pools and paid holidays. He explodes the myths of a nation of unwed women, revealing that in the 1930s the institution of marriage was reaching its heyday, and points to a rise in real incomes, improvements in diet and health and the spread of cheap luxuries. The result is an extraordinary, engaging work of history that presents us with a fresh perspective and brings out both the strangeness and the familiarity of this point in time.

Summary Book Review Dance Marathons :

Download or read book Dance Marathons written by Carol J. Martin and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 1994 with total page 182 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This penetrating analysis of one of the most extraordinary fads ever to strike America details how dance marathons manifested a potent from of drama. Between the two world wars they were a phenomenon in which working-class people engaged in emblematic struggles for survival. Battling to outlast other contestants, the dancers hoped to become notable. There was crippling exhaustion and anguish among the contenders, but ultimately it was the coupling of authentic pain with staged displays that made dance marathons a national craze. Within the well-controlled space of theatre they revealed actual life's unpredictability and inconsistencies, and, indeed, the frightful aspects of social Darwinism. In this grotesque theatrical setting we see also a horrifying metaphor - the ailing nation grappling with difficult times.

This book was released on 2019-08-26 with total page 960 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Erste autorisierte und einzige deutsche Ausgabe von Springsteens Lyrics Bruce Springsteens Lyrics erscheinen zusammengenommen als Kapitel eines großen amerikanischen Romans, den er in den 1970ern begonnen hat und der in diesem Buch nachvollzogen wird. Kritiker halten den "Chronisten des amerikanischen Alltags" (Der Spiegel) und seine Lyrics inzwischen für ebenso wichtig für die amerikanische Literatur wie die Werke von Fitzgerald, Carver oder Whitman. Anders als Bob Dylan versteckt sich Springsteen nicht hinter immer neuen Masken, er erzählt unverstellt von dem American Dream und seinen Schattenseiten – von der Provinz, von der Flucht aus ihr und dem Sog der Freiheit, von den Chancen der Selbstsuche wie auch von Armut, Rassismus oder Polizeigewalt. Leonardo Colombati entschlüsselt überraschende Hintergründe und Einflüsse. Die Wucht von Springsteens Bildern wie auch die leisen Erschütterungen in seiner Sprache macht Heinz Rudolf Kunze in seinen kongenialen Übersetzungen erfahrbar. Das Buch bietet: • Einleitung, Biographie und Kommentare von Leonardo Colombati • 100 Songs im Original und in deutscher Übersetzung von Heinz Rudolf Kunze • umfangreiches Bonusmaterial, Diskographie u. ä.

Summary Book Review Publishers, Readers and the Great War :

Download or read book Publishers, Readers and the Great War written by Vincent Trott and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2017-10-05 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Literature is at the heart of popular understandings of the First World War in Britain, and has perpetuated a popular memory of the conflict centred on disillusionment, horror and futility. This book examines how and why literature has had this impact, exploring the role played by authors, publishers and readers in constructing the memory of the war since 1918. It demonstrates that publishers were as influential as authors in shaping perceptions of the conflict, and it provides a detailed analysis of critical and popular responses to war books, tracing the evolution of readers' attitudes to the war between 1918 and 2014. By exploring the cultural legacy of the war from these two previously overlooked perspectives, Vincent Trott offers fresh insights regarding the emergence of a collective memory of the First World War in Britain. Drawing on a broad range of primary source material, including publishers' correspondence, dust jackets, adverts, book reviews and diary entries, and examining canonical authors such as Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Vera Brittain alongside long-forgotten texts and more recent autobiographical works by Harry Patch and Henry Allingham, Publishers, Readers and the Great War provides a rich and nuanced analysis of the climate within which First World War literature was written, published and received since 1918.

Book excerpt: In the sunny jacaranda-leafed garden of his Johannesburg home, six year old Martin Donally is king of a small and perfect world. It is 1948 and life is full of childish rhymes and his colourful extended family. There's exuberant Grandpa, who sings and races horses; chain-smoking Auntie Fee, who always sides with the ogres in fairy tales and who makes up her own stories about Martin's dead father; and above all, Georgie, the family's Zulu servant and Martin's confidant. But this cosy world of certainty ends as Martin's tale turns to political and personal tragedy. He can't possibly foresee the defeat of the liberal government that will usher in a new era of bigotry and intolerance, not appreciate the significance of the fact that Dr Verwoerd, architect of apartheid, is a neighbour. And what is he to make of dour, racist Gordon, his mother's husband-to-be, a man who seems determined to shatter the carefree world of the Donallys for good...
