Katzengedichte: Old Possums Katzenbuch ist eine Sammlung von Katzengedichten für Kinder und Erwachsene. T.S. Eliott schreibt über den Charakter von Katzen im Allgemeinen sowie über die Art einer jeden einzelnen. Im Buch zu finden sind unter anderem Gedichte über Grimmtiger, Rem Tem Tecker, der nur das macht, was er will und über Rumpelmauser und Rattenschreck, die in der ganzen Stadt für Unordnung sorgen. Dazu wird in den Gedichten erklärt, wie man Katzen zu begrüssen hat oder wie sie heissen. Das Buch enthält nebst den zahlreichen Gedichten viele farbige Illustrationen, welche den Inhalt der Gedichte unterstreichen. Die Texte können Anregungen für Schreibanlässe in der Schule bieten. Nicht alle sind jedoch für Kinder gut verständlich, da die Sprache eher den Erwartungen Erwachsener entspricht. Alles in allem ist Old Possums Katzenbuch aber ein gelungenes Werk, welches auch als Vorlage für das erfolgreiche Musical "Cats" diente. Ab 10 Jahren, ***, Selina Streiff.

Modernist poetry, in its fragmented form, continues to intrigue readers. In this sequel to A Flowering Word (Peter Lang, 2000), Noriko Takeda clarifies the modernist schism’s meaningful role as a productive furnace for both interpretive humanness and its own solid concretization. The discussed main works are Stéphane Mallarmé’s Hérodiade, T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, and shorter poems in foregrounded lyricality by these two writers.

Canada's Early Nuclear Policy

Fate, Chance, and Character

Author: Brian Buckley

Publisher: McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP

ISBN: 0773568611

Category: History

Page: 184

In Canada's Early Nuclear Policy Brian Buckley weaves information from a number of disciplines to shed new light on Canada's early policies. Filling a longstanding gap in the national story, he explores the country's role in the early post-war period, cautioning against simplistic explanations and pointing to the continuing roles of contingency and personality in decision making. While the threat of nuclear war has receded in recent years, the number of states with nuclear weapons, the number of weapons, and their killing power are all far greater than they were five decades ago. Virtually all the issues that emerged fifty years ago remain on the international agenda and are as relevant today as ever.

Voice Lessons for Middle and High School

Author: Nancy Dean

Publisher: Maupin House Publishing, Inc.

ISBN: 0929895894

Category: Education

Page: 136

View: 5054

Lessons on diction, detail, figurative language, imagery, syntax, and tone help middle and early high school students understand the concept of voice in what they read and develop a strong, personal voice in their own writing. Each voice lesson takes only 10-20 minutes to complete and includes a quotation selected from a wide range of literature, two discussion questions, and an exercise that encourages students to practice what they have learned about the elements of voice. Discovering Voice also offers a collection of quotations students can use to create their own voice lessons. Discussion suggestions for each voice lesson and additional activities for teaching voice further promote critical analysis. Each of the seven packs on the elements of voice--diction, detail, figurative language 1 (metaphors, similes, and personification), figurative language 2 (hyperboles, symbols, and irony), imagery, syntax, and tone--include an introduction, lessons with discussion questions and an exercise, "write-your-own" voice lessons, a list of additional activities for teaching voice, and discussion suggestions.

In Crossover Fiction, Sandra L. Beckett explores the global trend of crossover literature and explains how it is transforming literary canons, concepts of readership, the status of authors, the publishing industry, and bookselling practices. This study will have significant relevance across disciplines, as scholars in literary studies, media and cultural studies, visual arts, education, psychology, and sociology examine the increasingly blurred borderlines between adults and young people in contemporary society, notably with regard to their consumption of popular culture.
