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.

The Modernist Human

The Configuration of Humanness in Stéphane Mallarmé's Hérodiade, T.S. Eliot's Cats, and Modernist Lyrical Poetry

Author: Noriko Takeda

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

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.

Discovering Voice

Voice Lessons for Middle and High School

Author: Nancy Dean

Publisher: Maupin House Publishing, Inc.

ISBN: 0929895894

Category: Education

Page: 136

View: 1037

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.

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.

Ihr Vorhaben, den Monarchen zu ermorden, schlägt fehl, aber die Gefahr ist damit längst nicht gebannt. Der Balkan ist ein Pulverfass ... Christine, ein aufgehender Stern am Schauspielhimmel Wiens, überlebt das Unglück mit knapper Not. Zusammen mit ihrem Geliebten Albrecht, einem deutschen Agenten und Cousin Kaiser Wilhelms II., ermittelt sie auf eigene Faust und kommt einem Komplott anarchistischer Geheimbünde auf die Schliche. Die Spur führt die beiden auf den Balkan, in die serbische Hauptstadt Belgrad. Bereits die Reise dorthin entpuppt sich als dramatischer Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, denn die Hintermänner des Attentats planen bereits den nächsten Streich. Können Albrecht und Christine verhindern, dass ganz Europa im Chaos versinkt? Furiose Reise in die Zeit der Jahrhundertwende Matthias Wittekindt und Rainer Wittkamp lassen in ihrem fulminanten Kriminalroman die prachtvolle und spannungsgeladene Welt des Fin de Siècle zwischen Berlin, Wien und Belgrad lebendig werden. Lassen Sie sich in eine Epoche zwischen Glanz und Elend, zwischen Monarchen und Anarchisten, Militärs und Geheimbünden entführen.
