From Publishers Weekly
In this touching but predictable romance set in medieval England, two unmarried—and hence unprotected—young noblewomen, desperate to save their late father's estate from conniving cousin Roald de Sayres, seek help from the only available knight in the neighborhood: the handsome, carefree, impoverished ladies' man Sir Henry d'Alton. Though beautiful Lady Giselle initially attracts Henry's eye, it's her homely but bold younger sister, Lady Mathilde—whose reputation has suffered a ruinous blow at the hands of Roald—who begins to win his similarly tarnished heart. While cameo appearances by characters from previous books in Moore's Brothers in Arms series, such as Merrick from The Unwilling Bride, may thrill the author's established fans, a more thorough recap of characters' shared history...


The Life of Henry Moore

From Publishers Weekly
How do we reconcile Moore, the creator of universal icons, with Moore, the down-to-earth Yorkshire rustic who summed up his WW I experience as a soldier in these superficial words: "For me the war passed in a romantic haze of hoping to be a hero"? In tracing the sculptor's evolution from protected, mother-bound child to hewer of archetypal forms who learned from surrealism even as he was forging his own abstract style, Berthoud never fully explains the incongruity. Written with Moore's approval and cooperation before his death in 1985, this first full biography offers a balanced, engrossing appraisal of the sculptor's work, even though it sometimes verges on becoming a career recitation. Praising Moore's sculpture became a form of evangelism for the cause of modern art and for postwar Britain. Berthoud (Graham...

Since the text is a staple in many high school and college literature curricula, Dover provides a painless, inexpensive way of stocking multiple copies.Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From AudioFile
Henry James's novella probes the social and emotional complications that follow the overly familiar but innocent behavior of Daisy Miller, a newly rich American traveling in Switzerland and Rome. This recording also includes the preface that James wrote later in life for his New York edition. Initially, the choice of a female reader might seem misguided for a story that is filtered through the consciousness of...

Book Review's Best of 2001
Even when a famous artist's critical reputation has fallen on bad times, it's rare that the negative side of the legend finds its way into an elegantly designed and copiously illustrated monograph like Henry Moore: Sculpting the 20th Century. Yet those who deride the "civic trophy" aspect of Moore's ubiquitous bronze figures may reconsider their verdict in light of the perceptive arguments presented here by eight art historians. The scrutiny of Moore begins with the question of known and possible sources for the early blocky seated figures of the '20s, inspired by his fascination with African, Oceanic, and pre-Columbian sculptures. After investigating Moore's experiments with surrealism in the '30s, the text discusses the poignant drawings of people huddled in Underground stations during World War II that...

From School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The colorful and attractive covers, each featuring a representative work of art and portrait of the artist, beg to be opened. Inside, brightly colored accent pages and borders invite browsing. One-to-two page chapters with limited text, large type, and numerous color and black-and-white photos and reproductions provide a basic introduction to the artist and his work. With the series' targeted audience in mind, the authors reduce the rich and complex lives of the artists to select tidbits of information and broad simplifications. Thus, youngsters learn that Leonardo, besides being a great painter, "lost his teeth and much of his hair" as an old man and that Moore "liked to show people lying on their side." Giesecke informs readers that Remington loved the "cowboy life" and drew animals that "looked...

Book Description
Henry Moore's writings constitute a vivid and comprehensive record of his life and work, of the influences that shaped his vision, and of his reactions to the work of other artists, periods, and cultures. Spanning some seventy years, Moore's writings and conversations are much more than documentary records of his life and times: they have considerable literary merit in their own right.
This fascinating collection of Moore's written and spoken words is the most comprehensive yet compiled, and contains much previously unpublished material. It includes over 150 illustrations: photographs of the sculptures, drawings and prints discussed in the text, illustrations of works by other artists, and photographs of the sculptor and his environment at various stages of his life.

Celebrating Moore: Works from the Collection of the Henry Moore Foundation
Selected by David Mitchinson

From Library Journal
These two very different volumes celebrate the centennial of the English sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986). Hedgecoe, a longtime friend of the artist and a noted photographer, has produced a book of images with few words. First comes 50 pages of Moore's forms as seen in the landscape, forms that inspired him; then a generous selection of "major works" in excellent and evocative photographs; and lastly 780 thumbnail images of Moore's sculpture forms. Not a catalogue raisonne but an inventory of Moore's "amazing fund of ideas," this is clearly a very personal and satisfying book, but it is limited to visual appreciation. Celebrating Moore presents 278 items covering the full spectrum of Moore's career selected from among the 12,000 held by the Henry Moore Foundation. Catalog entries are preceded by a substantial and...
