Arthur Schnitzler: Four Major Plays
Arthur Schnitzler
1575251809
February 1999
Textbook Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This collection, written at the turn of the century by Austrian Jewish playwright Schnitzler, consists of three light Viennese plays set in 1890A"La Ronde," "Annatol," and "Flirtation"Aand the dark, sinister one-act play "The Green Cockatoo," set in 1789 at a Paris cabaret-theater on the eve of the fall of the Bastille. The theme of all four is "the Pirandellian confusion between reality and illusion." In the Viennese plays, this is dramatized by an aimless search for the meaning of love and life through a series of sexual encounters, a search that can result in disillusionment and even death. Showing the sentimental and melancholic erotic escapades of egocentric libertines, Schnitzler offers psychological and sociological criticism of the decadent Viennese society in which he lived. For theater students and...


Confederate Generals of the Civil War

From School Library Journal
Gr 7-10-Each book profiles 10 leaders ranging from the very famous (Ulysses S. Grant and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson) to the almost unknown (Henry Wager Halleck and William Joseph Hardee). The biographical sketches all share the same format, containing an overview of the general's early life and prewar career, information about his war service, and an analysis of his legacy. Each nine-page entry features a full-page black-and-white portrait and some also include average-quality photographs of war scenes. Green and Sanford are objective about their subjects, describing each man's personal and professional strengths and weaknesses. Although these sketches provide a limited amount of information, they allow readers to see how these leaders performed over time. Many titles about the Civil War mention these men...

From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8-Knapp has done a fine job of profiling 10 prominent U.S. generals. The top brass included are: Henry Arnold, Omar Bradley, Dwight Eisenhower, Curtis LeMay, Douglas MacArthur, George Marshall, George Patton, Matthew Ridgway, Holland Smith, and Joseph Stilwell. This informative title offers readers the opportunity to expand their knowledge of well-known figures and introduces those who are less famous. Arranged in alphabetical order, the chapters give short description of the generals' lives and their contributions during their Armed Services careers. All of them open with a black-and-white photo of the subject and include one other vintage photo within the text. Articles are thoroughly documented with chapter notes. The format is appealing with an uncrowded text and wide margins. This offering...


The Mission Trails in American History

From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8-Each of these easily accessible volumes provides background material on the early history of its respective area, focusing on archaeological information. The books also trace the development of these important routes, explore the people who traveled them, and comment on the clash of cultures as Euro-Americans encountered Native peoples. Each author carefully points out the contributions of the different groups who traveled these routes during different centuries and reminds readers of the significant contributions of the indigenous people who were often displaced by explorers and settlers. These routes connected cities, provided paths for commerce, and were vital links for people and their story is fascinating. El Camino Real, which is discussed in Mission Trails, eventually linked the...

Reviewed with Henry M. Holden's Living and Working Aboard the International Space Station.Gr. 4-6. In name, at least, the debuting series Space Adventures and Disasters speaks bluntly about the dangers that have lately muted space travel's thrills; even so, these two fascinating entries are likely to expand the ranks of aspiring astronauts. Not surprisingly, Apollo 11 is the more exciting of the two--a function, of course, of the inherent novelty and drama of the Eagle's now-aphoristic landing. Unusually thorough chapter notes support the content in both books where appropriate (moondust evidently smells "like gunpowder"), and a publisher-maintained Web portal is well stocked with links to relevant, prescreened sites. Both titles suffer from the cramped design template dictated by the...


Brigham Young: Pioneer and Morman Leader

From School Library Journal
Gr 4-7--These series entries use a predictable format and organization to present biographical information on two figures in American history. Opening chapters, which in both cases fail to arouse much interest, present a highlight or important event from the subject's life. Subsequent chapters present chronological biographies. Occasional oversimplifications or value judgments may lead to confusion for young readers. For example, in Pike, Sanford says "As the frontier advanced, the Shawnee, Delaware, and other Old Northwest Tribes took to the warpath," with no explanation of what that means or why these Native Americans may have been provoked to do so. Neither volume has sufficient maps. There is useful information in both of these titles, and excerpts from Pike's journal do increase reading interest. Susan...

Reviewed with Carl R. Green's The Giant Panda.Gr. 3-7. Like other MyReportLinks.com books, these titles in the Endangered and Threatened Animals subseries begin with an extensive list of Web sites accessible through the publishers' Web site, which requires a provided password. A page of animal facts precedes the chapters, which cover the animals' physical characteristics and natural habitats as well as scientific studies and efforts to stave off the threat of extinction. Both books are written in accessible, simple language. Not everyone will agree with a few awkward generalizations in Panda ("Unlike animals such as snail darters and crested toads, people care deeply about pandas"), but there are plenty of details kids will relish (gorilla states that Dian Fossey learned to "belch like a gorilla")....
