Willa Cather : a critical biography by E. K Brown( Book )

42 editions published between 1953 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many years ago, on the occasion of Willa Cather's seventieth birthday, E. K. Brown, then Professor of English at the University of Chicago, wrote an appreciation of her work which appeared in the Yale Review. This so appealed to her that a friendly correspondence with Brown ensued, and after her death it was agreed that e would embark on a full-length critical biography. Brown died very unexpectedly at the early age of forty-five before he had quite completed what gave every promise of being a work of major stature, which would win for him reputation his friends and colleagues knew he richly deserved. Fortunately for all of us, Mr. Leon Edel, himself no mean writer of literary criticism, a man who had known Brown well when they were both students at the Sorbonne in their younger days, undertook to complete the work from the very copious notes left by Brown and with the active co-operation of Miss Edith Lewis, Miss Cahter's literary executrix and trustee. The result is a work that seems to me ideally to fulfill its purpose. Here is all the biographical information anyone is likely ever to gather about Willa Cather, and a critique of all her writings which is absolutely first-rate. It is the only authorized biography of the author of DEATH COME FOR THE ARCHBISHOP, and does the job so well that I think no one is likely to attempt it again for a very long time to come."--BOOK JACKET

A management and budget control system for educational research and evaluation units by E. K Brown( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the author attempts to aid those persons involved in finding ways to make school systems more efficient and productive through control systems. He begins by stating the problem and describing the services provided by Research and Evaluation (r & e) units. He discusses the various monitoring and reporting activities, work-flow networks, project-time formulations, costs estimates and budgets, personnel functions, and expenditures. The author points out that r & e units are being asked to take on more and more tasks and to provide descriptive and summative information for school management personnel at all levels. Since these units usually operate on somewhat fixed budgets, it has become necessary to employ the principles of cost analysis. The author attempts to demonstrate that the principles of management control and programing-planning-budgeting systems (ppbs) can be used to document the service costs of r & e units. He advocates moving from rather standardized procedures to a more complex operations network from which costs of personnel, materials, and management can be determined and monitored. Pertinent figures and tables assist the uninitiated reader to understand the technical aspects of the book. A related document is ed 041 391. (Editor)
Concise encyclopedia of syntactic theories by E. K Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Syntactic description and theoretical syntax are central concerns in linguistics. For thirty years, the search for a single formal model of syntax has been the central task in the field; many theories have been proposed, some discarded, none universally adopted, and the problem continues to challenge linguists. This collection gives a full and fascinating picture of the evolution of linguists' attempts to wrestle with syntax. The comprehensive inclusion of less popular theories alongside more current ones provides the researcher with the context and perspectives necessary to appreciate why some avenues have been pursued, while others have not. This is valuable for the development both of the more generally accepted approaches, and of others now being revived or introduced
