Five Points (an intersection in lower Manhattan formed when Anthony Street was extended to meet Orange and Cross-today's Baxter and North Streets), was the most infamous neighborhood in nineteenth-century America. Visitors from Charles Dickens to Abraham Lincoln flocked to Five Points to witness the filthy streets, bordellos, gambling dens, and tenements that housed the lowest of the low. A close look at Five Points reveals a hidden world. As one of the most ethnically varied areas in the nation's most diverse city, The Five Points story is a classic American example of immigrant energy and ambition. From "Bowery Boy" culture to the invention of tap dance, to the most famous prize-fight of the century, to the timeless photographs of Jacob Riis, Five Points illuminates the colorful history of a fascinating community

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristophanes by Aristophanes( Book )

in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristophanes wrote most of his comedic masterpieces during the Peloponnesian wars, parodying the tumultuous politics and society of that time with trademark innuendoes and bawdy stagings and dialogue. [v. 1:] In these plays, Aristophanes brings every rhetorical stratagem into play to treat the reader to stories of one man's attempt to create a "war-free zone', the rescue of the imprisoned Peace on the back of a giant dung beetle, a satire of Euripides' sympathies for women, and the hustling and healing of a blind and destitute Wealth in order to redistribute the world's riches. [v. 3:] These plays contain, in turn, the sharpest political satire to be found in Aristophanes, a famous caricature of Socrates and the sophists, and the escapist fantasy of a city in the clouds."--Book jackets
