Journal to Stella by Jonathan Swift( Book )

3 editions published between 1901 and 1974 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best remembered as the author of Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift was a Dublin native whose political pamphleteering led to a London-based position as editor of a conservative periodical. This letter-diary, written between 1710-1713 and addressed to Swift's longtime lover, sparkles with the satirist's renowned wit and offers an intimate account of the personalities, politics, and drama of Queen Anne's court."--

Journal to Stella : Letters to Esther Johnson and Rebecca Dingley 1710-1713 by Jonathan Swift( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jonathan Swift is the first fully annotated scholarly edition ever undertaken of Swift's complete works in both verse and prose. The great editions of Swift by Herbert Davis and Harold Williams have remained standard for over half a century. We are all greatly indebted to them, but the time has come to replace or revise their texts and commentary in the light of subsequent historical, biographical and textual knowledge. Davis's sixteen-volume edition of the Prose Writings offered valuable introductions but no annotation. The commentary to his separate edition of The Drapier's Letters, and Williams's commentaries to the Poems and Journal to Stella, though excellent in their time, must now be supplemented by a considerable body of more recent scholarship. The Cambridge Edition's detailed introductions, notes and appendices aim to provide an informed understanding of Swift's place in the political and cultural history of England and Ireland, and to establish the historical, literary and bibliographical contexts of his immense achievement as a prose satirist, poet and political writer. The editors of individual volumes include distinguished historians, as well as leading scholars of eighteenth-century literature. For the Cambridge Edition, Swift's texts will be collate"--
Report on bilingual pilot schools in New York City : a study of a court-ordered program for pupils with English language difficulty by Esther Johnson( Book )

4 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A class action begun on September 20, 1972 was settled on August 29, 1974 by a Consent Decree signed by United States District Judge Marvin E. Frankel. The group of children affected by the mandates in the Consent Decree are "all New York City public school children whose English language deficiency prevents them from effectively participating in the learning process and who can more effectively participate in Spanish." The decree mandates that "an improved method for accurately and systematically identifying and classifying children who are Spanish-speaking or Spanish-surnamed will be designed and implemented by the Board of Education." In February 1975, a total of 40 elementary, junior high, and high schools were identified and designated as Pilot Schools. These schools were to provide a complete bilingual program for all students within each school who had been identified as needing the program. They were also required by the decree to serve as training centers for appropriate school personnel in other schools. The agreement calls for the Board of Education to fully implement the program for all children in the described category by September 1975. (Author/JM)

The journal to Stella, A.D. 1710-1713 by Jonathan Swift( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Another controversial and famous work from Swift, A Journal to Stella was published in 1766 in two parts, 20 years after the author's death. Consisting of 65 letters to his friend, Esther "Stella" Johnson, the work provides an intimate look into Swift's personal life and that of his dear friend. Born in 1681 and dying 17 years before Swift, Stella was the daughter of Lillian Johnson, a famous prostitute in the early 1700s. Admiring her for her cleverness, Swift published a small book of her witticisms called Bon Mots de Stella, which he appended to several volumes of Gulliver's Travels
