America's favorite food : the story of Campbell Soup Company by Douglas Collins( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Campbell's origins go back to 1869, when Joseph Campbell and Abraham Anderson created a business in preserved foods. Jams, jellies, fruits, and vegetables in cans were the staples of the company until 1897, when Dr. John T. Dorrance, a nephew of one of the company's executives then working for $7.50 a week, invented condensed soup. Trained as a chemist, Dorrance had also studied cooking with gourmet chefs in Europe and his combined skills proved the key to success. Within twenty years he not only owned the company, but also demonstrated a marketing genius that nearly eclipsed his other talents; selling soup at ten cents a can he was taking in some fifteen million dollars a year by 1915. Douglas Collins narrates the history with gusto, weaving into the company's development interesting facts about the origins of soup itself and about how America's working women (who also remained homemakers) came to rely on convenience foods. Here, too, are insights into the skillful advertising and marketing decisions that have made Campbell Soup Company a model of successful business practice: the adoption of the red and white label (1898), the creation of the Campbell Kids (1904) - who remain fixtures of the company's visual presentation - and the diversification into other products: Pepperidge Farm baked goods, Prego spaghetti sauces, Vlasic pickles, Godiva chocolates and more. By 1962, the Campbell soup can was such an icon of American life that Pop artist Andy Warhol memorialized it in not one but several dozen works of art. And, Collins tells us, Warhol did so at least partly because he had grown up on Campbell's Tomato Soup, which remained a favorite of his. In addition to a special portfolio of Warhol artworks are historical images from the Campbell archives, photographs made for Fortune magazine in 1935 and 1955 by the great photojournalists Margaret Bourke-White and Dan Weiner, and a gallery of newspaper and magazine advertisements, posters, and related products - including two generations of Campbell kid dolls

The good distance : Proust and sociability by Florentina Dedu-Constantin( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Marcel Proust's A la recherche du temps perdu has been studied more than any other in French literature. Scholars have analyzed it from specific perspectives such as the relation between the artist and his art, class dynamics, sexual preference, and biographical issues, to mention just a few. Yet the novel purposefully intertwines these various threads. The novelty of this dissertation's approach consists in bringing together these themes to examine them in their interactivity, as the author has conceived them. The main questions addressed are why and how aestheticism, nationalism and xenophobia, sociability in the salons of the bourgeoisie and the nobility, and the budding artist, come together to become the material and the story for the genesis of a novel. First and foremost a man of his day and age, Proust is preoccupied by the issues of the time. By establishing a dialog between the novel and pertinent contemporary texts by Maurice Barrès, Julien Benda, Gabriel de Tarde, Auguste Rodin, and Georg Simmel, this dissertation illumines aspects of the text relevant to its analysis. In the process, the nationalistic and anti-Semitic climate dominating France during la Belle Epoque, the political configurations it engendered, as well as the particularity of Proust's subject position as a gay Jewish writer increasingly isolated by his illness, come to the foreground. Furthermore, a close examination of the contrast La recherche makes between the cosmopolitism and inclusion of noble salons and the insistence on the separation between insider and outsider dominating their bourgeois counterparts, highlights features of the Belle Epoque's sociability. It intimates that the dynamics at play in French society at the time were grounded in the fundamental distinction between Frenchness and foreignness. Notwithstanding aforementioned differences between the noble and bourgeois environments, in final analysis sociability fails in the novel. As a result, particular aspects of the Proustian aesthetics, such as his attention to details and rejection of masterpieces become relevant in an art that intends to move away from the group and its dangerous collective pursuits that lead to persecution and exclusion. As a conclusion, this dissertation proposes that Proustian aesthetics, conceived as interiorized individual contemplation whose goal and reward are in itself, foster non-confrontational social interactions grounded in a limited emotional involvement as a means to social harmony
