Kurt Weill : composer in a divided world by Ronald Taylor( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this first full-length biography of Kurt Weill to incorporate his unpublished family letters and early compositions, as well as testimony from those who knew him, Ronald Taylor traces the turbulent path that led this intriguing composer from Berlin to Broadway." "Taylor considers the successive phases of Weill's life and work against the background of his Jewish roots and Germany's agitated, tragic interwar years. The son of a cantor and schoolteacher, Weill began his career as an avant-garde enfant terrible in Berlin in the 1920s. In 1928 his Threepenny Opera exploded upon the world, thrusting him into the limelight. Hitler's rise to power five years later forced Weill into exile, first in Paris, then in New York, where he began a new career and wrote such successful Broadway musicals as Lady in the Dark, Street Scene, and Lost in the Stars." "Taylor examines the emotional and intellectual forces that fueled Weill's unique contribution to twentieth-century music. With great skill and historical understanding, Taylor weaves the colorful thread of Weill's early career into the fascinating cultural and social tapestry that was Berlin in the 1920s, documenting the dramatic changes in his life. Included are accounts of his studies under Ferruccio Busoni; his relationships with men such as Otto Klemperer, Claudio Arrau, and his collaborator and polar opposite Bertolt Brecht, who provided the politico-dramatic framework for many of Weill's best-known compositions; and his life with actress and singer Lotte Lenya, whom he married, then divorced, then married again. This book gives new insights into the composer who created such a wall around himself that Lenya, at his death, commented, "I looked at him and asked myself, did I ever really know him?""--Jacket

5 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An absorbing account of the bizarre and fluctuating relationship between the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, the composer Richard Wagner and his wife Cosima ... The book sheds new light on Nietzsche's early writings, showing how they were subverted by Wagner to parade his own ideas ... The source of Nietzsche's Superman and Will to power are traced to the pre-fascist ideology of Richard and Cosima Wagner."--Jacket

Stressful life events, psychological well-being, and parenting in African American mothers by Ronald Taylor( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The association of stressful life events with mothers' psychological distress and parenting was examined in 79 African American mothers living in 1- and 2-parent households. Findings reveal that stress in the areas of family disruption and work problems was associated with lower maternal acceptance. Family disruption was also positively associated with mothers' firm control of behavior. Family disruption and work related stress were also negatively associated with mothers' self-esteem. Health related stress was positively related to mothers' psychological distress. Mothers' self-esteem was positively associated with mothers' acceptance and negatively related to firm control. Results also reveal that mothers' self-esteem mediates the association of family disruption and work related stress on mothers' acceptance. When the effects of mothers' self-esteem were controlled, significant relationships between family disruption, work related stress, and mothers' acceptance were no longer apparent. (Contains 1 table, 5 figures, and 27 references.) (Author/SLD)
