The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn understanding a classic ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few works in American literature address issues as timeless as those explored in Mark Twain's controversial novel, Huckleberry Finn. In this program, three scholars, including noted Twain biographer Justin Kaplan, examine the work and its various themes-race, cruelty, consequences of greed, meaning of civilization, and the nature of freedom. The author's life is traced from his days as a printer's apprentice, riverboat pilot, and journalist, to renowned author. Twain scholars Shelley Fisher Fishkin and David Lionel Smith discuss African-American influences from Twain's childhood that are reflected in the work, and suggest that these references, misinterpreted by readers, form the basis for charges that Twain was a racist. Incidents from his life, including his vehement anti-slavery and anti-racist articles couched in irony, provide convincing counterpoint to the charges
The Margaret Fuller Legacy America's First Feminist, 1810-1850 ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Margaret Fuller's Memoirs she wrote, "I remember how, as a little child, I had stopped myself one day on the stairs, and asked, How came I here? How is it that I seem to be this Margaret Fuller? What does it mean? What shall I do about it?" During her brief life of 40 years, Fuller made every effort to answer those questions, supported and documented by her inquiring nature and writings, all to fulfill American women's growing intellectual and spiritual needs. In this program hosted by James H. Bride, distinguished educators Megan Marshall, Joan Von Mehren, Peter McFarland, and Joel Myerson contribute to the first comprehensive overview of Margaret Fuller's life, times, and achievements. The Margaret Fuller Legacy examines her Transcendental period as editor of the first literary magazine in America, The Dial, along with her professional and personal relationships with Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Additionally, the video brings to light her Conversations - the first successful woman's studies initiative in America - in Boston and at Brook Farm and her role as the first American female journalist and foreign reporter with the New-York Tribune. The program concludes at the Fuller monument at Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts
Joseph Conrad heart of darkness ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Joseph Conrad's compelling novella, marked by an ominous tone and a sense of unspeakable menace, is a literary introduction to the savage 20th century. In this program, noted Conrad scholars Bruce Harkness, Frederick Karl, Jerome Meckier, and Dwight Purdy examine the author's life within the context of his times: the pervasive influence of his Polish background, the impact of the sense of isolation he experienced as a merchant marine, and the nightmarish conditions in King Leopold's Belgian Congo. Historic photos and maps help set the tale in the context of time and place. In addition, experts analyze Marlow, Kurtz, the Accountant, the Manager, and Kurtz's fiancee; discuss the importance of literary techniques such as juxtapositioning; interpret the meaning of Kurtz's last words and Marlow's lie to the fiancee regarding them; and consider the story's bleak implication that it is only the knowledge of one's own perversity that separates humankind from the darkness. (30 minutes)
Introducing the Transcendentalists ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this new release, host James H. Bride brings the language and lives of the Transcendentalists to realization by recognizing the context, expression, and foundation of the movement. This program pioneers a new way for teachers and general readers to be on familiar terms with Ralph Waldo Emerson's essays, as well as the journals and writings of Henry David Thoreau. Professors Richard Baker, Joel Myerson, Bob Richardson, Wes Mott, and Larry Buell add significant biographical commentary and teaching suggestions to introduce this body of American philosophy and literature. Still important in the curriculum for studying the development of 19th-century American ideas, Introducing the Transcendentalists reflects today's 21st-century individual and philosophical challenges and associations. Additionally, historian and actor Richard Smith offers a reenactment of a day in Thoreau's life at Walden Pond. A separate documentary, In The Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau, mirrors the challenges and isolation in his 19th-century Walden Pond experiment
