The Twain Legacy - The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Twain Legacy offers students and teachers an insight into the life and writings of Mark Twain, a significant 19th century American literary icon. 'The Twain Legacy' is divided into five chapters intended for class and individual learning and discussion. Knowledgeable scholars explore themes, ideas and narrative style in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. By examining and exploring why his historical and moral concerns were important, the presenters weave Twain's themes of slavery, prejudice and class into a coherent awareness. Chapter 1- Twain Overview: Mark Twain is the pen name for Samuel Langhorne Clemons, born in Hannibal, Missouri in 1835 and died in 1910 in Reddington, Connecticut. Twain experienced a mixture of careers including journalism, riverboat piloting, essayist, short story writer and novelist, especially in 1885, with the publication of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Ironically, his pen name, Mark Twain, means smooth sailing, which is in contrast to the stormy subjects explored in his stories. Chapter 2 - Twain's Hannibal, Missouri: Twain's personal and professional experiences from childhood and adult recollections are all intertwined in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. His narrative offers an abundance of serious and humorous incidences that reveal life experiences on the American frontier. Twain's upbringing in Hannibal, Missouri, where slavery was still a fact of life, had a great influence on his fictional character developments as well as illuminating accounts of racial relations in America. Chapter 3 - Twains' Use of Dialect: Twain listened and wrote with great respect for all Americans, especially African-American speakers. From early childhood and into adulthood, Twain heard their dialogue and wrote with accuracy and empathy. Well known writers, Shelly Fisher Fishkin, Justin Kaplan and David Lionel Smith shed new light on Jim and Huck's dialect and its importance in 19th century American literature. Though many critics penned acerbic comments about Jim's dialect, few could criticize Twain's attempts to bring this correct voice for African Americans and Midwestern Americans into fiction. Chapter 4 - Twain's Awareness of Slavery: In the 1870s slavery and Reconstruction were controversial in America. Mark Twain weaves the themes of slavery, prejudice and class effectively and controversially in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. With numerous suggestions about the challenges in protecting Jim as a slave, various events reveal prejudice and class distinctions among the wealthy and corrupt to imposters and charlatans. Chapter 5 - Twain's Use of Irony: As a literary stratagem, irony, can be so subtle that readers might misunderstand the author's real intention for its use. Twain's irony stimulates discussion in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn about Jim and Huck escaping oppression: Jim to freedom and Huck to the west. In it first publication Twain's use of irony proved baffling to many critics and readers. This chapter advances discussion regarding Twain's genius in writing a book that still resonates with vibrancy, controversy and authority

King Philip's War - The History & Legacy of America's Forgotten Conflict( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An educational documentary examining the causes & effects of the America's first great Indian War. ABOUT THE PROGRAM: King Philip's War, took place between June 1675 and August 1676 between the colonists of the Massachusetts Bay Colonies of New England and the Native American, Wampanoag Tribe in what is considered the bloodiest war per capita in this country's history. King Philip was the name given to Metacom, the great chief of the Wampanoag Tribe. He was the son of Massasoit, the chief who made contact with the Puritans when they settled at the Massachusetts Bay colony of Plymouth. By 1675, friction between the Wampanoag Tribe of Southeastern New England and the English colonists had reached the boiling point. The increasing appetite for land by the growing population of colonists was usurping Native American territory. On June 20, Metacom, ordered an attack on the settlement at Swansea, Massachusetts, precipitating a war that destroyed his tribe and nearly bankrupted the Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay colonies. On August 12, 1676, Colonial soldiers under Benjamin Church surprised King Philip and his band at Mount Hope, where Philip was killed by the Pocasset, Alderman, with a bullet through the heart. On the orders of Church, King Philip's body was drawn and quartered and his head sent to Plymouth where it remained on display for 25 years. When the war ended with the death of Philip, 3000 Native Americans and 800 English had been killed, a staggering mortality given the population of that time. The Wampanoag tribe was devastated, with most of its members either killed or sold into slavery, including the wife and son of Philip. The Massachusetts Bay Colonies were nearly bankrupt. Native Americans and historians of the period believe this war was one of the most significant seminal events in American history. STUDENTS WILL LEARN: Who was King Philip? From which country had the New England colonists arrived? What was the primary cause of the war? How did the Native American concept of land differ from that of the colonists? How did the Native American style of fighting differ from that of the Colonists in the early stages of the war? When and where was Philip killed? What were the three main reasons why the Wampanoags lost the war? What were two significant consequences of the war? ABOUT THE NARRATORS: Eric Schultz and Michael Tougias are best-selling authors of, King Philip's War: The History & Legacy of America's Forgotten Conflict. Both authors provide narration and historical commentary throughout the program. Also featured are present day Wampanoag historians including Russell Peters, former head of the Wampanoag Council, Ella Sekatau, Narragansett historian, Linda Coombs and Nancy Eldridge, Wampanoag historians, and Richard Pickering, historian formerly of the Plimoth Plantation. Filmed live at Plimoth Plantation and other locations around New England. Includes informative maps illustrating battle sites and historical markers
