Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : The revival of interest in Arthurian legend in the 19th century was a remarkable phenomenon, apparently at odds with the spirit of the age. Tennyson was widely criticised for his choice of a medieval topic; yet The Idylls of the Kingwere accepted as the national epic, and a flood of lesser works was inspired by them, on both sides of the Atlantic. Elisabeth Brewer and Beverly Taylor survey the course of Arthurian literature from 1800 to the presentday, and give an account of all the major English and American contributions. Some of the works are well-known, but there are also a host of names which will be new to most readers, and some surprises, such as J. Comyns Carr's King Arthur, rightly ignored as a text, but a piece oftheatrical history, for Sir Henry Irving played King Arthur, Ellen Terry was Guinevere, Arthur Sullivan wrote the music, and Burne-Jones designed the sets. The Arthurian works of the Pre-Raphaelites are discussed at length, as are the poemsof Edward Arlington Robinson, John Masefield and Charles Williams. Other writers have used the legends as part of a wider cultural consciousness: The Waste Land, David Jones's In Parenthesis and The Anathemata, and the echoes ofTristan and Iseult in Finnigan's Wake are discussed in this context. Novels on Arthurian themes are given their due place, from the satirical scenes of Thomas Love Peacock's The Misfortunes of Elphin and Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur's Court to T.H. White's serio-comic The Once and Future King and the many recent novelists who have turned away from the chivalric Arthur to depict him as a Dark Age ruler. The Return of King Arthurincludes a bibliography of British and American creative writing relating to the Arthurian legends from1800 to the present day.

Download PDF or read online The Kennedy Persuasion Book by Paul R. Henggeler and published by Ivan R Dee. This book was released on 1995 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : In this original and convincing piece of history, Paul Henggeler explores the haunting of American politics since the assassination of John Kennedy. Focusing on the behavior of presidents and presidential candidates, he shows how the Kennedy mystique has altered the style - and demeaned the substance - of presidential politics. "The Texas School Book Depository, once a warehouse for books, today houses our imagination," Mr. Henggeler writes. Americans' shared nostalgia for the Kennedy years, with their imagined hope and promise, is confirmed in polls that reveal a yearning for the optimism and confidence associated with JFK's brief presidency. Keenly aware of these feelings among the electorate, American political leaders have energetically laid claim to the Kennedy mantle. From Lyndon Johnson's pledge to "Let us continue" to Bill Clinton's widely publicized handshake with JFK, the Kennedy legend has prompted presidents and candidates to adjust their public image and their message to accommodate persistent longings for the return of Camelot. In The Kennedy Persuasion, Mr. Henggeler uses fresh archival sources to describe how Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, have invoked the Kennedy mythology, adopted the Kennedy strategy, even tried to summon up the Kennedy appearance in order to influence Congress, the media, and the American public. The author also draws on extensive interviews with key political players of the era as well as numerous aides, associates, and reporters. By the 1970s and 1980s, as Mr. Henggeler points out, it was seldom Kennedy's ideology or programs that politicians drew upon; like the public, they were mindful of Kennedy's style. As JFK became a source less of inspiration than of impersonation, presidents and candidates became distracted, producing behavior and decisions that were often debilitating. Thus the Kennedy legend "has contributed to the derivativeness of presidential leadership," the author argues. "It has frustrated incumbents who have competed against romanticized memories of a glorified past." The Kennedy Persuasion is a disquieting and often surprising appraisal of the great political icon of our time.
