  3. Ox-cart Man

    Ox-cart Man

    SKU: 4216

    $7.99

    A lyrical journey through the seasons and passing years of one family evokes the feeling of historical America in this lovely story which conjures up the daily life of rural New England in the 19th century. The customs and tasks, which the book's central family is engaged in, provide great contrast to a modern society in which food and goods can be purchased through computers, and planes can traverse the globe in a matter of hours. In the autumn, the man and his family load up his ox cart with everything extra that they have made or grown during the year. Into the cart goes wool sheared from sheep in the springtime, and a shawl and pairs of mittens spun from the sheep's wool. The family loads up homemade candles, linen from homegrown flax, shingles the man split himself, birch brooms carved by his son, potatoes, apples, honey, honeycombs, turnips, cabbages from their garden, maple sugar they tapped themselves, and goose feathers from their geese. Then the man travels for ten days to the market where he sells everything, even the cart and the ox that brought him there. He buys a new sewing needle, iron kettle, carving knife, and some candy for his family and then walks all the way home. Back at the farm, the family takes the new tools (after enjoying some of the candy), begins to sew and cook and whittle, and the process of production starts all over again. Grades Pre-K-3.

  5. Pericles

    Pericles

    SKU: 6202

    $7.95

    Pericles was one of the most popular plays of its time, and it has regained much of that popularity today. In a wide-ranging introduction, Roger Warren draws on his experience of the play in rehearsal and performance to explore the reasons for this enduring popularity. Unfortunately Pericles survives only in a corrupt text, the Quarto of 1609, in which many passages are nonsensical and others appear to be missing altogether. Earlier editions have merely cleaned-up the Quarto, but this edition offers a conjectural reconstruction of what the original play might have been like. It draws upon George Wilkin's The Painful Adventures of Pericles (1608) to emend some of the errors and missing material. It does so in the belief that the play is a collaboration between Shakespeare and Wilkins. The entire Quarto text is reprinted in an appendix, together with the passages from Wilkin's narrative that have particularly contributed to the reconstruction, so that readers can see for themselves how the reconstruction has been made.
