This is an ORIGINAL, not a reprint or print-on-demand copy! 'No one who heard Marie Shedlock tell a story in English or in French will ever forget the music in her voice, the quality of her diction, her inimitable gesture, the sheer magic of her presentation of a complete drama in miniature.' Those are the words of Anne Carroll Moore in her Foreword to THE ART OF THE STORY-TELLER by Marie L. Shedlock. This 287-page hardbound revised edition was published in 1942 by D. Appleton-Century Co., New York. Yielding to the appeals of her friends in the U.S. and England, the author put together her observations and suggestions on story-telling. This book, according to the preface, is a revelation of the intimate relation between a child's instincts and the finished art of dramatic presentation. The first section of the book deals with the Art of Story-Telling - difficulties of the story, essentials of the story, artifices of story-telling, elements to avoid in selection of material, elements to seek in the choice of material, how to obtain and maintain the effect of the story. Part II includes The Stories - Sturla, The Historian; A Saga; The Legend of St. Christopher; Arthur in the Cave; Hafiz, the Stone-Cutter; To Your Good Health; The Proud Cock; Snegourka; The Water Nixie; The Blue Rose; The Two Frogs; The Wise Old Shepherd; The Folly of Panic; The True Spirit of a Festival Day; Filial Piety; and three stories from Hans Christian Anderson: The Swineherd, The Nightingale, The Princess and the Pea. The final section of the book features a lengthy listing of 'new' stories, compiled by Mary Gould Davis. They include Stories from the Eastern World, Stories from the Western World, Fanciful Tales, Stories of the Saints, Stories from Hans Andersen and Books Suggested for the Story-teller. Author, publisher and a short synopsis is given for each of the books listed. This book's a winner - whether you're wanting to bring back memories of your own favorites or looking for some good old-fashioned stories to share with your youngsters! It's in Good+ condition, although it is ex lib with the usual library markings. There is some wear on cover edges, corners and spine ends. The spine is sun faded. Inside pages are clean, complete, tightly bound and without apparent defects beyond some slight yellowing from age. It's a good one! (3684)
