REVIEW:
JANE AUSTEN'S MANUSCRIPT WORKS

bonnie

"Although her family would for decades after her death promote her character as that of “good aunt Jane,” a docile, genteel person, [Jane Austen's] manuscript works reveal not only a record of how she created her novels, but also a surprisingly open and scathing analysis of the plight of women whose only chance for security revolves around their ability to attract a wealthy husband."

PRIMER: TOSCA

kane

"As a teenager, I had trouble getting into Puccini. He seemed so harmonically slithery and although he was using leading motives à la Wagner, there seemed to be too much welter of themes. I actually disliked Tosca til the 'penny dropped.' What did it for me was the realization that the big opening big black brass theme, with its descending chords and feeling of magnificent pervasive dominance, describes not only the villainous antagonist of the piece, Scarpia, but also his whole power, that of a corrupt police state, responsible for brutal repressions of dissidents, and political incarceration and murder. How topical, since we now discover such situations daily in our news, or worse."READ MORE


REVIEW: SEVEN LETTERS FROM PARIS

kane

"Sam has lost her job to the global recession, her marriage to neglect and trust issues, she needs a shakeup, a make-over, a hero! A girlfriend’s reminder of their glorious final day in Paris has her digging out the old unanswered love letter pile and the letters serve as the pulse of lost love to drag our heroine back to land of hope."READ MORE
