Product Description
Sylvia Ashton-Warner, novelist and educationist, was extraordinarily famous in the 1960s. She maintained that young children best learn to read and write when they produce their own vocabulary, especially sex words – like ‘kiss’, and fear words – like ‘ghost’. Educators lauded her.

Her autobiographical novels about teaching in remote schools, and being culturally abandoned in a remote country, New Zealand, attained enormous international popularity in both literary and educational circles.

This is the first book to make Sylvia Ashton-Warner’s passionately difficult relationship with New Zealand its central focus. Its contributors argue that, rather than stultifying her, the country she decried produced Sylvia and her work. In addition, infant schooling in New Zealand in the post-war years was relatively radical and progressive, and education officials seemed to welcome Sylvia’s ideas about literacy.

The edited collection includes chapters by Mäori teachers and others who worked with Sylvia, as well as recollections of her son, Elliot Henderson. It reprints her Teaching Scheme that was originally published in New Zealand in the 1950s. And it celebrates her novels as brilliant and angry evocations of life in the wildness of New Zealand.

How much does Robert Cushman love this week's new plays? Let him count the ... - National Post

Well into the 20th century, the Victorians Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning were cited in the textbooks as the only major English poets to have been married to one another. Their ownership of the marital Parnassus wasn’t to be challenged until the union of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. But while the Hughes-Plath marriage was notoriously stormy, and eventually tragic, the Brownings’ relationship was popularly regarded as an idyllic meeting of minds and talents: celebrated in such things as the play and movie The Barretts of... Now here, to shatter the idyll, comes Florence Gibson MacDonald with her play How Do I Love Thee. Her Robert and Elizabeth could give Ted and Sylvia a good, or bad, run for their money. Browning’s most famous poem. Elizabeth gets to count the ways quite late in the play, and the recitation, passionately done, is all the more moving for coming at a point where what might seem to be uppermost in both their minds is “How Do I Hate Thee. Robert’s attention is drawn to something nice that Elizabeth has written about his work, and soon he’s at her door and all over her sofa. MacDonald’s poets speak, for the most part, in her own rich prose, which is both worthy of them and gratifying for us. Once they’ve set up house in Florence, it all falls apart: the relationship and, I’m afraid, the play. Whereas he seems to love the pair mainly for their poems, Wilson, Elizabeth’s maid, loves the poems — Elizabeth’s anyway — because it’s her mistress, whom she calls “mum”, who’s written them. The first, very telling, moments of the play find Elizabeth rhapsodising on a swing. Wilson believes the drugs necessary to Elizabeth’s writing. so, even more damagingly, does Elizabeth herself. and, most distressingly, so apparently does the play. Its second act becomes the chronicle of Elizabeth’s addiction, and Robert’s increasingly angry and desperate attempts to wean of her off it (and to stop the apothecary’s bills from bankrupting them). Two of the most monotonous things in the world are drug addiction and marital quarrels. both just keep repeating themselves, and so does the play. One taunt that Elizabeth keeps throwing at Robert is that she’s the one who’s writing all the successful. Source: news.nationalpost.com
