Item Description: Creation Books, 2000. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In the Georgia swamplands and plantations, a cast of anthropomorphic animals enacts daily rituals of pursuit, trickery and escape. In this pre-Loony Toons world of sassy, talking beasts, Brer Rabbit is the hero -- duelling both verbally and physically with those who would eat him, and perpetually in the monstrous shadow of the Tar Baby.The casual publication in 1877 of "The Tar Baby" by Joel Chandler Harris, found Harris his literary vocation. In the following years he developed his own plantation mythology in a series of volumes, narrated by "Uncle Remus", telling colloquial tales of the wily hero Brer Rabbit (an obvious precursor of Bugs Bunny) and his clashes with the villain, Brer Fox. Tar Baby is a collection of some of the finest of these often surreal and grotesque stories, in the original African American dialect, and is presented as a classic of American literature for both adult readers and children of all ages.

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Brer Rabbit is the main character of the Uncle Remus stories, a likable character prone to tricks and trouble-making who is often opposed by Br er Fox and Br er Bear. In one tale, Br er Fox constructs a lump of tar and puts clothing on it. When Br er Rabbit comes along he addresses the tar baby amiably, but receives no response. Br er Rabbit becomes offended by what he perceives as Tar Baby s lack of manners, punches it, and becomes stuck. Br er Rabbit is a trickster who succeeds by his wits rather than by brawn, provoking authority figures and bending social mores as he sees fit. The stories have inspired at least three feature films. The first and best known is Walt Disney s Song of the South, released in 1946. The film was a combination of live action and animation. Ralph Bakshi s 1975 film Coonskin is a satire of the Disney film that adapts the Uncle Remus stories to a contemporary Harlem setting. The Adventures of Brer Rabbit is a 2006 direct-to video production which has hip-hop influences. An Uncle Remus and His Tales of Br er Rabbit newspaper strip ran from October 14, 1945, through December 31, 1972. All ten Uncle Remus Brer Rabbit adventures are collected here: BRER RABBIT S FROLIC BROTHER BEAR S BIG HOUSE BRER RABBIT TREATS THE CREETURS TO A RACE BRER RABBIT S FLYING TRIP BRER RABBIT AND THE GOLD MINE BRER RABBIT GETS BRER FOX A HOSS BRER RABBIT FINDS THE MOON IN THE MILL POND HOW MR. LION LOST HIS WOOL HOW BRER RABBIT GOT A HOUSE BRER RABBIT AND THE PARTRIDGE NEST. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781499588699

Paper over boards. 39 p. Audience: Children/juvenile. Newspaperman Harris published many of these stories originally in Georgia, reporting he had gathered them from storytellers, Southern blacks in the late 1800s. The central character was Uncle Remus, an elderly black plantation slave. He recorded them using the language and stereotypes of his era, perhaps perpetuating those same. This adaptation brings forward the folklore, the humor, the family tales, the defenseless who outsmart the bigger animals, with resourcefulness and courage. Moser's drawings are wonderful. Includes: Fisherman, Tar-Baby, Weasel, Mosquitoes, Courtship. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.0006829

Inscription a little faint with light offsetting from Field's bookplate (opposite on front pastedown); some wear to covers, but a good copy. The 26 November 1893, New York Times reviewer wrote of this book: "Here are fifteen delightful fairy tales that are worth the attention of grown-up folks and will surely delight chidren. . . . 'A French Tar Baby' and the story of 'Mr. Snail and Brother Wolf' are much like the tales Uncle Remus told to his little friend, but most of the others, in their artless simplicity, imaginative wealth, and seemingly-unconscious humor, are more like those unforgettable tales of Hans Christian Andersen. . . . [In his Introduction] Mr. Harris explains that he was attracted to 'Les Contes de la Veillee' by Frederic Ortoli by an advertisement containing a picture which reminded him of his own famous creations, the 'Tar Baby' and 'Brer Rabbit.' Thereafter the book of the Frenchman came to Mr. Harris, and was highly popular in his family; whereupon he thought of translating it. He confesses to a certain freedom of treatment in some of the stories. There is certainly a great deal of Uncle Remus in 'Evening Tales.'". Bookseller Inventory # 22741

Summary: Joel Chandler Harris, celebrated fiction writer and Georgia newspaperman, gained international fame, chiefly due to his animal folktales told through the voice of Uncle Remus. Harris moved to the Turnwold Plantation in 1862, where he was first introduced to the plantation lore that later would inspire his fiction. His most significant experience on the Turnwold Plantation is indisputably the time he spent in the slave quarters listening to African American folktales. These stories provided much of the material for the Uncle Remus tales, and Harris would later model many of his African American characters, including Uncle Remus, Aunt Tempy, Tildy, and Daddy Jack, on the storytellers of his youth. Uncle Remus, His Songs and His Saying includes thirty-four folktales narrated by Uncle Remus, an elderly man living in a cabin on a plantation. Arguably the best-known Uncle Remus tale is "The Wonderful Tar-Baby Story," in which Brer Fox successfully entraps Brer Rabbit by setting a tar-baby out on the big road right across Brer Rabbit's path. Harris also records several plantation songs, which are mostly of a religious nature, in dialect. He then returns to Uncle Remus in the final section of the book titled "His Sayings," which includes brief sketches of Uncle Remus that Harris likely wrote for the Atlanta Constitution before embarking on the animal tales.

Uncle Remus is a fictional character, the title character and fictional narrator of a collection of African American folktales adapted and compiled by Joel Chandler Harris, published in book form from 1881. A journalist in post-reconstruction Atlanta, Georgia, Harris produced seven Uncle Remus books. Uncle Remus is a collection of animal stories, songs, and oral folklore, collected from Southern United States blacks. Many of the stories are didactic, much like those of Aesop's fables and the stories of Jean de La Fontaine. Uncle Remus is a kindly old slave who serves as a storytelling device, passing on the folktales to white children gathered around him. The stories are told in Harris' version of a Deep South slave dialect. The genre of stories is the trickster tale. The term "uncle" was a patronizing, familiar and often racist title reserved by whites for elderly black men in the South, which is considered pejorative and offensive. At the time of Harris' publication, his work was praised for its ability to capture plantation negro dialect. Brer Rabbit ("Brother Rabbit") is the main character of the stories, a likable trickster prone to getting into trouble who is often opposed by Brer Fox and Brer Bear. In one tale, Brer Fox and Brer Bear construct a lump of tar and put clothing on it. When Brer Rabbit comes along he addresses the "tar baby" amiably, but receives no response. Brer Rabbit becomes offended by what he perceives as Tar Baby's lack of manners, kicks it, and becomes stuck. Now that Brer Rabbit is stuck, Fox ponders how to dispose of him. The helpless, but cunning, Brer Rabbit pleads, "Please don't throw me in the briar patch," prompting Fox to do exactly that. As rabbits are at home in thickets, the resourceful Brer Rabbit escapes. Using the phrases "please don't throw me in the briar patch" and "tar baby" to refer to the idea of 'a problem that gets worse the more one struggles against it' became part of the wider Culture of the United States in the mid-20th century. The animal stories are not racist and had considerable popular appeal, but by the Civil Rights era of the 1960s the dialect and the "old Uncle" stereotype of the narrator, long considered demeaning by many blacks, as well as Harris' racist and patronizing attitudes toward blacks and his defense of slavery in his foreword, made the book indefensible. Without much controversy the book and movie became less popular. Harris himself said, in the introduction to Uncle Remus, that he hoped his book would be considered: . a sympathetic supplement to Mrs. Stowe's [author of Uncle Tom's Cabin] wonderful defense of slavery as it existed in the South. Mrs. Stowe, let me hasten to say, attacked the possibilities of slavery with all the eloquence of genius; but the same genius painted the portrait of the Southern slave-owner, and defended him. In Harris' day, among most southern whites, this would have been a moderate or even enlightened position to take. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 008825

Item Description: University of Georgia Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 184 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.5in. x 0.3in.This biography and critical study reconstructs Harriss life and career from his humble origins as an illegitimate child and plantation-newspaper printers devil through his years in Macon, Forsyth, Savannah, and Atlanta. When Harris died in 1908, his national and international popularity rivaled his friend Mark Twains. A psychologically complex person, Harris became an accomplished Southern local colorist who left multiple legacies as an American humorist, folklorist, New South journalist, childrens writer, and author. He helped make the Old South New. Harriss Uncle Remus trickster tales derive primarily from transplanted Senegambian African folklore and are rhetorically and sociologically complex representations of the often predatory world of Old South slave life--where survival depends on trickery, wit, and will pitted against the brute strength of overseers and masters. Controversial today because he was a white man retelling black folk narratives, Harris nevertheless helped preserve the trickster tale-cycle and promote black folk-tale collecting, generally; hundreds of scholars and linguists have studied his works. Harris also made Brer Rabbit, the tar baby, and the briar patch popular-culture icons, and his highly believable animal characters and dialogues influenced the techniques of Rudyard Kipling, A. A. Milne, Beatrix Potter, E. B. White, and other childrens authors. Finally, Harriss poor white and African American characters and narratives have left their mark on writers from his time to our times--from Twain to Zora Neale Hurston, William Faulkner, Flannery OConnor, Ralph Ellison, and Toni Morrison.
