Item Description: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Publishers, 1987. Hard cover. Book Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket. Moser, Barry (Illustrated by). (illustrator). Reinforced binding. Sewn binding. 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

Item Description: Creation Books, London, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Thus. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. In the Georgia swamplands and plantations, a cast of anthropomorphic animals enact daily rituals of pursuit, trickery and escape. In this pre-Looney 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 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, in it's original African-American dialect, is a collection of some of the finest of these often surreal and grotesque stories and is presented as a classic of American literature for both adult readers and children of all ages. With an original cover illustration by Deryk Thomas. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 041355

Item Description: University of Texas Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The Walt Disney Company offers a vast universe of movies, television shows, theme parks, and merchandise, all carefully crafted to present an image of wholesome family entertainment. Yet Disney also produced one of the most infamous Hollywood films, Song of the South. Using cartoon characters and live actors to retell the stories of Joel Chandler Harris, SotS portrays a kindly black Uncle Remus who tells tales of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and the Tar Baby to adoring white children. Audiences and critics alike found its depiction of African Americans condescending and outdated when the film opened in 1946, but it grew in popularity-and controversy-with subsequent releases. Although Disney has withheld the film from American audiences since the late 1980s, SotS has an enthusiastic fan following, and pieces of the film-such as the Oscar-winning Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah -remain throughout Disney s media universe. Disney s Most Notorious Film examines the racial and convergence histories of Song of the South to offer new insights into how audiences and Disney have negotiated the film s controversies over the last seven decades. Jason Sperb skillfully traces the film s reception history, showing how audience perceptions of SotS have reflected debates over race in the larger society. He also explores why and how Disney, while embargoing the film as a whole, has repurposed and repackaged elements of SotS so extensively that they linger throughout American culture, serving as everything from cultural metaphors to consumer products.

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.

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.

Item Description: University of Texas Press, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 234 x 155 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The Walt Disney Company offers a vast universe of movies, television shows, theme parks, and merchandise, all carefully crafted to present an image of wholesome family entertainment. Yet Disney also produced one of the most infamous Hollywood films, Song of the South. Using cartoon characters and live actors to retell the stories of Joel Chandler Harris, SotS portrays a kindly black Uncle Remus who tells tales of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and the Tar Baby to adoring white children. Audiences and critics alike found its depiction of African Americans condescending and outdated when the film opened in 1946, but it grew in popularity--and controversy--with subsequent releases. Although Disney has withheld the film from American audiences since the late 1980s, SotS has an enthusiastic fan following, and pieces of the film--such as the Oscar-winning Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah --remain throughout Disney s media universe. Disney s Most Notorious Film examines the racial and convergence histories of Song of the South to offer new insights into how audiences and Disney have negotiated the film s controversies over the last seven decades. Jason Sperb skilfully traces the film s reception history, showing how audience perceptions of SotS have reflected debates over race in the larger society. He also explores why and how Disney, while embargoing the film as a whole, has repurposed and repackaged elements of SotS so extensively that they linger throughout American culture, serving as everything from cultural metaphors to consumer products.
