Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 203 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Joel Chandler Harris (December 9, 1848 - July 3, 1908) was an American journalist, fiction writer, and folklorist best known for his collection of Uncle Remus stories. Harris was born in Eatonton, Georgia, where he served as an apprentice on a plantation during his teenage years. He spent the majority of his adult life in Atlanta working as an associate editor at the Atlanta Constitution. Harris led two professional lives: as the editor and journalist known as Joe Harris, he supported a vision of the New South with the editor Henry W. Grady (1880-1889), stressing regional and racial reconciliation after the Reconstruction era. As Joel Chandler Harris, fiction writer and folklorist, he wrote many Brer Rabbit stories from the African-American oral tradition and helped to revolutionize literature in the process.Joel Chandler Harris was born in Eatonton, Georgia in 1848 to Mary Ann Harris, an Irish immigrant. His father, whose identity remains unknown, abandoned Mary Ann and the infant shortly after his birth. The parents had never married; the boy was named Joel after his mother s attending physician, Dr. Joel Branham. Chandler was the name of his mother s uncle.Harris remained self-conscious of his illegitimate birth throughout his life.A prominent physician, Dr. Andrew Reid, gave the Harris family a small cottage to use behind his mansion. Mary Harris worked as a seamstress and helped neighbors with their gardening to support herself and her son. She was an avid reader and instilled in her son a love of language: My desire to write-to give expression to my thoughts-grew out of hearing my mother read The Vicar of Wakefield. Dr. Reid also paid for Harris school tuition for several years. In 1856, Joe Harris briefly attended Kate Davidson s School for Boys and Girls, but transferred to Eatonton School for Boys later that year. He had an undistinguished academic record and a habit of truancy. Harris excelled in reading and writing, but was mostly known for his pranks, mischief, and sense of humor. Practical jokes helped Harris cloak his shyness and insecurities about his red hair, Irish ancestry, and illegitimacy, leading to both trouble and a reputation as a leader among the older boys. Oliver Herford (1863-1935) was an American writer, artist and illustrator who has been called The American Oscar Wilde. [citation needed] As a frequent contributor to The Mentor, Life, and Ladies Home Journal, he sometimes signed his artwork as O Herford. In 1906 he wrote and illustrated the Little Book of Bores. He also wrote short poems like The Chimpanzee and The Hen, as well as writing and illustrating The Rubaiyat of a Persian Kitten (1904) and Excuse It Please (1930). His sister Beatrice Herford was also a humorist. Ethel Mumford and Addison Mizner wrote a small book The Cynic s Calendar of Revised Wisdom for 1903 as a Christmas present and added Herford s name as an author as a joke. The printer made up more copies to sell and to everyone s surprise it was an astounding success. When Herford found out about it he wanted 90 of the royalties. He was awarded an equal third.
