About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Merry Mount by Stokes, Richard L..

Description:

Merry Mount,"A dramatic Poem for Music", was based on a 17th century incident at Plymouth Rock, a conflict between Puritans and Royalists involving a Maypole erected by the "gentlemen venturers". Besides the human settlers, an interesting cast includes characters such as a toad, a calf who says, "Baa!", witches on broomsticks, a minotaur who comments, "Moo! Moo! Moo!", Lucifer and Beelzebub and Antichrist, the Apocalyptic Beast, and a variety of monsters, some who "twitter", "Kee, kee, kee " , and carry on occasional conversations, the female monsters asking, "Pa-pa-pa-quish", the males responding, "Hog-min-ook-chong!". What fun designing costumes for these rowdy scenes.! Stokes provides detailed stage directions, as well as describing characters, props and stage settings. His inventive drama was a success and, with music by Howard Hanson, was scheduled for the following season at the Met. A clean copy, securely bound in dark brown cloth faded at the upper spine, that portion of the dj having torn away. The pale green jacket is chipped and faded, with substantial browning of the spine. 133 pages, 5.25"x 8.25" [M]. Bookseller Inventory # F00072
