Tension has spread from the rural battlefields to New York City, where fourteen-year-old Katie Farrell helps support her Irish immigrant family by working as a maid for the Laceys of Washington Square. Even though they may be rich and well-educate d, she'll never think of them as her betters. Katie abhors the war; she watches in fury as her fellow Irish go to battle. 'This isn't our war', she tell herself. 'Let the rich free the slaves.' Katie isn't the only one who feels that wa y . W h e n word of the slaughter at Gettysburg reaches the Irish slum, it explodes in violence. Soon the streets of New York are as war-torn and bloody as any battlefield. And Katie is no longer sure what is right or wrong. All she knows is wh at s h e fe el s i n her heart.

HARLEQUIN ON THE MOON: COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE AND THE VISUAL ARTS., Lawner, Lynne.
6 Lawner, Lynne. HARLEQUIN ON THE MOON: COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE AND THE VISUAL ARTS.
Harry N. Abrams, New York, 1998. 
208 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0810911949 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Commedia dell'arte is the first modern theater - inspiration to Shakespeare, Moliere, Goldoni, Mozart, and Balanchine and forerunner of the modern stage comedy. Since its invention as a popular entertainment in Renaissance Italy, commedia, with its stock characters, its absurd and witty plots, and its utterly charming personalities, has captivated audiences high and low, from the street fairs where Punch and Judy reigned to the exquisitely refined court of the Sun King. This book traces the history of commedia from its beginnings through many transformations to its rediscovery in the experimental theater of today. The depictions of commedia in the visual arts has a rich history. From Tiepolo and Watteau to Beardsley, Picasso, Hockney, and other modern masters, painters have found great resonance and meaning in the clowns and lovers of commedia. Here the visual and dramatic arts meet, giving birth to styles of art and performance at once clever, hilarious, poignant, tragic, and eternal. Lynne Lawner traces all these threads, unearthing rare texts of commedia plays, discovering myriad version of the ever-fascinating Harlequin, Pierrot, Columbine, and Pulcinella, relating the gossip of courts and theaters, and revealing the ways in which these figures and their classic stories - the sly servant, the foolish soldier, the clever maid, the quack doctor - have arisen again and again in art." Light waviness to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. Very Good+/Very Good+
