Illustrierte Ausgabe (mit sämtliche über 89 Illustrationen von Maurice de Becque und andere Illustratoren). Das Dschungelbuch (englischer Originaltitel The Jungle Book) ist eine Sammlung von Erzählungen und Gedichten des britischen Autors Rudyard Kipling. Der erste Band erschien 1894, der zweite 1895 unter dem Titel The Second Jungle Book („Das zweite Dschungelbuch“); seither werden die Erzählungen der beiden Bände zumeist gemeinsam publiziert, oft als The Jungle Books („Die Dschungelbücher“). Die bekanntesten Erzählungen darin handeln von Mowgli (in verschiedenen Übersetzungen auch Maugli oder Mogli geschrieben), einem Findelkind, das bei Tieren im indischen Dschungel aufwächst. Die Geschichten über Mowgli stehen dem Genre des Entwicklungsromans nahe, da sie Mowglis Erwachsenwerden und Bewusstwerdung vom verspielten Kind bis hin zum Herrn über die Tierwelt aufzeigen. Mowgli muss lernen, dass die Gesetze der Natur hart sind und ein hohes Maß von Verantwortung fordern. Im Kampf mit den Kräften der Natur, mit den Tieren und mit den Menschen reift das Kind zum selbstbewussten Jugendlichen. Trotz mancherlei kritischer Betrachtungen – man hat in der Darstellung der Charaktere und der Betonung des Gesetzes des Dschungels Kiplings positive Stellung zum Kolonialismus erblickt – ist die Bedeutung des Dschungelbuches für die spätere literarische Entwicklung sowie seine Stellung als eines der bekanntesten und erfolgreichsten Jugendbücher der Welt kaum zu überschätzen. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (* 30. Dezember 1865 in Bombay; † 18. Januar 1936 in London) war ein britischer Schriftsteller und Dichter. Seine bekanntesten Werke sind Das Dschungelbuch und der Roman Kim. Außerdem schrieb er Gedichte und eine Vielzahl von Kurzgeschichten. Kipling gilt als wesentlicher Vertreter der Kurzgeschichte und als hervorragender Erzähler. Seine Kinderbücher gehören zu den Klassikern des Genres. 1907 erhielt er, noch keine 42 Jahre alt, als erster englischsprachiger Schriftsteller den Literaturnobelpreis; den Rekord als jüngster Literaturnobelpreisträger hält er bis heute. Verschiedene andere Ehrungen wie die Erhebung zum Poet Laureate und in den Adelsstand lehnte er ab. Übersetzt von Curt Abel-Musgrave und andere Übersetzer.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Carl von Ossietzky Universitat Oldenburg, Veranstaltung: Introduction to American Studies, 11 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Die Arbeit enthalt: eine kurze Inhaltsangabe des zweiten Kapitels, welche einen exemplarischen Blick auf das Gesamtwerk zulasst, eine Analyse der sprachlichstilistischen Gestaltung, eine Kontextualisierung, welche einen Blick auf die Lebens- und Arbeitsbedingungen der amerikanischen Arbeiterklasse wagt., Abstract: Am 20. September 1878 wurde Upton Sinclair als Sohn einer unvermogenden Sudstaatenfamilie in Baltimore/Maryland geboren. Von finanziellen Schwierigkeiten getrieben, zog es ihn und seine Familie jedoch schon wenige Jahre spater - sein Vater war alkoholkrank - nach New York. Aufgrund der finanziellen Probleme seiner Familie wohnte der junge Sinclair mehrfach vorubergehend bei seinen vermogenden Grosseltern, die ebenfalls in New York lebten. Hierdurch wurde er schon in jungem Alter mit dem Kontrast zwischen Armut und Reichtum konfrontiert. Dieser Wechsel zwischen arm und reich sensibilisierte ihn fur eine sozialkritische Auseinandersetzung mit den Problemen der amerikanischen Arbeiterschaft und liess ihn schon fruh zum Befurworter des Sozialismus werden. Beeinflusst durch diese vollig gegensatzlichen Milieus, die Sinclair wahrend seiner Kindheit erlebt hatte, begann er die sozialen und politischen Missstande der industrialisierten, amerikanischen Gesellschaft des beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts aufzugreifen und literarisch zu verarbeiten."

Considered a masterpiece of travel literature for nearly a century, The Sea and the Jungle is a wise and witty book of firsts: ostensibly a lighthearted story of a Londoner's first ocean voyage, it is also a carefully crafted journalistic account of the first successful ascent of the Amazon River and its tributary, the Madeira, by an English steamer. First published in 1912, The Sea and the Jungle remains one of the most popular accounts of a traveler's experience in Amazonia. As Peter Matthiessen observed fifty years later, " The Sea and the Jungle is one of the few level-headed works in the literature of this region. . . . accurate and difficult to improve upon."

These are pieces to stimulate the musical imagination with such titles as "Snake Sneaking" and "Jungle River Flowing." They are also studies for dynamic balance between the hands, soft tone production, "finger-pedal" (sustaining tones with fingers instead of with pedal), and more. Jon George's illustrations add to the attractiveness.

While working undercover, Steven Kendall has had many roles to play. His job entailed gathering evidence to prosecute animal and environmental activists involved in domestic terrorism, educating the public, and dealing with the media. Kendall refers to the role of the circus as ''Edutainment.'' The role he played for Ringling Bros. Circus (Feld Entertainment) was to offset the propaganda aimed at the circus industry by animal activists. He worked as a consultant to Feld Entertainment and wrote thousands of reports dealing with animal activists and environmental groups. Many of the reports Kendall wrote were used by the CIA. He organized counter demonstrations nationwide under the umbrella group ''Putting People First.'' Feld Entertainment was able to utilize this group to offset the animal activist protestors. Steven Kendall did numerous TV shows and news segments around the world. Everywhere the circus went so did Steven Kendall. The book deals with the life of a undercover private investigator who organized an operation with the financial backing of Feld Entertainment. Activist groups were shocked to learn they had been infiltrated by the circus industry. PeTA currently has a federal case in Virginia against Feld Entertainment. Any group opposed to PeTA and other animal activist groups poses a threat to them. In the book, Kendall stated there were times of frustration because of the lack of cooperation among government agencies, which included the USDA, FBI and CIA.

Upton Sinclair, The Lithuanian Jungle

Upon the Centenary of The Jungle (1905 and 1906) by Upton Sinclair

In his legendary novel The Jungle (1905 and 1906), Upton Sinclair included a conspicuous number of Lithuanian words, phrases and surnames. This volume is the first attempt to analyze aspects of Lithuanian linguistic and historical data from The Jungle. Sinclair discovered the Lithuanian language in Chicago and explored it with pleasure. He even confessed to having sang in Lithuanian. If you look for “a Lithuanian linguist” working in field-research conditions in Chicago's Back of the Yards—there is Upton Sinclair! The book targets Sinclair's motives for choosing Lithuanian characters, his sources and his work methods in “field-research” conditions in Chicago. Some real-life individuals—Lithuanian name-donors for the protagonists of The Jungle—are presented in this volume. Certain details of the turn-of-the-century Chicago depicted in The Jungle are also revealed—for example, the saloon where the actual Lithuanian wedding feast took place and its owner. This volume is of interest to American literary historians, sociolinguists, language historians, and those interested in the history of Lithuanian immigration to America and the immigrant experience in Chicago.
