Thornton Wilder: A Life brings readers face to face with the extraordinary man who made words come alive around .

Thornton Wilder: A Life brings readers face to face with the extraordinary man who made words come alive around the world, on the stage and on the page. James Earl Jones, actor. Thornton Wilder-three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, creator of such enduring stage works as Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth, and beloved novels like Bridge of San Luis Ray and Theophilus North-was much more than a pivotal figure in twentieth century American theater and literature. He was a world-traveler, a student, a teacher, a soldier, an actor, a son, a brother, and a complex, intensely private man who kept his personal life a secret.

Thornton was placed in the China Inland Mission Boys and Girls School four hundred fifty miles to the north. There Thornton learned Latin and loneliness and the look of human misery; China was in the throes of Sun Yat-sen’s revolution. More dispersals followed: Mrs. Wilder, now the mother of five, took the two youngest children, both daughters, to join her sister in Florence, and at the age of fifteen Thornton joined his older brother, Amos, at the Thacher School in California’s Ojai Valley.

This book delivers the requirements of The Writer's Craft and Knowledge About Language strands within the National Guideliens for 5-14 English Language in Scotland (Levels C and D). In particular, it will: enlighten pupils about the pleasure and skill in working with ideas and words: this will equip them to perform the Writer's Craft Tasks better; encourage a '3D' concept of creativity by direct and explicit comparisons of some thematically or technically linked writing - two writers will each give a different 'dimension' on the same subject (or theme). By extension, the pupils can more easily conceive of a third angle of their own, with openings for cross-curricular creative and investigative work; give pupils a sense of the origins and history of our language, a sense of continuity, and of their place in building on cultural traditions through their own writing. Section 1: Your Writing Toolkit, explains simply and clearly the analytical vocabulary and concepts that are essential for writing consciously. These include: punctuation, parts of speech, grammatical terms, literary techniques, structuring devices and editing skills. Section 2: The Writer's Craft Task, follows the Writer's Craft assessment model from the National Assessment Bank, where pupils are given a short sample text, and asked to continue it by assimilating and replicating content and style. In order to help pupils develop this technique, the book provides not only short extracts, both fiction and non-fiction, but also analytical questions after each extract, using the vocabulary and concepts explained in Section 1. Section 3: Stories, Poems and Pictures to Inspire You, contains complete short texts, prose and poetry, by both pupils and professional writers, all of which are inspiring examples of well-crafted writing. These are followed by analytical questions to direct the pupils' appreciation, and by suggestions for their own writing. There will also be images, each followed by open questions, to inspire a variety of creative responses from pupils, in both words and images.
