  • The Art of Public Speaking an apposite anecdote has saved many a speech from failure. "There is no finer opportunity for the display of tact than in the introduction of witty or humorous stories into a discourse. Wit is keen and like a rapier, piercing deeply, sometimes even to the heart. Humor is good−natured, and does not wound. Wit is founded upon the sudden discovery of an unsuspected relation existing between two ideas. Humor deals with things out of relation−−with the incongruous. It was wit in Douglass Jerrold to retort upon the scowl of a stranger whose shoulder he had...

  • My little two-story house by the Ohashigawa, although dainty as a birdcage, proved much too small for comfort at the approach of the hot season— the rooms being scarcely higher than steamship cabins, and so narrow that an ordinary mosquito-net could not be suspended in them. I was sorry to lose the beautiful lake view, but I found it necessary to remove to the northern quarter of the city, into a very quiet Street behind the mouldering castle. My new home is a katchiu-yashiki, the ancient residence of some samurai of high rank. It...

  • Stories from tribes across the North American continent show both the divergent philsophies, as well as the common ground. The editors have wonderfully resisted any urge to edit these stories. Each chapter opens with an overview provided by Erdoes and Ortiz. There are occasional editorial explanations at the ends of stories.

  • Each chapter opens with an overview provided by Erdoes and Ortiz. There are occasional editorial explanations at the ends of stories. They should expecially be applauded for including stories with humor. As someone with Indian ancestry, but not a traditional Indian upbringing, I enjoyed the experience of spiritual concordance with the basic philosophies, no matter which tribe or region of the country was being presented. The book is easily readable by most age groups; parents of younger children could read these as entertainment and even bed-tiime stories.

  • In the following pages, we aim to take Emerson’s advice. This text is a serious examination of clinical interviewing as a professional activity; it includes the “grammar, writing, reading, and arithmetic” of professional interviewing. But in the spirit of Emerson, we have also smuggled in some contraband, and we encourage you to do the same. For our part, we include occasional humor, the practical application of fantasy through skill-building activities, and stories of our own and our colleagues’ pitfalls and successes.

  • Again, you have lots of article possibilities: interviews with exterminators, how to prevent rodents infesting your house or apartment, interviews at the pet store with people buying rats for pets, and so on. Or you could write a humorous short story with a persecuted rat as the narrator. There have already been novels and films about rats, so you’d have to find a new way of approaching that topic—we’ll look at ways to do that a little later in this chapter. One more example: the slumlord. What’s it really like living in a slum—are the horrors exaggerated? Why don’t...

  • Everything was perfectly swell. There were no prisons, no slums, no insane asylums, no cripples, no poverty, no wars. All diseases were conquered. So was old age. Death, barring accidents, was an adventure for volunteers. The population of the United States was stabilized at forty-million souls. One bright morning in the Chicago Lying-in Hospital, a man named Edward K. Wehling, Jr., waited for his wife to give birth. He was the only man waiting. Not many people were born a day any more.

  • Burlesque, that is comic imitation, comprises parody and caricature. The latter is a valuable addition to humorous narrative, as we see in the sketches of Gillray, Cruikshank and others. By itself it is not sufficiently suggestive and affords no story or conversation. Hence in the old caricatures the speeches of the characters were written in balloons over their heads, and in the modern an explanation is added underneath. For want of such assistance we lose the greater part of the humour in Hogarth's paintings. We may date the revival of Parody from the fifteenth century, although Dr.
