Freedom From Religion Foundation in collaboration with the Yip Harburg Foundation, Jan 1, 2006 - Poetry - 232 pages
0 Reviews
Yip Harburg, the great American lyricist who wrote "Somewhere, Over the Rainbow," "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?", "It's Only a Paper Moon," "April in Paris," and Finian's Rainbow, delights us with his poetic genius in this collection of humorous, iconoclastic, and exhilaratingly human verses. Harburg wrote the lyrics and much of the screenplay for The Wizard of Oz. He was later blacklisted for his liberal views, though constantly admired for his immense talent. The 150+ poems are illustrated with whimsical cartoons by celebrated artist Seymour Chwast. Bonus material includes a biographical article on Harburg's life and a "Yip in his own words" section of comments on the art of songwriting and his life of collaboration with Ira Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Burton Lane, Vernon Duke, and Jay Gorney.
