[EAN: 9781931082945], Neubuch, [PU: Library of America], COLE PORTER,ROBERT KIMBALL,HUMOR AND ENTERTAINMENT,THEATER,POETRY, Music|Musicals, Performing Arts|Theater|General, Poetry|American, Poetry|General, Hardcover. 200 pages. Dimensions: 7.6in. x 4.6in. x 0.8in.Cole Porter possessed to a singular degree the art of expressing depth through apparent frivolity. The effervescent wit and technical bravura of his songs are matched by their unguarded revelations of feeling. In the words of editor Robert Kimball, Porter wrote tellingly of the pain and evanescence of emotional relationships. He gentle mocked propriety and said that few things were simple or lasting or free from ambiguity. Of the masters of twentieth-century American songwriting, Porter was one of the few who wrote both music and lyrics, and, even in the absence of his melodies, his words distill an unmistakable mixture of poignancy and wit that marks him as a genius of light verse. Selected from over eight hundred songs, here are Porters finest flights of invention, lyrics that are an indelible part of 20th-century culture: Lets Do It, Love for Sale, I Get a Kick Out of You, Anything Goes, In the Still of the Night, I Concentrate on You, and dozens more. Robert Kimball is a historian of the American musical theater whose books include The Gershwins (with Alfred Simon), Reminiscing with Sissle and Blake (with William Bolcom), Reading Lyrics (with Robert Gottlieb), and volumes devoted to the complete lyrics of Lorenz Hart, Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, and Frank Loesser. He is the longtime advisor to the Cole Porter Musical and Literary Property Trust, is the editor of several books on Cole Porter, including Cole and The Complete Lyrics of Cole Porter. He received a Drama Desk Award for his rediscovery of lost musical-theater manuscripts in a Secaucus, New Jersey warehouse. Elegantly risqu, suffused with understated emotion, delightful in their bursts of comic invention, the witty and romantic lyrics of Cole Porter evoke a golden age of song. Here is the cream of half a century of songwriting, from the Jazz Age resonance of Lets Misbehave to such 50s classics as Too Darn Hot and Its All Right With Me-more than ninety of the most enduring works of Americas master of bittersweet sophistication.
