Descrizione prodotto


Eric P. Kelly, a student of Slavic culture for most of his life, wrote The Trumpeter of Krakow while teaching and studying at the University of Krakow. During five years spent in Poland he traveled with an American relief unit among the Poles who were driven out of the Ukraine in 1920, directed a supply train at the time of the war with the Soviets, and studied and visited many places in the country he came to love so well. A newspaperman in his native Massachusetts in younger days, Mr. Kelly later wrote many magazine articles and several books for young people. He died in 1960.

3.0 su 5 stelle Good book but a little slow 14 aprile 2015
Di Allison Wright - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I'm a fifth grade boy, and I read this book for school. I didn't like The Trumpeter of Krakow, by Eric P. Kelly, as much as I thought I would,
even though it is historical fiction, which is my favorite. The storyline didn't build up quickly, so I thought it was kind of slow-- and that's coming from a guy who LOVES historical fiction. It is not like other historical fiction books, which mostly focus on the characters and the action of the story. This book has a lot of descriptions, even of things that do not really matter much to the reader, which sometimes makes it confusing. For instance when the main characters, the Charnetskis, enter Krakow, the author describes practically everything-- he describes the churches, passersby, buildings--everything the characters see. Personally I think that all of the description slows down the story. However, I think
the reason the author chose to describe everything is because no one from our time has been to 15th Century Krakow, Poland, and we
don't know what it was like. In that way, the descriptions helped me feel like I was in Krakow during the story. But I still would've preferred a quick build to the plot rather than a lot of description. Overall, it was worth reading but not as exciting as I would have liked. (PS-- my mom disagrees...she thought it was GREAT!)

History Buffs will love this medieval fairy tale. Kelly's attempt to recreate archaic grammar and sentence structure made the reader feel at home in 1490s Krakow. At times the descriptive writing seemed a bit too detailed.

Gripping story set in the renaisance time. My students and I love this book! Very well written, and not twaddly at all.

Di James E. Hill - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
An old man's (I'll turn 86 in a couple months) English teacher assigned this book for me about 70 years ago. I recall myself as a youngster as being a little bright and more than a little lazy, and I probably scanned it enough to be able to scribble a couple page book report, but I remembered the title. Recently I had occasion to meet someone who had visited Krakow and I reread this engrossing novel. As I did that, I gained a new appreciation, not only for a bit of Eastern European history and culture, but for those nameless and nearly forgotten teachers who attempted to force me to broaden my horizon. We who have been dubbed the "Greatest Generation" which served in a great conflict and pushed mankind into space and the computer age, should pause and ask for a little credit for those who trained us. The setting for this tale is in the territory where the pivotal event of the twentieth century was initiated. The price of the book is modest. I encourage all my fellow seniors to buy it and reread it.

4.0 su 5 stelle Well-Polished Tale 21 agosto 2009
Di KC - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This Newberry Award Winner from the 40's will still intrigue young readers of the 21st century, though they must steel themselves for a bit of early exposition. The opening chapter is fast out of the gates as it gives the historical background for why the trumpeter of Krakow always plays a "broken note" at the end of the Heynal, a hymn played from the tower of the Church of Our Lady Mary.

Then comes the exposition, but along around p. 40 the book provides a perfect villain in Bogdan, a half Tartar/half Cossack, and a prized crystal, the Great Tarnov Chystal. Historical background is provided with a substantial subplot involving an alchemist working in the lodgings above our heroes, Andrew Charnetski, his son Joseph, and his wife. Fights, intrigue, fires, treachery, black magic... there's a little of everything here. Mention is also made of The Philosopher's Stone (he first Harry Potter book was named after one and the same). Recommended, especially if you're Polish and are interested in your heritage and the beautiful city of Krakow. History buffs and historical fiction fans will also find rewards in this book.
