SUMMARY

"Seen from across a field at night, with its swags of white lights scalloped from mast to mast against the sky, it looks like an ocean liner far out on the water. Yet it is still a tent. It appears on Monday, in what was an empty field on Sunday. While it's there, it forms the landscape around it in a new way, transforming its meanings just as horses do when they walk into a pasture. A week later, there's an empty field again. The tent is gone, and so is the little village of trucks and trailers that clustered around it as if it were a castle. Did I dream it?" --from Night After NightNight After Nightis an enrapturing meditation on a small, traditional, one-ring circus. Diana Cooper delights us with the realization that circus is more than mere entertainment. It is a splendid classical art form, grounded in venerable skills and traditions, with its deepest sources in the vitality of myth, ritual, fantasy, fear, wonder, laughter, and awe.Throughout the book, Cooper raises important issues such as human/animal communication and coexistence, permutations of fantasy and reality, the beauties of diversity, and notions about what is, and is not natural. Her love of and respect for the culture of circus -- the forms and understandings that enable it to bring joy to all it touches- infuse every page of this literary treasure.Cooper, Diana S. is the author of 'Night After Night' with ISBN 9781559633062 and ISBN 1559633069.
