This book is a guide to Berg's second opera, Lulu, written in non-technical language and intended for those students and music lovers wishing to become familiar with one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century music. Jarman presents a clear and concise introduction to the musical language and to the intricate musical and dramatic structure of Berg's opera. The volume also examines the literary background, the genesis, composition, and tortuous posthumous career of the work. The final chapters survey the performance history and suggest a possible interpretation of this complex and challenging composition. An important feature of the book is the inclusion of source documents and critical responses to the opera. Illustrated with photographs from the premiere and from recent productions, the volume also includes a synopsis, bibliography, and discography.
Lulu and the Ant: A Message of Love; Lulu and the Dark: Conquering Fears; and Lulu and Willy the Duck: Learning Mirror Work; These three stories were written to help today’s child grow up with a strong sense of self-esteem and courage. As adults, we sometimes forget that children have many more issues to deal with than we did when we were their age. They’re constantly being put into the position of making choices, and are steadily being barraged with news about the critical state of the world. How children handle these issues is a direct reflection of how they truly feel about themselves. The more a child loves and respects him- or herself, the easier it will be to make the right choice.

Lulu Auger's life is what fairy tales are made of: a poor farm girl from rural Minnesota goes to Washington, D.C., to seek her fortune. On the way, she meets a dashing prince who sweeps her into marriage. Wealth and fame eventually follow as they open a successful restaurant visited regularly by the who's-who of the nation's capitol. Yet any glamour in this fairy tale existence was short-lived. Her prince turned into a domineering and disloyal husband. Success didn't fulfill her and money couldn't buy her happiness. Desperate for acceptance, belonging, and love, Lulu sought comfort in the arms of the New Age occult--a decision she almost paid for with her life. Heartening yet hopeful, the saga of Lulu's life, her search for fulfillment, and her ultimate decision to accept Christ will captivate readers and become a source of encouragement and hope for anyone walking through the dark valleys of life.
An 11-year old girl named Lulu meets a delightful creature called a hi. Hies are not very bright, but they're very nice. They are fat and they can change sizes. They love purple and hate orange and black.
