Abstract:

From the Publisher: In the words used to eulogize the great and celebrated men and women of the world, we come as close as perhaps we ever will to seeing the warm humanity beneath their public personas. In Farewell, Godspeed, Cyrus M. Copeland has gathered some of the greatest of these writings about artists, scientists, writers, public servants, entertainers, and others who have captured our attention by making the world a better -or at least a livelier and more pleasant-place. Here is Andy Warhol's close friend describing Warhol's hidden spirituality. Albert Einstein's assistant describing his humanism. Edward Kennedy remembering with a brother's tenderness the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Larry McMurtry's lively and loving tribute to Irving "Swifty" Lazar. And Robert Bernstein, longtime publisher and friend of Dr. Seuss, wonderfully memorializing him with special, never-before-published verse. Also included are the eulogies of the Challenger astronauts by President Ronald Reagan. In these moving and personal tributes we see at last the vulnerabilities and nuances of character that are often hidden from the spotlight.
