B. J. Harrison Reads The Courtship of Miles Standish Audiobook

B. J. Harrison Reads The Courtship of Miles Standish

Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Narrator: B. J. Harrison Release Date: February 2021

Miles Standish and Priscilla Mullins immigrate to America, where they meet a scholar and poet named John Alden. The two men become good friends, but they also both fall in love with Priscilla and a love triangle develops between the three of them. Miles Standish is a soldier, athletic and muscular, whilst John Alden is his complete opposite. Alden struggles, wondering whether he should listen to his heart and chose love over friendship. On the other hand, Standish has lost his wife and looks forward to proposing to Priscilla Mullins. Why did Miles and Priscilla immigrate to America? Did they know each other in advance? What will the two men do to win Priscilla's heart? Who will succeed? Will they sacrifice their friendship for love? Find all the answers in Henry Wadsworth's historical poem 'The Courtship of Miles Standish' from 1858. B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882) was an American poet. He studied at the Bowdoin College and thereafter became a professor at Harvard. Wadsworth was a popular figure in his day and the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's masterpiece the 'Divine Comedy'. Some of his major works include 'Evangeline' (1847), 'Paul Revere's Ride' (1860) and 'The Song of Hiawatha' (1855).

An Hour of Nature Poems - Volume 2 Audiobook

An Hour of Nature Poems - Volume 2

Silence is rare in Nature.When we really listen, Nature is conducting symphonies of sound as her world goes about the day and night. Her invisible heartbeat is everywhere, for everyone.Our eyes are constantly bathed in the wonder of her ways, the soft drizzle of rain from soft grey clouds, the bleached harsh desert sand of a noon day, a wave caressing the shore, to the ravenous colours of a departing sunset. Indeed, whenever we look and listen to the vastness of our world Nature's beauty is always there for us. She placates our anger, soothes our pain. Her vistas feed our hearts and souls; the world of a single flower brings a smile.In these 60 minutes nature takes us through her world of wonder.

The Fireside Poets Audiobook

The Fireside Poets

Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Gideon Wagner, Richard Mitchley Release Date: May 2020

This group of 19th Century American poets was the first to rival their British counterparts in popularity.Gathered around their New England roots they were also known as the Schoolroom or Household poets, and comprised of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, William Cullen Bryant, John Greenleaf Whittier, James Russell Lowell and Olivier Wendell Holmes Senior. Occasionally Ralph Waldo Emerson was included although his poetic philosophy differed in some key aspects. Each of these poets lived long and productive lives ensuring the longevity of the movement into the early 20th century. Their activities in the academic world, newspapers, the diplomatic service and lecture tours ensured they were constantly in the public eye. Their essential discipline was focused on domestic themes and morality. At the time one of the primary sources of entertainment for the family was to be gathered around the fireplace whilst poems were read.The Fireside Poets did not write for the sake of other poets or critics or for posterity. Instead they wrote for a contemporary audience of general readers. They were mass communicators. Today the Fireside Poets, along with the equivalent British poets of Victorian times, is still regarded as essential verse.
