Fifty Shades of Love Audiobook

Fifty Shades of Love

The most enduring and popular theme of poems and poets is that of love. Can anyone think of a poet who has not in inky lines described their pursuit of love, their hopes for love, their loss of love, their unrequited love, their love of love ..... No.The language of poetry is mysterious but yearns to capture the essence and all aspects of its subject. In 'Love' it finds a difficult mistress. Individual poems can capture individual moments but has any one poem found within its lexicon the formula for the attainment of love? Again, the answer is 'No'.Love changes, its rhythms pause and pulse on the tiniest of things and the biggest of thrills. Within its shades all other feelings, all other emotions, gently reside, waiting for their moment.In these fifty poems the many, many shades of love reveal themselves.....

Fifty Shades of Autumn Audiobook

Fifty Shades of Autumn

Nature continues to give. Riots of colour, of harvest are summoned. It seems almost at will. Her palette is richer. There is a depth to everything, made deeper still by the sun beginning to hang lower in the sky, it's light denser, glowing at dawn and at twilight, enriching everything it falls upon.Our classic poets take stock. They have seen her bounty - this act of giving - many times before. Yet, yet still it's majesty almost refuses the salute of words. Undaunted their verse is given, connections and revelations fall upon the page.In fifty poems we take you on their inspiring journey, reflecting on the miracle of Autumn.

15 Minutes Of Love Poems - Volume 4 Audiobook

15 Minutes Of Love Poems - Volume 4

Author: Andrew Marvell, Lord Byron, Walt Whitman Narrator: Richard Mitchley Release Date: May 2020

Love. What is love?The question is asked by each of us but the answer remains elusive. Dictionaries summon up many words but none fulfill. Love itself is often ethereal, felt but only seen in a glance, a look, a fleeting touch. Part of Love’s beauty is perhaps in the fact that the question never can be adequately answered; its ephemeral, a chimera of the heart and only felt. Our own experiences are unique and personal to ourselves and of little help defining it for another.Love is perhaps best expressed through poetry. As Plato said 2500 years ago “At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet”. Writing a love poem for ones’ partner is seen as the most romantic of gestures. It opens our hearts to another's. Lovers love.Here, in this volume history’s greatest poets convey thoughts, feelings and sentiments of love to you in quick (or bite-size) conversations of verse that can slip into your day and your partner's heart.

It was also the Age of the Romantics; Shelley, Keats, Byron lyrically rapture. Tennyson, Arnold, Browning rode a century of sweeping change of dynamism and great verse.

The Great Poets: Lord Byron Audiobook

The Great Poets: Lord Byron

Author: Lord Byron Narrator: Simon Russell Beale Release Date: August 2018

Today Byron is regarded as the ultimate romantic - a rebel, a Casanova and a man of intense, brooding passion. He was the most famous literary man of his time, and his poetry, endlessly witty and often insightful, was immensely popular and hugely influential. From the delicate romanticism of She Walks in Beauty to the evocative reflections of So We'll Go No More a Roving, Byron's poems were unrivalled in their power and potency. Lesser-known poems such as Destruction of Sennacherib, a reimagining of the biblical story of Sennacherib, Prometheus, a sardonic poem about the Greek gods, and Darkness, an apocalyptic story of the last man on earth, also included here, reveal Byron to be a poet of great range and variety. 'Mad, bad and dangerous to know', Lord Byron was without equal in English literature.

The Poetry of Lord Byron Audiobook

The Poetry of Lord Byron

Author: Lord Byron Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Gideon Wagner, Richard Mitchley Release Date: August 2018

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, but more commonly known as just Byron was a leading English poet in the Romantic Movement along with Keats and Shelley.Byron was born on January 22nd, 1788. He was a great traveller across Europe, spending many years in Italy and much time in Greece. With his aristocratic indulgences, flamboyant style along with his debts, and a string of lovers he was the constant talk of society. In 1823 he joined the Greeks in their war of Independence against the Ottoman Empire, both helping to fund and advise on the war's conduct. It was an extraordinary adventure, even by his own standards. But, for us, it is his poetry for which he is mainly remembered even though it is difficult to see where he had time to write his works of immense beauty. But write them he did. He died on April 19th 1824 after having contracted a cold which, on the advice of his doctors, was treated with blood-letting. This cause complications and a violent fever set in. Byron died like his fellow romantics, tragically young and on some foreign field. This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing. Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.
