The Poetry of Cats Audiobook

The Poetry of Cats

The cat. Independent when it wants and making us dependent on its whims when it deems. Cats are first thought of as being domesticated in the Near East in about 7500 BC. A few thousand years later in Ancient Egypt they are worshipped as gods. From a domestic cat's point of view this is pretty much the life they want and that some cats lead right now. Their larger cousins whether in forest, savannah, mountains or desert were fated for their speed, strength, beauty, feline powers and prowess. They now live in a finely balanced world between freedom and declining numbers as their habitats are destroyed or taken from them. Across the centuries poets have written verse that captures all manner of thoughts on our complex relationship with all cats, though mainly the humble moggy, on whose whims we slave over, eager for a look of recognition, the nod of thanks or the purr of gratitude.

Fifty Shades of Spring Audiobook

Fifty Shades of Spring

Nature's year begins. Temperatures slowly rise. Green gradually becomes the dominant colour of the landscape. Rain from drenching showers to windy squalls help nourish the land. Nature has embarked on her epic symphony of the year. Each year, each season, each day is a little different from her previous work. Days lengthen as her canvas and palette grows more confident. Colour emerges from the shades of monochrome. She is at work on tasks everywhere.Naturally our classic poets rise to the challenge knowing that they will only be able to detail fragments or broad brush stroke the whole. They ponder, they write, they wonder.In fifty poems we take you on their inspiring journey reflecting on the miracle of Spring.

An Hour of Nature Poems - Volume 1 Audiobook

An Hour of Nature Poems - Volume 1

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 Victorian Laureates Audiobook

The Victorian Laureates

The office of Poet Laureate goes back many centuries – informally to the time of Geoffrey Chaucer in 1389 and followed thereafter by a number of ‘volunteer laureates’. It was formally assigned to Ben Jonson in 1617 and, as a Royal office by letters patent in 1670, to John Dryden. It is a rich, rewarding history that bursts with the words, themes and visions of many great poets that has bound poetry and poets to a Nations soul.Victoria’s reign is mainly remembered as that which harnessed and amplified The Industrial Revolution with its myriad of inventions and the reinvention of society from agricultural to manufacturing. From there its thirst for markets and raw materials created a massive ‘Age of Empire’ that bestrode the globe yet, in its wake, left many in its homeland, destitute, impoverished and bereft of the advantages it trumpeted on a world stage. In the Arts its artists flourished, exhibiting and publishing abroad working in new techniques and new media. In literature such noted talents as Dickens, Trollope, Thackeray, the Bronte sisters and many, many others were ambitious and acclaimed. In Poetry we were spoilt for choice; the Brownings, Matthew Arnold, Coventry Patmore, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling, an endless succession of wordsmiths. Those Laureates appointed in Queen Victoria’s reign to represent the Nation are three in number and quite simply are staggering in both verse and talent: William Wordsworth, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Alfred Austin.

For many in Europe the focus has shifted west to the Americas, both by settlement and by war against the indigenous tribes.

St Georges Day - A Holiday in Verse Audiobook

St Georges Day - A Holiday in Verse

Author: John Keats, Robert Browning, William Wordsworth Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Jake Urry, Richard Mitchley Release Date: January 2019

The United States has July 4th, Ireland St Patrick's Day and France Bastille Day.Most Nations celebrate a particular day as 'theirs'. That day is when they turn to themselves; to reflect on the past, to revel in the present and to look forward to the future.For England 23rd April is St George's Day.St George, a hero from bygone days, who slays Dragons and pursues other mythic deeds, is part of childhood. But for modern times, for modern Nations, a greater purpose is needed.For England St George is best now described as a principle. A small Nation grown large and respected for its brainpower, brawn and ingenuity and fighting for beliefs, misguidedly or not, that others can't or won't.Of course England's role has changed many times over the centuries but perhaps its basic tenets and desires haven't. Fair Play. A role for everyone on equal terms. Democracy. Tolerance. A safe haven for those oppressed. England 'expects' and sometimes succeeds.

The Lake Poets Audiobook

The Lake Poets

Strictly speaking The Lake Poets were not a movement or school of poetry they were only so named as such by The Edinburgh Review so that they could be disparaged.It was a spectacular backfire!The three main figures would be rightly seen as among the most monumental figures in English poetry - William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the under rated but immense Robert Southey, himself a thirty year poet laureate.The profound majesty of the Lake District, an area of almost unequalled beauty, of mythical landscapes and beguiling charm influenced and acted as muse to their burgeoning talents.Their creations have ennobled this poetry as an art form that is intense, lyrical, moving and above all deliciously satisfying.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.
