THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SPOKEN WORD POETRY COLLECTION FROM LANA DEL REY, VIOLET BENT BACKWARDS OVER THE GRASS   'Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many. Some of which came to me in their entirety, which I dictated and then typed out, and some that I worked laboriously picking apart each word to make the perfect poem. They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason I'm proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic.' Lana Del Rey   Lana Del Rey brings her breathtaking poetry to life in an unprecedented audiobook. In this stunning spoken-word performance, Lana Del Rey reads fourteen poems from her debut book Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass accompanied by music from Grammy Award-winning musician Jack Antonoff.   Lana's debut book solidifies her further as 'the essential writer of her times' (The Atlantic). This audiobook features Lana reading select poems from the book, including LA Who Am I to Love You?, The Land of 1,000 Fires, Past the Bushes Cypress Thriving, Never to Heaven, Tessa DiPietro, Happy and several others.

The Beat Poet Experience Audiobook

The Beat Poet Experience

Author: Beat Poet Experience Narrator: Dave O'kelly Release Date: July 2020

'The Beat Poet Experience' is formed around the poetry and dynamism of performance artist David O'Kelly, paying more than a passing nod to the Beat Poets of the 60’s. It embraces warmly all that we love and hate about ourselves with a wry twist of phrase and some of the hottest jazz licks his side of New Orleans... Reflecting the major works of Beat works such as Allen Ginsberg's 'Howl' (1956), William S. Burroughs's 'Naked Lunch' (1959) and Jack Kerouac's 'On the Road' (1957), the Beat Poet Experience joins these members of the Beat Generation as one of the new bohemian hedonists celebrating non-conformity and spontaneous creativity. This audiobook contains songs, lyrics, and poems that have been written and performed over the last two decades in New York, Prague and London. It is Beat Poetry with an English twist and an eye to the odd, crazy frailty of human nature with incredible performances from some of the best players currently on London’s vibrant jazz scene. These are poems about life, death and magic. Each track is an episode of delicate organic sound and lyrics. Incorporating a number of different styles and sounds, such as jazz, blues, reggae, punk and classical, as well as live performance, the Beat Poet Experience is always theatrical, sometimes a little crazy but inevitably an event that leaves the audience feeling that they have participated in a psychedelic rush of language, social commentary, humour, spectacle and serotonin inducing euphoria. An uplifting connection back to those anarchic happenings of the sixties and seventies, firmly plugged into the zeitgeist of 2010, The Beat Poet Experience is fast becoming a quality fixture in the musical theatre, performance art genre and will bring energy, poetry and drama right to your doorstep.

A Little History of Poetry Audiobook

A Little History of Poetry

Author: John Carey Narrator: Ralph Lister Release Date: July 2020

A vital, engaging, and hugely enjoyable guide to poetry, from ancient times to the present, by one of our greatest champions of literature What is poetry? If music is sound organized in a particular way, poetry is a way of organizing language. It is language made special so that it will be remembered and valued. It does not always work—over the centuries countless thousands of poems have been forgotten. This little history is about some that have not. John Carey tells the stories behind the world’s greatest poems, from the oldest surviving one written nearly four thousand years ago to those being written today. Carey looks at poets whose works shape our views of the world, such as Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Whitman, and Yeats. He also looks at more recent poets, like Derek Walcott, Marianne Moore, and Maya Angelou, who have started to question what makes a poem “great” in the first place. This little history shines a light on the richness and variation of the world’s poems—and the elusive quality that makes them all the more enticing.

The Tree of Quietus: Archaic Chronicles Audiobook

The Tree of Quietus: Archaic Chronicles

Author: L.N. Amethyst Narrator: L.N. Amethyst Release Date: July 2020

L.N. Amethyst introduces himself with a sacred novelette that can be readily read by everyone, during any time, and anywhere. Rather the reader falls into the livelihood of young adult, new adult, middle-aged, or elderly through the lens of a scientific informational and naturalistic admirer, or an artistic poetic personae personified with creative desire, prepare to be presented a story that can bring even the downtrodden of times to aspire an atmospheric smile across every reader within mile, while at these exact moments, reveal how exactly humanity is causing torments towards our one and only earth through personal possessive laments.  ~~~ A fellowship fervent family of four fervid their steps as they strolled towards the Tree of Quietus; a father, mother, daughter, and son. In a world engulfed upon times of crossed crossroads of crimes and timeless rarities of rarefied rhymes, the guardians wanted to teach the duo who are now young adults about the severity of nature and how it serves its purpose to infuse tantalizing azures of ales alluring and advocating upon a river of cerulean sky-lit fireflies, and trusting tresses of trees that stood strong and perilously proud from their trussing elderly barks. And so, the sparkling souls those incredible parents entitled were entities of rhinestones which cleanse the onyx nights from wicked treason of such diluted parenthood that followed falsified irrelevant reasoning, beautifully replacing these tyrannical treason with the pleasant auras of ivories, which ascended from the soil when our Earth's days had spread its wings and glided with the earned earnest of pleasantries.

Paradise Lost: Penguin Classics Audiobook

Paradise Lost: Penguin Classics

Author: John Milton Narrator: Adrian Schiller Release Date: June 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Adrian Schiller. In Paradise Lost Milton produced poem of epic scale, conjuring up a vast, awe-inspiring cosmos and ranging across huge tracts of space and time. And yet, in putting a charismatic Satan and naked Adam and Eve at the centre of this story, he also created an intensely human tragedy on the Fall of Man. Written when Milton was in his fifties - blind, bitterly disappointed by the Restoration and briefly in danger of execution - Paradise Lost's apparent ambivalence towards authority has led to intense debate about whether it manages to 'justify the ways of God to men', or exposes the cruelty of Christianity.
