Chequerboard and Other Poems New Generation Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

I've known you now for so very long, I look at you and burst into song. From the moment we digest these opening lines of Ashok Sawhny's paean of praise to London town, we capture the exuberant mood of an author determined to find beauty - and humour - in his surroundings. He may be versifying on the golf swing, the Enstrom 480B helicopter or Indian elections - 'Long live the electorate - so long as they vote for me and my mate!' - or reflecting on the sands of time against a glowing sunset. Whatever the setting, a genial cynicism and wry acceptance of the workings of fate colour and inform these hundred-plus poems. True, there is an aknowledged darker side to life, contrasting with the brightness of our days of love and laughter; hence the Chequerboard. But as the world welcomes a new US President in the White House, the author looks to mankind to respond positively. And that is what his readers are bound to do. AUTHOR BIO: Ashok Sawhny was born in Lahore, Punjab, in 1937. The family moved to New Delhi, India after Partition in 1947. Schooled at Modern School and graduating in Economics from St Stephen's College, Delhi, he worked with Indian Industry until 1977 and then started his own International Trading Company, Monarch International, of which he is president. His love for art, literature and the finer side of life finds expression in his previous books The Sands of Time, As Time Goes By and Fruit Salad. He also writes in Urdu language.

How close was I to the end today? Was life in danger of losing its way? Wandering, whistling in the dark, A lonely soul on Noah's ark. Your words, says Ashok Sawhny, are what matter most, and these poems in his latest collection have a distinctly philosophical, sometimes elegiac, air, whether he's dealing with Man and his Maker, an MRI scan or a missing feathered friend. The author views with misgivings the Grim Reaper - don't we all? - but has plenty of time to enjoy Nature, the teeming subcontinent of his birth and the recollection of a first kiss. Here then is life, here is truth dressed as poetry for us all to enjoy. Ashok Sawhny was born in Lahore, Punjab, in 1937. The family moved to New Delhi, India after Partition in 1947.

His love for art, literature and the finer side of life finds expression in his earlier books, The Sands of Time, As Time Goes By, Fruit Salad, Chequerboard and To Have Loved. He also writes in Urdu language. `Ashok Sawhny not only is prolific in his output of poems, his work provokes us into new realms of thinking about the world and our lives.ż David McNally, EVEN EAGLES NEED A PUSH

Finch, Andrew - Poems New Generation Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

ANDREW FINCH read Modern Languages at Oxford and was awarded a First. He went into teaching, and after experience at two other schools was appointed Headmaster of a new secondary school in Leicestershire with, in its first year, only 140 pupils. This little school was to pioneer new ideas in education. By the time he had guided it through more than twenty years of change, innovation and development, he found himself Principal of a thriving Upper School and Community College of over 1100 students. Writing and lecturing widely on educational topics, he has found time also to pursue a lifelong enthusiasm for music as a semi-professional classical pianist, playing in concerts and giving recitals in many parts of the country. He retired in 1981 and devoted himself to supporting a number of organisations concerned with peace, justice and the environment. Now enjoying a fortunate and healthy old age, he loves seeing his children and his friends, or keeping in touch with them by phone or correspondence if they live further away. From a review of the same author's previous book 'Variations'. The result is in my opinion a sensitive series of poems that express a wide range of personal experiences written in a language which is easily understood and which meets the aims of the author in that they 'strike a responsive chord' in the reader. The rhythm and sound of the words when spoken aloud never falters or jars and compares to the skilfully crafted 'wholeness' of the favourite piece of music. Paula Whirrity, Poetry Now Magazine.

Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The first collected and annotated edition of Carroll's brilliant, witty poems, edited by Gillian Beer. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe...' wrote Lewis Carroll in his wonderfully playful poem of nonsense verse, 'Jabberwocky'. This new edition collects together the marvellous range of Carroll's poetry, including nonsense verse, parodies, burlesques, and more. Alongside the title piece are such enduringly wonderful pieces as 'The Walrus and the Carpenter', 'The Mock Turtle's Song', 'Father William' and many more. This edition also includes notes, a chronology and an introduction by Gillian Beer that discusses Carroll's love of puzzles and wordplay and the relationship of his poetry with the Alice books. "Opening at random Gillian Beer's new edition of Lewis Carroll's poems, Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense, guarantees a pleasurable experience - not all of it nonsensical". (Times Literary Supplement). Lewis Carroll was the pen-name of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Born in 1832, he was educated at Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford, where he was appointed lecturer in mathematics in 1855, and where he spent the rest of his life. In 1861 he took deacon's orders, but shyness and a stammer prevented him from seeking the priesthood. His most famous works, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1872), were originally written for Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of his college. Charles Dodgson died of bronchitis in 1898. Gillian Beer is King Edward VII Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Cambridge and past President of Clare Hall College. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and of the Royal Society of Literature. Among her works are Darwin's Plots (1983; third edition, 2009), George Eliot (1986), Arguing with the Past: Essays in Narrative from Woolf to Sidney (1989), Open Fields: Science in Cultural Encounter (1996) and Virginia Woolf: The Common Ground (1996).

Dvorak: Complete symphonies, Slavonic dances, Overtures, Symphonic poems brilliant classics

Książki naukowe>Sztuka>Muzyka, śpiew i taniec>Muzyka poważna

Spread over nine CDs, this release represents a treasure trove of works by Dvorák, dedicated to and featuring the best of his orchestral music. The composer stands as the most popular of the Czech nationalist movement, one who despite German influences (Dvorák counted Brahms and Wagner among his inspirations) became a byword in the assimilation of folk roots into serious musical composition. Not only did he use existing melodies, but he composed his own folk-based themes too.Apart from the nine symphonies, which of course include the enduringly popular 'New World', written during the composer's sojourn in America, the compilation also features a series of overtures (such as the famous Carnival Overture, an exuberant celebration of human life at its best), tone poems (A Hero's Song, which is a sort of Czech equivalent to Strauss's somewhat later Ein Heldenleben, and four gruesome folk ballads which represent the composer's Indian Summer, among others), the famous Czech Suite which has a Mozart Serenade quality about it, and the two sets of Slavonic Dances -- the first of which represents a tribute from the younger composer to Brahms's own Hungarian Dances and firmly established Dvorák as a leader of the new Czech national school.Performing these works is a trio of great ensembles: the Staatskapelle Berlin under their esteemed director of 26 years, Otmar Suitner; The Janácek Philharmonic Orchestra -- natural experts in this type of repertoire; and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, performing under the baton of John Farrer. The edition is an excellent addition to the Brilliant Classics orchestral catalogue and records a crucial facet of the output of one of Europe's most famous composers.Other information:- Recorded in 1979--2004.- An excellent bargain set in the best Brilliant Classics tradition: the complete symphonies, symphonic poems, overtures and Slavonic Dances of Antonin Dvorák.- The set contains all the symphonic works which made Dvorak one of the best and universally loved romantic composers (and who knew how to write a good tune!): the 9-th symphony "From the New World" (one of the most popular symphonies ever written), the charming Czech Suite, haunting symphonic poems (Noon Witch, the Water Goblin) and the exhilarating complete Slavonic Dances. Music pouring from a warm and fiercely beating heart, in which the folklore music of Dvorák's home country is never far away.- Excellent performances by the Berlin Staatskapelle/Otmar Suitner, the Janacek Philharmonic/Theodore Kuchar and the Royal Philharmonic/John Farrer.- Contains notes on the composer and the music....

"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars" is the second delightful collection of stories and poems from Gervase Phinn. Following on from the terrific success of "A Wayne in a Manger", Gervase Phinn has collected together from his bestselling "Dales" books his favourite stories about children, and included some poems from his popular Puffin poetry books. In this humorously illustrated book, the stories have one thing in common - the wonderfully funny (and usually innocent) things that children say. What makes Naomi's granny wobble? What's the secret ingredient in Richard's jam tarts? What is Billy's unconventional method for making babies? Whether they are stories about children who cannot read very well but know the names of many breeds of sheep or children who are more privileged (coming to school in a Wolls-Woyce), they are simply delightful. "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars" is a heart-warming book will enchant you, as Gervase Phinn helps you look at life through a child's eyes - and that's quite a special thing. "Gervase Phinn's memoirs have made him a hero in school staff-rooms". ("Daily Telegraph"). Gervase Phinn is an author and educator from Rotherham who, after teaching for fourteen years in a variety of schools, moved to North Yorkshire to be a school inspector. He has written autobiographies, novels, plays, collections of poetry and stories, as well as a number of books about education. He holds five fellowships, honorary doctorates from Hull, Leicester and Sheffield Hallam universities, and is a patron of a number of children's charities and organizations. He is married with four adult children. His books include "The Other Side of the Dale", "Over Hill and Dale", "Head Over Heels in the Dales", "The Heart of the Dales", "Up and Down in the Dales" and "Trouble at the Little Village School".

Warrior's Life Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

At the end of the Napoleonic Wars, a generation of French soldiers found themselves haunted by defeat and disappointment. One of these soldiers was Alfred de Vigny, an aristocratic poet who also served as a garrison officer. The Warrior's Life consists of his enigmatic reflections, autobiographical anecdotes and philosophical meditations on the nature of war and the strange life of the soldier, vividly conveying the deprivation and discipline of military service, but also its comradeship, stoicism and stern code of duty. Looking back to a lost age of military valour, haunted by dreams of former glory, this is one of the great works of early nineteenth-century Romanticism. Alfred de Vigny (1797-1863) came from an ancient military family that was impoverished by the French Revolution. In 1814 he joined the royal bodyguard, in which he served for thirteen years, but he never saw serious action. The feeling of stasis and regret this engendered, of having been just too young to have been involved in the drama and high adventure of the Napoleonic Wars is the great theme of his most famous work, The Military Life (Servitude et grandeur militaires). Even before he had resigned from the army he was already famous as a key French writer of the Romantic movement, through such works as his Poems antiques et modernes (1826). Much of the remainder of his life was spent withdrawn from Parisian society, dogged by financial worries and caring for his mother and his invalid wife. His remaining major works were published posthumously: most notably Journal d'un poete and the poems Les Destinees. Roger Gard, who died in 2000, was educated at Abbotsholme School, Derbyshire, in the Royal Artillery and at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. He was Emeritus Reader in English in the University of London. He was the author of books on Henry James, Jane Austen and the teaching of fiction in schools. He also edited Henry James' A Landscape Painter and Other Tales, The Jolly Corner and Other Tales and a selection of his literary criticism, The Critical Muse, for Penguin Classics.

Strong in the Rain BLOODAXE BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933) is now widely viewed as Japan's greatest poet of the 20th century. Little known in his lifetime, he died at 37 from tuberculosis, but has since become a much loved children's author whose magical tales have been translated into many languages, adapted for the stage and turned into films and animations. Recognition for his poetry came much later. "Strong in the Rain" - the title-poem of this selection - is now arguably the most memorised and quoted modern poem in Japan. Both intensely lyrical and permeated with a sophisticated scientific understanding of the universe, Kenji Miyazawa's poems testify to his deep love of humanity and nature. From a young age, he was fascinated by plants, insects, and especially minerals, which he collected. At school, his interest in nature deepened, and he began poring through books on philosophy and Buddhism, which were to strongly influence his later writing. Miyazawa drew on nature in a way that no modern Japanese author had before him. Where other writers tended to use it as a springboard for their own meditations, he saw himself not just as nature's faithful chronicler and recorder but as its medium: light, wind and rain are processed through him before being recreated on the page. His mode of active engagement with nature set him apart from virtually all other Japanese poets, and led to his work being largely ignored by the Bundan (the literary establishment) and misunderstood for half a century. But in the 1990s, he received unprecedented attention in the Japanese media. The compassion, empathy and closeness to nature expressed in Kenji Miyazawa's poems and tales appealed strongly to a new generation of readers.

Oath of Allegiance is a collection of insightful poetry that protests the treatment of "special" or "gifted" students, those who are often bullied because they are considered different. These protest and meditation poems reject how these innocent and "different" people are treated. The author suffered from bullying growing up, and the effects still haunt him. Author Charles Christie Mulaga says the work of other writers has inspired him, especially when the writing is about extraordinary courage, and the sacrifices made for peace and freedom. He is also motivated by the extraordinary endeavors to alleviate the suffering of humanity through science and technology. He is disheartened by elders who instill prejudice in the minds of children, which can lead to vindictive actions that only slow down our civilization. "As a Christian, I like the idea of forgiveness. When the abuse gets overwhelming, I feel let down, but still more I forgive. The lord will help me," he says. "Putting such experiences in writing is also part of my attempt to heal and share it with the world." About the Author: Charles Christie Mulaga was born the youngest of seven children to two rural school teachers in Northern Malawi. His parents encouraged him to read a lot, which helped develop his writing skills. He is a civil servant and works for the government. This is his first book.
