Constructed of Magic and Other Poems on the Immortality of the Human Spirit Hugo House Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What Would Life be Like if You Knew You Were an Immortal Spiritual Being? "It is my viewpoint that each man has his own unique magnificence regardless of race, religion, nation, tribe, station in life, customs and beliefs...," so writes poet, Louis Alan Swartz. Constructed of Magic and Other Poems on the Immortality of the Human Spirit is a refreshing collection of poems that explore the beauty of who we are as spiritual beings. Our ability to love, dream, create futures, even die with dignity are all part of who we are and why we are here. These poems don't pretend to give final answers to any of the big questions about life, but they do help us to look and come to our own understanding. "This book is a testament to the poet's vision-an understanding and appreciation for the spiritual and aesthetic nature of mankind....There is a peaceful calmness that cascades over me when I read the joy that Louis Swartz communicates in these poems. I invite you to share that experience with me." Bernard Percy Educator, Speaker, Author We invite you to discover the magic in these poems that are infused throughout with a terrific appreciation of humankind. As Swartz concludes in his introduction, "If by reading them, one individual is able to get an inkling of the actual length and breadth of his ability to do good, my purpose in writing them will be achieved." Louis Alan Swartz has dedicated his life to helping others find their ability as immortal spiritual beings. He has traveled extensively in Africa, India, Europe, and the Middle East. He lives in Los Angeles with Connie, his wife of twenty-eight years.

Love Dreaming and Other Poems Vagabond Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In "Love dreaming & other poems" Cobby Eckermann bears witness to a deep commitment to her traditional kin, culture and language as she tells the story of her search for her family on the traditional Yankunytjatjara and Kokatha lands in the north west of South Australia. At the same time, she lays bare the ongoing effects of governmental policy and paternalism on Australia's indigenous peoples. Engaging with events around Alice Springs, these poems give firsthand witness to the 2007 Northern Territory Emergency Response by the Federal Government, commonly known as The Intervention, and its ongoing effects on regional and remote Indigenous communities. These poems lay open the complexity of the internal conflict felt among Aboriginal people today, as they constantly need to adjust to contemporary Australia. Cobby Eckermann notes, 'My times in the desert are my happiest, and the soft blanket felt when my traditional language is spoken around me, is a feeling of pure love.' This is a collection by one of Indigenous Australian poetry's most vital new voices, sung with two eyes wide open to the present reality without fear or prejudice, with an overflowing love and care for the future. "These are the offerings of a writer who has journeyed with great determination through apparently irretrievable loss, through chaos, disintegration and desolation, who has harvested the gifts of insight and emotional and spiritual intelligence and compassion, and who now reveals these insights to the eyes and ears of others through lucid images and punchy language." Terry Whitebeach Ali Cobby Eckermann has enjoyed huge success with her first collection of poetry little bit long time (Australian Poetry Centre, 2010) and Kami (Vagabond Press, 2010). Her poetry reflects her journey to reconnect with her Yankunytjatjara / Kokatha family. Her first verse novel His Father's Eyes was published by Oxford University Press in 2011. Her second verse novel Ruby Moonlight won the inaugural kuril dhagun National Manuscript Editing Award and will be published by Magabala Books in 2012. She established an Aboriginal Writers Retreat at her home in Koolunga, and advocates strongly for grassroots Aboriginal voices to be heard through literature. She has lived most of her adult life in Australia's Northern Territory.

Arundel Lyrics. The Poems of Hugh Primas - 2884952408

Arundel Lyrics. The Poems of Hugh Primas Harvard University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This volume presents two complementary medieval anthologies containing lyrics by two outstanding Latin poets of the second half of the twelfth century. The poet Peter of Blois was proclaimed by a contemporary of his to be a master composer of rhythmic verse. Peter's secular love-lyrics gathered in the "Arundel" manuscript give substance to that claim. Written with a technical virtuosity that rivals the metrical display of Horatian lyric, the poems give eloquent and learned expression to the cult of secular love that emerged in the twelfth-century. The collection is further augmented by verse as varied as Christmas poems and satires on the venality of the Roman Curia and immoral bishops, including a famous lament about church corruption by Walther of Chatillon. The cleric Hugh Primas won recognition and fame for compositions in which he reflects upon his experiences, good and bad, while traveling around the cities of northern France (such as the important sees of Rheims and Sens) in search of patronage. Artistic in conception and execution, the poems are memorable for the witty and often acerbic tone with which Primas engages the holders of ecclesiastical power.

You Made Me Late Again! Ebury Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

With over fifty new poems from Britain's favourite poet, You Made Me Late Again! is an essential addition to Pam Ayres' incomparable collection of works. Pam's poems are observant, witty and poignant in equal measure. In 'The Swifts' and 'The Pyracantha Anthem' she marvels at nature, while 'A Patient's Prayer' and 'Litter Moron' offer wry views on Modern Britain. From the dog being afraid of the toaster to your son leaving home for university; and from the search for that perfect swimsuit to becoming a gran for the first time - Pam's poems are beautifully crafted, and her subjects the everyday and the universal. Delightfully illustrated, most of the poems in You Made Me Late Again! are brand new, yet it also features several firm favourites from her stage shows, published for the first time, such as 'The Make-up Lady' and 'Tippy Tappy Feet'.

Happiness Faber & Faber

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Happiness is the long-anticipated debut collection from the award-winning Jack Underwood. With the sort of smart, persuasive voice associated with Simon Armitage and Michael Donaghy, these poems worry at the world in search of consolation, or else meet life's absurdity and strangeness half-way; whether sitting proudly atop an unexploded bomb, or injecting blood under the skin of a banana, playfulness and imagination are vehicles for confronting 'the fearful and forgotten things I've lied to myself about'. Here are poems which address anxiety about fatherhood, remorse for lost lovers and friends, or mourn for a miscarried sibling. Happiness is a collection preoccupied with the ephemerality of happiness itself, at the ever-present possibility of its departure, and the ways we try to grasp and keep hold of it. 'Every single thought I'm having is about LOVE', here meaning both the pleasure and panic of love, its peculiarity; love as a feeling of risk, love for one's own body, familiar yet estranged, of 'cack-handed LOVE at his console', love like 'pausing to move a snail somewhere safer in the rain'.

John Fuller - Ghosts Vintage Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Like the possible phantoms that stalk the dark passageways of its title poem, John Fuller's beautifully lucid collection explores the grey area between life and death. Full of self-deprecating wit and subtle insight, the poems contemplate the inevitability that, when one reaches a certain age, the moment of one's own passing will start to haunt one. In 'Flea Market' there is the pathos of once-loved objects laid out, meaningless, 'on the cobbles for scavengers'. In 'Positions in the Bed', the restless search for a comfortable way to sleep leads to thoughts of the morning when 'we find/ Ourselves absconded from the body's/ Weary roll-call'. And yet, out of this sense of mortality, grows a determination to take delight in the moment, to appreciate fully 'the business of living'. These poems are not only intimate, domestic and often funny, they are uncompromising in the way they confront the huge and unanswerable questions of life. The movement of thought is rendered beautifully concrete in the intricate music of their langauge, and melancholy co-exists with a lightness of touch that builds a moving and humane barricade against 'life's brevity/ And it's insignificance'. Shortlisted for the Whitbread Award for Poetry.

The River Dream - 2862153726

The River Dream Resource Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The River Dream is a collection of original proverbs that looks to continue that classic form in its search for wisdom and spirituality. Each proverb has a corresponding photo that adds meaning and substance in the same way music adds to a lyric to create a song. Breaking through the confinements of religion, these songs express a unique spiritual outlook in a simple poetic form. Many themes such as love, faith, vision, and death are explored, with imagery that was inspired by the natural beauty of the southern Pennsylvania countryside where this book was written. ""Proverbs are the DNA of poetry: condensed, figurative, morally aware, sharp with wit and the truth that surprises and persuades. At their best, as in The River Dream, by Laurence David, they seem like insights we have always possessed but somehow mislaid. They are complemented here by artful photographs that enlarge and enrich the reader's experience. The fortunate traveler who takes this river cruise will pass through a varied landscape over waters both deep and clear."" --Michael D. Riley, Author, Ordinary Time: Poems for the Liturgical Year Laurence David lives in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, with his wife Cathy, who assisted with this book by providing most of the photos. They live next to a nature preserve of the Lancaster County Conservancy, where most of the images in the book are located. Laurence is the author of The Window Song (2000) and The River Prayer (2006), and is currently working on a new collection of proverbs that is a companion piece to The River Dream.

Kim Kardashian's Marriage Faber & Faber

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Sam Riviere's debut, 81 Austerities, began as blog responding to the spending cuts, and went on to win the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. A sequel of sorts, the 72 poems in Kim Kardashian's Marriage mark out equally sharpened lines of public and private engagement. Kim Kardashian's 2011 marriage lasted for 72 days, and was seen by some as illustrative of celebrity life as spectacle. Riviere has used it as a point of ignition, deploying terms from Kardashian's make-up regime to explore surfaces and self-consciousness, presentation and obfuscation. As with 81 Austerities, the process of enquiry involves the composition method itself, this time in poems that have been produced by harvesting and manipulating the results of search engines to create a poetry of part-collage, part-improvisation. The effect is as refractive as it is reflective, and disturbs the slant on biography until we are left with a pixellation of the first person.

Hymns to the Beloved Balboa Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Hymns to the Beloved is a collection of poems about the yearning for mystical love - the lover's search for the most intimate expression of love. Often love is not what we expect it to be, and the road to discovering real love can be arduous. Many seek it, look for it and desire it, yet who is prepared to pay the price of such love? Few have the stamina of soul to withstand the bonfire of love. Yet no matter who we are, we all must embark on the journey love takes us on. It is impossible to escape because love's call is one of the most powerful drawing forces in the universe. This book is about believing in love again. It is about knowing that a love so sacred does in fact exist and it can propel us into becoming who we are and to brave our humanity. The poems can serve as a reminder that there is no greater purpose in life than love and there is no greater blessing in life than to be loved. In this giving and receiving we enter the realm of the divine.
