Summary

This poetry collection is the second poetry book written by Beverley Joughin-Robson. There are a variety of poems to suit all tastes and ages. Some poems were written when sitting quietly in idyllic settings, others were written during more passionate or sentimental moments. Some are childish rhymes inspired by children and grandchildren. The last section reflects on the strange and emotive period of time, when we were all affected by the Covid-19 pandemic; Light-hearted comments and poignant reflections, interspersed with emotional and anxious moments. The rhythms, rhyme patterns, language and structure are selected and adapted to suit the various ideas, themes and emotions captured, including sonnets, the writer’s favourite form.
Although many of the poems are very personal, the intention is to appeal to everyone. The compilation was not intended to be just a collection of poems from the poet’s life experiences, but to incorporate poems which engage with others. Reading these poems should be like looking back over old photographs, taking you back to moments in life and arousing forgotten memories.

    The Romantics – Volume 2 - An Introduction. Romanticism was a new movement in philosophy and the arts that began in the late 18th century when major political events shook the world such as the French Revolution and American Independence. It marked a distinct contrast to the prevailing Enlightenment ideals and in poetry represented a more personal intuitive, emotional and meditative expression with a back to nature imperative.  It subsequently altered the way in which we perceive poetry and beyond as well as defining our own modern sensibilities to the arts.   The Romantic poets who were central to this movement are traditionally characterised as the Big Six, namely Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley and Byron.  However, as these volumes show,  there are women poets who are often overlooked and these include Mary Shelley, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Joanna Baillie and Charlotte Smith. Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.  In this volume we collect together WS Landor to William Wordswoth.

    The Poetry Of Thomas Hardy – An Introduction. Many giants of Literature originate from the shores of these emerald isles;  Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer, The Brontes and Austen to which most people would willingly add the name Thomas Hardy.   Far From The Madding Crowd, Tess Of The D’Urbervilles, The Mayor Of Casterbridge are but three of his literary masterpieces.  But let us go further and add to his canon his Poems.  Hardy himself thought he was a poet who wrote novels purely for the money. Indeed his poems were not published until he was in his fifties after his major novels were published and his reputation set.   Today his poetry is more rightly regarded in its own right.  These poems are ready for you by James Taylor, Gideon Wagner, Richard Mitchley, Tim Graham and Ghizela Rowe.

    The Rape of the Lock

    The Rape of the Lock is a mock-heroic narrative poem written by Alexander Pope, first published anonymously in Lintot's Miscellany in May 1712 in two cantos (334 lines), but then revised, expanded and reissued under Pope's name on March 2, 1714, in a much-expanded 5-canto version (794 lines). The final form was available in 1717 with the addition of Clarissa's speech on good humour. The poem satirizes a petty squabble by comparing it to the epic world of the gods. It was based on an incident recounted by Pope's friend, John Caryll. Arabella Fermor and her suitor, Lord Petre, were both from aristocratic recusant Catholic families at a period in England when under such laws as the Test Act, all denominations except Anglicanism suffered legal restrictions and penalties (for example Petre could not take up his place in the House of Lords as a Catholic). Petre, lusting after Arabella, had cut off a lock of her hair without permission, and the consequent argument had created a breach between the two families. Pope, also a Catholic, wrote the poem at the request of friends in an attempt to "comically merge the two." He utilized the character Belinda to represent Arabella and introduced an entire system of "sylphs," or guardian spirits of virgins, a parodied version of the gods and goddesses of conventional epic.
