Summary

Contains all of John Tyndall’s extant poetry published for the first time, including new analysis of Tyndall’s most famous poem, ‘A Morning on Alp Lusgen’.
  
 
 
The introductory essay synthesises the perspectives of three authors from
different disciplines (nineteenth-century literature, poetry, and the
history of science) to offer fresh insights into the relationships between literature and scientific
  communication in the nineteenth century.
  
 
 
Deepens our biographical understanding of Tyndall’s character, development and
impact, and reveals the ways in which he used poetry and poetic language to
communicate his wider metaphysical beliefs.

    Robin Morgan’s second collection of poems is a rich tapestry of female experience, both literal and mythic Daughter, wife, mother, lover, artist, and even priestess are all here in shorter lyrics that cluster around four subjects: blood ties, activism and art, love between women, and archetypes. But Morgan surpasses the political grief and rage she delineated in Monster, her acclaimed first book of poems—especially in the four major metaphysical poems here: “The City of God,” balancing grace and despair; “Easter Island,” on the ironies of transcendence in embattled love; “The Network of the Imaginary Mother,” which became a virtual anthem of the women’s movement; and “Voices from Six Tapestries,” inspired by the famous Lady and theUnicorn weavings that hang in the Musée de Cluny in Paris.   Themes of familial love and hurt, mortality, survival, and transformation inform the poems collected here as the author weaves a wise and powerful self into being. Lady of the Beasts is Robin Morgan at her most lyrical yet.

    Although Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is known mainly for his tales of the macabre and the supernatural and is an acknowledged master of these genres, he thought of himself primarily as a poet. Here is a collection of over thirty of his poems including two of the best known "The Raven" and “Annabel Lee”.Public Domain (P)2016 Spiders' House Audio/Roy Macready
