Written in the Victorian era, these sonnets are renowned for their emotional intensity and tender exploration of love and devotion. Browning's use of intricate language and complex imagery adds a layer of sophistication to the poems, making them a classic example of Victorian poetry. The sonnets follow the traditional Petrarchan form, showcasing Browning's mastery of poetic structure and form.

    Mr. Belasco has written the following account of Peter's" evolution: [ ] The play, "The Return of Peter Grimm," is an expression in dramatic form of my ideas on a subject which I have pondered over since boyhood: "Can the dead come back?" Peter Grimm did come back. At the same time, I inserted a note in my program to say that I advanced no positive opinion; that the treatment of the play allowed the audience to believe that it had actually seen Peter, or that he had not been seen but existed merely in the minds of the characters on the stage. Spiritualists from all over the country flocked to see "The Return of Peter Grimm," and I have heard that it gave comfort to many. It was a difficult theme, and more than once I was tempted to give it up. But since it has given relief to those who have loved and lost, it was not written in vain."

    Much has been written on the Theory of History by philosophers and historiologists, but nothing so concise and readable as Liddell Hart’s Why Don’t We Learn from History; the kind of title that makes one wonder and consider. And consider we certainly should in an era when so much bad history and propaganda is being put before us from unknown sources by unknown authors.

    Behind Enemy Lines is a collection of stories about ordinary people and anti-heroes dragged into a search for meaning in their lives – whether it is a simple search for identity and love, or a bigger struggle for Africa's political freedom. The canvas of their actions, motivations and circumstances is a Zimbabwe of the past, present and future. Humorous, acerbic, funny and tragic, the stories cover the whole gamut of emotions.

    Me, You, Then Snow by Khashayar Mohammadi is a collection of poetry woven from dreams, memories and deep-seeded longing, a collection of poetry that ranges from ambiguously addressed love-letters, to ekphrastic poems for arthouse cinema, to pieces written near midnight when the day’s experiences rush back into view. Though working in diverse forms and styles, the poetry manifests as a profoundly unified desire to experience and communicate the world.
