    The sun has descended below the far horizon.  The inky blackness of night begins to envelop the land.  Day has gone and the nocturnal times reveal themselves.  But above the dark blanket the moon, whether waxing or waning, stands sentry and around it vast clouds and swirls of stars regiment themselves.  We look up in awe and wonder, frail beneath their vista. 
    Our gloried poets are on hand though to capture word and deed, emotion and feeling, friend and foe.  Among our ranks of astounding talents are Keats, Byron, Wordsworth, Hardy, Poe, Shelley, Longfellow and many more beside.  Their descriptions capture what they see and feel and describe as perhaps only a poet can. 
     This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing.  Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.

    Ars Poetica and Carmen Saeculare

    The Ars Poetica, by Horace, also known as Epistula ad Pisones, is a treatise on poetry written in the form of a letter, and published around 18 B.C. In it, Horace defines and exemplifies the nature, scope and correct way of writing poetry. This work, inspired by the book of the same name by Aristotle, is one of the most influential in Latin literature, and the source of famous concepts in poetics, such as "in medias res" and "ut pictura poesis". The text itself is a poem in 476 dactilic hexameters. 
    The Carmen Saeculare, or "Song of the Ages", is a hymn written by Horace in 17 b.C. for the Ludi saeculares of the same year. It is believed that the poem was commissioned by the Emperor Augustus and sung by a choir of young men and women during the opening ceremony of the Games of the Century, a religious celebration that happened in Rome once every saeculum (century). The saeculum was considered to be the maximum length of a human life, which means the Games happened once every generation. The poem was written is nineteen sapphic stanzas, and in an elevated and religious tone. (Summary by Leni)

    Aemilia Lanyer's 1611 poem is far more than a retelling of The Passion.  It comprises a spirited defense of Eve (and, by extension, all women), elegant praises for her female patrons, a catalogue of virtuous women of the ancient world, and closes with the first "country house" poem written by a woman in English. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

    Poetry Hour The - Volume 14

    Poetry is often cited as our greatest use of words.  The English language has well over a million of them and poets down the ages seem, at times, to make use of every single one.  But often they use them in simple ways to describe anything and everything from landscapes to all aspects of the human condition.  Poems can evoke within us an individual response that takes us by surprise; that opens our ears and eyes to very personal feelings. 
     
    Forget the idea of classic poetry being somehow dull and boring and best kept to children’s textbooks. It still has life, vibrancy and relevance to our lives today.  
     
    Where to start? How to do that? Poetry can be difficult. We’ve put together some very eclectic Poetry Hours, with a broad range of poets and themes, to entice you and seduce you with all manner of temptations.   
     
    In this hour we introduce poets of the quality and breadth of John Donne and Jane Austen as well as themes on November, The Female Poet, Westminster Memorials and more. 
     
    All of them are from Portable Poetry, a dedicated poetry publisher. We believe that poetry should be a part of our everyday lives, uplifting the soul & reaching the parts that other arts can’t.  Our range of audiobooks and ebooks cover volumes on some of our greatest poets to anthologies of seasons, months, places and a wide range of themes.  Portable Poetry can found at iTunes, Audible, the digital music section on Amazon and most other digital stores.  
     
    This audio book is also duplicated in print as an ebook. Same title. Same words. Perhaps a different experience. But with Amazon’s whispersync you can pick up and put down on any device – start on audio, continue in print and any which way after that.   
     
    Portable poetry – Let us join you for the journey.
