Summary

** Premium Ebook with a beautiful layout **

“He fears nothing. He sees too far, he sees throughout; such is the only man I wish to see or be...Hafiz is a poet for poets.” Emerson.

In Islamic cultures of the Middle East,  a Divan — or a Diwan — is a collection of poems by one author. Hafiz is one of the most celebrated Persian poets. He was acclaimed throughout the Islamic world during his lifetime, and his works are now regarded as a pinnacle of Persian literature. His mystical poetry has been inspirational for poets of all cultures influencing early European Romantics including Schiller and Goethe. Hafiz “is considered by many to be one of the seven literary wonders of the world.

    Beckett meets Betty Boop in this trilogy of monologues by Canadian cult heroine Pochsy, a nasty, vapid, utterly charming vixen. In Pochsy's Lips, she's in the hospital, convinced she's sick because she's got a squid where her heart should be. In Oh Baby, she's at the Last Resort, on holiday from her job packing mercury. And in Citizen Pochsy, our little minx is in the waiting room at an audit from hell. In The Pochsy Plays, Hines remodels and melds traditions like stand-up, absurdism, clowning and neo-cabaret to create some of the most original and cutting satire to hit the stage – and, now, the page. Walk a mile in her distressed calfskin boots as the dark and ditzy Pochsy garbles ad slogans, self-help mantras and desperate grabs at meaning into a postmodern pastiche that is hilarious and harrowing, sweet and bitter at the same time. With extensive photos and musical scores, and an introduction by Darren O'Donnell.

    Our Miss Brooks was a situation comedy show heard on radio and seen on television and films. It starred Hollywood film and New York stage veteran Eve Arden, who had specialized in playing the wisecracking friend to the heroine. She often did it better than anyone else, receiving an Oscar nomination for 1945's Mildred Pierce. Arden's skill with the wicked one-liner and acid aside was beginning to lead to typecasting so, to find a new image, Arden signed on for the lead in radio's Our Miss Brooks. The series centered on Connie Brooks, a smart, sharp-witted, lovable English teacher at fictional Madison High School. Between gentle wisecracks, Miss Brooks doted on nerdish student Walter Denton (Richard Crenna) and frequently locked horns with crusty, cranky Principal Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon). Many plot lines revolved around Miss Brooks' longing for Philip Boynton (Jeff Chandler), the school's bashful biology teacher. Our Miss Brooks made a successful transition to TV in 1952 while the radio series lasted until 1957. Enjoy 12 comedy-filled half-hour episodes in this collection!
