    Be is a collection of poems that delve into the intimate feelings of a young woman who didn’t see light at the end of the tunnel yet felt the light in her heart growing up in a dysfunctional family and community. The poems are raw. They describe a myriad of internal and external struggles the author endured that helped to shape the woman she is today. The poems speak of survival and success as the reader is encouraged to thrive in the face of adversity. The reader experiences the author’s vulnerabilities and the depths of her feelings as her sentiment unfolds on the pages—"There is light at the end of the tunnel, even if I can’t see it.” Be is a work of trials and triumphs. “Be” inspired.

    What happens when a mix of lovers get stuck together on a coast-to-coast train? Mainly hilarity. There is every kind of couple imaginable. One serviceman and his bride-to-be are trying desperately to get married but can't find a clergyman to perform the rites. They don't know that right in their midst is a preacher disguised as a man of the world so he and his wife can enjoy a carefree vacation. Then there is a drunk mourning his separation from the wife who just happens to be on the same train. There is even a confirmed bachelor who discovers that a confirmed spinster is his long-lost love from years ago. How these lives intertwine makes up the plot of this rollicking comedy. The piece contains racial slurs, which, although acceptable in the time and place of the story's setting, may offend modern listeners.

    Alexander Pope’s beautiful verse translation of the Ancient Greek epic of the Trojan War. One of the oldest surviving works in Western literature, Homer’s epic poem has captivated readers for millennia. Set at the end of the Greeks’ decade-long siege of Troy, it centers on a quarrel between the Greek King Agamemnon and his greatest asset in battle, the warrior Achilles. From this conflict between two great men, The Iliad weaves a tale of warring nations, vengeful gods, plagues, betrayals, and the terrible consequences of prideful rage.  This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices. “Many consider [Pope’s translation] the greatest English Iliad. . . . It manages to convey not only the stateliness and grandeur of Homer’s lines, but their speed and wit and vividness.” —The New Yorker   “Pope worked miracles. . . ,This is a poem you can live your way into, over the years, since it yields more at every encounter.” —TheNew York Times

    "If-" is a timeless classic, a masterpiece about keeping your balance in a topsy-turvy world and maintaining personal integrity. A phenomenal poem by English Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), written circa 1895 as a tribute to Leander Starr Jameson, it is a literary example of Victorian-era stoicism. Among other nuggets, it advocates the idea of not allowing your successes to go to your head or allowing your failures to go to your heart. A great stabilizer for everyone. It contains truly sage advice needed now more than ever! The poem is written in the form of paternal advice to the poet's son, John. A succinct yet tremendously potent body of work. A must-have for every library.

    An explosive, topical drama from one of the UK's top political playwrights.
    It's 16th April 2010, the day after the UK's first ever televised prime ministerial debate. Stranded in Malaga Airport by a volcanic ash-cloud, a Labour special adviser, a Lib Dem staffer and a Tory candidate consider their options. Can their parties survive without them? How will they get back home? And who'll end up in government?
    Fast forward to 4th August 2014. As the nation settles down to commemorate the outbreak of the First World War, the three politicians meet again. One of them knows something that could change the outcome of the 2015 election. Should they reveal it? And at what cost?
