    Rudyard Kipling was one of the most versatile writers of the Victorian age  a journalist, storyteller, historian and poet. One of the major subjects of his poetry was the British army and the way it waged its campaigns during Queen Victorias little wars, and it is this aspect of his writing that Edward Erickson explores in this absorbing and perceptive study.Kiplings military poems offer insights into the profession of arms and how soldiers were trained and fought in distant expeditionary campaigns  they bring to life the world of the Victorian soldier in the most evocative way. Although not a soldier himself, Kipling wrote about timeless themes of military and wartime service, the experience of combat, unit cohesion and individual courage.A Soldiers Kipling is an original contribution to the understanding of Kiplings work and his times, and it should lead to a fresh appreciation of a facet of his writing that has not been focused on so closely before.

    A collection of poems about returning home by the war veteran and Pulitzer Prize finalist who is “one of the most important poets of our time” (Carolyn Forché, Guggenheim Fellow, on Archeology of the Circle).  The Unraveling Strangeness represents the record of a man in the middle of his life who comes back to his home after being away for twenty-five years. In these poems, we find odes to a disappearing New York City neighborhood and meditations on how national turmoil seeps into everyday consciousness. At stake in this journey is a rediscovery of deep and abiding connections to place, to family, and old friends.   A two-time Pushcart Prize–winner, Bruce Weigl’s collection The Abundance of Nothing was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His poetry has been acclaimed by C. K. Williams as “powerful and frightening, poems [that] force us to repudiate our comfortable uncertainties, our drowsy vagueness.”

    This drama about LBJ’s 1960s War on Poverty “shines a bright, clear light on a pivotal moment in American history” (Charles Isherwood, The New York Times). The tumultuous beginning of Lyndon Johnson’s presidency that Robert Schenkkan presented in the multiple Tony-winning All the Way continues in part two, The Great Society, which had its world premiere at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in July 2014, directed by Bill Rauch and starring Jack Willis. In the years from 1965 to 1968, President Lyndon Johnson struggles to fight a “war on poverty” even as his war in Vietnam spins out of control. Besieged by political opponents, Johnson marshals all his political wiles to try to pass some of the most important social programs in U.S. history, while the country descends into chaos over the war and backlash against civil rights. In the tradition of the great multi-part Shakespearian historical plays, The Great Society is an unflinching examination of the morality of power. “A taut political thriller…Schenkkan’s writing shines…a vital study for all those who wish to learn from the past in order to gain some idea of what we might do in the present.”?Austin American-Statesman

    In Shakespeare plays the tragic and the comic often fade into each other turning into harmonious blending of these two elements. Shakespeare takes a special delight in employment of such harmonies. His tragedies never fail of having their comic interludes and his comedies often have a serious undertone. Still, the comic is not the tragic, and in this collection we offer some of the more humorous and witty tales from Shakespeare. The following Shakespeare adaptations are included here: 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', 'As You Like It', 'Measure for Measure'. Read in English, unabridged.

    The Poetry Of Thomas Hardy – An Introduction. Many giants of Literature originate from the shores of these emerald isles;  Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer, The Brontes and Austen to which most people would willingly add the name Thomas Hardy.   Far From The Madding Crowd, Tess Of The D’Urbervilles, The Mayor Of Casterbridge are but three of his literary masterpieces.  But let us go further and add to his canon his Poems.  Hardy himself thought he was a poet who wrote novels purely for the money. Indeed his poems were not published until he was in his fifties after his major novels were published and his reputation set.   Today his poetry is more rightly regarded in its own right.  These poems are ready for you by James Taylor, Gideon Wagner, Richard Mitchley, Tim Graham and Ghizela Rowe.
