    William Cowper was born 26th November 1731 in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. Traumatically he and his brother, John, were the only survivors, out of seven, to survive infancy. His mother died when he was six. 
    His education, after several temporary schools, was stabilised at Westminster school. Here he established several life-long friendships and a dedication to Latin. Upon leaving he was articled to a solicitor in London and spent almost a decade training in Law.  In 1763 he was offered a Clerkship of Journals in the House of Lords. With the examinations approaching Cowper had a mental breakdown. He tried to commit suicide three times and a period of depression and insanity seemed to settle on him. The end of this unhappy period saw him find refuge in evangelical Christianity, becoming the inspiration behind his much-loved hymns. 
    This led to a collaboration with John Newton in writing ‘Olney Hymns’. 
    However dark forces were about to overwhelm Cowper. In 1773, he experienced a devastating attack of insanity, believing that he was eternally condemned to hell, and that God was instructing him to make a sacrifice of his own life. With great care and devotion his friend, Mary Unwin, nursed him back to health. 
    In 1781 Cowper had the good fortune to meet a widow, Lady Austen, who inspired a new bout of poetry writing including what some have considered his most substantial work, ‘The Task’. 
    In 1786 he began his translations from the Greek into blank verse of Homer's ‘The Iliad’ and ‘The Odyssey’. These translations, published in 1791, were the most significant since those of Alexander Pope earlier in the century. 
    Mary Unwin died in 1796, plunging Cowper into a gloom from which he never fully recovered though he did continue to write. 
    William Cowper was seized with dropsy and died on 25th April 1800.

    Scotland’s official national day is St Andrew's Day, the feast day of Saint Andrew. 
    In the bible it is Andrew who introduces his brother Peter to Jesus as the Messiah.  As well as Scotland he is also the Patron Saint of the likes of Russia, Greece, the Ukraine, and Barbados. 
    It is thought that the day was first celebrated over a thousand years ago in the reign of Malcolm III (1034–1093). 
    In both Scotland and those many countries with connections to, or who have a sizable Scottish population in these more modern times, it is a welcome display of heritage, culture and the fine traits of Scottish hospitality with food, music and dance. 
    St Andrews Day is also the start of the Scottish winter festivals and thence follow Hogmanay and Burns Night. 
    In this volume we celebrate the very finest of classic Scottish poets. From Burns to Stevenson, from Anderson to Baillie. And celebrate we should.

    The Lux Radio Theatre was radio’s most important dramatic hour, commanding the top Hollywood stars, the biggest budgets, and the best writing, directing and sound effects. Cecil B. DeMille, the long-time host, was often shown in publicity photographs as overseeing every aspect of each broadcast, but the reality is that the show’s real directors - Tony Stanford, Frank Woodruff, Fred MacKaye and Earl Ebi - did all of the heavy lifting from week to week, including keeping the stars’ egos in check and making sure everything went off without a hitch. This collection offers six broadcasts of The Lux Radio Theatre,  just as originally aired over CBS in 1939, transferred directly from C. B. DeMille’s personal recordings and fully restored for outstanding audio fidelity.
