    John Barrymore was the black sheep of America's most illustrious acting family. Celebrated for his charisma and matinee idol looks, he was for awhile America's most popular actor. Famous for his stage roles in Richard III and Hamlet, he also made more than fifty films. But alcoholism soon dissipated his talents, and he became known more for his Falstaffian behavior and outrageous high jinx than for his art. In Barrymore, William Luce has adapted his acclaimed Broadway hit especially for audio in this stunning production.

    It is not the priest, or the prophet, who does the work of the poet. A poet senses the spiritual action in the physical world, and reveals through poetry those actions. In his book From the Poet's Hand, poet Ed Schetzsle uses the words of the world and delivers a message for the soul. It is this ability that proves the poet, not the volume, popularity, or style of his work, but the audience of his work, the soul of man. Poetry is a spiritual gift with an enduring, enchanting quality. From the Poet's Hand allows the reader an opportunity to return to the world refreshed. Take a trip, somewhere beyond, just inside.

    LibriVox volunteers bring you 12 recordings of A New Arrival by George W. Cable. This was the Fortnightly Poetry project for May 17th, 2010."The New Arrival" is a valuable poem because it expresses the joy of a young father over his new baby. If girls should be educated to be good mothers, so should boys be taught that fatherhood is the highest and holiest joy and right of man. The child is educator to the man. He teaches him how to take responsibility, how to give unbiased judgments, and how to be fatherly like "Our Father who is in Heaven." (1844-.) (introduction to 'A New Arrival' from Poems Every Child Should Know by Mary E. Burt  ed.)
