Summary

From Misha Collins, actor, longtime poet, and activist, whose massive online following calls itself his “Army For Good," comes his debut poetry collection, Some Things I Still Can't Tell You. Trademark wit and subtle vulnerability converge in each poem; this book is both a celebration of and aspiration for a life well lived.This book is a compilation of small observations and musings. It's filled with moments of reflection and a love letter to simple joys: passing a simple blade of grass on the sidewalk, the freedom of peeing outdoors late at night, or the way a hand-built ceramic mug feels when it's full of warm tea on a chilly morning. It's a catalog and a compendium that examines the complicated experience of being all too human and interacting with a complex, confounding, breathtaking world ... and a reminder to stop and be awake and alive in yourself.

    Westminster Memorials, Volume 1 – An introduction. Westminster Abbey has seen much during its long, rich history; the coronations of Kings and Queens, the burials of Prime ministers. However it is also a church that remembers the men and women of the arts.  Dedicated writers and poets who spoke so eloquently that the Nation wished to remember them with plaques upon its walls so that all who travelled here could remember too.  Their works are worth remembering and here, in these volumes, their wise words speak too and for us all.  In Volume 1 we collect together Matthew Arnold to Lewis Carroll.

    First published in 1914, the King of Alsander is the only novel by James Elroy Flecker, best known as a poet, but also a noted scholar, linguist and diplomat.   Flecker's love of learning, language and travel, and his keen satirical insight into politics are all in evidence in this phantasmagoric tale.  As the author himself describes it:  Here is a tale all romance - a tale such as only a Poet can write for you, O appreciative and generous Public - a tale of madmen, kings, scholars, grocers, consuls, and Jews: a tale with two heroines, both of an extreme and indescribable beauty: a tale of the South and of sunshine, wherein will be found disguises, mysteries, conspiracies, fights, at least one good whipping, and plenty of blood and love and absurdity: a very old sort of tale: a tale as joyously improbable as life itself. - Summary by Algy PugCast list:Norman Price: Phil BensonJohn Oggs: Phil BensonLabourer: Phil BensonMrs Gaffekin: Michele EatonNancy: Michele EatonPeronella: Michele EatonMalsprita: Michele EatonGuard: Michele EatonCrowd: Michele EatonVicar: Patrick WallaceOld Man: Patrick WallaceWilliam Price: Patrick WallaceCanthrop: Patrick WallaceCesano: Patrick WallaceWizened Man: Patrick WallaceConsul: Patrick WallaceVorza: Patrick WallaceColonel: Patrick WallaceVicar’s Daughter: Eden Rea-HedrickWidow Prasko: Eden Rea-HedrickShopkeeper: Eden Rea-HedrickPresident: Eden Rea-HedrickArnolfo: Eden Rea-HedrickIanthe: Eden Rea-HedrickDrakina: Eden Rea-HedrickCuvas: Eden Rea-HedrickPeter Smith: Eden Rea-HedrickLady: Eden Rea-HedrickJohn Gaffekin: Alan WeymanKing: Alan WeymanButler: Alan WeymanDoctor: Alan WeymanClerk: Alan WeymanMakzelo: Alan WeymanFather Algio: Alan WeymanCaptain of the Guard: Alan Weyma

    Having been publicly acknowledged as God's "beloved Son," Jesus retires to the desert to meditate upon what it means to be the Messiah, about whose coming many conflicting opinions have been circulating among the Jews. Although a learned rabbi, Jesus possesses no knowledge beyond what is available to all human beings. Satan also takes a new interest in this favored "son of God" and seeks to learn what threat he constitutes. The poem consists of a debate between these two adversaries, each seeking the same understanding of precisely what mankind's Savior will do in a world where the way to success typically lies through "wealth . . . honour . . . arms . . . arts . . . Kingdom . . . Empire . . . life contemplative, / Or active, tended on by glory, or fame." By withstanding Satan's temptation to all such worldly paths, Jesus proves himself to be a perfect, unfallen man and consequently worthy to win back paradise for mankind. Repeatedly invited to take action—either to secure his kingdom or to prove himself deserving of the divine favor that has been shown him or simply to save his life—he resists, patiently suffering, withstanding, waiting. Yet he learns from his temptation, clarifying in his own mind what his mission on earth must be and the means to achieve it. For although Satan knows no more of his mission than he does himself, Satan points the way by offering the wrong goals or the wrong motives or the wrong means. Thus the Father of Lies against his will opens the way to salvation for human kind. (Summary by Thomas Copeland)

    St Georges Day - A Holiday in Verse

    The United States has July 4th, Ireland St Patrick’s Day and France Bastille Day. 
    Most Nations celebrate a particular day as ‘theirs’. That day is when they turn to themselves; to reflect on the past, to revel in the present and to look forward to the future. 
    For England 23rd April is St George’s Day. 
    St George, a hero from bygone days, who slays Dragons and pursues other mythic deeds, is part of childhood.  But for modern times, for modern Nations, a greater purpose is needed. 
    For England St George is best now described as a principle.  A small Nation grown large and respected for its brainpower, brawn and ingenuity and fighting for beliefs, misguidedly or not, that others can’t or won’t. 
    Of course England’s role has changed many times over the centuries but perhaps its basic tenets and desires haven’t.  Fair Play. A role for everyone on equal terms. Democracy.  Tolerance. A safe haven for those oppressed.  England ‘expects’ and sometimes succeeds.
