Summary

This is How the Change Begins is a collection of six illuminating poems inspired by the growing threat of climate change. From a consideration of our carbon footprints by way of Islamic mathematician Alhazen, the impact shifting weather conditions are having and will continue to have on our events and celebrations and the choices we have to make to turn the tide, these remarkable poems brilliantly confront the recognisable realities of the climate crisis with bold and lyrical language. Including background notes on the themes behind them, each poem has been typographically designed and arranged to best communicate these essential messages.

    Caesar and Cleopatra, a play written in 1898 by George Bernard Shaw, was first staged in 1901 and first published with Captain Brassbound's Conversion and The Devil's Disciple in his 1901 collection, Three Plays for Puritans. It was first performed at Newcastle upon Tyne on March 15, 1899. London production was at the Savoy Theatre in 1907. Shaw wants to prove that it was not love but politics that drew Cleopatra to Julius Caesar. He sees the Roman occupation of ancient Egypt as similar to the British occupation that was occurring during his time. Caesar understands the importance of good government, and values these things above art and love.

    Bold - Her Liberation

    Forget about societal expectations of a woman for a moment where “women should be submissive.” Women who embrace their sexuality can be viewed as “fast or immoral.” Depending on your culture, women should not have an opinion about sex, and there is that unspoken requirement about being a virgin but still having experience. Women should have the right curves, but not too curvy, maybe skinny. Women should act, talk and look a certain way that is often defined by one’s culture: what was heard and seen. It is impossible and unrealistic to live up to the expectations of society. The pressure created for women in today’s society can be so daunting and overwhelming. 
     Unfortunately, or maybe not, in this gripping book of poetry, Toya did not sugar-coat her feelings to fit into the invisible box that society created for women. Toya defied all odds when she rose above her depression and physical pain, like the mythical phoenix bird. Even her very close encounter with mortality in 1996 did not prepare Toya for the dramatic sequence of events that she experienced after her injury on February 22, 2017.   
    Although Toya was surrounded by her doting family, she felt all alone. Her family suspected that she suffered emotional pain and tried their best to support her, but this was not enough. Toya wore her mask well as her need for companionship and sexual intimacy amplified. She struggled with her emotional rollercoaster ride as well as her embarrassment for her lustful desires. Perplexed and flabbergasted, Toya wrestled with this dangerous concoction of depression and sensual desires.   
    Toya resorted to writing and found escape in the underworld of her fantasy land. Toya’s excursion empowered and led her to the ultimate freedom that she sought.

    Patrick Woodcock's eighth book of poetry is the first written in one geographical location, the Kurdish North of Iraq. Woodcock lived in three cities over two years where he worked as a teacher and lecturer while traveling extensively throughout the region collecting material for this book. Mixed with poems both serious and humorous, long and short, this is the work of a poet who cannot live or create without uprooting himself to our world's most misunderstood and misrepresented regions.

    Nothing slips by Brecken Hancock’s deft ear as she seductively plumbs the depths of the evolution of bathing, doppelgängers, the Kraken and the minutiae of family with all its tragic misgivings. The poems in Broom Broom pervert the rational, safe parts of the world to extoll and absorb the sweep of human history.
