    Over the far horizon the blanket of night begins to slowly dissolve.  The sun is once more on its daily journey across the heavens.  The light begins to sharpen and increase in intensity revealing the landscape.  Morning has begun and dazed heads and sleepy faces come to terms with the new day. 
    Our poets capture the mood, the emotions and all manner of other details in their descriptions of this time.  But then with the calibre of wordsmiths such as Tennyson, Wordsworth, Milton, Southey, Donne and many more besides we are almost spoilt. 
     This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing.  Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.

    The Gunsmoke theme is considered by many to be one of the most renowned pieces of music of classic radio themes. Rex Koury was hired to provide the music for the program, and while having experience on a variety of radio shows, Koury had never composed for a western before. As a matter of practice, Koury wrote the music for the show itself first, openers and bridges and the like, then he would write the theme, tying it all together. According to Koury, he wrote the Gunsmoke theme the morning of the show’s first broadcast, after oversleeping, in ten minutes. 
    One of the keys to the success of Gunsmoke most definitely was character development. With a concept built around basically four key cast members and a continual flow of other characters in and out each week, Gunsmoke endeared itself to its audience by allowing that core cast to grow over the years. Although originally conceived to be a ‘Philip Marlowe of the West,” Matt Dillon grew less hard-boiled and more compassionate and understanding. Portrayed early on much like a buzzard waiting for people to die, Doc Adams also evolved, maturing into a man dedicated to his work.

    Helen Maria Hunt Jackson, born Helen Fiske was an American poet and writer who became an activist on behalf of improved treatment of Native Americans by the U.S. government. She described the adverse effects of government actions in her history A Century of Dishonor (1881). Her novel Ramona* (1884) dramatized the federal government's mistreatment of Native Americans in Southern California after the Mexican–American War and attracted considerable attention to her cause. Commercially popular, it was estimated to have been reprinted 300 times and most readers liked its romantic and picturesque qualities rather than its political content. The novel was so popular that it attracted many tourists to Southern California who wanted to see places from the book. (Wikipedia) * LibriVox has two versions of Ramona in the catalog.

    Macbeth is a play written by William Shakespeare. It is considered one of his darkest and most powerful tragedies. Set in Scotland, the play dramatizes the corroding psychological and political effects produced when its protagonist, the Scottish lord Macbeth, chooses evil as the way to fulfill his ambition for power. He commits regicide to become king and then furthers his moral descent with a reign of murderous terror to stay in power, eventually plunging the country into civil war. In the end, he loses everything that gives meaning and purpose to his life before losing his life itself.

    Chamber Music

    Chamber Music is a collection of poems by James Joyce, first published in May of 1907. The collection originally comprised thirty-four love poems, but two further poems were added before publication ("All day I hear the noise of waters" and "I hear an army charging upon the land"). 
    Although the poems did not sell well, they received some critical acclaim. Ezra Pound admired the "delicate temperament" of these early poems, while Yeats described "I hear an army charging upon the land" as "a technical and emotional masterpiece". In 1909, Joyce wrote to his wife, "When I wrote [Chamber Music], I was a lonely boy, walking about by myself at night and thinking that one day a girl would love me."

    Eureka is Poe's attempt at explaining the universe, using his general proposition "Because Nothing was, therefore All Things are". In it, Poe discusses man's relationship to God and the universe or, as he offers at the beginning: "I design to speak of the Physical, Metaphysical and Mathematical—of the Material and Spiritual Universe: of its Essence, its Origin, its Creation, its Present Condition and its Destiny". In keeping with this design, Poe concludes "that space and duration are one" and that matter and spirit are made of the same essence.
