Summary

The poems in this collection are best read with a glass of single malt but they work equally well in a quiet place at twilight. Test on a small area first – especially if you are in possession of a broken (or breaking) heart and see your bartender immediately if side effects persist.

    By “             assembling”              some of the most fascinating figures in world history, Meeting of Minds provided a groundbreaking opportunity for audiences to be exposed to ideas by way of a medium not normally known for its intellectual vigor. Portrayed by actors, panelists engage in stimulating round-table discussions that were conducted like any other talk show but featured prominent influencers from bygone generations—             not just philosophers and politicians, but poets, playwrights, and presidents. From activists and artists to international leaders—             both famous and infamous—             these conversations are unfailingly witty, thought-provoking, and genuinely entertaining. An innovative series, Meeting of Minds remains one of the most delightful ways of gaining historical perspective ever devised, and these original soundtrack recordings capture the intellectual and spirited debates of the episodes hosted by Steve Allen. This installment breaks the pattern of other episodes by featuring playwright William Shakespeare surrounded not by other illustrious historical figures, but with the fruits of his own imagination. Following a brief discussion of his early life, Shakespeare is joined by the Dark Lady of the Sonnets, Hamlet, Romeo, Othello, and the Ghost of Hamlet's Father. Expounding on the theme of love, the most enigmatic and compelling of Shakespeare's characters challenge each other and their mutual creator to resolve long-standing controversies about their identities and inner conflicts.

    Tragical History of Doctor...

    The Tragicall History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus, commonly referred to simply as Doctor Faustus, is a play by Christopher Marlowe, based on the Faust story, in which a man sells his soul to the devil for power and knowledge. Doctor Faustus was first published in 1604, eleven years after Marlowe's death and at least twelve years after the first performance of the play. "No Elizabethan play outside the Shakespeare canon has raised more controversy than Doctor Faustus. There is no agreement concerning the nature of the text and the date of composition... and the centrality of the Faust legend in the history of the Western world precludes any definitive agreement on the interpretation of the play. This recording uses the 1616 quarto, published by John Wright, which contains significant alterations from and additions to the quarto of 1604. The text of the first quarto was used for a previous Librivox recording. (Summary by Wikidpedia and Algy Pug)

This was the Weekly Poetry project for March 21st, 2010.,The 21st of March is the ancient Persian festival of Naw-Rúz, also spelled "Noruz" (New Day) which is the Iranian and Zoroastrian New Year's Day. Naw-Rúz is also a Bahá'í holy day and the Baha'i New Year.Louise R. Waite (nee Spencer) was a Bahá'í poet and song writer. She wrote this poem, entitled “New Year Greeting”, for Naw-Rúz, which appeared in the Bahai Bulletin, Vol. 1. January-February-March, 1909, No. 5. According to an article which appeared in the same issue of the Bahai Bulletin: “Each Prophet or Manifestation of God, when he comes to the world, founds a new dispensation, a new time, for his followers…. To-day those who believe in Baha’u’llah, are establishing the Bahai time. It establishes a new method of reckoning… The New Year begins on the twenty-first of March, in accord with the teachings of our Revelator…”Referring to one of Waite’s poems in 1902, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá wrote: “All poems shall be forgotten in the course of time save those that are extraordinary. Thy poems shall be chanted with melody and best voices in the center of Worship (Mashriqu'l-Adhkár) forevermore.” In one Tablet, He referred to her as “Thou bird of pleasing tones” and in another as “Thou eloquent and expressive poetess”. On the 15th of April 1902, she married Edgar F. Waite. In 1910, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá gave her the spiritual name of Shahnáz Khánum (Lady Shahnáz). Shahnáz passed away in her sleep on the 27th of May 1939.
