    Volume 4 of the Claudia series! Though most daytime soap operas emphasized struggle and strife, “Claudia,” based on the stories by Rose Franken, told the tale of Claudia and David Naughton, newlyweds, just beginning their married life. Young and very much in love, they simply faced the challenges of any new marriage - finding an apartment, getting used to each other’s quirks, and learning to live together. Unlike other popular soaps, “Claudia” didn’t offer daily doses of anguish and heartbreak. Instead, people tuned in for the interesting, fully developed characters, the light-hearted banter between them, and the familiarity of their day-to-day situations. Available now the first time in sixty years, “Claudia” remains wonderful entertainment, notable for the believable interplay between its characters.

    Edward Thomas: from Adlestrop to...

    Along with Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas is by any reckoning a major first world war poet. A war poet is not one who chooses to commemorate or celebrate a war, but one who reacts against having a war thrust upon him. His great friend Robert Frost wrote 'his poetry is so very brave, so unconsciously brave.'  
     
    Apart from a most illuminating understanding of his poetry, Dr Wilson shows how Thomas' life alone makes for absorbing reading: his early marriage, his dependence on laudanum, his friendships with Joseph Conrad, Edward Garnett, Rupert Brooke and Hilaire Belloc among others. The novelist Eleanor Farjeon entered into a curious menage a trois with him and his wife. He died in France in 1917, on the first day of the Battle of Arras. This is the stuff of which myths are made and posterity has been quick to oblige. But this has tended to obscure his true worth as a writer, as Dr Wilson argues. 
     
    Edward Thomas's poems were not published until some months after his death, but they have never since been out of print. Described by Ted Hughes as 'the father of us all', Thomas's distinctively modern sensibility is probably the one most in tune with our twenty-first century outlook. He occupies a crucial place in the development of twentieth century poetry. This is the extraordinary life of a poetic genius.

    The People Yes

    Carl Sandburg

    The acclaimed epic prose-poem from one of America’s greatest poets and the three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize.  
     
    A long poem that makes brilliant use of the legends and myths, the tall tales and sayings of America. As Irish poet Padraic Colum said, “The fine thing about The People, Yes is that it is indubitable speech. Here is a man speaking, a man who knows all sorts and conditions of men, who can be wise and witty, stirring and nonsensical with them all. Carl Sandburg is a master of his own medium; he can deliver himself with the extraordinary clarity of the comic strip caption, with the punch of the tip-top editorial, with the jingle of the American ballad. If America has a folksinger today he is Carl Sandburg, a singer who comes out of the prairie soil, who has the prairie inheritance, who can hand back to the people a creation that has scraps of their own insight, humor, and imagination, a singer, it should be added, who both says and sings . . . He has a passion that gives dignity to all he says. It is a passion for humanity, not merely for the man with depths of personality in him, but for the ordinary man and woman . . . The People, Yes is his most appealing volume.” 
     
    Praise for Carl Sandburg 
     
    “A poetic genius whose creative power has in no way lessened with the passing years.” —Chicago Tribune 
     
    “Carl Sandburg was more than the voice of America, more than the poet of its strength and genius. He was America.” — President Lyndon B. Johnson
