    First published in 1943, this is a selection of writings from Dr. Sitwell's private notebooks. It includes essays on prosody, the role of the poet, the nature of poetry, and includes her full length work 'A Notebook on William Shakespeare', as well as discussion of Chaucer, Herrick, Wordsworth, Pope and Byron amongst others. 
     
    The section on Shakespeare consists of essays on the general aspect of the plays - those great hymns to the principle and the glory of life.  There are long essays on King Lear, Macbeth, Othello, and Hamlet.  Miss Sitwell believes, with all humility, that she has discovered new sources of the inspiration of King Lear, throwing a new light on the whole play , and giving us new meaning to the mad scenes, of an unsurpassable grandeur, depth and terror.  There are essays on many of the comedies, and long passages about the Fools and Clowns, all of which serve to illiminate Shakespeare's mighty and many-sided genius.

    JUSTICE. PEACE. POETRY.
     
    Black women face challenges because of the intersectionality of gender and race, but yet many of them are able to achieve academic success and career progression. Marcia Morgan captures the emotional turmoil, as well as what it ‘feels’ like to be
     
    an intersectional subject in two white male dominated institutions: Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service, UK and Higher Education. She uses the rich texture of words to capture the readers imagination, by igniting an emotional connection as well as a logical interpretation of the experience shared through the poems, interview extracts and interpretative narrative.
     
    This book encourages you to think differently and identify strategies to overcome the anxiety and pain associated to the feelings of invisibility, exclusion and isolation.

    Female Poets of the Nineteenth...

    For much of history women have been seen rather than heard. Their thoughts, their views have lain too long in the shadows of our culture.  Whilst this traditional view has some merit it is not entirely accurate. 
    Here, gathered together in these volumes, we can, through their words, experience their lives; we can hear their voices, their thoughts, joys, loves and losses. 
    For the Female Poet there was always the confining hand of men to instruct that their time was perhaps spent more productively elsewhere.  These lines, these gilded verses often protest otherwise. 
    The contribution of women in these earlier centuries is immense and in this series we bring together poets who have created some of the most beautiful and expressive verses ever written.  And remember these words, these telling lines, have been written against the grain of society's male bias.  With their remembered words these female poets have given us a history that we can all now share. 
    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.

    Comic Book Artist and Pop Culture Geek, Dean Rankine doesn't know anything about writing poetry. But a little thing like that isn't going to stop him from writing a poem once a week for a year, putting those poems into a book and sending them out into the universe. 
    "Dean's poetry is like watching someone dragged upside down by a bolting robot horse through a cacti patch. It's exhilarating, you chortle, but then you're flooded with existential dread that we're all gonna die in stupid ways." - Ryan K. Lindsay (Beautiful Canvas, Deer Editor) 
    Narrated by Ben Sorensen 
    Recorded at the studios of BSE Australia for Shooting Star Press.
