Born to Love, Cursed to Feel is about love—the good, the bad, and the confusing. It touches on morals and how when emotions are involved it’s not as black and white. The poetry is frequently written in a narrative manner that evocatively pulls you in and makes you feel. This book is about falling in love, bad decisions, and ultimately growth. The essence of it all is to show that no matter how far one falls all the mistakes don’t have to be what defines them.

    Art comes in many shapes and sizes and many different forms.  And one person’s art is often someone else’s object of derision. 
    But what we can all agree on is that Art exists, that it’s something perhaps unique to humankind but very definitely evokes a deep reaction whether of ‘wow!’ or ‘what?’   
    In this volume we take Art as our subject and have it reviewed and explored by other Artists, by Classic Poets. 
    True Art ignites an individual response or a collective awareness.  Our DNA seems to cultivate that.  When we engage with Art the results are at times as surprising as they are interesting. 
    In the words of Keats, Shakespeare, Wharton, Chatterton and very many others Art is seen and understood both as that individual reaction and a collective experience.  Art is where it’s at.

    The Poetry Of Heaven - An Introduction. It is often said that two things are unavoidable; Death and Taxes. Certainly the latter is a common thorn in adult life but as to the former it seems that for many people it is merely a hiccup in Life’s eternal journey. A journey they wish, if being of good deed and character, to share at the eternity of Heaven’s largesse, a reward for Faith and the obligations of Religion. Of course for those not so fortunate an altogether different experience was prepared for them; Hell.  For those who take religion as their companion Heaven conjures up all manner of eternal delights. Here we take the thoughts and words of such greats as Gerald Manley Hopkins, WB Yeats, Rupert Brooke, Emily Dickinson and many others to give their views of a time to come. Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.

    Aristotle's Poetics is the earliest-surviving work of dramatic theory and the first fully intact philosophical treatise to focus on literary theory. In it, the respected Greek sage offers an account of what he calls "poetry" (which the Greeks understood to literally mean "making"), examining its "first principles" and identifying its genres and basic elements, including what he terms drama-comedy, tragedy, and the satyr play-as well as lyric poetry, epic poetry, and iambic pentameter, which he always associates with wit.
