Summary

Christmas Poems & Carols - Premium Collection of the Greatest Christmas Poems in One Volume is a treasure trove that captures the multifaceted spirit of Christmas through a diverse anthology of poems and carols. This illustrated edition brings together the works of esteemed poets such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Emily Dickinson, and William Butler Yeats, among others, showcasing a rich variety of literary styles from the narrative to the lyrical, and the symbolic to the straightforward. The collection eloquently traverses a wide emotional spectrum associated with the holiday season, from joy and festivity to reflection and longing, making it a significant contribution to the literary appreciation of Christmas. Notable for its historical and cultural depth, the anthology stands out for its collective ability to weave together themes of love, faith, nostalgia, and celebration through the lenses of different times and traditions. The contributors to this collection are luminaries in their own right, each belonging to various literary movements and historical contexts that have shaped the Western literary canon. Poets like John Milton and Thomas Hardy bring classical and Victorian sensibilities, respectively, while voices such as Sara Teasdale and Rudyard Kipling introduce elements of Romanticism and the riches of Empire and its complexities. This convergence of backgrounds and eras under the thematic umbrella of Christmas creates a rich tapestry that elucidates the evolving human condition and the perennial significance of the Yuletide spirit. The anthology, thus, serves as a microcosm of broader cultural and literary shifts, encapsulated within the timeless celebration of Christmas. Christmas Poems & Carols is an indispensable collection for readers seeking to immerse themselves in the literary and cultural dimensions of the Christmas season. It offers a unique opportunity to experience the holiday through a multitude of voices and styles, from the serene to the celebratory. This volume is not just an anthology but an invitation to explore the depth and breadth of Christmas sentiments as articulated by some of the most notable poets in the English language. It promises to enrich the reader's holiday experience with its blend of nostalgia, beauty, and the universal quest for meaning and connection in the festive season.

    LibriVox volunteers bring you 15 recordings of Adam and Eve (From “Paradise Lost,” Fourth Book) by John Milton. This was the Weekly Poetry project for Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton. It was originally published in 1667 (though written nearly ten years earlier) in ten books, with a total of over ten thousand individual lines of verse. A second edition followed in 1674, redivided into twelve books (in the manner of the division of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification; most of the poem was written while Milton was blind, and was transcribed for him.Milton first presents Adam and Eve in Book IV with impartiality. The relationship between Adam and Eve is one of "mutual dependence, not a relation of domination or hierarchy." While the author does place Adam above Eve in regard to his intellectual knowledge, and in turn his relation to God, he also grants Eve the benefit of knowledge through experience.

    In The Emma Press Anthology of Love, that familiar four-letter word takes on a world of meanings. Love is written across the sky for the whole world to see, and whispered to a partner at the bus stop in the rain. Love is transcendent and love is everyday, found equally in steamy texts and shopping lists, and the only reliable thing about it is that it's never where you expected to find it. Building on the success of 2015's Mildly Erotic Verse, this book explores the diversity of modern romance. Often awkward, never perfect, romantic encounters and relationships are rooted in our own contemporary world of Tinder, Twitter and TV dinners. But they are also part of an enduring tradition: the cornerstone of our common humanity. In this book, thirty fresh, diverse and original voices speak to what love means right here, right now, bridging the gap between Hollywood imagery and modern lived experience.
