Summary

An essential collection of classic poems by the father of modernist poetry.   In the masterly cadence of T. S. Eliot’s verse, the twentieth century found its definitive poetic voice, an incredible “image of its accelerated grimace,” in the words of Eliot’s friend and mentor Ezra Pound. This twenty-four-poem volume is a rich collection of Eliot’s greatest works—including the classic “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”—all of which unveil the desires, grievances, failures, and heart of modern humanity.  This collection includes “Gerontion,” “Burbank with a Baedeker: Bleistein with a Cigar,” “Sweeney Erect,” “A Cooking Egg,” “Le Directeur,” “Mélange Adultère de Tout,” “Lune de Miel,” “The Hippopotamus,” “Dans le Restaurant,” “Whispers of Immortality,” “Mr. Eliot’s Sunday Morning Service,” “Sweeney Among the Nightingales,” “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” “Portrait of a Lady,” “Preludes,” “Rhapsody on a Windy Night,” “Morning at the Window,” “The Boston Evening Transcript,” “Aunt Helen,” “Cousin Nancy,” “Mr. Apollinax,” “Hysteria,” “Conversation Galante,” and “La Figlia Che Piange.”  This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    John Webster's The White Devil (1612) is a Jacobean revenge tragedy, replete with adultery, murder, ghosts, and violence. The Duke of Brachiano and Vittoria Corombona decide to kill their spouses, Isabella and Camillo, in order to be together, aided by the crafty and ambitious Flamineo, Vittoria's brother. Their actions prompt vows of revenge from Isabella's brother Francisco, the Duke of Florence, and Count Lodovico, who was secretly in love with her. The title refers to the early modern proverb that "the white devil is worse than the black," indicating the hypocrisy practiced by many of the characters in the play. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

    This program is read by the author 
    dayliGht is a dazzling collection of poems from a necessary new voice, at once a clarion call for stories of Black women and a rebuke of broken notions of sexuality and race. 
    Growing up, Roya Marsh was considered "tomboy passing." With an affinity for baggy clothes, cornrows, and bandanas, she came of age in an era when the wide spectrum of gender and sexuality was rarely acknowledged or discussed. She knew she was "different," her family knew she was "different," but anything outside of the heteronorm was either disregarded or disparaged. 
    In her stunning debut, written in protest to an absence of representation, Marsh recalls her early life and the attendant torments of a butch Black woman coming of age in America. In lush, powerful, and vulnerable verses, dayliGht unpacks traumas to unearth truths, revealing a deep well of resilience, a cutting sense of irony, and an astonishing fresh talent. 
    A Macmillan Audio production from MCD x FSG Originals

    This third "stove-top" full of Alphabet Soups --again-- runs the fullest gamut! It ranges from country scenes (Alphabets of Fruits, Birds, Animals and "Country Scenes"), to just plain silliness (Absurd ABCs and Lear's Nonsense Alphabet #5), and finally, topical subjects (the Anti-Slavery Alphabet, the Alphabet of Celebrities --a list quite different when compared to our current crew-- and an Alphabet of Old Testament History). Have fun, and be sure to tune in for the fourth volume, which promises to break new ground in Alphabet Books! (Summary by Denny Sayers)
