Summary

EXCERPT:

"This book contains all poetry not in dramatic form that I have written between my seven-and-twentieth year and the year 1921. I have included one long poem in dramatic form, of which a much shortened version, intended for stage representation, is in my book of plays. I have left out nearly all the long notes which seemed necessary before the work of various writers, but especially of my friend Lady Gregory, had made the circumstantial origins of my verse, in ancient legend or in the legends of the country side, familiar to readers of poetry.

THOOR BALLYLEE,
May 1922."

William Butler Yeats (1865 – 1939) was an Irish poet and one of the foremost figures of 20th-century literature. A pillar of the Irish literary establishment, he helped to found the Abbey Theatre, and in his later years served two terms as a Senator of the Irish Free State. He was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival along with Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn and others.
William Butler Yeats is widely considered to be one of the greatest poets of the 20th century.

    Love freely. Love freedom. Love.
    Meet Aurora and Orion: Sister and Brother. Constellations in time. More than blood. More than just fam.
    They look after each other in their small London flat, filled with the memories of their parents' Black Love.
    When that love is threatened, they have to find their way back to each other and to what it means to love whilst Black. Using real-life stories, imagined worlds and new songs inspired by an R&B heritage, they begin a  journey to confronting their own worst fears.
    Chinonyerem Odimba's Black Love is an explosion of form-busting storytelling, an ode to Black music, and those real stories we rarely hear.

    By turns dark and shimmering, Moth is a fast, funny and heartbreaking story about two young people with nowhere to go.
    Sebastian is "that kid" at high school. He's weird. He smells. He's obsessed with comics, and talks to himself. But after a catastrophic fallout with his only friend, Claryssa, he wakes up with a moth in a jar by his bed, and a calling to save the souls of all humanity. And so begins the Passion of Sebastian: a journey into a terrifying and starless night.
    Declan Greene's play Moth was first produced by Arena Theatre and Malthouse Theatre at the CUB Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne, in May 2010. It was premiered in the UK at HighTide Festival and the Bush Theatre, London, in 2013.

    Escape was radio's leading anthology series of high-adventure, airing on CBS from July 7, 1947, until September 25, 1954. The series' well-remembered opening combined Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain with this introduction, as intoned by Paul Frees and/or William Conrad: Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you... Escape! Following the opening theme, a second announcer (usually Roy Rowan) would add: Escape! Designed to free you from the four walls of today for a half-hour of high adventure! Many story premises, both originals and adaptations, involved a protagonist in dire life-or-death straits. Starring Vincent Price, William Conrad, Paul Frees, Jack Webb, Frank Lovejoy, Elliott Lewis, Edgar Barrier, John Dehner and Peggy Webber. Music was supplied by Del Castillo, organist Ivan Ditmars, Cy Feuer, Wilbur Hatch, and Leith Stevens. The announcers were Paul Frees and Roy Rowan. Enjoy 12 exciting half-hour adventures from the long-running Escape radio series.

    Nominated for a Griffin Poetry Prize
     
    In Now You Care, her fifth collection of poetry, Di Brandt voices a passionate argument against environmental degradation and a plea for psychic transformation in our violent times. Tuned in to the toxic fallout of over-industrialization and war, these poems face the dark side of our postmodern climate with a language that doesn't give in. They tremble and shake,they rage against despair, they speak against death and wrestle with the fateful spirits of Armageddon to loosen their choke-hold on humanity. Perhaps we won't figure it out and the horizon is already on fire, and our best love will never be more than an approximation of regret, but grass still grows between the cement blocks of the sidewalk to 'grin of the wild.'

    Gone Writing: The Poems of Moore...

    Humorous poetry from the television program hosted by a beloved Minnesota news anchor. 
    In the 1950s, Dave Moore, a young actor born and raised in Minneapolis, accepted a newscaster position with the local CBS affiliate, WCCO-TV-a job Walter Cronkite turned down. For the next three decades, until his death in 1998, he delivered the evening news with integrity, conviction, humor, and flair, making him a fixture in Minnesota living rooms.  
    At the end of his weekly news-in-review program, Moore on Sunday (or, as he liked to call it, “Moron Sunday”), Moore often signed off by reciting a poem. These poems, composed by Moore’s son Peter and collected here for the first time, offer a fresh and funny take on the common and not-so-common stuff of our everyday lives. Reminiscent of Ogden Nash and Tom Lehrer, with a dash of Dr. Seuss, Peter Moore’s verse captures the essence of his father’s wit, common sense, honesty, and warmth.
