Examining the universal and perennial topics of love, beauty, time and mortality, the 154 sonnets by William Shakespeare have been often quoted in the last 400 years since his death. The sonnets were first published in 1609, but there is hardly a language in the world into which they have not been translated.
Allan Quatermain, a professional big game hunter, is approached by English aristocrat Sir Henry Curtis and his friend, Captain John Good, late of the Royal Navy. They need his help finding Sir Henry's brother, who was last seen traveling north into the unexplored interior in search of the fabled King Solomon's Mines. On their perilous journey, they encounter such characters as the evil witch-woman, Gagool, and the terrifying King Twala and his mighty army. The award winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air brings this classic tale to life with a full cast, music score, and thousands of sound effects.
From Homer to Starbucks, a look at sirens and mermaids and feminism and consumerism.
What started as a small sequence of poems about the Starbucks logo grew to monstrous proportions after the poet fell under a siren spell herself. All Day I Dream About Sirens is both an ancient reverie and a screen-induced stupor as these poems reckon with the enduring cultural fascination with siren and mermaid narratives as they span geographies, economies, and generations, chronicling and reconfiguring the male-centered epic and women's bodies and subjectivities.
Feminine energy has been used for centuries to heal the soul. It is a conduit for self-love to return to your life and heal you through wholeness.
Healing HER is a collection of intention-based poetry and prose that aligns you with your own self-healing superpowers. By intuitively resonating with the nurturing qualities of the feminine psyche, we are able to recalibrate our minds, bodies and souls back into a nourishing state, from which even the deepest wounds can be healed. This book was created as an intuitive conduit for your own journey back to self-love and allows you to hold space for the darkness - those peaty, blackened soils that provide the most richness for personal growth. Through this book, you will engage in the emotions that do not only bare witness your pain - but show you a way THROUGH to the other side.

'Carol Ann Duffy is the most humane and accessible poet of our time, and Rapture is essential reading for the broken-hearted of all ages' - Rose Tremain
The effortless virtuosity, directness, drama and humanity of Carol Ann Duffy's verse have made her our most admired and best-loved contemporary poet. Rapture, her seventh collection, is a book-length love-poem, and a moving act of personal testimony; but what sets these poems apart from other treatments of the subject is that Duffy refuses to simplify the contradictions of love, and read its transformations - infatuation, longing, passion, commitment, rancour, separation and grief - as simply redemptive or destructive.
Rapture is a map of real love, in all its churning complexity. Yet in showing us that a song can be made of even the most painful episodes in our lives, Duffy has accessed a new level of directness that sacrifices nothing in the way of subtlety of expression. These are poems that will find deep rhymes in the experience of most readers, and nowhere has Duffy more eloquently articulated her belief that poetry should speak for us all.
