Summary

The Greatest Christmas Carols & Poems encapsulates the rich tapestry of thematic depth and stylistic diversity that characterizes classic literature. Echoing through its pages are the sounds of yuletide and reflections on human values such as hope, generosity, and community spirit. From the serene to the celebratory, the collection showcases a variety of literary forms—ballads, sonnets, and narrative poems, among others—united in their exploration of Christmas and its cultural resonance. Spanning centuries of literary tradition, the anthology serves as a testament to the enduring power of festive verse to evoke shared emotional experiences, even as it delves into individual meditations on winter's contemplative quietude. The anthology is enriched by the backgrounds of its luminary contributors; poets like William Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, and John Milton, whose works have significantly shaped English literature. Collectively, these authors traverse a vast landscape of aesthetic and philosophical concerns, reflecting their eras' triumphs and conflicts. Their contributions, when viewed through the lens of Christmas, offer pivotal insights into how this holiday has been perennially reimagined in literary art. The anthology thus not only adheres to but elevates traditional and historical portrayals of Christmas, connecting them to broader literary movements such as Romanticism, Victorianism, and even elements of Transcendentalism. 'The Greatest Christmas Carols & Poems' is not just a collection; it is an invitation to explore and celebrate an amalgam of profound voices and stylistic flourishes that bring to the fore the spirit of Christmas in multifarious ways. It offers readers a unique educational journey through the landscape of poetic expression, urging them to perceive the festival's familiar themes through fresh, thoughtfully curated perspectives. This collection is ideal for anyone eager to immerse themselves in classic poetry and familiarize themselves with how different authors dialogue on similar themes, thus providing a richer, more nuanced understanding of the cultural and emotional weight Christmas holds in literature.

    Emotions. They drive us forward, striving to achieve the unthinkable. 
    But they can also drag us down, tear us apart, and leave us unwilling to barely lift our heads. 
    Well, I've experienced both sides of this spectrum. And in my first-ever full-length audiobook, Emotions Felt to the Bone, I share these journeys with you in the form of poetry. 
    Some are joyful; others are harrowing. Some evoke humor, and others, hopelessness. 
    Writing and narrating this compilation of poetry has been one of the better emotional experiences in my life. And I want nothing more than to share it with you.

    Theatre Royal. The very name summons up something of grandeur and eloquence. And it was. Hosted by Laurence Olivier, these big-name productions also included the creme de la creme of acting talents from John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, and Orson Welles to Trevor Howard, Michael Redgrave and Olivier himself. They were based on works by the worlds’ leading authors, among them Charles Dickens, Henry James, Oscar Wilde and Anton Chekhov.  These are but a few of whose company we shall be keeping as we raise the curtain on our first instalment of theatrical history.

    Just as he upended the conventions of the novel with On the Road, Jack Kerouac revolutionized American poetry in this ingenious collection Bringing together selections from literary journals and his private notebooks, Jack Kerouac’s Scattered Poems exemplifies the Beat Generation icon’s innovative approach to language. Kerouac’s poems, populated by hitchhikers, Chinese grocers, Buddhist saints, and cultural figures from Rimbaud to Harpo Marx, evoke the primal and the sublime, the everyday and the metaphysical. Scattered Poems, which includes the playfully instructive “How to Meditate,” the sensory “San Francisco Blues,” and an ode to Kerouac’s fellow Beat Allen Ginsberg, is rich in striking images and strident urgency. Kerouac’s widespread influences feel new and fresh in these poems, which echo the rhythm of improvisational jazz music, and the centuries-old structure of Japanese haiku. In rebelling against the dry rules and literary pretentiousness he perceived in early twentieth-century poetry, Kerouac pioneered a poetic style informed by oral tradition, driven by concrete language with neither embellishment nor abstraction, and expressed through spontaneous, uncensored writing.

    In Georgian London no one is more famous than Samuel Foote. Satirist, impressionist and dangerous comedian, friend of David Garrick and Dr Johnson, he is a bona fide celebrity in an age obsessed with fame. He even has the ear of the King.
    But when Foote finds himself at the centre of a media storm - and under the surgeon's knife - there's only one question on everyone's lips: does fame make you mad?
    Based on Ian Kelly's award-winning biography, Mr Foote's Other Leg is a riotously funny play exploring our obsession with celebrities, through the true story of the Oscar Wilde of the eighteenth century. It premiered at Hampstead Theatre in September 2015, in a production directed by Richard Eyre and featuring Simon Russell Beale as Foote.
    'Written with panache and wit - as lively and entertaining a historical biography as you are ever likely to read' Sunday Times on Ian Kelly's biography of Samuel Foote
