Summary

The Difference Between is a collection of 66 poems that invite comparisons between seemingly disparate words, ideas, or things. Sparked by the poem "The Importance of the Whale in the Field of Iris" by Pattiann Rogers, this series similarly pairs and juxtaposes to create surprising parallels and previously unimagined relationships. While most these poems start with the anaphora, "The Difference Between," by the end of the book it's clear that this is as much a confirmation of our interconnectedness, an exploration of what Whitman calls the "vast similitude" that spans, holds, and encloses everything.

    This collection, with poems published in 1817, Endymion, and poems published in 1820, includes his best known works, such as: Ode to a Nightingale, Ode to a Grecian Ur, Ode to Psyche, Lamia, Eve of St. Agnes, Ode on Melancholy, To Autumn, and Hyperion. According to Wikipedia: "John Keats (1795 – 1821) was one of the principal poets of the English Romantic movement. During his short life, his work received constant critical attacks from periodicals of the day, but his posthumous influence on poets such as Alfred Tennyson has been immense. Elaborate word choice and sensual imagery characterize Keats's poetry, including a series of odes that were his masterpieces and which remain among the most popular poems in English literature. Keats's letters, which expound on his aesthetic theory of "negative capability"[1], are among the most celebrated by any writer."

    A Beautiful Composition of Broken is inspired by some of the events expressed artistically by Samantha King in the bestseller Born to Love, Cursed to Feel. It serves as a poetic documentary of the lives of people who have been mistreated, misunderstood, and wrongfully labeled in a way that limits them in this world. The author’s most personal volume yet, A Beautiful Composition of Broken builds a conceptual bridge between r.h. Sin’s earliest work and his forthcoming series, Planting Gardens in Graves.

    The Poetry Of Edgar Allan Poe. Poetry is a fascinating use of language.  With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries.  In this series we look at the American writer Edgar Allan Poe who in the following poems is seen to be a gifted and accomplished poet. Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe) was born in Boston Massachusetts on January 19th 1809 and was orphaned at an early age.  Taken in by the Allan family his education was cut short by lack of money and he went to the military academy, West Point where he failed to become an officer.  His early literary works were poetic but he quickly turned to prose. He worked for several magazines and journals until in January 1845 The Raven was published and became an instant classic.  Thereafter followed the works for which he is now so rightly famed as a master of the mysterious and macabre. In this volume we bring you some of his poetry, all less well known than his stories, but fascinating none the less. Some are dark and others speak of love.  Together they help to round out Edgar Allan Poe the Artist. Poe died at the early age of 40 in 1849 in Baltimore, Maryland.  Many of these poems are also available our sister company Portable Poetry.  Many samples are at our youtube channel   http://www.youtube.com/user/PortablePoetry?feature=mhee   and can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.
