Summary

Happiness, pain, breakup, lies, lust and laughter. This collection tackles the ups and downs of relationships including the darkness and depression that is seldom spoken of. Mackenzie addresses the despair, isolation and loss experienced during break ups. 
 
But it isn't all doom and gloom, with the lows come the highs and humour to keep us going. Many of the poems marvel at the uplift and liberation of new or passionate love. 
 
Tangled Light contains poems and songs about the vast spectrum of love that we can all relate to.

    Wade in the Water - Poems

    In Wade in the Water, Tracy K. Smith boldly ties America's contemporary moment both to our nation's fraught founding history and to a sense of the spirit, the everlasting. These are poems of sliding scale: some capture a flicker of song or memory; some collage an array of documents and voices; and some push past the known world into the haunted, the holy. Smith's signature voice—inquisitive, lyrical, and wry—turns over what it means to be a citizen, a mother, and an artist in a culture arbitrated by wealth, men, and violence. Here, private utterance becomes part of a larger choral arrangement as the collection widens to include erasures of The Declaration of Independence and the correspondence between slave owners, a found poem comprised of evidence of corporate pollution and accounts of near-death experiences, a sequence of letters written by African Americans enlisted in the Civil War, and the survivors' reports of recent immigrants and refugees. Wade in the Water is a potent and luminous book by one of America’s essential poets.

    By Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson 
      
    Narrated by Denis Daly 
      
    Andrew Barton Paterson was born on a property near Orange in New South Wales, in 1864, and was educated first by a governess and later at Sydney Grammar School. He qualified as a lawyer but devoted much of his time to writing, and gained national popularity especially for his poetry and ballads. He was also very active as a journalist. 
      
    The works for which Paterson is famous were mostly written before the First World War, and are collected in three books of poems, The Man from Snowy River and Other Verses (1895), Rio Grande's Last Race and Other Verses (1902), and Saltbush Bill, J.P. and Other Verses (1917). 
      
    This anthology contains 47 poems, which cover a wide range of subjects, including racing, cattle and sheep droving, and tributes to military patriotism stemming from the recently concluded Second Boer War.

    Don Juan Canto 1

    Lord Byron

    Don Juan is a long narrative poem by Byron, based very loosely on the legend of the evil seducer, Don Juan. The first and second of (eventually) seventeen Cantos composed during Byron's self-imposed exile from England appeared, anonymously, in July 1819 and were greeted with scandal, condemnation, admiration and hilarity. Modern critics generally consider the self-proclamed 'epic', which remained incomplete at Byron's death, to be his masterpiece. (Summary by Peter Gallagher).
