The Poetry Hour - Volume 1. Poetry is often cited as our greatest use of words. The English language has well over a million of them and poets down the ages seem, at times, to make use of every single one. But often they use them in simple ways to describe anything and everything from landscapes to all aspects of the human condition. Poems can evoke within us an individual response that takes us by surprise; that opens our ears and eyes to very personal feelings. Forget the idea of classic poetry being somehow dull and boring and best kept to children’s textbooks. It still has life, vibrancy and relevance to our lives today. Where to start? How to do that? Poetry can be difficult. We’ve put together some very eclectic Poetry Hours, with a broad range of poets and themes, to entice you and seduce you with all manner of temptations. In this hour we introduce poets of the quality and breadth of Henry Wadsworh Longfellow, DH Lawrence, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Edgar Allan Poe and more. All of them are from Portable Poetry, a dedicated poetry publisher. We believe that poetry should be a part of our everyday lives, uplifting the soul & reaching the parts that other arts can’t. Our range of audiobooks and ebooks cover volumes on some of our greatest poets to anthologies of seasons, months, places and a wide range of themes. Portable Poetry can found at iTunes, Audible, the digital music section on Amazon and most other digital stores. This audio book is also duplicated in print as an ebook. Same title. Same words. Perhaps a different experience. But with Amazon’s whispersync you can pick up and put down on any device – start on audio, continue in print and any which way after that. Portable poetry – Let us join you for the journey. The contents of this volume are; The Poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning (An Introduction, How Do I Love Thee, A Man’s Requirements, If Thou Must Love me Let It Be For Nought, The Lady’s Yes, A Thought For A Lonely Death Bed), The Poetry of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (An Introduction, The Sound of the Sea, The Phantom Ship – Birds of Passage – Flight The First, The Day is Done), The Poetry of May (An Introduction, May Magnificat by Gerard Manley Hopkins, May by Sara Teasdale, Late Spring by Henry van Dyke), The Poetry of Emily Jane Bronte (An Introduction, Spellbound, A Daydream, No Coward’s Soul Is Mine, Moonlight Summer Moonlight), The Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe (Annabel Lee, Spirits of The Dead, Epigram for Wall Street, The Haunted Palace), The Poetry of DH Lawrence (An Introduction, The Drained Cup, Gloire D’ Dijon, Piccadilly Circus At Night – Street Walkers), The Poetry of Daniel Sheehan (An Introduction, I Carry the Cross Of A Minor Faith, In The Safety Of Your Mouth, The Monotone of Innocence, My Name Is Stolen From Beauty’s Own Blood, Amongst The Redwoods – Giant And Still, My Muscled Soul, But Stay A While, I Am What He Writes About), The Poetry of Charles Dickens (An Introduction, The Song of the Wreck, The Ivy Green, The Hymn Of The Wiltshire Labourers), The Poetry of Amy Lowell (The Crescent Moon, Sea Shell, New York At Night).
