50 Shades of Mothers

50 Shades of Mothers

There is one universal word which all babies instinctively sound in every language and that is 'mama'. It produces a bond the like of which there is no other.Women are hard-wired by Nature to nurture and raise. Along the human chain of generations we would wish that every infant has depended on this woman, found shelter within her arms, food within her breast and the confidence to experience life and all its wonders from her love.Whether we understand it or recognise it, it is women who have shaped the course and journey of humanity.It is true, that mothering, the maternal instinct, comes in all shapes and shades and sizes. Some women find it difficult and others easy. Society with its norms and ever-readiness to make all conform, places pressures and difficulties in the paths of many. Families may not all be harbours of milk and honey but in this volume we take a different view. Here we journey with our classic poets from Christina Georgina Rossetti and Thomas Hardy to Frances W Harper and Kipling, not only the ways, the wonders and the women who take on the responsibility to raise children no matter the problems or dangers to themselves, but also the difficulties and sometimes desperate tragedies that motherhood can involve. We hope these poems inspire every generation to reach out and better themselves and those around. This is our tribute to mothers everywhere.

The Poetry of Cats

The Poetry of Cats

The cat. Independent when it wants and making us dependent on its whims when it deems. Cats are first thought of as being domesticated in the Near East in about 7500 BC. A few thousand years later in Ancient Egypt they are worshipped as gods. From a domestic cat's point of view this is pretty much the life they want and that some cats lead right now. Their larger cousins whether in forest, savannah, mountains or desert were fated for their speed, strength, beauty, feline powers and prowess. They now live in a finely balanced world between freedom and declining numbers as their habitats are destroyed or taken from them. Across the centuries poets have written verse that captures all manner of thoughts on our complex relationship with all cats, though mainly the humble moggy, on whose whims we slave over, eager for a look of recognition, the nod of thanks or the purr of gratitude.

The Poetry of the Moon & Stars

The Poetry of the Moon & Stars

The sun has descended below the far horizon. The inky blackness of night begins to envelop the land. Day has gone and the nocturnal times reveal themselves. But above the dark blanket the moon, whether waxing or waning, stands sentry and around it vast clouds and swirls of stars regiment themselves. We look up in awe and wonder, frail beneath their vista.Our gloried poets are on hand though to capture word and deed, emotion and feeling, friend and foe. Among our ranks of astounding talents are Keats, Byron, Wordsworth, Hardy, Poe, Shelley, Longfellow and many more beside. Their descriptions capture what they see and feel and describe as perhaps only a poet can. This volume comes to you from Portable Poetry, a specialized imprint from Deadtree Publishing. Our range is large and growing and covers single poets, themes, and many compilations.

She first published aged 18 and over the following decade her writing was to flourish and in 1860 her most famous work Goblin Market was released and her reputation was set. A sufferer from Graves disease from the 1870's she also developed breast cancer which subsequently recurred and was to cause her death in 1894. She is buried in Highgate Cemetery.

The Sonnet

The Sonnet

The original meaning of the word derives from the Italian word 'sonetto' meaning 'little song'. Traditionally a sonnet has fourteen lines. Perhaps the best known writer of sonnets is William Shakespeare who wrote 154 of them. Of course with any set form it evolves and over the centuries sonnets have. But as poems, as expressions they have captured our imaginations as few other poetical forms have. Our readers include Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.

The Female Poet - Volume 5

The Female Poet - Volume 5

The gentler sex or the deadlier of the species. Between these two definitions of the female gender lies a collection of some of the most beautiful verse ever written. For much of history women have been seen rather than heard. In this volume poets of great depth and feeling express themselves on a range of topics and in ways that perhaps only a woman can. Here in Volume 5 we bring you works from Christina Georgina Rossetti to Elinor Wylie by way of Charlotte Smith, Sara Teasdale, Katharine Tynan, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Dorothy Wordsworth and many others. Our readers include Ghizela Rowe and Nigel Planer.

The Great Poets

The Great Poets

Author: Christina Georgina Rossetti, Elizabeth Browning Narrator: Georgina Sutton, Rachel Bavidge Release Date: 01/01/2009

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) and Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) were both regarded as the female poet laureates of their time, and between them their writings spanned almost the entire Victorian age, from the end of Romanticism to the beginnings of Modernism. This selection of their shorter works contains all the major themes that animated them - social justice, faith, love and mortality - and some of the best-loved poetry in English, including In The Deep Midwinter and How Do I Love Thee? These poems reflect the changing world in which they were composed, but they also reflect the complex passions of two extraordinary women.
