The Poetry of Angels

The Poetry of Angels

Author: Emily Dickinson, Wb Yeats, William Blake Narrator: Ghizela Rowe Release Date: 01/01/2021

Angels are undeniably associated with religion and more usually Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Often they are seen as supernatural beings, benevolent celestial intermediaries interposed between God, Heaven and humanity.They are protectors, our heavenly guides, and the servants of God. They are also His Messengers. The faithful seek their blessing, their help. A visitation is a miraculous event, filled with reverence, awe and shared with the wider community as a sign that faith has reward.Other religions also make note of angelic contributions including Sikhism and Zoroastrianism. There is also the unnerving distinction that there are 'fallen Angels' that seep dark, malevolent forces into the world. They tempt, they betray, they lead us where it is not safe to go.But faith once more resolves the dilemma; good will overcome evil. And whether a believer or not, there is a comfort that the angels of our hearts are the ones of love, of care and compassion.Obviously there are complications, a fact that our classic poets through the centuries, including Alexander Pope, Edmund Spenser, Radclyffe Hall and Hafiz, use as they write verse to explain, to reveal and to help us understand exactly why Angels are so prevalent amongst our thoughts.

Songs of Innocence and of Experience

Songs of Innocence and of Experience

Author: William Blake Narrator: Douglas Harvey Release Date: 01/06/2020

Songs of Innocence and of Experience is a collection of 45 poems by English poet William Blake. Songs of Innocence is the first part of the collection and appeared in 1789 with engraved illustrations by Blake. The second part, Songs of Experience, also illustrated, was added in 1794 when Blake published the whole under the full title of Songs of Innocence and Experience Showing the Two Contrary States of the Human Soul. The categories of innocence and experience are states of mind and ways of seeing that roughly correspond to the classical model of “paradise” and “fall”, as in Milton’s Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained. Blake helped formulate the then contemporary Romantic notion of childhood as a state of innocence, without fear, inhibition, or corruption; and adulthood as a contrary and fallen state of original sin prey to oppression, corruption, and power. The opposition is reinforced by poems with like titles and contrasting themes in each part. The poems are short, simple, and acutely sensitive to both joys of life and the harsh realities of class and poverty in the emerging Industrial Revolution.

15 Minutes Of Love Poems - Volume 3

15 Minutes Of Love Poems - Volume 3

Author: Robert Burns, Rumi, William Blake Narrator: Richard Mitchley Release Date: 01/05/2020

Love. What is love?The question is asked by each of us but the answer remains elusive. Dictionaries summon up many words but none fulfill. Love itself is often ethereal, felt but only seen in a glance, a look, a fleeting touch. Part of Love’s beauty is perhaps in the fact that the question never can be adequately answered; its ephemeral, a chimera of the heart and only felt. Our own experiences are unique and personal to ourselves and of little help defining it for another.Love is perhaps best expressed through poetry. As Plato said 2500 years ago “At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet”. Writing a love poem for ones’ partner is seen as the most romantic of gestures. It opens our hearts to another's. Lovers love.Here, in this volume history’s greatest poets convey thoughts, feelings and sentiments of love to you in quick (or bite-size) conversations of verse that can slip into your day and your partner's heart.

For many in Europe the focus has shifted west to the Americas, both by settlement and by war against the indigenous tribes.

Songs of Innocence and of Experience

Songs of Innocence and of Experience

Author: William Blake Narrator: Michael Scott Release Date: 01/08/2018

William Blake is known for some very mystical hard-to-understand poetry, but his 'Songs of Innocence' and 'Songs of Experience' is very different from his other work. Innocence was printed five years before Experience, but the books complement each other: the first consisting of poems telling of the innocence of the world, and the second tempering these poems with contrasting tales about experience. Here in beautiful, almost child-like simplicity, he describes childhood and purity, as well as the darker realities of corruption and disillusionment.

Winter: A Season In Verse

Winter: A Season In Verse

At this time of the year as the nights close in and the temperature drops Winter seems like a season that nobody really enjoys and we look forward all the more to Spring. For many children however it is the bounty of Christmas that steals their attention and for others the renewal of the New Year. But for Nature it is pause for breath, to take stock of what has gone by in the year to date and ready herself for the energies and dramatic development to the landscape that Spring will bring. But Winter has its beauty too; the frost or snow covered ground, the grey swell of a winters sea and the bleak yet beautiful imagery of the landscape. Our collection of poems brings together the talents of many best loved poets such as Thomas Hardy, Robert Browning, Emily Dickinson, Daniel Sheehan, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Robert Louis Stevenson and Emily Bronte are amongst many who catalogue and celebrate the season and its feelings in unique and telling ways. This collection is read for you by Ghizela Rowe And Gideon Wagner.
