The Tell-Tale HeartEdgar Allan Poe
"The Tell-Tale Heart" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1843. It follows an unnamed narrator who insists on his sanity after murdering an old man with a "vulture eye". The murder is carefully calculated, and the murderer hides the body by cutting it into pieces and hiding it under the floorboards. Ultimately the narrator's guilt manifests itself in the hallucination that the man's heart is still beating under the floorboards. It is unclear what relationship, if any, the old man and his murderer share. It has been suggested that the old man is a father figure or, perhaps, that his vulture eye represents some sort of veiled secret. The ambiguity and lack of details about the two main characters stand in stark contrast to the specific plot details leading up to the murder. The story was first published in James Russell Lowell's The Pioneer in January 1843. "The Tell-Tale Heart" is widely considered a classic of the Gothic fiction genre and one of Poe's most famous short stories.

Beowulf (Bilingual Edition)Seamus Heaney
New York Times bestseller and winner of the Whitbread Award. Composed toward the end of the first millennium, Beowulf is the elegiac narrative of the adventures of Beowulf, a Scandinavian hero who saves the Danes from the seemingly invincible monster Grendel and, later, from Grendel's mother. He then returns to his own country and dies in old age in a vivid fight against a dragon. The poem is about encountering the monstrous, defeating it, and then having to live on in the exhausted aftermath. In the contours of this story, at once remote and uncannily familiar at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney finds a resonance that summons power to the poetry from deep beneath its surface. Drawn to what he has called the "four-squareness of the utterance" in ?Beowulf? and its immense emotional credibility, Heaney gives these epic qualities new and convincing reality for the contemporary reader.

La Divina Comedia (Spanish Edition)Dante Alighieri
La Divina Comedia (en italiano: Divina Commedia) es un poema épico escrito por Dante Alighieri. Se desconoce la fecha exacta en que fue escrito aunque las opiniones más reconocidas aseguran que el Infierno pudo ser compuesto entre 1304 y 1307 o 1308, el Purgatorio de 1307 o 1308 a 1313 o 1314 y por último, el Paraíso de 1313 o 1314 a 1321, fecha del fallecimiento del poeta. Se considera por tanto que la redacción de la primera parte habría sido alternada con la redacción del Convivium y De Vulgari Eloquentia, mientras que De Monarchia pertenecería a la época de la segunda o tercera etapa, a la última de las cuales hay que atribuir sin duda la de dos obras de menor empeño: la Cuestión del agua y la tierra y las dos églogas escritas en respuesta a sendos poemas de Giovanni del Virgilio. - Extraído de Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre

Leaves of GrassWalt Whitman
"I sing the body electric." Poetry, according to Aristotle, is the rendering not of actual events but of such things as might or could happen in accordance with probability or necessity. When this is turned into an act of great beauty, the cleansing and quieting of the mind and soul can ensue. “Come, said my soul, Such verses for my Body let us write, (for we are one,) That should I after return, Or, long, long hence, in other spheres, There to some group of mates the chants resuming, (Tallying Earth’s soil, trees, winds, tumultuous waves,) Ever with pleas’d smile I may keep on, Ever and ever yet the verses owning–as, first, I here and now Signing for Soul and Body, set to them my name, Walt Whitman" The work of a lifetime and Walt Whitman’s masterpiece, Leaves of Grass was originally a small book that Whitman intended to be so small as to be carried in a pocket. An ode to the human body and the mind thus materialized, the book combines the rhythms of the earth and the sea with the charge of a deep, philosophical gaze upon the immediacy of the human body and mind in the world of the elements. “Being one with nature,” Withman’s aim, is the idea behind the poems in the book, some of the most beautiful that have ever been written in the English language. Here’s what he asks in I Sing the Body Electric: "And if the body does not do fully as much as the soul? And if the body were not the soul, what is the soul?" This is a book that will question you, as it questions itself. It is a book that will make you ponder and will make you see. Leaf by leaf, it will open up to you in all its sensuality and uniqueness which was perceived, at the time of its publication, as oddity and extravagance. Those of you who read poetry and especially those of you who don’t, know that this is one of those rarest books which can make you happy.

Dead Man's FloatJim Harrison
"Harrison's poems succeed on the basis of an open heart and a still-ravenous appetite for life." The Texas Observer The title Dead Man's Float is inspired by a technique used by swimmers to conserve energy when exhausted, to rest up for the long swim to shore. In his fourteenth volume of poetry, Jim Harrison presents keen awareness of physical pains, delights in the natural world, and reflects on humanity's tentative place in a universe filled with ninety billion galaxies. By turns mournful and celebratory, these fearless and exuberant poems accomplish what Harrison's poems always do: wake us up to the possibilities of being fully alive. "Forthright and unaffected, even brash, Harrison always scoops us straight into the world whether writing fiction or nonfiction. This new collection [ Dead Man's Float ] takes its cue from a technique swimmers use to conserve energy in deep water, and Harrison goes in deep, acknowledging our frailness even as he seamlessly connects with a world that moves from water to air to the sky beyond." Library Journal Harrison pours himself into everything he writes in poems, you do meet Harrison head-on. As he navigates his seventies, he continues to marvel with succinct awe and earthy lyricism over the wonders of birds, dogs, and stars as he pays haunting homage to his dead and contends with age’s assaults. The sagely mischievous poet of the North Woods and the Arizona desert laughs at himself as he tries to relax by imagining that he’s doing the dead man’s float only to sink into troubling memories Bracingly candid, gracefully elegiac, tough, and passionate, Harrison travels the deep river of the spirit, from the wailing precincts of a hospital to a green glade of soft marsh grass near a pool in a creek” to the moon-bright sea.” Donna Seaman, Booklist "Harrison doesn't write like anyone else, relying entirely on the toughness of his vision and intensity of feeling." Publishers Weekly Warbler This year we have two gorgeous yellow warblers nesting in the honeysuckle bush. The other day I stuck my head in the bush. The nestlings weigh one twentieth of an ounce, about the size of a honeybee. We stared at each other, startled by our existence. In a month or so, when they reach the size of bumblebees they'll fly to Costa Rica without a map. Jim Harrison , one of America's most versatile and celebrated writers, is the author of over thirty books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction including Legends of the Fall , the acclaimed trilogy of novellas. With a fondness for open space and anonymous thickets, he divides his time between Montana and southern Arizona.
Rumi: The Book of LoveColeman Barks
The Sufi mystic and poet Jalaluddin Rumi is most beloved for his poems expressing the ecstasies and mysteries of love in all its forms—erotic, platonic, divine—and Coleman Barks presents the best of them in this delightful and inspiring collection. Rendered with freshness, intensity, and beauty as Barks alone can do, these startling and rich poems range from the "wholeness" one experiences with a true lover, to the grief of a lover's loss, and all the states in between: from the madness of sudden love to the shifting of a romance to deep friendship to the immersion in divine love. Rumi, the ultimate poet of love, explores all "the magnificent regions of the heart," and he opens you to the lover within. Coleman Barks has made this medieval, Persian-born (present-day Afghanistan) poetic and spiritual genius the most popular poet in America today. This seductive volume reveals Rumi's charms and depths more than any other.

Pappa Gander: the Less Better Half of Mother GooseRobby Charters
Originally titled "Jack and the Beanstalk: the Whole Story plus the Sequel", now merged with "Pappa Gander", with better layout design and another story or two: At long last, Pappa Gander gets a few words in edgewise. Read some of your old familiar nursery rhymes rewritten his way, plus a few other rhymes, limericks, some haiku, and stories... Jack and the Beanstalk -- did you ever wonder what happened to the cow? or the beans from the beanstalk? What did Jack do later in life? Find out in Jack and the Beanstalk, the Whole Story, Plus the Sequel... The Adventures of Jack and Jill -- a hilarious blend of a lot of familiar rhymes. Pappa Gander gets things a bit mixed up here, and ends up with a second version of Jack and the Beanstalk, but with the Seven Dwarves instead of the giant... Snow White, from an alternative universe where things happen a bit differently... Robby, the author behind Pappa Gander says: "My poetic inspirations were Roald Dahl, Shel Silverstien and Ogden Nash. Also included are some of my cartoons, largly influenced by Gary Larson (Far Side). Some of the rhymes were done strictly because I found words that rhyme in an amusing way (amusing to me, anyway)."
