The Odyssey - Homer & Emily Wilson Cover Art

The Odyssey

The Odyssey by Homer & Emily Wilson

A lean, fleet-footed translation that recaptures Homer’s “nimble gallop” and brings an ancient epic to new life. The first great adventure story in the Western canon, The Odyssey is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war; about wealth, poverty, and power; about marriage and family; about travelers, hospitality, and the yearning for home. In this fresh, authoritative version—the first English translation of The Odyssey by a woman—this stirring tale of shipwrecks, monsters, and magic comes alive in an entirely new way. Written in iambic pentameter verse and a vivid, contemporary idiom, this engrossing translation matches the number of lines in the Greek original, thus striding at Homer’s sprightly pace and singing with a voice that echoes Homer’s music. Wilson’s Odyssey captures the beauty and enchantment of this ancient poem as well as the suspense and drama of its narrative. Its characters are unforgettable, from the cunning goddess Athena, whose interventions guide and protect the hero, to the awkward teenage son, Telemachus, who struggles to achieve adulthood and find his father; from the cautious, clever, and miserable Penelope, who somehow keeps clamoring suitors at bay during her husband’s long absence, to the “complicated” hero himself, a man of many disguises, many tricks, and many moods, who emerges in this translation as a more fully rounded human being than ever before. A fascinating introduction provides an informative overview of the Bronze Age milieu that produced the epic, the major themes of the poem, the controversies about its origins, and the unparalleled scope of its impact and influence. Maps drawn especially for this volume, a pronunciation glossary, and extensive notes and summaries of each book make this an Odyssey that will be treasured by a new generation of scholars, students, and general readers alike.

Moving Full - Michael Patrick Straw Cover Art

Moving Full

Moving Full by Michael Patrick Straw

This is a collection of over 100 poems that deal with depression, religion, life, death, education. It is divided into five chapters which are The Book of Aria, The Book of David, The Book of Incidents, The Book of Dreaming and The Book of Lovers. This is the first release and I suspect that there may be a few revisions along the way.  The title comes from a poem published in 1985 while studying at Queens University in Kingston Canada. That poem was original published in the college newspaper at the University of Ottawa. Why buy a book of poems from an unknown author?  Good question and one that only the book will answer for you. But here’s a thought, I have been giving poetry away for years, wedding gifts, birthdays, funerals, words for someone who needed solace and words just thrown out on social media. People keep saying they love it… well I suppose this is my way of discovering the truth. Michael Patrick Straw June 2017

Beowulf (Bilingual Edition) - Seamus Heaney Cover Art

Beowulf (Bilingual Edition)

Beowulf (Bilingual Edition) by 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.

The Tell-Tale Heart - Edgar Allan Poe Cover Art

The Tell-Tale Heart

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar 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.

La Divina Comedia (Spanish Edition)

La Divina Comedia (Spanish Edition) Illustrated by 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
