For the first time, Parini has recorded his best known and most recent poems in an audiobook that welcomes the listener to enter his universe, which revolves around his deep connection to nature and underlines his concerns about the impacts of pollution and climate change.

    Perceptive, funny, and nostalgic, E. B. White’s stroll around Manhattan remains the quintessential love letter to the city, written by one of America’s foremost literary figures. The New York Times named Here Is New York one of the ten best books ever written about the metropolis, and the New Yorker called it “the wittiest essay, and one of the most perceptive, ever done on the city.” Included with this essay are two short poems by E. B. White: “Commuter” and “Critic,” both published in the New Yorker in 1925.

    Harry Graham made a great name for himself as a writer of light verse and humorous stories, including the inimitable “Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes.” His classic story, “Biffin on the Bassoon”, recounts a tale of decidedly amateur musician who inadvertently finds himself playing the bassoon solo at the inaugural performance by the London Philmelodic of Heinzmacher’s Die Schöpfung, with comic results. Written very much in the vein of P. G.Wodehouse, Harry Graham’s work should be compulsory reading for all lapsed instrument players.

    The epic made simple. The miracle in the mundane. One day, while browsing an antique store in Helena, Montana, photographer Tyler Knott Gregson stumbled upon a vintage Remington typewriter for sale. Standing up and using a page from a broken book he was buying for $2, he typed a poem without thinking, without planning, and without the ability to revise anything. He fell in love. Three years and almost one thousand poems later, Tyler is now known as the creator of the Typewriter Series: a striking collection of poems typed onto found scraps of paper or created via blackout method. Chasers of the Light features some of his most insightful and beautifully worded pieces of work—poems that illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.

    Lucretius was born c. 99 BC, and On the Nature of Things is his only surviving work. His aim was to free the Roman world from its two great terrors—the gods and death. Lucretius argues that the gods are not actively involved in life, so need not be appeased; and that death is the end of everything human—body and soul—and therefore should not be feared. But On the Nature of Things is also a poem of striking imagery, intimate natural observation and touching pathos. It is one of the most influential writings in Western thought.

    No poet is more closely identified with the First World War than Wilfred Owen. His striking body of work, grim to the point of brutality yet, at the same time, majestic and awe-inspiring, defines the war for us. It through his famous poems that Owen reflects on the four terrible months that he lived through. He conveys the experience of war, the death, the destruction and the filth, through a unique poetic language and a bold artistic vision.  This anthology collects forty-nine of Owen’s iconic poems and serves not only as a perfect introduction to his verse but also as a commemoration of the sacrifice that was made by an entire generation of young men.
