The award-winning author of The Yellow Birds returns with an extraordinary debut poetry collection. National Book Award finalist, Iraq war veteran, novelist, and poet Kevin Powers creates a deeply affecting portrait of a life shaped by war. Letter Composed during a Lull in the Fighting captures the many moments that comprise a soldier’s life: driving down the Texas highway; waiting for the unknown in the dry Iraqi heat; writing a love letter; listening to a mother recount her dreams. Written with evocative language and discernment, Powers’ poetry strives to make sense of the war and its echoes through human experience. Just as The Yellow Birds was hailed as the “first literary masterpiece produced by the Iraq war” (Los Angeles Times), this collection will make its mark as a powerful, enduring work.Available Formats: Download0.9 hrs • Feb/01/2013 • Unabridged
In this collection of fourteen poems by veteran vocal performer Carrington MacDuffie, spoken word is interwoven with music, sound, and vocals to create evocative and richly colored works of the imagination. Surreal, with a hint of the fairy tale, crossing grittiness with sweetness and light, the stories and images are haunting, engaging expressions of the female voice. Other voices are brought in to accent the work, and the music moves from meditative and entrancing to energized and impassioned. This highly original, multilayered confluence of language and sound can be experienced intimately for the depth of its content or enjoyed for its dreamy atmosphere.Available Formats: Download, Digital Rental10.3 hrs • Apr/10/2012 • Unabridged
First appearing around 1400, The Alliterative Morte Arthur, or The Death of King Arthur, is one of the most widely beloved and spectacularly alliterative poems ever penned in Middle English. Now, from the internationally acclaimed translator of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, comes this magisterial new presentation of the Arthurian tale, rendered in unflinching and gory detail. Following Arthur’s bloody conquests across the cities and fields of Europe, all the way to his spectacular and even bloodier fall, this masterpiece features some of the most spellbinding and poignant passages in English poetry. Never before have the deaths of Arthur’s loyal knights, his own final hours, and the subsequent burial been so poignantly evoked. Echoing the lyrical passion that so distinguished Seamus Heaney’s Beowulf, Simon Armitage has produced a virtuosic new translation that promises to become both the literary event of the year and the definitive edition for generations to come.Available Formats: Download, Digital Rental6.8 hrs • Mar/15/2011 • Unabridged
Walt Whitman experienced first-hand the ravages of the Civil War as a volunteer nurse in the hospitals of Washington DC. During that time, he filled notebooks with “impromptu jottings” that became the basis of two works: Drum-Taps, a collection of seventy-one poems, and Memoranda during the War, an intimate diary of his experience tending to the sick and dying during the war. These two historical works are presented here, narrated by acclaimed actor Bronson Pinchot.Available Formats: Download, Digital Rental0.8 hrs • Apr/11/2006 • Unabridged
“Sisterhood in the service of truth is an undeniable force in these remarkable times. My Sisters, here, there, and everywhere, this poem is for you.” In the tradition of Maya Angelou’s Phenomenal Woman, bestselling author Pearl Cleage brings us an inspiring poem for all women, destined to become a classic. Cleage refers to We Speak Your Names as a “celebration” which is part of an oral tradition that encompasses the entire history of the African American experience. This tradition, she says, grew out of an understanding that “some things must be spoken out loud to get where the magic is.” What results is a praise poem which acknowledges the legacy of those who have gone before, and a realization, “with a knowing deeper than the flow of human blood in human veins, that we are part of something better, truer, deeper.”Available Formats: Download, Digital Rental2.3 hrs • Aug/31/1993 • Unabridged
