John Brierley's book was first published in 1987 and was very well received. It has now been re-issued in its second edition owing to a demand from students and teachers. The book represents the essence of many talks given to parents and teachers of nursery and infant children and teacher trainers.

The study supports the move for more and better opportunities for children in the crucial years from birth to seven.

Many people in Great Britain and the United States can recall elderly relatives who remembered long stretches of verse learned at school decades earlier, yet most of us were never required to recite in class. Heart Beats is the first book to examine how poetry recitation came to assume a central place in past curricular programs, and to investigate when and why the once-mandatory exercise declined. Telling the story of a lost pedagogical practice and its wide-ranging effects on two sides of the Atlantic, Catherine Robson explores how recitation altered the ordinary people who committed poems to heart, and changed the worlds in which they lived. Heart Beats begins by investigating recitation's progress within British and American public educational systems over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and weighs the factors that influenced which poems were most frequently assigned. Robson then scrutinizes the recitational fortunes of three short works that were once classroom classics: Felicia Hemans's "Casabianca," Thomas Gray's "Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard," and Charles Wolfe's "Burial of Sir John Moore after Corunna." To conclude, the book considers W. E. Henley's "Invictus" and Rudyard Kipling's "If--," asking why the idea of the memorized poem arouses such different responses in the United States and Great Britain today. Focusing on vital connections between poems, individuals, and their communities, Heart Beats is an important study of the history and power of memorized poetry.

„Ängstlich in das Dunkel starrend blieb ich stehn, verwundert, harrend ...“ „Der Rabe“ brachte Edgar Allan Poe den Durchbruch als Lyriker. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht zählt bis heute zum unvergänglichen Erbe der Dichtkunst. In 108 Versen schildert er den mitternächtlichen Besuch eines Raben bei einem Verzweifelten, dessen Geliebte Lenore starb. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Elise von Hohenhausen findet sich hier neu interpretiert und illustriert von Marta Monika Czerwinski. Der Name steht für schaurige und düstere Abgründe: Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Wegbereiter des Symbolismus und Meister des subtilen Horrors. Poes Gedichte, Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten zählen zu den großen Werken seiner Zeit.

This is a book of thought-provoking conversant poetry speaking about how to 'deal with,' 'distance yourself,' and/or 'break away,' from negative-minded people who don't mean you well in life, and/or who prefer to live their lives with confusion, stupidity, ignorance, and ungodliness. Sadly, there are daughters & sons who've fallen victim to 'emotional blackmail' by a loved one who haven't wrestled nor confronted their own past demons for so long that its toll has become painfully burdensome. And no matter what you say or do, it's never enough, which is why it is so critical to "Preserve Your Sanity At All Cost," to increase the length of time of your existence on Earth to take care of self and your family! In this book you'll find that you (or someone else you know) are not alone when experiencing negative situations of any kind, which is why this subject of maintaining one's own sanity should be addressed publicly without candy-coating the truthfulness about negative human behavior.

In the underground labyrinths of New York City's subway system, beneath the third rail of a long forgotten line, Saul Williams discovered scrolls of aged yellowish-brown paper rolled tightly into a can of spray paint. His quest to decipher this mystical ancient text resulted in a primal understanding of the power hip-hop has to teach us about ourselves and the universe around us. Now, for the first time, Saul Williams shares with the world the wonder revealed to him by the Dead Emcee Scrolls. I have paraded as a poet for years now. In the proc ess of parading I may have actually become one, but that's another story, another book. This book is a book that I have been waiting to finish since 1995. This is the book that finished me. The story I am about to tell may sound fantastic. It may anger some of you who have followed my work. You may feel that you have come to know me over the years, and in some cases you have, but in others...well, this is a confession.

My name is Constance L. Aguero. The name of this book is, The Wounded Child, The girl the world forgot! this book consists of poetry that I have been writing since I was about eight years old. These poems express the feelings that this young survivor experienced at the hands of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. These poems talk about the abuse of my father, my uncle Walter, my uncle Raymond, my mother and her previous boyfriends, and my father's tricks that he brought home from the bar. I'm hoping that with me expressing my abuse through my poetry, that I can give a young or old person a chance at some hope. I decided that it was time for the world to know exactly what kind of people my abusers really were. I also figured this was my chance to tell my story, my way, without fearing what my abusers might think. This is my time to stand up and feel proud of the young woman I taught myself to be. My goals for writing this book are to let children know that it is not ok to be abused, that they should tell someone if they are. Also I want a chance to feel proud that I finally finished something that I set out to do. I believe that if people take time to trust their gut instincts that they will be able to find the appropriate treatment for their issues. If they do this, they will feel a huge change in how they feel about themselves.

Mit über 200.000 verkauften Exemplaren dominierte „Power – Die 48 Gesetze der Macht“ von Robert Greene monatelang die Bestsellerlisten. Nun erscheint der Klassiker als Kompaktausgabe: knapp, prägnant, unterhaltsam. Wer Macht haben will, darf sich nicht zu lange mit moralischen Skrupeln aufhalten. Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.
