Doors to Paradise: Poems for the Soul is Ajit Sripad Rao Nalkur’s fourth book of poetry, and it follows his previously published trilogy on love. His poems are an invitation for our souls to discover what lies behind each door we encounter in life. The author experienced intense joy, peace, and freedom as he wrote these poems—emotions he hopes to share with all. The poems in this collection are arranged in chronological order and written in various rhyming styles. The poems were created as spontaneous outbursts of the soul, and in the reading of them, the author hopes that the reader’s heart will similarly open and receive the emotions they convey. Like doorways into the author’s soul, Doors to Paradise: Poems for the Soul reflects the peace and contentment in his life now. The Muse Forever poised on the brink of a poem, patiently waiting for the Muse to rise or fall from the skies, the poet’s eye looks out onto the fields of paradise left vacant of her presence. He looks for her in his heart and sees that she indeed is the one thing he needs and wants; a window is flung open, a door beckons, the house of the soul welcomes him home ...
Brian Friel is Ireland's foremost living playwright, whose work spans fifty years and has won numerous awards, including three Tonys and a Lifetime Achievement Arts Award. Author of twenty-five plays, and whose work is studied at GCSE and A level (UK), and the Leaving Certificate (Ire), besides at undergraduate level, he is regarded as a classic in contemporary drama studies. Christopher Murray offers the definitive guide to Friel's work; both a detailed study of individual plays and an exploration of Friel's dual commitment to tradition and modernity across his oeuvre. Beginning with Friel's 1964 work Philadelphia, Here I Come! it follows a broadly chronological route through the principle plays, including Aristocrats, Faith Healer, Translations, Dancing at Lughnasa, Molly Sweeney and The Home Place. Along the way it considers themes of exile, politics, fathers and sons, belief and ritual, history, memory, gender inequality, and loss, all set against the dialectic of tradition and modernity.
Annotation Each volume provides substantive critical essays and biographical information on four to eight major poets from all eras. A cumulative title index to the entire series is published separately (included in subscription).
The title of the book, "The Holiness of the Real," is a key phrase from "Time Is the Mercy of Eternity," one of Rexroth's finest nature-meditation poems. The phrase underscores the essence of Rexroth's work at its best - his capacity to meditate on, celebrate, and articulate love, nature, and political experience with a unique numinosity. Reading his work, one comes to realize that what is real or authentic, rather than being marginal or preternatural, is everyday and "normal," but "normal" in the visionary sense in which the diurnal and customary are perceived by someone who has undergone a revelation or "shock of recognition." What Rexroth's most accomplished verse and poetry convey is this recognition of how profound, stirring, and contenting the fundamental rounds of life and experience can be, despite living in what Raymond Aron has termed the "century of total war." The book is divided into six chapters. The first, following a preface, is a general introduction to Rexroth, covering his career and cultural position in American society, his prosody, influences on his verse, theorizing on his poetics, and speculation about why he has been ignored by the literary canon makers in academe and elsewhere. The next four chapters deal with large and basic subject categories in Rexroth's verse: nature, political, love, and love-nature verse. The final chapter provides an overview of Rexroth as a literary and social critic-journalist, amplifying the sense of his scope as an intellect and personality. A brief conclusion follows.
St Andrews is renowned for its ecclesiastical ruins, ancient university and proud distinction as ‘the home of golf’. Some say the town deserves far more recognition for its paranormal activity and links. In 1911, W.T. Linskill penned the original edition of St Andrews Ghost Stories, of which this is the 4th edition printed in 1921. In this edition he recounts 17 spine-tingling, ghostly stories associated with the historic town in Fife, Scotland. Most seem to have a religious connection to the Cathedral ruins with the ghosts of Priors , Monks, Veiled Nuns and screaming skulls. In addition to an introductory poem, titled Ghosts and Phantoms, in this volume you will find the stories of: The Beckoning Monk The Hauntings And Mysteries Of Lausdree Castle A Haunted Manor House And The Duel At St Andrews The Apparition Of The Prior Of Pittenweem A True Tale Of The Phantom Coach The Veiled Nun Of St Leonards The Monk Of St Rule’s Tower Related By Captain Chester The Screaming Skull Of Greyfriars The Spectre Of The Castle The Smothered Piper Of The West Cliffs The Beautiful White Lady Of The Haunted Tower Concerning More Appearances Of The White Lady A Spiritualistic Seance The Apparition Of Sir Rodger De Wanklyn The Bewitched Ermentrude A Very Peculiar House The stories of the “White Lady”, first in her haunted tower, and other sightings around St. Andrews are of particular interest. Does the White Lady still haunt St Andrews; when was the last sighting of her? Well you will simply have to visit St Andrews and find out for yourself. If you do visit, be sure to tale the St Andrews Ghost Tour. We would also like to know if the story of “The Apparition Of Sir Rodger De Wanklyn” was the inspiration for “Nearly Headless Nick”, played by John Cleese, in J K Rowling’s Harry Potter films. Who knows? This maybe a connection that the author wishes to remain a secret. Oh, and while you’re in Scotland, be sure to visit Nether Lochaber. Why you ask? If you do make it to Nether Lochaber, go to the Fairy Hill, for it is said you may hear the music of fairies with your own ears. But you must go on a fine day…… YESTERDAY'S BOOKS FOR TODAY'S CHARITIES 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities ---------------------------- KEYWORDS/TAGS: fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children’s stories, children’s stories, bygone era, Linskill, St Andrews Ghost Stories, ghosts, gouls, 17 stories, spine-tingling, hair raising, Beckoning Monk, Haunting, Mystery, Lausdree Castle, Haunted Manor House, Duel At St Andrews, Apparition, Prior Of Pittenweem, Phantom Coach, Veiled Nun, St Leonards, Monk, St Rule’s Tower, Captain Chester, Screaming Skull, Greyfriars, Spectre, Castle, Smothered Piper, West Cliffs, Beautiful White Lady, Haunted Tower, Spiritualistic, Séance, Sir Rodger De Wanklyn, Bewitched Ermentrude, Peculiar House, Harry potter, J K Rowling, Nether Lochaber, Fairy Hill, music, cold,
