The Faerie Queene : The Reader's Library,Volume 16

By: Edmund Spenser; Neil Azevedo, Editor

Edmund Spenser (1552?-1599) was an English Renaissance poet often considered to be the foremost poet of his time by many of his contemporaries. His early career, much like Virgil's, was spent writing pastoral and elegiac verse, but The Faerie Queene is his masterpiece, an unfinished allegorical epic intended to depict Aristotle's twelve moral virtues (twelve also being the number of books subsequently divided into twelve cantos for a proper epic), though he was only able...

I Lo! I the man, whose Muse whylome did maske, As time her taught, in lowly shephards weeds, Am now enforst, a farre unfitter taske, For trumpets sterne to chaunge mine oaten reeds, And sing of knights and ladies gentle deeds; Whose praises having slept in silence long, Me, all too meane, the sacred Muse areeds To blazon broade emongst her learned throng: Fierce warres and faithfull loves shall moralize my song. II Helpe then, O holy virgin, chiefe of nyne, ...

Aquarelle for Bulgaria

By: Mrs. Mrs. Marlena Stoyanova Yurukova; Marlena Stoyanova Yurukova, Illustrator

A haiku-like three-line poems that accompany watercolor landscapes presenting the beautiful nature and historical sites of Bulgaria.

The village- a beehive, buzzing silence. *** The demolished tomb- uncapped, overrun with weeds knocking on Heaven’s door. *** Underwood scratched you. A stone tripped you up. Wild is the wood, a fairy-land.

Nine Poems : Volume 1

By: Ankur Mutreja

Complex are the ways of life. Difficult it is to describe them in Black & White. Emotions are many; Words are few. And those who know them are far and few Life is a book of poems; And this is mine. Beautiful or ugly, you determine.

Standing frail, she diffused her smell far and wide. Not a man who was not attracted to this beauty of fairies. Not a man who didn’t wish to appropriate her for self. But her misty eyes were still poignant for love. For which vulnerability, the men staged duals a plenty. Yet she remained Virgin, for none had the limbs enough. The luxury of choice she didn't have, But her heart plotted a rebel nevertheless. An evening clouded the Sun of the West. When the soun...

In The Arms of Darkness

By: Qazi Raza

In this book I have tried to express my feelings, desires, passions and emotions on topics very rarely discussed in society. In the past two years I have seen new faces of our world, the faces generally neglected by us; and in this book I have recorded my thoughts on all such topics.

Call Upon Hope I cast a net, into the sea, I cast a net to catch some dreams; The sea wouldn’t let me free, So I cast a net to catch some dreams; I tried to grasp, the light of the sun, I tried to shine, like the moon; Although the moon, lies in heaven, I tried to shine, like the moon; The sun set me ablaze, And the moon, was nothing but dust; I was looked upon, with an envious gaze, Borne by the sons of lust; When nations left my side, And hate was given b...

Complete Poems in English : The Reader's Library, Volume 15

By: George Herbert; Neil Azevedo, Editor

George Herbert, 1593 – 1633, was a British poet whose work has become increasing significant in the English language poetic. Influenced greatly by the metaphysical conceits of John Donne, Herbert applied the ideas of extended and imaginative metaphors infused with a highly precise language to create musical lyrics—Herbert had a great love and knowledge of music—that were entirely devoted to his Christian beliefs. While politically ambitious as a young man, Herbert fully ...

The Pulley When God at first made Man, Having a glasse of blessings standing by; Let us (said he) poure on him all we can: Let the worlds riches, which dispersed lie, Contract into a span. So strength first made a way; Then beautie flow’d, then wisdome, honour, pleasure: When almost all was out, God made a stay, Perceiving that alone of all his treasure Rest in the bottome lay. ...

This is a collection of Filipino (with some English) poetry. Most of them don't have titles and may require some knowledge or information about Philippine society and culture. I have categorized these under the subject Religion primarily because many of the poems are Christian or even Catholic in nature although quite a number are reflections about life both personal and societal.

Collected Poems of William Wordsworth : Volume 14

By: William Wordsworth; Neil Azevedo, Editor

The Collected Poems of William Wordsworth collects the entirety of Wordsworth's verse, presenting it more or less chronologically and, as carefully as possible, the way was intended to be heard by the author, complete with the variety of word emphases that have been either represented by scare quotes or italics.

“The world is too much with us; late and soon, Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers: Little we see in Nature that is ours; We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon! The Sea that bares her bosom to the moon; The winds that will be howling at all hours, And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers; For this, for everything, we are out of tune; It moves us not.—Great God! I’d rather be A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn; So might I, standing on this ...

Selected Masterpieces of Polish Poetry : translated from the Polis...

By: Jarek Zawadzki, Translator

The selection of poems in this anthology may seem a bit unorthodox for Polish literature experts. I have no degree or expertise in any sort of literary research, which may well be the reason for my bizarre taste as presented here. I have tried my very best to include mainly those poems that are obligatory readings in Polish high schools, so that the English Reader can have the chance to get to know a portion of the choicest Polish poetry that an average Pole has willy-ni...

To the Young by Adam Asnyk (1838–1897) The brightening flame of truth pursue, Seek to discover ways no human knows. With every secret now revealed to you, The soul of man expands within the new. And God still bigger grows! Although you may the flowers of myths remove, Although you may the fabulous dark disperse, And tear the mist of fancy from above; There’ll be no shortage of new things to love, Farther in the universe. Each epoch has its special goa...

A Child's Garden of Verses : The Reader's Library, 13

By: Robert Louis Stevenson; Neil Azevedo, Editor

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was worn in Edinburgh, Scotland, and suffered from frail health all through childhood, an affliction that would follow him into adulthood and manifest itself ultimately as tuberculosis. He initially set out to be a lawyer and was admitted to the bar in 1875, though he never practiced. He is best known for his tales Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, though he wrote a number of other stories, excellent es...

The Land of Nod From breakfast on through all the day At home among my friends I stay, But every night I go abroad Afar into the land of Nod.   All by myself I have to go, With none to tell me what to do— All alone beside the streams And up the mountain-sides of dreams.   The strangest things are there for me, Both things to eat and things to see, And many frightening sights abroad Till morning in the land of Nod.   Try as I like to find the way, I nev...

Collected Poems of Alexander Pope : The Reader's Library, Volume 12

By: Alexander Pope; Neil Azevedo, Editor

Alexander Pope (1688-1744) is widely considered to be the best poet of the Augustan age, and perhaps English verse’s best satirist ever. Pope was mostly self-taught having been denied a formal protestant education because of his family’s Roman Catholic beliefs; he also suffered from the effects of Pott’s disease his entire life, which left him deformed and of small stature never growing past the height of four feet six inches. Despite these challenges, Pope flourished in...

from "Essay on Criticism" “Tis hard to say if greater want of skill Appear in writing or in judging ill; But of the two less dangerous is th’ offence To tire our patience than mislead our sense: Some few in that, but numbers err in this; Ten censure wrong for one who writes amiss; A fool might once himself alone expose; Now one in verse makes many more in prose.     ’Tis with our judgments as our watches, none Go just alike, yet each believes his own. In Poe...
