    TRANSLATED BY W. ROBSON. WITH PREFACE AND SUPPLEMENTARY CHAPTER BY HAMILTON W. MABIE.Most know the purpose of the Crusades was the re-capture of Jerusalem by Christian forces from the sweeping Muslim victories of previous centuries and to protect pilgrimages to the Holy sites.Beginning with the 1st Crusade in 1096 and ending with the 9th (which is sometimes grouped with the 8th although it should be noted other expeditions both military and economic are sometimes were also called 'Crusades' and some re-numbering exists from the 5th Crusade onwards) in 1271 their history is a fascinating example of how disparate Western Nations under Papal authority (and sometimes lack of) allied and fought together. It is also a shocking example of how these same nations fought and squabbled amongst themselves most tragically in the 4th Crusade when it sacked Orthodox Christian Constantinople and later crusades when it fought in Egypt as a means to cut off supply lines to the Holy Land.Despite many early successes there were equally many failures.In these volumes the French historian Joseph Francois Michaud (1767-1839) examines and brings this centuries long series of engagements to historical review.

    The Short Stories Of RD Blackmore. The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. Blackmore was one to succeed as this audiobook ably demonstrates. Richard Doddridge Blackmore was born on 7 June 1825 at Longworth in Berkshire (now part of Oxfordshire), where his father, John Blackmore, was Curate-in-charge of the parish. His mother died a few months after his birth the victim of an outbreak of typhus. With this loss, the family moved to Bushey, Hertfordshire, then on to their native Devon. With much of his childhood spent in the lush and pastoral "e;Doone Country"e; of Exmoor, and along the Badgworthy Water, Blackmore came to love the very countryside he immortalised in Lorna Doone. In November 1853 he married his wife Lucy. And the following year, 1854, his literary career began with a collection of Poems and for the next 15 years he would write in the winters and garden in the summers. In 1860 with inherited money he built a house in Teddington just outside of London and established a market garden for the cultivation of fruit. He loved horticulture but having little business experience could never really exploit it. In these short stories collected here, much of that countryside comes through to counterpoint the strong characters he creates. RD Blackmore died at Teddington on 20 January 1900 after a long and painful illness, and was buried next to his wife in Teddington cemetery.

    The truth is, it ain't just a race thing. They talk like it is, but really and truly it's black against white, young against old, authorities against the rest. It's countless of things. There's bare reasons for feeling vexed right now. Growing up on a south London estate and excluded from every school that would take her, Alesha is the poster girl for the nation's 'feral youth'. When a young teacher makes an unexpected reappearance in the 15-year-old's life, opening the door to a world of salaries, pianos and middle-class housemates, Alesha's instinct is to pull up her hood and return to the streets. But fuelled by a need to survive, she falls into a cycle of crime, violence and drug-dealing, her one true ally deserting her when she needs him most. While everyone around her is rallying against the authorities in a war of haves and have-nots, Alesha finds herself caught in the crossfire, inextricably linked to the people she is trying to fight against. Can she see a way out? And as riots sweep the nation, whose side will she take?

    The Highland Journals Of Queen Victoria. Succeeding William IV in 1837, Victoria reigned for nearly 64 years and was always a keen chronicler of life around her, through both her paintings and the detailed diary she kept from the age of 13. Queen Victoria's highland Journals cover the period from 1848 to 1882 and provide a fascinating insight into those long 'never to be forgotten days' she spent with her family in her much beloved Scottish Highlands. Published privately for her family and a few close friends, the Queen was persuaded by a close relative to reissue the journal for the pleasure of her subjects where it became an immediate bestseller. The Highland Journals are gentle and unpretentious with a fascinating attention to detail, giving the listener a rare opportunity to hear the thoughts and reflections of the wife and mother who wore the Imperial Crown.

With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this series we look at the world through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a unique poetic guide to their lives. Thomas Hood was born in London in 1799. Leaving school at 14 he began at a counting house but his health being somewhat poor he took work at engraving. Again his health failed him and he was sent to relations in Scotland. Here, it is thought, began his interest in the outdoors and poetry. In 1821 he became the sub editor of the London Magazine and quickly became part of a wide and varied social scene. In 1824 he married Jane Reynolds and they had two children. Hood's work is streaked with humour. In his day some of his poems were translated for sale in Europe, an unusual occurrence but one that shows his reach and influence on the poetical scene. Many of his works are considered classics and he remains today as a highly regarded poet of the Victorian era. Thomas Hood died at the young age of 45 on the 3rd of May, 1845. A monument, paid for by public subscription was raised at Kensal Green Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe

    The Short Stories Of Rabindranath Tagore. The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel but it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. Rabindranth Tagore was one to succeed as this audiobook ably demonstrates. We venture to the East to meet the poet and story teller who speaks a common language of love and mysticism which continues to convey valuable insights into universal themes in contemporary society. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) who was a gifted Bengali Renaissance man, distinguishing himself as a philosopher, social and political reformer and a popular author in all literary genres. He was instrumental in an increased freedom for the press and influenced Gandhi and the founders of modern India. He composed hundreds of songs which are still sung today as they include the Indian and Bangladesh's national anthems. His prolific literary life has left a legacy of quality novels, essays and in this volume his shorter works. Gitanjali, one of his most famous works, earned him the distinction of being the first Asian writer to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.

    The Short Stories of Rudyard Kipling. Rudayrd Kipling was one of the most popular writers of prose and poetry in the late 19th and 20th century and awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1907. Born in Bombay on 30th December 1865 but, as was the custom of the British in India, he and his sister were sent back to England when he was 5. The ill treatment and cruelty by the couple who they boarded with in Portsmouth, Kipling himself suggested contributed to the onset of his literary life. This was further enhanced by his return to India at the age of 16 to work on a local paper as not only did this result in writing constantly but also made him explore issues of identity and national allegiance which pervade much of his work. Whilst he is best remembered for his classic children's stories and the popular poem If, he is also regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story. This audiobook provides fine example of this skill and is read by Ghizela Rowe and Richard Mitchley

To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail.

Although spending most of his life in England and France he spent two years in Australia from 1884 and that experience was to colour and influence much of his written works.

It is the cunning exploits of this intrepid character that this volume is based wonderfully brought to life by narrator, Richard Mitchley

    The Short Stories of James Fenimore Cooper. The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel but it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. James Fenimore Cooper was one to succeed creating miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. James Fenimore Cooper was born in Burlington, New Jersey on September 15, 1789. He lived most of his life in Cooperstown, New York (established by his father William). Although he attended Yale university, he was expelled and joined the US Navy as a Midshipman which was to provide much influence and research materials for his later writings. Although a Naval historian he is forever associated with one great book - Last Of The Mohicans. His output was prolific and included the famed Leatherstocking series. He was wildly popular as an author with his blend of history and romance. Here we bring you two of his short stories which are a fascinating insight to his view on life. He died of dropsy on September 14, 1851, the day before his 62nd birthday. Our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe

    Poet Laureates. Volume 2. The office of Poet Laureate is a high honour amongst poets. The Ancient Greeks had the first idea and their heroes and Poets wore wreaths of Laurel in honour of the god Apollo. Many countries now have a Laureate as do many societies and organisations. But perhaps ranked first among them all is that of our own Poet Laureate. Unfortunately no single authentic definitive record exists of the office of Poet Laureate of England. In some form it can be traced back to 1189 and Richard Canonicus who was employed by Richard I with the title "e;versificator Regis"e;. It is said that Geoffrey Chaucer was called Poet Laureate, being granted in 1389 an annual allowance of wine. After that there were a succession of 'volunteer Laureates'. It is not until 1617 that King James I created the post as it is known today for Ben Jonson, although it appears not to have been a formal appointment. That formality:- The title of Poet Laureate, as a royal office, was first conferred by letters patent on John Dryden in 1670 And from there we have procession of outstanding poets among them William Wordsworth, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Alfred Austin.

    The Poetry Of Amy Lowell. Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that the English language has produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this volume we look at the works of the American poet Amy Lowell. She was born into the prominent Lowell family in Brookline Massachusetts in 1874. Although her brother was to become President of Harvard she never entered college, her family considering it not proper for a woman. However she loved books and was an avid reader and collector. A socialite she travelled widely and first began to publish in 1910. Thought to be a lesbian the erotic themes within several of her poems are a wonderful loving tribute and exploration of her relationships. She published other poets and was working on a biography of the poet John Keats which brought forth the wonderful line "e;The stigma of oddness is the price a myopic world always exacts of genius"e;. In becoming a major figure in the Imagist movement she clashed with Erza Pound frequently. In 1925 she died of a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 51. The following year, she won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for What's O'Clock. This volume of her poems is read by Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe

    The Poetry Of Hell - An Introduction. It is often said that two things are unavoidable; Death and Taxes. Certainly the latter is a common thorn in adult life but as to the former it seems that for many people it is merely a hiccup in Life's eternal journey. A journey they wish, if being of good deed and character, to share at the eternity of Heaven's largesse, a reward for Faith and the obligations of Religion. Of course for those not so fortunate an altogether different experience was prepared for them; Hell. Its nightmare visions so terrifying conjured up by Dante, Milton, Blake, Baudelaire and many others. If Faith is your companion it is a very realistic world to avoid. As though gathered here will testify in their rich verse. Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe

A journey they wish, if being of good deed and character, to share at the eternity of Heaven's largesse, a reward for Faith and the obligations of Religion. Of course for those not so fortunate an altogether different experience was prepared for them; Hell. For those who take religion as their companion Heaven conjures up all manner of eternal delights.

    The Poetry Of Trees. Although there is no definitive definition we all know what they are. At their most magisterial they can reach hundreds of feet into the air and be thousands of years old. But for many the visual structure they bring to our landscape in all their various heights and colours; their contribution to the seasons - stark branches, vivid leaves at birth and death is how we relate to them. For the poets here in this collection trees are a source of inspiration and give us much to contemplate

    The Poetry Of Flowers - An Introduction. The simple beauty of a single flower has the power to fascinate, captivate and delight us. Its fragrance can intoxicate and it remains a wonderful gift to give or receive.

    The Novelists As Poet. An Introduction. Novelists stake their claim as artists on works that encapsulate a whole world of characters and narrative across many, usually hundreds of pages. Some also take in other disciplines; plays, short stories, essays but many have also written poetry. For some it is even their first love but for their audience it is too often forgotten; relegated behind their longer works. Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, The Brontes, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy are but a few of our illustrious authors who here reveal works every bit as tender, as expansive and just as good as their longer forms of work. Each would make a fine poet in their own right. We're glad to be able to bring you another side to these incredible talents. Our readers include Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe

    The Romantics - Volume 2 - An Introduction. Romanticism was a new movement in philosophy and the arts that began in the late 18th century when major political events shook the world such as the French Revolution and American Independence. It marked a distinct contrast to the prevailing Enlightenment ideals and in poetry represented a more personal intuitive, emotional and meditative expression with a back to nature imperative. It subsequently altered the way in which we perceive poetry and beyond as well as defining our own modern sensibilities to the arts. The Romantic poets who were central to this movement are traditionally characterised as the Big Six, namely Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley and Byron. However, as these volumes show, there are women poets who are often overlooked and these include Mary Shelley, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Joanna Baillie and Charlotte Smith. Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe. In this volume we collect together WS Landor to William Wordswoth

    Georgian Poetry An Introduction. As a poetical movement Georgian Poetry is easy to classify. It began naturally enough in 1910 when George V ascended to the throne of England. Edward Marsh, a civil servant, polymath and arts patron decided that the verse of that time needed to be seen in its own right and from 1912 - 1922 set out to publish anthologies. Marsh agreed a deal with the poet and bookseller Harold Munro, who had recently opened The Poetry Bookshop in London's Devonshire Street to publish the books in return for a share of the profits. Five volumes spanning some forty poets ranging from Rupert Brooke to GK Chesterton and DH Lawrence were published over the years and remain today the encyclopaedia of this poetical period. In this volume you will find the best work of the Georgian Poets.
