The Making of Poetry: Coleridge, the Wordsworths and Their Year of Marvels [EPUB]

The Making of Poetry: Coleridge, the Wordsworths and Their Year of Marvels [EPUB]
The Making of Poetry: Coleridge, the Wordsworths and Their Year of Marvels by Adam Nicolson
2019 | EPUB | ISBN: 0374200211 | 44.58MB

Wordsworth and Coleridge as you've never seen them before in this new book by Adam Nicolson, brimming with poetry, art and nature writing. Proof that poetry can change the world. It is the most famous year in English poetry. Out of it came The Ancient Mariner and 'Kubla Khan', as well as Coleridge's unmatched hymns to friendship and fatherhood, Wordsworth's revolutionary verses in Lyrical Ballads and the greatness of 'Tintern Abbey', his paean to the unity of soul and cosmos, love and understanding.

Bestselling and award-winning writer Adam Nicolson tells the story, almost day by day, of the year in the late 1790s that Coleridge, Wordsworth, his sister Dorothy and an ever-shifting cast of friends, dependants and acolytes spent together in the Quantock Hills in Somerset. To a degree never shown before, The Making of Poetry explores the idea that these poems came from this place, and that only by experiencing the physical circumstances of the year, in all weathers and all seasons, at night and at dawn, in sunlit reverie and moonlit walks, can the genesis of the poetry start to be understood.

What emerges is a portrait of these great figures as young people, troubled, ambitious, dreaming of a vision of wholeness, knowing they had greatness in them but still in urgent search of the paths towards it. The poetry they made was not from settled conclusions but from the adventure on which they were all embarked, seeing what they wrote as a way of stripping away all the dead matter, exfoliating consciousness, penetrating its depths. Poetry for them was not an ornament for civilisation but a challenge to it, a means of remaking the world.

Begin the Begin: R.E.M.'s Early Years [EPUB]

Begin the Begin: R.E.M.'s Early Years [EPUB]
Begin the Begin: R.E.M.'s Early Years by Robert Dean Lurie
2019 | EPUB | ISBN: 1891241680 | 7.92MB

Robert Dean Lurie's biography is the first completely researched and written since R.E.M. disbanded in 2011. It offers by far the most detailed account of their formative years—the early lives of the band members, their first encounters with one another, their legendary debut show, touring out of the back of a van, initial recordings, their shrewdly paced rise to fame.

The people and places of 'the South' are crucial to the R.E.M. story in ways much more complex and interesting than have been presented thus far, says Lurie, who explores the myriad ways in which the band's adopted hometown of Athens, Georgia, and the South in general, have shaped its members and the character and style of their art. The South is more than the background to this story; it plays a major role: the creative ferment that erupted in Athens and gripped many of its young inhabitants in the late 70s and early 80s drew on regional traditions of outsider art and general cultural out-thereness, and gave rise to a free-spirited music scene that produced the B-52's and Pylon, and laid the ground for R.E.M.'s subsequent breakout success.

Lurie has tracked down and interviewed numerous figures in the band's history who were under-represented in or even absent from earlier biographies, and they contribute previously undocumented stories as well as casting a fresh light on the familiar narrative.

Simón Bolívar: A Life [EPUB]

Simón Bolívar: A Life [EPUB]
Simón Bolívar: A Life by John Lynch
2019 | EPUB | ISBN: 0300110626 | 4.2MB

The "impeccably researched, uncommonly honest, and . . . very well written" biography of the nineteenth century Venezuelan military and political leader (Alvaro Vargas Llosa, New Republic).

Simón Bolívar was a revolutionary who freed six South American countries from Spanish Imperial rule, an intellectual who argued the principles of national liberation, and a statesman who led the governments of Venezuela, Gran Colombia, Bolivia, and Peru. His life, passions, and battles were woven into Spanish American culture almost as soon as they happened. In the first major English-language biography of "The Liberator" in half a century, John Lynch draws on extensive research to understand Bolívar's life in the context of his own society and times, and to explore his remarkable and enduring legacy.

Simón Bolívar illuminates the man's inner world, the dynamics of his leadership, his power to command, and his modes of ruling the diverse peoples of Spanish America. The key to his greatness, Lynch concludes, was his ability to inspire people to follow him beyond their immediate interests, in some cases through years of unremitting struggle. Encompassing Bolívar's entire life and his many accomplishments, this is the definitive account of a towering figure in the history of the Western hemisphere.

Tipping Points: How to Topple the Left's House of Cards [EPUB]

Tipping Points: How to Topple the Left's House of Cards [EPUB]
Tipping Points: How to Topple the Left's House of Cards by Liz Wheeler
2019 | EPUB | ISBN: 1621579255 | 2.14MB

The Left is on the attack, and the war for our country is at a crucial tipping point.

Liberals know they're within reach of radically transforming America. They don't like the U.S. Constitution. They're allergic to Americans' "gun culture." They find our faith and our devotion to family distasteful. And our commitment to liberty positively sends them into a panic.

As soon as the Democrats get power anywhere, they stand ready to throw our God-given rights under the bus of political correctness, transgender insanity, and socialism (the economic system that always promises equality and utopia, but somehow always delivers resentment, poverty, and decay). So how can we tip the momentum back in our favor? How can we fight effectively for freedom, the U.S. Constitution, limited government, faith and family, and the survival of the American Republic?

Liz Wheeler to the rescue! The popular host of One America News Network's "Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler" is a brilliant and highly effective debater who shows how we can go on the rhetorical attack against the Left—and win—with a multi-technique program for catching the Left in their inconsistencies and under-handed schemes and skewering them for their bold-faced lies.

In Tipping Points: How to Topple the Left's House of Cards, Liz Wheeler identifies the five "Tipping Points" where liberals are poised to win, trains you in her proven debating techniques, and deputizes you to take up arms in the fight for our nation's heart and soul.

It's training you need right now, today. Our country is at a tipping point. And make no mistake—if the Left isn't defeated, they're taking down America.

The Mosquito: A Human History of Our Deadliest Predator [Audiobook]

The Mosquito: A Human History of Our Deadliest Predator [Audiobook]
The Mosquito: A Human History of Our Deadliest Predator [Audiobook] by Timothy C Winegard, read by Mark Deakins
2019 | MP3@64 kbps + EPUB | 19h 7m | 526.03MB

A pioneering and groundbreaking work of narrative nonfiction that offers a dramatic new perspective on the history of humankind, showing how through millennia, the mosquito has been the single most powerful force in determining humanity's fate

Why was gin and tonic the cocktail of choice for British colonists in India and Africa? What does Starbucks have to thank for its global domination? What has protected the lives of popes for millennia? Why did Scotland surrender its sovereignty to England? What was George Washington's secret weapon during the American Revolution?

The answer to all these questions, and many more, is the mosquito.

Across our planet since the dawn of humankind, this nefarious pest, roughly the size and weight of a grape seed, has been at the frontlines of history as the grim reaper, the harvester of human populations, and the ultimate agent of historical change. As the mosquito transformed the landscapes of civilization, humans were unwittingly required to respond to its piercing impact and universal projection of power.

The mosquito has determined the fates of empires and nations, razed and crippled economies, and decided the outcome of pivotal wars, killing nearly half of humanity along the way. She (only females bite) has dispatched an estimated 52 billion people from a total of 108 billion throughout our relatively brief existence. As the greatest purveyor of extermination we have ever known, she has played a greater role in shaping our human story than any other living thing with which we share our global village.

Imagine for a moment a world without deadly mosquitoes, or any mosquitoes, for that matter? Our history and the world we know, or think we know, would be completely unrecognizable.

Driven by surprising insights and fast-paced storytelling, The Mosquito is the extraordinary untold story of the mosquito's reign through human history and her indelible impact on our modern world order.
