A Middle English Iliad: John Lydgate’s Troy Book: A Modern Translation (The Troy Myth in Medieval Britain Book 1)

by D M Smith

In medieval Britain, the works of Homer were practically unknown. In his absence, the half-remembered story of the Trojan War took on a distinctly Arthurian flavour, with the heroes Achilles and Hector reimagined as armoured knights on horseback, duelling with broadsword and lance.

In 1412 the Prince of Wales commissioned John Lydgate, monk of Bury St. Edmunds Abbey and literary heir of Chaucer, to write him an English epic to rival those in the French and Latin. The result was Troy Book: 30,000 lines of decasyllabic rhyming couplets, completed in 1420 and dedicated to its patronâ??now King Henry V. Lydgate’s primary source was the Latin prose Historia Destructionis Troiae of Guido delle Colonne, with supplementary material provided by Ovid, Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde, as well as a variety of obscure Late Latin texts, such as Isidore of Seville’s Etymologiae, and the Mythologiae of Fulgentius.

With this edition Troy Book receives its first translation into Modern English, allowing a new generation of readers to view the Trojan War through the eyes of a fifteenth-century Briton. D. M. Smith includes a detailed introduction tracing the development of the Troy myth from the Cyclic Poets to Lydgate and beyond, along with extensive notes on Lydgate’s sources, and the narrative’s relationship with the established Graeco-Roman mythology. Long dismissed as a medieval curiosity, Troy Book is at last restored to its proper context in the literary evolution of the Ancient Greek Epic Cycle.



This is America

by Ross

Why do the police use us as target practice?

Why does it seem like the world hates us?

Why are preachers, still teaching us a false image of Christ?

Why are black men quick to kill each other, but will forgive others for the enslavement of their own people?

What happen to the morals of our women?

Why do they call us African, Latino, or Native American, when they KNOW we are the real chidren of Israel?

All the answers to your questions, and more reside inside THIS BOOK!



Remixed: The Poetic Mixtape

by Kiara Benejan-Curry

Remixed: A new or different version of media which has been altered from its original state by putting its different components in a different way.

You have come across a remix. An altered state of poetry. Of dialogue. Of storytelling. An altered perspective of a universal feeling…love. Self-Love. Love in a relationship. Love for the family. For identity. For our mental states. As you read this book, you will come through the early morning with me and read the intimate moments of my interactions with this feeling of love. This work, however, is not a narrative of my life but the unspoken narrative of everyone who has interacted with this feeling in any way. I wrote this for you. Only because I am sure you could relate. This is only a remix of your story…

“Remixed: The Poetic Mixtape” written by Kiára is a book comprised of a collection of poetry, dialogue, and affirmations around the idea of love. This love translates into relational love, self-love, family love, love for the identity, etc. With artistic creativity, this book comprises beautiful graphics and visuals along with stories written in the form of mostly poetry. This is a book that everyone can relate to no matter race or gender to gain not only life lessons but appreciate artistic form. This book was written for you.



How to Grow a Garden

by The Rose

This is a six-chapter emotional word journey of how The Rose grew a garden from the painful flowers life has given her in the form of abuse, heartbreak, death, depression, pain, mental illness, and trauma. She numbed herself, stumbling through life collecting broken relationships- breaking in the process until one day she awakened needing to speak. Reveling in her sexual identity and love of words she also began embracing her racial identity. This process is the art you see here, but it is not solely for herself. Her wish is to begin to heal by embracing the power of words thus defining the human experience; emotions.

Crying On The Shower Floor

by Rory Philips

I started writing this book during the worst mental breakdown I have ever had. I picked up a pen, and a notebook, and it all just came pouring out over the next twelve months. This is about depression, anxiety, emptiness, love, and repressed memories.

I wrote this book when I was struggling with imposter syndrome, and suicidal ideation. Since I started writing this, I’ve been to therapy, and learned to open up more to friends, and loved ones about these thoughts, and feelings. In doing so, I’ve learned it’s more common than you might think, or would ever want to believe.

I’m writing this, because it gets better, and sometimes the best catalyst for change, is realizing your shortcomings, and the times you’ve been toxic. This is ultimately a book about hope, and maybe it will help you, the same way writing it has helped me.

5-Stars – Beautifully written and thought-provoking book of poetry, The amount of time, effort, passion, pain and emotion poured into this collection is strikingly clear… I found these poems incredibly moving and felt in some way, without sounding too corny, that I was looking through the writer’s window to his soul.

Tricky Soul

by Sara Wilson

The tales are slightly dark, slightly spiritual, some have a modern twist with a tick to past lives. We have lived past lives and will go on to live future lives. Past lives can span centuries of time and some stories reflect this truth.
We love, we laugh, and there is sometimes sadness. We are all vulnerable. There are magnificent twists and miracles that do and can happen. This has always been the case.

Let the journey begin.



Seven

by Antonio J. Hopson

It has been said that there are only seven stories to tell: overcoming the monster, rags to riches, voyage and return, the quest, comedy, tragedy and rebirth.
7 is a collection of each of these different ways to tell a story, using the medium of poetry to entertain the reader, with an intuitive contemplation of life and observations.
There is a graceful feel to the work; sometimes written with humor, sometimes purely carnal and occasionally with a tinge of sadness, it is a book which will open wounds and then lovingly tend them again.
With offering such as the thoughtful, â??Men Like Me’ or the short and snappy â??A Kiss’ you will find that each one tells its own story and each one can stand alone, while still contributing to the overall feel of the book.
This is a stunning collection, written in a thought-provoking hue, by a man who has a distinct and easy style. If you love poetry and enjoy being immersed in the thoughts of someone who has experienced life in all its raw forms, then 7 is something you should not miss.



White Words

by Mansidak Singh

Poetry is nothing but depicting the feelings and messages in a way one wants, in form of words. We gain experience, learn lessons, and try to make others learn the same by it. Poetry is one of the most beautiful inventions of humans, which allows us to open our thoughts and views in a romantic manner. Our love with words dates back to ages. These words, indeed, have lives. Each and every word has its life and use. Once said, neither can they be returned, and once read, nor can they be forgotten. Poetry involves use of words in a very constructive manner which finally results in a beautiful composition we call a â??Poem’.

White Words is a Collection of Poems written by a teenager Mansidak Singh. These poems revolve around concepts like Life Motivation, Youth, Death, Love and contemporary world problems.

“In my eyes, I store these,
Hoping, they don’t cease.
Tell me, can you write these feelings?
Apart form words, they are my healing.

Sentences billions, if written about,
Feelings millions, without a doubt.
I can’t describe them in words,
No matter, how hard I shout.”

– Excerpt from ’80 Words’
