William Butler Yeats remains one of the most popular poets of the 20th century. The Lake Isle of Inisfree, He wishes for the cloths of heaven, Down by the Salley Gardens, The secret rose - these are just a few of the poems that made William Butler Yeats an international figure. Born in Dublin in 1865, Yeats drew strength from the Irish tradition, as can be seen in this special audiobook, which presents the most important poems in the context of his life and ambitions. His poetic urgency was fueled by an active and varied life, as he gained his inspiration from the men and women he knew, classical sources and contemporary politics

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart by Jeremy Siepmann( Recording )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the most astonishing child prodigy in the history of music, is felt by many people to be the greatest composer who ever lived. Dominated and shaped by a highly intelligent but frustrated and ambitious father, his story sees the development of a unique genius, from precocious and often endearing childhood to liberated fulfillment, unexpected poverty, and a tragically early death. Generously illustrated by Mozart's music, from his fifth to his final year, this portrait-in-sound reveals a fascinating yet elusive character, drawing richly on the words of the composer himself and those who knew him. This is the ideal way to understand more about Mozart the man, and his music. Throughout his life, he wrote numerous letters - to his father and his friends and pupils - and his musical colleagues wrote about him. On this entertaining recording, with parts read by various actors, Mozart himself comes to life - with his sublime music ever-present as his career unfolds

Five days in May by Matthew Solon( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells the story of the tense negotiation that followed the 2010 general election, which led to Great Britain's first post-war coalition. Based on interviews with those who were at the meetings, political journalists and on published material--and using actors to play all the key characters--this is a compelling account of those five momentous days in May. Under extreme pressure and suffering from lack of sleep, the politicians argued and negotiated. There was nothing inevitable about a Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition. Revealing key moments of the negotiations, the drama unpicks what went on behind closed doors and shows how an alliance between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats gradually formed, and how it withstood the resignation of Gordon Brown
