A possessively, melancholically, beautiful poetry book of gentle pain, serene darkness, intense voyages on the sea of existence, paranormally passionate, mesmerizingly mysterious, and wickedly good. Unveil the wisdom in your heart, release the chains of worldly captivity, see the realm beyond reach, discover the magick here to teach. Spare a moment to lie in this chasm of darkened truth. Melt awhile to flow into this graveyard of gothic delight, haunt with me in this realm of surmise... drink with me the real essence of life.

Annah Browning's poetry collection Witch Doctrine is a gothic instruction manual for how to exist in a heartbreaking world. Through a series of spell poems and a cast of haunting personas--including a sentient house, a mentoring witch, and a housekeeping ghost--Browning leads the reader in dark and slyly humorous mediations on mortality, loss, feminist power, and survival: "you'll take / another branch for the fire / and you will make it."

Fireside Poems for Halloween Night

This collection of Gothic poetry includes 84 samplings from the masters of the genre: Poe, Dickinson, Coleridge, Shelley, Byron, Keats, Goethe, Frost, Burns, Milton, Pushkin, and more.

Poetry has always dabbled in the dark-side of life - literally always. Our earliest poetry was obsessed with monsters, murder, horror, and hauntings. "The Epic of Gilgamesh," "The Iliad," "The Odyssey," "Beowulf," "The Inferno," "Ovid's Metamorphoses," "The Faerie Queene," and "La Morte d'Arthur" all involve sorcery, monsters, and the macabre. This collection of Gothic poetry includes 84 samplings from the masters of the genre: Poe, Dickinson, Coleridge, Shelley, Byron, Keats, Goethe, Frost, Burns, Milton, Pushkin, and more. These poems range from epics ("The Rime of the Ancient Mariner") to a few lines ("Theme in Yellow"), and span in time from the Elizabethan Age to the Great Depression. They deal with ghostly abductions, soul-crushing curses, shapeshifting seducers, brutal goblin hordes, atmospheric nightscapes, ghost-plagued houses, merciless witches, lustful vampires and yes - a couple poems about black cats and jack-o-lanterns. While most were originally written in English, many have been translated from German, French, Russian, Middle English, and Scots, bringing together a cross-cultural exploration of human anxieties, fantasies, and nightmares. In the meantime, we offer this little volume of verse to read on cold autumn nights - perchance with a glass of mulled wine at your elbow, by the pallid flicker of a blood-red candle dripping down the skull on your desk.

Gothic Tales Dark Poetry

Gothic Tales  Dark Poetry

If you have ever felt the itch to read poetry out loud by candle light, while the wind howls outside your window, Gothic Tales is the collection for you.

As a natural born poet since the age of seven, Jody LaGreca has a deep affinity for poetic form and dark fiction. GOTHIC TALES contains an assortment of Narrative Poems that flow like the storybook from hell. The poems are literary, sophisticated, forthright and gruesomely picturesque at times. The book is divided into five parts; the first section contains vampire poems that are gory yet evocative, with darkly romantic blood drinking, and tongue and cheek scenarios. Part Two is comprised of Halloween horror with the wiles of witches and the haunting of ghosts, who steal our dreams and waking hours. Part Three is hauntingly gruesome, involving thought provoking scenarios straight from the underworld. Part Four contains sagas involving death and threat. Part Five showcases an ensemble of graveside scenarios and the eeriness of reality. GOTHIC TALES is for lovers of the macabre and unexpected with an ironic twist to incite and inspire.Acclaim for GOTHIC TALES: "As I read GOTHIC TALES by Jody R. LaGreca, I imagined the author, draped in a black silk cape, writing these poems with a raven's quill under a full moon. The tone is lush, darkly romantic, and filled with macabre exuberance. Be sure to pick up a bottle of red wine to sip while you're reading this deliciously Gothic collection!"-- Mark McLaughlin, Bram Stoker Award winner for Best Poetry Collection"Jody R. LaGreca's Gothic Tales is a great collection of ballads: an equal mixture of the macabre and the beautiful. If you have ever felt the itch to read poetry out loud by candle light, while the wind howls outside your window, Gothic Tales is the collection for you."--Michael Walker, Author of "The Vampire Henry""Close your eyes and let Jody LaGreca lead you through the dark maze of Gothic Tales: Dark Poetry. It doesn't matter what strange and scary creatures you'll encounter on this darkly surreal sojourn: headless henchmen, hiding ghosts, flying witches, thirsty vampires, ghouls with golden teeth, screams or silence, skeletons or in the flesh, because along the way, Jody LaGreca whispers elegant words in your ear, encouraging you to journey into the dark places that chill your bones. Highly recommended!" --Michael McCarty, 5-Time Bram Stoker Finalist and author of Modern Mythmakers, A Little Help From My Fiends and co-author of Dracula Transformed and Lost Girl of The Lake

Percy Bysshe Shelley The Witch of Atlas Other Longer Poems

Percy Bysshe Shelley   The Witch of Atlas   Other Longer Poems

Shelley is one of the most revered figures in the English poetical landscape. Born on the 4th August 1792 he has, over the years, become rightly regarded as a major Romantic poet. Yet during his own lifetime little of his work was published. Publishers feared his radical views and possible charges against themselves for blasphemy and sedition. On 8th July 1822 a month before his 30th birthday, during a sudden storm, his tragic early death by drowning robbed our culture of many fine expected masterpieces. But in his short spell on earth he weaved much magic. The Witch of Atlas was composed in the summer of 1820 whilst Shelley attended the San Guiliano Baths near Pisa. The central character of this light hearted visionary rhyme, the Witch creates a sexless creature of both male and female form who becomes her companion in her travels, adventures and pranks on humanity. Mary Shelley wrote that The Witch of Atlas 'is a brilliant congregation of ideas such as his senses gathered, and his fancy colored, during his rambles in the sunny land he so much loved.'

With an Introduction by Donald McFarlan. Robert Burns, the most celebrated of all Scottish poets, is remembered with great devotion - his birthday on 25th January provokes fervour and festivity among Scots and many others the world over. Born in 1759 into miserable rustic poverty, by the age of eighteen Burns had acquired a good knowledge of both classical and English literature. In June 1786 his first collection of verse, Poems Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, which included 'To a Mouse' and 'The Cotter's Saturday Night', was greeted with huge acclaim by all classes of society. His later poems and ballads include 'Auld Lang Syne', the beautiful song 'My Love is like a Red Red Rose', 'Highland Mary', 'Scots Wha Hae' and his masterpiece, 'Tam o'Shanter'.
