    "Det bliver ikke væk" er en samling vilde og vrisne, desperate, humoristiske og veloplagte digte om at blive gammel og træt, om at få sorte huller i hukommelsen, om at undres og forarges, blive væltet omkuld af vestenvinden og miste grebet og ævred og inspirationen. Der er kærlighedsdigte og heltedigte, landskabsdigte og cykeldigte, diktummer og besværgelser og væltede mareridtsdigte, som trækker linjer tilbage til Jørgen Leths 1960'er volapykdigte, men nu med den rå desperation, der kommer af at skrive sig op imod døden.

    Las pociones que prepara Pancho Varona llevan ingredientes que sanan el alma: una buena dosis de poemas canallas y seductores, unas cucharadas de canciones compuestas para muchos y unas cuantas más de las escritas para nadie; y, por supuesto, una pizca de sabor a madrugada y a wiski abandonado en la barra de un bar cualquiera.

    Was wäre Weihnachten ohne die Weihnachtsgeschichte? Johannes Steck liest die fantasiereich ausgeschmückte Weihnachtsgeschichte, wie wir sie nicht nur aus den bekannten Evangelien in ihrer Kurzform kennen, sondern wie sie auch in der Legenda Aurea des Jacobus von Voragine um 1260 mit viel Fantasie erzählt wird. Gedichte von Rainer Maria Rilke, die Geschichte eines kleinen Engels, Knecht Ruprecht und die Fragen eines kleinen Jungen, der sich wundert, warum das Christkind ausgerechnet nackt und arm in einer Futterkrippe liegen musste, runden diese besinnlichen Erzählungen rund um die Weihnachtszeit ab.

    Als die "mystische Zunge des Verborgenen", "die Rose von Schiras" oder unter dem Namen Hafis - der Bewahrer - ging der Verfasser der Gedichte des "Diwan" in die Literaturgeschichte ein. Wie ein roter Faden zieht sich das Thema der unerwiderten Liebe und der Sehnsucht nach der Geliebten durch den "Diwan". Als das Werk des persischen Poeten 1812 Eingang in die deutsche Sprache fand, war es kein Geringerer als Goethe, der den glühenden Versen mit Haut und Haar verfiel. Sie sollten für ihn zu einem sprudelnden Quell der Inspiration werden. Nun verzaubert Wolfram Koch den Hörer mit einer Auswahl von Hafis' schönsten Gedichten.

    For the female poet there was always the confining hand of men to instruct that their time was perhaps spent more productively elsewhere. These lines, these gilded verses often protest otherwise. The contribution of women in these earlier centuries is immense, and in this series we bring together poets who have created some of the most beautiful and expressive verses ever written. And remember these words, these telling lines, have been written against the grain of society's male bias. With their remembered words these female poets have given us a history that we can all now share.

    James Elroy Flecker was born on 5th November 1884, in Lewisham, London. Flecker does not seem to have enjoyed academic study and achieved only a Third-Class Honours in Greats in 1906. This did not set him up for a job in either government service or the academic world. After some frustrating forays at school teaching he attempted to join the Levant Consular Service and entered Cambridge to study for two years. After a poor first year he pushed forward in the second and achieved First-Class honours. His reward was a posting to Constantinople at the British consulate.

When the Poet Laureate, Alfred Austin, died in 1913, Binyon was considered alongside Thomas Hardy and Rudyard Kipling....

    Strictly speaking The Lake Poets were not a movement or school of poetry. They were only so named as such by The Edinburgh Review so that they could be disparaged. It was a spectacular backfire! The three main figures would be rightly seen as among the most monumental figures in English poetry - William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the underrated but immense Robert Southey, himself a 30-year poet laureate.

Among his other classics are Inchcape Rock as well as a number of plays including Wat Tyler.

    Michael Drayton was born in 1563 at Hartshill, near Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England. The facts of his early life remain unknown. Drayton first published, in 1590, a volume of spiritual poems: The Harmony of the Church. Ironically the Archbishop of Canterbury seized almost the entire edition and had it destroyed. In 1593 he published Idea: The Shepherd's Garland, nine pastorals celebrating his own love-sorrows under the poetic name of Rowland. This was later expanded to a 64-sonnet cycle.

These are but a few of whose company we shall be keeping as we raise the curtain on our first instalment of theatrical history.
