"In literature as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others", Andre Maurois
Columbia Granger's World of Poetry

Columbia Granger's World of Poetry

Publisher: Columbia University Press

For nearly a century, Granger's has been the resource that libraries and researchers trust "the best available general index to poetry" (Booklist). First introduced on CD-ROM in 1991 and revised in 1995, it has now been expanded and updated, ensuring that its coverage stays up to the minute and the software for accessing it remains state of the art.

At Columbia Granger's World of Poetry, users currently have access to almost 220,000 poems in full text along with 450,000 poem citations. With the re-designed site, searching is greatly enhanced and user friendly and there are new searches by era or school, nationality, publication date, language, cultural identity, and gender. And there is much more.

Columbia Granger's is an invaluable tool for any one who or wants to learn about poetry. With the new database some of the most important works of literature, The Canterbury Tales, Beowulf, The Divine Comedy, are presented in their entirety, in easy-to-navigate form, so that readers can understand the order in which they were composed and meant to be read. These works may be studied in part or sequence. In addition each work appears in modern spelling along with its original language, Middle English, Old English, and Italian, respectively. This is another unique benefit of Columbia Granger's World of Poetry. An exciting new feature is the split screen option that will allow advanced users the ability to view works side-by-side for comparison. For example, The Canterbury Tales can be viewed in Middle English next to the modern translation. This feature along with the extensive body of poetry will allow for an innovative method to explore poetry.

For general readers and librarians the new subject search (and browse) will be especially welcome with poems organized across 6,000 subjects. All the popular searches are here, love, death, mother, children, but of special interest is the organization by hierarchies such as History, U.S. Civil War, Battle of Antietam or Battle of Bull Run. And there is more to come such as audio to selected poems. Subscriptions provide unlimited user access.

Twelfth Night DVD

Twelfth Night DVD

Publisher: 4 Learning / Espresso Education

Curriculum Connections: Understanding the author's craft, reading for meaning, English literacy heritage, media and moving image text, cross curricular relevance, the programmes are invaluable resources for English and media studies at GCSE and will also support the study of applied GCSEs in business, art and design, performing arts and ICT. The DVD also contains four 'making of' documentaries.

Channel 4's version of Twelfth Night is an exciting contemporary telling of this complex tale. For all of its incorporation of modern themes such as the plight of refugees, the film successfully retains the magical 'otherworldliness' of Illyria, a land in suspended animation. The lead role of Viola is played by Parminder Nagra, following her success in the popular television series ER. Co starring with Parminder is Michael Maloney (Malvolio) of Truly, Madly, Deeply fame and a regular with the Royal Shakespeare Company. The setting is contemporary with Viola and Sebastian presented as asylum seekers on their arrival in Illyria. Nitin Sawhney, one of the UK’s most successful contemporary composers, has written the music. Interactive Whiteboard compatible.
