1) Fay Inchfawn (nee Elizabeth Rebecca Ward) took the springtime of 1920 as her inspiration for the bright promise of beauty and new life described in Early Spring. Eight different readings of this magical work to celebrate the Vernal Equinox.
2) Fifteen different readings of Mother Night, by James Weldon Johnson. James Weldon Johnson (June 17, 1871 â€“ June 26, 1938) was an American author, politician, diplomat, critic, journalist, poet, anthologist, educator, lawyer, songwriter, and early civil rights activist. Johnson is remembered best for his leadership within the NAACP, as well as for his writing, which includes novels, poems, and collections of folklore. He was also one of the first African-American professors at New York University. Later in life he was a professor of creative literature and writing at Fisk University.
3) Seventeen different readings of Shakespeareâ€™s Sonnet 130. This sonnet offers a look into the Elizabethan ideal of womanly beauty, then turns it on its head with wry realism. Then as now, real beauty is inside.
4) Eighteen different readings of The Song of Wandering Aengus, by Irish poet William Butler Yeats. This is Yeats in his faerie folklore vein, and he paints an evocative picture of a beautiful brush with the supernatural.
