Written 75 years ago, "Desiderata" achieved fame as the anthem of the sixties' hippie-dom - the subject of many millions of posters and handbills - and famously narrated by Les Crane in his 1971 song version of the poem. Over the years "Desiderata" has provided a kind and gentle philosophy, a refreshing perspective on life's bigger picture. This new presentation of the prose poem will bring it to the attention of a new generation. The origins of "Desiderata" were, for many years, shrouded in mystery. Once thought to have originated from St. Paul's Church in Baltimore, Maryland in the seventeenth century, it was later discovered that American poet Max Ehrmann had written it in 1927. Presented in a refreshingly modern design, "Desiderata" will appeal to a younger generation, looking to find the meaning of life, and to baby-boomers, who'll recall Desiderata from their youth.
