Synopsis

Famous for its eloquent stating of the simple truths that are often overlooked in the busyness of everyday life, Desiderata (Latin for 'things to be desired') contains a timeless message of faith, hope and charity. The poem was actually written by American Max Ehrmann in 1927, but achieved its greatest fame as the anthem of Sixties' hippie-dom - becoming the subject of many millions of posters. Over the years, Desiderata has provided a kind and gentle philosophy, a refreshing perspective on life's bigger picture. This beautifully produced new presentation of the poem will bring it to the attention of a whole new audience, appealing both to a younger generation looking to find more meaning in life as well as to baby-boomers who recall it from their youth.

Max Ehrmann was a poet and lawyer from Indiana. He wrote the Desiderata in 1927 inspired by a wish to create something for posterity: 'I should like, if I could, to leave a humble gift - a bit of chaste prose that had caught up some noble moods.'
