  Electric Light
Electric light had been produced until then by aid of batteries, and the cost of their replacement, coupled with the comparatively small amount of power available from them and the low efficiency of lamps, had confined electric light to special applications.
Of course the first electric filament lamps, which awaited their discovery were poor and so initially more rewarding sources of illumination, predominantly the carbon arc was still in general use even several years after Edwardian times had drawn to a close.
Gas lamps were still the main way of producing light in buildings and so it was natural that one of the first applications of the dynamo was not to provide power for an electric light directly, but to provide fuel for gas lamps by breaking down water by electrolysis into hydrogen and oxygen.

 Howstuffworks "How Light Bulbs Work"
Electric current in a solid conductor is the mass movement of free electrons (electrons that are not tightly bound to an atom) from a negatively charged area to a positively charged area.
Light bulbs are ranked by their power -- the amount of light they put out in a certain period of time (measured in watts).
The filament in a light bulb is housed in a sealed, oxygen-free chamber to prevent combustion.

 Light Bulb History - Invention of the Light Bulb   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Many inventors had tried to perfect incandescent lamps to "sub-divide" electric light or make it smaller and weaker than it was in the existing electric arc lamps, which were too bright to be used for small spaces such as the rooms of a house.
Between the years 1878 and 1892 the electric light industry was growing in terms of installed lights but shrinking in terms of company competition as both Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse determined to control the industry and its advancement.
The incandescent light bulb (archaically known as the electric lamp) uses a glowing wire filament heated to white-hot by electrical resistance, to generate light (a process known as thermal radiation or incandescence).

 VH1.com : Electric Light Orchestra : Biography - Urge Music Downloads
The platinum-selling double-LP, Out of the Blue, appeared in 1977, although the record's success was tempered somewhat by a lawsuit filed by Electric Light Orchestra against their former distributor, United Artists, whom the band charged flooded the market with defective copies of the album.
However, as Electric Light Orchestra's career descended, Lynne emerged as a sought-after producer, helming well-received comebacks from George Harrison (1987's Cloud Nine) and Roy Orbison (1989's Mystery Girl) and additionally re-teaming with both rock legends as well as Bob Dylan and Tom Petty in the hit supergroup the Traveling Wilburys.
In 1988, meanwhile, Bevan formed Electric Light Orchestra Part II with vocalist Neil Lockwood, keyboardist Eric Troyer, and bassist Pete Haycock; although Lynne filed suit against the group (hence the "Part II" tag), a self-titled LP followed in 1991, with a live collection recorded with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra appearing a year later.

Heaney has written and spoken eloquently on the "redress of poetry"- the purpose, the need and the drive of poetry to serve as a medium of communication and conversation in the modern, larger world as well as the classical, academic one.
