The Dead Audiobook

The Dead

Author: James Joyce Narrator: Jim Girard Release Date: June 2021

'The Dead' is the final short story in the 1914 collection Dubliners by James Joyce. The other stories in the collection are shorter, whereas at 15,952 words, 'The Dead' is almost long enough to be described as a novella. The story deals with themes of love and loss as well as raising questions about the nature of the Irish identity. The story centres on Gabriel Conroy, a professor and part-time book reviewer, and explores the relationships he has with his family and friends. Gabriel and his wife, Gretta, arrive late to an annual Christmas party hosted by his aunts, Kate and Julia Morkan, who eagerly receive him. After a somewhat awkward encounter with Lily, the caretaker's daughter, Gabriel goes upstairs and joins the rest of the party attendees. Gabriel worries about the speech he has to give, especially because it contains academic references that he fears his audience will not understand. When Freddy Malins arrives drunk, as the hosts of the party had feared, Aunt Kate asks Gabriel to make sure he is all right. Among the most significant works James Joyce: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, Finnegans Wake, Dubliners, The Sisters, Eveline, After the Race, An Encounter, Araby, The Boarding House, Counterparts, Clay, A Painful Case, Ivy Day in the Committee Room, A Mother, Two Gallants, A Little Cloud, Grace.

Dubliners Audiobook

Dubliners

Author: James Joyce Narrator: Mary Jane Wells Release Date: March 2021

Dubliners is a collection of fifteen short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. The stories comprise a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences a life-changing self-understanding or illumination, and the idea of paralysis where Joyce felt Irish nationalism stagnated cultural progression, placing Dublin at the heart of this regressive movement. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity. James Joyce (1882 - 1941)

Fifty Shades of Slumber Audiobook

Fifty Shades of Slumber

Sleep. That most mysterious of times. The unconscious hours.Everyone needs it. Whether it's the recommended eight hours, forty winks, cat naps, power naps or other shades of blissful slumber. Sleep offers a respite from the rigors and challenges of the day. A chance for the brain to process what has happened and bring rest and recuperation before the cycle of daytime activity begins again.Also, perchance to dream or, if we are unlucky, the visitation of nightmares.But for some people sleep does not come easy. These can be wakeful hours of frustration or tedium where closing the eyes does not bring the closing of the mind and the slumber so keenly wanted.Part of the problem, in this increasingly frenetic 24/7 world is that we seem reluctant or unable to switch off enough to recuperate; we might miss something. But slumbered hours bring gains in health that far outweigh transitory loss.Our poets from Kipling and Swinburne through Hafiz, James Joyce, Edgar Allan Poe and a pillowful of others explore the wish to rest, to close the eyes and reside in the land of nod.

Fifty Shades of Spring Audiobook

Fifty Shades of Spring

Nature's year begins. Temperatures slowly rise. Green gradually becomes the dominant colour of the landscape. Rain from drenching showers to windy squalls help nourish the land. Nature has embarked on her epic symphony of the year. Each year, each season, each day is a little different from her previous work. Days lengthen as her canvas and palette grows more confident. Colour emerges from the shades of monochrome. She is at work on tasks everywhere.Naturally our classic poets rise to the challenge knowing that they will only be able to detail fragments or broad brush stroke the whole. They ponder, they write, they wonder.In fifty poems we take you on their inspiring journey reflecting on the miracle of Spring.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man Audiobook

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Author: James Joyce Narrator: Jon Waters Release Date: September 2020

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man brings readers along on a journey through a man’s life, from his childhood through adulthood. The protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, begins life with fear and confusion of the world, but as he grows older and becomes more educated and world-wise. The novel follows him through his days at a Jesuit college with a strict administration, through his family’s difficult economic times, his return to religion and faith as an adult, and his eventual mistrust in established societal institutions. Because the story follows Stephen through a large portion of his life, readers are able to connect and understand his perspective on the world and see how his thoughts and identity develop. This novel is complex and nuanced, and is a brilliant example of James Joyce’s literary prowess. Joyce wrote a personal story that skillfully parsed his more modern philosophies, and the result is this novel that keeps readers thinking for generation to come.

Pucker Factor 10: Memoir of a US Army Helicopter Pilot in Vietnam Audiobook

Pucker Factor 10: Memoir of a US Army Helicopter Pilot in Vietnam

Author: James Joyce Narrator: Traber Burns Release Date: March 2020

“In 1963…there was no way I could have known, sitting in a classroom on that beautiful campus in Ohio, that by raising my hand I would be going to war in Vietnam and that I would see things, hear things, and do things that most people cannot imagine.”—James Joyce. The author was drawn into the United States Army through ROTC, and went through training to fly helicopters in combat over Vietnam. His experiences are notable because he flew both Huey “Slicks” and Huey “Gunships”: the former on defense as he flew troops into battle, and the latter on offense as he took the battle to the enemy. Through this book, the author relives his experiences flying and fighting, with special attention given to his and other pilots’ day-to-day lives—such as the smoke bombing of Disneyland, the nickname given to a United States Army–sponsored compound for prostitution. Some of the pilots Joyce served with survived the war and went on to have careers with commercial airlines, and many were killed.
