Mrs Dalloway Audiobook

Mrs Dalloway

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: David Crandall, Hannah Smith Release Date: March 2021

Mrs Dalloway (published on 14 May 1925) is a novel by Virginia Woolf that details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, a fictional high-society woman in post-First World War England. It is one of Woolf's best-known novels. Created from two short stories, Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street and the unfinished The Prime Minister, the novel addresses Clarissa's preparations for a party she will host that evening. With an interior perspective, the story travels forward and back in time and in and out of the characters' minds to construct an image of Clarissa's life and of the inter-war social structure. In October 2005, Mrs Dalloway was included on Time's list of the 100 best English-language novels written since Time debuted in 1923.

Una Habitación propia Audiobook

Una Habitación propia

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Mavi Lacovara Release Date: January 2021

En 1928 a Virginia Woolf le propusieron dar una serie de charlas sobre el tema de la mujer y la novela. Lejos de cualquier dogmatismo o presunción, planteó la cuestión desde un punto de vista realista, valiente y muy particular. Una pregunta: ¿qué necesitan las mujeres para escribir buenas novelas? Una sola respuesta: independencia económica y personal, es decir, Una habitación propia. Sólo hacía nueve años que se le había concedido el voto a la mujer y aún quedaba mucho camino por recorrer. El ensayo recorre la historia literaria de las mujeres, cuyo fin último es el de reivindicar para el género femenino la posibilidad de ser admitido en una cultura que hasta entonces se había mostrado como uso exclusivo de los hombres, en una sociedad inglesa de una pronunciada idiosincrasia patriarcal.

Blue and Green (Unabridged)

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Cathy Szlamp Release Date: November 2020

The Ported fingers of glass hang downwards. The light slides down the glass, and drops a pool of green. All day long the ten fingers of the lustre drop green upon the marble. The feathers of parakeets their harsh cries sharp blades of palm trees green, too.

Monday or Tuesday - Poem (Unabridged)

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Cathy Szlamp Release Date: November 2020

Lazy and indifferent, shaking space easily from his wings, knowing his way, the heron passes over the church beneath the sky. White and distant, absorbed in itself, endlessly the sky covers and uncovers, moves and remains...

A Haunted House (Unabridged) Audiobook

A Haunted House (Unabridged)

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Cathy Szlamp Release Date: November 2020

The narrator, apparently a woman, begins: 'Whatever hour you woke there was a door shutting.' Along with her husband, the narrator experiences the sensations of a home literally alive with memories. She does not, however, try to keep the reader in suspense regarding the mysterious openings and closings of doors and windows that she and her husband witness. Despite the fact that she knows two ghosts wander through her home, she is not afraid. The ghosts, after all, mean the narrator and her husband no harm...

A Society (Unabridged) Audiobook

A Society (Unabridged)

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Cathy Szlamp Release Date: November 2020

THIS IS HOW it all came about. Six or seven of us were sitting one day after tea. Some were gazing across the street into the windows of a milliner's shop where the light still shone brightly upon scarlet feathers and golden slippers. Others were idly occupied in building little towers of sugar upon the edge of the tea tray. After a time, so far as I can remember, we drew round the fire and began as usual to praise men­how strong, how noble, how brilliant, how courageous, how beautiful they were­how we envied those who by hook or by crook managed to get attached to one for life­when Poll, who had said nothing, burst into tears. Poll, I must tell you, has always been queer. For one thing her father was a strange man. He left her a fortune in his will, but on condition that she read all the books in the London Library. We comforted her as best we could; but we knew in our hearts how vain it was. For though we like her, Poll is no beauty; leaves her shoe laces untied; and must have been thinking, while we praised men, that not one of them would ever wish to marry her. At last she dried her tears. For some time we could make nothing of what she said. Strange enough it was in all conscience. She told us that, as we knew, she spent most of her time in the London Library, reading. She had begun, she said, with English literature on the top floor; and was steadily working her way down to the Times on the bottom. And now half, or perhaps only a quarter, way through a terrible thing had happened. She could read no more. Books were not what we thought them. 'Books,' she cried, rising to her feet and speaking with an intensity of desolation which I shall never forget, 'are for the most part unutterably bad!'...

The Voyage Out: Penguin Classics Audiobook

The Voyage Out: Penguin Classics

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Kristin Atherton, Masali Baduza Release Date: September 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Masali Baduza, star of the BBC adaptation of Malorie Blackman's Noughts + Crosses. This definitive recording features an introduction by Jane Wheare. A party of English people are aboard the Euphrosyne, bound for South America. Among them is Rachel Vinrace, a young girl, innocent and wholly ignorant of the world of politics and society, books, sex, love and marriage. She is a free spirit half-caught, momentarily and passionately, by Terence Hewet, an aspiring writer who she meets in Santa Marina. But their engagement is to end abruptly, and tragically. Virginia Woolf's first novel, published in 1915, is a haunting exploration of a young woman's mind, signalling the beginning of her fascination with capturing the mysteries and complexities of the inner life. © Virginia Woolf 1992 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

To the Lighthouse: Penguin Classics Audiobook

To the Lighthouse: Penguin Classics

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Ruth Wilson Release Date: September 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Ruth Wilson, star of Luther, Mrs Wilson and His Dark Materials. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Hermione Lee. To the Lighthouse is at once a vivid impressionistic depiction of a family holiday, and a meditation on marriage, on parenthood and childhood, on grief, tyranny and bitterness. For years now the Ramsays have spent every summer in their holiday home in Scotland, and they expect these summers will go on forever; but as the First World War looms, the integrity of family and society will be fatally challenged. The novel's use of stream of consciousness, reminiscence and shifting perspectives gives it an intimate, poetic essence, and at the time of publication in 1927 it represented an utter rejection of Victorian and Edwardian literary values.

Al Faro Audiobook

Al Faro

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: Varios Narradores Release Date: June 2020

- Este audiolibro está narrado en Español neutral. 'Si se atuvieran a la propia experiencia, sentirían siempre que eso no es lo que quieren, que no hay nada más aburrido y pueril e inhumano que el amor, pero, que al mismo tiempo, es bello y necesario.' Ante la enormidad de la vida, con sus largos años y su final que pareciera que nunca llegará, ¿qué nos motiva a vivirla? Cuando un viaje prometido de una madre a un hijo se ve aplazado en el tiempo, movida desde el futuro cercano a la perpetuidad, ¿Qué se siente saber que el viaje nunca llegará? La residencia Ramsay conocerá la muerte y la pérdida a medida que venga. Son aspectos inseparables de la vida, pero a la vez lo son el amor y la euforia de conocerse a sí mismo en el transcurso de los años.

Classic Short Stories - Volume 11 Audiobook

Classic Short Stories - Volume 11

Author: E W Hornung, Virginia Woolf Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Richard Mitchley Release Date: January 2020

Stories are one of mankind’s greatest artistic achievements. Whether written down or spoken they have an ability to capture our imagination and thoughts, and take us on incredible journeys in the space of a phrase and the turn of a page.Within a few words of text or speech, new worlds and characters form, propelling a narrative to a conclusion with intricate ease. Finely crafted, perfectly formed these Miniature Masterpieces, at first thought, seem remarkably easy to conjure up. But ask any writer and they will tell you that distilling the essence of narrative and characters into a short story is one of the hardest acts of their literary craft. Many attempt, but few achieve.
