B. J. Harrison Reads Ivanhoe Audiobook

B. J. Harrison Reads Ivanhoe

Author: Walter Scott Narrator: B. J. Harrison Release Date: February 2021

'Ivanhoe' is a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott, part of the Waverley series. The action takes place during the 12th century in England, and the themes revolve mainly around chivalric romances, tournaments, trials, and religious clashes. It is the story of Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe who is disinherited by his father for supporting the Norman king Richard the Lionheart. It is a Romantic novel of sentimentality, family issues, love, and relationships. The constant battle between good and evil, as well as between the dictates of the heart and the mind, made 'Ivanhoe' one of the most influential books in English history and makes for a compelling read for fans of historical fiction and chivalric tales. B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere. Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was a Scottish novelist, poet, and historian, who is often called the father of the historical novel. He believed in the inherent decency of human beings, and tolerance was often the major theme of his work. Scott was a strong supporter of social progress as well as of the preservation of past traditions. His most famous works are 'Ivanhoe', 'The Talisman', 'Rob Roy', and 'Waverley' where he pays special attention to the realistic portrayal of characters and situations.

Diabólica tentación. Relatos de mujeres malignas Audiobook

Diabólica tentación. Relatos de mujeres malignas

Como fiel reflejo de la sociedad en que se desarrolla, la literatura muestra los cambios y terrenos que ha ganado la mujer a lo largo de la historia. Aún queda mucho camino que recorrer pero Medea, Sherezade, Morella, Madame Bovary e, incluso, Lisbeth Salander han ayudado a defender y reivindicar los derechos de la mujer. En esta antología no hemos hecho distinción entre autores o autoras pues nos hemos centrado plenamente en los personajes femeninos como ejes de la antología. La maldad que estos reflejan, como verá el lector, se produce por el desamor, la venganza o la incomprensión y estará repleta de tintes sobrenaturales y misteriosos.

The Lay of the Last Minstrel

Author: Walter Scott Narrator: Peter Tucker Release Date: September 2020

An ageing singer asks for shelter at Newark Castle, and in exchange performs for his hostess the Duchess of Buccleuch the story of a 16th century border feud. The story he tells is about the so-called 'Flower of Teviot,' the Lady Margaret Scott of Buccleuch, who the Baron Henry of Cranstown is in love with. But whilst Henry is from the Ker Clan, Margaret is from the Scott clan, and the two families are in the midst of a vicious border war. This conflict has recently caused the death of Margaret’s father, and as such, her mother is fervently against the union of the two lovers. Scott spent a lot of his career collecting traditional ballads and studying local legends and folklore, which he masterfully weaves into this gothic romance.

Ivanhoe - Sir Walter Scott Audiobook

Ivanhoe - Sir Walter Scott

Author: Walter Scott Narrator: Omc Release Date: March 2020

Ivanhoe(1819) was the first of Scott's novels to adopt a purely English subject and was also his first attempt to combine history and romance, which later influenced Victorian medievalism. Set at the time of the Norman Conquest, Ivanhoe returns from the Crusades to claim his inheritance and the love of Rowena and becomes involved in the struggle between Richard Coeur de Lion and his Norman brother John. The gripping narrative is structured by a series of conflicts: Saxon versus Norman, Christian versus Jew, men versus women, played out against Scott's unflinching moral realism. A beautifully illustrated comic graphic novel; a classic you will enjoy and treasure.

Ivanhoe

Author: Walter Scott Narrator: Juan Carlos Gustems Release Date: March 2019

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. Escúchalo ahora «¡ Valor, bravos caballeros! El hombre muere, pero la gloria queda. ¡Valor! ¡Antes morir que ser vencidos!» Inglaterra, siglo XII. Desterrado por querer casarse contra los deseos de su padre, el joven y valiente Wilfred de Ivanhoe se pone al servicio de Ricardo Corazón de León y parte como cruzado junto a sus tropas para reconquistar Tierra Santa. A su regreso, decidido a recuperar su honor y a reunirse con su amada pero prohibida Lady Rowena, rápidamente se verá en medio de una lucha por el poder entre el noble rey Ricardo y su hermano, Juan Sin Tierra, un traidor despreciable y sin escrúpulos. Solo Ivanhoe, con la ayuda de Robin de Locksley -el legendario Robin Hood-, tiene la clave para defender su buen nombre y el de la Corona. El estudio sociolingüístico del doctor Graham Tulloch analiza cómo Walter Scott demostró que escribir sobre el pasado puede ser un modo de opinar sobre el presente. Una cronología sobre el autor completa los apéndices para captar en su totalidad la importancia de una de las obras más influyentes de la literatura histórica. Stendhal dijo... «Walter Soctt es nuestro padre. Nos inventó a todos.»
