True Detective Mysteries Audiobook

True Detective Mysteries

Author: Various Narrator: An Ensemble Cast Release Date: March 2016

One of the most successful periodicals in magazine history was True Detective Mysteries. An offshoot of publisher Bernarr Macfadden's True Story magazine, True Detective specialized in semi-fictionalizing real-life crime cases taken from police blotters and making them riveting reading, illustrated by posed photographs, newspaper morgue pix and police mug shots. The concept was a natural. Circulation soared into the millions. Before long, imitators followed in droves, leading to a new breed of entertainment that survives this day under the catchall phrase of true crimes magazines.

Tutte Le Lettere D'Amore Sono Ridicole Audiobook

Tutte Le Lettere D'Amore Sono Ridicole

Author: Diego Maenza Narrator: Patrizia Barrera Release Date: August 2020

Eloisa, una donna anziana che in gioventù fu vittima di un brutale abuso sessuale da parte di tre uomini, ricorda nell'ultimo giorno della sua vita questa cruda storia che la segnò. La racconta a una delle infermiere della clinica nel quale si trova agonizzante, mentre sfoglia un quaderno che contiene tutte le lettere che scambiò in giovane età con Abelardo, l'unico amore della sua vita.Maenza riflette sugli aspetti psicologici, etici e filosofici dell'amore occidentale e compone un discorso mieloso e intelligente in cui il tempo, i riti degli amanti e la presenza erotica vengono affrontati in modo sottile. Include una visione singolare della scrittura e una particolare e simbolica Teoria degli affetti, che usa nell'analisi della metafisica dei colori, lo zodiaco, le percezioni sensoriali, l'immaginario delle bestie alchimiste, gli elementi classici e gli arcani dei Tarocchi. In un epoca in cui le relazioni si susseguono a causa della vertiginosa modernità e in cui pullulano gli amori liquidi (secondo Bauman), "Tutte le lettere d'amore sono ridicole" rivendica il rituale laico della corrispondenza amorosa, sempre più in decadenza, evadendo da quella lentezza che Kundera attribuisce ai romanzi sentimentali. "Tutte le lettere d'amore sono ridicole" è costruito come una narrazione paradossale dei testi romantici ma è, allo stesso tempo, una dissertazione moderna sull'amore, unita a una storia d'affetto e a un tragico finale che fa riflettere su temi considerati dei tabù come l'abuso, la reificazione della donna e la violenza contemporanea.

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Full Cast Release Date: November 2020

William Collins Books and Decca Records are proud to present ARGO Classics, a historic catalogue of classic prose and verse read by some of the world’s most renowned voices. Originally released as vinyl records, these expertly remastered stories are now available to download for the first time. ‘If music be the food of love, play on; Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die.’ A comedic romance of mistaken identity, Twelfth Night begins with a shipwreck, splitting up Viola and her twin brother, Sebastian. Alone in a strange land, Viola disguises herself as a male servant, Cesario, in order to work for the Duke Orsino. Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but it is Cesario that Olivia falls for. A farcical tale of misplaced love, confusion, gender-swapping and aspiration, Twelfth Night remains one of Shakespeare’s best-loved and inventive comedies. All of the Shakespeare plays within the ARGO Classics catalogue are performed by the Marlowe Dramatic Society and Professional Players. The Marlowe was founded in 1907 with a mission to focus on effective delivery of verse, respect the integrity of texts, and rescue neglected plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries and the less performed plays of Shakespeare himself.

Twelfth Night Audiobook

Twelfth Night

Shakespeare’s most sophisticated comedy is a riotous tale of hopelessly unrequited passions and mistaken identity. Duke Orsino is in love with the noblewoman Olivia. She, however, has fallen for his servant Cesario, who is actually Viola, a woman disguised as a man, who loves Orsino: confusion is rife. Meanwhile, Olivia’s arrogant steward Malvolio is cruelly tricked by her uncle Sir Toby Belch, his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and the maidservant Maria into believing his mistress loves him. Niamh Cusack is Viola, Jonathan Firth is Orsino, Amanda Root plays Olivia, Dinsdale Landen plays Sir Toby Belch, and Julian Glover is Malvolio. “The attentive listener can follow the permutations of the plot and its humor quite well in this production.”—AudioFile

Twelfth Night Audiobook

Twelfth Night

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Rafe Beckley Release Date: June 2021

“If music be the food of love, play on,Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,The appetite may sicken, and so die.' After a shipwreck separates Viola from her twin brother in a strange town, she decides the best course of action is to disguise herself as a man, so that she can become a servant to a Duke named Orsino. This small deception quickly spirals out of control, as she mistakenly ends up in the middle of a love triangle with her Orsino and the object of his affection, Olivia. Confusion and hilarity ensue as Viola evades Olivia’s growing affections, while also trying to win over Orsino while still being disguised as Cesario. The situation grows even more complicated when Viola’s twin shows up and gets mixed into the chaos, and as a man named Malvolio attempts to enter himself into the complicated romance by vying for Olivia’s affections. Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s most amusing works, from the witty dialogue to the amusing scenes that play on themes of gender, class, and honesty. The complex love triangle has served as the inspiration for many comedic books and films over the centuries, and remains amusing to a modern audience.

Twelfth Night: Dramatised Version of William Shakespeare's Masterpieces Audiobook

Twelfth Night: Dramatised Version of William Shakespeare's Masterpieces

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Maggie Smith, Robin Phillips Release Date: January 2016

Twelfth Night, or What You Will is a comedy by William Shakespeare. The play centres on the twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola (who is disguised as a boy) falls in love with Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with the Countess Olivia. Upon meeting Viola, Countess Olivia falls in love with her thinking she is a man. Illyria, the setting of Twelfth Night, is important to the play's romantic atmosphere. Illyria was an ancient region of the Western Balkans. Viola has fallen in love with the Duke Orsino, creating a love triangle between Duke Orsino, Olivia and Viola, being that Duke Orsino loves Olivia, Viola loves Duke Orsino, and Olivia loves Viola.Viola is not alone among Shakespeare's cross-dressing heroines; in Shakespeare's theatre, convention dictated that adolescent boys play the roles of female characters, creating humour in the multiplicity of disguise found in a female character who for a while pretended at masculinity. Her cross dressing enables Viola to fulfill usually male roles, such as acting as a messenger between Orsino and Olivia, as well as being Orsino's confidant.
