As You Like It Audiobook

As You Like It

This pastoral comedy is one of Shakespeare’s best loved, owing to its delightful heroine—the wise, witty, and virtuous Rosalind. Rosalind, daughter of the deposed Duke Senior, is exiled from the court by her wicked uncle. Disguising herself as a young man and accompanied by her cousin Celia, she takes refuge in the Forest of Arden. In the forest Rosalind meets Orlando with whom she is in love, but her male disguise complicates matters, especially when Rosalind finds she has unwittingly attracted the shepherdess Phebe. But out of the confusion comes reconciliation and forgiveness, and all ends happily. Rosalind is played by Niamh Cusack, Orlando by Stephen Mangan. Victoria Hamilton is Celia, and Gerard Murphy is Jaques. “Another play in the fine Arkangel Complete Shakespeare series is performed by accomplished British players. Stephen Mangan and Niamh Cusack are especially strong as the lead characters. The original music and singing give the production a true theatrical feel.”—AudioFile

Poemas de Amor Audiobook

Poemas de Amor

Author: Pablo Neruda Narrator: Gerardo Prat Release Date: April 2017

Pablo Neruda (Parral, 1904-Santiago de Chile, 1973) fue, en las palabras de Gabriel García Márquez, el "más grande poeta del siglo XX en cualquier idioma." Para Harold Bloom "no admite comparación con ningún otro poeta del hemisferio occidental." Para la mayoría de lectores, que lo han venido leyendo con devoción desde hace casi un siglo, Pablo Neruda es el gran poeta del amor. Esta compilación reúne algunos de sus poemas de amor más sensuales y desesperados. En su mayoría están dedicados a Matilde Urrutia, la que se convertiría en la gran mujer de su vida, cuando su relación todavía era clandestina, y se amaban secretamente en la evocadora isla de Capri, en donde Neruda recaló mientras sufría el destierro de Chile por motivos políticos.
