Historia de Dos ciudades Audiobook

Historia de Dos ciudades

Author: Charles Dickens Narrator: Staff Audiolibros Colección Release Date: July 2019

Una de las novelas más conocidas de Dickens, un clásico de la literatura inglesa del siglo XIX. La historia transcurre entre dos ciudades, Londres y París, durante la época de la Revolución Francesa. La indiferencia de Dickens por la política y su desprecio por los políticos alejan la novela de cualquier debate político o filosófico sobre la revolución. Sin embargo, al suprimir dichos debates en torno a los acontecimientos revolucionarios, Dickens otorga a las masas populares francesas un protagonismo, autonomía y actividad histórica que no tuvieron, presentando además la revolución como justo castigo a la aristocracia por los siglos de explotación y maltrato del pueblo.

Al Murray stars in this anarchic BBC radio reboot of Thackeray's groundbreaking satirical novel Comedian Al Murray plays his great-great-great grandfather William Makepeace Thackeray as the unreliable narrator in this radical makeover of his ancestor's celebrated satire on class, sex, money, hypocrisy and snobbery in nineteenth-century England. As the curtain rises on our 'story without a hero', moneyless Becky Sharp leaves school with her upper-class best friend Amelia Sedley. Clever, cunning and ambitious, Becky is determined to make her way in Regency society - and she'll trample on anyone who gets in her way. When her plan to marry Amelia's brother Jos falls through, she snares the aristocratic Rawdon Crawley - but her hopes of riches are dashed when the couple are disinherited by his wealthy aunt. Meanwhile, Amelia marries the dashing George Osborne, breaking the heart of her devoted admirer, William Dobbin. But war is fast approaching, and as Napoleon advances towards Waterloo, where will the winds of destiny blow our players? And will the ever-resourceful Becky succeed in achieving her desires? Pacey, contemporary, fresh and funny, this sparkling dramatisation features Ellie White as Becky, Helen O'Hara as Amelia, Blake Ritson as Rawdon, Rupert Hill as George, Thom Tuck as Jos and Graeme Hawley as Dobbin.

The House of the Seven Gables Audiobook

The House of the Seven Gables

Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne Narrator: Adam Sims Release Date: July 2019

The sins of the Pyncheon father are visited upon his children over a period of several generations, until such time as one of his descendants unites with a member of the family he has wronged.

One, None and a Hundred Thousand Audiobook

One, None and a Hundred Thousand

Author: Luigi Pirandello Narrator: Chris Mattews Release Date: July 2019

Description: Pirandello began writing it in 1909. In an autobiographical letter, published in 1924, the author refers to this work as the '[B]itterest of all, profoundly humoristic, about the decomposition of life.' Vitangelo, the protagonist, discovers by way of a completely irrelevant question that his wife poses to him that everyone he knows and everyone he has ever met has constructed a Vitangelo persona in their own imagination and that none of these personas corresponds to the image of Vitangelo that he himself has constructed and believes himself to be. The listener is immediately immersed in a cruel game of confusing projections, mirroring the reality of social existence itself, which imperiously dictate their rules. As a result, the first, ironic 'awareness' of Vitangelo consists in the knowledge of that which he definitely is not; the preliminary operation must therefore consist in the spiteful destruction of all of these fictitious masks.

The Crucible Audiobook

The Crucible

Author: Arthur Miller Narrator: Troy W. Hudson Release Date: June 2019

The place is Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692, an enclave of rigid piety huddled on the edge of a wilderness. Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity. But in Arthur Miller's edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft - and then when those accusations multiply to consume the entire village. About this author: Arthur Asher Miller was an American playwright and essayist. He was a prominent figure in American literature and cinema for more than 61 years, writing a wide variety of plays, including celebrated plays such as The Crucible, A View from the Bridge, All My Sons, and Death of a Salesman, which are still studied and performed worldwide. Miller was often in the public eye, most famously for refusing to give evidence against others to the House Un-American Activities Committee, being the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama among other awards, and for marrying Marilyn Monroe. At the time of his death, Miller was considered one of the greatest American playwrights.
