Author: H. Rider Haggard Narrator: Michael Ward Release Date: May 2020

'What was it that you heard about my brother's journey at Bamangwato?' asked Sir Henry, as I paused to fill my pipe before replying to Captain Good. 'I heard this,' I answered, 'and I have never mentioned it to a soul till to-day. I heard that he was starting for Solomon's Mines.' 'Solomon's Mines?' ejaculated both my hearers at once. 'Where are they?' ... And so begins the adventure of Allan Quatermain, Sir Henry Curtis and Captain Good as they penetrate into the unknown regions of South Africa in search of a missing brother, and the fabulous wealth, said to still reside in 'King Solomon's Mines'. First published in September 1885 amid considerable fanfare, with billboards and posters around London announcing it as 'The Most Amazing Book Ever Written', this tale of action and adventure by Sir H. Rider Haggard was released in 1885 and became an immiediate best seller.

El comendador es conocido como un hombre cruel y sin escrúpulos, no respeta las leyes y abusa de su poder, traicionando así los principios feudales y comportándose como un tirano. La historia comienza cuando una joven mujer del pueblo llamada Laurencia quiere contraer matrimonio con el joven llamado Frondoso. Pero un día todo cambia, cuando Laurencia se encuentra en el bosque con el Comendador, quien forcejea con ella al querer llevarla a la fuerza al palacio y poseerla... Fuenteovejuna es una obra teatral insigne del Siglo de Oro español, escrita por el dramaturgo Lope de Vega y compuesta por tres actos. Publicada en 1619, representa una de las comedias más complejas y un clásico de la literatura española. La obra se basa en un episodio histórico de 1476 que ocurrió en Fuente Obejuna, un pueblo en la provincia de Córdoba, cuando sus habitantes, cansados de soportar los abusos del señor feudal, se rebelan unánimemente contra él. Así, el famoso episodio fue recreado e inmortalizado por Lope de Vega siglo y medio después en una obra cuya tensión y fuerza dramática cautiva y emociona al lector. Esta obra se ha convertido en un símbolo de la unión de un pueblo contra la opresión y los abusos del poder.

Author: George Eliot Narrator: Anna Maxwell Martin, Jack Farthing, Joanna Vanderham Release Date: May 2020

George Eliot’s classic Victorian epic about a brother and sister pitted against one another in love and life, starring Anna Maxwell Martin Based on George Eliot’s own rural upbringing and relationship with her estranged brother, The Mill on the Floss is a powerful, dynamic tale of familial rejection, sibling rivalry and what happens when the head confronts the heart. Growing up at Dorlcote Mill in the beautiful English countryside, young Maggie yearns for approval and affection. With her dark, striking looks and quick intelligence she is the misfit of the Tulliver family, and while her father dotes on her, her mother despairs of her rebelliousness. But it is the love of her stolid, dutiful brother Tom that Maggie craves most, and despite their opposing natures, the two forge a close bond. But as adults, their paths diverge. Following their father’s bankruptcy, Tom leaves school and enters the world of business, determined to repay the family’s debts and regain their home.Maggie, meanwhile, is drawn to two very different men: kindred spirit Philip Wakem, the son of her father's enemy, and the charming, seductive Stephen Guest, already promised to her cousin, Lucy. As she struggles to reconcile passion and loyalty, the choices Maggie makes will set her against her beloved brother – with tragic consequences...

George Eliot's beloved story of life, love and politics in an English town A jewel in the classic literature crown, Middlemarch was selected as one of the BBC’s ‘100 Novels That Shaped Our World’. Its epic arc takes in politics, tragedy, romance and comedy, interweaving multiple narratives to make up a thrilling ensemble tale. Set in the 1830s, this ‘study of provincial life’ introduces us to young, idealistic Dorothea Brooke, who accepts a proposal from scholarly Edward Casaubon, hoping to forge a loving partnership of intellectual equals. But on honeymoon in Rome, she swiftly becomes disillusioned. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she finds solace in her friendship with Casaubon’s cousin, Will Ladislaw – only for her controlling husband to suspect her of betrayal, and set out to test her loyalty. Meanwhile, mayor’s son Fred Vincy embarks on a steep economic learning curve, risking his burgeoning relationship with Mary Garth. When he contracts typhoid, he is treated by the town’s new medical man, Tertius Lydgate, who becomes drawn to Fred’s sister, Rosamond. Eager to win her hand, the doctor seeks help from the wealthy Mr Bulstrode – a decision he will come to regret... As their stories shift, viewpoints twist together and lives collide and realign in a compelling ‘convergence of human lots’ that shows us an entire world in microcosm.

Cherry Orchard, The - Anton Chekhov Audiobook

Cherry Orchard, The - Anton Chekhov

Author: Anton Chekhov Narrator: Multiple Narrators Release Date: May 2020

The Cherry Orchard  is the last play by Russian playwright Anton Chekhov. Written in 1903, it was first published by Znaniye (Book Two, 1904), and came out as a separate edition later that year in Saint Petersburg, via A.F. Marks Publishers. It opened at the Moscow Art Theatre on 17 January 1904 in a production directed by Konstantin Stanislavski. Chekhov described the play as a comedy, with some elements of farce, though Stanislavski treated it as a tragedy. Since its first production, directors have contended with its dual nature. It is often identified as one of the three or four outstanding plays by Chekhov, along with The Seagull, Three Sisters, and Uncle Vanya. The play revolves around an aristocratic Russian landowner who returns to her family estate (which includes a large and well-known cherry orchard) just before it is auctioned to pay the mortgage. Unresponsive to offers to save the estate, she allows its sale to the son of a former serf; the family leaves to the sound of the cherry orchard being cut down. The story presents themes of cultural futility – both the futile attempts of the aristocracy to maintain its status and of the bourgeoisie to find meaning in its newfound materialism.[citation needed] It dramatizes the socio-economic forces in Russia at the turn of the 20th century, including the rise of the middle class after the abolition of serfdom in the mid-19th century and the decline of the power of the aristocracy.

Author: Fiódor Dostoyevski Narrator: Varios Narradores Release Date: May 2020

- Este audiolibro está narrado en Español neutral. '¡Dios mío! ¡Un minuto entero de felicidad! ¿Acaso es poco para toda una vida humana...?' Durante una noche blanca en San Petersburgo, fenómeno que se da durante el solsticio de verano y a causa del cual la oscuridad nunca es completa, un joven solitario e introvertido conoce de forma accidental a Nástenka, una joven y bella muchacha. La aparición de la joven ilumina su existencia con un fulgor trágico, y el hecho de haber presentido el amor en sus primeras y sinceras conversaciones son suficientes para que el joven soñador se considere un bienaventurado. El joven narra que tras el primer encuentro, ambos desconocidos deciden encontrarse durante las cuatro noches siguientes, con la condición de que él no se enamore de ella. Así comienzan las largas noches blancas en las que Nástenka relata su triste historia de vida, y en las que tienen conversaciones que tratan de forma sutil y envolvente sobre las grandes pasiones que mueven al ser humano: el amor y el desamor, la ilusión, la esperanza y el desengaño. A pesar de que el protagonista cree haber encontrado el alivio tan esperado a su soledad, el destino indicaba que se tenían que separar... Sin embargo, la efímera felicidad de las noches blancas le devolvió la ilusión y la esperanza, junto con el gran aprendizaje de amar libremente.

- Este audiolibro está narrado en Español neutral. La vida en Saint Petersburg, un pequeño pueblo situado a orillas del Mississippi, al suroeste de Estados Unidos, es tan tranquila que incluso puede resultar aburrida. Pero Tom Sawyer, un muchacho curioso y travieso, se entretiene con cualquier hecho cotidiano, como pintar una valla, o no tan cotidiano, como perseguir a un malvado asesino o ir en busca de un tesoro, acompañado de su inseparable amigo Huck. Así, Tom es un niño idealista y sensible que cree en la justicia y Huck es un fiel defensor de la libertad, quien, al haber sido abandonado por sus padres, vaga por las calles y es cuestionado por la mirada prejuiciosa de los adultos.

El sueño del príncipe

Author: Fiódor Dostoyevski Narrator: Varios Narradores Release Date: May 2020

- Este audiolibro está narrado en Español neutral. En la ciudad de Mordasoff, Marya Aleksandrovna Moskalyova, una ambiciosa mujer, intenta casar a su hija Zina, de veintitrés años con el adinerado y noble anciano Príncipe 'K', quien tras haber volcado su carruaje pasa por la casa en la que ellas viven para que le asistan. Zina es considerada mayor para estar soltera y, entre las razones que explican por qué aún no se ha casado, la principal es el siniestro rumor sobre algunas extrañas relaciones que tuvo hace un año y medio con un pobre maestro de la escuela del distrito. Reticente a los deseos de su madre, Zina entorpece la situación mientras su madre continúa con su plan con persuasión y astucia. El sueño del príncipe plantea una farsa que combina lo satírico y lo grotesco, con lo patético y sentimental. Es una novela corta escrita en 1859, y trata, con un gran sentido del humor, varios de los temas que obsesionaban a Dostoyevski tales como la exploración de la vida rusa, lo ocultos y las maniobras psicológicas reveladas en el comportamiento humano.
