The Merchant of Venice Audiobook

The Merchant of Venice

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Randal Schaffer Release Date: March 2021

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” Bassanio is a man in love, but he does not have much money to his name, and thus is unable to woo the rich heiress Portia. His friend Antonio suggests that they borrow money from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender who has had many dealings with Antonio in the past. Shylock, being of Antonio’s ability to repay, agrees to grant the loan with a difficult condition. If the loan is not repaid in full by the agreed date, Shylock will take a pound of Antonio’s flesh. The loan is not paid in time, and what follows is a dramatic courtroom scene in which Shylock’s demands are met with legal intricacies that turn the tables on him. The lengthy legal discussion ends up with lives and fortunes on the line, and through the opposition’s knowledge of in-depth legal rules and policies, the result of the trial is not what anyone expects. Depending on the critical lens with which this text is approached, Shylock or Antonio can each be portrayed as the villain or hero from a certain point of view. The Merchant of Venice is often read and analyzed for its portrayal of Judaism and antisemitism, its spin on the common courtroom drama, and for Shakespeare’s signature witty writing and observations about humanity. It is a play that, like many of Shakespeare’s works, can be read and interpreted in many ways, and leaves the final judgments of the characters to the audience to decide.

“In Merry England in the time of old, when good King Henry the Second ruled the land, there lived within the green glades of Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham Town, a famous outlaw whose name was Robin Hood.” Robin Hood is one of the most well-known stories about a well-meaning outlaw.

He sets about on adventures through the country to recruit people to assist in his robberies, to cause mischief to the royalty who seeks to have him captures, and to give money and resources to the poor and needy in society. Howard Pyle’s novel was created by taking old legends and stories of adventurous and good-hearted bandits and turning them into a cohesive story. Robin Hood is a beloved classic, and remains a charming and fascinating work of adventure literature.

The Gorillas Want Bananas: The Lean Marketing Handbook for Small Expert Businesses Audiobook

The Gorillas Want Bananas: The Lean Marketing Handbook for Small Expert Businesses

Author: Debbie Jenkins, Joe Gregory Narrator: Randal Schaffer Release Date: January 2021

The Gorillas want Bananas is a real underwear changing book, both frightening and inspiring. Frightening when Debbie and Joe explain why the money I've wasted on marketing has been inneffective, you know; the radio and magazine ads that no one responds to, the flyers that end up in the bin. Money out the window for no return. Inspiring because there are other ways of doing it which the book lays out before you. But don't think this book will do it for you. You still need to take action your self. I read the book through and then went back and read it again. I found even more things of value the second time round. This book will change the way you do your marketing. Your underwear might never recover! Fergus Morley

Beowulf Audiobook

Beowulf

Author: Anonymous, Beowulf Narrator: Randal Schaffer Release Date: September 2020

Experience an epic story that has been passed across generations and centuries in Beowulf. The story begins with Beowulf, a hero among his people, offering his heroic services to the King of the Danes to expel a monster from the kingdom. The kingdom had been relentlessly attacked by Grendel, a monster descended from some of the earliest evil humans. Beowulf uses his might to dispose of the monster, as well as the monster’s mother, and thus seals his life’s purpose as a hero. He goes one to fight more battles in his future, forever a champion of his people. Beowulf is one of the most important works of Old English literature. This epic poem establishes many tropes that have survived through to modern literature, and the timeless story of a determined and brave hero will forever be relevant. Moreso than most, this poem is meant to be listened to audibly, as a continuation of the long-standing oral storytelling tradition. Listening to Beowulf in audio is a great way to feel connected to the ancient ancestors who passed this story among themselves for centuries.

The Tempest Audiobook

The Tempest

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Randal Schaffer Release Date: January 2020

Experience this InAudio unabridged presentation of The Tempest by William Shakespeare. The Tempest is a beautiful and sweeping drama by William Shakespeare, and is one of the Bard’s last plays.
