  • "And his armour fell rattling around..."

    Overall

    There is surely no need to give my opinion of the story here so I'll only mention the narration.
    I was not completely satisfied by the style of the reading for this audio book when it started but, after time, I found it grew on me. There is a rhythm to it that the narrator's lack of inflection lets through. The text itself and the repetitions within it carried me along at a comfortable pace and I soon found myself muttering along as familiar phrases were repeated.
    Details stayed with me long after the book had ended and I can still recall substantial portions now as I write this several months after listening. They play back in John Lescault's distinctive voice and the images they conjure remain as vivid.
    In conclusion, an unsettling start turned into a memorable experience. Pretty soon I'll be set to listen to the whole lot again.

    Little is known about the Ancient Greek oral poet Homer, the supposed 8th century BC author of the world-read Iliad and his later masterpiece, The Odyssey. These classic epics provided the basis for Greek education and culture throughout the classical age and formed the backbone of humane education through the birth of the Roman Empire and the spread of Christianity.

    "very moving"

    Overall

    I would like to defend the narrator: the reading may be somewhat old-fashioned, but the voice is handsome with the appropriate dose of drama, and the speed is just right. I got hooked on it from the start and know I will listen to this recording again and again.

  • "An entertaining listen"

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    This was a very easy listen, a well compiled narration with just the right mix of "Life" and readings so as to inform with a light touch. It may be short but I think it gives good value.

    It sets the poems against the background of Yeats' life at the time of writing which enhances the poems and the readers are excellent. The one small downside is that Naxos put brief musical inserts which bear no relation to the text and are just there to mark a break, which I myself find tiresome, although others may not. That's a small irritation and it's only with the production.

    I found it entertaining and informative, a good combination.

    William Butler Yeats remains one of the most popular poets of the 20th century.

    "The Lake Isle of Innisfree," "He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven," "Down by the Salley Gardens," "The Secret Rose": these are just a few of the poems that made William Butler Yeats an international figure. Born in Dublin in 1865, Yeats drew strength from the Irish tradition, as can be seen in this special audiobook, which presents the most important poems in the context of his life and ambitions.

    Homer's Iliad and Odyssey are unquestionably two of the greatest epic masterpieces in Western literature. Though more than 2,700 years old, their stories of brave heroics, capricious gods, and towering human emotions are vividly timeless. The Iliad can justly be called the world's greatest war epic. The terrible and long-drawn-out siege of Troy remains one of the classic campaigns. The Odyssey chronicles the many trials and adventures Odysseus must pass through on his long journey home from the Trojan wars to his beloved wife.

    Emily Dickinson today has gained her deserved place alongside Walt Whitman as one of the two greatest American poets of the 19th century. Beginning always with particulars of personal experience, her poems encompass life and death, love and longing, joyfulness and sorrow. With sparse, precise language, she conveyed a penetrating vision of the natural world and an acute understanding of the most profound human truths.

    Ovid's sensuous and witty poem brings together a dazzling array of mythological tales, ingeniously linked by the idea of transformation, often as a result of love or lust, in which men and women find themselves magically changed into new and sometimes extraordinary beings. Beginning with the creation of the world and ending with the deification of Augustus, Ovid interweaves many of the best known myths and legends of ancient Greece and Rome.
