In some ways this is a heavy text, laden with conversational...

Librivox recording of Spirits in Bondage: a cycle of lyrics , by C.S. Lewis. Read by Robert Garrison Spirits in Bondage is C.S. Lewis's first book and the first of his works to be available in the public domain. It was released in 1919 under the pseudonym of Clive Hamilton and was written in a period of darker thought for C.S. Lewis than was later evidenced in his Christian apologist writings.

Librivox recording of Poetics , by Aristotle. Read by Robert Foster Aristotle's Poetics from the 4th century B.C. aims to give a short study of storytelling. It discusses things like unity of plot, reversal of situation, and character in the context of Greek tragedy, comedy and epic poetry. But it still applies today. It is especially popular with screenwriters as seen in many script gurus' how-to books. (Summary by Robert Foster) For further information, including links to online text, reader...

Librivox recording of Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen. Northanger Abbey is a hilarious parody of 18th century gothic novels. The heroine, 17-year old Catherine, has been reading far too many "horrid" gothic novels and would love to encounter some gothic-style terror -- but the superficial world of Bath proves hazardous enough.

Librivox recording of Heart of Darkness, by Joseph Conrad. Read by Kristin Luoma Set in a time of oppressive colonisation, when large areas of the world were still unknown to Europe, and Africa was literally on maps and minds as a mysterious shadow, Heart of Darkness famously explores the rituals of civilisation and barbarism, and the frighteningly fine line between them. We get the tale through a classic unreliable narrator, relating as Marlow, a ship's captain, tells how he was sent by the...
