"Evil, for which I live, consists, not in action, but in character. The bad man is dear to me." So the devil tells Markheim, the eponymous young man about which the first of three stories is written. The production--with sound effects and occasional music--is superb, and the recording includes an excellent essay on Stevenson's life. Charlton Griffin reads with force and talent, but these works are for a credulous, God-fearing public. Very little is left to the imagination. "Greed had made folds about his eyes. Evil smiles had puckered his mouth. The wolf and pig struggled together in his face. It was an eloquent, sharp, ugly, earthly countenance."
