HANNAH ARENDT A Life in Dark Times

by | Read by Laural Merlington

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

An intellectual giant and cultural theorist of the 1950s and beyond, Hannah Arendt focused her principal writings on considerations of the conflict between civilization and barbarism as well as anti-Semitism. Narrator Laural Merlington's somewhat raspy timbre captures the listener's attention at the outset but wears on the ear a bit in time. This is a concise work for such a complex life, offering a sympathetic perspective of Arendt--who escaped Hitler's Germany for the United States in 1933--and examining her evolution as a controversial thinker. Despite her timbre, Merlington skillfully weaves an appropriately paced, mature, and thoughtful narration to suit the graceful examination of a life fully lived.
