Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Carrington MacDuffie brings her vocal skills and narrative art to this remarkable collection of Robinson's essays—originally speeches given at various colleges and universities. MacDuffie's elegant intonation comes through in these challenging and thought-provoking works. Her clear delivery gives shape to the complex arguments and rewards the listener as the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist ranges from her contrarian appreciation of Puritan texts to contemporary critiques of deterministic science. She particularly lambastes those who miss the connections between metaphysics and the idea of the soul, thereby detaching beauty from religious faith. Robinson's brilliance illuminates this audiobook, and she could have no better narrator than MacDuffie. A.D.M. 2018 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
