BY ANY OTHER NAME A Cultural History of the Rose

by | Read by Jennifer M. Dixon

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

With this lengthy audiobook, listeners have the opportunity to dive into the allegorical and symbolic role of the rose across cultures and centuries. It's a fitting choice for narrator Jennifer M. Dixon, who sounds like someone you would encounter carefully tending an English rose garden. The audiobook is dense, having the sound of a meticulously researched humanities dissertation or lecture. Dixon's bland tone and slow pace enhance the soporific effect of the production. Listeners who persevere will be treated to an educational look at the world's most romantic flower.
