BOOKS THAT HAVE MADE HISTORY Books That Can Change Your Life

by | Read by J. Rufus Fears

Contemporary Culture • 18 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2005

In describing great books, Professor Fears makes classics such as The ILIAD, BEOWULF, and The AENEID quite comprehensible. The listener is treated to lectures about each work, as well as its intended audience and theme. Covering the third millennium B.C. to the twentieth century, Fears is upbeat and keeps the listener's attention even though the subject matter is at times weighty. His pacing allows for breaks between lectures without losing momentum. Listeners will reminisce about returning to college to study literature and the great civilizations. Accompanied by transcripts of the lectures and other course guidebooks, this new Teaching Company course is well worth the 18 hours expended.
