Classics • 7.5 hrs. • Anthology • © 1997

Included in this collection are the most anthologized short stories of the nineteenth century. They cover the humor of Twain and Bret Harte, the mystery of Poe, the madness of Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Ambrose Bierce, and a smattering of what's in between. Each of the fine actors chosen to read takes an individual story and shapes it with palpable intensity. Penguin has carefully matched their talents and vocal artistry to the individual stories, producing a lively, fast-paced audio collection that vividly depicts the American imagination. This collection is both enjoyable and useful to librarians, teachers and students of literature. P.E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
