CLASSICS A Very Short Introduction

by | Read by Tim Bentinck

Contemporary Culture • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

This production is very short, but it deals more with our relationship with classics than with the classics themselves. Tim Bentinck's narration is lively without being showy, as befits a book of popular scholarship. He reads in a pleasant British accent and gets to show off only rarely, such as putting on a decent American accent for quotes from Jefferson. His German is also good. This is the underappreciated kind of reading that sounds straightforward and ordinary but requires practice and skill. The material is interesting when substantive, less so when theoretical, but Bentinck carries it all off well. W.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
