Classics • 1 hr. • Abridged • ©

Both the student and connoisseur of the classics will enjoy this series of inexpensive audiobooks, each of which includes a Dover-Thrift edition of the text. The newcomer to classic poetry and prose, in particular, may experience in their spoken form an awakening to the beauty and power of these literary masters. Actor Charles Keating brings just the right thespian touch to his reading of "Araby," "Eveline" and "Counterparts," rousing from the pages the smells, sounds and atmosphere of Joyce's beloved Dublin. The dialogue in the stories particularly benefits from Keating's gift for mimicry; his imitations of Dublin's working-class men and women add a delightful documentary touch to the stories. Though there are only three stories on the tape, those left wishing for more can console themselves with reading the other twelve stories of The Dubliners in the book that accompanies the tape.
