THE SONG OF ROLAND

by | Read by a Full Cast

Classics • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

No member of this cast is a household name, but all of them demonstrate high-quality dramatic skills in the presentation of the twelfth-century epic French poem considered by many to be the first great piece of French literature. The narrator presents the poem as a troubadour would have recited it at the time of its composition. The other actors read the document with clarity and verve. The poem tells of the valorous deeds of seventh-century French soldiers who fight Muslims. Because it portrays a battle, this audiobook contains graphic depictions of violence and is not for the faint of heart. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
