Sonnets from the Portuguese Audiobook

Sonnets from the Portuguese Audiobook
Written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Read by Jane Horrocks

Sonnets from the Portuguese, is a downloadable  audiobook collection of forty-four love sonnets by Elizabeth Barrett Browning read by the award winning English actress Jane Horrocks

The collection was acclaimed and popular even in the poet's lifetime and it remains so today. Elizabeth was initially hesitant to publish the poems, feeling that they were too personal. However, Robert insisted that they were the best sequence of English-language sonnets since Shakespeare's time and urged her to publish them.

Jane Horrocks brings these poems to life in her own romantic and refreshing way for Silksoundbooks. Available in MP3 and iPod audiobook format for just £7.95 for immediate download.

The Rape of the Lock and Other Poems Audiobook

The Rape of the Lock and Other Poems Audiobook
Written by Alexander Pope
Read by Emilia Fox

The unabridged audio book The Rape of  The  Lock satirises a petty squabble over the theft of a lock of hair as recounted to Alexander Pope by a friend.   Pope wrote a mock-heroic narrative  parodying the gods and goddesses of  the epic style. Although comic at times, Pope never loses sight of the fragile nature of beauty.

Alexander Pope (1688-1744) is considered by many to be the greatest poet of the eighteenth century and is the third most quoted writer after Shakespeare and Tennyson.

Emilia Fox has recorded this specially selected audio book of some of Pope’s best loved poems for Silksoundbooks, bringing her own love of the works to her readings.

Beowulf Audiobook

Beowulf Audiobook
Written by Anonymous
Read by Julian Glover

Julian Glover’s audio book version of Beowulf takes the poem back to its origins as a spoken tale. He has taken the essence of the poem and with a scholarly eye to the British Museum’s manuscript, created a truly Bardic performance. Beowulf’s battles against Grendel (the monster who takes you in your sleep) and the original lethal female – his mother who comes to avenge her son’s killing, are faithfully transformed into a roaring reality.
