A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to ´´Our Father Below´´. At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation - and triumph over it - ever written. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joss Ackland.

The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1594. It was published in 1623. The play begins with a framing device, often referred to as the Induction, in which a drunken tinker named Sly is tricked into thinking he is a nobleman by a mischievous Lord. The Lord has a play performed for Sly´s amusement, set in Padua with a primary and sub-plot. The main plot depicts the courtship of Petruchio, a gentleman of Verona, and Katherina, the headstrong, obdurate shrew. Initially, Katherina is an unwilling participant in the relationship, but Petruchio tempers her with various psychological torments — the ´´taming´´ — until she is an obedient bride. The sub-plot features a competition between the suitors of Katherina´s more tractable sister, Bianca. The play´s apparent misogynistic elements have become the subject of considerable controversy, particularly among modern audiences and readers. It has nevertheless been adapted numerous times for stage, screen, opera, and musical theatre. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Trevor Howard, Margaret Leighton.

This delightful Washington Irving tale, based upon legends and folklore of his day, follows the loveable but lazy Rip Van Winkle´s escape from his constantly nagging wife into the peaceful hills of the Catskill mountains with his squirrel gun and his loyal dog, Wolf. There, he encounters a strangely attired gentleman who gets his help in carrying a huge vessel filled with liquor to a cavernous hideaway in the mountainside. Inside, a group of equally strange and morose men play ninepins as they quaff the liquor. After Van Winkle drinks to excess on the sly, he stumbles his way back to the woods and falls into a deep sleep beneath a tree. He awakens to find it is 20 years later - and the American Revolution has occured as he slept! 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Ian Davies.

Dostoevsky studied human nature with passion and precision. He plumbed the depths and never winced at what he found, even when it was beyond his understanding. This extraordinary novel is a recital of his findings, told in the story of four brothers: Dimitri, pleasure-seeking, impatient, unruly; Ivan, brilliant and morose; Alyosha, gentle, loving, honest; and the illegitimate Smerdyakov, sly, silent, cruel. What gives this story its dramatic grip is the part these brothers play in their father´s murder. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Walter Covell.

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. In this story of evil cunning perverting a once noble mind, radio captures Iago´s sly hints and boasts to the audience with shocking clarity. The listener is led along an emotional path that grips with fascinating horror until the play´s inevitably tragic conclusion. Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ray Fearon, Anastasia Hille, Full Cast.

Voltaire´s razor-sharp satire on philosophical optimism, Candide, is coupled here with another of the author´s most celebrated works, Zadig. Both challenge the moral and philosophical orthodoxies of the day with humor and sly wit, while parodying the clichéd formulas of so many contemporary novels.Candide traces the fortunes of its titular character, a staunch optimist who eventually becomes disillusioned by a series of hardships and misfortunes. Zadig likewise follows its main character Zadig, a Babylonian philosopher, as he is subjected to the whims of Fate and the machinations of those around him.
