    Story
    (18)

    Noble Prize winner T. S. Eliot wrote some of the best-known, most widely discussed poetry of the past 100 years. He was a daring and uncompromising innovator. With dramatic, original music, and expressive interpretation, this recording dramatizes why his works continue to influence literature - and touch contemporary listeners.

    Included are "The Love Son of J. Alfred Prufrock", "The Hollow Men", "Preludes", and "Portrait of a Lady".

    Words, music, images.

    Franz Kafka's Trial


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Clarity, emphasis, rhythm.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes: "This is the way the world ends..."


    Any additional comments?

    I respectfully disagree with some of the other reviewers: 1) this is not elevator music, 2) the music does enhance the words.
