    This unique poetic translation by Herbert A. Kenny, historian and poet, is the first that incorporates the Biblical, theological and historical allusions of the greatest poem im Christendom into the text itself. It can now be appreciated without a glossary or accompanying notes. Listen as the liquid lines take you through the horrors of the "Inferno", the mysteries of "Purgatorio" and the glories of "Paradiso".

    The author's extensive knowledge and enthusiasm about the topic brings out the world of Dante's Divine Comedy like I have never experieced before reading these poems over the years. If you are at all interested at all in this classic work, then don't hesitate and pick up this masterful course.

  • Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles: A Radio Dramatization

    The people of Earth are preparing for war - a war that could potentially destroy the planet. Explorers are sent to Mars to find a new place for humans to colonize. Bradbury's Mars is a place of hope, dreams, and metaphor, where a fine dust settles on the great empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. It is here the invaders have come to despoil and commercialize, to grow and to learn - first a trickle, then a torrent, rushing from a world with no future toward a promise of tomorrow. The Earthman conquers Mars... and then is conquered by it.

    The Colonial Radio Players are a remarkable group that dramatizes various works and does it with such finesse. The Martian Chronicles is no exception; I have read this classic by Ray Bradbury many times but this dramatization makes the book come alive in a way that I have never experienced before. I highly recommend this or any other dramatization by The Colonial Radio Players. Especially at the price they are asking for such works. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
