    They are places rich in history, and some say, thick with the spirits of those who lived that history. This program is a captivating tour of ghostly America. Exhaustively researched and thoroughly captivating, Haunted History will have even diehard skeptics keeping the lights on at night.

    Starring Orson Welles, Anges Moorehead, and Ray Collins, The Count of Monte Cristo is a tale of revenge and retribution. Edmond Dantès, a young, energetic sailor, is falsely accused of treason on his wedding day and incarcerated in the forbidding Château d'If. His escape and ultimate revenge on those who wronged him makes this one of the most thrilling stories in French literature, as compelling now as when it was first published in 1846.

    What made the experience of listening to The Count of Monte Cristo (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

    I love the story - I love this old-timey scratchy quality, like we are all huddled around the radio listening to it. Only I'm in my car on the way to work cursing Jersey drivers.


    What does Orson Welles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Um, his voice?


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

    When he makes his escape!

    Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th century England.

    R is a young man with an existential crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. His ability to connect with the outside world is limited to a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend, Julie.

    Odysseus. Robinson Crusoe. Harry Potter. What do these memorable characters have in common? Why do we turn to certain stories again and again? And what impact have they made on world history? These 24 eye-opening lectures give fresh insight into some of the greatest heroes in world literature, from warriors such as Beowulf and Odysseus to unexpected heroes such as Uncle Tom and Sancho Panza. Professor Shippey gives you an inside glimpse into the writer's process.

    What did you like best about Heroes and Legends? What did you like least?

    Would you be willing to try another book from The Great Courses? Why or why not?

    Sure; some of them are great. Some are just really boring.


    Do you think Heroes and Legends needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Maybe a follow up book of more current characters? Or maybe I should have paid better attention in my lit classes in college.

    Life doesn't get more hilarious than when Chelsea Handler takes aim with her irreverent wit. Who else would send all-staff emails to smoke out the dumbest people on her show? Now, in this new collection of original essays, the number-one best-selling author of Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea delivers one laugh-out-loud moment after another as she sets her sights on the ridiculous side of childhood, adulthood, and daughterhood.
