Audible Editor Reviews

For this academic overview of English language masters and masterpieces, author Charles Lamarck draws from the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, Jonathan Swift, Lord Byron, Charlotte Brontë, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Jane Austen, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and many others. Alec Sand reads prose and poetic selections during short, focused segments to connect hundreds of years of English themes and influences, providing examples from Anglo Saxon writings (ca. 500) through the end of the Victorian age in order to explain and highlight this story of literary evolution.

Publisher's Summary

    "Narration is horrible"

    This book truly has the worst narration I've ever heard. I don't even know if the book is any good since I couldn't listen to more than five minutes.
