The classic play about a woman’s fight for independence and her desire to break free of her role as housewife. One of the best-known, most frequently performed modern plays, A Doll’s House richly displays the genius with which Henrik Ibsen pioneered realistic prose drama. The central character, Nora, epitomizes the human struggle against the humiliating constraints of social conformity. Her ultimate rejection of a smothering marriage and life in a “doll’s house” shocked theatergoers of the late nineteenth century and opened new horizons for playwrights and their audiences. However, daring social themes are only one aspect of Ibsen’s power as a dramatist. A Doll’s House demonstrates his ability to create realistic dialogue and a suspenseful flow of events, and bring to life the psychologically penetrating characterizations that make the struggles of his dramatic personages utterly convincing. Here is a deeply absorbing dramatic work as readable as it is eminently playable. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
For ten exciting years, the Spider battled the underworld, imprinting his scarlet seal on the bodies of the criminals he slew. No one knew his name. His face was unknown. Pursued by the police, sought by the mob, the Master of Men crushed crime with a blazing ferocity never witnessed before or since. Now he’s back in a series of riveting audiobooks adapting his most intense adventures from the pages of The Spider magazine, as chronicled by Norvell W. Page, writing as Grant Stockbridge! Manhattan is under siege from a new brand of terrorist—a human monster who calls himself the Black Death. His weapon a choice: a virulent strain of Bubonic plague that strikes down its victims within hours. Unless the city fathers pay up, New York will become a charnel house of horrors. Can the Spider defeat this menace—or will Death’s black wings smother him too? This exciting audiobook is taken from the December, 1933 issue of The Spider.
Don Juan (Spanish), Don Giovanni (Italian) is a legendary, fictional libertine. Although the various iterations of the Don Juan myth show some variation, the basic story remains the same. Don Juan is portrayed as a wealthy, seductive libertine who devotes his life to seducing women, taking great pride in his ability to seduce women of all ages and stations in life. Don Giovanni, an opera composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte, is arguably the best-known version. First performed in Prague in 1787, it inspired works by E. T. A. Hoffmann, Alexander Pushkin, Søren Kierkegaard, George Bernard Shaw, and Albert Camus.Here, Librivox volunteers read an English translation of da Ponte's libretto.Dramatis Personae:Don Juan: Beth ThomasDonna Anna: AvailleDon Octavio: ToddHWDon Pedro: alanmapstoneDonna Elvira: Elizabeth KlettLeperello: Larry WilsonZerlina: Kristin GjerløwMasetto: John BurlinsonChorus woman: rotgoldChorus woman: KHandStage Directions & Editor: MaryAnnS
