Summary

Desire Under the Elms is a 1924 play written by Eugene O'Neill. Like Mourning Becomes Electra, Desire Under the Elms signifies an attempt by O'Neill to adapt plot elements and themes of Greek tragedy to a rural New England setting. It was inspired by the myth of Phaedra, Hippolytus, and Theseus. A film version was produced in 1958, and there is an operatic setting by Edward Thomas.

    The World's most famous instruction manual on love and sexual technique was written in the ancient Hindu language of Sanskrit seventeen centuries ago. Long accepted as the definitive treatise upon the subject of sexual behaviour, the author of the Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana succeeded in tackling this delicate theme with commendable candour and wit.  From how and where to 'congress'? With whom and with how many? It is as relevant and instructive today as when it was written.

    TROPIC OF CANCER BY HENRY MILLER.  Tropic of Cancer is regarded as a masterpiece with Time magazine rating it as one of the 100 most important novels of the 20th century.  It is an unforgettable, confessional, warts and all novel of the author and his friends riotous adventures in Paris during the Depression.  It changed censorship laws in the US where it was published decades after it was written and reading it today amplifies the debt that modern writers owe Miller.  Ian McShane’s rich and sexy voice provides the layers and depth to a compelling listening experience.
