Summary

The first century fabulist Gaius Julius Phaedrus was the first recorded versifier of Aesop’s fables into Latin, retold in a loose iambic metre. They are composed in a lively terse and simple Latin verse, with some elaborate style, serving as excellent model for students of the language. They were written not only to amuse and teach, but also to provide compelling satirical comments on the turbulent social and political life of first century Rome. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Phaedrus’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)

    In the postwar years, M-G-M adapted many of its movie properties for radio -- and one of its most successful transfers was The Story of Dr. Kildare, starring Lew Ayers in the title role and Lionel Barrymore as his crusty, harrumphing mentor Dr. Gillespie. As in the movies, the radio Kildare offers engrossing, well-produced medical melodramas revolving around the patients and staff at Blair Memorial Hospital. Featured are a cast of talented supporting players including Ted Osborne as the sniffy hospital administrator Dr. Carough, Jane Webb as Nurse Mary Lamont, and Virginia Gregg as the eavesdropping Nurse Parker, called “Nosy Parker” by the ever-cantankerous Dr. Gillespie. Also appearing are such radio stalwarts as William Conrad, Stacy Harris, and Jack Webb.
