    Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar is a tragedy portraying the assassination of Caesar and its aftermath. As in much literature, the worries of the day were dramatized using history as a model - in this case Shakespeare encapsulated the fears that Queen Elizabeth hadn't named a successor and that civil war would result.  What makes Julius Caesar timeless, like so many of Shakespeare's plays, are the psychological complexities at work: the characters - such as Brutus - are not simply good or evil; rather they are rendered as flawed humans plagued by their conscious and led to action by their emotions. And because it's a Shakespearean tragedy, just about everyone in Julius Caesar ends up dead at the end.

    Once upon a time there was a little boy who had taken cold. He had gone out and got his feet wet; though nobody could imagine how it had happened, for it was quite dry weather. So his mother undressed him, put him to bed, and had the tea-pot brought in, to make him a good cup of Elderflower tea. Just at that moment the merry old man came in who lived up a-top of the house all alone; for he had neither wife nor children--but he liked children very much, and knew so many fairy tales, that it was quite delightful...

    The classic short story - To Build a Fire - by American author Jack London, is brought to life in ways he probably never imagined when it was published in 1908. The subtle blending of narration and music create a vivid image of the “Man” and his “Wolf Dog” as they set out on foot along the Yukon in temperatures colder than –50 F. With plans to meet his friends at a logging camp by 6:00pm, the Man finds himself pitted in a life and death struggle with nature. Whether or not you’ve read this great American classic, you’ll be riveted by this audio version with sound enhancements of the Man’s harrowing adventure in the Gold Rush Era of Alaska.Public Domain (P)2012 Brook Forest Voices

    The novel describes the life of a young man living through the revolution of 1848 and the founding of the Second French Empire, and his love for an older woman. Flaubert based many of the protagonist's experiences including the romantic passion on his own life. 'I want to write the moral history of the men of my generation—or, more accurately, the history of their feelings. It's a book about love, about passion; but passion such as can exist nowadays—that is to say, inactive.'
