    Venus and Adonis is Shakespeare's narrative poem about the love of the goddess Venus for the mortal youth Adonis, dedicated partly to his patron, the Earl of Southampton (thought by some to be the beautiful youth to which many of the Sonnets are addressed).  The poem recounts Venus' attempts to woo Adonis, their passionate coupling, and Adonis' rejection of the goddess, to which she responds with jealousy, with tragic results.  This recording features three different readers performing the narration, Venus, and Adonis. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

    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

    We are living in difficult times, and for many of us, it has become harder than difficult. Many of us go to bed at night wondering how we made it through the day and if tomorrow will be our last. The political climate is divisive and hateful, while the entertainment of our lives is marred with sexual harassment and fights for social justice. Still, God walks with us. Families have been serving God for generations, and like many, they, too, are marred with hate and vindictive fabricators. It is easy to believe in God when your friends are your family and your neighbors stand with you for peace. See, God does walk with those that try to be good.

    “Lies, wishes, fantasies—all the weaponry of compassionate imagination at war with society—deploy with delicious satire in [Muske-Dukes’s] first book.” —Library JournalA poet, novelist, critic, and essayist, Carol Muske-Dukes has established herself as one of the preeminent talents of modern American writing. Birth, loss, imprisonment, and renewal are among the subjects of Camouflage, her first published book of poems. These twenty-eight poems are a young writer’s stream of consciousness set in formal verse. In “Photographer,” Muske-Dukes slides between light and dark. “Salad Days: Nebraska, 1964,” relives a plane ride over the state’s rolling plains. And the tongue-in-cheek yet respectful “Swansong” evokes a childhood ballet class, taught by a faded prima ballerina. Each poem is a skin, a mask, a camouflage meant for survival—a place of regeneration and change.
