あらすじ・解説

They are icons of the literary world whose soaring works have been discussed and analyzed in countless classrooms, homes, and pubs. Yet for most listeners, the living, breathing human beings behind the classics have remained unknown - until now. In this utterly captivating audiobook, Dr. Elliot Engel, a leading authority on the lives of great authors, illuminates the fascinating and flawed members of literature's elite. In lieu of stuffy biographical sketches, Engel provides fascinating anecdotes.

You'll never look at these literary giants the same way again.

Stimulating...

A stimulating presentation of curious info about authors I love. I learned a lot of interesting stuff that I had not heard before, even though I am an English teacher with 30 years experience. Engel talks quickly but clearly and with enthusiasm and love for his topics. I have heard him in person five times, and this audio presentation equals his live performances.

Entertaining but not all the facts are straight

Any additional comments?

It was fun to learn about these authors, but I noticed that some of the facts regarding Poe's life were wrong. Otherwise a great listen.

A great selection of all of their works!

This collection not only contains the most famous work from each author, but a lot of pieces that are not usually featured. It makes for a great sampling from an author you may already be passingly familiar with.

Fascinating look into these poets

I am absolutely fascinated by the history behind these poets - this book allowed me a level of understanding that I have not received from any other source. Well done. Lengthy at times but well worth it.

Unbelievably amazing

This is an unbelievably amazing collection of the personal stories of Wilde, Poe & Frost. It's astounding how their individual tales influences their writings.

Great introduction to some of the best.

I am in love with Wilde,
heavily pity Poe,
and frankly, couldn't really care for frost.
If you've always wondered why those three names are familiar, this is a great book to become a little more acquainted with these three gentlemen .
