Viagens de Gulliver

Viagens de Gulliver

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: Diversos Release Date: 01/01/2010

A trilha sonora da versão em áudio de Viagens de Gulliver acompanha os diferentes momentos da história. Na primeira parte, instrumentos delicados ajudam a criar a ambientação de Lilipute, país de seres minúsculos visitado por Gulliver. Depois, os timbres sonoros ganham corpo quando Gulliver visita Brobedinguenague, terra habitada por homens e mulheres que para ele são verdadeiros gigantes. A última parte, que acontece em um mundo em que os cavalos têm uma participação bastante diferente da que conhecemos no mundo dos homens, é marcada por uma trilha baseada em relinchos e batidas de cascos. Vozes: Barros Batista (imperador Golbasto); Di Ramon (Pregoeiro, Rei, personagem indefinido e som de cavalos); Giuliano Frade (narrador); Mauricio Sterchele (Hurgo e Amo). Co-produção da Livro Falante com a Editora DCL. Duração: cerca de 2 horas.

The British Short Story - Volume 1 - Aphra Behn to Mary Shelley

The British Short Story - Volume 1 - Aphra Behn to Mary Shelley

Author: Aphra Behn, Jonathan Swift, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Narrator: Eve Karpf, Ghizela Rowe Release Date: 01/10/2020

These British Isles, moored across from mainland Europe, are more often seen as a world unto themselves. Restless and creative, they often warred amongst themselves until they began a global push to forge a World Empire of territory, of trade and of language.Here our ambitions are only of the literary kind. These shores have mustered many masters of literature. So this anthology's boundaries includes only those authors who were born in the British Isles - which as a geographical definition is the UK mainland and the island of Ireland - and wrote in a familiar form of English.Whilst Daniel Defoe is the normal starting point we begin a little earlier with Aphra Behn, an equally colourful character as well as an astonishing playwright and poet. And this is how we begin to differentiate our offering; both in scope, in breadth and in depth. These islands have raised and nurtured female authors of the highest order and rank and more often than not they have been sidelined or ignored in favour of that other gender which usually gets the plaudits and the royalties.Way back when it was almost immoral that a woman should write. A few pages of verse might be tolerated but anything else brought ridicule and shame. That seems unfathomable now but centuries ago women really were chattel, with marriage being, as the Victorian author Charlotte Smith boldly stated 'legal prostitution'. Some of course did find a way through - Jane Austen, the Brontes and Virginia Woolf but for many others only by changing their names to that of men was it possible to get their book to publication and into a readers hands. Here we include George Eliot and other examples.We add further depth with many stories by authors who were famed and fawned over in their day. Some wrote only a hidden gem or two before succumbing to poverty and death. There was no second career as a game show guest, reality TV contestant or youtuber. They remain almost forgotten outposts of talent who never prospered despite devoted hours of pen and brain.Keeping to a chronological order helps us to highlight how authors through the ages played around with characters and narrative to achieve distinctive results across many scenarios, many styles and many genres. The short story became a sort of literary laboratory, an early disruptor, of how to present and how to appeal to a growing audience as a reflection of social and societal changes. Was this bound to happen or did a growing population that could read begin to influence rather than just accept?Moving through the centuries we gather a groundswell of authors as we hit the Victorian Age - an age of physical mass communication albeit only on an actual printed page. An audience was offered a multitude of forms: novels (both whole and in serialised form) essays, short stories, poems all in weekly, monthly and quarterly form. Many of these periodicals were founded or edited by literary behemoths from Dickens and Thackeray through to Jerome K Jerome and, even some female editors including Ethel Colburn Mayne, Alice Meynell and Ella D'Arcy.Now authors began to offer a wider, more diverse choice from social activism and justice - and injustice to cutting stories of manners and principles. From many forms of comedy to mental meltdowns, from science fiction to unrequited heartache. If you can imagine it an author probably wrote it. At the end of the 19th Century bestseller lists and then prizes, such as the Nobel and Pulitzer, helped focus an audience's attention to a books literary merit and sales worth. Previously coffeehouses, Imperial trade, unscrupulous overseas printers ignoring copyright restrictions, publishers with their book lists as an appendix and the gossip and interchange of polite society had been the main avenues to secure sales and profits.

Within these volumes are 151 authors and 161 miniature masterpieces of a few pages that contain story arcs, narratives, characters and happenings that pull you one way and push you another. Literature for the ears, the heart, the very soul. As the world changed and reshaped itself our species continued to generate words, phrases and stories in testament of the human condition. This collection has a broad sweep and an inclusive nature and whilst you will find gems by D H Lawrence, G K Chesterton, Anthony Trollope, Oscar Wilde, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker and many, many others you'll also find oddballs such as Lewis Carroll and W S Gilbert. Take time to discover the black humour of Violet Hunt, the short story craft of Edith Nesbit and Amy Levy, and ask why you haven't read enough of Ella D'Arcy, Mary Butts and Dorothy Edwards.

Los Viajes de Gulliver - dramatizado

Los Viajes de Gulliver - dramatizado

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: Niloofer Khan, Pablo López Release Date: 01/06/2019

Los viajes de Gulliver es una sátira en prosa, y la obra más conocida del escritor irlandés Jonathan Swift. La novela se nos presenta como la narración inconfiable de Lemuel Gulliver, un cirujano y capitán marino que ha viajado por todo el mundo, encontrándose con aventuras fantásticas e increíbles. tPrimero, las naves de Gulliver naufragan en la isla de los Liliputs, donde los habitantes miden sólo 15 centímetros de altura. Sus otros viajes lo llevan entre otros, a Brobdingnag, un país poblado por gigantes, y a Laputa, una isla voladora. Conoce a personas inmortales y caballos tan inteligentes que han domesticado a criaturas humanas de desarrollo primitivo. La novela data de 1725, una época en donde el mundo para los europeos todavía era inexplorado, y descubrimientos sorprendentes aún estaban esperando. Pero también es una sátira de la naturaleza humana, la insuficiencia y el deseo de sorprender y mentir. Por esta razón, en su tiempo Los viajes de Gulliver no solo se podía leer como una novela aventurera, sino también como una sátira política tan amarga, que Swift durante mucho tiempo solo se atrevió a ser anónimo.

Les voyages de Gulliver

Les voyages de Gulliver

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: Pierre Vaneck Release Date: 01/12/2012

Où l'on voit Lemuel Gulliver, chirurgien de marine, naviguer vers Bristol. Après un naufrage, il se retrouve sur l'île de Lilliput, dont les habitants, les Lilliputiens, ne mesurent qu'environ six pouces de haut (env. 15 cm). Plusieurs aspects de la société lilliputienne semblent bien plus avancés que l'Angleterre de l'époque, pourtant les peuples passent leur temps à faire la guerre. Après bien des aventures, Gulliver découvre l'origine de la guerre entre Lilliput et Blefuscu qui est l'île voisine : un roi a voulu imposer le côté par lequel devaient être cassés les œufs à la coque ; d'où le nom des partisans de chaque doctrine, les Gros-boutiens et les Petits-boutiens. Swift tend à y démontrer le ridicule des dogmes.

Jonathan Swift: Gulliver's Travels (Marbie Studios)

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: Adriana Castillo Release Date: 01/10/2017

'I felt something alive moving on my left leg ... when bending my Eyes downwards as much as I could. I perceived it to be a human Creature not six inches high'  Shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters - with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnm's and the brutish Yahoos - give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behavior. Swift's savage satire view mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves.
