The Torah

The Torah

Author: Isaac Leeser Narrator: Frank Bryce, Hannah Smith, Scarlett Martin Release Date: 01/08/2021

The Torah (Hebrew: תּוֹרָה‎, 'Instruction', 'Teaching' or 'Law') is the first part of the Tanakh, the Hebrew Bible. It contains the first five books (Pentateuch or Five Books of Moses), namely (in their commonly used names) Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. This is known in the Jewish tradition as the Written Torah. In rabbinic literature the word Torah denotes both the five books (Hebrew: תורה שבכתב‎, romanized: torah shebichtav, 'Torah that is written') and the Oral Torah (Hebrew: תורה שבעל פה‎, romanized: torah shebe'al peh, 'Torah that is spoken'). The Oral Torah consists of interpretations and amplifications which according to rabbinic tradition have been handed down from generation to generation and are now embodied in the Talmud and Midrash. Rabbinic tradition's understanding is that all of the teachings found in the Torah (both written and oral) were given by God through the prophet Moses, some at Mount Sinai and others at the Tabernacle, and all the teachings were written down by Moses, which resulted in the Torah that exists today. According to the Midrash, the Torah was created prior to the creation of the world, and was used as the blueprint for Creation. The majority of Biblical scholars believe that the written books were a product of the Babylonian captivity (c. 6th century BCE), based on earlier written sources and oral traditions, and that it was completed with final revisions during the post-Exilic period (c. 5th century BCE). Traditionally, the words of the Torah are written on a scroll by a scribe (sofer) in Hebrew. A Torah portion is read publicly at least once every three days in the presence of a congregation. Reading the Torah publicly is one of the bases of Jewish communal life.

Mrs Dalloway

Mrs Dalloway

Author: Virginia Woolf Narrator: David Crandall, Hannah Smith Release Date: 01/03/2021

Mrs Dalloway (published on 14 May 1925) is a novel by Virginia Woolf that details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, a fictional high-society woman in post-First World War England. It is one of Woolf's best-known novels. Created from two short stories, Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street and the unfinished The Prime Minister, the novel addresses Clarissa's preparations for a party she will host that evening. With an interior perspective, the story travels forward and back in time and in and out of the characters' minds to construct an image of Clarissa's life and of the inter-war social structure. In October 2005, Mrs Dalloway was included on Time's list of the 100 best English-language novels written since Time debuted in 1923.

The Complete Make Believe Stories Series

The Complete Make Believe Stories Series

Author: Laura Lee Hope Narrator: Hannah Smith Release Date: 01/11/2019

The Complete Make Believe Stories Series includes 11 children's books. The Make Believe Stories series, begun in 1918 under the pseudonym of Laura Lee Hope (best known for the Bobbsey Twins series), consisted of 12 books. The final book was published in 1923, while the series continued to be printed in different versions for years to come. It is highly likely that Lilian Garis and her husband Howard R. Garis were responsible for the writing of these books for the Stratemeyer Syndicate, although other syndicate authors may have been involved. Included in this collection: 1. The Story of a Sawdust Doll (1920) 2. The Story of a White Rocking Horse (1920) 3. The Story of a Lamb on Wheels (1920) 4. The Story of a Bold Tin Soldier (1920) 5. The Story of a Candy Rabbit (1920) 6. The Story of a Monkey on a Stick (1920) 7. The Story of a Calico Clown (1920) 8. The Story of a Nodding Donkey (1921) 9. The Story of a Plush Bear (1921) 10. The Story of a Stuffed Elephant (1922) 11. The Story of a Woolly Dog (1923)

Meditations

Meditations

Author: Marcus Aurelius Narrator: Frank Bryce, Hannah Smith Release Date: 01/08/2019

Meditations (Medieval Greek: Τὰ εἰς ἑαυτόν, romanized: Ta eis heauton, literally 'things to one's self') is a series of personal writings by Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD, recording his private notes to himself and ideas on Stoic philosophy. Marcus Aurelius wrote the 12 books of the Meditations in Koine Greek as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. It is possible that large portions of the work were written at Sirmium, where he spent much time planning military campaigns from 170 to 180. Some of it was written while he was positioned at Aquincum on campaign in Pannonia, because internal notes tell us that the first book was written when he was campaigning against the Quadi on the river Granova (modern-day Hron) and the second book was written at Carnuntum. It is unlikely that Marcus Aurelius ever intended the writings to be published and the work has no official title, so Meditations is one of several titles commonly assigned to the collection. These writings take the form of quotations varying in length from one sentence to long paragraphs.

Collected Works

Collected Works

Author: Franz Kafka Narrator: Frank Bryce, Hannah Smith Release Date: 01/06/2019

The Collected Works include the most important novellas and short stories of Franz Kafka. Franz Kafka (3 July 1883 - 3 June 1924) was a German-speaking Bohemian Jewish novelist and short-story writer, widely regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature. His work, which fuses elements of realism and the fantastic, typically features isolated protagonists facing bizarre or surrealistic predicaments and incomprehensible socio-bureaucratic powers, and has been interpreted as exploring themes of alienation, existential anxiety, guilt, and absurdity. His best known works include Die Verwandlung (The Metamorphosis), Der Process (The Trial), and Das Schloss (The Castle). The term Kafkaesque has entered the English language to describe situations like those found in his writing. Included in this collection: 1. The Metamorphosis (1915) 2. A Report for an Academy (1917) 3. Up in the Gallery (1919) 4. Before the Law (1919) 5. In the Penal Colony (1919) 6. A Hunger Artist (1922)
