LibriVox recording of Brand by Henrik Ibsen. (Translated by Charles Harold Herford.) Read in English by Expatriate Inflamed by what he saw as his Norwegian homeland's shocking betrayal of Denmark after the Prussian invasion of Danish territory, Ibsen wrote "Brand" as an indictment of human complacency and rigidity of mind. Composing this "dramatic poem" from his self-imposed exile in Italy, Ibsen had long agonized over the stodgy provincialism of his countrymen, but the...

This version of The Passionate Pilgrim,...

LibriVox recording of Reginald, by Saki. Read in English by Librivox volunteers. Saki was the pen name of the British author Hector Hugh Munro (1870 - 1916). His witty, biting and occasionally odd short stories satirised Edwardian culture. Saki is considered a master of the short story and has been compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker as well as Noel Coward and Oscar Wilde (who clearly influenced Saki). His first collection of short stories, Reginald, was published by Methuen Press in 1904...

It was first published in 1851 as a serial in the magazine Household Words, which was edited by Charles Dickens.
