Erotica Romana


Read by A. E. Maroney

(3.1 stars; 31 reviews)

Also known as the "Roman Elegies," Erotica Romana is von Goethe's literary tribute to human sexuality and eroticism. Written in 24 elegies to emulate classical Roman elegy writers such as Tibullus, Propertius, and Catullus, von Goethe creates a lyrical work of art that has often been subject to censorship.

Is this a computerized voice?

Could have fooled me! Also, why so many 1 - minute or shorter recordings? Why didn't they get bunched together so that the disclaimer wasn't repeated every 30 seconds!

disappointing

(0.5 stars)

I can't imagine you could find a more boring, monotone, disinterested reader. Blah is the word for this reading.

So monotone and it felt like the reader was bored!

Moroni damages librivox and Goethe.

(0.5 stars)

Monotonous. Jerky. Brutal. Surpassingly Unlistenable.
