Poetics

Gelesen von Robert Foster

(3,588 Sterne; 17 Bewertungen)

Aristotle’s Poetics from the 4th century B.C. aims to give a short study of storytelling. It discusses things like unity of plot, reversal of situation, and character in the context of Greek tragedy, comedy and epic poetry. But it still applies today. It is especially popular with screenwriters as seen in many script gurus’ how-to books. (Summary by Robert Foster) (2 hr 23 min)

Really Enjoyed This Reader

(5 Sterne)

One of the more enjoyable readings I've heard on LibriVox. I do hope that he records more classics in the future.

A pretty close call to dislike

(3 Sterne)

I found the reader's pacing poor, his pronunciation wanting, and tone static. Aristotle is intriguing as always.

bad

(0,5 Sterne)

This poor guy struggled over the basic terms of the work.
