Straw dogs by Sam Peckinpah( Visual )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and German and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this thriller, perhaps Sam Peckinpah's most controversial film, David (Dustin Hoffman), a young American mathematician, moves with his English wife, Amy (Susan George), to the village where she grew up. Their sense of safety unravels as the local men David has hired to repair their house prove more interested in leering at Amy and intimidiating David, beginning an agonizing initiation into the iron laws of violent masculinity that govern Peckinpah's world. Working outside the U.S. for the first time, the filmmaker airlifts the ruthlessness of the western frontier into Cornwall in Straw Dogs, pushing his characters to their breaking points as the men brutalize Amy and David discovers how far he'll go to protect his home--culminating in a harrowing climax that lays out this cinematic mastermind's eloquent and bloody vision of humanity"--Container
A portrait of the artist as a young man by James Joyce( Recording )

42 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'A portrait of the artist as a young man, ' Joyce describes the early life of Stephen Dedalus: significant memories from infancy, schooldays, family life, his first taste of sin, guilt, repentance-- and his passage to freedom as he elects to leave Ireland forever. This is, in effect, an autobiography. Stephen is Joyce; every person he encounters and every incident he experiences, is drawn from life. The writing, though, displays the colour and imagination of the very finest fiction, in language which cries out to be read aloud"--Container

The life and works of W.B. Yeats by W. B Yeats( Recording )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Butler Yeats remains one of the most popular poets of the 20th century. The Lake Isle of Inisfree, He wishes for the cloths of heaven, Down by the Salley Gardens, The secret rose - these are just a few of the poems that made William Butler Yeats an international figure. Born in Dublin in 1865, Yeats drew strength from the Irish tradition, as can be seen in this special audiobook, which presents the most important poems in the context of his life and ambitions. His poetic urgency was fueled by an active and varied life, as he gained his inspiration from the men and women he knew, classical sources and contemporary politics
