A portrait of the artist as a young man by James Joyce( Sound Recording )
23 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 422 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"--Compact disc container

The life and works of W.B. Yeats by W. B Yeats( Sound Recording )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 169 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

The Seven Pillars of Wisdom is a monumental work in which he chronicles his role in leading the Arab Revolt against the Turks during the First World War. A reluctant leader, and wracked by guilt at the duplicity of the British, Lawrence nevertheless threw himself into his role, suffering the blistering desert conditions and masterminding military campaigns which culminated in the triumphant march of the Arabs into Damascus
