    On the surface, the Victorian age is one of propriety, industry, prudishness and piety. But scratch the surface and you’ll find scandal, sadism, sex, madness, malice and murder. Presented by Stephen Fry, this series delves deep into a period of time we think we know, to discover an altogether darker reality. The stories we’re told offer a different perspective on an era which underwent massive social change. As education, trade, technology and culture blossomed, why was there an undercurrent of the ‘forbidden’ festering beneath Victorian society?

    This collection of masterful reinterpretations brilliantly demystifies and breathes new life into Shakespeare's work, demonstrating the continued resonance of a playwright whose popularity remains more than 400 years after his death. Now, the passion, heartbreak, deception, reconciliation, and mortality of Shakespeare’s originals can be understood by all, without the need to cross-reference to an enjoyment-sapping study guide.

    Zügellosigkeit, Lebenslust, Mord und Totschlag, Triumph und Tragödie: Die griechischen Göttersagen sind wilder und wüster als das Leben selbst und bieten damit alles, was sich Leser wünschen. Die alten Griechen inspirierten unter anderen Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce und Walt Disney. In Stephen Frys brillanter Nacherzählung erwachen die alten Sagen zu neuem Leben. Wir verlieben uns mit Zeus, sehen die Geburt der Athene, nehmen mit Kronos und Gaia Rache an Uranos, wir weinen mit König Midas und jagen mit der wunderschönen und furchtlosen Artemis.

    Stephen Fry believes that if you can speak and read English, you can write poetry. But it is no fun if you don't know where to start or have been led to believe that anything goes. Stephen, who has long written poems, and indeed has written long poems, for his own private pleasure, invites you to discover the incomparable delights of metre, rhyme and verse forms.

    Stephen Fry's charmingly misanthropic send-up of the English mystery features an unlikely but necessary hero: Ted Wallace, AKA the Hippopotamus, a failed and disolute poet, recently fired theater critic, and muckraker of modern irrationality, whose war against the unreasonable finds sudden purpose investigating a series of supposed miracles at a mansion in the country. "I've suffered for my art, now it's your turn." So begins the tale of Ted Wallace, unaffectionately known as the Hippopotamus.
