The Odyssey (Radio Collection) BBC Radio 4 full-cast production


The Odyssey (Radio Collection) BBC Radio 4 full-cast production   

Одиссея Гомера без сомнения гениальное произведение древности. Гениальное оно потому, что даже сейчас, по прошествию многих столетий, оно все еще не потеряло актуальности. Это произведение о войне и мире, о жизни и смерти,о любви и предательстве и, главное, о всё побеждающей силе надежды. О том, что любой человек,даже Царь, может потерять все,но если сохранить надежду и  непреклонную волю,то можно преодолеть многое, и, кажется, даже невозможное.Вообщем, каждый найдет в этом произведении, что-то свое, жены - пример верности, мужья-пример хитрости и храбрости и так далее.
    Одиссей, Царь Итаки, отправляется на войну, оставляя свою любимую жену, малолетнего сына и Царство. Он вернется очень не скоро, через 20 лет. Чтобы вернуться, ему предстоит преодолеть множество трудностей, но кончится все хорошо и, оказавшись на Итаке, он снова обретет все, что казалось уже безнадежно потеряным и более недостижимым.
     This is a BBC Radio 4 full-cast production of Homer's epic seafaring adventure, dramatised by award-winning poet Simon Armitage, and starring Tim McInnerny and Amanda Redman 'My fame is written in the heavens, and my fate too...' So speaks Odysseus as he starts to recount his struggles to sail home to Ithaca, in one of the greatest pieces of storytelling in Western literature. "The Odyssey" is his incredible traveller's tale - and also the story of his faithful wife, Penelope who waits for him, besieged by suitors, and their son, Telemachus who has a quest of his own. In a twenty-year journey, fabulous fantasy mixes with extraordinary reality as Odysseus encounters enchantresses, nymphs, monsters, prophets and ghosts. From the temptations of the lotus flowers and the Sirens' song to the horrors of the Cyclops' cave and the Land of the Dead, the story of his encounters is riveting. We hear of Circe, who turned his men into swine; Calypso, who held Odysseus prisoner for seven years; and the dreadful six-headed monster Scylla who devoured some of his crew. And we hear of the Gods, who have a vital role to play... Dramatised by major contemporary poet Simon Armitage to celebrate the return of the Olympics to Athens, this full-cast production brings Odysseus's adventures to vivid life, conveying all the excitement, suspense and poetry of the original. A stunning aural rollercoaster ride, "The Odyssey" will have your heart in your mouth and stir your soul.
