Good anthology of hard sci-fi authors. excellent selection and I don't think any of the stories contained were remotely duds!

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of gems, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on a whim, loving the works of the husband and wife team Jordi Savall and (the sadly late) Monserrat Figueras. The Song of the Sybil (in Occitan) is my favourite so far and it is interesting to hear spoken recitals of texts from the period - these are in French and Latin. Easy recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing piece of music, 2 Jan 2013

The Song of the Sibyl is a hidden gem. Although banned by the Catholic Church, the tradition of singing the piece continued in the vernacular across Spain. This is one of the best versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great work., 18 Nov 2012

I think this is going to be a long term favourite for me. A brilliant album. I'm not sure where to place it, but it stands up there against Cinematic Orchestra, Harold Budd, David Sylvian (ambient work). I look forward to more!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting read., 12 Dec 2000
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book very interesting and thought provoking, especially after having seen photos and documentaries on some of the erotic material discovered at Pompeii and other Roman sites. My only problem was perhaps that some of the translations from Latin into American slang do not travel well for those of us who don't speak American English. However, I don't think that Amy Richlin can be blamed for attempting to make the translations come alive for her audience. I would recommend this book to anyone investigating gender and the issues of sexuality from a historical perspective.
