Beautiful Prose. Disappointingly read.!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: De Profundis (Smartpass Cds) (Audio CD)
As a great lover of De Profundis, and the joyful owner of a facsimile copy, I really looked forward to hearing Colin Redgrave reading this audio version, especially as it was actually recorded in Reading Jail. Alas though that was the first big mistake as far as I am concerned, as the echo of the empty cell that we are supposed to imagine, really does at times drown out Corin Redgraves emotion filled voice. A voice, which a lot of the time is not very clear anyway, and made worse by an poor attempt at an Irish accent. An accent which incidentally, by the time Wilde wrote this letter, he had deliberately lost.
I am very disappointed with this reading, but would not dissuade anyone from buying it, as we all hear things differently..!
