Tales of Ovid

Ted Hughes Tales From Ovid, read by Ted Hughes.
from Faber-Penguin AudioBooks

Beautifully retold stories from ancient mythology such as Echo and Narcissus, Pyramus and Thisbe (in case you've ever wondered about the story behind Bottom's play in A Midsummer Night's Dream) that foolish king Midas, and Arachne. Ted Hughes gives his own spin on the ancient stories, which is only right for a poet who has something to say.

This audiobook is recommended for when you are in a still mood, or even a sleepy mood, not wishing to do or think about anything else.
