Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A fantasy romp among knights, monsters, witches, and beautiful damsels. David Timson both conveys the fun and actually makes the poem easier to understand by interpreting it through his narration. He uses his voice richly and well to convey both the emotion and thought of the text with clarity and intelligence. He skillfully distinguishes and characterizes, especially, the male personae, sometimes using class and regional accents…Timson’s fine reading…[is] pleasurable entertainment.” AudioFile
