    You Are There is the best radio dramatization I have ever heard. Each show begins with "live" background coverage of the historical event, and then the "on the scene reporters" take over. Everybody knows there were no radio announcers onboard the Nina, Pinta, or Santa Maria, (or from Ancient Greece, Medieval France, or the Battle of Gettysburg either!) but you will be transported back in time anyway as the show "broadcasts" from the ships, the shore, and from Spain.

By bringing true feelings to these stories, Andersen’s tales have become part of universal folklore.

    Aristotle’s Poetics is the earliest-surviving work of dramatic theory and the first fully intact philosophical treatise to focus on literary theory. In it, the respected Greek sage offers an account of what he calls "poetry" (which the Greeks understood to literally mean "making"), examining its "first principles" and identifying its genres and basic elements, including what he terms drama-comedy, tragedy, and the satyr play–as well as lyric poetry, epic poetry, and iambic pentameter, which he always associates with wit.
