Author-narrator Marilyn Singer and narrator Joe Morton transport listeners of all ages into the world of Greek mythology with this collection of reverso poetry—poems that can be read top to bottom or bottom to top. Each work imparts a different meaning depending on the direction of the reading. Ponder whether Pandora or Zeus might be responsible for the release of the contents of the infamous box, for example, or how different are the feelings of Icarus and his father. Singer and Morton narrate with purposeful pacing, leaving time between words, phrases, and lines. Their elocution includes crisp words, elongated sounds emphasizing alliteration, and moments of high drama that are loud or sneering, melancholic or playful. Each poem is followed by a brief explanation of the myth it is based on. Spot-on sound effects and music, and an author's note complete the production.
