Meant for reading

10 episodes, 1959, KQED (San Francisco)

From WNET:

"This ten-program series is a spoken anthology of great literature chosen and read by John W. Dodds, professor of English and director of special programs in humanities at Stanford University. The programs are divided into six categories: freedom, mortality, nature, stories in verse, satire and love. The readings are from authors as varied as Socrates, Shakespeare, Donne, Benchley, Whitman, Milton, Benet and Emily Dickinson. Each program blends philosophy and literature around a central theme. The series was produced for KQED, San Francisco."
