FIVE full years of broadcasting have not sufficed to diffuse a universal art and technique of listening, and there are still many people who listen too much or too little, too diligently or too carelessly—listeners carpingly critical, listeners fatuously complacent, listeners blase, listeners ignorant, listeners inept.

In this talk Professor Campbell will discuss Euripides and his work, with special reference to the Hippolytus.

' and ' Is there a criminal " class " ? '
