Hackett's history ranges from ancient through Renaissance medicine, psychology, religion, and literature to provide an erudite but comprehensible study of Elizabethan ideas of the mind and how it works. Helen Lloyd's performance is the text's perfect match. Her clarity and vocal precision mirror the clarity of the writing, which is rich and detailed but not obscure. The prevailing accuracy of her emphases and phrasing, and her measured, thoughtful pace support listener comprehension. Her serious, plummy tone and refined English accent fit the high level of the historical and philosophical discussion, but her amiable and unaffected manner helps keep it engaging. Lloyd seems to think through the material, turning this learned and intellectually rewarding book into an absorbing listening experience.
