The Novels of Charles Dickens: An Introduction by David Timson to Barnaby Rudge

Regular Price:$0.00

Publisher's Summary

David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature. Listen to Barnaby Rudge narrated by Sean Barrett.

For the background to this historical novel, a tale of mystery, suspense and unsolved murder, Dickens chose the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots of 1780. Mayhem reigns in the streets of London, vividly described by Dickens, and the innocent Barnaby Rudge is drawn into the thick of it. Against the public disorder, Dickens tells of the private discord within families - with fathers and sons at loggerheads - and creates a wealth of colourful characters: the sinuously evil Lord Chester; the pretty and vivacious Dolly Varden; and the host and regulars at the Maypole Inn - a symbol of security in those uncertain and violent times.

Listen to Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens.

    "My ears are an aching for Barnaby Rudge"

    Good earwatering intro to Barnaby Rudge. And it was free. If you are on the fence on buying classics I recommend this introduction.
