“One of the most significant works of the nineteenth century.” (Lionel Trilling)
Compelling, fluent, beautiful.
Nicholas Nickelby. Both have characterisations that are descriptively magnificent and story lines that 'race' along in a linguistically serpentine adventure.
William Dorrit ( little Dorrit's father).
Funny .......but yes if the truth must be known I have taken to extra long walks just to listen.
Charles Dickens is my penchant at the moment. Simon Vance has made the journey just that much more colorful.
Simon Vance interpreted each of the characters, bringing mood, tone and light to this narrative.
