Here, in this unusual collection, are some of the greatest essays in Western literature. Witty, informative and imaginative, the topics vary from starvation in Ireland, fine China, the extension of railways in the Lake District, and the tombs in Westminster Abbey. A little like after-dinner monologues, they are passing thoughts expressed as journalism. Neville Jason reads with urbane clarity.

Place yourself in an 18th century brain
Would you listen to Favorite Essays again? Why?
I am working at the moment with 18th century literature. Listening to these essays helped me to place myself into that Augustan time period and helped me understand the concepts which were developing during this period. Sometimes this style of writing is easier to listen to than read.

Jonathan Swift, I enjoy his form of satire.
