5.0 out of 5 stars Dickens the man and the reciter, 2 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Charles Dickens and His Performing Selves: Dickens and the Public Readings (Paperback)
Malcolm Andrew's book combines careful academic research with readability. The picture that emerges of Charles Dickens is of a man driven by the need to connect with his readership and for whom public recitation became a natural continuation of his life as a published author. For most of those who went to hear him recite - in the UK and the United States - the memory of this famous author conjuring up, though a combination of voice and gesture, a range of Dickensian characters will have stayed with them for the rest of their lives. This book, too, is memorable and one that readers will want to keep on their bookshelf.
