More About Charles Dickens & David Timson
Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation, but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and "slave" factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work. David Pascoe is Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Glasgow. He has also edited Thackeray's The Newcomers for Penguin Classics.
Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and died in 1870.
Reviews - What do customers think about Our Mutual Friend (The Complete Classics)?
Wonderfully read! Jul 9, 2007
As Our Mutual Friend is one of my favorite books, I was prepared to be very critical of this book on tape. And I was well rewarded. David Timson's voice is pleasent and he does each charater with different voices in order that one may tell them apart without Timson needing to read who is speaking. The box contains 28 CDs each in a cardboard sleeve with the first words of each track printed on it. Complete and unabridged.
