Charles Dickens and his Performing Selves: Dickens and the Public Readings

£29.99

Product description

Paperback published by Oxford University Press, 2007 (first edition 2006).

Charles Dickens had three professional careers: novelist, journalist and public Reader. For the last 12 years of his life he toured Britain and America giving 2-hour readings from his work to audiences of over two thousand. These readings were highly dramatic performances in which Dickens's great gift for mimicry enabled him to represent the looks and voices of his characters. This book tries to recreate the sense of how those readings were performed and how they were received, how Dickens devised his stage set and tailored his books to make them into performance scripts, how he conducted his reading tours all around the country and developed a quite extraordinary rapport with his listeners.

Paperback with a mark on the back cover where price label has been removed, otherwise like new.
