What was it like to love, live, and rebel in Britain during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries? These beloved British novels offer three dramatically different, but universally recognisable, experiences.
Read by three luminaries of the stage and screen: Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, and Sir John Gielgud.
Feel the pang of awakened desire, the ache of loneliness, and the sting of trouble up ahead, in three stories that continue to hold great resonance for the twenty-first century listener.
This collection includes:
• Silas Marner by George Eliot, read by Dame Judi Dench
• Sons and Lovers by D. H. Lawrence, read by Sir Ian McKellen
• Bleak House by Charles Dickens, read by Sir John Gielgud
