A Dickens of a City
Charles Dickens is the ultimate London writer; his is the authentic voice of the city. But how familiar are you with his individual style?
Dickens portrays a London in transition as it settles into the Victorian period. Old inns and counting houses reach out from old London; so do imprisonment for debt and the risky business of stagecoach travel.
This tour features readings from Dickens which evoke his urban insights, founded on the observations of the journalist and shot through with human understanding.
