Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced `Oliver Twist', the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870, he was buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
This reissued recording of Stewart's touted Broadway performance might prove to be the enduring interpretation of Dickens's beloved tale of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and the ghosts of past, present, and future who catalyze his transformation. In a production stripped of sound effects, Stewart's theatrical talents take center stage. Reading with a voice that it is at once commanding and fragile, he creates a Scrooge of unexpected complexity and pathos. A spare and dazzling listen that might be the best rendition of the classic since the 1951 Alistair Sim production. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
Gr 5-8-Lynch's dark and brooding, ethereal illustrations are pitch-perfect in this beautifully imagined version of the tale. The artist moves from full spreads of breathtaking landscapes to framed views of quiet interior scenes with ease, echoing the pace of the tale as Scrooge is whisked from place to place across time and then pulled into quiet, intimate moments.
