Date: May 2011

Duration: 4 hours 56 minutes

Summary:

Here, in this unusual collection, are some of the greatest essays in Western literature. Witty, informative and imaginative; the topics vary from starvation in Ireland, fine China, the extension of railways in the Lake District and the tombs in Westminster Abbey. A little like after-dinner monologues, they are passing thoughts expressed as journalism. Neville Jason reads with urbane clarity.

Written by Michel de Montaigne, Jonathan Swift, Thomas Carlyle, Joseph Addison, Samuel Johnson
