The Pickwick Papers (The Novels of Charles Dickens: An Introduction by David Timson)

David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature. Listen to The Pickwick Papers narrated by Anton Lesser.

The Pickwick Papers, Dickens’ first novel, is a glorious romp through the pre-Reform Bill England of 1827. Traveling by stage-coach, the innocent but well-intentioned Pickwick and his equally naive friends, all in search of ‘interesting scenes and characters’, are repeatedly saved from disaster by the resourceful and quick-witted Sam Weller.
