Описание товара: "Barnaby Rudge"

This is the "Penguin English Library Edition" of "Barnaby Rudge" by Charles Dickens "I dreamed...I dreamed just now that something - it was in the shape of a man - followed me - came softly to me - wouldn't let me be - but was always hiding and crouching, like a cat in dark corners, waiting till I should pass; when it crept out and came softly after me..." Set against the backdrop of the Gordon Riots of 1780, Charles Dickens' novel "Barnaby Rudge" is a story of mystery and suspense which begins with an unsolved double murder and goes on to involve conspiracy, blackmail, abduction and retribution. Through the course of the novel fathers and sons become opposed, apprentices plot against their masters and Protestants clash with Catholics on the streets. And, as London erupts into riot, Barnaby Rudge himself struggles to escape the curse of his own past. With its dramatic descriptions of public violence and private horror, its strange secrets and ghostly doublings, "Barnaby Rudge" is a powerful, disturbing blend of historical realism and Gothic melodrama. "The Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
