Editor reviews

This selection from the Favorite Essays collection presents Charles Lamb’s "Dream-Children; A Reverie", first published in his most well-known 19th-century work Essays of Elia. "Dream-Children" is characterized by a kind of melancholic nostalgia, and constitutes a rich reflection on the nature of childhood and memory.
Neville Jason gives life to Lamb’s words in his performance of this entrancing piece, perfectly capturing the wistful reminiscence in this story and slipping easily into the role of its narrator, a father faithfully relaying the tales of a long-lost childhood to his own children.

This is an essay from the Favorite Essays collection.
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.
