A Gothic pantomime
What did you like most about The Castle of Otranto?
There are some wonderful moments of 'humanity' in here -like the princesses debate over who gets the man. Shows how little human nature has changed over the centuries.
Would you be willing to try another book from Horace Walpole? Why or why not?
The language is archaic - I doubt I could read it but audio makes it accessible.
Have you listened to any of Neville Jason’s other performances? How does this one compare?
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
The book that launched a thousand goths
Any additional comments?
Very interesting from the historical view point - but now it is more pantomime than gothic. Would make a good stage play or film.
May be 'rewrite' into modern language and setting cf romeo & julliet and west side story would do well. The essense of the story is strong.
