STUDENTS AND ADULT AUDIENCESThe story of Charles Dickens .The best writer from England.

by  Lucienne Sharpe- Touch the Sky

Program image

Listening to the life of Charles Dickens we will begin to understand the many strands that led to him becoming such a writer.
The visual imagery is clear when we see how he lived and how his life developed. Such a man with humility. We will discuss his writings and listen to them too , old London as it really was in those days and how it formed the characters such as Oliver Twist which were not far from the truth.Through hearing his writings we can imagine how the Characters become so real to us.We will see pictures of how these Characters looked both in real life and through his eyes. We will also hear his words and discuss.Perhaps we will read aloud too to each other to get a feel of his vision.
