Opis produktu/serii

Even Lady Bobbin could not prevent the day from being marked by a good deal of crossness, much over-eating, and a series of startling incidents. The battle opened, as it were, with the Christmas stockings. For as long as Christmas has been celebrated, poets and writers have sought to explore every aspect of it, whether the story of the Nativity, gatherings with family and friends, or the festive traditions that have grown over the centuries. A Literary Christmas is a seasonal anthology collecting poems, short stories and prose extracts by some of the greatest poets and writers in the English language. Like Charles Dickenss ghosts of Christmas past and present, these texts represent times old and new from John Donnes Elizabethan hymn to the baby Jesus to Rudyard Kiplings Christmas in India, from Thomas Tusser counting the cost of a Tudor feast to P.G. Wodehouses wry short story about Christmas on a diet. Enjoy a convivial Christmas Day as described by Nancy Mitford. Venture out into the snow in the company of Dickenss ever-popular Mr Pickwick. Entertain the children with the seasonal tales of Dylan Thomas, Kenneth Grahame and George Mackay Brown. For any lover of great literature, A Literary Christmas is the perfect gift. Authors also include: Jane Austen, George Eliot, G. K. Chesterton, D. H. Lawrence, Emily Brontë, Thomas Hardy, Christina Rossetti, Samuel Pepys, Anthony Trollope, and Benjamin Zephaniah
