Description
A keen playwright and actor, Charles Dickens drew inspiration from the theater, and personally adapted many of his own fictional works. This collection presents a sampling of eight of Dickens's musings, critiques, and opinions on one of his most revered passions and pastimes. In "The Amusements of the People" and "Astley's," Dickens enthusiastically describes working-class audiences and the melodramas they enjoyed, while "Private Theatres" is an amusing behind-the-scenes look at the production of a play. Here too are Dickens's portraits of some of the noted actors of his day, and several of his affectionate addresses to the General Theatrical Fund.
