Descriptions du produit

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-12-Dicken's tale of private lives and public events takes place in the unrest of the 1780's London. This BBC production includes a full cast, music, and sound effects.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From AudioFile

This story was originally produced for BBC broadcast by talented creators of radio entertainment. Complete with sound effects, beguiling music, and a full cast of characters, this classic story is full of complicated conflicts, murder, blackmail and private tragedies. London in the 1870's is full of unrest and discontent. Model citizen Geoffrey Haredale combines efforts with a questionable character, John Chester, to break up the marriage between Haredale's niece and Chester's son. The cast of performers is superb, and the production possesses both the authenticity of a radio broadcast and the novelties of a theater production.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 un pas si petit Dickens que cela... 18 octobre 2005
Par earthlingonfire TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS VOIX VINE
Format:Broché
Lorsque j'ai lu Barnaby Rudge, j'en attendais les délices d'un "petit" Dickens "de jeunesse", eu égard à la relative obscurité du titre. En fait j'ai eu confirmation que, de même que le plus petit Shakespeare est déjà grand, il n'y a pas de petit Dickens. Barnaby Rudge nous permet de découvrir des aspects de l'art de Dickens qui ne sont pas nécessairement mis en valeur dans ses autres romans. D'abord, c'est un roman historique au sens contemporain du terme, et je n'en connais pas d'autre exemple à cette époque : pour rendre compte des Gordon riots de 1780 à travers des faits inventés, Dickens s'est documenté en profondeur. Notre-Dame de Paris de Hugo, Waverley ou Rob Roy de Scott sont certes antérieurs, mais je ne trouve ni dans l'un ni dans les autres ni le sérieux du travail de recherche ni la fidélité aux détails que manifeste Dickens dans Barnaby Rudge. La modernité de Dickens éclate aussi dans le personnage-titre, simple d'esprit manipulé par les leaders des émeutes, qui ne peut manquer d'évoquer l'Idiot de Dostoïevski. Stylistiquement, enfin, Dickens révèle plus que dans aucun autre roman sa maîtrise du grand format au sens pictural : les scènes de foule sont à couper le souffle par leur ampleur et leur puissance dantesque dans l'hypotypose. Si vous connaissez déjà les grands classiques dickensiens, une vraie découverte vous attend.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't start here, but don't stop till you've read this 24 novembre 2001
Par Russael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Barnaby Rudge is an early Dickens novel, his first historical novel, of the Gordon riots of 1780, about fifty years before his time. The book is a mere 634 pages, that is, two thirds as long as Copperfield but a 100 pages longer than The Old Curiosity Shop. One of Dickens' strong points is atmosphere, and this novel is one of his best in that department. His description of the Maypole Inn and its proprietor, slow John, is marvelous. Much of the book describes the riots and their effect on various characters. Barnaby himself is an idiot, but such an excellent character for all that. The villians actually have good qualities in this book. And by the way, the Raven Grip is supposedly the model for Poe's raven. I would not start reading Dickens with Barnaby, but even though it's not as well known as ten other of his novels, I can highly recommend if you like other Dickens to give this book a read. I intend to reread it in my next round of Dickens rereading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An account of the Gordon riots of 1780. 3 février 2005
Par Shirley Schwartz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Dickens is one of my favourite authors, and I took up this book simply because I wanted to read all his books. "Barnaby Rudge", though is a little different than some of Dickens' other works. For one it's about a true historical happening. The riots of 1780 actually did occur. It's one of his shorter books, and it was written earlier on in his career. The book is really not where a reader should start with Dickens' books, but it should be read nonetheless. It still has the same great characterizations and atmosphere that we expect from Dickens, and it's still a good story. Barnaby is quite the character. We have to laugh at his antics, and Slow John at the Maypole Inn is absolutely wonderful. I read this book quite awhile ago, and while I'm writing this review, I'm thinking I need to reread it again. Wonderful atmosphere!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 An action-packed historical novel 11 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This is a well paced and fast-moving historical novel set during the anti-popery riots in London in 1780. Although not as grippingly exciting as Dicken's other historical novel, A Tale Of Two Cities, there is plenty of drama here to sustain the reader's interest.
The fictional characters are well woven into the historical setting, and the portrayal of these characters gives the book some of its best comic moments, from the suave Edward Chester, to the vengeful Simon Tappertit, to the spiteful Miss Miggs, to the devious hangman, Dennis. The hero of the book is Gabriel Varden, whom Dickens repeatedly describes, rather clumsily, as "the honest locksmith". Varden has to suffer constant friction in his own household between himself, his wife, his apprentice and his maid, and this agitation reflects the agitation of the masses in the streets.
One of the best features of the book is the way it successfully carries a number of plot lines. The main one of these concerns a murder committed many years previously for which no-one has been convicted. There are several other sub-plots such as the tension between the Catholic Haredale and the Protestant Chester, Joe Willet's love for Varden's daughter, the comical scheming of the apprentice locksmith against his master and the presence of a shadowy stranger who pursues Barnaby Rudge's mother. Some elements of the plot fizzle out a bit too easily towards the end, such as the attempt to kidnap Haredale's daughter, but the overall effect of the book is very satisfying.
This is one of Dicken's least remembered novels, but I think it is well worth reading and an excellent introduction to his work.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "Better to be mad than sane, here. Go mad." 27 septembre 2006
Par Mary Whipple - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Focused primarily on the "anti-popery" riots in London in1780, and filled with wild scenes of carnage involving a large cast of characters from all levels of society, Barnaby Rudge is Dickens's first historical novel, and it includes the real Lord George Gordon, a virulent anti-Catholic who whipped the populace into a frenzy. The author sets the scene for the tumult by first painting a picture of quiet village society in Chigwell in 1775, five years earlier, often using humor to depict the numerous characters.

Geoffrey Haredale, a Catholic, has inherited the estate of his brother Reuben, who was murdered twenty-two years before. He has brought up his niece Emma, who is in love with the kindly Edward Chester, a Protestant, the son of the odious Lord John Chester, who lives nearby. Dozens of characters populate the book--including Barnaby Rudge (the developmentally disabled son of Mary Rudge, who works on an estate), the Willetts (who run the Maypole Inn), Gabriel Varden (a locksmith) and his daughter Dolly (who eventually works for Emma Haredale), mysterious strangers, ghosts, a sinister blind man, and even Grip, Barnaby's talking raven.

The action takes off when the time shifts from 1775 to 1780, and the focus changes from village life and the sometimes amusing domestic concerns of the people to the growing anti-Catholic sentiment being stirred up in London. The humor, which has been a big part of the first part of the book, ends, and Dickens concentrates on the growing hatred and the battles spawned by that hatred, with good people being drawn into brutality that they would otherwise avoid. Violence and several deaths take place, the populace becomes a mob, and rioting leads to the burning of properties. The love stories, which have been a large part of the first section of the book, are put on the back burner for the major part of the book.

Written in 1841, this is Dickens's fifth novel, one which suffers from its original serialization and loss of focus. Though the atmosphere and some of the characters rank among Dickens's best, and some of the humor in the first part is delightful, the tone is inconsistent, changing with the riots and ensuing action. As is always the case with Dickens, all mysteries are cleared up at the end, with Reuben Haredale's murder solved and the whereabouts revealed of several characters who disappeared between 1775 and 1780. With hints of some of the greatness to come, this novel precedes David Copperfield, Bleak House, and A Tale of Two Cities, and shows Dickens experimenting with his themes and ideas. n Mary Whipple

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly Overlooked 8 novembre 2003
Par Robert Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is probably the most overlooked of Dickens' major efforts. It lacks the silly slapstick and joy of Pickwick Papers, and is missing the biting social commentary (at least not as biting) of Little Dorrit and Hard Times. Also, it is always listed in the "about the author" section as being somewhat of a commercial letdown at the time.
The truth is that it is a great book. It has enough silliness to let you know that it is Dickens, but is accompanied by a good bit of darkness. In fact, it's almost macabre at times.
In the end, this is a great story from a master storyteller. Isn't this the true benchmark of a classic? For all the ingenius stylism of "The Sound and the Fury" would we love it half as much (if at all) if the styling didn't accent a most captivating tale? Well, "Barnaby Rudge" is just that....a thoroughly captivating tale in the classic Dickens style.
