The Picture of Dorian Gray Audiobook

The Picture of Dorian Gray

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Jake Urry, Joanne Evans (credits) Release Date: March 2021

Captivated by the allure of his own portrait, Dorian Gray gives his soul in exchange for eternal youth and beauty. His friend Lord Henry Wotton draws him into a double life of secret vice, while to the world outside he preserves his immaculate facade. As his hidden portrait becomes uglier with each new sin, Dorian begins to lose control, and his past comes around to haunt him. Oscar Wilde's only novel is half gothic horror, half morality tale, and is as timeless as his plays and poems. First published in 1889, this unabridged audiobook edition narrated by Jake Urry captures the wit, the charm and the horror of Wilde's most controversial work.

The Short Stories of William Pett Ridge Audiobook

The Short Stories of William Pett Ridge

Author: William Pett Ridge Narrator: David Shaw-Parker, Ghizela Rowe, Jake Urry Release Date: January 2020

William Pett Ridge was born at Chartham, near Canterbury, Kent, on 22nd April 1859.His family’s resources were certainly limited. His father was a railway porter, and the young Pett Ridge, after schooling in Marden, Kent became a clerk in a railway clearing-house. The hours were long and arduous, but self-improvement was Pett Ridge’s goal. After working from nine until seven o’clock he would attend evening classes at Birkbeck Literary and Scientific Institute and then to follow his passion; the ambition to write. He was heavily influenced by Dickens and several critics thought he had the capability to be his successor.From 1891 many of his humourous sketches were published in the St James's Gazette, the Idler, Windsor Magazine and other literary periodicals of the day.Pett Ridge published his first novel in 1895, A Clever Wife. By the advent of his fifth novel, Mord Em'ly, a mere three years later in 1898, his success was obvious. His writing was written from the perspective of those born with no privilege and relied on his great talent to find humour and sympathy in his portrayal of working class life.Today Pett Ridge and other East End novelists including Arthur Nevinson, Arthur Morrison and Edwin Pugh are being grouped together as the Cockney Novelists. In 1924, Pugh set out his recollections of Pett Ridge from the 1890s: “I see him most clearly, as he was in those days, through a blue haze of tobacco smoke. We used sometimes to travel together from Waterloo to Worcester Park on our way to spend a Saturday afternoon and evening with H. G. Wells. Pett Ridge does not know it, but it was through watching him fill his pipe, as he sat opposite me in a stuffy little railway compartment, that I completed my own education as a smoker”.With his success, on the back of his prolific output and commercial success, Pett Ridge gave generously of both time and money to charity. In 1907 he founded the Babies Home at Hoxton. This was one of several organisations that he supported that had the welfare of children as their mission. His circle considered Pett Ridge to be one of life's natural bachelors. In 1909 they were rather surprised therefore when he married Olga Hentschel. As the 1920’s arrived Pett Ridge added to his popularity with the movies. Four of his books were adapted into films. Pett Ridge now found the peak of his fame had passed. Although he still managed to produce a book a year he was falling out of fashion and favour with the reading public and his popularity declined rapidly. His canon runs to over sixty novels and short-story collections as well as many pieces for magazines and periodicals.William Pett Ridge died, on 29th September 1930, at his home, Ampthill, Willow Grove, Chislehurst, at the age of 71.He was cremated at West Norwood on 2nd October 1930.

The Short Stories of Oscar Wilde

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: David Shaw-Parker, Jake Urry Release Date: January 2020

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born on the 16th October 1854 in Dublin, Ireland. The son of Dublin intellectuals Oscar proved himself an outstanding classicist at Trinity College and then at Oxford. Wilde then moved to London and its fashionable cultural and social circles. With his biting wit, flamboyant dress, and glittering conversation, Wilde became one of the most well-known personalities of his day.His only novel, ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ was published in 1890 and he then moved on to writing for the stage with ‘Salome’ in 1891. His society comedies were enormous hits and turned him into one of the most successful writers of late Victorian London.Whilst his masterpiece, ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, was on stage in London, Wilde had the Marquess of Queensberry, the father of his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, prosecuted for libel. The trial unearthed evidence that caused Wilde to drop his charges and led to his own arrest and trial for gross indecency. He was convicted and imprisoned for two years hard labour. It was to break him.On release he left for France. There he wrote his last work, ‘The Ballad of Reading Gaol’ in 1898. He died destitute in Paris at the age of forty-six sipping champagne a friend had brought with the line ‘Alas I am dying beyond my means’.

The Short Storeis of Hugh Walpole Audiobook

The Short Storeis of Hugh Walpole

Author: Hugh Walpole Narrator: Jake Urry Release Date: January 2020

Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole, CBE was born in Auckland, New Zealand, on March 13th, 1884. His father was an Anglican clergyman which involved postings abroad. Walpole’s early educated was by a Governess until, in 1893, his parents decided he needed a better education and the young boy was sent to England.He first attended a preparatory school in Truro followed by Sir William Borlase's Grammar School in Marlow in 1895, where he was bullied, frightened and miserable. The following year, 1897, the Walpole’s returned to England and Walpole became a day boy at Durham School. His refuge was the local library and its books. From 1903 to 1906 Walpole studied history at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and there, in 1905, had his first work published, the critical essay "Two Meredithian Heroes". Walpole was also attempting to cope with and come to terms with his homosexual feelings and to find “that perfect friend”. After a short spell tutoring in Germany and then teaching French at Epsom in 1908 he immersed himself in the literary world. In London he became a book reviewer for The Standard and wrote fiction in his spare time. In 1909, he published his first novel, ‘The Wooden Horse’ followed, in 1911, by ‘Mr Perrin and Mr Traill’. In early 1914 Henry James, in an article for The Times Literary Supplement, ranked Walpole among the finest of the younger British novelists.As war approached, Walpole’s poor eyesight disqualified him from service and so he worked, based in Moscow, reporting for The Saturday Review and The Daily Mail. Although he visited the front in Poland, his dispatches failed to stop comments that he was not ‘doing his bit’ for the war effort. Walpole was ready with a counter; an appointment as a Russian officer, in the Sanitar. He explained they were “part of the Red Cross that does the rough work at the front, carrying men out of the trenches, helping at the base hospitals in every sort of way, doing every kind of rough job”.During a skirmish in June 1915 Walpole rescued a wounded soldier; his Russian comrades refused to help and this meant Walpole had to carry one end of a stretcher, dragging the man to safety. He was awarded the Cross of Saint George. For his wartime work he was later awarded the CBE in 1918.After hostilities ended Walpole continued to write and publish and began a career on the highly lucrative lecture tour in the United States.In 1924 Walpole met Harold Cheevers, who soon became his constant companion and remained for the rest of his life; “that perfect friend”. Hollywoods MGM studios, invited him in 1934 to write the script for a film of David Copperfield. Walpole also had a small acting role in the film. In 1937 Walpole was offered a knighthood and accepted although Kipling, Hardy, Galsworthy had all refused. “I'm not of their class... Besides I shall like being a knight," he said.His health was plagued by diabetes, made worse by the frenetic pace of his life. Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole, CBE, died of a heart attack at his home at Brackenburn, on June 1st, 1941. He was 57.

Nevinson, William Pett Ridge and Thomas Burke show The East End as it really was.

The Poetry of Harold Munro Audiobook

The Poetry of Harold Munro

Author: Harold Munro Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Gideon Wagner, Jake Urry Release Date: January 2020

Harold Edward Munro was born on the 14th of March 1879 at 137 chaussée de Charleroi, Saint-Gilles, Brussels.He was educated at Radley College and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. On 2nd December 1903 in Ireland Munro married Dorothy Elizabeth Browne. Unfortunately the marriage was not to last and they separated in 1908. In 1906 his first collection of poetry, Poems, was published. Many volumes followed but Munro was never regarded as highly as his contemporaries. Perhaps his forays into magazines, editing and publishing and his bookshop has unfairly diminished his poetic contribution.In 1912 he became the editor of the influential magazine, The Poetry Review, but was ousted after a year. In 1913 he founded the Poetry Bookshop in Bloomsbury. From here he would also publish new volumes of poetry by himself and other writers. With Edward Marsh he published annual volumes of Georgian Poetry in the process establishing it as a very fine poetry movement. Munro was often tortured by his sexuality and although he married twice some of his poems reveal his truer feelings. As the Great War smothered Europe with its monstrous destruction of a generation, the War Poets spoke.Munro himself wrote only a few war poems but his ‘Youth in Arms’ quartet, written in the first months of the carnage, was an early attempt to explore the human psychology of soldiering and to understand how ungrudgingly youth dies.After the war Munro continued his efforts with the Poetry Bookshop and expanded into several new projects. He was searching both as a writer, and as a publisher, for the middle ground that was both culturally exciting and commercially worthwhile.In his later years his mood darkened, his drinking escalated and became a real problem. Sadly amongst the stresses and the strains he contracted tuberculosis. Harold Edward Munro died on the 16th March 1932 aged 53. He was cremated at Golders Green crematorium.It was later remarked of him ‘Perhaps no one did more for the advancement of twentieth-century poetry’.
