Voces Populi

Gelesen von Don W. Jenkins

(5 Sterne; 1 Bewertungen)

F. Anstey was the nom de plume of Thomas Anstey Guthrie, a Londoner who was trained for the bar but found success as a writer of humorous pieces for Punch and humorous novels. Voces Populi, a collection of his Punch pieces, is considered to be among his best works. He treats an array of situations from the charlatan conjuror to a row over a lady's large, obstructive hat at the music hall. - Summary by Don W. Jenkins (4 hr 48 min)
