    Beschreibung von Audible

    Patrick Tull’s lively performance of The Vicar of Wakefield shows contemporary listeners why Oliver Goldsmith’s novel was one of the most popular works of the 18th century.

    The 1766 novel’s title character, Dr. Primrose, is the kind and generous man of the cloth whose prosperous and happy family life is upended when his money manager leaves town with his savings. As a result, the wedding of the vicar’s son is cancelled and the family is forced to relocate to a poorer parish owned by caddish Squire Thornhill, who takes an interest in the vicar’s daughter.

    Tull’s briskly paced performance animates this gentle story of human decency triumphing over treachery.

    Inhaltsangabe

    Oliver Goldsmith earned instant acclaim when he published The Vicar of Wakefield, a marvelous mixture of burlesque and satire.

    The simple village vicar, Mr. Primrose, is living with his wife and six children in complete tranquility until unexpected calamities force them to weather one hilarious adventure after another. Goldsmith plays out this classic comedy of manners with a light, ironic touch that is irresistibly charming.
