Letters from England

By Karl Capek.

Read by Owen Teale.

For two months in 1924 the Czech writer and playwright Karl Capek travelled throughout England, Scotland and Wales. His witty, appreciative dissections of the 'English' national character and culture quickly established themselves as masterpieces of observation - and classics of modern Czech prose.

Translated by Geoffrey Newsome.
Abridged and produced by Emma Harding.

Duration:

20 minutes
