Rogue Herries - by Hugh Walpole - BBC Radio Full-Cast Drama - cheops.torrent
A full-cast radio dramatisation of the 1930`s novel by Hugh Walpole.
Hugh Walpole wrote horror novels that tended more towards the psychological rather than supernatural, with a brooding underlying mysticism.
This is the first volume of the Herries Chronicle, which stand among Walpole's greatest works. Rogue Herries, they called him, this haughty, swaggering, wenching vagabond gentleman who sold his mistress for thirty pieces of silver and buried a witch in his garden. But neither the wife who loved him so mutely, nor the mistresses, nor the son who loved him longest, understood his utter loneliness nor the dream of a snow white charger and a hill of ice. They could not guess the fierce longing for an unattainable ideal that sent him bitter with desire for the world that might be, reeling and carousing through the world that is.
In Rogue Herries Walpole delivers a massive, vital, full-blooded novel, rich in story, rich in background and incredibly rich in the portrayal of one of the most fascinating characters in literature. (from amazon.com)
Four episodes of approximately one hour each.
Dramatised by Eric Pringle and directed by David Blount.
