Summary

William Collins Books and Decca Records are proud to present ARGO Classics, a historic catalogue of classic fiction read by some of the world’s most renowned voices. Originally released as vinyl records, these expertly abridged and remastered stories are now available to download for the first time. 
What did it mean to be a woman in the Georgian and Victorian periods? These beloved novels offer three dramatically different, but universally recognisable, experiences. 
Whether it is the drama of sisterhood, the trials and tribulations of romantic encounters, or the struggles of being a writer in a male world, each story holds just as much resonance for the female experience as they did on first publication. 
These classic stories are read by two-time Academy Award winner, Glenda Jackson; Fawlty Towers’ Pruncella Scales; and Dame Judi Dench. 
This collection includes: 
• Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, read by Glenda Jackson 
• Silas Marner by George Eliot, read by Dame Judi Dench 
• Emma by Jane Austen, read by Prunella Scales 
For fans of Jane Austen (Mansfield Park), Mark Twain (Adventures of Huckleberry Finn), Rocket Classic Collection (Emma), F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby), and Charlotte Brontë (The Professor).
