Clarissa: History of a Young Lady

Richard Armitage is wearing a cravat again, sort of. BBC radio 4 has a four part radio dramatization of the 1748 novel, "Clarissa: History of a Young Lady," by Samuel Richardson, now available for listening.

There is also a movie based on the book, starring Sean Bean, from 1991, called "Clarissa."


  1. I loved Richard Armitage in North and South... such a great movie.
    Wish I had BBC radio!

  2. Erin,
    I love North and South, too!
    You can still listen because they have it in a BBCi audio player - I live in the US and was able to listen to part last night.
    Try the link if you are interested :)

  3. Wow, that's Sean Bean. I'm a big fan of his acting (one of the better actors out there in my opinion), so it's cool to see him in interesting movies like this (long before he had that big role in Lord of the Rings).

  4. Look at those eyes! Swoon. I think there should be 'staring at lady intensely and longingly' classes for modern gents. You'd sure get further with us than buying a drink at Local Bar. ;)

  5. Alpha Otter, I need to watch the whole LOTR movies, I have only seen the first one.

    Meg, I agree about the swooning!
