    PDF/EPUB chickenshedcafe.uk ò The Vicar of Wakefield PDF ñ The Vicar MOBI :à vicar epub, wakefield pdf, The Vicar download, The Vicar of Wakefield KindleI know that this is a classic I had it recommended to me at a very early age by Louisa May Alcott via Jo March and with that august endorsement did not ever think that it could be anything less than utterly charmingIn spite of that it has taken 45 years for me to get around to reading it and I wish I had waited 45 Perhaps it is me but I found nothing of worth in the book The characters are undeveloped the plot such as it is was antiuated before it was written and has been done to death and better done since It is supposedly a humorous book I found very little of wit about it and nothing that actually made me laugh If it is a satire it is a very poor one to make one wonder if it is or not Swift's contemporary essay certainly leaves no doubt in the mind that i

    PDF/EPUB chickenshedcafe.uk ò The Vicar of Wakefield PDF ñ The Vicar MOBI :à vicar epub, wakefield pdf, The Vicar download, The Vicar of Wakefield KindleMuch like the Biblical story of Job but in a nineteenth century English setting this tale of extreme misfortune suffered by an English vicar—followed in the end by the restoration of his former life—is a model for living through such extremes with exemplary alacrity The vicar is described as a natural born preacher who takes every opportunity to pontificate—first to his family and later to his fellow debtor's prison inmates—on the virtues of faithful patience when dealing with the calamities of life These exhortations are included in the text of this book which allows the reader to also be the recipient of these sermonsOne can take the novel's plot at face value and consider it to be a sentimental work containing a moral lesson However cynical critics have suggested that it is be a satire on such sentimentality and that it shows the uselessn
