William Harrison Ainsworth : Jack Sheppard

Statement of a juvenile offender: "I have been nine times in prison and once discharged, and am now waiting trial... I never saw 'Jack Sheppard' performed. I have read his life and heard a great deal about him. I think that those who read his life are not likely to reap any good, or those that see the play performed, I am sure will get no good."

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: T.E.      Print: Book
