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 was it like to love, live, and rebel in Britain during the 19th and 20th centuries? These beloved British novels offer three dramatically different but universally recognisable experiences.

Read by three luminaries of the stage and screen: Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, and Sir John Gielgud.

Feel the pang of awakened desire, the ache of loneliness and the sting of trouble up ahead in three stories that continue to hold great resonance for the 21st-century listener.

This collection includes:

  • Silas Marner by George Eliot, read by Dame Judi Dench
  • Sons and Lovers by D. H. Lawrence, read by Sir Ian McKellen
  • Bleak House by Charles Dickens, read by Sir John Gielgud
