Horatio Hornblower by C. S. Forester
For those of you who have not had the good fortune of reading the original Horatio Hornblower series (I read them in my teens, and am re-reading them now) this is a teaser of a great BBC version you should get ahold of. As I continue to transcribe Casebook 7 ‘Principessa,’ I find that I am drawn to literature preceding the 1900s for my tone and even the words I choose. So I hope you enjoy this little treat from one of the great fiction writers of his time!
