For today’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday I wanted to include something that covers several mediums.
Broadcast in 1938 to an unsuspecting American audience, history would have us believe that the story from the pen of HG Wells, had its listeners fearing that the New Jersey countryside was under attack from Martians.
In this clip, the late Richard Burton narrates for Jeff Wayne’s musical version of this intriguing and at times, terrifying story.
For me, this is an amazing piece of fiction, brought to life by brilliant storytelling and music. Artwork is represented as well and if you add the two major feature films that were also made on the back of this tale, it’s pretty much captured the imagination of artists as a whole.
For more information on this brilliant weekly challenge, organised by Colleen Chesebro check out her blog here.
I hope you enjoyed this and don’t have nightmares.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Wednesday evening.
Until the next time.
