What are your favourite descriptions of places or settings from classic works? Something that makes you feel a place rather than just see it? One of my characters is going to quote it to another, to show him that books can transport you to another world. At the moment she uses the description of Manderley in Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier) but it's not the right tone - Manderley here is sinister, and I want something more inviting. Last night, I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to be as I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me. There was a padlock and a chain upon the gate. I called in my dream to the lodge-keeper, and had no answer, and peering closer through the rusted spokes of the gate I saw that the lodge was uninhabited. No smoke came from the chimney, and the little lattice windows gaped forlorn. Then, like all dreamers, I was possessed of a sudden with supernatural powers and passed like a spirit through the barrier before me. Nearly all the classics I love I have on audiobook rather than paper/Kindle, so I'm really struggling to find them. Googling hasn't been much help either.
